Life on his ranch could be their future. If they can overcome their past.
Felicity’s life story reads like the script to a bad soap opera. Girl’s high-school boyfriend becomes a drug addict. Girl falls for boyfriend’s best friend. Girl leaves them both behind only to return home years later for murdered ex-boyfriend’s funeral. Now she’s back home in Montana, ready to start fresh. She’s got a long list of amends to make and relationships to rebuild, including one with the man who has owned her heart for sixteen years.
Silas doesn’t need much. He’s got a great horse, close friends and the Lucky Heart ranch, but something has always been missing. He’s not an idiot. He knows the missing piece is Felicity. And now that she’s returned to Prescott, he’s got a second chance to win her heart. This time, the only thing standing in his way is history. Drudging up the past is going to be about as painful as playing tug of war with barbed wire. But if they can heal old wounds, he’ll get the girl he should have had all along.
Finally! I got my Silas story... and Lis too. Silas is by far my favorite character. Jess has the top two, but Silas has my whole heart, from page one in book one (sorry, Jess). I really wanted to read this book since I finished book one, and I have to tell you guys, I was not let down on this one.
The story of Silas and Lissy was so hush, hush that I did not know what to think. I went into this book mind open and I loved it. These two have past. The past that no matter how many years (more than a decade) come between them, always come back to haunt them. After Wes' funeral, everything changed for Lissy. She came back to the town she swore never to come back. That means good news to Silas because he can finally have her back, even though some ghosts are still present. Lissy has to erase everything that people think of her, her bitchiness and sarcasm. Silas has to dig into the past to actually understand that they were meant to be, forever and ever.
I'm so swooned by Silas that I'm a little biased in this review. I love it all. I loved the romance, but the action too. This book gives enough material for the next book to come. I'm super curious how Beau will go down on his knees for a city girl, or should I call her a damsel in distress? Also, have to point out that Lissy was a totally badass when shit went down.
Now, why not five stars? I wanted to, really. But the end was too rushed. One moment we were just barely surviving a near-death experience, then we were making friends with the ogre of the father-in-law, and then, BAM, epilogue. WTF. I was mad. But the epilogue was so good that I ended up giving it four and half stars. Still, I recommend this series a lot.
PS, GORGEOUS COVER! <3
