Brantley Marbury lived and breathed the life of a rancher.
The Running M Ranch, his stallions, were worth more than gold.
After losing his father he was thrust into the role of sole proprietor sooner than anticipated. He’s not complaining though.
After six generations of Marbury’s running the RMR, he knew where his life was headed.
What he didn’t know was that the girl from feed store was going consume him deeper than the ranch. He didn’t know he was going to love her more either.
Adilynn James had dreams of getting out of Hixson, Texas from the moment she could talk.
She wanted to grow up, go to school, travel the world. Marriage and children were in the plan. Someday.
Well she grew up, she started school. Travelling didn’t happen.
Marriage and babies?
Brantley Marbury is doing his damnedest to change her mind.
Except… After one too many drinks, a deal gone bad, and a predator on the prowl, they may never make it to the marriage part of their dreams.
Let alone the babies.
KL Donn has quickly become one of my favorite authors, and has been added to short list of one-click authors. Brantley’s Way didn’t let me down in the slightest (though I can see how the Adair empire is effecting her writing…) I absolutely LOVED every single page of this novel and cannot wait to for book 2 (wait, THERE IS A BOOK 2 RIGHT?)
Brantley meets Adilynn by chance, but when he does he is knocked out of his boots. Due to her home life, he has to make a decision on whether he wants to pursue her or not. His answer is pretty easy: HELL YES. Adilynn isn’t so sure of his intentions. She’s basically single handedly raising her brother, Luke, while her mother runs around hating her children. The whole town seems to ignore how Ady and Luke’s mother treats them. Brantley doesn’t like this ONE bit.
Brantley has his own issues though, and they include trying to protect Ady and Luke from their mother and the town, as well as his uncle coming back to town. He also has to deal with getting Ady to trust him, getting Luke to trust him, and getting a surly horse to do what he wants.
I loved this book from page one to the end. It has an over protective big sister, an alpha male, a cowboy, and a ranch. I’ve always loved country books, something about a rough cowboy has always made my heart beat a little faster, but I am obsessed with this book. It had the perfect amount of overworked damsel who was trying hard not to be in distress, plus some suspense, and an alpha cowboy who wants to support his woman while also wanting her where he can see her at all times.
Do yourself a favor y’all, heh, go pick up this book!
