For four years, Silas Anderson has fought the urge to chase Mirabelle Sutton, knowing his rejection is what caused her to run.

3.5 Stars for me

This is another great lunch break quickie. Not much bulk to it, but enough to keep you entertained while reading.

Mira left the ranch life as soon as she could. Her heart was broken there was no need to stay and feel that hurt day after day. When her brother dies, she returns home to take care of his affairs, the ranch, and possibly mend her broken heart.

Silas is happy to have her home, he made Dalton a promise to look after her. To take care of her and tell her that he loves her

What a wonderful western romance!
This was a wonderful and in my opinion to short! I want more lol! Silas the main character and Maribelle have not seen each other for years and Maribelle is returning to the ranch where she grew up on, in some very sad circumstances. They don't have the best relationship... at first .... but man let me tell you they sizzle when they have their first meet up!
This read had all the emotional elements spot on you can feel what the author was writing and wanting you

I thoroughly enjoyed this second chance romance! It hooked me from the beginning and I wanted to devour every single page until the very end. Lovable characters, fun banter, plenty of steam, and a perfect, little HEA.

The writing style of his author made it easy to get lost in the pages, making me feel as if I were a part of the story.

Silas is a super delicious cowboy who definitely made my lady bits happy. And Mirabelle... she is sexy & sassy - the perfect heroine. The sparks flew when these t

This is a standalone book that takes place on a Colorado horse ranch. It hits lifelong friend to lovers, best friend's little sister and second chance love story lines.

Maribelle fled the ranch just after her 18th birthday to Maryland, where she attended a university without trips home during her college career. At the start of the book she just graduated.

Silas was raised along with Mirabelle and her older brother, Dalton. The horse ranch is the only life he has known and Dalton is his best frien

Taryn Plendl has done it again. She is an amazing and versatile writer. She chose to write a "cowboy" story that touched my heart. A second chance romance that pulls at your heart strings. Mirabelle must return to the only home she has ever known when tragedy strikes her family. She fled her family's ranch in Colorado to pursue an education at a college in Baltimore and to flee "HIM", Silas. Taryn Plendl's stories have something for everyone.

I had never read Taryn before and jumped at the chance to read her newest book. I fell in love with her writing style and characters. What began as the absolute worst thing to experience, the death of your sole remaining family member turned into a worse moment for Mirabelle who had to deal with her brother's best friend, Silas. Through joint heartbreak, with the help of masterfully crafted supporting characters (I love Caroline) the truth comes out. How can two of the stubbornest people you wil ...more

4.25 Stars! This was my first book by Taryn Plendl and a cowboy second-chance romance! I haven't read a cowboy story in so long. I have to say Silas was definitely the perfect man. He falls for his best-friend's sister but holds back and does the honorable thing. Does that endear him to Mirabelle? Well, not exactly. She RUNS! ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! One misunderstanding sets up years of separation and tragedy brings Silas and Mirabelle back together. This was a sweet romance where wires get uncross ...more

This book had my attention from the first page and I finished it in one sitting. Silas loved Mira for years but never told her. Heartbreak had her running. Loss had her returning. The two of them together was like waiting for a volcano to erupt. Their love for one another was strong but they were both stubborn. This book made me laugh, cry and fall in love. If you love a sexy alfa cowboy this is the one for you.

This books starts out with a tragic event that will bring two stubborn people back into each others orbit. It turned in to a sweet country romance full of emotions.

Silas and Mira are both dealing with loss and hurt. But I think together they can make it through anything.

This is a story full of love and hope!

I will be anxiously waiting to see how Taryn plans to tame the next cowboy!!

This was a fun and fast read. The characters are very likable and the story is very well written.
I'm not usually into cowboy romances and second chance books and this one is both, but I throughly enjoyed the story and the storytelling.
It is fun and sexy and I'm looking forward to reading the other characters' books.

From the dedication: "To my mom. Thank you for loving me unconditionally, even when you wanted to choke the crap out of me." to the acknowledgements I read every word that was written in this book.

Mirabelle has been away from ho0me for a while and has come home after the loss of her brother, things don't look too good when she run

Reading for Summer Bingo Reading Challenge

I came into this blind again, most of the books I'll be reading for this challenge, I have no idea what I'll get into. The story started with Mirabelle going back to her hometown because her brother died. And this is where it'll start, when she meets his brother's friend, Silas, again.

The main problem in the story is a big MISCOMMUNICATION and a little dash of PRIDE. The way the problem was solved is something I loved. (view spoiler)

I am giving this 4.5 stars, the only reason for that is I wish it was just longer. I love this series. Silas is fun and witty. Silas is a quick read but the book is full of emotion. With the death of Mira's brother and Silas' best friend bring Mira back to the ranch and the man she did everything to run from. The tension between Silas and Mira is one that we all can relate to, friends turned to lovers. If you want a quick fun read with a hot cowboy(s) this book is a must-read. I can not wait to ...more

For me there is nothing better than a HEA cowboy story. This book was a very good story, a little too short, but still a complete story. It definitely is a story where you will need a Kleenex once or twice, it will bring tears to your eyes. I love the cover. A new author for me but I enjoyed her writing style, the story flowed great.

Great second chance romance

Silas was the first book I have read by Taryn Plendl but will definitely not be my last. After tragedy brings Silas and Mirabelle back together after four years, they final get their chance for a happily ever after. I truly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it.

Sweet read with a Alpha cowboy what more can you ask for. I enjoyed this read was entertaining emotional. My only criticism or feedback could have drawn out the ‘Rick’ situation longer more things happen over time would have made it a bit more suspenseful. Other then that a great read

Silas

I have a great love for stubborn characters, and Mirabelle had stubbornness in spades. She was also secure and smart enough to listen when Silas spoke. A sweet story, with a sad beginning.

Silas is book one in the Sutton Ranch series by Taryn Plendl. This was also the first book I have read by this author and it will not be the last! I am absolutely in love with this book! These characters broke my heart and mended it back together with all the squishy moments littered throughout.

I love reading about a good sexy cowboy. I only skimmed the description so I wasn't really sure what I was getting into but I liked the story.

Silas and Mira grew up together but after a falling out there was bad blood between them. I'm always love a hate to love type story, and that's what we got. Both main characters were different but had a stubborn streak a mile wide and I really liked that.

The plot was fast paced but well written. You can take the girl off the ranch but you can't take the r

Mirabelle has been gone from the ranch for four years, running to the big city. When tragedy strikes , Mira must come home to the ranch and the face she ran from. Silas. Silas is the true definition of a cowboy. Rugged, strong, hard working and sexy. Not to mention stubborn and bossy.

Stunning!! That is the first word that comes to mind when thinking about this book. Simply stunning. The impeccable writing draws you so far into the book that you can actually see the characters and feel all their

Silas was a heartwarming story about two people who have known each other most their lives and are reunited when tragedy strikes. Both Silas and Maribelle have very rough childhoods. They both learned about loss at a very young age so it seemed fitting as to why that's the reason they reunite.

This is a pretty quick read. It very straight forward and to the point. We did get a little back story into these two characters but I would have loved more.

I did enjoy the storyline and the characters. C

Taryn is a USA Today Bestselling Author who is also a lover of books and wine, usually enjoying them together. Writing has been a way for her to step away from chaotic reality and live a bit through her fun and sometimes damaged characters. You will almost always find a Happy Ever After at the end of her stories. She can't help it, it's an addiction.
