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 to 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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was definitely a book I had a hard time putting down! Too much going on and I was so engrossed in needing my happy ending. Brantley’s Way is not your typical cowboy romance. That just means the main focus in this book was not ranch life. While Brantley himself is a possessive and protective alpha, Adilynn is strong and protective as well. Unfortunately, while Ady takes care of others, there is no one taking care of her. Ady needs caring just as much as the younger brother she adores and protects as well as the horses she cares for. For all her weaknesses, I found Ady to be a remarkably strong, young woman. I admired her spirit and loyal, loving, caring personality. I hated the horrific situations she was forced to endure and I hated her mother a hundred times more. My only disappointment in this book was that I didn’t get to see karma bite Ady’s nasty mother in the a**!
There is a good deal of characters introduced in this book and I can only hope the author will write about them. Another reason I loved this book was because of my love for horses and all things cowboys. Yeah, I admit it, this is my favorite romance trope. One more plus for me is that I found a new author to stalk. While I have seen KL Donn’s name all around the book-loving community, Brantley’s Way was my first read by her. She has over twenty available books to chose from. Actually, I already know what I’ll be reading by KL Donn next. You’ll just have to wait for my next review to find out. 😉
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
