Sometimes the heart wants what it can’t have.
That’s the motto Silas Mackenzie, the president of The Dixie Wardens MC, has lived by since he was a young man.
Now he’s well on the way to middle age, has three grown children, and he’s lusting after a woman he should definitely stay away from.
Especially not one that his ex-girlfriend had given birth to, and happened to be only twenty seven years old.
Sawyer isn’t a young girl at heart, though.
She’s seen the inside of a jail cell for eight long years, and every one of them she spent paying for a crime she didn’t commit.
Silas Mackenzie knows as soon as he sees her that the girl has sacrificed enough.
And maybe…just maybe…so has Silas.
It’s time for Silas Mackenzie to get what he deserves, and put a little bit of happy back into Sawyer’s world, one rough, bearded kiss at a time.

“I like your vest.”

“It’s called a cut,” he muttered laughingly.

“What’s a cut?” I asked.

The hail and rain got worse, hitting the roof and the side of the garage like tiny little battering rams.

“A leather vest,” he quipped.

I giggled against his chest, turning my face so it could rest against his neck.

He growled when I kissed his exposed throat, but otherwise didn’t move.

“Joking aside, it’s my club. The cut is me. The top rocker, which is the white banner at the top, is our club name,” he said.

I felt along his back as he spoke, feeling what he was saying as he explained what each one was.

“The bottom rocker is our club’s location. We’re in Benton. We have other chapters all over the south,” he explained. “On the front is my name, club title, and the city again.”

I knew he was explaining this to me to get my mind off the fact that the roof was shaking around us, literally.

“I can’t believe Dallas hasn’t at least come to check on me,” I muttered darkly.

He tangled my hands in my hair, and I looked up at him…or where I thought he was.

“Your brother is a shit head. And I don’t think he even realizes that he is. Because if he did, he wouldn’t be telling your parents anything about how you were. My guess is that he really is worried, but he doesn’t know how to handle that worry. So, he closes himself off, telling himself that by telling your mother how he thinks you’re doing, he’s helping. Which, in reality, he’s not,” Silas said. “Maybe it’s time you had a talk with him, let him know you don’t appreciate being treated as a child.”

I agreed, and I’d already planned on doing that.

“I was going to do that today, but then he had that huge freakin’ party,” I told him darkly. “And I had to park in the street.”

He lowered his mouth down to mine.

“Well, then it’s a good thing he’s preoccupied, because right about now I could really fuck you on top of his car and he’d never even know,” he said tightly, lifting my body off the bench and laying me down on the car’s hood.

I laughed. “You know,” I said as he stripped my shorts from me. “This is my brother’s pride and joy.”

“Well your brother’s pride and joy is about to become our fuck stand,” he growled, then he was on me.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.


Hello Silas, you gorgeous alpha male, you. Where have you been all my life and will you dump Sawyer so that I can have a shot at that myself? Ahh you are one sexy beast.
Silas is the Prez of the MC and is not afraid of anything, he also doesn't take no bull at any time,  going through life with a devil may care attitude. But if people only knew the real Silas they would see that although he gives off the impression of being fearless, there is one thing he fears more than anything. The man who tried to hurt his family years ago, the one that somehow managed to slip through the cracks is at it again on the loose. Just as he finds himself having true feelings for a woman again. What should he do? Which direction should he take?
Sawyer is finally free to live after being locked away for 8 years for a crime that never should have happened, only to find out the deadbeat she thought was on her side has been lying all along. Then she meets the sexy man known as Silas, and although she knows he is older, she doesn't care one bit. She wants him from the beginning but knows he would never want her after what she has done, she thinks maybe she should just give up trying to get to him. But good things come to those  who wait and she has waited a very long time.
These two hook up and nothing can stand in the way of true love. Silas was the bomb, never allowing Sawyer to feel less than desirable, and was just there for full support no matter the time. Sawyer was all about her Silas, she found herself falling for him so quick  and so hard she was sure it couldn't last.
There was a lot of action in this and I loved how Silas took charge of the things that happened to our Sawyer. He saw to it that the wrongs that happened to her were righted and was not swayed in the least by anyone trying to stop him. The tenderness he showed her when she was having nightmares was so gentle, I was in awe of how he was the perfect boyfriend. When he opened up to Sawyer over his biggest fears and she stood by him no matter the situation, found me addicted to this book . As a matter of fact when I finished I started reading it again.
There was parts that I cringed and almost not believing they were happening, but they were so well written that you could only push through the words and know that everything was going to be just fine in the end.
I was so glad to see some things were settled for our Prez and can't wait to get the next book on this series. I love them more and more as they go.
Definitely a 5 star. Keep up the good work
