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.

Lani Lynn Vale has really tackled some hard subjects in this installment of the Dixie Warden's.
So when I started reading I had the first bump to overcome. The heroine Sawyer was younger but that's not a big deal to me. NO, the problem came from her being his ex girlfriends daughter. 

But this author hasn't ever let me down and I was happy to know that this "ex girlfriend" wasn't much more than a good friend. No hanky panky in the family tree folks!!

I have always had a very low opinion of Silas in a lot of ways. For one I abhor cheaters. I really don't care about reasons or excuses. Cheating is always a choice. So going into this book was very very hard for me. I wanted to believe that this man who had so many men that followed him and respected him was deep down inside a good man. I wanted to believe that he could be redeemed. For me I do believe that people can change and also that who you were 20 years ago is no where near the same person you are today. Silas was no longer that man. He lived through his own mistakes and he earned every moment of regret he shouldered. But truthfully Silas did regret and he did feel bad and he owned up to it. 

OK so Sawyer comes into Silas life like a freight train full of broken pieces. She was hurting and she was scarred in so many ways. She hit it all in this tough exterior that came from protecting herself and her friend after being in prison for so long. I hated the injustice that was brought against Sawyer and Ruthie. I adored Silas for how he was determined to make it right for Sawyer.
He felt for Sawyer something that he never even came close to before. 

His heart was finally owned completely and I loved every dirty talking bossy moment of this dance they shared. 

I honestly fell for Silas completely.

 This was a true Lani book because there was passion, humor and so much suspense that I didn't want it to end. I am so happy that Lani Lynn Vale is the energizer bunny of authors because I am so addicted to her sexy stories. 
I can't wait for Sterling's book. 
Ruthie does indeed need this Hero right her wrong...
Awesome job Lani.
