Release Day Blitz & Review
8 Second Decision
(Silver Star #1)
HJ Bellus
~ Synopsis ~
Merek Slatter is the wild card on the Silver Star Ranch in Texas and always has been. He’s blessed with his granddaddy’s love of the ranch yet haunted with chasing that gold buckle eight seconds at a time. 

Tensions are high on the ranch when circumstances threaten to take it under. His dad and brothers pressure him to stay home and become an active cowboy on the ranch. However, Merek is addicted to the road and rodeo. He’s home anytime he can be and provides plenty of money to keep the family ranch afloat, but sometimes it takes more than what’s in the bank to protect tradition. 

Now home on a three-month break, Merek finds himself all tied up with the new girl in town. She’s quiet and reserved but there’s something about Challis’ green eyes and feisty attitude that makes her irresistible. When he runs into her at a rodeo and catches a glimpse of her on horseback all hopes of leaving her alone flies out the window. 

There are several rumors floating around town about her, however that doesn’t stop Merek from going after what he wants. He knows she’s off limits and only full of trouble, but Merek thrives on trouble and adrenaline. 

Then the road calls again and it’s time to leave. 
Eight Seconds
Gold Buckles
And the high…
What will he choose?
 ~ Review ~
 If you are looking for a read full of sass, sexy cowboys, intrigue, suspense and love then you have come to the right place.  I LOVED this book!  I loved the banter between Merek and Challis.  Although they fought like hell they loved even harder.  
Alike in more ways than the obvious, these two will have you laughing, crying and yearning right along with them.  It takes a lot to make me gasp out loud but HJ Bellus sure got me, tears and all.

Challis has more on her plate than most can handle and being raised solely by her father has made her tough as nails.  Dealing with the loss of her father, estate issues and the battle within her heart you can't help but sympathize with her.

Merek has strong family ties to his brothers and his grandad.  His father, well he could do without.  Striving to save his families ranch is enough to stress anyone out, but being met with sabotage fuels the fire within Merek and his siblings.

Challis and Merek rodeo for the love of the sport but come to realize that sometimes there's more to life than a gold buckle and a check.  Sometimes the love of another person can make you the richest person in the world.

Pull up your boot straps and get ready for the next installment of the Silver Star Series which will give us more of these two and hopefully some more answers!
