R me I think perhaps it was because of Mia I found her character so relatable and saw a lot of myself in her with her insecurities and lack of self confidence The fact that she was passionate about her grapes and wine was appealing as well I know very little about wine besides the fact that I like it and found it interesting to learn about the making of it Moore does an amazing ob at describing the landscape and I felt like I was thereI loved the Reid and Mia story line Let me ust say that the pages were smoking hot in some parts and the chemistry was through the roof I was routing for them the whole way Their attraction felt believable because of their history and it wasn t far fetched like some I have readI am going to make a point of going back and reading the first book and will be watching for the third one This book was provided by Netgalley and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewAfter reading the first book in the Silver Creek series I was so excited for this one and it did not disappointI love series about close knit clans and reading about the Knowles family is such a comfort read for me There is affectionate sparring and needling but they Knowles genuinely enjoy being together and it translates perfectly onto the pageIn the first book we were introduced to Ward s playboy brother Reid I have to say Reid first book we were introduced to Ward s playboy brother Reid I have to say Reid outlook on women is hilariousTo him women were like a splendid menu Why forsake the pleasure of sampling all those delicious creations for one single dish He wasn t sure he could do it for a month let alone the rest of his lifeHe was a fun character to read about Reid may have been a playboy but he wasn t one to lead women on He was level headed had a knack for helping a business flourish and he adored his familyMia was a bit rough around The Edges But She edges but she no less likable Mia had only one person in the world her uncle Thomas When her uncle Thomas decides it s time to move on from his vineyard and start enjoying life again after losing his wife he leaves their vineyard and essentially her in Reid s careReid and Mia have a history and it s one Mia has never uite been able to forgive him for What I really liked about this story was that while Mia held a grudge it slipped away as she spent time with Reid It wasn t something she was actively clinging to she d ust never been able to forget And for me that s one of Laura Moore s strengths no needless drama Her adult characters make informed adult decisionsI really like when the author stays true to her characters voice Reid for example having grown up on a ranch constantly thought in those termsAs for Mia she was staring at his erection as if her eyes were going to pop out He hoped that was a good sign Because he was desperate to be inside her the instinct as all powerful as the one driving a stallion to claim and mount a mareIt may not be very flattering but he knew better than to say it aloud I think it definitely reflects the life he lives and I loved how Reid s thoughts stayed true to who he wasThe pacing of this story was perfect for me I didn t feel like Mia and Reid fell in love too uickly they were both too stubborn for that but there was always something going onI also enjoyed the secondary characters in this story and I can t wait to see what is in store for the last Knowles sibling It s going to take one hell of a man to pull uinn away from her animalsI definitely recommend this book if you like a small town setting with cowboys and a sweet sassy heroine who isn t afraid to give as good as she get. Ly aware that the teen heartthrob has matured into a devastatingly handsome playboy and the budding winemaker refuses to let down her guard But one taste of unbridled passion changes things From Reid’s first intoxicating kiss to his unexpectedly tender seduction Mia is swept into a passionate affair that could tear her heart to pieces or give her everything she has ever wante.
