My Review of Ryder’s Surrender Hell Yeah #22 by Sable Hunter


Ryder’s Surrender
Hell Yeah! Book 22
Sable Hunter



Ryder and Pepper McCoy are the pampered sisters of the Highland McCoys – Heath, Philip, Jaxson and Tennessee. The brothers have always been over-protective of the girls, vetting every man who is brave enough to even ask them on a date. Both sisters are spirited, giving their brothers a run for their money – but one is about to give them a heart attack.

Two men are vying for the hand of Ryder McCoy, Samson Duke and his brother Gideon. But this isn’t a rivalry, the Duke brothers plan on sharing her. They are determined to lasso, corral, and mark the feisty filly with the DD brand. Resisting one of the Duke boys is difficult, keeping both of them at arm’s length may very well prove to be impossible. But who should she choose? One or both? Could she break one brother’s heart to gain the other? Ryder is torn between keeping the relationship with her family intact and following her own desires. To complicate matters, there’s more going on than meets the eye.

The Dukes and the McCoys may very well have a common enemy. When Ryder becomes the pawn in a madman’s scheme, all of the men who love her will have to work together to save her. Still, entrusting their baby sister to the wild, powerful Dukes is not something the McCoy boys think they can accept.

Will Ryder bend to her family’s and society’s expectations or will she surrender to what her soul and body craves? She soon finds out that true love doesn’t always follow the rules.

Right from the prologue we get a sense of Ryder McCoy, she always had to have two of everything. This is a favorite scene.

“Please, Papa, I want them both,” Ryder pleaded with her father, looking up at him with big, blue eyes shimmering with tears. She clutched two squirming lab puppies tight to her chest. “I can’t just leave one by himself, he would be so lonely.”

Christian McCoy dry-scrubbed dry-scrubbed his face. “Your sister and brothers each chose one puppy apiece. Why do you have to have two?” He let out a long sigh, meeting his beautiful wife’s amused gaze, as she watched on indulgently. “Two horses, two puppies, two dolls. What will be next?”

“Let her have them, dear.” Carolyn sat on a bale of hay, sewing a button on Tennessee’s shirt. “I swear, this boy is so rough on his clothes. He seems to rip off a button every day.”

“All right, all right, go.” He held up his hand and pointed toward the house. “Don’t let me see you with both those dogs up in the bed, Ryder. Make them sleep on the floor where they belong.”

“Yes, Papa.” Ryder jumped up and scampered off, her long, brown braid flying in the wind behind her.

“What’s up with our oldest daughter? She’s never satisfied with one of anything. Two cookies, two chicken legs, two candy bars. Ryder seems to think she has to grab onto everything with both hands or she won’t have enough.”

“All of our children are special, Christian. Ryder has a big heart; she has love enough for two.”

Christian went to his beloved wife and pulled her into his arms. “She must have inherited that trait from you. You make each member of our family feel like they’re the most special person in the world.”
Hunter, Sable. Ryder’s Surrender (Hell Yeah!) (Kindle Locations 53-67).Kindle Edition.

Now she is saved from a rattlesnake by one of the notorious Duke brothers and her world is about to change.

Samson and Gideon know from the start that Ryder is the woman for them. The one they would love forever. Now they have to convince her.

Her father recovering from several stokes, her brothers making her feel guilty and her sister and sister-in-laws standing by her side in what appears to me a never ending battle. That is until her brother Heath makes a mistake in judgement that could have a disastrous result.

This journey to loving two men isn’t an easy one for Ryder and this book had me in tears more than once. I laughed, cried, held my breath and cried some more.

I only have seven books in this series, now I am even more convinced I need to read them all!
