Overall, this was an enjoyable read. It took me a little bit to get into it, but when I did, I flew through this book. I was really looking forward to Marvel's story and he was certainly the moodiest and darkest of all the brothers. Clover was a real sweetheart and was the perfect blend for Marvel. Their romance was a little too insta for me, but they certainly had a great connection. The family side of the story was a real plus point and I loved the scenes with the brothers and their Grandpa . This was another good story that was action packed and kept my attention throughout.
I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A-freakin-mazing ending to this wonderful series!!
Throughout this series, I have waited for Marvel's story. He was the little brother that kind of stood in the background for a while...until he couldn't take anyone hurting his family anymore. He had a drive unlike his brothers. He was willing to go above and beyond a dangerous situation, but sometimes those chances go too far.
Clover was a girl with a head full of dreams and a heart of gold. She put all she had into becoming the nurse she dreamt of being. Because of that, fate was placed in her healing hands. Her life would forever change because of a family full of cowboys and a grandfather who brought them into her world.
"I've never seen someone so determined and damn right hell bent on not being saved. Yet, when my lips touched his marred skin I've never felt higher."
Marvel and Clover butted heads...a lot, but that didn't mean Clover couldn't try to get through Marvel's broken spirit. I'm not going to lie, they each had their own way of breaking my heart. Whether it was because of Clover's determination to become successful no matter what her family said. Or the fact that Marvel was so broken, he couldn't even see past the pain.
I knew this book was going to be a doozy! I knew my emotions woud run high throughout the pages. I didn't expect to tear up in almost every. single. chapter!!
"I'd save you all over again. I'm sorry, but I would. I barely know you Marvel Slatter, and I know that you're worth it."
"I know deep in my gut I'm branding a legacy and getting our pride back."
I also loved that, like the other two books, HJ Bellus incorporates all the characters in every book. You don't feel like you're missing any of their stories.
The Slatter family is a tight knit group, and the way they rally around each other is wonderful. This story shows that even when one member feels their world falling apart, the others are right there to pick him back up and push him forward again.
"She saved me, and I've destroyed her."
"I didn't pick him, my heart did."
Thank you, HJ Bellus!
This book was everything I hoped it would be and more! The emotions, the tears, the plot twists and turns, the swoonworthy moments, and the feeling of a family united is what made this book-this series-what it was!
The ending left me a blubbering mess, but it was absolute perfection! Well done, HJ!
"Maybe we can find each other."
"I think we can, Clover."
Marvel is the youngest of the Slatter brothers and he was always the quiet, calculating and intelligent one. But when he saw how much their family's life and legacy—the Silver Star Ranch—has been drastically going downhill, been messed with and stomped on, he knew he had to act and do something about it to the point that he (almost) didn't care if it was a suicide mission. He had one thing in mind—he has to save his family's ranch and get that redemption they all needed even if he had to go behind his brothers' backs and do it alone. And then they could all live free. Although what he did was rash and stupid, I really can't blame him because if he didn't do it, he wouldn't have met his match in Clover or things would still be the same for his family. Or even worse. I seriously fell in love with Marvel. His personality was just perfectly imperfect. Yes, he had his douchey, stubborn moments, especially in the beginning with Clover, but he had so much going on, brewing inside himself that he was struggling to deal with. If Clover wasn't there or they didn't meet, hell, I would've went to Marvel's rescue and saved him myself. (Jesus, now that I'm recalling everything that happened while I'm writing this, it's all crashing back down and my heart wants to explode all over again from the emotions brought about by this book.)
Clover Lee has her own secrets, issues and reservations. But she's truly a caring, selfless and very loving lady. She may be a nurse, but all that care and concern she has for the Slatters comes straight from her heart and soul. She treated and considered them her family, especially since her own family is so whacked up, even back when she didn't know the Slatters that well then. She may have grown up her whole life in the city, but once the Slatters took her in, she never hesitated to change and try out living in the ranch with them. Heck, she embraced it even. Personally, I admire the hell out of Clover. If anyone deserves salvation, I think it's this woman. She has a pure heart and she not only cared for one Slatter, but all of them. Especially Granddad. Her dynamic with the family is just perfect and such a joy to see. Yes, she's lucky to have found a new family with the Slatters, but I think they're pretty much lucky to have her as an addition to the family as well.
And let's not forget Granddad here. He truly is a legacy himself. He had so much strength and words that will strike so deep, they'll be left engrained in your head no matter what. He was the pillar in this entire series. It never would've been as amazing as it is, if not for this wise old man. He'll always be the great Marve Slatter who's stern, yet loves intensely, puts his family before and beyond anything else, and packs a cocky sense of humor like no other.
It has been such a great journey reading this series, from the very first book until this one. It will teach you so many life lessons while you go about the life of each Slatter. It isn't just about the country/ranch living. It isn't just about the sexy, smart and confident cowboys. It isn't only about the romance. It's about family, pride and redemption. It's about a legacy that has been saved and redeemed and will live on for many, many years. HJ Bellus has most definitely poured so much heart and soul into this series and the entire journey it takes you on is worth every minute of your time and every beat of your heart. Branding A Legacy specifically will be unforgettable for me with everything that happened and all the emotions it was able to bring out and stir inside of me.
Clover is a Cali girl. Well not really, she's shy, reserved, and kind, nothing like her family. She is sent to the small town from California to live with her aunt and uncle. Upon arriving there she gets a job doing what she loves and was born to do, be a nurse.
Marvel thought he had plans set in stone and was going to get to take down Saint, only it was an ambush causing marvel to loose both his best friend and an attempt at loosing at his life. Clover was on her way home from the hospital after a shift of taking care of old man slater when in the middle of the road she came in contact with the missing slater brother. Nothing could prepare either of them on the journey and trial life was about to set these 2 on.
Whoah! You know they always say they save the best for last! And even though I love all 3 slater brothers marvel has by far got to be my favorite brother! And how could you not fall in love with clover and continue to fall in love with granddad! This series is great and I hate to see it end but I'm glad everything came full circle!
ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.
You know how some books have a ton of angst and you find yourself wanting to smack the male or female protagonist, or both?? This is NOT that book. Marvel and Clover know what they want and don't play games. I LOVE that.
This book also has some suspense as the back story from the first book continues along to a dramatic conclusion. Author H.J. Bellus made me laugh, cry, and swoon with this book. And not only did we get an epilogue, we also got a "Where the Slatters are now..." which I loved so much! Why can't more authors do this? We always want to know what happens to the characters we fall in love with, years in the future.
I truly enjoyed this book as well as this entire trilogy. Maybe we can get a spin-off with Sterling???
