ARC Review: Love Profound by Kelly Elliott

Love Profound is the second book in the Cowboys & Angels Series by Kelly Elliott. Each book is a standalone story and is easily understood on their own. Though I will say that the charactes are interconnected and for full enjoyment I would recommend reading in order if possible, even though it isn't necessary. I am loving this family that Kelly has created and I am looking forward to more in this world. 

Amelia is the baby of the Parker family and while she writes romance, she doesn't believe in it. After having her heart broken, she prefers to keep it to her stories. Wade is trying to figure out what to do next with his life, so when he gets an opportunity to change his scenery he jumps at the chance. When Amelia and Wade meet, they both find themselves drawn to one another. But can Wade show Amelia that love is real and can be found in more than just her books? 

I will admit that I struggled at times with this book, and part of that was Amelia. Though I love the Parker family and this world that Kelly has created, I found it hard at times to relate to Amelia. She came off a bit immature at times and that didn't help anything for me. I really liked Wade though, and he made up for a lot of that. He was sweet and genuinely good, and that is something I find irresistible in a hero. He had been through a lot, and it was great to see him moving forward with his life after it all. These two did have chemistry and a connection, but I wasn't fully invested because of Amelia. 

While I did enjoy this book, it didn't have quite the same feel as the first in the series did for me. Besides Amelia, I wasn't entirely sure why the Liam situation was even a part of this story. It felt unnecessary and as though there really wasn't a reason for it. I also felt like there really wasn't much conflict at all here in this story, and that had it feeling a bit flat for me. While I did still like the story, it just didn't have the spark that I normally feel with Kelly's books. I will say though that she definitely knows how to write heroes that are swoon worthy and impossible not to fall for and that was definitely the case with Wade. This one was good, and I think fans of the first book will enjoy this one.

Feature and Giveaway: Forever With You by Beverley Kendall

I’d never fallen harder for anyone than I did for Graham Prescott. The British hottie was like no other guy I’d ever met. And the attraction between us was mutual and red-hot.

I would have done and said almost anything to be with him. So I’d told him one harmless, little lie…

But it hadn’t been.

Harmless or little.

That lie nearly destroyed his life.

Seeing him again after four years stirs up feelings I have no right to feel. So I tell myself the only thing I want from him is his forgiveness. But first I have to earn his trust—something easier said than done. Especially when he makes it clear there’s only one thing he wants from me.

To stay the hell out of his life.

ARC Review: Grip by Kennedy Ryan

The one thing you need to know before starting Grip, is that if you haven't read Flow first you need to start there. It is the start of everything and really does need to be read first. Trust me, you won't regret it! As soon as I had finished Flow, I was dying to read Grip. It set up the story perfectly and I was captivated with these two in a way that I rarely am. 

Grip and Bristol first met when Bristol's brother (Grip's best friend) asked him to pick her up from the airport. But when circumstances left them both broken hearted, they went their separate ways. Now they are able to be friends again, but Grip wants everything with Bristol. Can he break through the walls that Bristol has put up, or will the risk of getting hurt again keep her from what they could have together? 

I absolutely love these two. That being said though, besides breaking their hearts they have also broken mine. There were some times that I wanted to shake both of them and tell them to just get over themselves. So much time was lost between them due to fear and insecurities and stubbornness. It is so obvious that these two were made for one another, and yet things definitely didn't come easy for them. They each had so much to them though, and it was easy to see that a lot of the time they were in their own head, especially Bristol. The connection between these two was undeniable and stronger than you often see, making them rare and special. But their chemistry is electric and it was a miracle that the tension between them didn't cause my Kindle to catch fire. I just couldn't get enough of them and never wanted their story to end. 

Overall, I loved this book. Kennedy Ryan has a way with words that is truly unique and she always writes such different and interesting characters. This story was such an emotional read, and I was invested right from the start. I highly recommend these books and honestly I can't say enough good things about them. Flow and Grip have been some of my top reads this year and I am so excited to read the next chapter in their story, Still.
