Review & Release Blitz ~ LOST LOVE by Kelly Elliott
Review by Lana
This is my first Kelly Elliott book and boy what have I been missing.
Being a Texas girl myself, I was super excited to read the first page and it talked about the Texas hill country and the Frio River. Many memories hit me as soon as I started reading like first loves, Texas sunsets, the freezing Frio river while tubing and country boys.
Super-hot daddy Steed Parker knows his way around a ranch when he decides to come back to Texas to hopefully get the girl backthat he has loved his whole life.
Paxton Monroe has never forgotten her first and only love Steed but is having trouble letting go of the anger and hurt from ten years ago.
A chance encounter has both Steed and Paxton coming face to face with each other and must decide how they want to handle all the unanswered questions, hurt and anger.
Will Love conquer all or will it get lost? This is a must read and I can’t wait for the other books to see what happens to everyone else.- Lana WHR
I nearly jumped out of my skin as I spun around and clutched at my chest.
“Jesus, Amelia! Why would you sneak up on me like that?”
She tried to hide her smile and failed. Lifting her brows, she glanced past my shoulder. “Were you watching Steed and Chloe?”
My cheeks heated. “What? No! Are they here? I haven’t seen them. Why would you say that?”
When her eyes moved back to mine, I knew she saw right through my blunder of lies. “Uh-huh. I know I was little when you and Steed dated, so we really don’t know each other all that well.” She smiled. “But I can already tell you’re a terrible liar, Paxton.”
I dropped my head then peeked up at her. “I wasn’t spying.”
Amelia held up her hands. “I didn’t say you were.”
Chewing on my lip, I sighed. “Okay. I was spying. I’m lost, Amelia.”
With a soft sympathetic grin, she glanced at her brother. “So is he, Paxton. His eyes are so sad. Earlier this morning we all had breakfast together as a family and both Mom and I noticed it.”
“The family was all together?” I asked.
She nodded with a grin. “The boys have been working the ranch the last two days so they’re all staying at the house. It’s been nice having Steed home again. Dad’s thrilled he’s back and digging deeper into the business side of the ranch. The idea of having another son run day-to-day operations has him all kinds of happy.”
Guilt hit me square in the chest. It was my fault he left. I told him to leave.
He left his family and stayed away because of me.
“I’m so sorry he left town,” I said.
“Paxton, you didn’t keep him away all those years. That was his decision. A poor one, but his nonetheless.”
I shrugged. Turning, I glanced back at Steed and Chloe. “He’s such a good father.”
The sadness in my voice caused Amelia to put her hand on my shoulder and gave it a squeeze.
