Moving back home to my parents’ cattle ranch in Texas was the last thing I thought I’d be doing. But, here I stand … in front of my high school girlfriend. A beautiful, confident woman has replaced the young girl I once knew and loved. Hell. I’m still in love with her. Yep. Paxton Monroe was my first love and the one girl in town who now hated my guts. So much so, Paxton swore her revenge on me if it took her until the day she died. The last words she spoke to me were a vow to cut my dick off and shove it down my throat. The fight between my heart, my head, and last, but certainly not least, my dick starts tonight. Because all I can think about is how I want to be buried so deep inside Paxton she won’t remember how I broke her heart, or how I left her when she needed me the most. But who will win? My heart is too broken to listen to my head. And my dick, yeah it’s not listening to anything or anyone. Not until it gets what it wants and what it wants is Paxton Monroe. Lost Love is book one in the Cowboys and Angels Series
“Whatcha doing?” 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.
AMIE'S 4 STAR REVIEW
I always enjoy a second chance romance and of course I have always loved Kelly Elliott so here we get the best of both and topping it off with hot cowboys and swoon-worthy romance !! Ok so it isn't always easy or pretty but I know what I am getting with KE and I appreciate the ease and flow of her writing and as always her covers !!
Steed ran from home 10 years ago - from his family and his girl- it didn't make his life any easier because now 10 years later he is back home begging for forgiveness divorced and a single dad. He may be able to win back the hearts of his family but winning back his girl is a challenge. Paxton suffered a great deal on her own 10 years ago and so seeing Steed in town is like a slap in the face. Reality comes slamming back down and feelings that they thought were hidden or over make themselves known. I hate that Steed went on with life and did things to purposely forget Paxton - which didn't work - yet Paxton kind of just did what she had to to get by. She may have lived but never fully. The sexual tension and chemistry between the two was on fire and I loved every minute we got of that. Their past story was heartbreaking and although it did make Steed look like a total jerk I can get on board with his honesty and how he did man up the next time around when he found himself in a life changing situation. In true KE style we get all the feels and an ending that leaves us wanting more for the series and excited for who and what comes next !!
