Layton Morris and his brother Mike grew up not knowing what it would be like to live in a normal home. With no running water or electricity in their home, no parents around to protect them, they quickly learned how to survive and depend only on each other.
When a tragic accident takes Mike away from Layton, and the only other person that he ever let into his heart walked away from him, leaving his heart shattered, Layton focuses all of his time and energy into the ranch he and his brother dreamed of. He makes a vow to himself to never let love in again. The last thing Layton needed or wanted was more heartache.
Whitley Reynolds grew up in a privileged home in upstate New York. When she landed the star football player in high school no one was surprised, not even Whitley. She dreamed of a life with Roger living in New York City and happily followed him there.
The first time Roger hit her for arguing with him about a dinner party, she forgave him. The more it happened, the further Whitley withdrew from her friends and family. One fateful day things go to far. Whitley makes a promise to herself and finds the courage to do the one thing she thought she’d never be able to do.
Fleeing with her best friend Courtney, Whitley was determined to put her past behind her and start a new life in the small town of Llano, Texas, where no one would ever find out about her past.

Some books take you by surprise and just sneak up into your system and never lets go. Then there are some books that you feel like the author hit you over the head with a rock by the way. The. Words wrap around your heart and takes control of it. And then there are books like this one that just is a slow boil and before you knew what happened, you love it and can not get it out of your head.
The characters are ones that you can relate to in a real life setting. They are very well defined that the reader would understand what they would due in a situation. There was a part in the book that a character used another name but with the reaction of the situation, you the reader knew whom it was.
This book was written in the two people first point of view. It was from the heroine’s point of view in one chapter and then the hero’s point of view in another chapter. It was a great idea to mix the points of view. It was great that the author only changed the point of view during a chapter change instead of inside the chapter. The writing style was colorful with some wittiness thrown in when need to lighten the mood.
There were not unexpected twists or turns that was found in the book. The book did go an attach me to the seat to find out what will happen next. It kept me reading even though I knew what would happen next. The words got me to stay reading. They were well designed and put together to get the reader moving into the words to wrap around the reader to hold on tight to the book and never let go until the end.
Who is Kelly Elliott?
Really I’m just a wife to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a nack for making me laugh almost daily and supports my crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason…he claims it’s because he loves me…..so I’ll just go with that one!
I’m also a mom to an amazing daughter who constantly is asking me to make her something to eat while she has her fingers moving like mad on her cell phone sending out what I’m sure is another very important text message!
Oh…and I like to sit down and write in my spare time!
I live in the Texas hill country and one of my favorite things to do is go for hikes around our property with my second favorite man, Gus….my chocolate lab and my sweet girl Rose, our golden retriever. When I’m not outside helping the hubby haul brush or move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for me that day, you will find me inside reading, writing or watching HGTV and soaking in a nice hot bubble bath…..yeah that last one I just made up but it sure does sound nice!!!
