Broken Dreams (Broken, #2)
By Kelly Elliott
Released April 1, 2014
Courtney Will always dreamed of finding her Prince Charming and living happily ever after, like in the fairy tales she read as a child. Her dreams were shattered one fateful night when her prince turned out to be her worst nightmare. Burying herself in her job as an editor, Courtney tried to forget her past, and she lost hope of ever finding true love.
Reed Moore’s past filled his world with guilt and anger, and then a mistake in college deepened these feelings. Fearing he will one day repeat his father’s mistakes with the woman he loves, Reed has vowed to never give his heart to anyone.
Reed and Courtney have each spent years building walls to guard their hearts, so when their feelings for one another explode into something unexpected, they argue and throw hurtful words at each other in hopes of avoiding the truth.
Will Reed end up being the Prince Charming Courtney has dreamed of her entire life? Is Courtney the woman who will help Reed move past the guilt and anger, so he can embrace love?
Can their broken dreams become their happily ever after?
I absolutely LOVED this book!! I was eager to read this after reading Broken so I could finally get Reed & Courtney’s story and I wasn’t disappointed. The romance and hot sex scenes will get your blood boiling. It doesn’t hurt to have fun characters and an awesome story line either.
Reed and Courtney have been in love with each other since they first saw each other in the beginning of Broken. However, fear and misunderstandings kept them apart until they both end up house and dog sitting for Layton and Whitley. The chemistry just builds more and by the time they end up together the collision is epic. These two characters were made for each other. They had me swooning one minute and cracking up the next.
The book flowed really well and I easily read this in a day. I really enjoyed their story and all of the characters in the whole series. The characters were well written and felt like real people. I look forward to more books from Kelly Elliott. Fantastic job and a 5 out of 5 books!
He reached down and brushed his lips against mine, causing me to let out a soft, low moan. I pushed my hand through his hair and grabbed a handful, and he let out a moan of his own. It moved over my body like a warm blanket, and I needed him more than ever before.
“Courtney…” he whispered in such a seductive voice that I trembled. “I need to make love to you…right now.”
I pulled on his hair more, and before I knew what was happening, he picked me up and started walking toward his truck. It took a few seconds for it to sink in that everyone was whooping and hollering. I buried my face into Reed’s shoulders and started giggling.
“Reed, everyone knows why we are leaving.” I peeked over his shoulder and saw Layton and Whitley watching us with the goofiest smiles ever on their faces.
I waved good-bye to Whit, and she threw her head back and started laughing. Layton pulled her to him and whispered something into her ear. If I knew those two, it wouldn’t be long before they left as well.
By the time we got to Reed’s truck, I almost wanted to put my hand down into my panties and ease the intense pressure between my legs. He set me down, grabbed the seat belt, and buckled me in.
I laughed and pushed him away. “I can buckle my own seat belt, cowboy.”
He smiled, and when I felt his hand touch the inside of my thigh, I jumped.
Jesus, the way he makes me feel is unreal.
I looked him up and down. He was dressed in jeans that fit his ass so damn good. The light blue T-shirt he had on made his eyes look stunningly blue.
I could totally lose myself in this man’s eyes.
“Tell me what you want, baby.” He moved his fingertips up and down my thigh oh-so lightly.
I closed my eyes and pushed his hand up to ease my need. “I want you to make love to me—now.”
When I opened my eyes, I looked into his, and they were on fire.
“I can get us to my place in ten minutes,” he whispered as he looked down at my lips.
I purposely licked them and sucked my bottom lip in between my teeth. He let out a moan before he quickly shut my door and ran around the front of his truck.
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!!!
