If Grace Johnson knew one thing at all, it was that all men were dirtbags. 

All men … except Noah Bennet.

“I was lost in his eyes. Lost in his tears. My goal was to pull him out of the darkness … even if it dragged me in as well.” 

If Noah Bennet knew one thing at all, it was he needed Grace Johnson. 

Needed her … desperately.

“My pain was pulling me under … she was my only saving grace.” 

Grace is willing to put everything on the line to help bring back the man she is hopelessly in love with. Even if it costs her the future she’s been longing for. 

“If finding you means losing a part of me … I’ll do it.”

Finding You is yet another sweet romance written by Kelly Elliott. I adore her books and continuing the stories of her characters with their kids in another series is just mind-blowing for fans like me.

In this new Love Wanted In Texas story, we get to read about Jeff and Ari's daughter, Grace who reminded me a lot of Ari when she answered with a smart mouth and a bit insecure when it came to talking about her feelings, just like her dad. She falls in love with Noah Bennett, a good guy with family problems that end up consuming him and putting his relationship with Grace.

What I liked about this story is that Kelly Elliott changes her pattern a bit, something I complained about in my review for Holding You. This time around we see real struggle and something new and different from her previous Love Wanted In Texas stories. I applaud the plot and the idea of dealing with such difficult topics as the loss of a love one, the dangers of auto-medication and addiction and  and treachery from a loved one. I know this author has a lot of potential and has the ability of making us readers swoon over her cowboy characters, so I was glad to see new things happening in Finding You.

Despite that, at first I was a bit bummed because I thought it would follow the pattern of the other books. I felt like Grace thinking that Noah was married was a bit forced to have a reason to create conflict between the characters and have them separated. And, even though we have read about this in the previous books, it was solved so quickly that it was as if was not important for the story. However, the story changed quickly and gained my full interest and proved to me that it was a beautiful story and that the characters didn't have it easy to find their well-deserved happy ending.

Like I said, I'm glad to see a change in the series and I am dying to see what's going to come next. I consider Kelly Elliott one of my favorite authors and I can't wait to read her next book. I'm crossing fingers to see if it's Meg's story and hope we have a new Love Wanted In Texas story full of surprises.

**I received this book in exchange of an honest review. Participating in this blog tour does not change my point of view. I want to thank Insklinger PR and Kelly Elliott for allowing me to read this book.

by Kelly Elliott

Kelly is married to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a knack for making her laugh almost daily and supports her crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason...he claims it's because he loves her!

She’s also a mom to an amazing daughter who is constantly asking for something to eat while her fingers move like mad on her cell phone sending out what is sure to be another very important text message.

In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write.

One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus....her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever. When Kelly is not outside helping the hubby haul brush, move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for her that day, you’ll find her inside reading, writing or watching HGTV.
