Review by Lisa Kane

Taylor Atwood has had her eye on Jase Morris for a long time. During a school trip to Paris, she thought they finally might have a chance at being more than friends. But after one night together, Jase thought it was best to let Taylor go. Wrong! That's right up there with telling someone you love them and then taking it back. 

"I look at you and all I can think of is if you married me you'd be stuck in Llano being a rancher's wife and that's not what you deserve."

Taylor has seen girls come and go for Jase and knows she has to move on. So she tries. She really does try but sometimes someone is so engrained in your heart that neither time nor space can erase them. Jase may have come to some realizations too and fate plays a hand for them.

But don't think this is all smooth sailing. There's a storm a brewing and life is going to get real difficult and taste them both physically and mentally.

"I'm sorry, Taylor. I'm so sorry."
It's a dream. That's all this was.
A horrible, awful nightmare.

There are dark days ahead and hope is all Taylor has to hold onto. But she has her faith and her friends and family and she finds the strength she needs to keep believing. I have to say there were parts of this story that made my eyes wet. 

I felt like I could breathe without it hurting my heart. 

Loving You is a sweet, slightly angst read. Don't worry, there's lots of catching up with all your favorite characters from past stories. Time hasn't stood still and I love reading about how all their lives have changed and they are making their own families and memories now. 

"It wasn't fate that brought us back together today."
"It wasn't?"
"No, it was destiny."


Kelly Elliott 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.

Her hand moved lightly across my back as she softly repeated the one thing no one had told me I could do.
“Taylor, let it out. Just cry and let it out.”
My emotions were beginning to mix together. I wasn’t sure if I was angry or sad. My throat and my chest ached. Looking at her, I shook my head. “He promised me, Libby. He promised me!” I shouted.
Standing, I began to pace across the room. “He was my everything and he’s gone. How am I supposed to go on? I can’t go on! Damn it, I don’t want to go on without him.” Tears began to stream down my face as Libby wiped hers away. “He’s gone and I feel so lost.” A sob escaped from my lips as Libby stood up. Holding my hand up to stop her, I shook my head. “I don’t know who to be angry with! If one more person tells me everything will be fine, I’m going to punch them!”
“Grace. We can use Grace for that,” Libby said.
My eyes widened in surprise as I let Libby’s words sink in. “I think Meagan would be the better choice. She used to steal my make-up all the time.”
Libby cracked a small grin. “It’s okay to be angry.”
My lips trembled. “I don’t know what I am, Lib. All I know is I feel so lost without him.”
Libby took me in her arms as we sank back to the bed.
I wasn’t sure how long Libby had stayed in Jase’s room with me. We sat on his bed in silence as I stared out into the darkness.
