Blog Tour and Giveaway: Broken by Kelly Elliott

~ Synopsis ~

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.

Will they both ever learn to trust and love again, or will their pasts come back to haunt them, keeping them both alone and…

4 Star Review

OMG this book was amazing!  I love the Wanted series and couldn't wait to read this book.

Whitley is try to take back control of her life.  She is done being told what to do, what to wear and who she can hang out with.  She just wants to live her life under her terms.  She up and leaves New York.  She swears off all men as they are all the same manipulative assholes.  She decides to go to a small Texas town she remembers her dad's friend talking about.  She never expected to fall for the first cowboy she sees.  She tries fighting her attraction to him, but it is hard when these feelings make her do and say stupid shit.  Can she open up and risk her heart being broken again? Or will she run from happiness?

Layton is a cowboy trying to get over the devastating loss of two people he loved more than anything.  He tries to keep busy with the ranch and hanging out with his friends.  He struggles with his feelings for Whitley a lot.  He wants to hate the city girl because she knows what buttons to push to piss him off.  Also, he doesn't expect her to be so country. Once they finally open up to each other will it be enough? Or will their pasts tear them apart?

Although I really loved this book and would love to give it 5 stars I can't.  It was just way to similar to the Wanted series.  I saw Ellie and Gunner in Whitley and Layton and Reed and Courtney reminded me A LOT of Ari and Jeff.  With that being said I still recommend reading this book.

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!!!
