Love at first sight.
That’s what it was when Rip Myers came up to me in kindergarten. From that point on, we were inseparable best friends.
When I work up the courage to tell Rip I love him, I am met with rejection. He tells me he treasures our friendship too much. That statement might as well be a knife to my heart.
I want to hold out hope that he’ll change his mind.
Instead, he moves on.
The only choice I have is to pretend that doesn’t slay me.
So, I say yes…to the man I love. But he isn’t the man I’ve been in love with nearly my entire life.
“Sometimes you have to cut the strings to make room for what truly belongs to your heart.”
“Every time you looked into my eyes, I felt it deep within my soul.”
Love At First Sight is the first book in an exciting new series from author Kelly Elliott that delivers all the feels and will leave you breathless.
Love At First Sight follows the story of Rip and Chloe. From the moment I picked up this book, I was giddy with excitement. I was instantly hooked and could not wait to see what Chloe’s story would bring to the table. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed at all. As someone who is a total sucker for friends to lovers romances, this one checked off all of my marks and completely exceeded my exceptions.
Chloe and Rip had a friendship that was built to stand the test of time. Over the years, there were so many times where they got close to becoming more, but let fear dictate their actions. Everyone and I mean everyone, knew these two belonged together and I couldn’t wait for these two to open their eyes and take the leap….
Love At First Sight has the ultimate push and pull. It has those will they/won’t they moments that just leave you breathless. Yes, Rip and Chloe had their frustrating moments…moments where you just wanted to yell at them and make them open their eyes. But, their journey to happily ever after was so worth it. Sure there were a couple bumps in the road along the way, but every romance has its obstacles. And I just loved watching these two try to figure things out…to finally fight for what’s important and never give up.
The love between Chloe and Rip was epic and unforgettable. Their story is exactly what I want from a romance novel. It’s filled with tension and love. It’s light on the drama, yet more than delivers on the angst. The story tugs at your heart and leaves you begging for more. And that just makes the steamy and swoon-worthy moments all that more worth it.
Love At First Sight is a fantastic start to the Southern Bride Series and I for one, can not wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. Kelly Elliott, you have blown me away, and I can’t wait for more!
