Review: Feels Like Home (Southern Bride #5) by Kelly Elliott

Anson Meyer is world-renowned for his record-breaking country songs, his devilishly good looks, and his really short temper. So after a heated altercation with a reporter, one that puts him in a pretty negative light in the music industry, Anson is temporarily kicked out of Nashville by his agent and sent back to his hometown of Comfort, Texas, to “cool down” and “figure out where he sees his career going.”

When Anson shows up in Comfort, though, he quickly realizes that not everyone is ready to welcome home the bad boy of country music. Especially the woman he is still in love with who served as the inspiration behind all those hit songs. Brystol makes it clear to Anson with one good hit to his nose that she is the last person in town who is happy he is back — and, surprise, she isn’t the only person not holding up a welcome home sign. There are countless others…and he soon realizes that he has got some fence-mending to do all on his own.

What Anson wasn’t expecting to find was a sense of peace and belonging that he hadn’t felt in a very long time. He also stumbled upon the best parts of his past life that he hadn’t realized he missed when he left to pursue his dreams of becoming a singer. And, more importantly, the love he had for Brystol Overmann that burned even brighter than ever before.

Anson soon finds himself needing to make one of the biggest, life-changing decisions of his entire career.

“A woman needs to know she’s worth the fight.”

Feels Like Home is the 5th book in the Southern Bride Series and it follows the story of Brystol & Anson. Bristol and Anson were the dream couple. They were so in love and thought nothing could ever shake them. If only these two had any idea just how their love was going to be tested. Brystol and Anson both had big dreams, but somewhere along the way, their dreams didn’t line up. A last-minute decision will turn Brystol and Anson’s entire world upside down. Years later, Brystol and Anson have done their best to move and make their dreams come true. And when fate decides to reunite these two former lovers, only time will tell if the past can be forgiven and if home is truly where the heart is….

Kelly Elliott is quickly becoming my go-to when it comes to small-town romances and southern charm. No one writes second chance romances quite the way she does. Readers will fall positively in love with Feels Like Home.

Feels Like Home sucks you in from the very first page. I swooned hard over Brystol and Anson’s relationship and was heartbroken when they drifted apart. Brystol is the kind of girl that you can’t help but connect with. She loves big, and loves hard. She wears her heart on her shoulder, yet knows how to hold a grudge. And Anson….Well, Anson isn’t perfect. He did some pretty dumb things but never forgot about the one who got away. He would do anything to right all the wrongs of the past. He just needs a moment, one chance to make up for his wrongs…

Together Anson and Brystol steamed up the pages. While their hearts might have been broken, their chemistry was never too far behind. Both of them had so much growing to do, but if they could learn to be honest, own up to their mistakes, they could have a second chance on something truly wonderful. And that is why I found myself rooting for their happily ever after. I saw something in these two that was worth fighting for and I couldn’t wait to see if they would find their way back to one another.

Feels Like Home is a heartwarming second chance romance that will give you all the feels and will keep you coming back for more. This book has the right balance of heart and soul, drama and romance and all the small town feels. I loved every second of this story from beginning to end and had the best time falling in love with Brystol and Anson. Kelly Elliott is the queen of southern charm and romance and I’m excited to see what romance she’s got up her sleeves for readers next!
