Review: The Butterfly Effect (Boggy Creek Valley #1) by Kelly Elliott

The butterfly effect — one small change, one moment in time that impacts the future.

At twenty-six years old I never dreamed I’d walk in on my husband in bed with my best friend. At twenty-seven years old I found myself divorced, and the mother of a one-year-old son. Never mind I was learning to take the reins of my family’s apple orchard business. There was no way my life could be any more complicated…or so I thought.

Can a woman who’s lost all trust in men help a man who can’t even trust himself?

Aiden O’Hara was my brother’s best friend, and I would be remiss if I said I hadn’t always found him utterly attractive—and the passing of time or circumstances didn’t change that. But when he moves back to Boggy Creek Valley after serving his time as a Navy SEAL, I cannot deny the pull I feel between us.

Aiden is haunted by his own demons—demons that seem bigger than the both of us—and my heart warns me to stay away. I’d been burned already and didn’t need that added complication in my life, or so I thought. But one moment in time changes everything between us, and neither one of us can deny the hidden feelings we share.

Our pasts want to keep us apart…our future will be up to the wings of fate.

The Butterfly Effect is book one in the Boggy Creek Valley series and is a stand-alone novel.

Kelly Elliott pulls out all the stops in her latest release, The Butterfly Effect. The Butterfly Effect is the first book in the Boggy Creek Valley Series and follows the story of Aiden and Willa. Willa has been in love with Aiden for as long as she can remember, but the timing and life always seemed to get in their way. Flash forward to 9 years later, Willa is freshly divorced and Aiden has finally returned home. Things between Aiden and Willa have always been complicated, but this time pull between them is too strong to ignore….

The Butterfly Effect pulled me in from the very first page. I absolutely adored Aiden and Willa. From the moment I met those two, I just knew their story was going to be special and I was not disappointed. Kelly Elliott pulled out all of the stops with Aiden and Willa’s story. It has all the small-town goodness, sexiness, and light drama that we know and love from this author. You could tell that this story was written with a ton of heart and was going to take you on an unforgettable journey. Together, Aiden and Willa were just effortless. Their push and pull left me dying for more and their chemistry we off the charts.

This story does deal with some difficult subject matter and I applaud the author for the way she dealt with it and how she made the reader connect and understand what the characters were going through. Aiden and Willa’s story is the kind of story that you just can’t help but get consumed with and root for the characters to find their way.

In the end, The Butterfly Effect was an unforgettable read that left me swooning and with a huge smile on my face. Kelly Elliott Fans, you are in for one heck of a treat with The Butterfly Effect and I hope you love it just as much as I did. I think the Boggy Creek Valley Series is off to one heck of a start and I can not wait to see what the author has in store for us readers next.
