Moving back home to my parents’ cattle ranch in Texas was the last thing I thought I’d be doing.
But, here I stand … in front of my high school girlfriend. A beautiful, confident woman has replaced the young girl I once knew and loved. Hell. I’m still in love with her.
Yep. Paxton Monroe was my first love and the one girl in town who now hated my guts. So much so, Paxton swore her revenge on me if it took her until the day she died. The last words she spoke to me were a vow to cut my dick off and shove it down my throat.
The fight between my heart, my head, and last, but certainly not least, my dick starts tonight. Because all I can think about is how I want to be buried so deep inside Paxton she won’t remember how I broke her heart, or how I left her when she needed me the most.
But who will win? My heart is too broken to listen to my head. And my dick, yeah it’s not listening to anything or anyone. Not until it gets what it wants and what it wants is Paxton Monroe.
Lost Love is book one in the Cowboys and Angels Series

My Review –
4 To Find Our Way Back Stars!!
*I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from InkSlinger PR*
Thanks you so very much InkSlinger PR!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 🙂
This was my first time reading Ms.Elliott’s work. I know, I know you probably think I’ve been living under a rock since I haven’t yet but I was so glad that this was my first book of hers that I’ve read. I really liked it!! It showed that pain from others can cut deep and last for years. It also showed that in order to live you must move on from the past as well. This story drove me crazy in the best way. Whenever a character can make me feel anything even if it makes me want to jump into my kindle I love it!!
Lost Love is about Paxton Malone and Steed Parker. These two were brought together by love but harsh words spoken lead to heartbreak setting in. When they see each other again years later by chance it’s hard to deny the feelings they’ve buried so deep. Can they let go of the past and have a future? Or is the damage already done?
For the first half of this book I couldn’t stand Steed for everything that went on. The more I kept reading and seeing his truths I couldn’t help but adore him. Paxton wouldn’t back down from anything and her kindness shown towards kids warmed my soul. I really enjoyed the bonds between the main characters and their families.
Ms.Elliott touched on tough subjects that shattered my heart at times. I was happy she brought a brightness to every situation in the story throughout the highs and the lows. She kept me on the edge of my seat that is for for sure! I am so looking forward to reading Love Profound!! 🙂
If you haven’t already One-Clicked, Whatcha waiting for?!?! Check it out today!! In my opinion it’s such a great summer read that’ll leave you daydreaming about Texas and wishing you had your very own cowboy. I hope that you like this story as much as I did my fellow book lovers!! 4 Stars all around!! 🙂
I nearly jumped out of my skin as I spun around and clutched at my chest.
“Jesus, Amelia! Why would you sneak up on me like that?”
She tried to hide her smile and failed. Lifting her brows, she glanced past my shoulder. “Were you watching Steed and Chloe?”
My cheeks heated. “What? No! Are they here? I haven’t seen them. Why would you say that?”
When her eyes moved back to mine, I knew she saw right through my blunder of lies. “Uh-huh. I know I was little when you and Steed dated, so we really don’t know each other all that well.” She smiled. “But I can already tell you’re a terrible liar, Paxton.”
I dropped my head then peeked up at her. “I wasn’t spying.”
Amelia held up her hands. “I didn’t say you were.”
Chewing on my lip, I sighed. “Okay. I was spying. I’m lost, Amelia.”
With a soft sympathetic grin, she glanced at her brother. “So is he, Paxton. His eyes are so sad. Earlier this morning we all had breakfast together as a family and both Mom and I noticed it.”
“The family was all together?” I asked.
She nodded with a grin. “The boys have been working the ranch the last two days so they’re all staying at the house. It’s been nice having Steed home again. Dad’s thrilled he’s back and digging deeper into the business side of the ranch. The idea of having another son run day-to-day operations has him all kinds of happy.”
Guilt hit me square in the chest. It was my fault he left. I told him to leave.
He left his family and stayed away because of me.
“I’m so sorry he left town,” I said.
“Paxton, you didn’t keep him away all those years. That was his decision. A poor one, but his nonetheless.”
I shrugged. Turning, I glanced back at Steed and Chloe. “He’s such a good father.”
The sadness in my voice caused Amelia to put her hand on my shoulder and gave it a squeeze.
