REVIEW & EXCERPT BLITZ - Lost Love (Cowboys & Angels #1) by Kelly Elliott

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

This is such a sweet second chance at love story! Paxton and Steed have the kind of love that stands the test of time, and regardless of how much time has passed, that love is still alive and even more fierce than it was before. But Steed has a LOT of making up to do in order to get back into Paxton's good graces. And there's even more on the line now that Steed's back in Texas.

I gotta be honest, I empathized with Paxton and her feelings, especially once she learned Steed was back in town to stay, and everything he brought back with him. One thing I appreciated with this story was that the issues from their past wasn't dragged out throughout the story; Steed and Paxton cleared the air about what happened 10 years prior and how it affected both of their lives up until the present. And they did it in a mature way, which gives the book a bit more authenticity.

“Whatcha doing?” 
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.
