RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Still the One by Carrie Elks




#StillTheOne #CarrieElks #LIVENOW #Contemporary Romance #BareNakedWords 


Ten years ago he broke her heart. Now he’s determined to win her back.

Nobody expects to meet the love of their life on their first day at school, but from the moment Tanner Hartson set his eyes on Savannah Butler, she stole his breath away.

She was beautiful, wild and free. And though her life was hard, she made everything feel easy.

As they grew up, they were best friends.

Then sweethearts.

And finally lovers.

Until he broke her heart in the worst way.

They haven’t spoken for the last ten years. But now she’s returned to their small home town and he can’t fight the intense attraction that keeps pulling them together.

He wants her back. And this time he won’t take no for an answer.

Doesn’t true love deserve a second chance?

*Still The One is the second book in the Heartbreak Brothers series of emotional standalone romances, set in the small town of Hartson’s Creek. Find out why readers are falling in love with these handsome and brooding brothers!*

This was my first time reading Carrie Elks, and I had high hopes for this story based on the blurb; however, what I got left me so incredibly frustrated and ready to throw my e-reader I had to step back from reading for a couple of days to calm down.

When I say that Tanner Harston had me absolutely livid throughout this book, I don't think I can emphasize that enough. LIVID I tell you. I get being scared of rejection; I'm sure there's quite a few people in the world who don't want to be rejected, but do treat the one person who means the most to you because you're too much of a punkass to be honest like she's nothing more than dog poop on the bottom of your shoe is whole new level of WTFery. With a hefty side dish of throat punching. If she was "the love of his life" he should have known why she couldn't go to Duke with him, and then to say the things he said and did when she shows up? So grossly unforgivable. And then to act like it's all her fault after she learns the truth about her father? Ugh, I can't even with him.

Van isn't entirely faultless either, but the miscommunications between these two was enough to make my head feel like it wanted to pop right off my neck.

Carrie Elks writes contemporary romance with a sizzling edge. Her first book, Fix You, has been translated into eight languages and made a surprise appearance on Big Brother in Brazil. Luckily for her, it wasn’t voted out. Carrie lives with her husband, two lovely children and a larger-than-life black pug called Plato. When she isn’t writing or reading, she can be found baking, drinking an occasional (!) glass of wine, or chatting on social media.
