BLOG TOUR~ Holding You by Kelly Elliot

Lauren Reynolds wanted only two things in life—to run her father’s horse breeding business and Colt Matthews. Fearing Colt would take her position within the family business, she tried to push him far away from her heart.

When life could no longer keep Lauren and Colt apart, their two worlds became one. Every second of every moment, they spent together. Their love bloomed into something neither of them imagined—a bond so strong Lauren and Colt believed nothing would ever stand in their way.

However, life threw a cruel twist into Colt and Lauren’s planned happily ever after. Will fate let them live out the life they dreamed of, or will one of them be left alone, lost and angry?
“I’ll spend forever holding you … even if it’s only in my memory.”

You want to read a story with one of the most romantic guys I’ve ever seen? Well here it is.
Holding You is the third book in the Love Wanted in Texas series, but I highly recommend reading the first two so you can get the whole backstory with the characters in each book. With all the characters being such close friends, they play an important role in each couples story.
I have loved all of Kelly’s books and how she gives us these romantic, southern men that you can’t help but fall in love with and she pairs them with strong women that make me laugh throughout the book. She truly outdid herself with these two characters though. Colt and Lauren are the cutest couple and they had tons of moments when they had me laughing out loud.
If you’ve read Kelly’s Wanted series and the other books in this series, you know that she likes to add in a LOVELY villain that you just hate and brings some drama to the couples. Well I think since Colt and Lauren have gone through some much in the last two books, Kelly made this book a little less drama filled. Reading it, I thought it might have made the book slower for me but I was surprisingly happy she did it the way she did. Colt and Lauren did go through a lot, mainly in Saving You, so it was nice to see them get a happy ending.
So let’s talk about the characters. Colt Matthews…just WOW. I thought that the most romantic and swoon worthy man was his daddy, Gunner Matthews, but Colt seemed to learn everything from his father and then some. You would expect that Colt would be a jerk since he’s a football player, but this southern boy is the opposite. This is the kind of man I would want to find for my daughter. Colt makes Lauren feel like she’s the only thing in his life. He puts her before him and truly sweeps her off her feet.
“I love you Lauren Reynolds, will you be mine?” If she doesn’t I will!
Lauren Reynolds is such a sweetheart. She was funny, cute, innocent and just a southern bell. I loved her. Although Lauren is all those things, she’s also tough and won’t let anyone push her around. She goes through struggles with her relationship with her father, hey both have different opinions on her running his horse breeding business, but Lauren shows him how responsible and strong she is. I loved that about her.
 Colt and Lauren's relationship was the sweetest and couldn’t get enough of them. Once you start reading their story, you get taken into it and feel like your apart of their lives. You feel the love that Colt and Lauren have for each other and the struggles they encounter throughout the story. Kelly had me laughing with not only Colt and Lauren’s relationship, but with the whole gang. They really are a funny group and I loved having everyone together.
If you’re a Kelly Elliott fan, one-click Holding You. And if you’re a Gunner Matthews fan, like myself, you’ll really want to read about little Matthews and his smooth ways. I think every man should take some lessons from the Matthews boys.


Excerpt one~
Lauren stood before me with the sexiest grin on her face. “That. Was. Fun.”
Laughing, I pulled her into my arms. “Yeah it was. I’ve never done anything like that before.”
Gazing into my eyes, Lauren seemed sedated. Her eyes sparkled and I imagined taking her again on the table and just burying my dick deep inside her as I slowly made love to her.
Lauren’s eyes filled with love as she spoke softly. “I’ve never done anything like that before either. We have lots of firsts together.”
Rubbing her nose with mine, I whispered, “Yes we do. I have a lot more firsts planned for us, Lauren.”
Burying her face in my chest, she said in a muffled voice, “I can’t wait.”

She’s also a mom to an amazing daughter who is constantly asking for something to eat while her fingers move like mad on her cell phone sending out what is sure to be another very important text message.
In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write.
One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus....her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever. When Kelly is not outside helping the hubby haul brush, move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for her that day, you’ll find her inside reading, writing or watching HGTV.
