I write about love, but I’ve never experienced it. Sure, I’ve been with guys that I cared about. Even thought I found ‘the one’. He turned out to be the frog and not th prince.
A few Frank Sinatra songs and a wildly handsome cowboy who calls me Darlin’, will have me second guessing everything I ever thought I knew about love.
Does happily ever after really exist…or is it only something I write about in books?
Love Profound is book two in the Cowboys and Angels series.

I am hooked. It is official. Kelly Elliott has completely beguiled me. I am really starting to become a fan of her writing style, that is for sure.
Jumping right in, I will admit that I am so happy that I decided to read the first three books prior to reading Love Again. I say this because Love Profound picks up right where Lost Love left off. There are so many hints and breadcrumbs lying around for what is next to come with each Parker sibling and their book. For this go we are finding out what the youngest sibling (and the baby sister… alpha males come hither) Amelia, she is a writer, she has spunk and honestly she seems interesting.
Amelia in so many ways annoyed me yet I liked her. I am the baby in the family, so I found myself really being able to relate to her attitude at times, others I had a hard time relating to her personality. She is naive, childish, and at many occasions really spoiled, she definitely lets it show on more than one occasion. I liked her though because she was a fun yet reasonable character. At the beginning she is just looking for a bit of fun, in New York visiting her sister, Waylynn while also meeting the voice actor for her novel transitioning into audiobook. She meets a guy and they hit it off sexually. She is really just exploring her options and just starting her life – so I found I could get over her spoiled antics for the most part.
Surprisingly enough though this novel went the route I had hoped; Wade. Oh my loins, be still my speckled heart. Wade was absolutely adorable, and he is a college friend of Trevor Parker who just offered a job to work on the Parker Ranch. He is emotionally guarded, absolute southern gent, panty dropping delicious of a man. I really enjoyed his personality, and how he was with Chloe! Oh sweet baby Jesus there went my ovaries.
The chemistry between Wade and Amelia was absolutely adorable. I really enjoyed their connection. From their first initial meeting, which was awkward to the moment they really started having a type of friendship, it was sweet. And their sexual attraction literally scorched off the pages….
The supporting characters honestly make everything even better. I absolutely ADORE Chloe, she is the most obnoxiously adorable child ever, she is hilarious. Then with the mixture of the family, the brothers ‘defending’ Amelia’s honor, the parents. Honestly I love this series more just because of the set up of the family and the atmosphere.
I will say that my only issue, and it was more apparent with Love Profound, is that towards the ending there was a bit of a rush in the plot. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I liked how everything boiled over, the ending was perfection – it was however the mush from about eighty to ninety percent to get there was rather rushed for my tastes. I would have really liked more build, the novel itself has so much build leading from the relationships, the drama development, to the swoon worthy moments that once it hits this point, all building takes a back seat to get to the ending. So for me, that is where/why I could not bring myself to higher the rating; I loved it, but this really stuck with me.
Overall though I admit I still love this series thus so far. It is an amazing group of characters that each have flaws that make the story so much fun, it is entertaining to say the least. I am definitely excited to continue reading! Here I come Tempting Love…
