What happens when your head and heart contradict each other regarding the one person you’ve always wanted?

Growing up, Luke Johnson and Libby Hayes thought they would be best friends forever.

One kiss changed everything.

Fearing his love for Libby could cost him their friendship, Luke chooses to listen to his head—instead of his heart.

Will the regrets of denying the one person Luke wants to give himself to, end up leaving him lost and alone? Or will Libby be able to save him with her love?

Saving You is book 2 in the Love Wanted In Texas Series.


Yet Again the words of a southern charmer and a sweet country girl voice an undying connection that I love in every single Kelly Elliott book. Saving You is Book 2 in the Love Wanted in Texas series, a spin-off of the successful Wanted Series and the book focuses on Libby and Luke; the next generation from the Wanted series. As we breathe in the next generation of Kelly’s characters all grown up and ready to find love, the sexy and heart-warming narrative shows deep love from childhood can’t be broken; even through time and other relationships.

I’m flawed and amazed at how Kelly can always make me step into a world where I read non-stop until the very end. The characters Kelly creates are flawed but they are REAL, in every chapter of Saving You, there is something we see as we can relate to. This is a standalone in the series but I definitely recommend going back to the very beginning and reading the Wanted series or picking you Without You (Will & Alex’s story) because without a shadow of doubt this is a series you will get wrapped in and fall for the characters.

“Love has a way of melting our defences, Luke. You just have to know when to let those defences fall.”

Libby and Luke have know each other from the very beginning, connected by the friendship of their parents they become each others person; best friend, partner in crime, partner, and as years go by the soul of the country bind the two together, with a tangent connection that is never left. The love that these characters have demonstrated such a strong building of character and narrative, it was never about whether they love each other, it was about was about their love and connection being strong enough to break any problem and evolve into something magical. I love how Kelly writes narratives, because I never feel like I have to wait to long for the chemistry to be shooting fireworks and whether it be fights; the passion, the friendship Luke and Libby showed a love that is important can withstand anything.

“The kiss was passionate- filled with love, as we kissed each other like we hadn’t seen each other in days. I pulled back some and whispered against her lips. “I loved you the, Libby. “ Closing her eyes she barely spoke, “Never stop loving me, Luke.”

The strength and love between Luke and Libby was as pure and raw as the penny that sits in your wallet, it paved a country imprint into my heart, that was tender and tethered with power and heart. There were moments of anguish and moments of tears when I read Saving You but the moments connecting heart to heart, family to friends and tying a bond like shoes powered a breathtaking novel. When I got to the end; it felt like I had experience a love that was binding and so raw and sexy that nothing could stop it. Libby and Luke were fireworks to the sky, tim tams to this Australian blogger; perfection and a novel that will forever be in my heart with strength and love.









Kelly Elliott is married to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a knack for making her laugh almost daily and supports her crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason…he claims it’s because he loves her!

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.
