From New York Times bestselling author Kelly Elliott comes the gut-wrenching story of a love that transcends all odds—and transforms the deepest pain into the brightest hope. Firefighter and first responder Preston Ward thought he had grown immune to the job’s emotional burns. But when he goes out on a particularly tragic call, he realizes that some scenes are too devastating to forget. And yet, if it weren’t for that terrible night, he never would have met the woman who makes him want to risk his heart. More than once, Harmony Banks has watched her perfectly ordered world torn apart by fate. Now she’s finding out that what she lost wasn’t as perfect as she thought—and it’s tearing her apart. The only thing that keeps her going is the kindness of a stranger: the firefighter who saved her life the night everything changed. Preston isn’t like the men who have come before. For one thing, he’s far more genuine. And the love Harmony feels growing between them is almost too intense for her wounded soul. But if she and Preston can push past heartbreak, they’ll find that something incredible awaits in each other’s arms.
Kelly Elliott is one of my favorite authors and Searching For Harmony is a perfect example of why. The book starts out so strong and keeps going until the end. The first few chapters will leave you in tears and shattered as you try and put yourself back together for Harmony. I knew Kelly had an amazing plan for Harmony and you won't be left disappointed.
Harmony is an amazing character. You see how strong she is from page one and throughout the first few chapters; you keep seeing how strong she is. Your heart breaks for her (don't worry, it eventually heals) as you read the huge blow Kelly lays on you at the very beginning. You watch her heal and you watch her fall in love with an amazing man, Preston Ward.
Preston Ward is my new favorite Kelly Elliott man. He is sweet, he is caring, he is a firefighter and he is a sexy man. He is just as affected by Harmony's grief and he has to find a way to heal himself as well. What he wasn't prepared for was he would feel towards Harmony and the journey of their story. He is the perfect boyfriend material. He lets Harmony heal at her own pace and is there when he needs her.
I loved their story but what I loved more was how they came together. Kelly delivered an amazing story until the very last page. I can't wait to read more in this series and from Kelly in the future.
