With each book in the Wanted Series and the books in the Love Wanted in Texas series Kelly Elliott has surprised me because each book got better and better. Loving You was Kelly Elliott's best writing to date. I am in awe of her right now! I adored and cherished Loving You with each word I read. I cried, laughed, broke down, smiled, cringed, sobbed, and loved. It was one of the most powerful reads I have experienced by her so far. I was completely devastated when I heard that this was going to be the last book. I have been a fan of Kelly ever since she first started her journey with her first book Wanted. I have stalked her ever since and each release I would preorder her books. I feel like I have been on this journey with her, but as a reader of course. It has been a powerful ride. I feel like I am rambling on and on but I NEED this review to do Loving You and Kelly Elliott justice. 

Loving You is about Taylor and Jase. Taylor is the last of the girls to find love and this is her book. From the get go Taylor knew who she wanted. She knew the perfect guy except that he didn't want to hurt her. It has been this constant cat and mouse game which we have seen and it has been mentioned in the previous Love Wanted in Texas books. Jase is the guy that thinks he is not good enough for Taylor so he doesn't commit, but that doesn't mean he can stop talking and texting her. Jase has never loved or cared for anyone and no one makes him feel the emotions Taylor makes him feel. Can Jase finally accept the truth and admit to himself that he is in fact good enough for Taylor? 

Oh, Taylor! You are so sweet and adorable. I knew you were a good girl from the start but you have that side to you that goes wild with Jase! I love it. Taylor is fierce when she needs to be and I love her for it. She has been pushed by her dad to do the things that please him but I am glad extremely glad she takes her life back into her own hands. I was incredibly happy with her in this book. I felt her emotions and went along for the ride with her! Jase made us both swoon.

Jase, had me wanting to punch him quite a few times in the beginning. I didn't understand his view of things! But when I wasn't mad, I was completely swooning for him. I adored him and I couldn't handle his sweetness sometimes. He was a complete gentlemen. I don't even know what else to say! He won me over. And what is even better is that he is Layton's son! I LOVE you Kelly Elliott for joining these series together. When I found out about this I was incredibly happy. I don't think there was a better way for you to end this series. You did AMAZING.

Loving you was everything and more than I thought it would be.  Everything I needed was included in Loving You. I didn't know how much I needed the conclusion to this beautiful series. It makes me incredibly sad that I won't get more of these characters but I have never felt more complete! It was such a beautiful ending. Kelly Elliott nailed it! I literally dived into this story more than a week ago and I am still all emotional. Naturally I waited until the last minute because I couldn't express my feelings right away! I had to much too say but obviously I am still no better. I just LOVE all books by Kelly Elliott and really, you need to READ them NOW. I promise you will fall in love with the characters as much as I have. 

Her hand moved lightly across my back as she softly repeated the one thing no one had told me I could do.
“Taylor, let it out. Just cry and let it out.”
My emotions were beginning to mix together. I wasn’t sure if I was angry or sad. My throat and my chest ached. Looking at her, I shook my head. “He promised me, Libby. He promised me!” I shouted.
Standing, I began to pace across the room. “He was my everything and he’s gone. How am I supposed to go on? I can’t go on! Damn it, I don’t want to go on without him.” Tears began to stream down my face as Libby wiped hers away. “He’s gone and I feel so lost.” A sob escaped from my lips as Libby stood up. Holding my hand up to stop her, I shook my head. “I don’t know who to be angry with! If one more person tells me everything will be fine, I’m going to punch them!”
“Grace. We can use Grace for that,” Libby said.
My eyes widened in surprise as I let Libby’s words sink in. “I think Meagan would be the better choice. She used to steal my make-up all the time.”
Libby cracked a small grin. “It’s okay to be angry.”
My lips trembled. “I don’t know what I am, Lib. All I know is I feel so lost without him.”
Libby took me in her arms as we sank back to the bed.
I wasn’t sure how long Libby had stayed in Jase’s room with me. We sat on his bed in silence as I stared out into the darkness.

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.
