Ellie Pagan has a list of reasons to stay away from Ford Landry.
It’s a mile long and was so much easier to stick to when he was a world away. Now that he’s standing in front of her—body hard and chiseled from a stint in the military, suit cut to perfection, and a smirk she could never resist—remembering all the reasons why just got a whole lot harder.
Ford gets Ellie isn’t his biggest fan. He just doesn’t care.
Standing in front of him, giving him hell, she’s even prettier than he remembered. All he can think about is how she felt in his arms, the taste of her kiss, the sound of her giggle in the middle of the night. He may not know how to win her back, but he does know this: he may have let her go once, but that’s one mistake he won’t make again.
Rating : 4 out of 5 Stars
I wanted to find out about this hype caused by the Landry brothers, and I was not disappointed. Additionally, I love second chance stories, especially if they involve high school sweethearts. Ford Landry and Ellie Pagan’s story was sweet. Adriana Locke has a knack for making you swoon, sigh and even cry at times, with her well-thought-out plot and engaging characters.
Ford Landry is back in his hometown to live close to his family and work with them. The Landry are a close-knit group and always have each other’s back. When he joined the military, Ford not only left his privileged life behind, but also his high school sweetheart, Ellie. They haven’t seen each other for a decade, but his feelings for her are unchanged. He intends to win her over, but he has his work cut out for him! Ellie is feisty, blunt and independent, she holds no punches. She is scared of putting everything on the line for someone who can’t be trusted. Although she is ready to settle down with a family of her own, she is afraid a relationship with Ford remains a pipe dream. Ford is ready to give her breathing room, but also ensures that she gives in to him.
This book grabs you from the very first page, with characters that are believable and easy to love. It’s a light and delightful read that completely makes you sigh for the feel good vibe of Ford and Ellie’s second chance story. They are supported by a cast of secondary characters, who add depth and warmth to the story. I’m definitely intrigued by the Landry siblings and will definitely read more about them!
Thank you for reading!
