Review: Wanted (Wanted #1)

Wanted (Wanted #1) by Kelly Elliott

Published: Kelly Elliott, 2012
503 pages, Paperback (2 edition)
Source: Purchased through Amazon

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Verbally abused by her mother for years, 18 year old Ellie Johnson always believed she would never be loved or wanted by anyone. She focused all of her attention on her grades and getting into the University of Texas to start a new life away from her mother.

The last thing Ellie expected was to fall in love with Gunner Mathews, a starting linebacker for the University of Texas football team and not to mention, her brothers best friend.

Gunner only had two passions in his life, football and his grandfather's ranch, until he falls for his best friends little sister. He will stop at nothing to show Ellie how much he wants her, even if it means he has to move faster than she would like.

Gunner knows they are meant to be together forever, but Ellie keeps denying her feelings out of fear of being hurt again. Every time he gets close to winning her love, something pushes her away again. Will Ellie ever be able to let go of the past and let him into her heart and will Gunner be patient enough to wait for her?

What will it take for them to realise they are all each other have ever wanted?

My Review:
First thing is first Kelly Elliott I give you 2 thumbs up and 5/5 starts for Wanted. This is Kelly's first book and she did an excellent job with the minor mistakes...I thought that the story line was awesome and her characters were well developed. I just loved how Kelly alternated between all characters point of views throughout the story, so we could see exactly how they feel and see things through their eyes. Ellie grew up with a dunk for a mother and was mentally and emotional abused by her mother on a daily basis. Ellie was told bu her own mother that she would never amount to anything and that nobody would want her...

Jefferson, Ellie's older brother is attending the university of Texas and has a best friend named Gunner (what a nickname, My first thoughts were HOT, SEXY MUSCLE man). Jefferson is very protective of his little sister like all big brother should be, but never knew the extent of the verbal abuse their mother was inflicting on Ellie.

Ellie needs to learn at her own pace how to love herself before she can allow someone to love her. Ellie needs to know that she is wanted and open her heart to love. Gunner is a total sweetheart and falls hard for Ellie the moment he laid eyes on her (It was like BOOM instant love at first sight). Gunner will do everything in his power to show Ellie that she is wanted.

My Rating:
