Fishing for the Truth
News on the docks is Sutton Bradley may be adding new stock to her little boutique store, Coastal Chic, on the square. Now, I can neither confirm nor deny that it is sexy lingerie, but seeing as Ms. Bradley has been seen on more than one occasion in the company of Brody Wilson, who, let me remind you, was voted as the catch of the season. One can only come to a certain conclusion and that is…
Love is in the air.
I, for one, would love to see Sutton move on from that terrible first marriage of hers, and in my humble opinion, Mr. Brody Wilson would do a fine job of making her forget all about…what's his name.
Next on my list of to do's for today…stop by Coastal Chic! Stay tuned for more on Lingerie Gate!
Fair winds and following seas!
So excited for Sutton and Brody’s story!
So excited for Sutton and Brody’s story! After getting the vibes between them from the previous book, I was so excited to see what happens between them. Sutton and Brody have been attracted to each other since their teen years, but between the age difference and Brody’s job, nothing would happen between them except sharing one night that would change Sutton’s life forever because of Brody’s rejection. Years later, Sutton is going through a divorce and her ex-husband is making things extremely difficult for her. Brody returns to town and helps her with everything he can while trying to make up for everything. When her ex-husband returns to town and finds out they’ve been spending so much time together, he makes Sutton’s life difficult and gives very much creeper/stalker vibes, but thankfully Brody uses his connections to find out what’s really going on with him and it blows everything up (including the reader’s minds)! I loved this book (per usual with all of Kelly’s books) and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
A second chance for Sutton and Brody
Sutton and Brody finally get their second chance! Their story was set up in book one of the Seaside Chronicles series, which I highly recommend reading first as readers get background into the Bradley and Wilson families and their history.
After breaking Sutton's heart when they were young, Brody comes back in their little port town after leaving the navy. But Sutton has tried very hard to ignore him, as her feelings have never gone away, despite a disastrous marriage. When Sutton needs help, Brody is more than willing to step in and help the woman he regrets letting get way.
Sutton is such a spitfire. She fights those feelings for Brody at every turn, as well as his help. But he's not taking no for an answer. Those protective instincts come in handy when Sutton's ex decides to make trouble. And who could resist falling for the hero...even if you didn't think you actually needed one.
This is my third series by Kelly Elliot and I am always blown away by her storytelling. I love the strong female characters that she writes and the men who love and support them. It's hard being patient for the next story to come out, but I've already added it to my calendar so I'll be ready to read it as soon as it's released. Let's see if this new couple can replace Sutton and Brody in my heart.
Ohh this series is getting so good! Part of Me is a second chance romance that will have capture your attention from the very first page. You will go through all the emotions while reading Sutton and Brody’s story. A little white lie….a boy scared of his feelings…..settling down with the wrong person….getting that second chance to make things right. That pesky gossip column is at it again. This story is jam packed! This is a continuous story line so please read Returning Home first.
Kelly Elliott knows how to make our hearts happy with this small town series. Kelly is an automatic one-click author for me. Highly recommended.
