BOOK REVIEW ~Wanted~ By Kelly Elliott

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 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 realize they are all each other have ever WANTED?

I couldn't put this book down I started it and when life interrupted I would do what ever I had to do to get back to it.  I fell in love with Gunner it was love at first read.  The struggle with Ellie to let Gunner love her was so real I found my self yelling at my kindle several timesKelly did an amazing job with this book her characters were so life like it was hard to leave them in the book !! I wanted to go out get me some girly cowboy boots and hat and go spend the week at Gunners ranch.  Ellie's brother was an amazing big brother in this book her rock during those awful yrs with her abusive mother No matter what he did what he could to help Ellie out.  Several times i did want to reach in to my kindle and bitch slap her mother.  Ari her best friend I loved her!! She reminded me of my best friend  wild and carefree and stubborn.  The back and forth in this book was so real the give and take in a slow hot foreplay that leads up to one great ending.  I loved the fact that wanted's characters all seemed real not fantasy they had real life problems and phobias. I could relate to them they all felt like family I could see my self their in their boots.

This was a true romance pure whole hearted no strings attatched love story From page one to the last page. I will warn you there were times i got mad and wanted to throw my kindle. There were times I was sad but  always there were happy tears in the end!! So make sure you keep a pack of tissues handy and make sure when you do buy this book you buy Saved at the same time because you dont want to wait another day to continue on the story of Ari and Ellie's brother Jeff.  

Here is a Quote from the book one of my favorites!! 

I hope all of you enjoy Wanted as much as i did !!!
