There were two things Emmit Lewis loved.
Racing cars and Adaline Morgan.
Time was stolen from the two young lovers and Emmit vowed never again would he allow anything to come between the two of them.
Blurred lines both on and off the track have Emmit being tested beyond his limits. Will he reach the checkered flag and ignite Adaline’s heart, or will he be black-flagged and lose everything he has ever dreamed of?
Adaline Morgan and Emmit Lewis have been in love forever and will together forever. Emmit is the up and coming NASCAR racer and he knows two things for sure – he will be the best driver possible and Adaline will be by his side while he does it.
Adaline knows that she loves Emmit – there is no question about that – but she also knows that she cannot give up her own dreams to follow Emmit as he follows his. Hearts are broken but life has to go on.
3 years later Adaline has graduated from nursing school and Emmit is in the top of the pack for NASCAR. Adaline returns home and to the track with her family. Emmit is absolutely blind sided by Adaline’s return and the shock is palpable.
“I was back in Texas, and those old feelings bubbled up. Anytime that happened, I usually found the closest girl and tried to push the memories away with a quick f**k.”
Tempers are high and words are said. Feelings are hurt. Adaline is hurt by how Emmit has dealt with his feelings over the last 3 years. Emmit is still hurt that Adaline left in the first place.
Adaline won’t give up and when an opportunity presents itself to be on the race circuit full time doing what she had dreamed of doing, she knows that she is on the right path to getting the love of her life back.
“The rush I’ve always longed for and got from racing, is nothing compared to the rush I get when we make love. Or when you tell me you love me. You. Are. My. Life.”
What happens when Emmit’s playboy past comes back to haunt them? Can Addie & Emmit leave the past in the past in order to have their happily ever after?
I LOVED this book! I loved watching these two work through everything together and separately. The one thing with Kelly Elliott books is that you can always feel the love. I can’t wait for the next book!
Opening the door, I smiled. Adaline was standing there with an umbrella over her head as the rain came down steadily. “Hey. I had to ask which one was your bus. You’ve gotten a different one.”
My smile faded some as I nodded. “Yeah, well a lot of things are different now.”
Adaline’s face fell as she asked, “May I come in?”
“Um, yeah but Robert’s here and—”
Robert pushed past me and waved to Adaline. “Hey, Adaline! Great seeing you again. I’m headed back to the hauler, Emmit. See ya later.”
Slowly shaking my head, I shot daggers at my so-called best friend.
Lola barked and Adaline let out a gasp. “Oh, my gosh. There’s a dog!”
“Always were observant, Adaline.”
Adaline shot me a dirty look as she slowly nodded. “Well anyway, I’m sorry Robert ran off. I’ll let him know he can come back.”
Adaline turned and walked off as I squeezed my eyes shut and cursed under my breath. “Fuck!” I hissed through my teeth. Stepping out into the rain, I called for her. “Adaline, wait. I’m sorry, if you want to come in, you’re more than welcome to.”
Turning around slowly, Adaline raised an eyebrow. “Anyone else in there?”
I didn’t even care I was getting wet. “Like who?” I asked with a confused look.
With a shrug, Adaline walked back over to me and started up the steps as I stepped back in and told Lola to sit. Adaline stepped into my bus and looked around as her eyes widened in surprise as she glanced back toward the bedroom. “Oh, I don’t know, Cookie maybe?”
Holy living hell. Adaline was jealous.
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.
