Summary

Love at first sight. 

That’s what it was when Rip Myers came up to me in kindergarten. From that point on, we were inseparable best friends.  

When I work up the courage to tell Rip I love him, I am met with rejection. He tells me he treasures our friendship too much. That statement might as well be a knife to my heart.  

I want to hold out hope that he’ll change his mind.  

Instead, he moves on.  

The only choice I have is to pretend that doesn’t slay me.  

So, I say yes...to the man I love. But he isn’t the man I’ve been in love with nearly my entire life.  

Love at First Sight is a stand alone novel.

Felt like screaming just get on with it will you. Didn’t enjoy at all. Gave up halfway through. Usually love Kelly Elliott but this just frustrated me

Fall in Love with Chloe & Rip

Chloe has been in love with Rip since kindergarten but he keeps putting her in the friend zone, then one day she gets brave enough to tell him how she feels but it doesn't end up the way she expects. Years later when Chloe comes home and brings her future with her, Rip knows he has to leap or lose the only women he has ever loved to his fears. I loved this story, it was all about the building of Rip and Chloe's love for each other throughout their lives. I cried a few tears and felt Chloe's yearning through the pages. This was my first read by Kelly Elliott but it won't be my last. I can't wait to read another book by her and fall in love all over again.

Good book

I liked the book but I got kind of annoyed with the lack of communication between the 2 and her indecisiveness. Then when they got together how fast it all went. It got kind of cheesy. But all in all a good book

Lackluster love

This was a hard book for me. I almost didn’t make it through the first half. I found Rip to be a joke. He was devastatingly in love with Chloe his whole life, yet when she told him she wanted a relationship, he was too scared to persue it. Then he let FOUR years go by wanting her so badly he had to leave college, but never told her he love her too. SERIOUSLY?! What kind of wussy hero is that? This was my first book by this author. Maybe if I had read the previous books, as I could tell there were many, I would have been more understanding of the totally lackluster “all consuming” love the H and h shared. But it did not come through as very believable.

friends to lovers

It's a typical story of two people who grow up together and become best friends and when they are in college she wants more and he's scared he'll screw it up. It's a similar story to another book by this author. But I like this one. Well written and perfect narrators.

Beautiful Story!

Loved it! Loved it! 💗 Love it!💗 Very sweet story, with a happy ending. Every now and then we need to listen to a book full of young love and a bit predictable.

A Waste

Unfortunately the protagonist female character was annoying. Her relationship with her fiance makes her seem clueless and childish. And the characters feel one dimensional. I couldn't get into the story. A waste of time.

Love It!

Truly enjoyed that this. The first part/half had me all worked up. I was like come on and wake up & get out of your own heads! Ugh! But that is a testament to how great the writing is on the story. Cause I was Into it. I adored how everything worked out, HEA ending.
This is stand alone but reading other books from Kelly Elliott we get to dip back into some families we love.
Savannah Peachwood & StephenDexter are amazing with narration! Couple of favorites! Great job!
