Josh & Heather's Story!!!

I just finished Saved (book #2). The ending, which ultimately leads us into this book, left me DEVASTATED!

You better make it right Ms. Elliot or I will NEVER FORGIVE YOU =) Bring it!!
Has to be most ironic title ever!

Before you troll this NON-review and raise the following points:

Hero has amnesia and DOESN’T have his bearings - I am well aware of that fact BUT he HIMSELF IS aware of that fact too and I don’t know may be should focus on getting his bearings back BEFORE sticking his tongue invading someone’s tonsils?

Hero has amnesia and isn’t very aware of his surroundings - lie. He IS very much aware of his surroundings because even though he doesn’t remember he has been INFOR

WTF Kelly Elliott! You are supposed to be writing romance books, not torture your readers until the summer books! ugh... I want some good teasers asap Kelly. Like for real.

I was wondering if Josh would cheat on heather..after having amnesia...and my gut was telling me the truth!

I was disgusted with him....yeah he felt a strong connection after seeing Heather after loosing his memory and have been told they were dating and he wanted to propose....YET as soon as his ex make a move on him he just cheated without so much of a resistance! and no reaction of questioning his fidelity! I was just sick and will not continue with the series!

Before I read the book...
Omg, why do I keep thinking that maybe he lost some of his memory from the car crash and he doesn't remember his love for Heather, it's the only reason I can think that he would go off and ask Victoria to marry him. Unless Heather was scared from the car crash and she dumps Josh again. The epilogue in Saved made me want to scream for poor Heather! What is Josh thinking! Thing is, I'm dreading reading this book but at the same time looking forward to it. I know, don't ask

After reading the epilogue... I have to say I kinda want Heather to ditch Josh (maybe forever)
Yeah of course I'm all for true love will conquer all! But really? Josh engaging to an old fling from before Heather? After all they've been through he leaves her again. Well sure I don't know everything since the scenes cut from "Josh might be dead!" To him proposing to a girl; Victoria.
And where did she come from? Well once I read the prologue for this book, we are given th

"...a love like that is too strong to be anything! A love like that will remain faithful to the very end."

We have already been following Heather and Josh's story throughout this series in Wanted and Saved. Heather is the sweet school teacher who lost her parents to tragedy and Josh is the reformed bad boy, man whore who was getting his life together. At the end of Saved, it looked like after many trials and tribulations that they were really in a good place, but a misunderstandin

August 20th Release Date!!!!! Can't wait for this book :)

Holy Moly.....Kelly Elliott has done it again!!!!! This book was FANTASTIC. I might even have to say that is was the best of the three so far. This story was so beautifully written that it had me feeling everything the characters were feeling. I really can't say to much about the story because it would ruin what happens in the story. Just know that any questions that were lingering from Saved are answered in this book. I absolutely loved J
Ugh, it's impossible not to love these books! I have fallen for every character and that ending is seriously killing me. I don't like it. it's hurting my heart big time. I think Faithful is my favorite story, but Gunner is still my favorite male. :) Very excited for Amanda and Brad's story then Jessie and Scott's! :) ...more

3 ⭐⭐⭐ - OK decent reads.
When I glanced over at Victoria again, I decided to just get it over with. As I walked toward her, I noticed her beautiful, long dark brown hair. She had it down today, and the thoughts running through my head were making my dick rock-hard. I’d hooked up with her more than any other girl, and she knew it. Something was missing though. I just wasn’t feeling it with her.

Yeah, she’s beautiful, and we have great fucking sex, but she’s definitely not the
To start with I was very excited to read Faithful and I'll just say that it was a huge disappointment. Definitely a very weak two star rating.

I feel like there were too many character POVs for the chapters. I found myself having to go back to the beginning of a chapter on more than one occasion to see who was narrating a chapter. Everybody sounds the same.

I swear the female characters love to get into arguments with girls and their own love interests at times. I feel like there is too much drama

Who would've thought that this is the book that would bring back the bookworm in me who gives reviews after reading a good book? Honestly, haven't updated my Goodreads for so long and I've read a lot of good books but I just can't find any time to make reviews (sorry). This particular book though was one of my most awaited book this year because the teaser in the 2nd installment (Saved) got me so hooked and curious as to why everything turned out like that for Josh and Heather.

I received an ARC of this book from the fair KelEl in exchange for an honest review and I think to get me to quit stalking her. Ha...fat chance of that!

Jesus H Christ, over and over again. I lost count of how many times the author uses this phrase/curse but I'm willing to bet its well close to 90? So there is the first thing I didn't care for.

Men crying!!! ALL OF THEM! I have never before come across a bigger group of pansy ass men. Every single one of them cries and tears up MULTIPLE TIMES, Josh, Jeff, Gunner, Brad, Dad.

And the CHEESE! Ugh! We're talking Feta, Ricotta, Mozzarella, American, Provolone, you name it. Freaking ridiculous.

Read it. Loved it. So much drama that you don't know whether to laugh, cry, or beat the shit out of someone! This book has it all! Best book in the series so far! I can't believe there is going to be a fourth book! So excited! Another great book by the amazing Kelly Elliot!!!!

I was hesitant with this one, because I didn’t really care for Heather in the previous books, the amnesia with a meddling ex interested me into giving it a shot. In this one we have former man-whore Josh, and meek orphaned Heather's story, and it follows the same formula as the other books, but this time we have two OW in the mix. At the end of Saved H & J have had an argument, and Josh is in critical condition after being in a car accident. In the epilogue there’s a teaser
Worst book of the series and that's such a shame because I enjoyed Saved. It was the same repetitive story-line as the first two books. And what happened to that epic cliffhanger from Saved? In this book (just like the last two) there's always some crazy and disrespectful woman trying to get with the heroes and the heroines are going off on them. I don't actually think there's that many of these types of women who throw themselves at married/engaged men in real life but there seems to be plenty ...more

I read this book because I wanted to know what was going to happen to this couple. I should have known. The two previous books I have rated 2 stars. This one didn't disappoint either. :(

So, points to mention.....
- The crying of both men and women constantly was just too much.
- The 'I love you's" was said so many times, I think they lost the meaning
of the words (more than 50 + times mentioned!)
- All the babies! They were popping out babies left, right and center!
- So much repetition.

I was sucked in to this new adult romantic chick lit with lots of secondary romances and sexy times. I liked the main plot but after awhile the side stories started taking over like a soap opera and things got repetitive especially the antagonist. I also got real tired of the phrase OMG. Josh and Heather's love is tested when he gets in a car accident and doesn't remember her.

I didn't read this series in order. This story starts with the car accident not the development of their relationship as
I DNFed this one ages ago. Way too long. Way too many characters' stories interwoven. It's supposedly about Heather and Josh, but there are so many other POVs I lost count. The evil OW and her minions are cookie cutter diabolical. Basically this author goes on my 'Not my cuppa' shelf. Way too much back and forth with the Evil OW getting up in their face again as often as the bad guy does in an overly cheesy action flick. ...more

"That wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be."
Now let me explain that sentance lol. I love this series so I didn't think the book would be bad. What I thought would be bad is my condition after I finished reading Faithful. Kelly Elliott writes emotional books, and you get so sucked into the story that you start feeling those emotions with the characters. After I finished reading S

With the way Kelly Elliott ended Saved, how could I resist not reading Faithful? With that kind of ending - I think nothing can stop me and the funny thing I just realized while writing this is that no matter how much I rant about this or that about this series, I still keep waiting for the next book to arrive and watch how the story of these group of people would unfold.

Faithful starts off where Saved left off, and what a cliffhanger it was! Oh and don't EVEN get me started on the epilogue. I think Kelly likes giving her readers heart attacks! No, but seriously, I thought my heart was breaking out of my chest with that damn epilogue. Kelly writes with so much emotion, and EVERY book she has written has made me cry at some point.

My heart was really put through the wringer with Josh and Heather's story. After a car accident Josh loses his memory and thinks he is
