Whew! My emotions were on a roller coaster! That is putting it mildly. From the first paragraph until The End, I was drawn in and could not put this book down. Elizabeth Marx has a way of doing that. This is the second book of hers that I have read and the same thing has happened. I’m sensing a pattern here, and I LOVE IT!

This book is a complete 180 from the last book that I read from Ms. Marx. Just Close Enough was way More than Enough for me!! To say that it deserves 5 stars is not enough, 7 o

4.5 stars!

I've been eagerly looking forward to this book from the moment I met Alex and Polly Anna in Just in Case, the first book in the Alabama Secrets series. Those two had a fiery chemistry and I knew if given the opportunity, their story would be incredible and hard to forget. Thankfully, Elizabeth Marx also saw the possibilities and wrote their story.

Alex is a man on a mission. He's trying to find his brother and that means finding the man he thinks is responsible for his disappearance by

Often times when one starts it on a journey there intended destination isn't where the end up. As they move along the path events occur and truths unfold that alter the way the river of life flows. If one is lucky they may find that special something out someone who can pull them from their reverie and change their life forever.

Alex had lived his life with great pain and great regret in his heart, though on the outside he presents as a well educated and determined businessman who is as solid as

Alexander arrived in Crossroads looking for Billy Buford. He knew if he found Billy he would be able to find his missing brother Kon. What he found instead was Polly Anna. Polly Anna was Billy's fiancé. She was waiting for him to come home. A promise was a promise and she was determined to wait. Sparks start to fly

I love this story line. Polly Anna, I guess you can call her a southern bell. Yet she was a tom boy. had no problem getting down and dirty. Being forced to help him out. Then

Another amazing book by Elizabeth Marx.
I decided not to read the first one in the series but after reading this one I'm a little curious about Revell and Scarlett.

But this is about Alex and Polly Anna.
Alex wants revenge, his brother has been missing a while now. He went missing with another guy in his unit: Billy. The only way to get to Billy is his fiance: Polly Anna.
So Alex starts watching her. But one day they get in to an accident together, and Alex can't leave her alone anymore. So starts t

I loved this book and took my time and savored it! While it is a stand alone the characters were in the first book of the series so before starting Just Close Enough, I went back and reread Just in Case so I could get reacquainted with Alex and Polly Anna. Just Close Enough actually starts before Just in Case which gave me more history on how the two heroes from each book-Alex and Revell became friends which I really enjoyed. My favorite part of the book is the banter between Alex and Polly Anna ...more

Completely found myself lost in this book! Better yet the series so far! The writing abilities this author has is remarkable! The characters and the story will keep you on your toes, no questions asked! Fill full of a little of everything, you will differently find yourself lost from reality in this book!

Love, suspense and revenge are all in this great novel. Alex travels to Alabama in search of his brother who disappeared with his friend Billy Buford while serving in the military. He has been keeping a watch on Polly Anna Coots, Billy's fiancé, hoping he will show to see her. While out driving Alex almost crashes into Polly Anna who is out riding her horse. Their love story takes off from there intertwined with the mystery of his brother's disappearance.

I really loved this very well written sto

You did it again! Another book that I could not put down. I absolutely love the characters, especially Polly Anna. Her hard headedness reminded me of myself. This book blends romance and realism. One minuite you love the characters and the next minute you hate them. Elizabeth Marx brings them to life. You feel as if you know them, they are your family, or at least that couple down the block. The plot twists keep you reading. Will Alex really get the girl or not. You know he will, but times you w ...more

I enjoyed this story. It has suspense and steamy romance. This story will have you feeling all kinds of emotions. Alex is hot and sexy and looking for his brother. Polly Anna is feisty, tomboy and town's favorite daughter. When Alex and Polly Anna meet the attraction is strong and the sparks fly. The only problem is Polly Anna is engaged to the man Alex is looking for. Will Alex found the answers he's looking for? Can Alex and Polly Anna fight the attraction? This is a great read and won't disap ...more

Windy City writer Elizabeth Marx brings cosmopolitan flair to her fiction, which is a blend of romance and fast-paced Chicago living with a sprinkle of magical realism. In her past incarnation she was an interior designer--not a decorator--which basically means she has a piece of paper to prove that she knows how to match and measure things and can miraculously make mundane pieces of furniture ap
