Never give up hope

This story was an emotional rollercoaster. I laughed, yelled, cried and my heart overflowed with hope and love. Great characters, wonderful storyline and an overpowering sense that we all have a path in which to live in and those that never give up have positive outcomes.

Changing Us by Brooklyn Taylor is a story that will grab your heart and have you hoping against hope for an HEA.

Changing Us focuses on Ford and Elise. Two people who are incredibly in love and have overcome so much in their lives.

Just as they start to share their future together, fate steps in and throws them another curve ball.

This story is about fighting for those you love, learning to forgive, and most of all ... always holding onto love.

4 Stars!!!

What a beautiful love story! If this one doesn't give you all the feels I do not know what will!! Ford and Elise are such a sweet selfless couple. Their story is about perservering through life's trials - the ups and downs, good and bad - about a love you will do anything to keep. Beautifully written! Great read!

The first book I ever read by Brooklyn Taylor was Finding Me. It featured Ford Kelly and Elise Riley. Changing Us is the continuation of their story and it doesn’t lack for anything! Changing Us is a story about Ford and Elise working towards their “happily ever after.” They have all the love any couple could hope for and they have a solid plan in place to reach their goals. Unfortunately, things don’t go as planned. Ford and Elise are faced with trials and tribulations that can shatter the foun ...more

What a great story! The emotional ride in this book is intense.

Elise and Ford are the perfect couple, or as close to it as you can get. They support each other, love and confide in each other and are each other's best friend. Their love is tested over and over when life throws them so many curve balls that at times it seems they won't make it.

Elise has not had an easy childhood. She's had to deal with a lot of turmoil in her life and one specific act of cowardice from a "trusted friend" leaves h

I love a good worrying. I like to know when my kids are on the road so I have something specific to worry about. And of course, there is the every popular generalized worrying I do all the time. Some times I don't sleep well, but I get several hours of worrying in.

Warning: This is book 2 in the series. It could be read as a stand alone but I don't recommend it

Elisa and Ford had a great love story. A sweet, hot love affair that has progressed to a love story. One they wa

Beautifully written story about what happens after you find love and you have to do to keep it. The path is not always easy.

Ford Kelly & Elise Riley are two beautiful souls. This is their journey of love, hope, & perseverance. Characters are complex & well seasoned. A tear jerker novel that you will need a tissue box. A story that is written with passion & reflects real life. I recommend reading Finding Me first as this is the contuation of their story. However, I was unaware & did not read it first & still understood the story as a little background was provided.

Changing us💕

Changing us is such a beautiful love story💜 it's a MUST READ. Ford and Elise love story is like no other. Their love and strength for one another got tested in the most life altering situation that could have happened. Ford beat the odds with the love of Elise and with those that love him the most.

I am a newbie to his author so I had no knowledge that there was a previous book about this couple. That being said, I was a little lost with the couple’s back story. I felt like I could have used a few more details. That being said I truly enjoyed Ford and Elise’s story. It is a riveting story of a young couple’s love and life complications. Ford and Elise take us on their journey. We see how they maneuver love, heartbreak and some very serious life decisions.

Talk about going through the wringer while reading a book! After reading Finding Us I found myself missing Ford and Elise, and wishing I could have more of their story. Well, Ms. Taylor certainly delivered on that! Watching what happens after happily ever to this sweet couple was definitely a treat, even with as much anguish it caused me. I haven't cried this hard while reading in a long time but please don't think it's all sadness all the time. There was some heat and laughs, and reminders why ...more

The title of this book is perfect.  Elise and Ford are two young people in love.  Ford is reluctant football player but Elise is always there to cheer him on.  He has offers to go play professional but football was never really his thing.  All he wanted after school was to be with Elise. He had plans to ask Elise to marry him at end of game. He even had ring in his pocket during game.  Toward end of game, he was hit hard and was rushed to hospital.  He'd had concussions before but nothing like t ...more

We knee Elise and Ford, we had followed their story and how they fought their demons to achieved their HEA. Fast forward to four years into their loving fill lives.

Be ready to take one of the most heart warming journey like you never taken before.

This story not only will put a smile on your face, it will make you a believer in love, loyalty, and faith. Don't get me wrong this is not a religious book, but it will bring back your faith, the same faith you might have lost and didn't realized it.

An emotional read that I really liked. I still don't like Elise's Mother though. This was a good book about love, marriage and the trying times and good times in a marriage. Elise and Ford are happily married when new problems arise. Are they able to stick together and make it work? What parts does Elise's Mother play in these issues? Read this story about persevering and find out how it all works out.
I was given an ARC copy of this book from the Author to read and review if I chose to do so.

I don't even know what to say. This is the first book I have read by this author, and my God, it was beautiful, heartbreaking, and showed how true love can conquer all obstacles. This story wrecked me, so much I had to put it down and take a breather for a few minutes. This was an amazing story about Ford and Elise, what she suffered through and Ford's love helped her overcome it. Then Ford... what an astonishing show of love, and taking their vows seriously. Some can't handle it, but this story ...more

Ford and Elise are a heart warming and heart wrenching couple.

I was pulled into their story from the beginning, I had a hard time reading this book quickly like I normally would. I had to stop and take breaks because of the emotions that they were feeling and that I was feeling.

Holy moly this book is not what I expected. A definite could not put down and a tear jerking book. Loved the plot and characters. You definitely root for their love and Ford to make it.

YA isn’t my typical read. This is just that and a second chance romance.

Changing Us focuses on Ford and Elise’s young love relationship. They’re undying love for one another is put to the ultimate test! Will they be able to survive or will it shatter them? I struggled at first with the story, maybe because it’s not my typical read. But the more I read, the more I understood their story. Some of the book was very depressing, and I had a hard time with that, but there’s a very good reason for it.
Lindsay Thompson-Sublett
Have tissues for your tears.

This was my first book I've read by her. I enjoyed it when I was reading it but when I put it down it wasn't a book that was calling to be to hurry back to. Yes, I wanted to finish it and find out what happened but it didn't suck me in. I hope that makes sense.

This book made me cry multiple times. I would love to read a second chance romance for her friends Shay as well.

I'd recommend this book.

I received an ARC of this book. I fell in love with Elise and Ford. This is a story of true love in sickness and health. You will laugh, you will try to not show those tears that come in parts of the book. You will want to scream at times. This is a book I didn't want to put it down. Can't wait to read more of Brooklyn Taylor!

Ford & Elise
Ms. Taylor never disappoints me with anything she writes! Superbly written, dual POV, they are fighting for his life, and through it all, keep loving each other fiercely, even though he has his moments. This novel has so much emotion, keep tissues handy. I believe that it is her best work ever. Loved it!!
