It was only three months.

Her task is simple: run her aunt’s lakeside resort and return to her life in Los Angeles.

Easy. Or maybe not.

Julia is smart, sensible, and all business, until a sexy lumberjack turns up the heat and melts away her inhibitions.

Ruggedly handsome Luke —a former Marine and divorced father instantly caught Julia’s eye…if she’d only admit it. You see, J

Romance isn’t my usual genre, but Elle is a phenomenal writer. She paints such vivid scenes and characters. If you love a good, solid romance novel with just a touch of family drama and a whole lot of strong characters, you’ll love Stay With Me, Julia.

Buckle up strap in and get ready because you are in for one hell of a ride with Julia and Luke. Luke is a Marine with a heart of gold wrapped in platinum, but betrayals from his past have left him jaded. Julia is tough business woman who didn't know Luke was everything she didn't know she wanted or needed in a man. When they come together in this sweet, captivating, and endearing love they will make you root for them time and time again. I loved, loved, loved everything about this book and I can ...more

Let me start by saying that this first book in the Faithful Falls series is very well written. I love small town romances with their quirky, fun characters and witty interactions. This one certainly has all of that, including the town gossip, the bartender, and of course, the town slut. Luke and Julia don't exactly get off on the right foot, but their chemistry is undeniable, so with some good timing and the right words, the romance gets underway. As part of a blended family, I feel like the aut ...more

I received an ARC from the publisher. This review contains my honest opinion. Stay With Me, Julia was a joy to read. It starts out introducing us to Julia, a hard-working young woman who is surprised to have any attraction at all to the groundskeeper, Luke. He’s not her usual type. He’s a rugged former Marine with a past that includes an ex and kids. Julia had always been on track for the perfect life with a simple suit and tie kind of man. Needless to say, that kind of man didn’t come close to ...more

I really, really enjoyed this book. From the minute I met Julia and Luke, I was hooked. Their first encounter had me in stitches. The humour throughout this book was great.
Elle has weaved such a beautiful tale with these two. I especially enjoyed how we got to explore the difficulty of divorced parents and the trouble with finding love afterwards. I really felt for Julia and Luke trying to overcome the issues this can bring in a relationship. Whilst I did feel like Julia was a little unreasonabl

Julia is spending months managing aunt’s resort in the mountains of Northern Idaho. The lodge is classy and upscale, beautifully decorated, beautifully situated. She gets off on the wrong foot with Luke the resident lumberjack and grounds manager. Luke is a handsome man who steers clear of the kind of high maintenance women he thinks Julia is. But he can’t help feeling a strong attraction to Julia. How will it work out with the mountain man and the city girl? Both desire faithful love, but Julia ...more

I loved this book. Elle knows how to describe scenery well. It makes me want to visit this imaginary town in Idaho, even in winter, and find some huckleberry syrup in their cute, little flower shop. She also knows how to write about love (especially the hot, steamy kind) and the challenges that come with becoming a blended family. Luke is a dream boat and Julia is fierce. Even though they are from completely different backgrounds, they end up falling hard and fast for each other. I don't want to ...more

Elle Linder let me read her book in return for a review. It was such an easy read, and a fast read. It was really clear and there were no parts that made me scratch my head. I have to say, that Luke was my favorite character, and I enjoyed reading about him the most. He was pretty hot. He and Julia got together too quickly and easily for my taste. I wished the suspense was drawn out more. I fell in love with the setting, and I could smell it, hear it and see it. Just very beautiful.
