Loving Ellie by Lindsey Brookes


Ellie Sanders is pregnant and alone. Carrying a child she’d conceived the one and only time she’d lain with her closest friend, Jarrett Tanner. A man she’d agreed to marry for the sake of their child. A man she’d loved, but not as he’d deserved. And now he was gone.

Lucas Tanner returns home to settle his younger brother Jarrett’s estate only to discover his brother left behind a very pregnant fiancée. Having lost his own wife and their baby she’d been carrying years before, he’s bound and determined to stick around and make sure Ellie’s child makes it safely into the world. Even if it means facing the ghosts of his past.

Struggling financially and emotionally, Ellie is torn between keeping her baby and giving it up for adoption. She wants to give her child the chance she never had - to be raised by two loving parents. If only she could make Lucas understand. And, if only she wasn’t falling for a man with no heart left to give.

Lucas finds himself wanting more. Wanting Ellie. But what if he gives in to his deepening feelings and loses her, too?

One fears abandonment. The other fears loss. Can Ellie and Lucas put their painful pasts behind them and finally find true happiness? Or are the emotional walls they’ve built up around their hearts too strong to tear down?

Ruthie☆☆☆
This lovely read has two appealing characters at its heart, but a whole town's worth of extras that add to the story. Ellie, wounded by her parents' disregard for her, is flighty to say the least, when it comes to love. When her fiancé dies in a crash and his brother returns to town, it is inevitable that many truths will surface, but can they get pass the past?

Although I read this in the heat of summer, I think this is one that I will pull out again when it is cold and dark and I need some cosy romance.
