From New York Times best selling author, Kelly Elliott, comes a new series her Wanted fans will adore. Filled with love, hope, and second chances, Love at First Sight, is book one in the Southern Brides series. Each book in this series will be stand alone books. 

Love at first sight.

That's what it was when Rip Myers came up to me in kindergarten. From that point on, we were inseparable best friends.

When I work up the courage to tell Rip I love him, I am met with rejection. He tells me he treasures our friendship too much. That statement might as well be a knife to my heart.

I want to hold out hope that he'll change his mind.

Instead, he moves on.

The only choice I have is to pretend that doesn't slay me.

So, I say yes…to the man I love. But he isn't the man I've been in love with nearly my entire life.


  • Chloe and Rip’s story is one you don’t want to miss

    WOW I couldn’t put this book down. This is definitely my new favorite book by Kelly Elliott. I have read all her books. Chloe has been a favorite character of mine from the Cowboy and Angels series. Chloe and Rip’s story is one you don’t want to miss. If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would.
  • Sweet and sexy friends to lovers

    By Finchelfanforever
    This book made me swoon and it moved me to tears. Kelly Elliott has a way of drawing you in to the worlds she creates for her characters and this book was no different. I absolutely loved it. Friends to lovers is a hard trope to pull off, but man does this Author nail it. I fully believed in these two as friends and I was fully invested and right there with them when they became a couple. It just flowed so well. This is a standalone novel, but if you've read the Cowboys and Angels Series from this Author you will know who these characters are. It was a delight for me to read about Chloe as an adult, to see her process things as a woman. I absolutely adored her and think she's someone I'd be friends with. Rip?? Oh, I wanted to smack him upside the head a few times but my goodness, did I wind up falling HARD for him. He's smart, sweet, sexy, funny, protective and I could go on and on. As I mentioned above, I believed in these two. I rooted for them from the start. I thought the pacing of this book was absolutely perfect for them. These two had a connection that was just pure and true. Their sexy times were definitely hot, but there was just as much to their relationship OUTSIDE of the bedroom. This book absolutely moved me to tears in spots. I swooned, I laughed and I fell in love. I'd absolutely recommend this title.

  • Emotional, touching and charming romance

    By Virna Thompson
    When I first decided to read Love At First Sight by Kelly Elliott, I did not realize it was a spin-off from one of my favorite series, Cowboys & Angels, however, this can be read as a standalone. Though I did love the Cowboys and Angels series so much and highly recommend it! This story features Chloe and Rip and their emotionally heartbreaking and touching journey. Chloe and Rip have been inseparable since they were young children. Best friends who were always there for each other through it all. Everyone always thought they would end up together. But their friendship meant so much to them, could they risk it all for a maybe? Rip did not think so and just like that; it seemed their chances for more were over. I loved Rip. He was strong, determined, loyal and honest. When he loved, he loved with his everything. Chloe was smart, beautiful and just as determined. Rip was the man for her, but they seemed to be on a different paths. Could they find their way back together? I absolutely loved reading Love at First Sight. It was sweet, angsty and charming romance! 4.5-stars. Happy reading.

    SO EXCITED FOR CHLOE’S STORY I CAN’T HANDLE IT! We met Chloe (and Rip) in Kelly’s previous series, and I was so excited that although she wasn’t continuing that series to the next generation was providing us with Chloe’s love story and it was everything I could want and more! Chloe and Rip have been in love with each other since childhood but are both too afraid to act on those feelings. When the pair starts college and Chloe attempts to but is shut down by Rip, she decides to move on, although her feelings remain the same. When her current boyfriend decides to propose after graduation, Chloe says yes although it feels completely wrong, and it tears Rip apart. Thankfully, she comes to her senses and calls off the engagement soon after, and after hashing their feelings out; Rip and Chloe start to date. With the quirks that involve the Parker family, they add a level of comedy and familiarity to this book that makes you feel part of them with knowledge of their inside jokes and what they mean. Things then start to go on overdrive for the pair, and they start to fulfill the plans they made as dreams as children. Per usual, I can’t get enough of Kelly’s books, and this one was no exception with all the things I love about her storylines and style of writing. With Kelly stating she isn’t continuing the next generation of the Parker family, I’m eager to see who’s next in this series! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
  • Love Kelly’s books!

    I absolutely loved this book! I have been looking forward to Chloe’s story ever since I fell in love with her in Lost Love. Chloe and Rip had been best friends since kindergarten and in love with each other for years. Some things tore them apart until they both realized what they wanted. I loved how these two loved each other, I could feel their connection from just reading this beautiful story! Once again Kelly has blown me away with her words. Rip may have just taken Gunners spot as my favorite Kelly hero!
  • Didn’t read all of it.

    By ReadingMomma4
    Couldn’t finish it. I really wanted to like this book. But it was so repetitive and towards the end it just too trashy. Not my reading preference.
  • Amazing

    By Bookworm@15
    Such a beautifully written book. I loved it start to finish. And let me say this, Rip is my new favorite character.
  • Return of some favorites

    It was a cute story for Chloe Cat. I was a bit frustrated at how 1/3 of the book was their denial of each other’s love. But overall good quick read.
