Review: Reckless Love by Kelly Elliott (Cowboys & Angels #7)

Gah! This! This was the ending that this heartrending and heartwarming series deserved. Bestselling author Kelly Elliott closes out her fan favorite Cowboys & Angels series with the youngest Parker brother--and the second to the youngest Parker sibling--righting wrongs in hopes of getting a second chance to prove to his first and only love that they're meant to be together. Trevor Parker and Scarlett Littlefield knew one another for years before they shared the kiss that would ensure that neither with forget the other. Years would pass and they would share kisses and more, but while Scarlett wanted nothing more than for Trevor to fully lay claim on the heart that's always been his, Trevor wasn't ready to commit to her. Their last night together--the very same night he ran from her--results in a pregnancy they aren't prepared for. Trevor knows he needs to prove to Scarlett that his days of running and carousing are long behind him, but Scarlett has had her heart broken too many times by Trevor, and now that she's carrying their child, she fears being reckless once more may damage more than her life. Will the love of a Parker prevail yet again?

I've said it before and I'll say it again: the end of a well-loved series is always bittersweet, as is the case with Kelly Elliott's love stories centering on the seven Parker siblings. Ending the series with the one sibling who didn't look like he would ever settle down seemed to be the perfect thing. There was angst and drama but there was also some lightheartedness--and much needed wisdom and guidance--courtesy of Trevor's family. I loved that Scarlett's need for time and space unintentionally forced Trevor to up his game and really work to regain her trust. The love was always going to be there, but this story highlights the reality that in order for a relationship to truly have a fighting chance, there needs to be more than love existing between the people involved. This series ender came THIS close to getting five-plus stars, but I just felt that the situation between Scarlett and her parents was glossed over and not really delved into as much as I thought was necessary. Still, I loved this series, and Reckless Love more than satisfied my heart. Five stars. ♥
