Book 1 in the Wanted series.

In the first book in Kelly Elliott's Wanted series, Gunner Matthews tries to convince Ellie Johnson to let go of the past and give their love a chance. Contains mature themes.

Verbally abused by her mother for years, 18-year-old Ellie Johnson always believed she would never be loved or wanted by anyone. She focused all of her attention on her grades and getting into the University of Texas to start a new life away from her mother. The last thing Ellie expected was to fall in love with Gunner Mathews, a starting linebacker for the University of Texas football team and not to mention, her brother's best friend.

Gunner only has two passions in life, football and his grandfather's ranch, until he falls for his best friend's little sister. He will stop at nothing to show Ellie how much he wants her, even if it means he has to move faster than she would like. Gunner knows they are meant to be together forever, but Ellie keeps denying her feelings out of fear of being hurt again. Every time he gets close to winning her love, something pushes her away again. Will Ellie ever be able to let go of the past and let him into her heart and will Gunner be patient enough to wait for her?

    I bet I would love this book if I were still a teenager, but as a young adult I could not appreciate the sappy dialogue and such. The author obviously tried to make the male characters seem like "guys" by having them curse, threaten harm, and even punch other guys but to no avail. I also was really annoyed with the overuse of some describers or language used in the book. The term "about dropped me to my knees" was so often used in this book I either rolled my eyes to it or cringed. The characters were just too shallow and lacked any normal conversation between each other. But it had a good enough plot that it kept me going and wanting to know the fate of each couple.

    I enjoyed this book very much except for the extremely foul and vulgar language! There really was no need for it...every other word out of every characters' mouth was a vulgarity, even the old grandfather. I am pretty certain I will not be reading any more books by this author.
