REVIEW ➞ She’s the One by Kelly Elliott


The day I first laid eyes on Abby Boyer, I knew she was the one. The girl I would marry and spend the rest of my life with, and I vowed to do everything I could to make her happy.

There was just one problem, I couldn’t make her happy during one of the darkest moments of our marriage. No matter how hard I tried, my love for her wasn’t enough to make her stay.

I’ve spent the last two years of my life trying to forget how much I still loved her.

Wouldn’t you know it, now that I finally managed to move on, Abby shows back up in Boggy Creek. Out of the blue. Here to stay.

They say time heals all wounds—well, two years wasn’t enough time to cover up the scars of our broken past because I still feel the pain like it was yesterday. My wounds are still healing, and not even my love for Abby can fix us…but will that love allow me to forgive her and finally move on?

I wish I could move on, but it’s fucking hard when you gave your heart and soul to someone and they let it go without a second thought.


From reading the previous books in the series I knew this one would be an emotional journey. Bishop and Abby fell in love at a young age, but they are perfect for each other. Their story shows that life isn’t always easy and neither are relationships.

You never forget your first love and that is the case for Bishop and Abby. However, there is a lot of heartbreak and pain that occurred in the last two years between them. Each of them struggled individually. Now, time has passed and things have changed. Abby realized that it was time to stop running, to stop hiding. But is it too late for her and Bishop?

I LOVED Bishop and Abby. Their story is heartbreaking, but also something real. Something that many people experience. The love, the chemistry and the connection is still so strong between them. You can feel that from the start. Their journey individually and as a couple was something they needed and I loved being along for the ride.

This story is full of emotions, love, spice and even a couple laughs (hello, slumber party). I love the small town of Boggy Creek and I can’t wait to return back to the town and to this group of friends and family.

If you’re looking for a small town, second chance romance this is one to read!
