4.5 stars! This is the first time that I have read a book with a heroine who was a single mother with kids from different fathers. She arrives broke with very few possessions and four kids. Elle is the character I most wanted to meet at the end of book 1. Clay and she had a tough childhood that they survived, and now it was her turn to find love with a town that was mostly against her.
I enjoyed how her story unfolded. There were some surprises, and not all of the town rumors proved to be true. There was heartbreak and healing; loss and letting go; and finally allowing in love. Elle proved to be a kick ass, independent 33 year old woman who had poor experiences with men. This was her opportunity to meet someone who had a major family issue, yet saw past everything to fall in love with her.
There were some sizzling sexy scenes too. Logan wanted and loved her; he definitely refused to see her as the town did. He was not scared off by her kids, her lack of money, or that she was three years older. But he wants a baby, and she has sworn off having another child.
She reconnects with friends and heals old relationships. This story is multi-faceted, but always with the romance at the heart of it. Good side characters too with some unexpected twists.
This is book 2 in the series, but can be read as a standalone. I enjoyed book 1 a lot. I find that this series deals with issues that are not socially acceptable and offers compassion and understanding instead of negative judgment. There is much depth to this romance.
Bonnie Edwards stories always give me a tooth ache. Now that's not a bad thing, they're the painless kind. But she writes the sweetest love stories. And throws in a few shockers to make sure you stay awake.
Loving Logan is no different. We meet Logan and Elle in Finding Mercy, the first book in the Return to Welcome series. Elle has been through the wringer. She left Welcome to escape and now she must return to the gossip, to the condemnation of the town. But she's more than able to handle it because she knows she must -- for her kids.
Logan, oh be still my heart, Logan! Logan really just wants the American dream - - a good job, a good woman, and children. And his heart leads him to Elle but she doesn't fit the image he's always had, in his head, of what his woman would be like.
But we all know the head and the heart don't always agree. There are some twists and turns on their path but nothing they can not overcome - together!
Loving Logan Bonnie Edwards is book Two in the Return to Welcome series. This is the story of Elle Foster and Logan Hughes. I have read the previous book but feel you can make this a standalone book if you choose to do so. Elle once lived in Welcome but gossip and a pregnancy made her leave her home town. Now years later she is back going forward with her life. Elle is now a women with four kids and has the mind set to never get pregnant again. Logan is a little younger than Elle but he has the dream of finding the right women and having a big family. The attraction between Elle and Logan is there for sure but with each at a different point in their life....can they find that in the end love is all that matters? Great sweet read!!
I absolutely loved this story about Elle and Logan. Elle is a single mom doing the best she can for her children. Logan is attracted to Elle from the beginning, but he knows they can’t have a forever because she says she never wants to have another child. Logan wants his own child with eyes, hair, or some characteristic, since he was adopted. Will Elle end up loving Logan or will he found another? Grab your copy and get ready to fall in love with all these characters.
I loved this story. Of Elle and Logan falling in love. Bonnie brings out the emotions and personalities of the characters, as well as the real life issues of being a single parent,past emotional pain, and being an adopted child with loving parents. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good love story.
