[Release Day Launch + Review] Desired by Kelly Elliott


I thought all I wanted in my life was to succeed at football and one day take over my grandfather’s ranch. Nothing else mattered but those two things. 

Why suddenly did she appear every single night in my dreams? The faceless woman who had me waking up each morning soaked in sweat with my heart nearly pounding right out of my chest. 

Who was she? 

Where was she? 

And why was she the one thing I desired more than anything?


5 Stars from Renee!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, and heartbreak.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first

Cherished (Wanted, #4)
A Forever Love (Wanted, #5)
The Wanted Short Stories
All They Wanted

This more of a prequel to the wanted series.  You should read the series before reading this book.  You get the men’s POV for them falling.  You get Gunner, Josh and Jeff and let me tell you they are all swoon worthy. If you read the series, you know all these names.  You get more information on them from before they fell in love with the woman in the series.  You get glimpses of heart from all three men.  This book brings the series together just a little bit more.   

I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.


5 Stars from Brianna!

I'm not sure how she does it every single time but wow I'm absolutely speechless after reading this book. An extension...a prequel to the Wanted series that is going to steal your heart and completely blow your mind.

Desired is a complimentary book to this epic series and delivered quite the story from the three guys who already stole my heart. Gunner, Josh and Jeff exploded onto my kindle from the very first page and I just couldn't get enough. Getting into their minds and seeing it play out...swoon!

You think you know them. You've seen them fall in love. Now take a step back in time before it all happened and meet the guys and fall in love all over again.

 highly recommend this book.


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 had two passions in life, football and his grandfather’s ranch, until he falls for his best friends 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?

What will it take for them to realize they are all each other have ever WANTED?
