When Paul Harris laid eyes on Ellie Caldwell the first day of high school, his heart stopped and never beat the same again. However, his best friend Lance spoke first and ended up with the girl. Paul watched them from the sidelines as he fell harder and harder, caught beneath rules of friendship and bro codes. Ellie secretly desired Paul, but he never made a move.

Ten years later, Ellie is living in New York City, worlds away from her ex and the man her heart always craved. A New Years’ resolution sends her back to the country, bringing Ellie face to face with her past.

A forbidden love unfolds between a small town cowboy and a big city fashion designer. When time and distance are no longer excuses, secrets and broken promises come in between Paul and Ellie. All because of the one thing that has always stood in their way … Lance Walton.

This book takes place during the same time frame as Watching Fireflies. So, it gives you some perspective as to what's going on in all the characters lives during this time. Paul and Ellie have some serious chemistry going on that has only built up more after their years apart. I enjoyed watching their relationship unfold. They were funny and so darn cute. Dragonfly Awakening by Jaycee Ford was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

A really sweet romance! I read this when it was first posted on Wattpad and loved it all over again reading the published version. It's a deceptively quieter story than the others in the series, but make no mistake, this one packs a real emotional punch! There were many moments when I had to pause before reading on because my heart had just melted. The times when Ellie and Paul are apart are infused with love and longing, and when they're together, it's fire and heat that's so hot it's practically combustible. I especially loved Paul. He's a stand up guy who wants to do the right thing, but that means he can't have the woman he's loved for 10 years. There's something irresistible about a strong guy who shows his sweet, caring side with his girl, and I was rooting for him and Ellie all the way through. It was a pleasure to reread this, and I will definitely be reading it again! ~Katherine

Sweet story of love and challenges. A story of soulmates and friendships This is paul and Ellie's story of love at first sight. Test of love using time,  distance, misunderstandings and friendships. Paul is one HOT, stubborn cowboy. Ellie is a stylish fashionista who lives on Park Avenue in NYC. "Bros before hoes" is one such challenge. Will love win out? Looking forward to Lance's story and what makes him tick.

Chuckles. If I say that I love this book, it'd be an understatement. I wish I had a word to describe how much I am into this book. Every word of this book is the reason that I fell more for it. Unable to keep this book down, I walked into the world of past, love and twists. Full of sensual aura, this book screams, "Read Me" Jaycee has come up with a series which I refuse to forget. She has made me fall in love with sexy cowboys and her writing. "She had tasted of whiskey and heaven." -winks-

Ellie and Paul have loved each other from the moment they saw each other however they where never together because of Paul's friend Lance. Ellie dated him all through high school while wishing it was Paul she was with. Even if she broke up with Lance she could never be with Paul because of the bro-code. Paul and Ellie kissed once at a bonfire before she left for college. They both have dated but nothing serious because no one could compare to the other for them. Now Ellie has come back for the weekend to see if she if she should let go of Paul or see if they can make a go of it after all these years. The night before she is supposed to leave she runs into Paul. They go back to her room and give into what they have been feeling for all these years. She leaves the next day to go back to New York. She leaves and note with her number telling him to use it. Paul can't stop thinking about Ellie now that he has had her but does he want her enough to tell Lance or will he start something and keep a secret? This is the second book in the love bug series and I have loved both books. The characters are fantastic. The books are written so well that I was drawn into their world. Pulling for them and feeling for them. Yelling when Paul was in danger and screwing everything up. I felt the love when they were together and the distance when they were apart. They had to over come several things to be together and it wasn't easy but they were going to try. There were mistakes and misunderstanding but in the end it was worth it. This book takes place a little before the first book and then overlaps the same time frame as the first book. They are all great friends and come together when needed. I don't want to give away any spoilers so I will stop now. My brain is runny a hundred miles an hour with all the happened in the book and I don't want to spoil it for anyone. These book are great and I would re-read. Another great one Jaycee. I was given this book in return for an honest review.

Well Written, Entertaining from start to finish Favorite Quotes: “I never knew if she fell in love with the money and then the man, or if it was the man and then the money.  Either way, she loved them both dearly.” “If every morning for the rest of my life your smile was the first thing I could see, it still wouldn’t be enough.” “His lips found mine and the earth stopped its rotation.  Nothing in this world mattered when he kissed me, and I didn’t have a care in the world.” “I have never lived until your fire awakened me.  I never want to be parted from you.” “You are and always have been the love of my life.  I have never deserved you, never deserved the chance to be with you, but somehow, you are here with me.  Be with me forever.”  My Review: I adored this story from the first page to the last.  I had Ms. Ford’s highly enjoyable debut novel, Watching Fireflies, months ago and was instantly addicted.  I think it safe to say that I took to her writing like a crack ho takes to the pipe, and being the greedy smut junkie that I am, upon finishing - I immediately wanted more.  While you don’t need to read the first book in the series to enjoy the second, it is so much more fun to read them all. Both are stand-alone volumes, but the two stories interweave and the second continues both stories further.  Excellently written, tastefully sensual, intelligent yet easy to read, and impossible to put down – in fact I couldn’t…at all.  I had to plug in my trusty Kindle to keep going.  I am anxious to see who Ms. Ford’s laser focus hones in on next, and know I definitely will be paying attention for her next delicious offering.

This is Paul and Ellie’s story. Paul has loved Ellie for over ten years. Only problem is that one of his best friends got to her first. So they are only friends. Paul never told her how he felt and she went away to live in New York. Now she is moving back to town and they are trying to be friends. They can’t be together as he does not want to hurt one of his best friends. As they sneak around trying to have a relationship some small misunderstandings work against them and almost rip them apart. Now Ellie wants to be with Paul publicly but he is still trying to hide them. Can Ellie be Paul’s secret lover? Or is it just too much that he does not want to be seen with her? Will Paul leave it too late to publicly claim her? Or will it all be over before he even has to claim her? Loved Paul and you can feel his struggle with hurting Ellie and his best friend Lance. Ellie is sweet but also tough when she needs to be. They make a really great couple. Can’t wait to read the other books in this series. I highly recommend this story and this series.
