Lauren Reynolds wanted only two things in life—to run her father’s horse breeding business and Colt Mathews. Fearing Colt would take her position within the family business, she tried to push him far away from her heart.

When life could no longer keep Lauren and Colt apart, their two worlds became one. Every second of every moment, they spent together. Their love bloomed into something neither of them imagined—a bond so strong Lauren and Colt believed nothing would ever stand in their way.

However, life threw a cruel twist into Colt and Lauren’s planned happily ever after. Will fate let them live out the life they dreamed of, or will one of them be left alone, lost and angry?

“I’ll spend forever holding you … even if it’s only in my memory.”

Super SWOON Alert!!!! Holding You is book 3 in the Love Wanted in Texas Series and revolves around Colt (Gunner & Ellie's son) and Lauren (Scott & Jessie's daughter). Boy of boy oh boy is Colt like his father. Heck, he might even be better than Gunner. OMG did I just say that in writing?!?!?!?! Colt and Lauren have been in love with each other since High School. However circumstances and hard headedness (Lauren) kept them apart. Nonetheless Colt knew Lauren was the one and he just kept that truth in his heart and just waited for her to realize. You also get glimpses of Grace's story which should be next and I am very looking forward to the rest of this series. Love this gang!!!!!! 4.5Stars #OneClick #ReadOn

I did like Lauren and Colt's story because I did not care for Lauren's parents story. I see why Lauren pushed Colt away in the beginning but I don't understand why she kept pushing him away all those years. With this book, they sure did jump into their relationship right away. I think that it is sweet that Colt wanted Lauren to be his first and he waited for her. For a college guy, that is practically unheard of. The thing that threw me was in the previous book, the football player that Lauren dated was named Bruce and in this book it was changed to Roger. I don't know what happened there but that was totally wrong. The thing that almost caused Colt to lose Lauren certainly was something that I was not expecting. That was a nice plot twist. What Colt does for Lauren at the end of the book was very sweet and romantic and I don't blame them for what they do because of what happened. Grace's story is next and I hope she is not as crass and she keeps coming across as.

It only took me a total of about 8 hours to read this book. Love everything Kelly writes and can't wait for Grace's story.

There was way more tension in previous books from these two characters but none in this one. I kept waiting for some conflict and/or build up but there wasn't any. No angst like in previous books. It was just an easy sweet story about a couple who liked each other since high school who admit feelings the first chapter.

 I absolutely love everything that Kelly Elliott writes. Holding You is the third book in her Love Wanted in Texas series. This book can be read as a standalone but to get a better feel for the characters I recommend reading the first two books in the series as well. This book focuses on Colt who happens to be the son of Gunner and Ellie and Lauren who is the daughter of Scott and Jessie from Kelly's Wanted series. Lauren Reynolds has loved Colt Mathews since she was six years old. She has never been able to open up and admit her feelings for him. When she sees him across the room at Luke and Libby's wedding flirting with another girl she finally decides its time to open up to him before he moves on with someone else. Things heat up quickly between these two and they finally get to show how much they love one another. Lauren has been upset with Colt because her dad thinks that she needs Colt's help in taking over the family business and she doesn't agree. When she finally opens up to him about it Colt decides he will do whatever it takes to convince Scott that Lauren is very capable of taking over the business. When a scary situation arises Colt proves just how much he loves Lauren and gives up what he thought was his dream to be with her and live his real dream of running her family's ranch with her. Will Lauren let Colt help her run the family business or will she continue to push him away even though he is the only guy she will ever love? "The one girl whom I had fallen in love with in high school, who I fought for the last two years to push my feelings away from her, who I had spent countless night dreaming about, was finally in my arms. My plan from this moment on was to love her with everything I had. I was never letting Lauren go." "My sweet Lauren. I promise you...I'll spend forever holding you...even if it's only in my memories." I loved the connection between Colt and Lauren. Through good times and bad the were always there for each other. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. I loved catching up with the Luke, Libby, Will, Alex, Grace, Taylor, Maegan and all the parents from the Wanted series. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Colt & Lauren have had feelings since forever. Both fighting it for different reasons. When two people are ment to be together, nothing will stop it not even themselves. For Lauren, loving Colt is everything but she has also dreamed of running her Family Business. She thinks her Dad will not give her a chance since she is a Girl. All Colt wants is to do is help run the Reynolds Business along side Lauren. When they let their guard down and see what they both want is each other and have the same goals, Everything falls into place. When they give in and share the love they have for each other and their Hopes and Dreams of the future love wins. Colt has learned from the best, as how to swoon his Lady. His Dad, Gunner started in all with Ellie. Colt sweeps Lauren off her feet, love blooms and two people destined to be together show others what True Love looks like. Kelly hit it out the Football field with HOLDING YOU. Totally recommend this book, series or any other book by Kelly Elliott.

5292089 Nancy Metsch's review Apr 18, 15 · edit 5 of 5 stars Read from April 16 to 18, 2015 Kelly Elliott has written some of the most amazing books. But her wanted and A love wanted in Texas are my favorite's. Colt and Lauren's story was the best. ** No spoilers** This is going to be a hard review to write cause there is so much to say. BUT I received an Arc for an honest review. I will say this. This was the best HEA in this series
