Also in this series: Can't Help Falling in Love
He’s the bad boy quarterback, one scandal away from being traded.
She’s the squeaky-clean pop star with a morality clause hanging around her neck.
And they can’t keep their hands off each other.
Cassian Ellis fell in love with Gigi Cavanaugh when he was fourteen. But he couldn’t have her. His mentor — her dad — promised to take him out of detention and all the way to the pros. The price: stay away from his daughter.
But Gigi was embedded in his soul — there was no distancing himself from her. And, senior year in high school, in a moment of desperation when he couldn’t take all the want and love and lust, he ended things in the worst way possible.
Now, nine years later, he’s forced to do charity work to clean up his party boy image.
And guess who’s working right alongside him?
Gigi can't believe her bad luck. She's on the same Dreams Come True tour as Cassian Ellis. And, with the press recording their every move, she has to pretend to like the man who tore out her heart and stomped all over it.
But Cassian couldn’t be happier since he never stopped loving her. And he’s determined to win her back. Only, someone’s leaking photographs, and headlines about the bad boy quarterback corrupting the squeaky-clean pop star could sink both their dreams.
Can their love overcome all the world has put between them?
It Was Always You by Erika Kelly was a second chance romance full of angst, emotional and undeniable chemistry. Cassian Ellis and Gigi Cavanaugh were best friends in high school and were inseparable. But they each wanted more, however, they kept their feelings hidden. Until Gigi couldn’t stand it anymore and put it all out there, only to have her heart broken in the worst way possible. Now nine years later they are face-to-face again and must play nice.
My heart just broke for Cassian and Gigi. Gigi meant everything to Cassian, but her father did so much for him and the only thing he asked for in return was for him to stay away from his daughter. But for nine years they both floundered and struggled. Now they both have everything on the line and neither can lose. But as the spend time together and reconnect, old feelings can’t be hidden. But is it too late for them?
I found myself devouring It Was Always You by Erika Kelly. I loved the story so much, even as it was frustrating at times. Their journey was definitely not an easy one, but you could feel their love underneath everything else that stood in their way. Can love overcome what stands in their way?
