Elena Matthews - Look After Us (Look After You #2.5 - Novella)

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Susan

This is the novella of Ava and Ashton's story.

This cannot be read as a standalone. You must read Look After You first.

Coming late summer!

***

The road to true love isn’t always easy… but through all the heartache, Ava and Ashton have somehow made it through—coming out of the other end even stronger.

Madly in love and engaged to be married, Ava is finally getting her happy ever after.

But it seems Ashton’s brother, Tyler, will beat Ashton down the aisle. When he decides to tie the knot, he asks Ashton to be his best man. Not one to miss his baby brother get married, he and Ava fly to Texas to join in the festivities.

Everything is perfect.

Until Ashton’s past threatens to destroy everything.

Ava’s jealousy rears its ugly head as Ashton’s ex-girlfriend hangs on his every word. Even though she knows Ashton loves her, she can’t help but feel insecure, especially since she’s convinced that Ashton’s first love is karma in disguise, waiting to take her happiness away.

As tempers flare and tears fall, Ava knows she’s overreacting.
Or is she?

Wow...I think this has been my most anticipated read of the summer and I think Elena Matthews may have got bored of me chasing her for this hahaha. After all the anticipation, this book did not disappoint me in the least, it excelled all my expectations.

The novella focuses on Ashton and Ava's break away to Texas for Ashton's brothers upcoming wedding.

------------------------------
I want to protect you, cherish you, love you, look after you until my last dying breath.
------------------------------

Even very early on, the steam meter on this novella....well, let's just say there is the hottest mile high club scene ever!

------------------------------
"I work hard to contain the euphoria that rips through me. But it's hard when every touch is more sensitive...every thrust is more exhilarating...when every subtle kiss has enough power to light up an entire city...
------------------------------

Ava officially meets the family and quickly becomes a part of it and is astounded at the love and acceptance from everyone.

Ashton's ability to take Ava's mind off her fear of flying is just selfless ;)

But besides from Ashton's parents and siblings, Ava would meet another blast from his past that would bring her insecurities crashing around her. Despite Ashton's persistence, she would worry for the duration of her stay that she would get hurt.

But Ashton knows what he has. He wouldn't hurt our beautiful Ava after all they have been through?

------------------------------
Ashton:
I'm supposed to be the person in her life who protects her...who looks after her, but it seems even I'm not immune to breaking her beautiful, fragile heart.
------------------------------

A truly emotive, sexy and awe inspiring read that goes to show that happiness can be found in the strangest of places and oddest of times. Ashton and Ava are proof of that and their story is a brilliant one I never tire of reading. This book gave me a lot of closure on their story and genuinely warmed my heart. I can't recommend enough!

------------------------------
Ashton is not only my strength, he's my hero, soul mate and my best friend too, and no matter what life throws at us next, I know as long as I have him by my side, I can survive anything.
