He’s only a friend. 
Those words had haunted him from the moment Jessie James had heard them muttered from the one girl, above all others, that he thought had his back. 
Sixteen years later, he still feels those words like a brand on his soul. 
Lucky for him he has a son to take care of, a full-time job that demands every single second of the day, and not a single moment to spare for the likes of a woman that won’t stand up for him when he needs her the most. 
He’s only a friend. 
The words had slipped out of Ellen’s mouth, and before she could recall them or better yet, explain, Jesse is gone from her life for good, taking her heart with him. 
She tries to find her way out of the pit of despair, but not one single person, no matter how much she tries, can fill the void that he left in his wake. Time heals all wounds. Or at least that is how the saying goes. It’s a crock of crap, though.
Sixteen years pass when Jessie and Ellen see each other again without the influence of the town and bad memories surrounding them, and it’s as if not a single day has passed. 
Ellen knows the instant that her eyes see her old love that she’s still just as much in love with him today as she was all those years ago. The problem is that Jesse wants nothing to do with her. Or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself.

5 of 5 Hearts 

Each and every book in the Dixie Warden Rejects MC builds off the last book. You get a glimpse of what the other couple was up to while you are seeing it from the new couple's perspective. I love how some of the timeline at the beginning of each book overlap.

 Every time I finish a book in this series, I swear it is my favorite. This book was no exception. Lani Lynn Vale does such a great job at wrapping her readers up in this nice little web of awesomeness. You cannot put her books down. You are utterly obsessed until you read that very last line and then you are mad you are finished because the next book is not released yet.  I am always left needing more!

My favorite line in this book.
"I hate the new you. I miss the old you."

Once you read this story you will know what a powerful line such few words can hold.
Ellen and Jessie's book pulled on my heart strings from the very beginning. This book was extremely emotional. The amount of angst and drama killed my heart. I shared Ellen and Jessie's frustration. I celebrated with them the moment they both finally told the other how they felt. Lord! I wanted to cry happy tears and hurt everyone who had kept them apart.

Jessie's son Linc was one of my favorite kiddos I have ever read in a story. He was his father's rock and an all-around good kid. He wanted the best for the ones he loved and would sacrifice anything for them. He kept true to a kid his age and how they would feel.

Jessie's ex is a real piece of work that kept interfering like a bad penny.  This entire book I was wishing bad things upon her. The heartache she gave everyone was enough to dub her most hated villain so far, this year.

This book comes highly recommended if you are looking for an MC book with emotion and real-life situations. You cannot help to fall for Ellen and Jessie's love story.
