Texas gal Greer Maddox is a talented artist. But she's lost, restlessly jumping from one project to the next, trying to find something that will satisfy her. That satisfaction eludes her until the day leather tooler Alejandro Villanueva strolls into town looking like ten kinds of sexy trouble. 

After surviving his dark and dangerous past, all Alex wants is a quiet future. Alone, where his former life and mistakes can’t hurt anyone else. Even casually screwing around with a girl next door like Greer—whose dulce de leche voice and curvy body make him sweat—is a bad idea. But when she gets involved in his attempts to win the Prophecy Boot Company’s tooling contract, waving adios is the last thing on his mind.
Their attraction flares hot and undeniable. He wants her, and even knowing he shouldn’t have her can’t stop him from indulging the temptation she offers. But when his past comes calling, he is forced to choose between hiding from his sins, or saving the woman he loves.

  • Hot and Sexy!

    By Amy - So Many Reads
    I have so much love for A Passion to Pursue by Kelsey Browning it is hard to put into words. This is the second book in her Prophecy of Love series and Browning develops some amazing characters in Alex and Greer. There is so much depth in these characters and at the end of the story I found myself looking back how much they have grown and I have learned about them. The plot for in this story was quite interesting and really shaped Alex and Greer’s lives and relationship very well. In A Passion to Pursue, we meet Alex, the new boy in town looking for a job with Prophecy Boot Company. We know Greer as the sister to Cal from A Love To Last. Greer is a bit free and wild always looking for the a way to make a difference and she sees something in Alex that can help her get there. Of course, she finds him hot as hell, too, which doesn’t hurt. Alex follows the dollar signs to Prophecy, Texas from Montana. While he grew up in Texas, some unfortunate situations in his life caused him to flee as far away as possible. Now he is back, trying to lay low, make some cash but finds himself at the center of Greer’s attention. Quite an amusing situation. From the very beginning of the story you realize A Passion To Pursue is about two people finding themselves in each other. Finding their fit, their passion for what they want to do with their lives and how they can impact the community for Prophecy. The dialogue between Alex and Greer is phenomenal and was the highlight of the book for me. Their intimate scenes were not only very hot and filled with sizzling passion, but also humorous at times due to the dialogue that takes place. I really enjoyed how open Greer was with her feelings and Alex. She holds no grudges for arguments and Alex doesn’t always know what to do with Greer. I love her for it! While A Passion To Pursue in general is an upbeat, positive romance, it can pack a punch emotionally. You will find yourself happy, sad, mad, turned on and blissfully satisfied at the end. You get it all. The ending to the story has quite a twist to it and is so perfect and feels just like the frosting on top of a delicious cake. Browning does a wonderful job with A Passion to Pursue and I can’t imagine Alex and Greer’s story playing out any more perfectly. I am also starting to really enjoy the whole prophecy boots premise of the series. I have never worn cowboy boots in my life but I would love some custom made ones now. If you are looking for your next contemporary romance story, give A Passion To Pursue a try.
  • Pursue this wonderful book!

    By mlawriter
    A Passion to Pursue is the second book in the Prophecy of Love Series by Kelsey Browning. This book can stand alone, but you would definitely appreciate the background by reading the first one. Greer Maddox and Alejandro (Alex) Villanueva are attracted to each other at their first meeting. Greer is trying to find herself after learning that she will not be the next Prophecy boot maker. She is a talented artist but hasn't found a craft she can totally immerse herself into. Alex is searching as well. He is trying to right a wrong which has haunted him for many years. Greer and Alex meet when Alex is applying to be a leather tooler for Prophecy Boot Company. Alex has secrets. Greer has ulterior motives. There is family drama on both sides and there is the mystery of the boots. These are the elements for a wonderfully woven story that will keep the reader turning page after page until the conclusion. This book is a romance so it is inevitable that Greer and Alex will find their happily ever after, but this story is much more than this. It is aptly titled because each of these characters is finding their own passion as well as each other's. This Five Star Romance is hot and steamy; exciting and intriguing. And if you believe in a little magic will be more than satisfying when you get to the end. I received a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
  • My new favorite!

    By GreyGirl50
    This series is a new favorite of mine because of a crazy plot twist that is revealed in book one and will blow your mind in a really great way as this second book progresses. Kelsey's writing is witty and smart and the sexual chemistry between Greer and Alex is electric (and quite distracting in a very good way). Unfortunately, as much as Greer wants a future with Alex, his guilty conscience prevents any relationship between them, until Greer is finally able to break down the emotional walls Alex has built to conceal his pain. Shockingly, the appearance of yet another last minute plot twist is sure to drive me crazy until the next book is released! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
