Publisher's Summary

Things I never planned on happening in my life: getting married, being a mother to a house full of kids, and returning to my small hometown in Texas.

I especially never planned on seeing Tucker Monroe again. Sexy smile. Country charm. A man and a life I left behind for a reason. 

The only plan I had for myself was my career. My career as a buyer for one of the largest high-end department stores was the only commitment for which I had time. The only one I was willing to make. 

Now, being left with no choice but to return to my hometown, I'm finding it hard to remember why I left in the first place. Because all that's on my mind is Tucker. He is just as sexy. Just as charming. Just as dangerous as he used to be....

Lottie

This is the first book by Melissa Ellen I have devoured and I was not disappointed. This is a cute but angst filled second chance romance. I enjoyed it.
Narration was good.

Great characters

A small town and a second chance with the added bonus of a sexy Southern drawl. Redeeming Lottie is a pretty quick listen, and it's got a good balance of sweet and sexy. I loved Tucker almost immediately, but Lottie was a little harder to warm up to. She wants nothing to do with a commitment, but she does a pretty poor job of proving it, and it results in her coming off as kind of wishy-washy at first. Nevertheless, I did warm up to her, and it didn't take long before I was firmly in camp Tucker and Lottie, rooting for their happy ever after.
This is the beginning of a series, and Billingsley may be a small town, but it's loaded with interesting and engaging characters that I definitely want more of. I love a small-town romance, so this series is right up my alley, and I'll be interested to see who's next.
I had the pleasure of listening to this one, and Erin Coker and Ski do an excellent job with the narration. Honestly, I don't think Melissa Ellen could've chosen any better for Tucker and Lottie. They breathe life into these characters and both voices add that little something extra that I always hope for in an audiobook.

Oh boy

The story was good but the narrators were horrible! Especially the male narrator, good lord, the last few chapters when the drama ramped up, the narration got horrifically BAD!

Small town romance at its best

Melissa Ellen is a new author to me but as I love small town romance I was excited when I got the chance to listen to Redeeming Lottie, this seconded chance romance was everything I expected and so much more, I was engrossed and captivated from the minute I put on my headphones and there was no switching of until I had heard the final words. Erin Coker and Ski did a great job of bringing this story and the characters to life and I will certainly be looking at other works they have narrated as well as other books written by Ms Ellen.
Lottie left Tucker and her home town 12 years ago but she unexpectedly finds herself back at her family home when she decides it’s time for the property to be sold. Lottie wasn’t meant to spend a lot of time there she was meant to be in and out but her unresolved issues with Tucker keep her from walking away, will the timing be right this time around or will the past and the life choices they have both made be to difficult to overcome....
This book ticked all my boxes, I smiled, I swooned and I shed a tear as I fell in love with Ms Ellen’s writing, the main characters and the residents of this small town. Loved everything about this listen and I’m looking forward to reading or listening to more from this very talented author.

Lottie and Tucker!

Lottie and Tucker were not only best friends and high school sweethearts, but Tuck was her champion and he was there to support her through all the ups and downs of her life. Lottie has seen firsthand the destruction that love can cause so after school she left Tuck and their hometown to pursue her dreams in Seattle.

Twelve years later Lottie is back in her hometown to settle her mother’s estate and from the first time that they see each other again the chemistry and connection between them is stronger than ever. Tuck was devastated when she left town over a decade ago and that is a pain he doesn’t want to repeat but when she needs help with her farm he can’t walk away.

This is a second chance at love story between two people who have always belonged together. Tuck never wavered in his belief that she was his destiny and he gave her the time and space she needed to realize it as well. I thought that the narrators did a great job with both the humor and emotion of the story.

If you're looking for a sweet story, this is it.

I listened to the audio version of Redeeming Lottie. It was a quick, fun, second chance romance. The narrators did a good job of bringing the small-town story to life. This was my first Melissa Ellen book. I enjoyed the characters. They made me a laugh and sometimes they frustrated the heck out of me. If you're looking for a sweet story, this is it.

Enjoyable

Recently I have found myself gravitating to small town romances, add in that this is a second chance at love story and it was a win/win for me. Melissa Ellen is a relatively new author to me and I found this story to be as entertaining. Narrated by Erin Coker and Ski, both did an admirable job bringing Lottie and Tucker’s story to life.

Having left behind Tucker and her small town 12 year ago, Lottie finds herself back home again, but hopefully not for long. It is obvious that they have unresolved feelings, the question is should they explore what sizzles between them and take a chance or ignore the attraction?
This was a sweet, at times frustrating story, and there were times when my heart broke for the characters but I was left with a smile on my face.

Had my attention at the beginning....

This story had me at the beginning but it went flat as the story progressed. She left the love of her life for twelve years and the reason she left was weak. After they got together, it was just sex. I didn't like the main characters and lost interest after two hours into the story. The performance got me through the end.

Small town second chance

This is an ARC review. All opinions are solely my own.

Redeeming Lottie by Melissa Ellen is the first book of the Billingsley series. I had never read this author but there is nothing I love more than a series that follows friends and family. I can't wait to read or listen to the rest of this series.

This audiobook is narrated by Erin Coker and Ski. Their voices are adaptable and allowed them to animate different characters and accents. Overall, I enjoyed their performances.

Lottie has left small town living to follow her dream of fashion. She has to return home and thinks it will be a quick trip and she'll be able to get back to her life in the city. Of course this gives her a chance to run into her first love. Sparks fly. Miscommunications happen. People interfere.

This book was sweet and heartbreaking, infuriating and endearing. Excuse me while I go read the rest of this series.
