Built to Blast by Elisabeth Grace Blog Tour: Excerpt

BUILT TO LAST is available now – add it to your Goodreads list here!


At seventeen, the small town of Saltwater Springs had been everything to Scarlett Devereaux—as had her boyfriend Luke. Never had she imagined she’d have to leave them both behind—until the night that changed everything. A decade after skipping town Scarlett returns to start over in the only place that ever really felt like home. But when nothing goes as planned, she’s forced to turn to Luke for help. 

With a drunk for a dad and a mom making pocket change at the local diner, no one ever thought Luke Garrity would amount to anything. After building a successful contracting business he’s proven everyone wrong professionally, but things in his personal life are upside down. Making it the exact wrong time for Scarlett to return to Saltwater Springs. 

With a history of devastation and heartbreak between them can Scarlett and Luke make amends, or will secrets from the past threaten the foundation of Scarlett’s new life? Were Luke and Scarlett really built to last?

“It means that after the way you left, I can’t believe you have the nerve to act like I’ve done something wrong. You’re the one who asked me to come here today.”

“I didn’t know it was going to be you!”

“Yet here I am, and you still can’t stand the sight of me. Even after a decade.” He exhaled a frustrated breath. “And I still don’t know why.”

Hurt flashed in her eyes, though he couldn’t imagine why. She removed herself from his hold and took a step back. His hands instantly felt empty from the loss. “Please leave. Now,” she whispered.

Luke growled—for probably the first time in his life. “No problem. I’ve got somewhere I’ve gotta be and she won’t be happy if I’m late. Have a nice life.”

He tore out of the store, almost ripping the door from its hinges, and began stalking down the street. He was way too riled up to drive right now. He breathed in deeply as he passed the idyllic storefronts, hoping the cool autumn air would help to clear his mind.

Infuriating woman. What the hell was she doing back in Saltwater Springs?

If she was opening a shop in town, it seemed she was planning to stick around. Damn it.

He’d been doing fine without the biggest loss and temptation of his life strolling around the same streets as him.

Luke had always known in his gut that this day would come—the day he was forced to confront his unresolved feelings for this woman. He just hadn’t expected it to be during such a tumultuous time in his life.
