Strong Enough Kindle Edition
Dirk Littlewood had the world at his feet and a life he claimed to love. He was a world-champion bull rider with plenty of women to keep his nights busy and make his inner loneliness nothing but a delusion.
Dirk’s life was exactly how he wanted it.
Until it wasn’t.
The moment Merit Eden showed back up in Hamilton, Montana, everything was turned upside down. Life changed immediately and then tragedy struck.
Merit was the only woman who could bring Dirk to his knees—and the only woman who could heal his broken past. If only he’d let her in, they could heal each other in the process.
The only thing left for Dirk to do was figure out how to not only forgive himself, but accept forgiveness from the only woman he had ever truly loved…if only he was strong enough to withstand the heartbreak.

I always knew there was an underlying sadness in Dirk’s heart, but wasn’t ever sure exactly what it was. We’ve had hints thrown at us within the previous books in the series, but Dirk isn’t one to necessarily share his feelings so to finally get to know who he was underneath his gruff exterior was a true joy. This man has a heart the size of Montana even if he doesn’t want to admit it. And when it comes to Merit, he’ll do just about anything to rectify their past.
I loved how Merit loved her family and wasn’t making it easy for Dirk. She’s a woman that knows her worth and what she needs in a relationship with and because he hurt her so deeply all those years ago, she’s making him work for that second chance.
The way these two acted around each other when they saw each other when Dirk came home for a little break, I knew the fireworks were still there for them and with the help of others, especially Blayze, they’re forced to be in each other’s presence and it was just a matter of time for them to really admit how they feel and what it would take for them to have the love they both wanted and needed from each other.
I fell in love with how much Dirk was willing to do to have Merit not only as his best friend again, but to be his forever. He’s a man on a mission and he slowly but surely gets Merit to trust him again in every way possible. Their connection is as strong if not stronger than it was ten years ago, but there’s some bumps in the road to their forever.
Ms. Elliott has ended this series so beautifully bringing everything full circle not only for Dirk and Merit but the entire Shaw family. There were moments I laughed and cried and swooned. I’ve left a piece of my heart in Montana, and I’m secretly hoping we’re going to get to visit this great state and amazing family sometime in the future!!
I've been waiting for Dirk's book. I always loved his character. The sweet caring guy certainly fought his feelings for Merit.
Dirk and Merit were best friends growing up, then one night, one wrong word cost them that friendship. They were both young, didn't- couldn't figure out what they were feeling, both ran. Merit is finally home for good, helping run the family farm. Dirk is home from the bull riding circuit and after seeing Merit on New Year's eve he was going to make sure they talk things out.
With arguing and not the best communication between the two, they go through some deeply emotional things. I love the chemistry and easy banter. It wa0s great seeing the whole shaw family again, but sad this is the end. Grabthi book, Kelly Elliot doesn't disappoint! *****
Dirk, Dirk, Dirk we finally get to see his story with Merit and I was not disappointed. It was interesting reading and learning more about the different perspectives on Kaci and how manipulative and possessive she could be in past.
Dirk and Merit’s story was interesting and had me wondering how things would end. I loved Merit as a character and was wishing her the best from the beginning. The amount of loyalty and dedication that she had to her loved ones was beautiful. Most of all I’m glad in the book that Merit knew her worth as a person, and was willing to admit her mistakes if the were made.
Dirk’s sister from the first book was not mentioned and I’m not sure why considering the events that happened in this last book. Overall this was a good end to this series and I’m glad for the chance to read this book.
