Crossing Hearts by Kimberly Kincaid

Hunter Cross has no regrets. Having left his football prospects behind the day he graduated high school, he’s happy to carry out his legacy on his family’s farm in the foothills of the Shenandoah. But when a shoulder injury puts him face-to-face with the high school sweetheart who abandoned town—and him—twelve years ago, Hunter’s simple life gets a lot more complicated.

Emerson Montgomery has secrets. Refusing to divulge why she left her job as a hotshot physical therapist for a pro football team, she struggles to readjust to life in the hometown she left behind. The more time she spends with Hunter, the more Emerson finds herself wanting to trust him with the diagnosis of MS that has turned her world upside down.

But revealing secrets comes with a price. Can Hunter and Emerson rekindle their past love? Or will the realities of the present—and the trust that goes with them—burn that bridge for good?

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
A second chance at romance without the usual recriminations and hard feelings, which is unique in and of itself.

Both Hunter and Emerson have regrets about the past, but they do not let those cloud their current friendship. Hunter knows that Emerson is being less than truthful with him about something, but he doesn't stew about it or make it a big issue. When Emerson finally trusts him enough to tell him, he is overjoyed that that the trust they once shared is back.

I truly enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more about the Cross family.

This is the first in a new series, and I can say that I am looking forward to reading more. The scene is set for this story, but with enough detail of the place and the people to imagine where future interest could lie.

Hunter is a good man, who chose to be selfless back when he and Emerson first got together, and continues in that vein with his family now. So when he needs Emerson to get him back to fitness, he starts to question just how strong he can be in the face of the one who got away.

Emerson has been leading a glamorous life as a PT to a leading sports team, and dating a player. However, her life has been turned upside down, and she has broken her promise to herself to never return to her hometown. Not only does Hunter live there, but also her overbearing and disappointed parents. As the reader sees her settle back in, but still keep her secrets, the inevitability of problems ahead is obvious, but are revealed in a really good way.

The chemistry between these two is like an intense, slow burn. Because we get both sides of the story, it smoulders almost immediately, but is fueled over the whole of Hunter's recovery. As they get to understand each other better, the whole story needs to come out before they can really move forward – and we definitely want them to!

Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet. When she’s not sitting cross-legged in an ancient desk chair that she calls “the Pleather Bomber,” she can be found practicing crazy amounts of yoga, whipping up everything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a USA Today bestselling author and a 2016 and 2015 RWA RITA finalist who lives (and writes!) by the mantra “Food is love.” She resides in Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.
