Crossing the Line by Kimberly Kincaid

Cocky farmer Eli Cross plays twice as hard as he works. When his latest stunt drums up a heap of negative PR for the family farm, he grudgingly agrees to play host to an ambitious New York City photographer. Her feature on Cross Creek could be just the ticket to show the country what the Cross brothers do best… which is more problem than solution for Eli.

Scarlett Edwards-Stewart has photographed everything from end zones to war zones. She’s confident she can ace this one little story to help her best friend’s failing magazine. At least, she would be if her super-sexy host wasn’t so tight lipped. But the more Scarlett works with Eli, the more she discovers that he’s not who he seems. Can his secret bring them closer together? Or will it be the very thing that tears them apart?

This is the second book in the series, and if you read Crossing Hearts, you will be very happy to know that it is Eli's turn to get his story and all being well happily ever after, too.

When we met the Cross Creek clan last time around, we found Hunter to be a man who worked hard on his family farm and when injured, he was super unhappy. Well, his younger brother Eli is not so wedded to farm life, and has secretly been planning for a different future... if only he could be honest with his family. The arrival of a sexy photographer from New York and the need to win a foolish bet work together to force his hand. As the story unfolds, we get an insight into farming life, and into the thinking of a couple who have no memory of maternal love. It was fun to have Scarlett find out how good at being romantic Eli turned out to be – I did wish we had seen something of their future and her taking charge, but maybe that will be mentioned in future installments.

A big family secret is revealed towards the end of the book, which will be an interesting feature in the next book, as must surely be the recently widowed Kate. I love it when there are hints of what is to come!

Eli Cross is trying fit in, both with his family and on his family's farm. He loves the farm but he knows he doesn't belong there full time. His love of writing exceeds his love of the land, so what's holding him back from fulfilling his dream? His love for his family.

Scarlet Edwards-Stewart is a modern day gypsy. She’s an exceptional photographer with a base in New York, but she's on assignment more often than not. Taking a month-long shoot in the hinterlands of South Carolina will be the longest she's been in one spot in a very long time; however, as a favor for a friend, she's more than willing to tackle the assignment.

As Scarlet and Eli work together to promote Cross Creek Farms, their friendship grows into something more with each learning to appreciate the strengths of the other.

The twist at end gives the reader an added hook into the rest of the series.

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.
