❤ SYNOPSIS ❤
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?

❤ MY REVIEW ❤
by Kimberly Kincaid
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
CROSSING HEARTS begins Kimberly Kincaid’s new series about three brothers who work together along with their father to run the family farm, Cross Creek. Crossing Hearts is the middle brother, Hunter’s story, and is all about the second chance he has with the woman he gave his heart to back in high school, Emerson Montgomery.
Ms Kincaid tells this sweet love story in a way that reminds me of a Hallmark movie… well, the R-rated version, because there are some steamy parts. Even so, it’s more about the small town feel, the slow pace and southern charm that makes you want to sit back and enjoy the whole story because you know the ending is going to make your heart just sigh. There’s quite a bit of drama to get through, before these two find their way to admitting they are in love, that they’ve always loved each other, but the HEA makes for a glorious ending.

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 known as “The Pleather Bomber”, she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a USA Today best-selling author and 2016 and 2015 RWA RITA finalist who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. She resides in Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.
