Crossing Hearts (Cross Creek #1) by Kimberly Kincaid



Goodreads Review



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?


Thank God, I finished it. I read Skin Deep by Kimberly Kincaid and loved every single moment. So, I was wandering along my merry way on Netgalley and saw this book and that well why not. The first book you read by her was pretty awesome but in all honesty? This not so much.
Crossing Hearts is long winded. I am a fan of small town romances but this just didn’t hit the usual spot like a small town romance does. Second chance romances are a hit and miss with me anyway.
The writing was good but not a lot happened it did pick up at the end though so there is that or maybe it was because I saw the light at the end of the tunnel and finished it. But fifty pages less maybe would have been better.
I was up for reading about a heroine with a disability and although this plays a vital part in the story her emotions in trying to except the illness that she has drove me up the bloody wall. There is a difference between being stubborn and putting your own health on the line so that no one realizes that you are sick.
Hunter Cross is one of the most patient Heroes ever. If I was him I would have cut my losses but love can make you blind. The one thing that is vital that would have had a great impact on the book is that if Emerson hadn’t become sick then she wouldn’t have moved back home which also means that Emerson and Hunter wouldn’t have crossed paths and never would have gotten back together. So on top of everything else this is tricky.
The reasons for Emerson leaving where not understandable. But I guess it adds some depth to the plot.
I don’t think that I will continue with the series.
