Crossing Hearts by Kimberly Kincaid
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Crossing Hearts reconnects a hot farmer whose arm needs therapy with a beautiful therapist who just happens to need a patient for her new practice.
Hunter has just suffered an injury to his arm while baling hay on his family farm. This puts him out of options to work the farm while needing to mend. When he finally makes it to see the local doc, she recommends he begin physical therapy with her new hire. Walking into the PT office, he is knocked off kilter again as he comes face to face with the one gal that basically skipped town when he proposed to her all those years ago.
Emerson was basically forced back to her small hometown as she had run out of employment options elsewhere. She was diagnosed with a debilitating disease and once she confided in her famous big town boyfriend, the dirtbag dumped her. And when her big town dream job became too difficult, she headed home looking to pick up the pieces with a low intensity small town practice.
As Hunter works out with Emerson to get the bum arm back in shape, they begin to rekindle their friendship, which you guessed it, rekindles all the coupling sexy times. Emerson struggles with lots of internal head drama involving all the peeps in her circle. She was keeping her diagnosis from her new boss, parents, friends, and frenemies. It got a little too angsty for me, but I was relieved when she confessed it to Hunter, and he did not even blink – she was still his “one”.
Crossing Hearts is being re-released by Kimberly Kincaid under her new indie publishing company and it is book #1 of her Cross Creek series. I am assuming some of the side stories involving the tension between Hunter’s brothers were set up for the next books in the series. Maybe one will be a love interest for Emerson’s BFF Daisy? Crossing Hearts is a charming small town second chance contemporary romance with a side of medical drama that our authorette is so excellent at in her storytelling.
I was given an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
