    This is a new series for Kimberly Kincade in her Cross Creek books. This story was a wonderful read about second chances and secrets revealed. When the secrets are revealed can these two hearts heal and can these two people build a future together again. I loved this book 1 and am looking forward to the other books in this series.

    Crossing Hearts was sweet, sensual and such a fabulous second chance romance. The way the story evolved reminded me of honey slowly pouring out of a jar. It was beautifully slow and mesmerizing. While Emerson and Hunter met again, right from the start, we got little pieces of their past here and there. And we didn't fully learn all there was about Emerson and Hunter until further into the story. As someone who is more of a fast paced kinda girl, I found myself loving every single second of it! S

    He’d forgotten her once. He could damn well stick to forgetting her again.


    Emerson and Hunter dated in high school, and they were so serious that Hunter even proposed to her. She not only turned him down, but left the state for college, leaving him with his heart completely shattered. Twelve years later, Emerson left her high profile career, her NFL boyfriend and was back in their tiny town as a physical therapist. And Hunter was about to be her very first client!

    “I’m even wondering what if right now. Like what if”— he paused, but just long enough to fully face her on the bench, letting his opposite hand trail up the outside of her arm—“ you let me get closer to you.”


    While they tried their hardest to have a professional relationship, over time chemistry started to appear. Not only was their friendship still there, but their past was definitely not buried. Their old emotions were just begging to be released. It slowly started to come out in their physical therapy sessions, their little town's festival and it got to the point that there was no way they could ignore it any longer. The sexual tension between the two of them was so hot. And when they finally caved, ohhh the sex scenes were even hotter!

    “Hunter,”she whispered, her breath hot on his hand, and just like that, he was done waiting. He’d wanted his mouth on hers for twelve goddamn years. He might be light-years away from playing it safe right now, but he didn’t even want to wait another twelve seconds.

    He just wanted her.


    I found myself easily obsessed with Hunter. He was strong, caring, determined, a hard worker and such a good guy. As someone who usually prefers the bad boys, I was shocked how hard I fell for him. His feelings were so real, and I loved watching him struggle between caring for Emerson yet being guarded because of their past. And while I liked Emerson, it took me a little bit longer to warm up to her. You see, she could be so stubborn at times. She didn't want anyone to know her medical condition, let alone help her in any way. But over time, Hunter started to wiggle his way into her heart, and I found myself caring for Emerson too. I so wanted them to make it this time around, and I found myself rooting for their HEA!

    “Don’t worry. I’ve got you, Em. I won’t let go.”

    As he settled against the bedsheets with her nestled in close, Emerson realized that when she was in Hunter’s arms, she didn’t just feel normal.

    For the first time she could remember, she felt whole.


    In Crossing Hearts, you definitely feel all of the small town charm. And on top of that, I loved Hunter's family! His dad and two brothers worked with him on their farm, and I adored how true their family dynamics felt. Yeah they had some problems, and I can't wait to see how it plays out in the future books, but I loved learning about all of them. And I loved even more how Emerson fit so effortlessly in with Hunter's family. Scenes that just involved them eating dinner together, always felt like so much more.

    "I don’t think I realized it until now, but what I’ve been waiting for is you. It’s always been you. And this time, I’m not letting you slip away." - Hunter


    Crossing Hearts had a ton of character and soul. I absolutely adored this book, and I'm so excited to read the rest of Kimberly Kincaid's books. The next two books in this series are Hunter's brothers stories, and I can't wait to dive into them!

    Loved Hunter and Emerson and this book will definitely be one of my favorites for 2017 and will be reread.

    Emerson had to leave after high school, so that she could get away from the pressure her parents were putting her under, but did she really want to leave Hunter behind. Forward to 12 years later when Hunter walks into the Physical Therapist office and she is his doctor. Emerson finally opens up to Hunter about most things, but there is still one BIG secret that she is keeping, because she th

    Hunter Cross does not mind that he still lives in the same small town he grew up in and is working on the family farm. He actually enjoys it all, all that is except for the arguing between his two brothers. Thinking that was the worst of his worries was okay with him. That is until he hurt the shoulder he tore up in high school. After seeing the doctor she tells him he needs physical therapy and that she has just hired someone new. That person is the last person he thought he would ever see agai ...more

    I'm actually kind of happy I picked this audio book on my Kindle Account the other day. Yes, it took me less than a day to listen to it. I was bored at work guys - I need my entertainment!

    Crossing Hearts is a wonderful dual POV from Emerson Montgomery and Hunter Cross. Emerson was the love of Hunter's life - until she said no to his proposal and walked away. Well, it's been twelve years since then and guess who's back in town? EMERSON PEOPLE!

    Of course I started

    **4-4.5 stars** Great start to this new series from Kimberly Kincaid. I loved this second chance romance story and I'm very much looking forward to the future books in the series. Emerson and Hunter had me rooting for them from the very beginning. Kimberly always brings the chemistry, heat and heartfelt scenes with her characters. That's why she's one of my favorites for contemporary romances.
