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 never planned to return to the small town of Millhaven where she grew up. But circumstances in her life chose otherwise. She’s been gone twelve years and had a lucrative job she loved as a physical therapist for a pro-football team. But after receiving the life altering n ...more
I am beyond thrilled to begin the Cross Creek series with Crossing Hearts. The rugged, sexy Cross brothers like to work hard, play hard, and lucky us--we get to see them fall hard :) If you like small town charm mixed with big time sizzle, salt-of-the-earth heroes and feisty, fun heroines, you're in the right place.
Grab a seat in your favorite reading spot, and get ready to visit Cross Creek! See you there!
B club listen. I have mixed feelings about it.
It was a feel good book, with a HEA. So I can’t help but like that.
Hunter is a character I liked and I didn’t. I think I felt like the woe is me kind of fella, he does get better as the book goes along.
Emerson, I liked her spunk and her determination but I have to say I didn’t like that she fought soooooooo hard to hide. I mean if that had been a patient of hers she would have put her foot down and t ...more
Emerson Montgomery has returned to her hometown of Millhaven after vowing never to return. She's left behind her prestigious job as a physical therapist to the Las Vegas Viking football team and her star running back boyfriend Lance Devlin. Emerson has returned to her hometown and her overbearing parents because she is sick, her exact diagnosis is not revealed for a while so I won't spoiler it, but she doesn't want anyone to know. Her rationale is that her parents already ...more
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 ...more
ARC received from: Netgalley
Trope: Reconciliation romance
One-Sentence Summary: Small town reconciliation romance
Review: When I first saw a that there was a new release for Kimberly Kincaid I was filled with a mix of emotions - excitement and then disappointment that it wasn't a new addition in her Rescue Squad series and then excitement again as I realised that hopefully this means that she has two series on the go and therefore multiple books for me to look forwar ...more
Hunter Cross—farmer extraordinaire—captured my imagination from the start and as foreign as this farming thing is to me, he’s vividly drawn enough that his bond to the farm and family cannot be disputed even as he struggles with an own injury and problems that threaten to weigh him down. An old flame returns though, for reasons that she will not ...more
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 ...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 ...more
And Emerson is back in town. Back in the small town she never wanted to return to. But she needs a place to start over, a place where she’s comfortable, and there’s really no place like home.
And th ...more
Hunter and Emerson, it's a second chance romance. Emerson never wanted to come home but being recently diagnosed with MS really limits her options the only person willing to take her on and work with her schedule was her hometown's only physician who was looking to expand her practice to physical therapy. She knew eventually talking to her parents was inevitable but also she knew she would run across Hunter at some point, she just didn't expect him to be her first patient. The only o ...more

Of their adventures and their love and losses. Written by newest author, Kimberly Kincaid. Loving this most wonderful story set in Virginia.
Whilst brothers, Hunter and Owen worked on on stacking the bales of hay. These brothers were both strong and knew what they were doing. Hunter himse ...more

Hunter Cross and Emerson were high school lovers. Hunter proposed, Emerson said no and fled town. Neither thought they'd ever see each other again. Hunter stayed working on Cross Farms all 12 years and loved it and the small town he lived in. Emerson worked as a physical therapist for the Las Vegas Lightning football team (fictional) and was dating one of the star players. Something happe ...more
This is more of a 2.5 star read for me than a 3 star one. I felt it was just a blah type book. I had no motivation to continue reading it, as I wasn't invested in the characters or the plot line at all. Not even the secondary characters co ...more
The always amazing Kimberly Kincaid kicks off a new small town series with Crossing Hearts and does so with a book that will worm its way into the heart of every reader who reads it for the simple reason that it’s so beautifully written.
Yes, I admit to being totally biased when it comes to this authors writing. I have been there from the start and watched as she has settled into her writing mojo and written book after book that has gone straight to my keeper ...more
Two words describe this book so far: Anti Climactic. I'm disappointed because I was really looking forward to reading this one because that cover is attractive! Like a better looking Ryan Gosling.
The synopsis tried to be vague about hidden secrets but then blatantly tells you the heroine has Multiple Sclerosis. So... that's it. She's got a debilitating disease, her parents don't know and there's a second chance element that just fizzled after the halfway mark. No push and pull between ...more
Hunter Cross comes face to face with the last person he'd ever think of seeing again in Millhaven.
Emerson Montgomery was his everything.
It's been 12 years. What the heck was she doing back in the town she couldn't wait to leave?
Hunters whole life is the farm he grew up on. Him and his two brothers, and there father. Now he has to deal with seeing Eme ...more
Small town romance that will take your heart in and not let go. Packed full of emotions, that will bring happy and sad tears to your eyes. I'm loving the Cross family, three strong sexy boys raised by their father. Emerson has a bi ...more
Crossing Hearts largest character is the emotions. Ms. Kincaid had my mind spinning. Hunter is a man of few words, but an abundance of heart. Emerson is a woman with secrets and the baggage that goes along with them. There's a ton of Kleenex involved as readers navigate the pain, acceptance and healing on the road to a second chance. Life happens to everyone. It's not always fair, yet every moment is precious and enlightening. In order to apprec ...more
