When I returned to Poplar Falls six years ago, I’d given up on love.

I’d made the mistake of marrying the sexy rebel right out of high school. He’d ended up in jail. I’d ended up pregnant. With a baby on the way, I decided to give up my wild, impulsive ways. All I wanted was a family and to watch my sweet son grow up, happy, and healthy.

Then Myer Wilson keeps showing up in

I don’t want to put her fire out. I want to sit back and enjoy the burn.

Stone Hearts was exactly the sugary sweet, yet emotional, small town romance I needed. I’ve been on the struggle bus with reading so far this year and Dallas and Myer’s story definitely kicked me out of my funk. A chance at complete happiness for Dallas and her sweet little boy, and Myer finally getting the girl he’s been falling in love with. I love how their love is so clear to anyone who sees them, but not to Dallas. This

Sweet | Small Town | Friends-to-Lovers Romance

It’s truly magical when you find a new author who writes stories that touch you deep in your heart. For me, one of those authors is Amber Kelly. I stumbled upon her first book in this series RUSTIC HEARTS last year when I was looking for new books in the kindle unlimited program. Seeing the cover for Rustic Hearts is what first caught my attention. Then I read the blurb, got chills, and

3.5 stars!

This is a cute little story. A small-town, single parent, friends-to-lovers romance, it is the second book in the Poplar Falls series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Dallas grew up in the small town of Poplar Falls. She married her high school sweetheart right after graduation, but ended up pregnant and alone when he was sent to jail. Now she’s back on her family’s ranch and raising her adorable six year old with the help of her family, and she’s working hard to create the best

4.5

This is my second ARC from Amber Kelly and I had just finished the book today. I practically devoured the book overnight.

I've read the first book so I more less know who the characters were in the story because everybody in Poplar Falls are intertwined with each others lives.

I think this is a tad bit more emotional than the first book because there is Beau... You can't help but fall in love with this kid.

I wish there was more history written between Myer and Dallas. I would've wanted to read

This is my first Amber Kelly book, and I loved her work. Stone Hearts is one of the most beautiful and wonderful heartwarming romance. This small town contemporary romance is everything, and every romance fans should read it.

What I liked the most about this book is that, it doesn’t have drama, no love triangle, and no cheating. This is why this book is so perfect and is the best. Also, I loved the storyline and the characters in it. This book has a large cast of characters, but everyone are so

I love small town romance. Everyone knows everyone and will bend over backwards to help when needed. This is also friends to lovers too. Dallas and Myer have known each other since they were kids. After her ex goes to prison she comes home to raise her son. Myer is always there to help her. One day she realizes she has more feelings for him than just friends. Myer has loved her for awhile but is letting her heal from her divorce. When they get together it’s magical. This story has a bit of ...more

Being a single mother leaves Dallas with lots of friendships and family but no significant other in the mix. That is until one night camping changes the balance of the scales and her brother's best friend Myers finally takes things to the next level. But can Dallas juggle both her priorities to her son and stating a new relationship? What happens when a blast from her past comes back into town? I fell in love with these characters from the first few pages. Dallas' connection with her son was ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Hero and heroine were both awesome. Hero not a manwhore and heroine is not some shy virgin. Honestly this was one good example of a healthy adult relationship.

Little Beau was a cutie.

Myer and Dallas are EVERYTHING I ever want in a small-town romance, friends to lovers, brothers’ best friend, single mother and so many other romance tropes all rolled into one amazing journey of what one mother goes on to find herself. This is the second book in the series, but can be read as a standalone, but why would you want to just read this one!?!? Rustic Hearts is also out there in the world and should defiantly be next on your TBR shelf if it isn’t already there. What Amber has done ...more

This book is one of my favorite books ever! Small town romance always gets me, but this was FANTASTIC!

Meyer is perfection. Cowboy/Rancher, sexy, caring, sexy, hardworking, sexy, family and friend lover, sexy, loyal, sexy, honest, and did I mention sexy?

Dallas is everything I love. She is independent, strong, loyal, fun. flirty, gorgeous.

Slow burn at its finest. Just reading the chemistry these two friends have and watching them finally fall for each other was so wonderful.

Beau is just the

OH did I love this story. It was raw and emotional. A stunning friends to lovers tale between Myer and Dallas. Plus add the adorable son of Dallas, and you have this fun and quirky story that will keep you on your toes as it gives you a touch of suspense rolled into one.
The one thing I adored about this story is the flow. It felt like it was always on a perfect pace. The build ups added so much depth to it. Going through a traumatic past, I cannot blame Dallas any which way for her hang ups. I

This was a fantastic continuation to the Poplar Falls series. I am really loving this amazing group of friends and family. Dallas and Myer and Beau's story was truly wonderful.

Dallas is a young single mother who had to move back home after her disaster of a marriage imploded six years ago. But with the help of her parents and friends, she has been able to give Beau a great life. Dallas is a bit jaded by love and doesn't believe that she even deserves a happily ever after.

Ok this book was great. I liked book 1 fairly well and this one exceeded it. Friends to lovers, slower progression of the relationship. Loved Myer. He was all in. He loved Dallas and Beau. And Beau... I loved his character. Smart, inquisitive and just an all around great child character. Definitely dive into this one. 5 stars

This is my second read from Amber Kelly, I read this one like the first in one night.
I love a single parent story, they are always so heartfelt and real, and Stone Hearts hit the nail on the head.
Dallas is such a wonderful mother to Beau, alone since her husband is out of the picture, raising him to be kind and loving all on her own.
Myer knows it’s time to make Dallas his, and let her know she has always owed his heart. This book has all the hometown feels, with a little mystery thrown in

4.5 stars. This was my first book by Amber, and I have to say, I'll pick up her other books. It was such a freaking cute book. Friends to lovers. Small Town Romance. Single mom. Cute little boy. And boy, was Myer a catch. Lol He was the definition of perfect husband. He's always there for Dallas and her son Beau. Myer and Dallas completes each other. If you love small town romance, pick this one up.

*I received an ARC for an honest review.

A thoroughly entertaining story of family, good friends and love.

This is a second chance, friends to lovers story. I loved how all of the characters were so supportive and a family of sorts. Dallas is the epitome of a single parent to Beau (who is completely adorable) raising him to be kind and sweet, living her life on her terms and not being controlled by her ex. Myer had his dream change and with Dallas now home, he knows that this is the time to make his move and let Dallas know his heart.

"I could fall asleep like this every single night."

Another hit in the Poplar Falls series, can't wait to hear more about this small town in Colorado. In this book we get more about Dallas and her amazing baby boy, Beau. These two were one of the best parts of the first book, and getting to see more of their story was so amazing. Also, we get a little something something from Myer, the ex-jock that came back to Poplar Falls.
The best part about this book, that got me completely

3.5 Stars! A fabulous easy read romance!

I really enjoyed being transported back to Poplar Falls and thrown back into the chaos that comes with it!

Myer was such a sweetie, I loved that he waited until Dallas was ready for a relationship! His played his cards well and did all that he needed to do to prove that he was trust-worthy and honest after she had been so badly burned. I also really liked that he didn't try to make her jealous in anyway to force her hand but patiently waited. He was such

“I don’t want to put her fire out. I want to sit back and enjoy the burn. She doesn’t need to change a thing. She just needs someone to love her and love Beau with all he has, just the way they are.”
“You that man?” Payne asks, all the amusement gone from his voice.
“If she lets me be, I’ll be that man every single day for the rest of both their lives – or the rest of mine at the very least.”

“If we go inside, it’s gonna change everything,” she whispers.
What she doesn’t realize is, everything already has changed.
“Yeah,” I agree. “You ready for that?”
“I don’t know,” she answers honestly.
I sit up and take her mouth again. She opens and melts into the kiss.
When I pull back, I look her in the eye and whisper across her lips, “Yes, you do.”
