Crossing Hearts by Kimberly Kincaid: Review & Excerpt AND Worthless by Lynne Silver

Crossing Hearts by Kimberly Kincaid is the first installment in a fresh new series that will leave you dreaming of sexy farmers. Yes, farmers are sexy ;).  If you have a passion for great cooking, enjoy characters with electric chemistry, and a huge helping of spice – one-click this book! If you are a fan of Kimberly’s firefighter series than you are going to LOVE her Cross Creek series. It’s time to get out of the city (sorry Station Seventeen) and escape to the Shenandoah.

Hunter Cross has always put his family first and when an old injury threatens to derail him from his job on the farm, he reluctantly seeks treatment. It’s what he doesn’t expect that sends his system into a tailspin and question, can he live with the pain?

Emerson Montgomery has worked hard to make something of her career, to be taken seriously and keep her reputation solid.  When an old flame resurfaces, can she keep the truth regarding her recent return to town under wraps? If her secret gets out, it just might destroy them both.

I’m looking forward to reading the next installment in this spicy must read. Secrets, family saga and small town goodness. I will confess one warning, you must read this after you have consumed a hearty meal 😉 Kimberly’s love of food is woven throughout this story. Between the fresh produce and home cooking you are bound to find yourself in a constant food coma – yum!
With the heat and intensity in this book I give it 3 Peppers as it’s pretty hot and might offend. For mature readers 18+3 Jalepenos

I received this ARC from the publisher for a fair and honest review.

Check out this Excerpt:

“I’ve got a patient for you, so I thought I’d pop over to see if you have an opening today,” Doc Sanders said.

Emerson thought of her schedule, complete with the tumbleweeds blowing through its wide- open spaces, and bit back the urge to laugh with both excitement and irony. “I’m sure I can fit someone in. What’s the injury?”

“Rotator cuff. X-rays and MRI are complete, and Dr. Norris, the orthopedist in Camden Valley, ordered PT. But the patient is local, so I figured if you could take him, it’d be a win-win.”

“Of course.” An odd sensation plucked up Emerson’s spine at the long-buried memory of a blue-eyed high school boy with his arm in a sling and a smile that could melt her like butter in a cast-iron skillet. “Um, my schedule is pretty flexible. What time did he want to come in?”

“Actually, he’s a little anxious to get started, so he came directly here from the ortho’s office . . .”
Doc Sanders turned toward the hallway leading to her waiting room, where a figure had appeared in the doorframe. Emerson blinked, trying to get her brain to reconcile the free-flowing confusion between the boy in her memory and the man standing in front of her. The gray-blue eyes were the same, although a tiny bit more weathered around the edges, and weirdly, the sling was also a match. But the person staring back at her was a man, with rough edges and sex appeal for days, full of hard angles and harder muscles under his jeans and T-shirt . . .
Hunter Cross.

Emerson stood with her feet anchored to the linoleum, unable to move or speak or even breathe. For the smallest scrap of a second, she tumbled back in time, her heart pounding so hard beneath her crisp white button-down that surely the traitorous thing would jump right out of her chest.

A blanket of stars littering the August sky . . . the warm weight of Hunter’s varsity jacket wrapped around her shoulders . . . the warmer fit of his mouth on hers as the breeze carried his whispers, full of hope . . . “Don’t go to New York. Stay with me, Em. Marry me and stay here in Millhaven where we’ll always have this, just you and me . . .”
“Emerson? What . . . what the hell are you doing here?”

The deeper, definitely more rugged-around-the-edges version of his voice tipped the scales of her realization all the way into the present. She needed to say something, she knew, she knew, but her mouth had gone so dry that she’d have better luck rocketing to the moon in a paper airplane right now.

“I work here,” Emerson finally managed, the truth of the words—of what they meant—delivering her back to reality with a hard snap. She hadn’t returned to Millhaven for a jaunt down memory lane. Hell, she’d only come back when her process of elimination had dead-ended in total despair. She was here for one thing, and one thing only. To bury herself in as much work as her body would allow.
Even if her first client probably hated her guts.

Author Info:Headshot Kincaid
Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet. When she’s not sitting cross-legged in an ancient desk chair known as “The Pleather Bomber”, she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a USA Today best-selling author and a 2015 RWA RITA® finalist who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. Kimberly resides in Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters. Visit her any time at or come check her out on Facebook ( and Twitter (@kimberlykincaid).

Worthless by Lynne Silver is the second book in The Worthy series and is set in Miami. The perfect vacation destination you can one-click right now for $0.99. This intimate must read is even better than the first installment, and I LOVED Unworthy.   

Danny Ross is a man with a dark past. Throughout all the ups and downs there has been one person who has stood by him. Will she have the strength to stay by his side this time? 

Amy Stern was in love with Danny a long time ago. What’s a girl to do when her heart and mind have an epic battle? Is the devil you know better than the one you don’t? While she’s a savvy business woman, she finds herself in a compromising position that will require a leap of faith, a lot of trust and hopefully the happy ending she deserves.

Lynne crafts characters that gently sweep you into their world of friendships, love and even some that are awkward and taboo.  It’s real life, gritty, raw and emotionally unpredictable. Brace yourself dear reader, you will find yourself hooked from the first page and a devoted fan thereafter. This story is one that I waited patiently for after I finished Unworthy.

Everyone can use a hot escape for just a few hours. This three pepper spicy latte is a must read that sizzles. I have my fingers crossed on which character has their happy-ever-after next. It just has to be Lynne ;)!

3 JalepenosThis story is pretty hot with content for mature readers 18 +.
