Review: Crossing Hope by Kimberly Kincaid

Category : Reviews

Marley Rallston would rather be anywhere other than too-small-for-a-map-dot Millhaven, Virginia. But thanks to a heap of debt, what was supposed to be a quick trip to fulfill her mother’s dying wish has turned into an extended stay with the family she never knew she had and the father who never wanted her. To top it off, now she’s being forced to do community service with the town’s biggest bad boy, when all she wants to do is make enough cash to get out of Dodge? Life can’t get much worse.

The only thing Greyson Whittaker cares about is his family’s farm. He’ll do anything to keep Whittaker Hollow in the black, including live up to his rough, tough reputation by running the place by himself, no matter the cost. Mandatory community service with the daughter of their biggest rival is the last thing he wants or needs. But the more time Greyson and Marley spend together, the hotter their attraction burns, and the more the unlikely pair begins to realize that forbidden fruit just might taste the sweetest…

My Review:
Genre: Romance- enemies-to-lovers
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Yes. Book 4 of the Cross Creek series
POV: Marley and Greyson
Steam-level: Warm

Although book 4 of the series Crossing Home is the first I’ve read. Truly a standalone I had no problem diving into this book and following along. I enjoyed the characters and would love to spend some more time in Cross Creek. It was a fun combination in sweet, sexy and funny. Both Greyson and Marley have their defenses set to high and their initial interactions and snarkiness sets the initial tone. I like how the story unfolds along with their tightly woven self-preservation. The theme of living and loving while you have the chance is heart-warming and tear-jerking.

It’s been a while since I’ve read Kimberly Kincaid and I’ve forgotten how much I enjoy her work. I look forward to reading more of not only this series but her other books as well.

I received an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Favorite Quotes:

  • How was a girl with older brothers supposed to get laid around this place?
  • Life is what happens when  you’re dreaming of what you’re going to do with it.
  • No buts. Life’s too short for that. If this is the moment you’ve got now, then that’s the one you’ve gotta live. The other ones will come soon enough.
  • You can’t let the past dictate the present. Or the future.
  • Damn, he would worry that he’d gone completely soft, except for one tiny thing. He knew he had, and it felt so good, he didn’t care one whit who knew it.
