- Book 2 of Cross Creek
Cocky farmer Eli Cross plays twice as hard as he works. When his latest stunt drums up a heap of negative PR for the family farm, he grudgingly agrees to play host to an ambitious New York City photographer. Her feature on Cross Creek could be just the ticket to show the country what the Cross brothers do best…which is more problem than solution for Eli.
Scarlett Edwards-Stewart has photographed everything from end zones to war zones. She's confident she can ace this one little story to help her best friend's failing magazine. At least, she would be if her super-sexy host wasn't so tight lipped. But the more Scarlett works with Eli, the more she discovers that he's not who he seems. Can his secret bring them closer together? Or will it be the very thing that tears them apart?

Eli Cross has been pigeonholed into the role of slacker for years, even though his brothers have no clue what he does around Cross Creek Farm. When he makes a bet with a nemesis from another farm, his family is furious. As if they don't all work their bodies to the bone as it is! In a twist of fate that'll change everything, renowned photographer Scarlett Edwards-Stewart will be spending a month on the farm for a major feature story with an online food blog. Scarlett's been all over the world, showing people all the amazing things out there. Eli's not happy about having to play babysitter, but he soon learns that Scarlett's not the stuck up city girl he thought. Nope, in fact, she's quite amazing. So amazing that Eli begins to see things he never could imagine. When Scarlett's time is up, will he be able to let her go?
Cross Creek is such a great series, and book 2, CROSSING THE LINE, was an excellent read! I have the biggest crush on Scarlett…I've always dreamed of traveling the world to photograph life. Sadly, those job opportunities don't come around often. I loved Eli too, though my heart broke for his innate need to hide who he was for fear of what his family would do/say. His creativity hasn't ever been encouraged, but he's found ways to help it grow like the produce his family cultivates. They make a magnetic couple, a damn good team. The book was almost magical in its gorgeous setting and sweet and sensual characters, and until the end, the drama was low-key. But, Ms. Kincaid dropped a BOMBSHELL of a cliffhanger sitch at the end that has me super excited that the third book is already out so I won't have to stress! Cray-zeeee! This is an excellent series that I would most definitely recommend!
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
