Diamonds and Dust-- Jessie Evans!!!


Oh, holy crap- how much do I freaking love this book. Pike and Tulsi-- yeah, these are my two new Lonesome Point peeps. My new favorite couple.
For all of the crap that these two have endured, the years that they lost- all because of a simple misunderstanding- it tore me up. I hated that they lost that time, most especially- that Pike lost that time with his daughter. My heart broke for them, while at the same time, beat harder whenever they were together. There chemistry was hot, just plain ole hot.
First off, Tulsi. Where in the hell did that little sexpot side of her come from?? Throughout the first two books, you see her as much more reserved than she is when she lets loose with Pike. He definitely seemed to bring out her inner wildcat. And Pike- sex on a damn stick. Not to mention the Stetson- yep, that'll do it.
All in all, these two are absolutely setting the bar high for Jessie. I'm not sure that she'll be able to top them in the next books. They may well be the King and Queen of Lonesome Point, as far as I'm concerned!!
5 stars!!

A sexy second chance romance from NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Jessie Evans 

The home run neither of them expected… 

Pike Sherman is a legend in Lonesome Point, a hometown boy who made it to the big leagues. Literally. Professional baseball acquired one hell of a pitching arm and its latest celebrity bad boy when the gifted Pike was drafted seven years ago. Pike’s broken heart came along for the ride, too, but he kept that private, and since leaving Lonesome Point has kept his distance from his hometown. But when Pike’s little sister, Mia, begs him to be the Dude of Honor at her wedding, he can’t refuse. He takes advantage of a break in the season and returns home to find himself thrown together with the one woman he never wanted to see again. 

Tulsi Hearst is on the verge of losing her Equine Therapy business, and letting down all the kids she’s come to love. After a mix-up with the grant board, she needs to concentrate on finding more funding, not dealing with Pike Sherman, the boy she sacrificed so much for, and the one person she’s ever lied to. And what a lie it is… Pike would hate her if he found out. She knows she should stay far away from the brooding man her summer love has become, but Tulsi can’t resist a slow dance with the only boy who ever made her blood rush. 

After just a few days back in Lonesome Point, Pike can’t imagine life without the girl he left behind, but when Tulsi’s secret is revealed, his heart is broken all over again. The only thing worse than losing Tulsi, is losing six years with the daughter he didn’t know he had.
