'Crossing the Line' by Kimberly Kincaid is book Two in the "Cross Creek" series. This is the story of Scarlett Edwards-Stewart and Eli Cross. I have not yet the previous books, so for me this was a standalone book.
Eli is the youngest of the brothers in the Cross Family. Eli seems to get a bad deal at every turn when working with his family. Yes, Eli doesn't make sound choices but when he makes these choices he has his heart in them. Like when he chooses to secretly help his dad with some of his work and then gets in trouble because now one knows he did it and they think he just be slacking somewhere. Eli even goes so far as to make a heated bet with a long standing rial to him when that person talks bad about the Family Farm. But there is more to Eli than he lets on...which Scarlett starts to see.
Scarlett has an unusual childhood being in the foster care than taking in by two daddies. Scarlett is now making a name for herself as a photographer and been working really hard. When her best friend confides in her that she needs help Scarlett quickly takes up the roll to help her by taking on the story of the Cross Family. Scarlett will work on taking pictures and getting some in site on the family for her friends magazine.
When Eli is put in charge of her and helping her get what she needs for the story, he is at first upset. But they start to get to know each other and find that there first impressions of each other are not who they really are.
Sweet Romance Story!
