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.
Y'all know everything is bigger in Texas...
Oh my freakin' goodness, doesn't that cover give you the feels, bookgasm!! Haha
That book is something you need to get a hold of, I've already read it, believe me. I should be posting my review on Goodreads soon, and then here with the Blog Tour so be on the lookout for that.
So, I'm from Texas. I live in Lonesome Point, Texas. Wait, let me explain. I actually live in a small town, that has an annual event, bringing people from all over. Everybody in town knows everybody, and everything. There are several families that own large parts of town. We have several bars that people frequent 24/7. Literally. Love line dances. There are historical landmarks scattered across town, a bunch of buildings from a century ago that are still standing. I can prove it, having been part of the 100th graduating class of our little Podunk town a few years ago. We even have a cowboy from here that made it HUGE in the music industry.
Only several miles, straight-shot, from San Antonio, and a few hours from Austin. I have a handful of friends I still talk too from school and used to always play pranks and jokes around town. And what Texas town doesn't have a DQ. Mmmm blizzards and fries. Now I'm hungry.
Okay, I kind of went off topic. We have a variety of cowboys, although my town is more Hispanic populated than anything but there are both Country cowboys, and TexMex Cowboys. Let me better explain with an image. You can probably tell which is which..
I am totally 100% serious with these pictures though, we have cowboys walking around looking exactly like this: HOT. I see this one guy every time I go out with my mom (I know how that sounds, who goes out with their mom, right? I do!) and I remember asking my mom who he was since she goes out more than me, and he ended up being an older brother of a guy I graduated with. We call him big booty because his butt looked freakin' huge in them Wranglers. Lmao
Okayy, now you know what I see on a daily basis, now this is the cowboy I grew up with.
He was really good-looking was he was young. I grew up with this cowboy always on TV and we used to have a mini statue/sculpture of John Wayne that my cousin gave to my grandpa for his birthday, but he sold it at the flea market smh. My grandpa loves his movies, so it was inevitable for me to love them as well. I may be biased, but his movies are the best. My grandpa actually kind of looks like John Wayne.
And last but not least, the other cowboy that I was bound to love also because of my grandpa. He actually lived around here, but got recognized in San Antonio, I think. I mentioned it a bit earlier that he made it big, you might've heard of him.
My grandpa would always take me to school, or Head Start when I was little, and he always had the country station on playing George Strait, George Jones, etc. I love his music now. I may be a bit biased, but his songs are the best. My grandpa actually kind of looks like him too. Don't take my word for it, see for yourself.
