Two years and a few dirty secrets stand between them.
For as long as she can remember, Emma Pierce has wanted to leave her sleepy hometown behind. She finally succeeds…and two years later, finds herself back in Three Rivers and face to face with the reason she left—a cowboy she can't resist.
Noah Baylor has made his fair share of mistakes, and letting the girl next door leave him in a cloud of dust ranks near the top of that list. When Emma rolls back into town, he vows not to let this second chance go to waste. He's a different man now, who knows what he wants…and what he wants is his best friend, Emma Pierce.
He's hurt her enough, but the only future Noah wants is one with Emma in it, and time is running out for him to prove it before she walks away for good.
This book is a part of the Hearts of Three Rivers: The Baylors series. Each book stands alone as a complete read, but features appearances from other family members who may have their own story to tell in a different book. Amity's stories can best be described as 'sweet western heat', and contain open door bedroom scenes, but no frank language.

Love is everlasting
From start to finish never once did I want to put down this book (since I purchased and read all in one day). Noah and Emma share a long friendship/undying love that neither knew would come back together after many hardships have been thrown their way. Love is everlasting and we don't realize just how true that love is until we have it laid out in front of our eyes in a way that we can't ignore. I have read many romance novels in the past 6 months but this book is in my top 3 category. I cannot wait to read more of what Amity Lassiter has to throw our way as she continues to expand in her writing experiences.
Can you be too tough to be sweet?
Noah can't. In all his efforts he couldn't get passed the past. Emma couldn't seem to get through to him, either. Unknown love, in my opinion, is worse that falling out of love and it's not until she's leaving that he figures that out. A story of putting life and loss ahead of want and need to get back to who you used to be before tragedy struck, Homecoming Heart made me want to shake my fist at oblivious boys but it also intrigued me into what the main character would do next to prove himself worthy.
A tearjerker for sure but I also found myself giggling at Noah's antics.
Feeling in the mood for something different and quick? I suggest Homecoming Heart.
