The home run neither of them expected…
Pike Sherman is a legend, a hometown boy who made it to the big leagues. Literally. Professional baseball acquired one hell of a pitching arm 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 his sister, Mia, begs him to be the Dude of Honor at her wedding, he can’t refuse. He 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. She needs to concentrate on finding 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 should stay far away from the brooding man her first love has become, but Tulsi can’t resist a slow dance with the only cowboy who ever made her blood rush.
After just a few days back in Lonesome Point, Pike and Tulsi find themselves falling hard. Can their second chance survive Tulsi’s secret, or will Pike leave Lonesome Point a broken man all over again?

Tulsi and Pike
Sweet, funny and wonderful. Loved every page of it. What a bunch of great characters! Perfect ending!
I have read the all of the novels in the Lonesome Point, TX Series and have loved them but this one has become my favorite! I sensed it from the start...
Tulsi and Mia have been friends forever and for as long as Tulsi can remember she has had a crush on her best friend Mia's brother Pike. He is four years older and seemed to only treat her like a sister until he couldn't any more. When she was finally right in front telling him what she thought about him, then it finally hit him. That was the feeling he has also had all these years. Too bad they broke each other's hearts....
Seven years later and they are trying to avoid one another. Pike is in town to be with his family and to do a meet and greet for his hometown fans, he is a pitcher in the Major leagues. He doesn't come home, he stays away from it but Mia needed him. Tulsi is a single mom to a feisty little girl and has her own issues to deal with and doesn't want to add another heartbreak from the only man she ever loved.
They hate each other. They love each other. They don't know how to feel. The passion is still there but the past is hard to move on from. Nobody even knows about their secret spring fling. They never forgot how it was to be together but they also can't forget the heartbreak. Pike wants to move on, he wants to start over but Tulsi is fighting back because of a secret she is holding on to. Can they leave their past in the past? Will the secret ruin them?
Like I said it was my favorite in the series. Pike is hot and cold and that just make him even sexier. He is the perfect amount of alpha with the mix of sweetness. He knows what he wants and doesn't give up. Tulsi is pretty awesome even though I was mad at her but she is independent, feisty, and a fun mom. And Clementine, her daughter is just precious and a little rock star in my book. I laughed, I cried and wanted to slap someone so a great mix of emotions.
At that moment, she understood that Pike Sherman hated her. He hated her with a passion as hot and intense s the passion they'd shared when hey we're kids.
It was true. Pike was the only person he had ever known her, inside and out, even the parts she was sometimes fraud to admit was there, and that's why he couldn't bear to be around him.
"It's always the quiet ones, you know," she said, continuing to giggle. "We're lol wild sex perverts, with dark, forbidden desires."
Review: Lonesome Point, Texas #3: Diamonds and Dust
Diamonds and Dust by Jessie Evans is the third book in her Lonesome Point, Texas series.
This story is about Pike Sherman (Mia's brother) who has been away playing professional baseball and Tulsi, Mia's best friend. I'm so totally pleased with myself when I saw this storyline coming when Pike was mentioned in the last book and Tulsi's reaction was what it was. Oh the angst...
Tulsi has been around for us since the beginning of the series. She's Mia's best friend. practically her sister they're so close. Mia was theone who helped Tulsi with Clementine when she was a baby. Late night feedings, colicy evenings filled with no sleep. Mia was there, helping. Tulsi is now struggling to keep her equine therapy business open and keep herself from falling apart when she learns that Pike, Mia's brother, will be back in town for Mia's wedding.
Pike hates coming back to Lonesome Point. Not only does he have a very hard time dealing with his father but it's home to th ewoman that ripped his heart straight out of his chest seven years ago. Tulsi was the one and only for him until the day she told him she was pregnant with another man's child.
Now that Pike's back, Tulsi is terrified he'll take one look at Clem and see who the father is. Once that happens she'll not only lose the last connection to Pike but she'll probably lose Mia too.
Another beautiful romance with some steamy romance and angsty drama. Love this series.
How had he survived for so long without her? She was the treasure he'd been hunting for, the precious thing he'd lost, and all the proof he needed to believe in miracles.~ Pike
