REVIEW - Diamonds and Dust (Lonesome Point, Texas #3) by Jessie Evans

The Book
Release Date: 30 November 2014
Goodreads Link

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.

My Opinion  5 STARS

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

I must admit that I find it hard to find anything about this series that I don't like.  Each book keeps getting better and better and we get to see a little more about previous characters, keeping them alive with their stories along with our new characters.  But this can be read as a stand alone story.

I think we had all pretty much guessed from book two what was going to happen with Pike and Tulsi and who Clementine's father really was.  That part was a no brainer.

The best bit was seeing both Pike and Tusli reconnect and finding that their past only made them think of how the past no longer really mattered as they both still really loved each other and had never gotten over the other.

We have a few surprises, an accident and a wedding, along with some sweet moments between Pike and Tulsi.

Mia really shows how much of a friend she is to Tulsi and that she can forgive very easily and we get introduced to one of the main characters for the next book, Tulsi's big sister Reece.  From the sounds of it, she's going to be a bit of a fire-cracker.

I'm really loving this series.
