Nick Hamilton has always known he'd take the reins of the family business when his father died, but that doesn't make it any easier when the time comes. Especially with his two siblings tempted by a shrewd offer from a huge corporation to buy Hamilton Industries. Needing advice, Nick turns to his sensible childhood friend, Becca Stark-and finds her suddenly grown-up beauty ignites brand-new confusion, and crystal clear desire...
Becca has loved Nick for as far back as she can remember, but she decided long ago that telling him would be a mistake. Stubborn, strong Nick doesn't see her as anything but the tomboy she used to be-or does he? As she helps him untangle his feelings about the ranch's future, the familiar bond between them heats into an explosive attraction-and the kind of love that just might take the lead...
Praise for Melissa West's Racing Hearts
"An emotional story filled with heart, humor, and second chances, "Racing Hearts " is a love letter to small towns, southern pride, and the heartbeat of all tight communities-its strong families. I laughed, I cried, and I never wanted to leave. An incredible story!" --Rachel Harris, "New York Times " bestselling author
Review: 3 1/2 Stars
I love a good book about best friends who are fighting their feelings for each other, each other thinking the other just wants to be friends but the other wants so much more but they are feeling the same way & friends & family can see what they are feeling & Silent Hearts is that book. You can just feel Nick & Becca fighting their feelings afraid if they tell each other how they feel they may loose their friendship of 20+ years if the react to their attraction. I just wanted to go thru this book & wring Nick's neck in parts of this book & saying "you jerk realize wants in front of you & start living for today & your future". Nick was trying to keep his dad & his former fiancee's memory alive not realizing he was loosing what was more important in life his family & Becca. The only thing I disliked was Nick's pity party, his going back & forth one moment he was ok with his brothers & Becca, then the next if they didn't kiss his butt he blew up & didn't want anything to do with, at one time I was thinking Becca just give up on him & his pity party, you deserve better, but then Nick did redeem himself.
