All Jessica wanted was to run her family’s vineyard. But after her childhood love and next-door neighbor, Matthew, broke her heart, leaving it all behind became the only way to steer clear of him—and his new wife.
With the death of her uncle, she’s forced to come home and settle her family’s estate. Coming home means seeing Matthew, and he’s the last person she wants to run into. Her hopes of avoiding him at all costs turns to dust when she discovers he’s living in her childhood home with plans to buy it.

Matthew, fully aware he married the wrong woman, felt he didn’t have a choice. She was pregnant with his child, and he refused to be another deadbeat dad. Unfortunately, doing the right thing meant sacrificing his heart—and the life he assumed he’d build with Jessica one day.
After his wife died in childbirth, Matthew turned all his attention on his daughter and his new veterinary practice. His life as a single dad falls into a comfortable, ordinary routine until the woman who walked away from him finally comes home. Now Matthew must find a way to not only keep the house his daughter loves, but also win back the woman he’s always loved.

In the middle of tourist season in Watercress Falls, there’s nowhere Jessica can go. She has to live with Matthew in her house. He’s different now, but can Jessica learn to forgive his betrayal, let alone trust him again? Or will she walk away from her last chance with her one true love?
Trusting Hearts is a steamy full-length STANDALONE romance filled with lots of sexy times in the bedroom (or outdoors by a lake), profanity, and love with a HEA ending!

Matt’s wife had died in childbirth so he and his daughter were close. He ran his veterinary practice and enjoyed the routine. Then Jessica came home. She told someone she may not sell the house but would live there. Could Matt finally have a conversation with her and the two of them clear out all the misunderstandings and incorrect assumptions they had let destroy their future together? She hadn’t known he came to her graduation with an engagement ring to start their lives as a couple. But he saw a man with his arm around her kiss her cheek. Instead of finding out who it was, he left her and married someone else. It wasn’t until the funeral that she introduced him to the man he had been so jealous of -- her business partner and his wife. Will Jessica ever forgive him for all the pain he dumped on her? Can she ever trust or depend on him again? Will the two of them finally talk and figure out if they want this second chance to make things right?
This is a really good second change, single dad romance. I wish for the 2 main characters appearing to be in their 30’s that they had talked to each other more, but we all lead with our heads on occasion and they did just that and focused on their hurt. It takes a 4 year old to make Jess see the error of her ways and to close the door on the past.
I always enjoy Aria’s books and this one is no exception. Well written, strong characters, good story!
I received an ARC copy of this book and am leaving an honest review.
