A gripping standalone adult contemporary romance about finding yourself while taking a second chance at your first love…
Dakota Nakos was always the resilient, strong-willed achiever. But when her father dies and she’s entrusted with the family’s casino, she feels vulnerable, scared, and more than a little emotional —not exactly the best time to see an old lover she’s never really gotten over.
Dakota once meant the world to Shane Garrity. Then suddenly he left town to train as a U.S. Marshal, and their love for each other crashed into a memory. Now he’s come home for her father’s funeral, and one look at the girl he left behind stirs up both memories and regrets, and reignites a fire he feared he’d lost forever.
Dakota may be the same driven girl she always was, but she’s also changed in ways neither could have anticipated. She’s not just a young woman searching for own identity in the Native American community in which she was raised, but one questioning her new life outside her father’s shadow. Above all she wonders if Shane can push past her weakened defenses to rekindle what they once had, or whether the intense blaze between them will ultimately reduce her heart to ashes.

I have always been a fan of Christina's books and again, Two of Hearts did not disappoint! It has drama, suspense, history, and included two of my favorite troupe's, second chance romance and a brother's best friend romance. This isn't a hard core, bit your nails suspense novel. It's more light hearted, just enough to keep you guessing.
Fantastic job from the beginning to end! The story was well written with amazing characters. While I kind of wanted a little more romance in the story, but I did really enjoy reading more about the Native American culture and their politics. I was familiar with some, but other we new to me.
This book is more in the contemporary genre verses her Between the Breathe's series, which is more new adult. The character's are older from when we are first introduced to them in previous books. This book can be read at a standalone, but why short yourself, read all her books!!!
