REVIEW TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - Cross Drop (On the Edge #2) by Elizabeth Hartey


New Adult Contemporary Romance




I’m not a saint. Never claimed to be. I’ve played the game and scored my fair share—both on and off the field. This is why I should have known better than to fall for a hockey player. But I did. I fell fast and hard.

Now I’m left with the painful consequences, reminded every day of how reckless I had been by giving him my heart so easily—so willingly. Dalt broke me in the cruelest of ways, and because of him I’ll never be able to love again.


Nikki changed me. She made me want to be a better man. My days playing off the field were over because she owned every little piece of my heart…until she left, leaving behind a gnawing ache where my heart used to be.

Now she’s back, and it’s painfully clear she hates me, ignoring me, pretending like I’m nobody to her. But that’s just too damn bad. I want answers. I want a goddamn explanation.

And most of all…I want her.

Dalt is one of those aberrations of humanity. He’s flawlessly gorgeous: dark, tousled, slightly wavy hair, classic chiseled jaw, perfect straight nose, soul piercing blue eyes, plump, very gifted lips, if you know what I mean. Everything about him screams sex. His black button-down shirt and dress pants accentuate every muscled line of his perfect Michael Stokes model body.

And he knows just how to use all his perfection to get what he wants. He’s not accustomed to hearing the word no, at least not from any oxygen breathing female. He’s using his locked and loaded molten gaze at this very moment, turning my bones to Jell-O and annihilating any wise decision-making on my part.

I want him so bad it hurts. It’s like staring at the shiny, poison apple, knowing if you taste it you’re doomed, but unable to resist its shimmering perfection. There’s more than just my heart to consider now, though. We have a lifelong connection he’s not aware of. Nevertheless, I have to disconnect my feelings for him. The man I fell in love with is not the man he turned out to be. He made his choice. He doesn’t get to have his cake and eat it too, even with those gifted lips.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

This is the first time I have read anything by this author. I can 100% say I was blown away. Hartey has the art of book writing down to a tee. She has talent. Hartey really captures the attention of readers and makes readers believe they are a part of the story too.

Cross Drop is a second chance romance with sport as it's theme. Dalton Walker is a super star ice hockey player. Nikki Dixon is a star soccer player. Separately they are amazing but together they are truly mesmerising. Their love and passion for one another is undeniable, they are truly made for one another - however all is not plain sailing. Throw in Dalton's meddling, conniving father and Nikki's whole world falls apart. Will Dalton and Nikki ever have their happy ever after? What lies ahead for the both of them? This  story captures your heart and along the way their are funny moments, sexy passion filled moments, tear jerking moments and suspense. They say the road to true love is never easy - in this case both Dalton and Nikki have a long road ahead. Read this book to find out how their journey ends. You will love it I promise.

A truly breathtaking book full of emotion and passion.

Thank you Elizabeth Hartey for sharing your talent with the world. I highly recommend this book! I will definitely be reading more of Hartey's  books. 

Even though Cross Drop is book 2 in the On The Edge series I haven't previously read book 1 so this can be read as a standalone.

As a lover of the northeast US, Elizabeth moved with her husband to the Poconos several years ago to open a Chiropractic Clinic. Four children and a menagerie of animals later, she has finally found time to fulfill her lifelong dream of writing novels. The wild ride of writing books is one of the most difficult things she’s ever done in her life. But the opportunity to get her stories out of her head and down on paper and send them out into the world is also one of the most wonderful things she’s ever done. A dreamer at heart, romance is the genre she spends most of her time writing and reading into the wee hours of the morning. And having readers fall in love with her characters as much as she does is almost as exciting as giving birth (just not as painful!) When not juggling work responsibilities and writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking the beautiful hills and woods around her home, swimming, knitting, watching old classic movies and travelling.
