Let me start with what lured me into to reading What the Heart Wants – the cover. I was immediately captured and swept away by how sweet yet seductive the cover is. I found it to be a perfect representation of the two main characters, Dylan and Heaven. Both are strong and well written. I found the struggles they had to endure a perfect balance of anguish and sweetness – just enough of both to keep it from being too saccharin sappy or wailing ugly cry story.

What the Heart Wants was touted to be a paranormal story. The paranormal aspect of this book is the psychic connection between Dylan and Heaven. I do not necessarily consider that a paranormal commodity but that is this reader’s personal opinion.

The one thing I truly have to give author Kelli McCracken props to is the excellent cast of supporting characters. Like a house of cards each one of them was an added element that, if went missing, the story would have collapsed. I do wish the next book were about one of them. And speaking of the next book…

Of course, this is a series and with all series, there is quite a cliffhanger. You will have to read the book if you want to know what it is. I certainly cannot wait to find out what happens next. Over-all What the Heart Wants is delightful afternoon read for anyone wanting a romantic escape from reality.

I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.
