This heartwarming story will have you laughing, cheering and wondering when someone will back-hand the Senator's daughter, stomp the brother and kill the ex-boyfriend, just to put them all out of their misery.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Love December 5, 2008
The second book of The Heart Series - The Heart of Him is a very enjoyable read. Having read the previous novel of this series I was eager to jump back into the lives of Ashley, James, Jeffrey, Tracy, and the rest of the gang.

Iris Bolling does not disappoint as she weaves an intriguing story of romance, politics, secrets, and lies. I found myself submerged in Ashley and James' story. After a year of dating the couple realize they are very much in love. Once this declaration of love is acknowledged and marriage is their destiny, old grudges and vindictive plots are set into motion to destroy Ashley and James' happiness. I found myself despising the villians and cheering for this couple as I became engrossed in this story. Ms. Bolling also does a wonderful job introducing us to a new cast of characters and family secrets that will have you stunned beyond believe.

If you're looking for an enjoyable read I recommend The Heart of Him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love and Politics, Continued November 15, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Heart of Him is a sequel to Iris Bolling's first book, Once You've Touched the Heart. Written in the same vein, it is a continuation of her first book, along with a number of surprises and secrets revealed. It is the love story of Ashley and James. I found this book to be just as rivetting as the first. Ms. Bolling has taken this as an opportunity to further develop and explore a number of the characters she introduced in her first book. She has added some new and interesting characters as well. James, the hero in this story, turns out to be a force to be reckoned with. Ashley is feisty, sassy, and outspoken. The love between them is strong, true, and hot. Their journey is fraught with danger and intrigue. Yet, the book is full of the warmth and love found amongst family and friends along with a healthy dose of hilarity. Ms. Bolling has done another fine job. If you enjoyed the first book, you will find the Heart of Him very rewarding as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic example of love September 18, 2009
Author Iris Bolling has made a fan of me with this excellent spin off of "Once you've touched the Heart." I call it a spin off because Ashley Harrison and James Avery have taken the lead in this installment, while we are still informed of the on goings of JD Harrison and his lovely wife Tracy. Iris has brought the whole gang back and their bond is still strong. I love her writing style, her vivid description, and excellent story line. You will hate the villains and root for the main characters. This novel will take you on an emotional tailspin as you feel for these characters, as you hope with out a shadow of doubt that love will over come everything.

I MUST read the third part in this series. I can not wait to get my hands on it as Cynthia takes the lead in that one. I am sure it will be even better than the first two books as Ms. Bolling is just get getting better with each book. She is truly a force to be reckoned with and is making her name in this literary world. These novels need a disclaimer - *warning will keep you up past your bedtime, will make you late for work etc. etc.* I literary could not put this book down until the end and even then I was wishing I had part three to continue reading. Kudos to you Ms Bolling on a successful sequel!

4.0 out of 5 stars Romance You Will Enjoy December 3, 2008
The Heart of Him, Iris Bolling's sophomore novel, picks up where her last novel ended. The first time Ashley Harrison saw James Brooks, she knew that he was the man she was destined to spend the rest of her life with. He was tall, handsome, smart and funny. He was also ten years older with a very guarded past. James agreed to be the campaign manager for Ashley's brother, JD Harrison. James admitted that there was something that attracted him to Ashley and he simply could not stay away from her. But making her a part of his life meant that he had to make amends with his past. As their relationship grew, secrets from their past began to surface and threatened their relationship. It was also a threat to JD's campaign and political future.

Bolling's story was very intriguing and fun to read. She was able to introduce two characters that were likeable and realistic. I also enjoyed the campaign strategies as James prepared to run for office, very much reminiscent of this year's presidential campaign. Bolling answered questions from her first book and left room for additional stories. Fans of Bolling will enjoy this one as much as her first book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hearts Intertwined.... December 26, 2008
The Heart of Him is the follow up of Iris Bolling's first novel, Once You've Touched the Heart. This series picks up right where the first novel left off with Ashley Harrison and James Brooks. The course of the story builds upon their relationship, politics, mystery, intrigue and A LOT of questions that get answered. Richmond, Virginia is well represented in the mix of all that is conveyed in this smash novel.

Bolling has proven herself worthy of writing a series with such strong literary contributions from her characters. The plots are superbly weaved together, just enough to keep you flying through the pages to see what happens next! Kudos to the author and I look forward to reading her next installment in the Heart Series!
