Book Description

Bound by destiny, can their love survive those that would tear them apart? 

Dylan McBride thought he had it all when Heaven Lewis agreed to marry him. Yet the secrets surrounding them continue to build. Dylan's father won't accept his relationship with Heaven, but Dylan refuses to let his dad come between them. Even if it means giving up his life as a rock star.

His refusal brings a turn of events that may cost him Heaven's life. The only person he can count on for help is Layne. While his best friend agrees to help, Dylan can tell Layne is keeping secrets of his own.

Among the chaos, Heaven is adjusting to her newfound abilities when she discovers they're evolving. As if psychic powers aren't enough to deal with, someone is making threats on her life. Threats that will unravel family secrets and put friendships to the test. All for What the Heart Needs.

Also available in the Soulmate Series:
What the Heart Wants: Soulmate #1
What the Heart Takes: Soulmate #3

5.0 out of 5 stars This series is slowly killing me! November 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How am I possibly going to stand the wait until the next book comes out, the wait since the first one nearly killed me!? Kelli has such a gift for weaving a beautiful and heart wrenching love story. Dylan and Heaven's story would make even the most hardened heart ache for a soul mate.

Please Kelli, bring something good about for Layne in the next story...he is such a great character and he really deserves a happy ending too!

Love this series, I would recommend it to anyone who loves a story where you can really connect with the characters you're reading about....believe me Kelli's soul mate series won't disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Onion Layers November 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kelli does it again with book 2 of the Soulmate series! She's outdone herself with this one, packed full of intensity and heartwarming moments.

Heaven and Dylan's journey gets a real workout in What the Heart Needs. The entire book had me on the edge of my seat, desperately trying to put it down to take a breather, but utterly incapable of doing so. Every time I thought I knew what was coming, another bomb would go off and smack me in the face. I just couldn't get enough! Kelli does a brilliant job bringing this book to a close, pulling the reader down from the adrenaline high that's provoked throughout the rest of the book. Sizzling romance, realistic struggles, wonderful story. I can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars What the Heart Needs November 2, 2012
By Kpage35
Format:Kindle Edition
After waiting so long for this second book in the series, I was not disappointed. The continuing story of the lives of Dylan and Heaven was just as powerful as the beginning. I love the base idea of the Soul mate Series. I will be anxiously waiting for the next book. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to get swept away in a good love story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed December 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not going to lie, I had to wait a long time for this book to come out. It was so worth it. This book explained a whole lot more. Heaven and Dylan know that they are soul mates, meant to be together. However, there are other things at play. The reader learns about a secret society for the paranormal. Layne finds out a few things good and bad. He has become one of my favorite characters. There is some action packed scenes that make the story a page turner. If you read What the Heart Wants then this is a no brainer. Pick this one up. It is a great sequeal and will answer a lot of questions but then again it leaves you with a few also. Can't wait for book 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful story. January 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I just enjoyed reading both “what the heart wants“ and “what the heart needs.“ I could not put the second book down. Both books were easy reading and engulfing. You sometimes came up with a thought on how the story line was going to go and it surprised me when I was incorrect and the story went a different way. Both books were read in about two weeks when started. I cannot wait to get my hands on book three. I am sad I must wait for this book. I am sure I am not alone in wanting to know what will happen next to Dylan and Hope. Will Faith return? Is she somewhat involved with what is happening?_

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it December 27, 2012
By Reese
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series has turned me upside fown inside out and I am in love because of it. This story gives me hope like the first one did. I love the consistancy of the story and the fact that we get more with the characters. I am pissed about the sister and it aggravates me that there were so many secrets. I mean come on give them the truth at least let them handle it. I also like the background of the families and the history involved it gave the story another layer to the already intriguing story. I can't wait for another

5.0 out of 5 stars keeps getting better November 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say I loved the first book, but now the story just keeps getting better. The book keeps you in love with the characters and in suspense as the story unfolds. The book brings the romance, suspense, and supernatural. I know I could not stop reading until the book ended and now will be dying for book three. I would highly recommend this series. You will fall in love with the characters and in Kelli as an author.

More About the Author

As a curator of characters, you'll normally find Kelli McCracken sitting at her desk, working hard on her next novel. When she's not arguing with those persistent people inside her head, you can find her hanging out on Facebook, chatting with readers about books and upcoming writing projects.

"It seems like all I ever do is write...and listen to Layne. He's always whispering something naughty in my ear, like being dipped in chocolate. Now I'm craving a Kit-Kat. Welcome to my zany life, where sanity is optional, romance is required, and liquor is most definitely quicker. Jack Daniels keeps me sane, my characters, not so much."

Kelli lives with her husband, four children, and her German Shepherd fur baby in the Ohio Valley region in the United States. If you'd like to learn more about Kelli, please visit her on the web at
