Book Description

Are there soul connections that run deeper than love?

Dylan McBride is tired of his rock star lifestyle. Between the nosy press and crazed fans, all he wants is to be left alone…and find the angel who’s been plaguing his dreams.

When he meets Heaven Lewis, he knows she’s the one—from his dreams—for his future. There’s more than physical attraction drawing them together. Dylan can sense Heaven’s emotions with ease.

Being involved with a celebrity is the last thing Heaven wanted, especially since her previous relationship nightmare. Yet resisting Dylan doesn’t come easy. Something about him pulls at her heart…and her soul.

As the mysterious connection between them deepens, outside influences and a family secret threaten to keep them apart. Will Dylan lose his chance with Heaven, or will both surrender to What the Heart Wants?

    5.0 out of 5 stars This will make you swoon. January 5, 2012
    By Jody
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Warning you may need a cold shower after reading this book.
    This book is for those who love a real romance story. Your blood will pump, your heart will soar and you will shed a tear.
    Dylan and Heaven were both born 21 years ago on the same day. They have been in each others dreams since they were children. They are soulmates and are deeply connected to each other, though they have never met.
    All Dylan dreams of is one day finding the girl who who fills his soul and has his heart aching. Heaven cant stop thinking of the boy with the espresso colored eyes in her dreams. Imagine Dylans surprise when he walks into his best mates wedding and finds Heavan there. He knows its her, the girl from his dreams. His body burns and his heart aches just to be near her. But Heavan doesnt know its her dark eyed boy from her dreams. She quickly decides she has no interest in Dylan, the bad boy rock star. She knows how those boys are. But she cant help the feeling that there is something about him and the pull she feels towards him.

    This is a wonderful paranormal romance. And Im a huge sucker for a romance. It's full of passion,love and tender moments and I was glued to reading it, wanting to know all about Dylan and Heaven's love story. There were a couple of scenes that left me feeling like I needed a cold shower. Wow Dylan is a love machine and he left me all hot and flustered many times. He also has a beautiful soul, and you cant help but love him. Heaven is equally easy to love.
    I just devoured this story. There were highs and lows for Dylan and Heavan and an an amazing story behind their connection. I cant wait for book 2!! I will just eat it up!! I miss Dylan and Heaven already.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and can't wait for the second book in the series! The idea of soulmates meeting at birth and dreaming of each other is a novel concept and I look forward to reading more!

    3.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet Romance and Good Escape January 5, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed the paranormal twist of the bonding through dreams, but that played out in reading long before the mystery of it was revealed. I enjoyed this book, but would have enjoyed it more if it were half as long. I found myself getting frustrated at the drawing out of the inevitable. I enjoyed the characters, they were strong and well written. The dialog was snappy and fun. The settings were idyllic. In all, a good story with a good premise - but I found myself skimming.
    Romance gets a bad rap for the frequently used plot element of miscommunications that lead to conflict. Unnecessary conflict. I got annoyed at both Dylan and Heaven and wanted them to just have an honest, frank conversation and get past all the worry and insecurities. Then again, if they had done that the book would be half as long.

    I will read more from this author. I really did like the characters and look forward to seeing what happens next.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific, well-written, engaging read! November 30, 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition
    What a great book! I got caught up from the beginning and kept turning pages to see what would happen. The romance elements are strong -- the attraction between the two main characters draws you in from the very beginning and builds quickly but so slyly you find yourself thinking about them long after the book is over. Yet you don't want it to end! The paranormal elements are woven throughout and believable. I'm a sucker for a great paranormal story and this one did not disappoint.

    For those who are disappointed in this book, I completely disagree. But that's the beauty of how emotionally involved people have become in this series and just shows how successful the author is in eliciting responses! So BRAVO Ms. McCracken!

    All in all, I enjoyed McCracken's book and would recommend it to anyone looking for an involving read with memorable characters, paranormal romance elements, and the beginning of a terrific series!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! January 8, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    beautifully written, pulls at one's heartstrings like a haunting melody. loved that it was something new amongst so many paranormal YA books circulating fulled with different takes on the same stories (vampires, werewolves, angels, fallen angel, demons, etc). i mean, don't get me wrong, a well written book is a treat even if some of the elements and/or plots are repetetive. but is's rewarding when we get to experience newness within a well written book, this romance did just that, took a fresh venue in a saturated genre. the soul-mate story line was wonderfully executed and the characters were perfect. i didn't feel that the pace of the book was too slow as some other reviewers have stated. i rather enjoyed the fact that the author took the time to open up their story slowly giving attention to both sides of the main leads by alternating their narration of chapters back and forth. i think the pace was perfect. can't wait for book 2.
