Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars

In Your Heart is the third book of the Willow Creek series, focusing on bassist Ezra Collins and Sadie Westbrooks. We were introduced to both characters in the first book Last To Know, when Sadie’s best friend Emma was the main character.

I was both eager and hesitant to read this book. Eager, because I love, love, LOVED the first two books in the series, Last To Know and Never Too Late, which focused on Remy and Mathias. Hesitant because I’m one of those people who have a

In Your Heart was a best friends to lovers tale that made me smile and swoon even when I was anxious and reeling because it felt real and meaningful. I loved this installment of the Willow Creek boys and getting to know two characters that have been on the fringes.

Ezra and Sadie became friends after their best friends Maddox and Emma, respectively, started dating. As they were brought into each others social circles, they started a best friendship all of their own. They sp

“Life is a series of choices that we make, some of them are good, and some of them are not, but everything always works out in the end.”

In Your Heart follows the story of Ezra and Sadie. I don’t know about you guys, but I have been dying to get my hands on their story. And let me tell you, this was such an amazing story. Dare I say, one of my top reads of the year!

In Your Heart starts out with one heck of a bang. Sadie comes home from work early to surprise her fiancee, only to find him having s

Ezra knows how to compliment his woman, "really, because I feel like a winner from where I’m standing! You have a nice a**!” He yelled back." Ezra knows what to do in a dire situation and gets company unexpectedly, "I laughed, biting my lip. “Uh, Ezra…you might want to hide that?” I pointed to his hard-on tenting his shorts.

4.5 stars by Jen Skewes

In Your Heart is the third book in The Willow Creek series. I love this series. This series is about the band Willow Creek which is made up of twin brothers, Mathias and Maddox, their foster brother Ezra and their close friends Hayes. Each book is about a different member of the band and the women that they fall in love with. In Your Heart is a friends to lovers romance which is one of my favorite stories to read, especially when you have two characters like Ezra and Sadie

The Willow Creek series has been such a great read so far so I just knew that In Your Heart would be just as great. And Micalea did not disappoint. I love a friends-to-lovers romance and Ezra’s and Sadie’s story was fantastic. Ezra and Sadie are best friends. They became acquainted with each other when their best friends-Maddox and Emma (book 1) fell in love. Since then, the two have become close. Well in the beginning of this story, Sadie finds a not-so-happy situation at home with her fiancé. ...more

I have a lady boner for Micalea Smeltzer. It's true. I have always loved her work but something happened while I was reading In Your Heart

You see, I read this book a week prior to writing this review. Once I was done with the book, I was so in love that I declared this book deserved 10 stars. After two days of being in an extreme funk, I decided I needed to read the book again. No author can deliver a book that perfectly. Right?!

This is officially my favorite book in the series! Ezra and Sadie can take all the stars for all I care! This was such a great “best friends to lovers” book!
“Crushing on my best friend really freaking sucked.”

Sadie and Ezra’s story was absolutely amazing. They’re best friends, but both feel attracted to each other. Of course, they’re afraid to do anything about it because they don’t want to jeopardize what they have, but when Sadie moves in with Ezra for a whil

Can everyone just agree that this book was just so freaking cute?! Out of the members of the Willow Creek band, I have to admit that Ezra's story was the one I was less looking forward to simply because I barely got to read about him in  Last To Know  and  Never Too Late . Also, Sadie was a character that I didn't fully love in the beginning of the series but now I love, especially when she's drunk—she is so funny!

I absolutely loved In Your Heart…. It was sweet and adorable and so much different than the other two books. In this book they were first best friends and both were scared to take their relationship any further. Even though they had a chemistry that was of the charts. Now like the second book in this series it was also a new adult book. We met these two characters in the first book and I already liked then in those books.

Okay so this book is about Sadie who was engaged to a huge jackass. She fou

A beautiful, emotional series. Full of so much heart, and many laughs. These characters will stick with you for a very long time.

Sadie Westbrook life just took a dramatic turn. Braden, the man she was suppose to marry, the man everyone she knew hated, betrays her. Hurt and feeling lost, and some what relived that her relationship is over. She calls up her best friend. She knows she can trust him with anything, even if she has pushed him away l

I must say I have fallen in love with this series. Each one of the guys has their qualities..Maddox is a hopeless romantic, Mathias is overprotective and Ezra is the quiet supportive one. I must say Ezra is my new favorite book boyfriend. He is everything you want. Sadie was in a bad relationship, one that everyone saw and Ezra stepped back despite what he wanted to do. He also ran to her when she needed help. He is always there to support her. Despite hiding their feelings through most of this ...more

New adult is my guilty pleasure genre. I adore it and this series has been excellent. And a romance between best friends and all the obstacles they can face together and apart oh i adore it. Ezra and Sadie are such amazing characters who are quite complex and lead very different lives, but their best friend status is what ties them so closely and it is lovely to read. That is not to say there is not angst and drama through this story but i love a healthy dose of these when reading a book it just ...more

Man, the main couple in this one were so annoying to read about, if they weren't so stupid and just talked to each other, all of the unnecessary drama could have been avoided, but they wouldn't be Sadie and Ezra without it.

Anyway, my favorites parts were reading about Emma and Maddox, and Matthias and Remy whenever they showed up (especially Matthias and Remy, they're my favorite by far, just look at how adorable they are in this book! Matthias being overprotective of Remy was cute).

I have been waiting for this story for what seems like forever. We meet both Sadie and Ezra in Last To Know which was the first book of this incredible series. Ezra is Maddox & Mathias foster brother. Sadie is Emma best friend. Sadie was the reason Emma actually met Maddox. Once Emma and Maddox got together, Ezra and Sadie ended up becoming best friends.

Sadie has been dating Braden. Nobody in the Willow Creek family likes him. Yes, that what they and me call

In Your Heart is the third book in Micalea Smeltzer's Willow Creek Series, and I have been wanting to read her books for awhile now. I have heard really great things about her, but until now hadn't had the chance to read any of Micalea's books. In Your Heart is a standalone story with interconnected characters, and it is a best friends to lovers story. I absolutely loved this book, and I couldn't put it down!

Any fan of best friend to lovers would ultimately enjoy IN YOU HEART. It's the third book of A WILLOW CREEK NOVEL by Micalea Smeltzer. It's Ezra and Sadie story. I love books that will pull at me from when the journey starts to the end. This book did just that and it's something that I would read more than once. I highly recommend this to all the friends to lovers fanatics.

Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know. My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life. Crazy is the word that best sums up my life, but it’s the good kind of crazy and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
