As with the previous books in the Soulmate Series, I was pulled in from the start. Each installment picks up from the last and brings to light more secrets.

The sage surrounding Heaven, Dylan and Layne is far from over. So much has happened in the year they’ve known each other. Their lives were not what they thought and they keep learning new truths about their pasts, heritage and destinies. It’s a bit heartbreaking for me to see them go through so much and with What the Heart Seeks I see how al

~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

I shouldn't be surprised and awed by the sheer talent Kelli McCracken possesses but every new book I read by her just shocks me. She knows how to weave an incredible story around you and leave you craving more and more. Her characters are strong and independent with a fire inside them. This book blew me away and I was left with my mouth hanging open in shock and awe. The explosive story is one that has been building since What the

I find myself in awe of Kelli’s writing skills. It is apparent that she has put much thought, attention to detail, and care into the creation of these incredible characters and the storyline. She has an astonishing imagination.

For someone who NEVER delves into the paranormal genre, I cannot wait to read more and look forward to seeing where this inventive and riveting story leads Dylan, Heaven and Layne.

This latest installment of the series is, once again, action packed . As the characters continue to evolve and new ones are introduced, we are further ensconced in this world within our world. And, as the characters evolve, so do my feeling for them. Where I have always liked Dylan, but started to feel for Layne, now I am wholeheartedly in Dylan's corner! Yes, he may make mistakes (some really bad!) but how can he not when everyone he had called family and friend turns on him and does not seem t ...more

This book had my jaw dropping on more than one occasion! Did not even see half of what happened happening, I found myself at times wanting to be inside this book and giving a good piece of my mind ha! That is how invested I became with these characters. Please can someone get me my own Layne?!

I am a massive fan of the soulmate series since book 1 and each book has absolutely exceeded expectations! The twists and turns has you going crazy at times but still had me turning those pages at a ridicu

Brilliant! I was not able to put this book down, I just kept on reading. Again Kelli did an amazing job with this fifth book. There was a lot of twist and turns when you least expect it. The story was captivating and I just got to read what happens next. It surprised me how the story went 'cause it wasn't what I thought it will be(in a good way), but I really enjoyed and loved how Kelli wrote this book. From the first book to this one it was just amazing and did I already mentioned brilliant?Yes ...more

I loved #4 so much, I went out and borrowed this one and loved it even more!
Surprise after surprise greet our beloved characters in this installment of the series. Some questions will be answered and more will arise. You'll meet some new characters and have a change of heart about some old ones, some will rise and some will fall. I was on the edge of my seat and didn't want to put it down. I wait with baited breath on #6.

I'm upgrading this bc of the switch in antiheroes. Its good to keep the readers on their toes and was my favorite aspect of the series. I also like Layne(underdog) and didint like how Dylan behaved even in early books(too jealous and selfish if it didint fit with his perceptions).
But it still made me skim, couldn't keep my interest bc it was too sweet overall-the grittiness didint seem realistic(Kelly was trying too hard)

This series is one of my favorite series! This book did not disappoint as it kept me hooked from the start!! It was so beautifully written that I went through the gauntlet of emotions right along with the characters. This one is now my new favorite in the series. If you have never read this series, I suggest you pick up the first book in this series, as you will not be disappointed! I can't wait for the next one to come out!!

I just want to say this series is absolutely amazing. I love how while reading I feel myself falling into the story and getting lost. The secrets and twists and turns keep this story so interesting and kept me glued to my seat reading. Amazing story!!!!!

Three stars!!

I liked the paranormal twists, and characters in this story, just like the rest of the series. However, just like the others it is annoying to not have an ending. Lastly, even though I like the series, I also think this would be better characterized as a young adult series. Which is some what disappointing.

Just wow! So many secrets revealed. You will love it. It's so unpredictable with all the twists. Heaven, Dylan & Layne! This is my favorite series! I highly recommend it.

Thank you, Kelli! You are a gifted writer. I've enjoyed all your books. I CANNOT WAIT FOR BOOK 6!!!

I'm still hanging on there and yes, I'm gonna read the final book cause I want to see how this mess is cleared up.
Beyond this series, I don't think this kinda story is my cup of tea.

Loved this book. I'm a Dylan fan and it won't change. I'm enjoying everything he loves. Love his character with every twist and turn. I just feel for him because of what he has to go through. But I love what he's doing to other characters.
Lots more answers in this one. I highly recommend it. Give this series a chance you just might fall in love with it.

All I can say is another awesome "chapter" in this wonderful series. I just couldn't believe some of the things we learned in this book that just blew the previous thoughts and understandings out of the water. Such powerful writing that includes suspense, fantasy, sensuality, sexuality along with people being real. If you have read the others, hold on to your socks because this is going to blow your mind. If you haven't read an of the books in this series...don't start with this one, start at th ...more
