It was a chance to follow my heart.
With my camera and an around-the-world ticket,
I arrived in Stockholm with a plan
to satisfy my wanderlust
to build my dream career.

Then I met Niklas,
my hot, moody neighbor
with questionable manners and a fresh gash over his eye.

I thought I knew where I was going
when I left my old life behind.
But what if my heart wants
two different things

Sissy's Romance Book Review
What the Heart Wants by Rebecca Hunter is book one in the Foreign Hearts Series. This starts the story of Niklas and Caroline. Caroline takes off for Stockholm where she meets her hot neighbor. Sparks fly but its a slow burn of a take off but its a good read. This book doesn't end their story as this author will be giving up more to come.

This is the first book by Rebecca Hunter that I have read and I am happy to say it won’t be my last. The book did start off kinda slow but I was ok with that because once the story picks up, it is hard to put down. You get pulled into the emotions that the both characters are feeling. You want to root for the characters to find their happiness. I can’t wait to dive into the next book.

I received an ARC of this book from the Author. While I’m thankful for the opportunity, the gesture has in no way influenced my review.

So, when I saw the offer for an ARC of this book, I looked the book up. I read the blurb and there was a strangely there interest even though blurb reveals just a little bit. When I started reading however, I found that with each page I was more and more engrossed in Niklas and Caroline’s story.

Their relationship has been intense since day numero uno. Yes they’r

3.5 stars ~ Caroline is a photographer looking forward to traveling after realizing she had put it off too long for the wrong guy. Her first stop - Stockholm, Sweden, where she encounters Niklas, a notorious hockey player that makes her question everything.
Caroline and Niklas have an instant attraction to each other. I just wanted a bit more of a connection to shine through. I wanted to understand their connection a little better. There was a lot of mystery to Niklas, but it didn't come off as i

"Finally, he touched my skin. A spark of hot desire simmered though me, strong and unexpected. I drew in a sharp breath, and he stepped back immediately."

I fell in love with Caroline and Niklas almost immediately when starting this book. I have always wanted to do what Caroline is and just drop everything and hop on a plane. I loved that she was able to get away from a bad relationship and put herself first. I also love the angsty heroes like Niklas is. He was the perfect amount of brooding and

4 out of 5 stars!
I enjoyed this book as a light read, and it didn’t hurt that I shared a name with the protagonist. Niklas and Caroline have good chemistry and from Rebecca’s way of telling the story, I could empathize with their problems. The reason I gave it a 4 was because I feel like they were missing something. Even though I was drawn in by the writing, their struggles and overcoming them, and the character development, I didn’t feel as connected to them as I wanted to. I think it’s more of

I received and ARC in exchange for an honest review. Great read a bit slow to the start but when it picks up you get engrossed. I was a bit bummed a the ending.

I really enjoyed this book! The characters are likable and their connection is amazing. I loved the way the writer captured their intense feelings towards each other. It is one of the few books that I could lose myself in and only looked up once I have finished it. Good read!

I received a copy of this book for an open and honest review..I did enjoy this book, it took me a little while to get into it, I'd say maybe a few chapters but once it got going it took off and was really great.
I thought it was a very well written book about love, change and soul searching, I'd say it was very maturely written but that's not what I want to get across, I don't mean it's old, it was very smartly written the characters had such a good depth and were very together and real.
