"Heart's Desire" by Delaney Diamond

My Rationalization:

It was a good read seeing how this second chance romance would come out this time between Nathan Crenshaw and Janice Livingston. They had once been in love but as life will have it things changed for them after Janice made a move with her job that was out of town. Now that Janice was back and Nathan wa

Heart's Desire

While I enjoyed this book, I was expecting a bit more from it. The writing didn't seem as developed as the other 2 stories in this series, which was a bit disappointing. The ending fell flat for me.

Janice and Nathan's overall attraction was a bit all over, from them being cordial one moment, to them arguing or having a disagreement the next moment.

The fact that Nathan's ex Sherilyn, whom he was willing to marry just to try to get over his strong feelings for Janice, denied his pro

💞 two heart's desired

I enjoy this author's writing and the romantic happily ever after. This story about second chances was special. Accepting a person with differences is priceless. I am going to read the two other books in this series. I liked the added bonus of Nathan becoming his brother's champion after Abram's parents death.

Loved it

Great story. Loved the chemistry between the H/h. But the book was too short for my liking making the ending very rushed. Wanted a slower build up to the final climatic scene. Ah well!

I love stories that give second chances. I love when the second romp in the sack turns out to be the charm instead of the third. The heart knows what the heart wants and Janice wanted Nathan and vise versa. Enough said, but before I finish a great story that flowed effortlessly from beginning end with a little drama and action. Great Read! ReneeG 👍

They are each other's heart's desire!!!!

I just knew that this book would put the cream on the top of a three-fold "Unparalleled Love Series" and I was definitely correct. Nathan and Janice were the last of the three former Spellman roommates to find the love they had for the men in their lives from the beginning. To be sure just like the love connections of her roommates and best friends, Nathan and Janice had their own set of issues to overcome . First their relationship fizzled four years earl

Delaney does it again, Janice and Adam's reconnection

I prolonged as long as I could in reAding the end of Janice and Nathan's story and I am so glad I did. I know they recommended not to read the Unparalleled Love Series in no particular order, but I say save this one for last. I was knew to author Stephanie Nicole Norris (Everlasting Desire) so I didn't know what to expect from her, and I think her story is a good beginner as you're being introduced to Jada, Soul (Sharon C.

Janice Livingston and Nathan Crenshaw are co-workers who were previously in a relationship. They now work together again, and naturally interact like old friends… who still low key have feelings for each other.

Janice and Nathan have a strong connection and have a lot in common, including tattoos and their love of motorcycles. There are also a lot of good reasons not to explore a relationship again: They have unresolved issues and insecurities. Most importantly, the timing is bad because Nathan

You're My Heart's Desire

I want to first say that I still and always will absolutely love me some Tomas Molina😍😍 and I love when you pull in past characters into new books. The chemistry between Nathan and Janice was off the charts and I'm glad that they reconnected their great love affair. It's crazy that Sherilyn turned down Nathan's proposal and then turned loco that he followed his heart like she suggested. I really thought that Precious was going to be a problem instead of Sherilyn. I'm glad

Delaney Diamond never disappoints, which is why I saved her book for last. I knew Janice would be a bright, vibrant character and she really was. Nathan, with his steady, calm demeanor, was the perfect match for her. That first proposal that took place kinda threw me for a loop, but it lead to Janice and Nathan revealing their feelings for each other, so it was cool.

Loved Nathan and Abram’s relationship. Couldn’t stand Sherrilyn’s crazy, wannabe PI a**. Pleasantly surprised to see Tomas Molina!

So, this was the third book I read from the Unparalleled Love Series.  Three best friends from college who all found love, and you will enjoy each book.
I will say that in Heart’s Desire Janice worked my nerve in the beginning. This second chance at love story is about Nathan & Janice, they are co-worker who had a previous relationship that did not end on good tern.  Purchase the book to find out what happen and how they found their way back to each other.

Second chance love

Second chance love stories are one of my favorite types of love stories. Nathan and Janice former lovers now co-workers have a chance at love again or they could have except he is dating someone else and she has a fear of commitment. After a refusal to a marriage proposal Nathan and Janice reconnect, but a resources does not want them to be happy. I really enjoyed their story. This is the second story in the Unparalleled Love Series, looking forward to the third and final book.

Great read

Loved Janice and Nathan's journey to love again. She acted like she can do without a man when all she wanted was to get back the love she lost two years prior to her leaving for Cali. Nathan thought he wanted to move on with sherilyn but soon found out that was a mistake on his end. The love they both suffered for each other came back months ago but neither bothered to act on it. I'm glad things ended great for all of the friends in this series of unparalleled love great series to read

My Happy Heart

I was too happy when this second chance romance was a first rate read. The collaboration between the stories was handled very well. In the story, Nathan Crenshaw and Janice Livingston once loved each other with great love and passion, until their differences pulled them apart. He tried to move on, but his heart's desires remained captive with Janice. You'll like their story too!

Great short read!

This book was short and sweet. It was amazing how Janice and Nathan both grew up with poor examples of love, but grew to love each other unconditionally. They were total opposites of each other, but complimented each other perfectly. Sherilyn was a complete psycho and Nathan really dodged a bullet when she turned down his marriage proposal. She turned him down but couldn’t handle losing him. SMH. Loved this book.

True Love never ends....

Nathan and Janice's journey to true love was impeded by childhood hurts (infidelity by their parents). What they fodnt want to be kept them from moving forward. Janice's fiance' leaving her prior to the wedding also left a hurt that kept her heart from letting Nathan in. However; when the heart desire a certain person it's hard to let go. Delaney Diamond has written another amazing story🤗🤗🤗.

Thrice As Nice

I foolishly wanted to complete all three books in the series before leaving any reviews. What can I say.... no disappointment to speak on. I will suggest that you ladies do this all over again!!
So glad Janice & Nathan found their way back to each other. Just goes to show you...the heart takes no substitutions.

Great Love Story

Loved the dynamics between the Hero and Heroine. The story had just enough drama to keep you going and the right amount situational scenes to keep your attention. Originally thinking the book was going to be too short for my expectations, but was very satisfied with length and outcome.

I picked this one up last night and couldn't put it down! Janice and Nathan's re-kindled romance has it going on. Their fiery chemistry is a real page-turner. As usual, this experienced author does not disappoint. If you're looking for a switched-on, sexy short read, diving deep on occasion? This one comes highly recommended. Loved it! ...more

Never Run From A good man

Nathan is a good man,but he should of follow his heart.
Janice was scared to say what she wants,just as Nathan.

You want Nathan and you want to hurt him because he went back with Janice when your heart is for a man it will never go away.

Nathan and Janice were together in the past. But Janice allowed baggage from her past muddy her vision and doubt what she was building. Fate stepped in several years later and allowed her a second chance at true love, but it wasn't without consequence. Luckily, in the end love still prevailed. Great read. ...more

I loved that Janice went after what she wanted making the first move. Now it was still awhile, a loooong while before they finally got it together, but I enjoyed reading about their journey. Their chemistry was hot and their passion was potent. This was a great love story!

Great Series!

Nathan tried to not be like his dad but ended up hurting someone unintentionally and there were consequences. Nathan and Janice book is about suspense, drama, love, and reconnecting. Nothing I would not expect from Ms. Diamond. Another great book that catches you from page 1.

A Quick Read

This book wasn't boring, but it wasn't really exciting either. There was the obligatory HEA, but it was a flat read, nothing made me go wow. I still want to know what happened with the first contractor, did she get a refund, was he price gauging her??? Too many unanswered questions.
