What the Heart Needs

This is the second book in the Soulmate series of Kelli McCracken.

I’m a little disappointed in the execution of some of the events in the book. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it. I loved nearly every word of it.

However, I feel that there was more emphasis placed on the feeling of suspense in the novel than actually getting to the point of what this book was about. There were many things that were dropped on the reader that weren’t really hinted to in the first book. Which is actually one thing I really loved. I loved how Mrs. McCracken went deeper into the characters. We see so much more of the characters in the story. Getting more in tuned with their thoughts while discovering a little more about the psychic abilities everyone had.

There were numerous hints in the book and by the time it ended, I had already figured everything out and was just waiting for the story to unfold to my suspicions. ┬áThis is what I think played into me not feeling satisfied. ┬áThat and there just wasn’t enough of some of the new stuff Mrs. McCracken brought in.

I felt like I could have read more. I wanted to read more. To me, there wasn’t much closure.

I want the next book.

I want to know what happens next.

I feel like there is something big Mrs. McCracken is building up to and it makes me want to keep reading more. But there isn’t any more!

And although I’m not an expert on sex scenes, there’s a lot in this book (at least it felt like it to me), and though they were done naturally throughout the plot and for the characters, I did feel like some of it was a bit awkward.

All in all, this was a great read. It continued from the first with little confusion and, as I’ve mentioned, left me wanting more. I definitely will be buying the next book in this series. I’m invested in the story. I want to know what happens next!
