Book Review: The Heart Knows What the Heart Wants

The Heart Knows What the Heart Wants by Lori L. Clark: Estelle "Star" Falconé, a thirty-year-old tattooed bartender, was once a free-spirited dreamer who dabbled in astrology for fun and secretly dreamed of becoming a rock-star some day.

Twenty-one-year-old Shane Harper was once the star of his high school basketball team. With a full ride scholarship, his dream was to play college basketball and study astronomy. When a tragic car accident permanently sidelines his basketball career, college is out of the question.

Sparks fly when their two worlds collide.

Can a relationship survive between a thirty-year-old starry-eyed woman who's on the run from an extremely dangerous man, and a twenty-one-year-old science guy who's hell-bent on protecting her at all cost?

TeriLyn's thoughts: **ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest review**

The Heart Knows What the Heart Wants is a story of a woman re-discovering what her journey is in life all the while helping a man heal from his painful past. Ms. Clark's writing is engaging and easy to read. I sat down for a relaxing evening and this book was the right story to lose yourself in for a few hours. I enjoyed the setting of this book and the camaraderie of the people in Red Vale and the friendly nature of all the characters except the villain. We meet Estelle 'Star' at the beginning and she's lost. I don't want to say broken because Star is the type of heroine who just continues to overcome and grow stronger. She doesn't see it immediately, of course, it takes the help of a certain man for her recognize the change in herself. I enjoyed her character; smart, beautiful, witty, and charming. She meets Shane Harper who, despite his younger age, is an old soul. Throughout their story he is reflective, funny, and compassionate. The bond starts with a friendship where each find comfort and peace with each other. Their commonalities surprise them both and their relationship blooms from the solid foundation they've formed. The only thing I would have liked more was a little more romance in their story. I liked how the relationship ultimately developed, but a bit more time with them in a romantic capacity would have made a bigger impact. This is a great story of fighting for what you believe and living for you. I love the epilogue and hope we get another look into the lives of Shane and Star.
