Compelled by fate, will he sacrifice everything to save her?

Dylan McBride has never liked hiding—from his fans, the press, or his father. He’s left with no other choice after his father threatens Heaven’s life. Protecting his wife and unborn child is the only thing that matters. He’d do anything to save them. Even tolerate a connection she shares with her Keeper, the man sworn to save her life. The man he used to call his friend. Layne’s struggling with his pyrokinetic abilities, as well as accepting his role as Heaven’s Keeper. As if kissing her didn’t make things awkward enough, he learns that their connection is more complicated than he ever imagined. So complicated, it affects not only his mind, but also his soul. Though he’s taken to his Keeper duties, Heaven senses a battle between Layne’s heart and soul. A battle that’s preventing him from accessing his abilities. There’s only one sure way to help him. Their friendship must deepen. But nothing’s ever easy, and she soon discovers there’s a thin line between love, hate, and What the Heart Takes.

This 3rd installment in the Soulmate series was a bit of an eye opener. There was a lot of information about abilities, history, and connections between people revealed. The characters and the story line are just has engaging as the first 2 books in the series. Drama, magic, and lots of emotions will take the reader on one heck of a ride.

Dylan and Heaven are married and expecting their first child but what about Layne? Well things get a bit complicated as the three of them navigate the world of seekers and keepers. Dylan and Heaven are soulmates and a love that is out of this world but as Heaven’s keeper, Layne has a part of Heaven’s soul as well. He spends a large part of this book trying to figure out his abilities and dealing with a lot of emotions. The tension was so thick between these 3 at times that I could feel it while I was reading. The personalities of the characters are all over the place yet they find a way to get along. I have really become attached to all of the characters.

As everyone bands together, things are starting to get real. With attacks from those that have turned evil, pregnancy, a few sweet and steamy moments, a wide gambit of emotions, and a lot of new information, this book is packed full of everything it takes to get you on the edge of your seat and eager for more. This was a fantastic read and I look forward to the 4th book in just a few months. 5 out of 5 books!
