5 The Heart Wants What it Wants Stars
So when I hear that this book was a Taboo read I was in! When I heard that K Webster loved this story I was in! WOW Kristi did has never let me down!
Taboo - yes
Love story - yes
Cult Wrenching - yes
Leave a mark on your heart - yes!!!!!!
Please note yes this is a taboo story but if you read it for what it really is- it is a romance story in it's rawest form. Readers love is love!! They heart wants what the heart wants!
Once in a while I find a beautiful love story and I have found that rarest gem in this story! Belen has grown up with Lucky. He has been a part of her life since her first memory. Belen has loved Lucky for as long as she remembers. She knows it is a love that will never, could never happen yet she loves in secret, she loves from afar.
Lucky has loved Belen his whole life. He knows there is a pull there for Belen but he cannot act on this. He must stay away not matter how bad his heart tells him she is the one!
When you can not have the one you want you focus on what will keep you busy, what will keep your mind from wondering to the what if's of life.
I laughed, I cried, and I wanted these two to find a way to figure it all out and find their HEA.
Mara has written a beautiful love story that removes to ugliness and the modern stigma that society has with certain love. She has found a way to make the social ugliness actually thrive and struggle a only a pure love can.
I highly recommend this story, read beyond that lines that society has predefined for you and decide with your own thoughts how beautiful this story truly is! Understand Lucky's struggle to be a better man. Understand Belen's struggle to find out why she is wired the way she is. Understand that their love is not ugly is is pure and true! Love and Cry with them as the grown.
