5 stars for A Heart Restrained by Jennifer Wilck #romance #newrelease #bookreview
Title: A Heart Restrained
Author: Jennifer Wilck
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Caleb Zeno, a wealthy and successful media mogul, refuses to allow emotions into any aspect of his life, especially his entertainment corporation. When his company’s lifestyle website runs into competition from a small boutique company, the most logical solution is to buy out his rival.
Fiona Hamilton’s lifestyle website succeeds due to her loving and caring treatment of her clients, who have become like family to her. She has no desire to sell to anyone, much less a tattooed, muscled, automaton.
At odds professionally, Caleb and Fiona come together as a favor for Caleb’s sister. Sparks fly and sexual chemistry abounds. But Caleb can't let go of his abusive past and be the man Fiona needs, and she is unwilling to risk independence and financial security for anything less than a perfect happily ever after. Can they put their differences aside to find a viral kind of love?
Business rivals find unexpected love, but can they release the past to form a great future together? A Heart Restrained is a new release by Jennifer Wilck, one of my favorite authors, and I couldn’t get enough. The storyline may be familiar to moviegoers, but Jennifer Wilck puts her own spin on it. The emotional tension between Caleb and Fiona makes for entertaining reading. The romance is complex and extremely well-written.
In this romance, it starts and ends with the characters. I connected so much with Fiona. As a little fish in a big pond business owner, I could relate to Fiona and her dilemma. Caleb is big business and she’s not. Fiona is a wonderfully-drawn heroine who deserves a man who’ll treat her right and love her without restraint. But can Caleb be that man?
The writing drawn in the reader with its descriptive narration. Every emotion, every nuance is poignantly detailed. It’s a very emotional tale with just the right amount of conflict, tension, and romance. You will be rooting for this couple.
Jennifer Wilck has penned another beautiful romance. Brilliantly written, A Heart Restrained will tug at your heartstrings. I strongly recommend this book to all romance readers.

Jennifer started telling herself stories as a little girl when she couldn’t fall asleep at night. Pretty soon, her head was filled with these stories and the characters that populated them. Even as an adult, she thinks about the characters and stories at night before she falls asleep or walking the dog. Eventually, she started writing them down. Her favorite stories to write are those with smart, sassy, independent heroines; handsome, strong and slightly vulnerable heroes; and her stories always end with happily ever after.
