    Warning: Material is hot

    I just adore all the books in Sarina Bowen's True North series and Heartland is no different. There's a swoony hero, a leading lady you'll want to be best friends with, descriptions of amazing food that will have your stomach growling, and a love story for the ages. Dylan, the youngest of the 4 Shipley siblings, is away at college. He is loving his new fond independence, but is still under the stress of responsibility from his family's farm. And feeling the weight of guilt that might not even be his to carry. So what if Dylan likes to make himself feel better by partying it up with beautiful women? Chastity hasn't had the easiest- or most normal- life. She grew up in a religious cult. After finally escaping a few years earlier, Chastity was taken in by Isaac and Leah, and is just starting to live her life. She's struggling in school, but is fortunate enough to have the support of her best friend, Dylan. Unfortunately, Chastity has been in love with Dylan since she first laid eyes on him. So while she's loving being closer to him while they are away at college, she also has to watch Dylan drink and smoke and be intimate with girls that are not her. Because there is no way that Dylan feels the same way. Right? First and foremost, I LOVE the friendship the two of them have. Dylan is very overprotective about Chastity, and puts her in front of everyone else. They just have this effortless connection. They simply get each other like no one else does. And when they finally cross that line from friends to more- get ready for fireworks. Serious fireworks. It's a delicious slow burn that is steamy, romantic, angsty and may cause your kindle to melt just a little bit. And of course, it was great to see everyone else from previous books. Going back to the Shipley farm kind of feels like going home. I particularly love the evolving relationship that Dylan has with his brother, Griffin. All in all Dylan and Chastity's book was everything that I hoped it would be, and more! Note: Every book in this series can be read completely as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading them all!

    Fall in love along with Dylan & Chastity!

    Incredible story of a broken hero and a fierce but vulnerable heroine. Dylan and Chastity were not at all what I expected, but were exactly what the book needed. Dylan's playboy facade covers up years of pain, guilt, and insecurity, while Chastity's sassy exterior masks both visible and invisible scars from her upbringing in a cult. Expect to want to give Dylan hugs and Chastity high fives while cheering on this unlikely but perfect couple!

    Very Good Read!

    Heartland was a very enjoyable read! Dylan and Chastity are great and easy to like characters. I felt bad for both of them at times when things weren't going their way and learning more about what Chastity has been through. They're such an adorable couple and perfect for each other, one of them just doesn't see it right away. I loved seeing how they grew to be more than just friends and the sometimes awkward situations. I was not a fan of Griffin in this book. He was quite inconsiderate and rude and I didn't care for it. He gets better and becomes less of his grumpy self luckily. Other than him and another female character that was very rude, I enjoyed the rest of the group and found then very entertaining. I'm very curious as to how Daphne's book is going to go based on things that developed in Heartland.

    4 Stars for Dylan & Chastity

    Heartland is Book 7 in Sarina Bowen’s True North Series and is Dylan Shipley’s story. I have loved this series from the first book and couldn't wait to dive into Dylan's story. This is a beautiful friends to lovers romance that will give you all the feels. The perfect combination of heart, emotion, humor and passion. I love the family dynamic on the Shipley farm. They are all so support and caring of each other and I felt completely emmersed in their world as I was reading. Dylan is off in college and works on the weekends at the Shipley Farm. He is a little lost on where is fits in, whether on the Shipley farm full time or something else. The death of his father has hit him hard. He is harbouring some guilt and I really felt for him, although there were also times where I found myself frustrated with him and his immature man-whoring ways but by the end we see huge growth with him which I adored. Chastity has grown up in a cult. We previously meet her in Keepsake. She escapes the cult and is working to figure out life outside of it. Dylan & Chastity are best friends but Chastity has always wanted more from him. I loved their friendship so much. I loved how mentoring Dylan was with Chastity , he was also sweet and protective. I loved their young love and the progression of them moving from friends to lovers. Another incredible book in the True North Series and I cannot wait for the next one. 4 stars. *ARC received in exchange of an honest review*

    A total must read

    If I see Sarina Bowen's name I read it! She is definitely a one click author for me and this book was one of her best ones yet. The True North are some of my favorite books by Sarina because they take place in New England, where I live.  I love the accurate New England feel the books have plus the characters are incredibly believable and of course likable. This series is a great combination of sexy and endearing with a bit of drama tossed in and Heartland was no exception to this recipe. Dylan was not a character I thought I needed a book from but wow was I glad to read his story and now I am a MASSIVE Dylan fan.  He is way more complex than I thought and I love him so much. But the true hero of this book for me was Chastity I really felt for her and how she struggled to deal with her past and present difficulties. If you enjoyed this book you should absolutely read the others in this series because this cast of characters and the world they live in are deeply engaging. My one word of warning is read this book in public with caution as it is delightfully steamy!
