Review: Wicked Hearts by Amber Kelly (Poplar Hearts #3)


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wordsmith Publicity.

Third time's the charm in Amber Kelly's Poplar Hearts series! I loved the first two novels, Rustic Hearts and Stone Hearts, but this third and latest addition to this small-town series has definitely turned out to be my favorite (so far) and for good reason. This is a friends-to-lovers romance with some falling-for-a-best-friend's-sibling added to the mix and Kelly meshes the two together so well, offering up a story that's sweet and sassy with the evolving relationship being kept secret.

When Elowyn Young's parents passed away, she and her older brother, Braxton, were taken in by family. She was afforded countless opportunities to give into her whims, but maybe the time has come for her to fully spread her wings and find her place in this world. The last thing she wants is to be saddled down by domesticity and commitment. She's a bit wicked and a whole lot of wild, and the only who stirs her feelings into a frenzy is Walker Reid--someone who's considered part of their family as well as her brother's best friend.

I thoroughly enjoyed this third installment in the Poplar Hearts, and the connection between Elle and Walker was a strong one. I enjoyed seeing their relationship develop from friendship to more, as they realized that what they were feeling towards one another had changed over time. There were a couple of different points of conflict, and I'm glad that the author didn't gloss over those and gave it the appropriate resolutions. Wicked Hearts gets five stars. I can't wait for book four! 🖤
