Wild Heart (Hollywood Hearts, #4) by Belinda Williams was hooking, fun, fresh, and down right addicting.
My first read by this author, and for this series, but don’t get put off by the number, this book reads as a standalone. I have to say I fell easy into this read. Well written and just, I don’t know, there was just something different about the tone and pacing that just captured me right from the start.
This book, man, I’m going to be blunt, I loved it. I think what made it so special, was that the MC’s were in their 40’s and brought a lot of life experience to the table. It played well into the second chance plot, and made it that much more believable. I loved so much about this book, that I can’t even right now. All the elements captured me, the romance, the mystery, the characters. I could see this book adapted into a movie.
So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval that you will fall hard for this gem of a read.

Wild Heart (Hollywood Hearts Book 4)
By Belinda Williams
Wild Heart (Hollywood Hearts Book 4) is a novel by Belinda Williams. While I have not read any other books by this author it was indeed a nice introduction to her writing style. With this book we get romance, suspense, and some action all in the one book. Because of this we get one great storyline. I did find that both Cole and Faith’s characters were likeable, and I am sure you will find the same. You will also find that this book is a nice easy read and you will not want to put the book down once you start. I didn’t have a problem in reading this book as a standalone and would love to go back to book one and read the series. Grab yourself drink of something and settle in for a really good read.
Wild Heart (Hollywood Hearts Book 4) by Belinda Williams is a romantic comedy/suspense featuring some intensely attractive characters. Faith Martin and Cole Cooper have a past with them running into one another years later. Every time these two are in scenes together, the pages sizzle and the words are waiting to burn off the page. Belinda Williams did a great job in delivering a story rife with attraction, remorse, drama and maybe even a bit of adventure. Wild Heart was a great addition to the Hollywood Hearts series and was a great read!!

Wild Heart was a great read and a wonderful introduction to a new to me author also. I thought that the story was entertaining and engaging. There was romance, mystery and action all rolled into one story. I really enjoyed reading about Faith and Cole, they were both great characters, I particularly liked Faith – I thought that she was strong, independent and it was nice to find a female lead with these qualities! She wasn’t one to be fawning over man all the time! Both characters were relatable, the author made them feel very real – something I love in a book! I am a bit of a sucker for second chance romance stories and Wild Heart was definitely a wonderful example of this genre.
I would absolutely recommend this story and I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future!

Rated 5 stars
This is ah-mazing! I love this story!! And don’t get me started on the characters! They were all perfect (even the irritating ones). I was easily brought into this story and I basically read it in one day (much to my families discontent). Very hard to put down! Most times I am a “fan” of the male lead but this time it was easily a tie between the to MC.
Cole is one hot hottie with amazing blue eyes! Stuntman, father, rancher, and owns a winery who never forgot his first love. Now he only wants to get her back. An-tic-i-pa-tion! I don’t know whether to say how much I love it or hate it. But boy! It’s so good when things heat up I got tummy flutters. I just want to say Day-um that was one heck of a kiss!
Faith is the perfect character. She has had a rough past and has built a tough exterior with a witchy persona to survive. She has so much room for growth! Even though she is sassy she is soft on the inside…it’s just deep. Will Cole be able to dig deep enough?
I have not read the previous books and I had no problems with this one. It can easily be a stand alone. We do meet many of her friends who I assume were main characters in previous stories. This really pulled my interest into putting those on my TBR.
WILD HEART is book 4 and the first one I’ve read in the “Hollywood Hearts” series. It is absolutely a stand-alone and I am invested enough in the secondary characters that I have added books 1-3 to my TBR list.
The author wrote a very rich story. It’s full of friendships, second chances, first loves, family of origin vs family of choice and so so much more. The characters are all well developed and the story flows well from beginning to end. I looked at the cover AFTER reading the story and was surprised by the couple chosen to represent the story. They look nothing like I imagined. That’s one of the reasons I love reading so much; we can all interpret the words our own way.
One of the things I liked the most about this story is the strength of the female protagonist and the decisions the male protagonist made in his life to keep it “normal”. The thing that surprised me about this story is the emotion it pulled out of me. I cried a few ugly tears very close to the end (I won’t tell you why or exactly when) and that was unexpected for me. Nice job Ms. Williams!
I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it.

Wild Heart (Hollywood Hearts Book 4) by Belinda Williams
First, while this is book 4, I was able to read as a standalone. This follows a different couple than previous books it would seem and they do gloss over a little of what those characters have been through.
I’ll be honest and say I didn’t like Faith to start with but then I saw the cracks in her armor, and felt she was more relatable to me as the story went on.
I loved the mystery and twists and turns this book took. I didn’t suspect the right person and that’s a good mystery writer to me!
Can I get a Cole? I liked him from the start and how honest he was and funny too.
You won’t be disappointed with this book at all.

The story Wild Heart (Hollywood Hearts Book 4) by Belinda Williams is a wonderful book that I loved reading. It pulled me in from the very beginning and didn’t let me go until I had finished the final page. I loved reading about the characters of Faith Martin and Cole Cooper. Faith is an actress who is strong, independent, and stubborn. She also is in the need of a change. She finds herself in Sonoma Valley, CA where she finds a man from her past, Cole. Cole has carved out a life for himself as a stuntman, rancher, and winemaker. He has now found himself again face to face with Faith. These two have a past. She now has an opportunity to star and direct an action film. He is asked to be the stunt coordinator. What does the future hold for Cole and Faith? Read this book to find out. There are moments in this story that are mysterious/suspenseful and had me wondering what was going to happen next. As the book progressed, I found myself caring about Faith and Cole and wanted them to find happiness. There are many other characters that I enjoyed reading about. The story had my emotions going up and down the entire time I was reading. Faith and Cole’s story is one that you don’t want to miss out reading. Highly recommended.
I’m a sucker for books like this. Absolutely loved every page. Intrigue mixed with chemistry sprinkled with romance – yes please!! I loved the main characters. I was laughing out loud and cheering them on through every trial and success. Just a great book and one that I will absolutely enjoy again as soon as I can!
