Belong by Jennifer Foor Blog Tour #4star #review




Ten years ago I fell in love with a married woman. I walked away so she could be happy, moving across the country to make sure I put space between us. We severed ties, and I promised myself I wouldn't look back. 

Since then I committed to someone else, and we have a child and a life many would wish for. Except, it's never been enough for me. There's always been something missing; something I never wanted to admit.

With my own marriage failing, I'm forced to go back to my hometown to bury the man who raised me. I never expected to see her there, and nothing could prepare me for what would happen the moment my arms wrapped around hers again.

This is  my first book in the series and I really feel like this has affected how I rated this book. I didn't realize that this was the second in the series and it continued the story line from the previous book. That's not saying I didn't enjoy the book because I did. I just feel like I would have enjoyed seeing Rachel and Chad getting their HEA if I had understood their history a bit more. 

Had I known their past, I probably would have been more forgiving of Chad. Leaving his wife one day and jumping into the arms of another so quickly bothered me. Then to find out she was married when they had their first relationship. Well, let's just say I wasn't happy with them.  Now that I have read reviews of others and understand their story better, I think I would have been more connected to the characters and been rooting for them earlier. 

Although this book can be read as a stand alone,  I would recommend reading Bereft first. I feel like it would make this good stand alone into a great book. 




"You have every right to assume this can't be anything more than a temporary affair. I don't blame you for being cautious, but there is something I want you to know."

She turned around, finally looking right at me with those hesitant eyes. "What?"

"I still love you." I swallowed the lump in my throat as the words came out, silently praying she wouldn't force me to leave. It wasn't every day that I told someone other than my wife I loved them, but in this instance it was the truest statement I'd ever made. "I feel like I've loved you for a lifetime. 
It’s true. I have loved my wife, but it’s not the same. It’s always been you, Rach. You’re the only woman I know I’ll never be able to let go of. Staying away was my only option. I did it to protect both of our lives, but there’s nothing standing in the way anymore. Please don't deny us a second chance." I paused one more time. "I need you, just as much as I think you need me."

Her shoulders relaxed, and I watched her purse fall from her grip and hit the concrete ground. She shrugged while staring into my eyes. Her lips were trembling, allowing me to almost sense the connection between us. "I'm not strong enough to be with you again. I can't handle anymore heartache. Being close to you scares me, because I’m tired of the pain and suffering."

I took two steps forward, breaking the distance between us. "I'm not capable of hurting you again, Rach. If you give me this chance I promise I won't let you down. Let me be your friend again, and whatever comes with it will be determined by both of us."
