You Belong With Me | Book Review


Realtor Hannah Thornton has many talents. Unfortunately, selling houses in the town where her family name is practically poison isn't one of them. When a business tycoon determines to raze historic homes in the small town of Heritage, Michigan, and replace them with a strip mall, Hannah resolves to stop him. She sets about helping Heritage win a restoration grant that will put the town back on the map--and hopefully finally repay the financial debt Hannah's mother caused the town. But at first no one supports her efforts--not even her best friend, Luke.

Luke Johnson may have grown up in Heritage, but as a foster kid he never truly felt as if he belonged. Now he has a chance to score a job as assistant fire chief and earn his place in the town. But when the interview process and Hannah's restoration project start unearthing things from his past, Luke must decide if belonging is worth the pain of being honest about who he is--and who he was.

From the moment I heard about You Belong With Me by Tari Faris, I knew I had to read it. I am a lover of all (er, most) things romance, and it sounded like a swoon-worthy story I would enjoy. Luckily, it did not leave me disappointed.

Hannah Thornton determines to revitalize her small town of Heritage, Michigan—and perhaps redeem her tarnished name. Her best friend Luke Johnson wants a place to belong, but is not sure that place is Heritage—unless he can land a particular job. Secrets and sparks fly as the story between the pair unfolds (with a secondary romance, too!), and they just might get the second chance they need.

You Belong With Me is an utter delight. With themes of belonging and second chances, believable (though frustrating, sometimes) characters, and pitch-perfect chemistry, Faris delivers a story that left me wanting to read more. Contemporary romance readers, definitely pick up this book.


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
