She never wants to go home again.
For Jess Morgan, Destiny Falls holds too many painful memories. Nine years ago, a logging accident near the remote timber town killed her dad and her high school sweetheart. To make matters worse, her mother quickly sought comfort with another man. That choice tore Jess apart and drove her to seek a life far away. But now fate steps in, and family obligations force her return home. Before long, she’s convinced that persuading her mom to live with her in Toronto will repair their shattered bond. However, she doesn’t count on a long-ago friend re-entering her life and challenging her convictions.
Rugged forester Adam Wright believes in family, roots, and not running from heartache. Now, all he wants is to help Jess break down the walls of the lonely sanctuary she’s built for herself and heal her past hurts. It’s not until she rejects his plans for their future that he realizes his persistence is pushing her away—not at all what he intends.
Has he lost his chance? Or can he convince Jess that where she truly belongs is with him…forever?
I downloaded Where She Belongs from Amazon when I found it for free in January of this year. I’m trying to rotate in and read at least one of the free books I’ve downloaded every other book I read. I liked this book okay. I just couldn’t really get into the heroine. Yes, she lost her dad and her boyfriend/almost fiance at basically the same time when she was younger, but that was 9 years ago. I don’t understand what that has to do with anything in this story. How does that make her not want to come home? I was very frustrated with her throughout most of the book. Only in the last two chapters did I not want to slap the crap out of her. She did make a grand gesture though. It made up for at least some of her stubbornness.
Adam, such a great guy, put up with a lot from Jess. I don’t think I could’ve done it. I would’ve just moved on. He was a very sweet guy and I’m glad he finally got his HEA.
