Belong - Seven Year Itch #3
by Jennifer Foor
Release Day: November 23
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.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!
What I say: Belong is a standalone but you can gain greater insight into the backstory of Chad and Rachel by reading Bereft first. There may be spoilers from the previous books in the Seven Year Itch series.
It's no secret that I'm not a fan of books involving cheating and I honestly wasn't a fan of Grayson in Bereft. I personally couldn't justify Grayson's actions and I wouldn't have been as accepting as Rachel was so I was extremely happy to see Chad was getting his own story in Belong.
Although there is cheating involved in Belong, it didn't upset me or strike me in the same way as it did in previous books. I think this was because the story is really emotional and I felt as though the events were positive and part of a greater cause (although of course there are lots of naughty scenes).
I always felt as though Chad's story was unfinished and that he deserved a better ending. Although events don't exactly happen as Chad expects, he decides to take the chance he missed out on before and is detained to do the best by everybody. I loved his relationship with this daughter and Rachel made me smile.
I did feel as though certain events were a little convenient but I still found myself hoping for a HEA. Some of the events are really sad but others are heartwarming and sweet. I'm still anti-cheating and I'm not sure where I stand about certain grey areas but I liked Chad.
3.5 Stars in my Sky!
