Where I Belong is the first in the Alabama Summer series and it starts with Ben and Mia. Two people who could not stand each other when kids. He teased and picked on her turning her feelings to hate for him. But that was years ago. People change, right? Feelings do too, right?
I love Ben and Mia so much. The opening was HOT as heck and it continues throughout the book. I also love the supporting characters that are already creating a scene for upcoming books. I love the easy and accepting relationships between friends and siblings. This series has caught my attention so well that midway in this book I was anxious to start the next one to see what happens.
As my friends recommended this author, I feel compelled to say the same as them, "Read and you'll thank me later." I mean, who doesn't love a alpha, inked, dirty talking cop? Do I have your attention now?

What I Need
SPOILER ALERT: There were a couple things that bothered me though... after her mother dies, she finds out the man she loves got shot, and she immediately leaves to go to him. I guess I find it hard to believe she'd leave what appeared to be less than an hour after you're mother's death you'd rush off like that. Especially after you just got done beating yourself up because you weren't there for her when she got sick. Plus it only mentioned that the aunt was going to take care of everything, but never mentioned going back for the funeral or anything. After all the talk about leaving mom for the summer, and all the guilt she felt, I felt her actions were a bit unbelievable. I know she was dead, (and her boyfriend of a month had been shot and she was worried) but it didn't really show her grieving.
But other than that one complaint, I really liked and enjoyed the story and look forward to reading more of the series.
24 y/o Mia Corelli is a stunning beauty. When she decides to give up her V-card to a stranger in a bar at her old hometown she's visiting, she never dreamt it would turn out to be the butt she longed to never see again. Her arch enemy. And as for Ben, payback sucks. The girl he once couldn't get far enough away from, is now the woman he can't get close enough to.
This was a highly entertaining and humorous, fast paced, sweet story. Witty dialogue told in 1st person with dual POV's. Erotic steam, explicit adult language and weak, but good controversy. The downside is the three problems facing Ben and Mia that are resolved too quickly. She has such a hate for him and it was great watching what she puts him through...but he's forgiven rather quickly for how much she loathed him. The problem of her living in Georgia and falling for a guy in Alabama is another issue that could've been prolonged...but again, problem is eliminated too quickly. The problem of Ben's ex not giving him joint custody of his toddler son could've been a great dramatic issue had it been drawn out...but...it's resolved within a few paragraphs. It was a great build up to a big let down. I was disappointed with no angst, no turmoil, weak controversy and weak drama. Everything was wrapped up and concluded rather sweetly and succinctly without much ado. However the story line is told well and conveyed perfectly with a solid lead in to the next installment and it was fun, entertaining fluff; therefore I think it's deserving of four stars.
I have to say, this turned out totally different than what I had in my mind, in a good way. It was sweet and cute and it did have a good history to back it up, I really really liked it.
Kids can be cruel, whether they are aware of it or not, words can hurt more than actions and Mia’s childhood nightmare was her best friend’s brother, Ben. Ben was simply put a jackass and he treated her like crap when they were kids and Mia is still not over it, understandably so, she was a chubby kid and Ben made fun of her a lot. No one likes to be made fun of, so Mia is still holding a grunge.
At first I didn’t like Ben as much because he easily got into Mia’s looks – a huge contrast to what teen Ben treated her like – and I got the feeling that if Mia wasn’t hot he wouldn’t be as hell bend to get her to forgive him but over the course of the story he really understood how much words can hurt and he genuinely wanted to make it up to her; sometimes kids can be mean for no reason, sad but true. I don’t know, that part was really weird for me but he turned out to be a good guy in the end.
Mia really did give him a hard time even when he went all caveman on her, she really stood her ground and I loved it, it was refreshing to have a heroine like that, plus Ben is kinda swoony, plus they are so freaking cute together and Ben, oh boy the mouth on that man, he is hot and they were explosive together.
