From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author J. Daniels.

Book one in the Alabama Summer series.

When Mia Corelli returns to Alabama for a summer of fun with her childhood best friend, Tessa, there's only one thing keeping her on edge - one person she'd do anything to avoid.

Benjamin Kelly. World's biggest dickhead.

Mia hates him with a fury and has no desire ever to see him again. When she decides to start her summer off with a bang and finally give away her v-card, she unknowingly hands it over to the one guy who excelled at making her life miserable, learning a valuable lesson in the process.

Always get the name of the guy you're going home with.

Ben can't get the girl he spent one night with out of his head. When she leaves him the next morning, he thinks he'll never see her again...until he sees her lounging by the pool with his sister.

Mia is determined to hate Ben even though she can't forget him.

Ben is determined to prove he's not the same guy he used to be.

What happens when the one person you wish never existed becomes the one person you can't imagine being without?

A SWEET & ADDICTIVE CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

Now grown into a beauty Mia is dreading staying with Tessa, her best friend, for the Summer because of Tessa's brother Ben and his once hurtful words and hatred towards her while growing up and those taunting words still haunt her today. Mia decides to stop en-route to lose her V card and picks up a very hot, very handsome and very buff guy at a Bar who is all too willing for a one night stand with her and he turns out to be very understanding of her situation and is a very tender, passionate and thoughtful lover.

With that taken care of and fond memories of her wild night and sexy lover she continues on to Tessa's house only to discover that her passionate lover was Ben.... of all the random people on the Planet she gave it up to Ben the hated brother and her anger towards him knew no bounds. But Ben's reaction was the opposite, he couldn't get the mystery woman out of his mind and was shocked but delighted to discover he had a second chance with her. So he took it every chance he got but Mia kept shooting him down and bringing up his hurtful childhood taunts which made him rethink his tactics.... he was quickly losing the battle but was determined to win the war.

Great main and secondary characters (especially a Dragon obsessed sweet little 3 yr old), an entertaining plot with no terrible secrets just some bad childhood memories that were eventually forgiven.... well he was irresistible in his Cop's uniform. Lots of sex, romance and laughs and the plot had some tension with a bitter ex, some angst as Mia's feelings changed and some heartache because Mia's Mother was battling Cancer. Dual POV's and Stella Bloom did an excellent job at bringing the characters and situations to life.

Worth a credit? What a great start to a series that I'm definitely going to get into and book 2 is already in my cart. A truly yummy enjoyable listen that's very creditworthy.

I love J. Daniels and Mia and Ben's story!

Interesting plot, great characters and I didn't want to stop listening. It was funny, sweet, hot and the characters felt realistic. J. Daniels' writing pulls you in and you can't wait to find out how Ben and Mia's story ends. And Sir Nolan.... I just love him. He's so precious.

Great 1st book in the series!

I really liked this book. The story line was great, there were a few unlikely situations that made it a little unbelievable but it was great none the less. Ben was an awesome character, I loved that you got to see how much he grew as a man. Mia wasn't very confident but she played it off well when she needed too which was awesome! The sex scenes were super HOT. After the first scene I knew I was going to love this book. Stella Bloom did a fantastic job narrating this book, I was very happy to see she narrated this whole series. I will be continuing with the series!!!

It is an okay book

It was an okay book. I was expecting more of a story line, but most of the book is about sex (either thinking about it or doing it). There didn't seem to be enough time for the feelings to develop between characters for my taste, but I won't say more than that so I don't ruin anything. Overall, it had a lot of raunchy scenes and Nolan is adorable. I paid for the book, I do not think it is credit worthy since it is such a short book and it was overall just average to me

Narrators were AWESOME

What did you like best about Where I Belong? What did you like least?

I still hated this story: ugly girl is tormented by her friends brother. She grows up and gets hot, then suddenly he wants her. Ugh. What a jerk.
However, the narrators of this book are what kept me listening!

Which character – as performed by Stella Bloom – was your favorite?

Stella did an amazing job. When she did the voice of Ben's son I was in love!

Was Where I Belong worth the listening time?

Yes

Addictive, enjoyable rom com

I loved this sexy, funny, if not very cheesy, enemies to lovers, to friends to lovers, sappy romance. The story follows Mia Corelli who returns to her childhood town to stay with her best friend Tessa Kelly, for the summer. Her only issue is Benjamin Kelly, Tessa's older, horrible brother, who used to pick on her constantly. Oh and one other thing, she's still a virgin, and yes she wants to lose that card before she sees her best friend who is as far from a virgin as you can get. What better way to lose it than with a one night stand. Although I think she should have done her homework a bit more before picking up a stranger in a bar. Thoroughly enjoyable, addictive romance, written in dual POV, with lovable characters and lots of chemistry. I loved the narration, spot on.
