When everything is stacked against you, sometimes surviving only happens when you find that one person in the world and the one place you truly…

This world can beat you down.
Make you feel worthless.
Swallow you up in its darkness.
In the blink of an eye the people I loved more than anything, were taken from me.
Leaving me alone with no one but my abusive father.
If you get told you’re worthless often enough, you start to believe it.
You drink it in until it poisons your soul.
That was my life…until Justin.

The minute I saw Sarah, I knew she was special.
I wanted to claim her then, but she wasn’t ready.
Seeing her again, I know I’m done waiting.
I want her.
I’m not stopping until I make her see how special she is.
I want her to look in the mirror and see the woman I see, the woman who was made for me. Sarah thinks she doesn’t deserve me.
She doesn’t think I can understand the pain inside of her.
I have the same darkness inside of me.
I just need her to believe in herself and in me.
In us.

Can two damaged souls learn to trust and lean on each other?
Can they put their past behind them and learn just how beautiful life can be together?
Or when tragedy strikes, will it all be lost forever?

3.5 Stars from Tiffany!

Warp Speed of Crazy

Belong by N.B. Baker has everything going on in it, including the kitchen sink. She makes these characters run the gamut of emotions and then some. 

Sarah is in her twenties struggling thorough life at the moment. Well, she's been struggling for years with the father situation. The girl needs to get out, however still sees the sliver of hope that things will change. She is an emotional mess and also learned the hard way that masking it with booze and drugs isn't the way to go either.

Justin was a saviour once, took some time away and is now back to save again. He's only ever seen Sarah from afar, but knows she's the girl for him. Finally in a good space himself, he goes for it, hoping she doesn't remember exactly who he is.

Justin and Sarah start off with a huge secret between them, so that's all I could think about while reading. The reveal and the aftermath. Sure they went through the motions of getting to know each other and of course instantly loving each other, but that secret was killing me more than them..

The book is well written, predictable and a little choppy, but I got the gist. Belong has a good premise, however didn't fully hit the mark for me. I did like the little epilogue at the end to let us know how Justin and Sarah were doing it when it was all said and done.
