You Belong With Me by M.R. Joseph ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway

What happens when a man falls in love with his best friend? How does he convince her to love him in return if she has no idea that his feelings run so deep?

Carter London has everything a man should want, a blooming career as a sexy rock star, a loving family, women who adore his model-perfect looks, and great friends. What he doesn't have is the love of the girl who stole his heart nine years ago.

Casey Colbert is the converse-wearing epitome of the girl next door. She's smart, beautiful, and best friends with Carter London. She knows all there is to know about her sex-on-a-stick best friend, except the well-guarded secret of her holding the key to his heart.

Carter returns to his hometown of Indian Shores, Florida for his ten year college reunion, to profess his love to Casey. Unfortunately, he discovers her heart is already spoken for by none other than Jordan Reid, who is gorgeous, sweet and insanely rich.

Carter vows to use his time back home to win over the one woman who can set his world on edge with just a glimpse of her smile. Will Casey see the love that's right in front of her eyes? Or will the mistakes of his past and his obsession with loving her overwhelm the girl who already has it all?


4 Stars

This story was all over the, laughter, betrayal, drama, sex, tragedy....just a freaking emotional roller coaster. I do have to say that M.R. Joseph kept you hanging on the edge of your seat. Just when you think things are flowing beautifully....BAM!!!! Another curve ball is thrown at you. What I absolutely loved about this story, was that it is so true to life. We all make stupid decisions and mistakes in relationships and it was so well portrayed in this book.

Carter and Casey meet during their first year of college. Carter instantly falls for her but of course makes very poor decisions which leads Casey to believing the only relationship they can have is being friends. They were the best of friends....well, according to Casey.....but Carter....he has always been in love with Casey. Carter returns from tour and decides after nine years of just being best friends he is going to tell Casey the truth. But of course, things have changed in Casey's life and now she is with another man. Throughout the book the author gives us flash backs of the past that takes us on small journeys of Casey and Carters friendship. This is where I had a little trouble following. To me it seemed at times the story didn't flow very well and parts were rushed. There was so much more meat to this story that could have been written. But with all this said, overall I would highly recommend this book.....especially if you love lots of DRAMA!!!! I know I do! Enjoy!!!

Congrats M.R. Joseph on your release! Looking forward to reading more from you in the future!
