Review: Where I Belong by J. Daniels

I really don't know what to think about this book. It was an okay read for me but at the same time I found it extremely difficult to put down. It was kind of like crack for me. I will say that I really enjoyed that authors voice and found that it was easy to get swept away in her world. I think what ruined this book for me was the characters and the plot. Honestly it was kind of a hot mess and it had me shaking my head no more than once.

*Some mild spoilers ahead.*

First let me just say that Ben was a bit much for me at times. I found that he was kind of one dimensional and didn't really do anything for me. He was a bit too caveman-like and I found him to be kind of irritating in his Alpha ways. Let me explain. He's constantly "claiming" Mia as his. While normally I don't mind this but for some reason it just irritated me in this book. Maybe because I felt like his feelings was a bit of insta-love like and I just never really got a true sense that he cared for Mia. Don't get me wrong, I get that he likes her but why? The author never really delves into that. They essentially have a hot one night stand (where they don't even exchange names) and yet the next day he's head over heels and done for. I just didn't buy it.

As for Mia I felt like she went from hating Ben and I mean HATING Ben to in love with him. It essentially feels like it's overnight and I just didn't buy it. I also didn't buy into the fact that she held on to her virginity until she was 23 just to lose it to some random hot guy in a bar just because she doesn't want her childhood best friend to make fun of her. I mean what!?! Who does that? Also, not only does she lose her virginity but it's like the best sex ever. Seriously?! I don't buy it.

Another thing that bothered me about this book is just how gross Tessa (Mia's bestie/Ben's sister) is when it comes to Mia and Ben's sex life. Some of the things she asks/says about her brothers anatomy left a bad taste in my mouth and just seemed bizarre. What sister wants to know the size of her brothers penis? Ugh.

All in all this book was just okay for me. Will I read another by J. Daniels, absolutely. In fact, I've got the next book ready to go on my Kindle. But do I recommend? That I'm not so sure about. Like I said before, for some reason I found this book to be like crack and even though I had a lot of issues with it I can't help but want to read more.
