Summary:

She Only Wants to Belong

CFO Ben Bolton has enough on his plate running his family business. But when lovely Josey White Plume enters his office, his priorities shift. He refuses to let such a compelling woman walk away. The chase is on.

All her life, Josey has sought one thing: to fit in with her Lakota family. She has no time for some sexy rich guy’s pursuit. But she can’t stop thinking about Ben–wanting him…kissing him. Yet falling for a wealthy outsider will destroy everything she’s worked for–unless she can find a way to straddle the line between his world and hers.

Review:

I loved how the these two are always in conflict of what to do. They wanna please everyone and at the same time do what they love. It’s a very difficult dilemma and Josey had it way worst. This is not my first indian book, but it’s pretty clear during the read how much bullying Josey suffered and the difficulties her mother has in the tribe.

Ben is the middle son and since his mother died is very hard to keep the family together especially when everything he does is considered wrong by his father. I liked him and his relationship with Billy, but it’s still difficult to survive in the enviroment, with everyone pushing you down. I liked when he decided to do something for himself and chose to follow his heart with Josey. They are truly perfect together and both needed to learn their spaces and forget about people judging them.

I liked this first book and it’s a great introduction to this series.

Summary:

Review:

I loved JoJo, she’s determined and fight for what she wants, but more importantly, is the fact she fell in love with her best friend and that could change everything but I liked the way she took control and decided to make him jealous.

Stern definitely deserved to suffer a little bit, especially after all those women he dated and how much he pushed JoJo to the friends only. She is a beautiful woman, but was raised by her father only and he was a mechanic, so she’s more a town boy and that made it really hard for men to actually notice her.

Those other Westmoreland decided to help her and she clean up nice, but I liked the fact Stern decided to look out for her and followed with this crazy plan. These two were so right for each other. This story is common, but I loved JoJo, so I was cheering for her.
