I Belong With You by Shannon Guymon


Synopsis:

Kit Kendall moved to Fircrest with her sisters, Layla and Jane in the hopes of starting over. Baking bread instead of painting is quite the transition but she's never been happier in her life. Too bad life has a habit of throwing her curve balls and Rob Downing, the owner of the Iron Skillet might just be too much to handle. She's not sure whether or not she should catch him or throw in her mitt. Especially when Hunter shows up and decides she's the woman for him. As Kit tries to figure out what her heart has been telling her all along, the bakery comes under attack from a saboteur intent on ruining Belinda's Bakery. With Layla and Michael's wedding only weeks away, they're determined to find the culprit because no one's getting in the way of this happy ending.

My Review: 5 Stars

I love I Belong With You! It is definitely one of my favorites!

Kit has not had the best luck when it comes to men. She has dated guys who are shallow and only see her as eye candy and a trophy. She has never given her heart away to anyone and has definitely never been in love. She holds back and it all seems to stem from her dead beat father.

When Kit first moves to Fircrest she meets Rob. There is instant chemistry and she thinks that it could lead somewhere. But Rob has been burned by beautiful women in the past and pretty much ignores Kit. He thinks that all beautiful women are bad and not good for relationships.

Kit is about to throw in the towel and just give up on men when Michael sets her up on a blind date. When she first meets Hunter she is furious with Michael. Hunter is late, acts cocky, constantly talks about himself and doesn't even attempt to get to know her. But while on their date she gets a glimpse of his insecurities and realizes that who Hunter is on the outside does NOT match who he truly is on the inside. And she decides that it's time to take a chance on love.

Enter back in Rob. Holy cow! What in the world happened to him from the first book till now?! He is just crazy! He doesn't know how to take no for an answer and has to get mommy involved to help him with Kit. Really?! *sigh* The man seriously needed a Gibbs slap and really needed to be put in his place! The man has A LOT of growing up to do before he can enter into any kind of relationship!

And I just have to say that I absolutely LOVED Hunter! He was AMAZING! Talk about a real man! He understands Kit, he gets her, he sees her, he wants to protect her and make her happy. He treats her exactly how she should be treated... like a queen. While the odds are against them, they just fit and are perfect for each other! I love them! :)

On top of having to deal with an amazing man and a jerk, Kit is attacked and ends up in the hospital with a concussion. And someone is still out to sabotage the bakery. Are the bad reviews and the attack on Kit done by the same person or are we dealing with 2 separate attacks?

While all this is going on you get to see Michael and Layla's continued relationship and prepare for their wedding. You also get to see a little more of Jane and what she's going through. Everything is being set up for book 3. Can't wait to read Jane's story! :)

And my casting choices...
