I just finished Because We Belong. A-MAZ-ING! I LOVED IT!! Holy cow, Beth Kery knocked one OUT of the park with this book. It was so interesting with so much detail and back story. I was so sad when the book ended that I wouldn't get to hear about all of the characters again, but then saw the excerpt from "Since I Saw You" and got soooo excited again! I really loved the entire series. I was really happy that Ian's emotional depth was explored in this book. It really looked at his insecurities. H ...more

4 Tortured Ian Stars

If you like tortured heroes, then Because We Belong is for you.

This is the continuation of Ian and Francesca’s story. Ian is distraught after finding out who his father is. He travels to France to seek out his roots. He doesn’t tell anyone where he is and loses all contact with Francesca.

It is 6 months later and Francesca is still dealing with the aftermath of being left alone. She wants to move on, but it’s difficult when Ian has left her control of his company.

BECAUSE WE BELONG is the third full length instalment in Beth Kery’s Because You Are Mine contemporary, erotica adult series. Kery is known for her ‘serial’ style of writing including the first set in the series ‘Because You Are Mine’. I am not a fan of the serial style novel therefore I was more than pleased that Because We Belong was released as a full-length novel from the outset.

The premise of Because We Belong continues the story of Ian and Francesca who were the focus of the fir

A copy of this book was provided by the publisher for an honest review at Seductive Musings.

This review contains spoilers for Because You Are Mine and When I’m With You, the first two stories in the series. You could try to read Because We Belong as a stand-alone book, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

After having to read the previous stories in this series as serial novels, it was a huge relief for me that Because We Belong was being released as a complete book from the start. The prologue takes pla

Finally Ian and Francsesca get their HEA....not.

Ian and Francsesca start making progress with their relationship but it all comes to a halt when Ian finds out the truth of his father. With the combination of the loss of his mother. He flees.

I was so pissed at Ian for leaving but the more the story went on the more you understood and your heart went out to Ian. I may not have agreed to how he dealt with it but I got it.

Though I enjoyed the other books and anticipated this one, I only gave it 3 stars. I was disappointed. I like parts of it, but the overall feel was too wordy. It took too many words to describe the mostly non-original action. Thus taking away from the excitement.

At the end of the previous book, Francisca and Ian are engaged. At the beginning of this one, it’s six months later. Ian is acting odd. Francisca feels something is wrong. Then he disappears without a word, leaving Francisca in limbo,

I received an ARC of this book. I have read the complete series and I think I like this one the most. It has mystery and suspense. The story of Ian and Francesca continue. This is the story about Ians fears. He needs to find out more about his past and who exactly his real father is and why he is such a mystery. After he suddenly disappears after his mothers death and no one hears from him except one person. Then just while he is gone a business transaction comes up and Francesca finds out that ...more

“ I had never felt more dark standing next to your brilliance, never so hollow beside your fullness.”

" I want to be with you more than anything Francesca. But I can't do that until I feel....whole."

This was a great ending to Ian and Francesca’s story. They struggled to find their way…and in the end love conquered all. He needed Francesca’s strength to make him face his demons and find his answers. I was surprised that Ian left the way he did but I also understood his motives. This story had a lo

This story leaves off from the Because You Are Mine and When I'm With You Series. To fully understand all the characters it would be best to read those first. Now for this book, it is explosive. Ian has left Francesca following his mother's death. No one knows where he is. Only after a company comes available does Ian's Grandparents have to rally Francesca to buy this company as head of the board he put in place in his absence. This eventually leads to his return after a threat is recognized. Wi ...more

When I found out that Beth Kery was writing a different conclusion novel for Ian and Francesca, I was ecstatic. I read Because You Are Mine and I loved it the only thing I didn't love was the ending of the series I was left wanting more especially in the emotional category so when I heard Because We Belong was coming out and it was going to be the conclusion of the series where as Ian an

Well, well, well!

Explosive stuff! After reading the prologue, I was quietly shocked! wanted to shake Ian by his shoulders, what was he thinking, actually he wasn't, couldn't have been.

Blooming Francesca, although in the name of love I probably would have moaped around too, missing the love of my life, not understanding what was going on.

Loved that we got caught up with Lucian and Elise, both really good friends to both of them.

So Francesca gets called in to help run Ian's company, although she d

Ed eccoci qui con il gran finale per Ian e Francesca, perché non poteva non essere un gran finale! In questo terzo capitolo affiora anche un bel po' di suspense, quindi wowwissimooo :D Lo stile di Beth Kery come al solito è superlativo - è inutile, continuerò ad osannarla e a dichiararla dea del genere erotico, anche se sono l'unica in Italia a pensarla così! Descrizioni al punto giusto, narrazione più che fluida... come si fa a non amare ogni sua opera? E soprattutto, come si fa a non sbavare p

I'm going to make this review short and sweet.

But first, I don't know HOW the heck I failed to have the existence of this book under my radar after all this time. It was released last year no less, last freaking year and where had I been?!

Okay, enough with the fuss and let's dive down to the business. This book was just as amazing alright. The last book sure has left me hanging (mind you, it did end with a HEA, but I felt something was amiss) and Because We Belong delivers wh

Trilogía terminada. Debo decir que esta última parte se me ha hecho bastante tediosa. No he soportado la actitud de Ian durante casi la mitad de la novela. Pero bueno, al final siempre acababa sacándome la sonrisa, porque sí, al fin y al cabo Ian es solo un romántico sobreprotector con poca autoestima debido a sus orígenes. Me ha gustado conocer más de sus orígenes, como también que aparecieran Lucien y Elise ❤ El final es obvio, pero no esperaba otra cosa. Ha estado bien, pero me han faltado mu ...more
O final da triologia que não me cativou assim tanto, embora tenha tido ali uns momentos muito interessantes achei a história um bocadinho forçada.
O facto do Ian ter de se pugar dos fantasmas do passado, isolando-se e nada dizendo às pessoas que lhe eram mais queridas, não gostei.
Ele regressar e encontrar-se só com a amada na festa? Não gostei... não houve tempo quando chegou para ir ter com ela? Não me cabe na cabeça... não existia telefones de qualquer forma?

3.5* Intriguing yet completely unrealistic for both the story and the characters. The only thing that got me going was the writing which isn't bad at all. The characters are ridiculous really, if Ian wasn't a millionaire, no woman would touch him with a barge pole, let alone forgive him so easily for leaving her without a word for 6 months. The sex scenes are interesting but too abundant and she must climax about 4 or 5 times every session. Just silly. Still the quality of the writing is worth g ...more

Neste livro, voltamos novamente ao romance entre Ian e Francesa que dá uma reviravolta no segundo livro. Segredos que aparecem à tona e que podem ameaçar destruir a felicidade deste casal. Afinal o pai de Ian, tinha um outro filho, e Ian não reage da melhor forma possível. Erotismo ao mais alto nível, como sempre e que acaba sempre por surpreender e não ser sempre a mesma coisa. Adorei.
