I love these Bama boys and I'm always happy to be reading more about them! Ben and Mia's story is the first in the series and it's one of the best. I loved reading about Ben, Mia and little Nolan in Where I Belong. It was such a special read. I'm a sucker for any book with a sweet little kid in it. Add in the fact that these two were childhood frienemies and Ben is Mia's best friends older brother... I was SOLD. So first thing I'm going to say is if you haven't read Where I Belong you need to a

“I like to imagine there was always some part of my soul that belong to Ben. Something undeniable tethering us together. An imperceptible energy, like the force behind a gust of wind.
It's always been there.”


I'm officially the queen of short reviews this week. So sorry, but that's how it goes.

Now, Where We Belong. As you might know I am a huge fan of J. Daniels' Alabama Summer Series. A real chick-flick gem with lots of yummy males and sweet girls, family and kids. Ju

First of all, if you're reading this as a standalone, how dare you?! If you haven't yet met Officer Ben "OMG Nine Inches" Kelly in Where I Belong, you read right this second! Right now, you hears me?! FFS! LOL! But if you want to seriously miss out, you can also read this as a standalone. But why would you? I'd highly recommend reading the whole series in order so you may truly a

In this novella, we have Ben and Mia going through a rough phase. With conflicting work schedules, with Nolan and Chase being very curious and interrupting them every single time, they just want a little deserved time for themselves.
Their original book was my favorite of the series so I have to say that this book was a wonderful surprise. Well written, sweet, romantic and incredibly hot this is a book you can’t miss if you’re a fan of the series, especially because we get to see

Where We Belong was a nice short and spicy interlude and welcome addition to the series. Fans of Ben and Mia are sure to be satisfied with this novella. It's everything you'd come to expect from a J. Daniels full length novel, just compressed into a fun-sized, steamy indulgence. How can you go wrong with a dirty talking officer of the law? It was su

I like to imagine there was always some part of my soul that belong to Ben. Something undeniable tethering us together.


Where We Belong is Ben and Mia’s novella. Their story is the first in the Alabama Summer Series and is still my favorite. I love how Ben and Mia grew up together. I love that Ben is Mia’s best friend’s brother. Mostly, I love that he completely had to win her over to have her.

Their novella picks up after Reed and Beth’s story and continues to their wedding. A lot has happ

I loved every single fucking minute of this story!

I've met a lot of fictional couples in my life but these two are by far one of my favourites.

They're so madly in love that you wish you could have that kind of love at least once in your life.

It was fun, emotional and HOT AS FUCK!!!

Ben is a naughty boy and Mia is a pervert! I fucking LOVE them both together!

Also Sir Nolan and his Chasey will melt your heart <3 that kid never fails to crack me up!

I'm so incredibly happy we got some more of Ben

Fucking loved it!! I loved Ben and Mia in Where I Belong but I fell even harder for Ben Kelly in this novella! Major swooning action going on right now! Every parent knows how hard it is to find that much needed alone time to keep the romance alive, making this a very relatable story. Combine the obstacles of finding that alone time between raising two curious little boys and Daniels' funny and sexy writing...magic. This novella is a must for all Alabama Summer fans!

I loved the reality of this book! For every man or woman out there with young kids in the house...you know you chuckled a time or 2 in this book!

Keeping it sweet and simple, I love the Bama Boys and really missed them. Ben, Luke and Reed back in a book again makes me happy. Knowing the gang is still all hot and horny entertains me, especially Ben Kelly and that cop uniform I love how much Ben and Mia need and want another.

Who complains on having another piece of the delicious Ben Kelly? Not this girl! I love the Bama crew and Where We Belong was a great short novella to catch up with them. Especially with Ben, his Angel and their two adorable children.

Mia and Ben are hotter than ever, their chemistry is explosive and their connection one of the most beautiful ones I've read. I love them together as a couple and as a family. They do belong together and I was so happy to read more of their st

Ben and Mia are my favorite couple from the Alabama Summer Series.  Mia's innocence and straight-forwardness always drew me into her character.  And Ben.  Ben, Ben, Ben.  Ben was a single dad, and is a hot-as-hell cop with tattoos and a southern accent.  What's not to love, really?

Sweet and SMOKIN' HOT!!

A juicy, warm and very funny love letter from J. Daniels to the fans of the Alabama Summer series. Any parent can relate to the frustrations these two feel when just trying to get a little "alone time." But mixed in with the author's trademark style of smexy writing and Alpha men, and you get a totally hot, adorable, and very readable story for fans of the series.

This novella is one more reason why I adore this author and her books. They are all well-written, sweet and

Where We Belong was a SURPRISE from Author J. Daniels. Although I stalk her fairly well to see when her next new release is coming out, I was quite shocked when Ben and Mia showed up on my Kindle. Holy nine inches, Ben!

As life catches up with Mia and Ben, Nolan and Chase are keeping them busy, as does work for Ben. But that hasn’t dampened their desire for each other. We follow them through some hot and sexy times, and let’s not forget Uncle Luke, Aunt Tessa, Reed, and Beth. The Alabama Boys ta

It’s always been there. It’s what brought me back to Ruxton, Alabama three years ago. It’s what put Ben in that bar that night. And it’s what made falling in love with him so incredibly simple.”

(Possible Spoilers)

Mia & Ben have been through a lot to get to where they are. Happily married, in love more than ever and raising their two sons. But with Ben's job and having two young kids, getting any type of alone time is about impossible. Mia misses Ben, his touch, his kisses, him. Ben misses being close to his wife, he misses having time to spend with his family. Mia, Nolan and Chase are his life.

I LOVE this couple! Ben & Mia are my favorite coup

This was such a sweet novella that didn't really feel like one. A lot happened. It progressed the story of Mia and Ben but we also got to see everyone else as well as an introduction to CJ and Riley. I had a smile on my face the whole time and now I want to go reread the whole series.

Where do I begin with this beautiful story? J. Daniels never fails at delivering an amazing story and steamy scenes. When I mean steamy scenes, I mean scenes that make you have to stop and wipe the drool from your chin. Because hello, we are talking about Ben Kelly here. And who doesn't drool when thinking about Benjamin Kelly.
This book is a novella about Ben and Mia's life now that they have two beautiful baby boys. They have no time to themselves and for Ben and

Each of the books in this series got better and better for me. I'm really looking forward to CJ and Riley's story. I love how each couple's lives are intertwined with each other and therefore you get great moments of what is happening in their lives as each story is told.

I will definitely continue to read this author's writing.

Loved this follow up on the original BamaBoy Benjamin "9 Inch" Kelly & his "Angel", Mia.

What I loved about this read is that I not only got the answers to a few outstanding questions I've had as the series progresses, I got to spend time with them as they settled into their forever - including the many bumps in the road that this may bring.

Loved every word. Didn't want it to end.

Right, up next, it's Tully Time.

Holy Hell! Officer Ben Kelly and his pretty girl, Mia, have to be one of the hottest and sweetest couples I have ever read about. Their affection and desire for each other resonates off of every page! They're it for each other and their life is everything they hoped it would be...except a little one on one time is definitely something they could use more of;)

I loved getting more of Ben and Mia's story and their growing family. Nolan is still as precious as he was when he was three, and he loves
