Another awesome book in The Riding Tall series. I think this one just might be my favorite. The chemistry between Mike McBride and Anne Batista was off the charts and the sex...Wow just Wow! I loved the kind of twist in this book it was a different sort of suspense. It was fabulous. I can't wait for the next book this series just keeps getting better. I highly recon that the series is read in order to enjoy it fully.
The plot is great action is great. The problems begin with Hollie, a kindergarden teacher who is a self proclaimed southern bell who never has a bad thought. She has a crush on John a local cop who will not commit to any woman. Hollie is one of those weak willed, spineless women who whine and cower all the time. She is pretty stupid. She keeps her money 10,000 hidden in closet instead of the bank along with other valueables that should be in a safe deposit box. She is abused physicaly and emotiony by her step brothers and their friends who tell her they will rape and kill her , she lets them live with her out of fear they will hurt her if she kicks them out. Well duh they already are. She bails them out of jail all the time The cop is a womanizer who keeps several women at the same time in differant towns to sleep with telling himself and them they are friends with benefits. He cares nothing for them and dumps them when he gets bored. He begins dating Hollie while sleeping with the other women. He doesnt see any wrong with not breaking up with the other women while he dates Hollie who is a virgin. Hollie is framed for murder, doeznt ask for a lawyer when arrested goes to jail. She talks to the cops with no lawyer. Idiot. She is finally cleared and marries the cop. She feels sorry for the guy who begining to rape her because she shoots him. All in all this book isnt good unless you like weak idiot women and womenizing men
As with this whole series this book had some action, some sex, and some emotional conflicts. This book was not quite as good as John's story, but I still loved it. The emotions that Anna went through would be overwhelming to most people. My one wish is that the story would have been longer with more action. Over all it was a good story.
The series has really been great. This was my least favorite. In all the other books, the hero has been protective and supportive of the woman he loves. Maybe the author should have chosen another storyline, another roadblock in the lovers' path. The hero being who he is I guess couldn't come to the female protagonist's aid. It felt like she was left on her own to endure the problems that arose. Once the "problem" could no longer affect him, then the hero came to her. Her best friend deserted her, he deserted her. Only at the end, when everything had pretty much run its course did they come to be at her side. The series, as I said, is really great, though, and I would recommend reading every book in the series.
I have had the wonderful opportunity to read quite a few books by the talented Cheyenne McCray now. I have enjoyed each book and found each one to be a real page turner. Belong To You I found not only to be a real page turner full of suspense but also a tear jerker in places. I felt an instant connection to Anna Batista. She is just one really wholesome family girl, living to help take care of her family. She loves her Aunt, Uncle, and little cousins and is so pleased that they are all together. She attends a debate with her best friend. Her best friend's brother (a jerk if I may add) is debating the current sheriff (a real good guy). Anna meets Sheriff Mike McBride and there is an instant connection between these two. After much personal debate Anna decides to meet Mike for drinks and the connection grows deeper. However when the jerk Chad finds out about this blooming relationship he adds some major drama to the situation that makes me like the jerk even less. I won't tell you too much about this because it is a major part of the storyline. However this does lead to some major tension between Anna and Mike and also leads to some very serious tear jerker moments. I really enjoyed this story, It didn't take me very long at all to read. There is plenty of drama, a few steamy scenes, and some really sweet family moments. On the whole I just really enjoyed this story. I know I will be looking forward to reading more of Cheyenne McCray's work. It doesn't seem to matter what genre she writes in, she writes one really awesome storyline that totally keeps me entertained. I have really enjoyed this Riding Tall series and I look forward to reading more of these books as well. Honestly I'm looking forward to reading what ever Ms. McCray has out next as well. I was given the opportunity to read this book so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Belong To You.
