    One thought on “Unbelonging”

    1. UNBELIEVABLE!80% of the story I had a fuckin' feeling the ending was not gonna happen in this book! Around 95%I was praying praying that those feelings were not true100% I.JUST.FUCKIN.DIED!I should have check the reviews before reading this book! To be honest, I didn't know what to expect when I started this book. Really, I had no expectation what-so-ever! The story started off quite unique and interesting! The heroine is likeable, she's not a doormat or annoying. She's pretty much in between- f [...]

    2. Wanna know whats worse than a cliffhanger? How about a FREAKING TO BE CONTINUED ending in a book that was freaking awesome and now I have to wait!! *bawling ugly tears* But on a good note, the book was really great and I couldn't put it down! :)

    3. 2 1/2 star rating.Way too much contrived angst in this book. These MC's kept even the small things secret from each other. How can they develop a relationship with one another if they can't even be honest with each other about who they are, what they do? Because of that the connection between the two MC's came off as fake and unbelievable.The first half of the book moved at a snails pace, and when the hero and heroine finally got together, the author fast forwarded weeks ahead into their relatio [...]

    4. Not really sure what to even say about this one. Kinda dumbdidn't hate the heroine or hero, but didn't really like them either. Waaay too much secret-keeping and of course this leads to the big "misunderstanding" and total over-reaction at the end. Oh, and then we get a big fat cliffhanger-jeez. I may actually have to read the second one just to find out what happens.

    5. Damn, I liked this one! It ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, bute onwe all know they're going to end up together.And I liked a heroine in a New Adult novel! I never thought this day would come! She stood up for herself! THE HERO TREATED HER BADLY AND THEN WAS ALL "BABY, I'M SO SORRY BABY, IT'LL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN BABY" AND CHLOE WAS LIKE "YEAH, NO, BUH-BYE".BLESS YOU, SABRINA STARK!

    6. If asked if I would recommend this book, I'd have to say No!!!The story hooks you from the start, like a cliffhanger. If you want to know how it plays out, you have to keep reading. That's the only reason I kept going. Book was slow. I don't like either character. Both are hiding things and falling in love knowing there are secrets. Book starts to get good around the 70% point. This is the third book I've read recently where it was the same way!! What is up with that????Then the end is pitiful. [...]

    7. It is just ok. Chloe was a bit frustrating and, with no perspective from Lawton, I could not identify with him at all. No idea what he was playing, or not. Chloe was not mysterious. She was evasive and, at times, stupid. The non ending was almost worse than a cliffhanger.

    8. Gosh, darnit, this is why I don't like series books. I just finished and can't stand that I'm not able to just keep reading. And by the time the next book is out, I probably won't remember it, not with this keen excitement. That said, I loved this book. I loved the heroine's strength, wit, and spunk. I loved the Hero, too. Fuck, but Lawton was HOT and kind--a combination you don't find very often. Especially, if you toss in filthy rich. Also, Chloe's backstory was pitiable without being too trau [...]

    9. This is another re-read. I actually remembered the opening of this book so well that I thought the book was better than the re-read proved. I really liked it, but most of the drama between the H/h was just the h being stupid. I hate that. I get her "reasons" but they were still kind of stupid. Sorry. NoNot sorry. She could have explained it to him once they were sleeping together. But her reason to continue keeping him in the dark, that the bros might be thievesJesus. Utterly fucking ridiculous. [...]

    10. OF COURSE THIS WOULD HAVE A FREAKING CLIFF HANGER!!!!!!Nooooooo!!!!!!!Out of this whole book, I did. NOT. expect that! Dang it!!!However, this book was hot and sassy and kinda super secretive, like seriously all of your questions WILL NOT be answered in this book Go figure.This chick is something. She is amazing, a caretaker, awesome She completely blew me away. Takes care of her family while trying to take care of herself. What a freaking hero! Wow. But golly I loved it!!!! Cannot stop dreaming [...]

    11. 3.21 I-Loved-The-Girl-But-I-Hated-The-Guy-So-I-Guess-It's-One-Of-Those-love-Hate-Situtions StarsThe cover was kinda okayough I have no idea why there's a hint of pink there to ruin my view. Red is okay, but pink is not! Well, whatever.The blurb was interesting. Wouldn't have bothered to read the book if it sucked. :DSometimes, the Place You Belong Isn't Where You Began…With an accounting degree that's getting her nowhere, Chloe Malinski spends her nights waitressing and her days housesitti [...]

    12. Audio ReviewI listen to a lot of books. I have been listening to audiobooks for years and I saw the reviews that some people did not think the narrator did a great job, but I think she did a great job for a NA story.First, she sounded like a 23 year old woman, which Chloe is. Many of these narrators that read NA stories sound like they are in their 30s/40s, not in their 20s.Second, the narrator did the male voices very well. Some of them may have sounded the same, but when there was a scene with [...]

    13. I don't dislike this book, but I am disappointed by it. For a freshman release, it has a lot of positives. I do like the characters a lot even though a couple of things bug me. What bugs me the most is that she's hiding that she's a house sitter from him out of some obligation to be confidential to a client, but the ONLY time we see anything involving the client, she seems a perfectly reasonable, sweet woman who I can't help but feel would not instill such fear into the heroine. We learn so much [...]

    14. HAS POTENTIAL I believe this is the authors debut novel. On the whole she has real potential. Her characters are well drawn even if Chloe the heroine was infuriating at times. Lawson the hero is a good guy with the usual rough edges. When Chloe is hired to house sit for a couple in an upmarket neighbourhood she takes the responsibility seriously, watering the plants and looking after the couples dog. Chloe also works as a waitress. Then she meets the next door neighbour Lawson a man who's made h [...]

    15. house sitter + dog sitter + plant sitter = herirtless + shoeless + hot body = him.I think the dog played a big role to their love story.

    16. Chloe is a waitress, a college graduate, a dog walker, and a house-sitter. Her dad remarried a horrible woman who dislikes Chloe and her brother Josh. Josh is 13 & Chloe wants him to live with her but is struggling to get an accounting job to be able to get her own place. Right now Chloe is house-sitting and has a place to stay. Right down the street from Lawton.Lawton is a professional fighter turned millionaire. Girls use him for his money, his body, his reputation and much more. So he is [...]

    17. I Love when I am looking on amazon and find a book that stands out to me, it might now have very many reviews yet, and the author is brand new, you find them on Facebook as well, because you have to know what's coming next from them. This is what I have found with new author Sabrina Stark. She has taken us on a journey that won't be forgotten anytime soon.Chloe, is trying very hard to get a job in her field of accounting, she is working as a waitress, takes a job watching a dog, watching a house [...]

    18. This book was an okay read, nothing special. If you're looking for some dramatic book or an exciting book, this is definitely not the book.The story was mostly a drag. It was rather drawn out and half of the book was blah. The beginning got me interested but as i continued reading i was just desperately counting down the pages until the story ended much to my bemusement. The MC had an interesting personality. I liked her. However it would have been more interesting if the author also wrote from [...]

    19. This book held so much promise. Kept me up till 4 am and then proceeded to thoroughly disappoint!The basement scene could have been developed better, one minute he was as stubborn as a mule, not listening to her, and then the very next apologizing profusely.So that was anticlimacticI get that it was a misunderstanding but there should have been some more content between his action and realizing his mistake. I couldn't understand his drastic reaction to cuff her in the basementems a bit MUCH! For [...]

    20. Absolutely awesome. Loved the characters, I LOVED THEM.Loved Chloe,I loved her reactions and I also loved how in the end she had the courage and the realistically expected reaction to stay angry at Lawton and what he did to her, in stead of melting to him.Their romance was very nicely developed and realistic and I loved the side characters and the backround, because they just added the right amount of spice without overdoing it.I'm looking forward to read the next book 'Rebelonging'. 5 stars :3

    21. I pulled an all nighter on this duo. As soon as I finished Unbelonging, I downloaded the second book, Rebelonging. Chloe is a well rounded, likeable character with an awesome attitude. She's not an impossibly perfect woman, but a real one, with believable problems. How could anyone not love Chloe? She makes up a job for her grandma so she can "work". Love it! Lawton is well developed as the irresistible bad boy, and I'm proud that Chloe can handle him as well as she does. The tension and angst b [...]

    22. "Ok"My Audible Audiobook Review:Honestly, I got bored in the very beginning, so it took me like 3 times to listen to this. Once I got past like chapter 10, the story picked up a bit. It was ok not a relisten for me it was just good, nothing grand, and definately not a waste of time. I am glad I finally finshed listening thoughNarration was eh! Could have been better; however, I did like the male voices.Nice credit not worth a buy definately a sale.

    23. Ah. I really can't say I loved it or even liked it. I guess I tolerated it. When Chole snapped the picture of dude naked I did my first eye roll. So typical and overly used. The characters are well developed but the story is really lacking. Chole has no reason to be ashamed of what she is or what she does for a living. That really pissed me off. She should have had the ball to tell him the truth. Hope the next book is better than this one.

    24. Lawton the bad boy, I felt sorry for him, lonely and manipulated by Bishop his brother accused. Chloe has her hands were tied literally and metaphorically, unable to divulge her own misery, too proud to ask Lawton for help. Will she forgive Lawton and find their HEA.

    25. It is a great read. A sweet romance with some major bumps along the way. It is a 2 book mini series but the are full books. It will keep your interest and keep you turning pages. Rated very good

    26. a To be continued is just as bad a cliff hanger.It was entertaining AND I was glad to see she still put him in his place at the "end" of this book.

    27. I don't even have the words to review this. This was so dramatic. I can't even handle it.☆☆ - 1 for Chuckie, and 1 for Grandma.Since I am a complete masochist, I have to read the sequel.

    28. Its an awesome book!Better than i ever expected.The girl is strong till the end, not giving in just because she is in love.
