Review & Giveaway: You’re Gonna Love Me by Robin Lee Hatcher

You're Gonna Love MeWell, the title promised it…and I did (love this book, that is)! You’re Gonna Love Me is book two in the Thunder Creek series, however, it can easily be read as a stand alone title.

I enjoyed Samantha, Nick, and grandma Ruth so much! This story is a contemporary romance set in a small town, which is truly one of my favorite settings when I read. But, what set this book apart for me was the romantic past that these two characters kept coming up against throughout the novel.

The author did a great job of including flashbacks to the relationship that Nick and Sam had. I liked being able to see what drew the two together, but also understand how very different they were from each other. Nick had changed a lot in the two years since their break up. But it might not be enough for Sam, who fears change and any hint of uncertainty. I loved the back and forth of this story and watching the attraction build between these two.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

You're Gonna Love MeWho knew fate could twist a tragedy into a second chance at love?

Samantha Winters lives her life the way a good accountant should—measured, deliberate, and safe. After watching her father die in a tragic skiing accident, she decided never to allow risk into her life again. But she didn’t count on falling for Nick Chastain, who embodies everything she doesn’t want in her safely constructed world.

Against Samantha’s warnings, Nick plans a dangerous kayaking trip over spring break. Furious that he’s so careless with his life, she ends their fledgling relationship with harsh words.

Two years later, Samantha is desperately in need of a change. When she learns her grandmother has had an accident and is in need of a caretaker, Samantha quickly packs her bags and heads to Thunder Creek, Idaho. But nothing could prepare her for the surprise awaiting her in her grandmother’s hospital room . . . Nick.

With the charming backdrop of small-town friends, beloved cousins, and a whole church congregation rooting for them, can they set aside the disastrous ending of their first try at love? Has Nick changed enough to meet Samantha in the middle—and can she realize that a risk in love might be worth taking?
