It took me a moment to pick my jaw up off of the floor after finishing this book I honestly had no clue what was coming in the last 20% and it surprised me in a very good way Even though everyone seemed to have taken the bus to batshit crazy town, the final chain of events provided a good dose of suspense which delivered me to a place of wondering what could possibly happen next.Backtracking for a second, I feel compelled to mention a show that I watched not long ago in which a young girl decided she might want to try living life in an Amish community in order to see if it would drive her to a place where she would eventually convert join up with their church and community I thought of that show while reading Rose s transition over to living in the Amish community Imagine being taken from a life of modern convenience and moved over into a life where every task is now 10 times difficult to complete You aren t able to use cell phones, drive cars, or even use appliances in order to go about completing your daily duties Your life is now about getting up before dawn, doing everything by hand, and falling asleep bone tired while the rest of the world is settling in to watch their nightly t.v This is what Rose signed up for when she decided that her love for Noah was worth to her than her life of convenience I appreciated that the author took the time to really delve into the details of day to day life in an Amish community and showed in detail how rough the transition was on Rose Belonging showed of a balance to this intense and all consuming love story than the first book did In other words if you want to sacrifice all for love, you might actually have to learn the meaning of the word sacrifice There was a depth to the relationship which wasn t really shown before, because book 1 was all about the fall.Now, it s all about life after the fall And this is where life gets tricky.As Rose s new friend noted, love is about giving up your life but not your soul This is something Rose is still struggling with It s good to see how life s tough decisions are not so easily finalized, even when you think you ve already decided your path Book 1 was a sweet love story but the story was still finding a leg to stand on Book 2 stood on its own and then took off sprinting from out of nowhere Bravo, Ms Hopkins I am looking forward to what comes next for Noah and Rose after the exciting ending of Belonging.No gripes, except for one brief annoyance Noah, you said one thing ONE thing to Constance and you hurt my heart in that moment Whether it was true or not made no difference I was disappointed Sigh You better be stepping up to the plate and making me fall in love with you again in book 3 This book was provided from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Are you an adult who is still young at heart Come share your passion for YA fic with us Rated YA MA Okay, now that I got that out of my system, lets get down to my incoherent thoughts exhales How can I like and strongly dislike a series at the same time In all seriousness these books put me in such a foul mood but I can t stop reading them The story is enticing, but the characters drive me freaking nuts.Belonging starts off where Temptation left off Rose is now living in the Amish community and she is thrown into the daily life of an Amish woman She gets up at the crack of dawn everyday, does laundry by hand, scrubs the white fence, and even helps deliver a baby or two I admire Rose for sticking it out and working so hard but she hates being there and can t see herself being an Amish woman for the rest of her life yet she continues to torture herself and her family so she can make a life with Noah Yes, love requires sacrifice at times but Rose is sacrificing everything and Noah is sacrificing nothing And don t even get me started on Rose being told to distance herself from her brothers and father It fills me with rage.I know this review is all over the place and it isn t much of a review but of a rant on how Rose and Noah s relationship angers me I want them to be together, but I don t I don t think they are mature enough to handle the road that is head of them I really don t I m still not sure if Karen Ann Hopkins wrote this as a YA romance novel, or a YA not to do novel It s like Rose and Noah have no freaking sense Ughhh I m sorry, I m just so frustrated with those two The book as a whole was alright A lot of drama happens throughout this book and it keeps you interested in the story but the real drama doesn t start until the last half of the book Reading from Sam s pov, and having a new character, Summer, was sort of Belonging s saving grace That s right, this book has three POV s But they pretty much have their own voice so it reads smoothly Even though this book drives me to insanity I can t wait to get my hands on the next book That ending though, why, just why I m happy but so unhappy Damn freaking cliffhangers and crappy situations UGH Wow.WowWowWOWOWOWOWOWThis series so far has just been INCREDIBLE There were a few minor things that bugged me a bit and I will get to those in a second, but this book took me on an emotional roller coaster The one major thing that irritated me through this series was the fact that Rose only made the commitment to be Amish because of Noah She didn t like their ways, didn t agree with their beliefs, but solely joined them just to please Noah That s a huge NO NO I can t really imagine that an Amish Bishop would be ok with an English girl joining their community just because of a guy It would have to be than that Just doesn t seem realistic.Other than that, after I finished this book, I just had to sit there for a second I was so blown away I could barely think Karen Ann Hopkins writes an incredible teen romance This book is filled with so many surprising twists and turns You never know what is going to happen next This book is definitely one of the best books I ve read so far this year
