Product Description

One man diving into the past.

One woman emerging from the depths.

At the age of seventeen, Amelia Baide won silver at the Olympic Games and was the second-fastest woman in the pool. Then one tragic night she crashed into a lake and was dragged out without a pulse. Now twenty-four, she is still haunted by it and hasn't swum again. Until this year's anniversary of the accident. It is a day unlike any other and a strange turn of events finds Amelia back at a swimming pool.

Harry Jamieson had eyes for one girl while women and the media had eyes for him. As a trainer of Olympic athletes, he was an in-demand man. Until one boozy morning after ... But from bad luck to pure chance he runs into his old flame, Amelia, at a swimming pool no less. She doesn't remember a thing from the night of the crash.

And Harry knows every single secret.

They join forces -- a comeback for Amelia and Harry's ultimate coaching opportunity. But dodging waves is hard to do, and even the strongest swimmer may sink.

Where We Belong is a second-chance love story for swimming enthusiasts and romantics at heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars great read even if like me you know little about swimming 19 February 2015

Format: Kindle Edition
Where We Belong, Eve Connell
Genre:  Contemporary romance.
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
First thing to say is..I’m not a swimmer, and yet I really enjoyed the swimming parts of this read, from the training where Amelia struggled in the beginning, to the timed trials and competitions. Of course the actual times meant little to me except to show how quickly she was improving, and when she was second – or got that magic first by a fraction of a second. Its a really fun and at times exciting read for those who know nothing about swimming, so don’t be put off if like me you don’t swim.
Amelia had worked so hard from such a young age to get so far ahead in the swimming world, and then it all crashed down when she had a horrific car accident, and was underwater for several  minutes, actually clinically dead for a she hasn’t swum since or had contact with anyone from that time, except her fiancé Kristopher. It’s now six years later and they’ve been having problems for months though, and she’s struggling. He was such a jerk I just wondered what she ever saw in him but maybe, just maybe he was different before? Well, to her anyway, because he seems just the same to me... Then by a coincidence she happens to go into a gym to get a cool drink, they recognise her and offer her a swim and all the clothes she needs for it. She doesn’t want to but still respects the fans who were so positive for her, feels she can’t let the gym down when they’re being so kind, so she actually does it and of course on the way out she bumps into Harry....
Harry: when they were training she idolised him, had done since they were young, and then after the accident where he was involved they’d never seen each other again. He spent some time in prison over the accident and somehow both have shied away from reconnecting even though they were really close.  Meeting like this is a shock to them both, and they briefly chat. The guy who first recognised her tells her he’s arranging a party for his father, someone both she and Harry respect from the swimming scene, and they say they’ll attend. That starts an avalanche of events that culminate in them getting back together as trainer and coach, and stepping cautiously around their attraction. Of course there’s secrets to come out – huge ones, her relationship with Kristopher who was involved in the crash too, and events surrounding just prior to that. The big question is  – this time can Amelia and Harry make things work between them. As a reader I was so rooting for them, it was clear they both had a deep seated respect for each other, as well as a sensual, tangible attraction but the secrets...could they get past them and would the past stay there or reveal the ugly side of what happened? There’s some shocking revelations, casting everyone she knows in a different light and Kristopher, angry at their breakup, does his best to stir up trouble leading to some real danger for Amelia.
Its a great read, I felt her body aching when training started, her elation when swimming went well, and her despair when everything toppled down. Its a fun, easy read, and has some sensual moments and plenty of excitement. I didn’t guess exactly what had happened and parts came as a real shock.  
Stars: Five, a great read which I greatly enjoyed but probably a one off for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tied together by a past filled with love! 20 February 2015
By The Book Fairy Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Tied together by the past. Past that includes love. A past that includes passion, passion for winning, passion for swimming. A past that includes tragedy and deceit. A past that promises to repeat itself.
The love triangle in this book will have you pulling you hair out with frustration, understanding and anger. Mia, Harry and Kristopher have a past, they have been ignoring the repercussions of decisions made and love betrayed for over 6 years. On the anniversary of the day that everything fell apart, Mia sees Harry again and so begins their fight to be together and return to the glory of their hopes and dreams.
So yeah I told you that you would be frustrated and that you would be pulling your hair out. That is because the things you learn about their past will shed light on how they interact in the present and maybe their future.
Eve Connell has given us a book filled with passion not only for the couple but for the sport that they love so much. Be prepared to cry and yell at your readers because the race to their future is filled with surprises and tears!

4.0 out of 5 stars Second Chance is best 19 February 2015
By MJSanders1021 - Published on
Harry and Amelia story was of heart wrenching proportion. I was rooting for Harry from the beginning and hoping his honesty as well as hers would have made everything simpler. One event many ideas of what really happened set the tone for a love story that will have you wondering "what if". With me being a fan of second chance romances I would say this is a 3.5 star read and quite enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHERE WE BELONG 28 March 2015
By Rad-Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Amelia Blade has issues old and new. The present issues are she is in a loveless relationship to a guy she is engaged to. It seems they are together out of habit and comfort as in they know the good and bad of the relationship. They don’t have to work at it and the comfort in they don’t have to go out and look for anyone else until they are ready or one fell in their lap.
Yet, Amelia knew that something was missing considering that Kristopher Siddall, her fiancé, would rather be out with his friends than with her. It was another anniversary with him and he was once again trying to push her buttons to get out of spending it with her. Last year he had spent it with the BOYS, his POSSE, and the GUYS! So, when after asking several times if he had gotten everything he needed out of the bathroom and was he finished in there and him saying he had. He started pounding on the door the minute she was about to put her foot into the shower wanting his after shave Making her livid. She tells him he will have to wait he pounds louder and harder.
He basically acts like a two year old. Yelling that it would only take her a minute and that she was being a baby for just not handing it out. That finally made her break. She threw on her clothes, threw open the door and told him he could have the whole damn thing bathroom and all. She grabbed her keys and purse and left. She drove until she ran out of gas. She ends up walking back to a place about a mile back.
When she gets to the area she is hot, sweaty, and thirsty. She sees the swim arena and decides that it had been 6 years to long since she had been in a pool after her accident where she almost drowned and died. Well she did die but we won’t get into that. She runs into someone that she use to swim with and he greets her and offers her some swim gear. She goes in and puts it on it takes her a few tries to finally get in but when she does it is heaven in a lot of ways and hell in others.
Meanwhile, that same morning Harry Jamieson is once again waking up in an unfamiliar room. Except this one looks like Barney exploded everywhere there were so many varying shades of purple. The worst of it is he couldn’t remember the name of the chick he was in bed with. He thought it was Vivienne or Vivienna or was it Vicky. He crawls out of her bed to use the restroom looks back in at her and says something about her being, a little crazy, purple Vivienna. Then stopped himself when looking at her he noticed how young she was and how he hoped she was at least of age.
I guess he not only finds out her age, her first and last name, but who her daddy is. He also learns that just because someone looks like they’re asleep doesn’t mean that they really are. Turns out her daddy is the leading sponsor that owns his contract for the ads, commercials, etc… that he does to make a living. Now he calls to yell at Benny his agent. Who wants to meet with him out of town where they can talk without any press or others to get in their business? They happen to meet you guessed it at the same swim arena where Amelia takes her first swim.
See where they go from here…because now they have a past that needs to be dealt with and a future to look forward too if they can work it out. She is now of age to make her own decisions. That’s only if the truth of the past can truly be revealed and the actors in the nightmares of her past life can tell the truth about her accident before and after. So far Harry is the only one wanting to reveal all yet Amelia is not ready and the other two have issues.
This is an amazingly complex story with a great deal of issues that pose a great deal of thought about each character. The thing I liked best is that the universe felt that Amelia and Harry had healed enough be bring them to the point of reconnecting them. They were both stronger than they knew and ever were when they were when they were younger. This is a must read. I give this 5 stars. Provided by Net Galley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dive in and wade in the wonderful world of "Where We Belong"... 22 February 2015
By Jen Valencia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Amelia Baide and Harry Jamieson have known each other since they were children, thanks to their mutual love for the water in general and competitive swimming specifically. There's always been chemistry and a spark in their friendship but neither did much about the mutual attraction. When they're both involved in an accident that prematurely ends Amelia's swimming career and has her not remembering certain details about the accident, they go their separate ways, only to find each other again six years later.

On the anniversary of the accident that took her life for several minutes and changed it ever since, Amelia Baide finds herself at odds, yet again, with her fiancé. She decides to leave, but after running out of gas, she finds herself at a swimming center where an old friend automatically assumes she's there to swim. Unexpectedly, another old friend, Harry Jamieson, arrives at the same place and though there's some awkwardness at first, the connection between them appears to have never dissipated.

Harry carries with him secrets regarding the night of the accident. He's not sure when and how to confess what he knows to Amelia but one thing he knows for sure is that he wants to help Amelia return to competitive swimming. He offers to help her out as her coach but refuses to get in the water with her, unable to tell her that his reasons are connected to what happened during the accident. Their renewed friendship finally becomes something more when Amelia ends her engagement.

Even as Amelia and Harry get ready for Amelia's swimming competitions, the past looms over them. When the truth regarding that night is exposed, Amelia's relationships with people she thought she could trust are changed. Harry's part before, during, and soon after the accident has them both putting the brakes on their budding love affair. Is Amelia ready to truly start living again and pursuing both the sport and the man that she's always loved? Is Harry ready to finally forgive himself for that night?

I quite liked "Where We Belong", a second chance love story that centered on the lead characters love for swimming. I've been a swimmer almost all my life and even competed in my youth so I had a great appreciation for the way the sport wasn't just a mere backdrop in this book. Both the lead characters had their flaws but being able to witness their re-connection as the impetus to truly begin living their lives again was like a journey towards hope, forgiveness, and, ultimately, redemption.

If you're looking for a story that combines sports and romance but in equal measure, this is definitely one that you should seriously check out. I love being able to read stories that are original and presented in a mature and heartfelt manner and "Where We Belong" just happens to be one of those stories. Amelia and Harry's struggle to overcome the past and become the best versions of their present selves is inspiring and one that I encourage you to experience for yourselves. This gets 4.5 stars! ♥
