'It's a truth universally acknowledged that inside every woman is an inner-psycho, just waiting to be unleashed' and Alice Murphy, known as Murph to her two best friends, is living up to this statement. Ever since she was nine it has been Nash, her, and Harley - always there for each other, protecting each other, and being each other's shoulder to lean on. But Alice knew instantly that it was her and Nash who would end up together, living happily ever after. And for a while their childhood friendship grew into love but when tragedy struck and Alice had to return home to take over her mother's bakery, Nash and her broke up, but Alice knew he would come back to her eventually. So when he walks into her shop one day, she knows this is it. But Nash is there to invite her to his wedding in a week and Alice is blindsided. How could he love someone else when she has always been there for him? As Alice goes into crazy mode (flag football and laxatives is all I'm going to say here!), she struggles to let go of her vision of what her future should be and even ropes Harley into pretending to be her boyfriend, even though that is simply laughable. Or is it? Because as Alice starts to see the changes in Nash and herself, she cannot help but notice how handsome and caring Harley has always been, and how he has always been there for her when she needed him. Could she have been looking in the wrong place for love all of this time? And as Nash starts to have doubts about what he is doing, will Alice fall for her first love again or go after the new feelings that are beginning to bud for one of her oldest friends?
I instantly connected with Alice and while I wanted to shake some sense into her on so many occasions, I could relate to her and her dreams that had been taken away from her. Learning about the three main characters and their very special relationship gave me all of the feels, knowing that they were all that each other had through some very harsh times, and I could see why Alice clung on to her relationship with Nash. There are plenty of laughs and drama along the way, and a certain sizzling scene that will have you fanning yourself to take down your temperature, and as I watched Alice figure out her feelings and recognise other peoples, I desperately wanted her to make the right decision for everyone's sake.
WHERE WE BELONG by Shann McPherson is an addictive romance and I cannot wait for more from this very talented author.
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, General Fiction (adult)
Well, I love these small town America stories. I've no idea – being British – whether there really are towns like this, but I love the idea of everyone having friends, being there for each other. Of course its Always Sunshine and Warmth – and here in UK that's often in short supply, so that's a huge bonus. BBQ in the rain, summer dress for night out ruined by downpour, hair carefully coiffed and makeup done, then wrap up in warm hat that ruins the effect – that's UK summers. I love the fake GF/BF trope too.
Poor Murph, all set for a proposal from long time boyfriend, on and off romance, and then...he hands her an invite to his wedding. Oh I could feel her heart breaking. When we learned more about their past my heart was sad for her over again, and I wondered why she saw Nash as her HEA, when to me he was selfish and unreliable.
Still, here he is with his new love, and she wants to put a brave face on and in the momentary instinct claims Harley is hers. Poor Harley – give the guy credit, he goes along with it, but as we learn he's been picking her up for years, What's one more time.
And it could have been a fun read for me if Murph hadn't been so unpleasant to Anna. Its not her fault Nash loves her, and I really didn't like Murph's actions. Acting on the spur of the moment is one thing, but deliberate actions? Nope. Not in my playbook.
It may not bother you and you may laugh at parts, I did have a silent snigger at one even as I was annoyed at it....hey- I'm human, it set a funny visual. And I want to know why Harley writes his name on his clothes?
Overall it ends well, I'm not entirely sure I was convinced by it, but its a fun, easy read.
Stars: Three, I enjoyed parts, but a) didn't understand why Murph was so set on Nash and b) didn't like some of her actions.

1. Engaging and easy to read. Pulls you in at the start and cruises along smoothly. I wasn't distracted or thinking of snacks.
2. None of the characters did anything to get on my nerves. I've read a lot of books lately with totally unlikable leads. Shannon's characters were likeable, and their mistakes realistic. Yay!
My only regret (really just a personal choice), is that I've read a lot of her work on Wattpad, and this lady can write one hell of an arousing sex scene. Whew! There is chemistry/sexual tension between the characters, but I really miss the smut. Plus, I think it makes the reader burn more calories. lol
That being said, I will definitely read future books from Shannon, smut or not.
