Francesca is happy with Ian, finally. They have been through a lot together but it seems like these two are finally set for a future together. But then Ian disappears. Francesca has no way to contact him, no way to see if he is okay or hurt. Sadness quickly turns to anger and hurt and Francesca is ready to move on, or so she tells herself. Ian has put her through too much and Francesca tells herself she has to move on. Of course, that is easier said than done when Francesca is still drawn into Ian's business dealings, still friends with his lovely grandparents, and still mourning the loss of their love. When Ian steps back into her life, will Francesca forgive and forget?

BECAUSE WE BELONG is the third book in Beth Kery's BECAUSE YOU ARE MINE series, starring wealthy Ian and artistic Francesca. This is a book series that is truly appreciated when you read it from the very beginning so you can see how these two met and fell in love. While it is possible to enjoy BECAUSE WE BELONG as a standalone, I highly recommend reading the series together. This is a book that features a lot of heartbreak, unfortunately. Francesca does not know how to move forward when Ian leaves her behind but yet, she cannot forget him. I felt awful for her but I just knew that Ian had to have a reasonable explanation. Beth Kery is a fabulous writer and makes their reconciliation truly wonderful, though it is definitely still heart wrenching. There is a villain in the mix too who has designs of his own on Francesca. Ian and Francesca still do not have an easy road in front of them and BECAUSE WE BELONG shows that even a timeless love is not without its pitfalls. However, I believed in these two and I think all readers who have taken this journey with them will relish their hard-earned ending. Kudos to Beth Kery, an author who is not afraid to take chances on her characters. Her belief in love enduring all makes this a book to enjoy over and over again.
