    Both characters in this new book need to trust God, and we hope that as the story progress they are able to let go of their fears and see what God has placed before them!

    Well, 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 be 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.

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.

    You're Gonna Love Me returns readers to the charming, small country town of Thunder Creek. Farmland, orchards, horses, fresh air and friendship - the charm of the setting seeps from the pages and infuses the story. This is a sweeping and relaxing love story. A story about forgiveness and second chances. A story about facing your fears. A story about finding love in places you least expect it.

    You're Gonna Love Me returns readers to the charming, small country town of Thunder Creek. Farmland, orchards, horses, fresh air and friendship - the charm of the setting seeps from the pages and infuses the story. This is a sweeping and relaxing love story. A story about forgiveness and second chances. A story about facing your fears. A story about finding love in places you least expect it.

    When Samantha returns to Thunder Creek to care for her grandmother, the very last person she expects to see in Ruth's hospital room is Nick Chastain. Two years ago Sam and Nick spent eight months dating. Eight months in which Sam spent most of that time fearful he would be injured on one of his wild adventures - kayaking, waterskiing, absailing. They ended their relationship with harsh words and silence. Now Nick, recovering from a serious head injury that has left him with memory loss and other side effects, is staring life over. Thunder Creek offers him peace and a fresh start. Seeing Sam again gives him hope he isn't sure he deserves. Is it worth trying to start a relationship with Sam, can he convince her he is a changed man?

    Imagine a lazy Saturday afternoon. Rolling countryside, warm sunlight, fresh spring flowers scenting the air. Sounds charming, right? That's the best way I can describe this book. It's idyllic. Sam and Nick's story slowly unfolds. Interspersed with the story of their reconnection are little flashbacks, memories of their first relationship. It gives the readers an insight into their past, the hurts and fears that crippled their first go at love. This time around, they are both very cautious, each with their own reasons. Sam isn't sure she wants to trust Nick again or risk her heart. Nick isn't sure he should risk a future where his health might impact the lives of others. As they reconnect, they learn to accept each other, face their fears, and, ultimately, trust God. I really enjoyed the gentle pace of this story. Nick and Sam take their time getting to know one another again. It takes time for Sam to work through her fears and Nick reaches out to his new friends and God while questioning the direction for his life. Combined with some helpful love and guidance from Sam's grandmother, Ruth, they make a gradual transition back into trust, friendship, and love.

    Derek and Brooklyn from You'll Think Of Me, Robin Lee Hatcher's previous book, are prominent characters in this book, as is Ruth, Sam's grandmother, and many of the other residents of Thunder Creek. It is fun to see their stories continue as we start a new journey with Nick and Sam.

    I highly recommend this book for readers who enjoy light and heartfelt stories of romance, love, faith, family, and second chances.

    This was a beautiful, heart-wrenching story. Samantha and Nick's past relationship that abruptly ended has some unresolved hurts. When Samantha moves to Idaho to help her grandmother recuperate after a bad accident, she and Nick are thrown back in the same sphere with common friends and of course, Nick's part in Samantha's grandmother rescue after an accident.

    This was a beautiful, heart-wrenching story. Samantha and Nick's past relationship that abruptly ended has some unresolved hurts. When Samantha moves to Idaho to help her grandmother recuperate after a bad accident, she and Nick are thrown back in the same sphere with common friends and of course, Nick's part in Samantha's grandmother rescue after an accident.

    Both Samantha who is still wondering exactly why things broke off so abruptly, and Nick who has good reasons for the silence are wondering how their past relationship can be resolved with the events from the past. Nick's reflection on his past, his memories that come back with force, his trauma, and pain in the past, and the uncertainties for his future, while making choices that affect them both, was well written, and convincingly told.

    With genuine, honest, hurting hearts, these two main characters and the supporting characters create a convincing, romantic read. Their faith, and the growth in how they believe are also an important part of the story. Lovely western setting, family elements and support for the characters, and best a HEA!

    "Life is full of chaos, no matter how hard you try to keep it in order. You have to live it the best you can."

    Samantha Winters has been living in fear since losing her father in a skiing accident many years ago. Fear governs her life and has, in part, cost her a wonderful relationship with Nick Chastain. Nick liked living on the edge, kayaking, white water rafting, you name it. It made him happy. But Samantha couldn't deal with it and they broke up.

    Two years later Samantha moves to Thunder Creek

Nick liked living on the edge, kayaking, white water rafting, you name it. It made him happy. But Samantha couldn't deal with it and they broke up.

    Two years later Samantha moves to Thunder Creek, Idaho from her home in Oregon to take care of her grandmother after a serious ankle break. Imagine her shock when Nick walks into her grandmother's hospital room. What is he doing here? And why is this happening to her now?

    But Nick Chastain is not the same man anymore. They have a second chance after a tragic happening in his life. Will Samantha allow her fears to continue to control her life or will she trust God and allow Him to lead her?

    I have long been a fan of Robin Lee Hatcher's work. Her stories are emotionally charged and relevant to today's situations. She explores the human heart and mind in her books and the reader comes away with a valuable lesson. Many people live with fear in their lives, but God does not desire for His children to live in torment. He has a plan for our lives and it's a good plan, not one where we have to live trapped in anything. Chalk up another good book for Hatcher with 'You're Gonna Love Me'.

    Samantha Winters has a good job as an accountant but the job is no longer satisfying to her, When she receives word her grandmother has been injured in a fall from a horse she takes all her sick days and vacation time from work and uses them to return to Thunder Creek,Idaho to care for her gran. Nothing prepares her for what she sees in her grans' hospital room though. She sees her old flame Nick. They have a romantic past but they broke it off because he was quite the outdoor adventurer and risk taker and she is a worrier and reserved after her father's fatal ski accident. Can they peacefully coexist in the same town now that they'll be seeing each other often? Will old hurts harden their hearts towards each other or is there a second chance at love coming for these two?

    I really loved the character Gran. She is a real sweetheart and would love to sit and have a cup of tea with her. Samantha and Nick are a wonderful and warm couple and I really enjoyed learning their story and seeing how they matured as people. I loved that this was a consistently faith based story where the characters cared about their faith journey. Their faith is important to them!

    Beautiful story of caring,forgiveness and faith.

    ou're Gonna Love Me by Robin Lee Hatcher has a gorgeous cover that gripped my attention. I love how the woman is totally focused on the man in the picture, and he leans in capture her gaze. This drew me into the story right away. As for the novel, I knew it was a contemporary romance, so I knew what I was expecting when I picked up the book. I knew I was going to get a quick romance with a lot to tension thrown at the couple as they decide if they want to be together over everything else fighting for their attention.

    With predictable plot, I knew that Sam and Nick would end up together. But I think the fun part of some contemporary romances is trying to figure out what conflicts keep them apart and why. What does it take for the couple to decide that they were completely right for each other? This time around with You're Gonna Love Me I had a hard time enjoying the novel. I knew where the novel was headed, so I got bored. Sam and Nick seemed very one-dimensional to me. I really didn't care what happened to either one of them. There story wasn't that interesting.

    While I enjoyed returning to the small town of Thunder Creek and seeing Derek and Brooke from the first novel in this series, You'll Think of Me, and how much their marriage and life has changed since the first book, I wasn't drawn into Sam and Nick's stories as much. I enjoying watching the world around them interact with the couple. I love the old house that Nick bought, but I knew that it was a home that he bought with Sam and a future family in mind.

    Overall, You're Gonna Love Me by Robin Lee Hatcher is a predictable, unoriginal novel that does return to Thunder Creek, Idaho, but I had a hard time getting engrossed in the novel and the couple. They didn't seem realistic enough for me. I wanted more from the story.

    I received a complimentary copy of You're Gonna Love Me by Robin Lee Hatcher from Thomas Nelson Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

    I wanted to love this book, but about half way though it started to drag. I felt like it went from really good to stagnant. And then it was on hyperdrive, but at that point I had started to loose interest.

    I wanted to love this book, but about half way though it started to drag. I felt like it went from really good to stagnant. And then it was on hyperdrive, but at that point I had started to loose interest.

    They went from dating to engaged in three days, Three! And I realize that they dated before, but there was reasons that they ended the relationship and even though they had been around each other I didn't feel like there was a reflectionary time period to devote the rest of a life time with the person. Also, it was like they solved their problems with trusting each other rather quickly. It almost felt like the author started with a good idea, and then couldn't figure out how to resolve, and then just hurried through.

    So this was not a bad book, it had tons of potential, however it could have been better.

    I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

  • Lucinda

    2 1/2 stars.

    The story was okay, but it had the potential to be so much more. I didn't see any reason to include the grandmother's POV. In a romance, there should have been only Nick's and Sam's.

    The author has problems with the transitions between chapters. It broke the flow and made the reading harder.
