    A return to Thunder Creek Idaho and delightful hints, if you haven’t read You’ll Think of Me, and clues for those that haven’t, but for me I love this place the word pictures offered by the author make it breath taking.

    Can two broken people that had a relationship put it back together, they end up states away from where they began, and now they end up in the same place at the same time, coincidence?

    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.

    "None of us knows what the future holds. Much of what happens in life will never make sense to our mortal minds. But nothing is random or by accident. Our God still reigns, and He still has a plan for every one of us." (p 143)

    I adore Gran! Love her wisdom and her patience and the way she opens her heart to everyone. She lives her faith, even as she sweetly conspires to see her granddaughter into a happily-ever-after. Gran and her friends may be secondary characters but their support is pivotal to the story. Love how Hatcher writes 'real' -- makes you feel like you are stepping into an actual town with the kind of folks you'd want for neighbours and friends.

    Sam comes home to help her grandma, but the tables are turned when Gran helps her work her way through some crippling life choices. Because Sam lives in fear. She holds on to it and nurtures it to the point she hardly has a life at all. Such a contrast to Zach who lives loud and exuberantly...or he did until circumstances changed. Now he carries around his own fears, different from Sam's but just as incapacitating. Theirs is a moving second-chance love story and it doesn't come easy! Their struggles are relatable and there were times my faith in the outcome actually wavered. Because fear can be a bully that's hard to stand up to. Loved the faith aspect in this book as much as I did the romance!

    And fans of the Thunder Creek series (this is book two) will be thrilled over the page time Derek and Brooklyn (You'll Think of Me) get in this one. Mind you, don't despair if you haven't read the first book because You're Gonna Love Me reads fine as a standalone (but I bet you won't be able to resist getting the first book after you read this one!)

    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.

    "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.

    Samantha Winters broke up with Nick Chastain because he was a professional daredevil, a college professor whose out-of-class adventures mean he’s an adrenaline-seeking modern Indiana Jones. Two years later, she’s back in her home town of Thunder Creek for three months, to help her grandmother recover from a riding accident. Nick is there, working on her brother’s farm. Why?

    Samantha Winters broke up with Nick Chastain because he was a professional daredevil, a college professor whose out-of-class adventures mean he’s an adrenaline-seeking modern Indiana Jones. Two years later, she’s back in her home town of Thunder Creek for three months, to help her grandmother recover from a riding accident. Nick is there, working on her brother’s farm. Why?

    Nick was injured in a white-water rafting accident not long after he and Sam broke up. He suffers from memory loss, which means he can no longer teach, and he’s been told to stay away from the daredevil activities, as another accident could kill him. So he’s installing irrigation systems in Idaho. On Sam’s brother’s organic farm.

    It doesn’t take long for the two to reconnect. It also doesn’t take long for the sparks to fly, as the two realise their old problems are still bubbling under the surface. I found Samantha frustrating. I could understand her fear that something might happen to Nick as he’s off doing all these dangerous things, but people choke to death on vegetables. We can’t live our lives in fear, or we’d never leave the house.

    We're made in the image of God and God is the creator. Thus, we are all called to create.But that is Sam’s problem: she wants to feel safe. That’s why she’s stuck in a job she doesn’t really enjoy, because that’s easier than looking for another job. I can relate to that. If the current job allows you the time, money, and mental headspace to pursue hobbies, why change?

    But I also found Nick frustrating, for not telling Samantha about his accident, and for not telling her the extent of his injuries. Especially for not telling her he was no longer the adventuring daredevil she’d broken up with.

    I guess the plus part of these character quirks is it made them feel like real people. The opposites-attract plot isn’t original. It’s a romance so we all know how it’s going to end (if you weren’t sure, the clue is in the title). But the author manages to take what could be a cookie-cutter romance up a level with well-developed characters who are anything but cliche. Even though I knew what was going to happen, I wanted to see it play out on the page.

    I especially liked the way the Christian faith was woven into the plot. It gave an added depth to the plot and to the characters, but it didn’t provide an “easy out”. The characters couldn’t just pray and have everything be fixed. That’s not real life, and it’s not good fiction either.

    You’re Gonna Love Me is the sequel to You’ll Think of Me (Derek and Brooklyn’s story), but can easily be read as a standalone. Personally, I’d recommend starting at the beginning of the series—while You’re Gonna Love Me was good, I thought You’ll Think of Me was better. I’ll be interested to see whose story we get in the next visit to Thunder Creek.

    Recommended for fans of family-based contemporary Christian romance stories.

    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.
