Reviewed by Dawn Vickers on behalf of Kindle Friends Forever.

Seven years ago Amelia was an Olympic swimmer. She’d won a silver medal as she was the second fastest woman in the pool. One night everything changed. She had an accident and was dragged from a lake never to swim again. Now aged twenty-four, she still suffers, she’s still afraid to get back into the water, and she still can’t really remember much. She has a fiancé but she’s not happy. He doesn’t seem to care or understand her.

On the sixth anniversary of her accident, she finds herself at a pool and who does she meet? Harry! Harry was her swimming partner and friend. He had always fought his attraction for Amelia, and hadn’t seen her since that tragic night. He’s fighting his own demons. He hasn’t gotten back into the water either and now is a coach who prefers training swimmers rather than being one.

When Harry meets Amelia again at the pool, it’s clear to him that she doesn't remember that night or what happened. He decides to offer to train her and get her back into the water where she belongs. Even though she isn't in shape, with Harry’s guidance, she starts to feel alive again and determined to get back to the top of her game. Feelings between Harry and Amelia are coming back to life. There had always been something but it was never acted upon. Does Harry have secrets of that night and Mia — is she engaged to Kristopher? Their connection to each other is solid and it’s not just because swimming is involved. Harry is there every step of the way; cheering her on from the side of the pool as she competes.

When secrets and lies are finally revealed, will Amelia be able to cope or will she slip away from her life and swimming once again?

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 while...so 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.

I was kindly gifted a copy by the author for an honest review - (thank you Eve!)

Oh. My. Gosh. THIS BOOK! Just so many feels!! It's just so, so, beautiful and heart felt and up-lifting!! I felt so damn good when I finished the book, I don't think I've ever smiled so hard - *insert a happy crying face here*

Amelia Baide was once the second fastest woman in the pool and won an Olympic Silver Medal as a teenager. All set to become the next greatest thing her life was going, well, swimmingly. But after one fatal night her world drastically changed.

Now 24 she hasn't set a foot in the water since that night 6 years ago - crashing into a lake and drowning has made the one thing she loved her ultimate fear. Nightmares of that night, the night she died for several long minutes and lost everything, haunt her everyday and she now merely goes through the motions of her life but isn't truly living it.

Harry Jamieson was one of Amelia's bestfriends and teammates - he was there cheering her on and supporting her for as long as she can remember but after that night she never saw him again.

Unlike Amelia, Harry can remember everything about that night in the lake and his guilt has eaten away at him ever since. Like Amelia he too hasn't set foot in the pool and now stands firmly on the edge training other Olympic hopefuls. With him being in high demand his life was going well until one drunken night goes a step too far and now he's losing contracts thick and fast.

With both of them still drowning in the past a chance encounter brings them back together. Now back in his life Harry can't let go of her again and offers her the chance of a life time - to train with him and live her Olympic dream.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!! 28 Feb. 2015
By Beatriz from Cover to Cover Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The first thing I loved about this story is all the memories from my childhood it brought back. I used to swim when I was younger and this book brought it all back. The bond you form with your teammates. When I was a kid, my swimming team was my second family. The love for swimming, the need to push yourself to all your limits, the adrenaline. Best feelings!!

The second thing I loved about it, it's a second chance romance story!! Only my favorite type!!!! The story is good, has a bit of everything; misunderstandings, drama, some funny bits, romance and a sweet couple. It also has well developed characters. I really, really liked Amelia and Harry. I loved their friendship then relationship. I liked the side characters, but sometimes I didn't connect with them much. But its okay cause I connected with the main characters.

There were a couple of parts I struggled with, I was confused with some bits. But overall it was very enjoyable for a debut novel. I kept on reading and it was worth it, cause I really loved the whole story. I recommend it and will be buying the author's next books. :)

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 while...so 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 A Memorable Story Unlike Any Other 23 Feb. 2015
By Danielle Urban - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Where We Belong is an inspirational and most compelling story of its kind. Readers who fell in love with The Fault in Our Stars will fall in love with this incredible novel written by Eve Connell. Seventeen year-old Amelia Baide was the second fastest swimmer until the fatal accident in which she crashed into a lake and pulled out without a pulse. This has since caused the exceptional swimmer to stay away for swimming until strange events leave her at a swimming pool once more. Harry Jamieson has had his heart set out for only one woman, Amelia Baide. The night of the fatal crash they both shared a moment that only Harry remembers. Every single secret moment of it is still a vivid memory for him. But will Amelia eventually remember that moment too? And where then will that leave them both?

Where We Belong is a novel that will move the hearts and minds of many. I enjoyed reading this spectacular novel written by Eve Connell. Her talents have led her to creating this stunning and memorable masterpiece. I could not stop reading this novel, until I finished every chapter. The characters are realistic and believable beyond what words can say. Every reader will feel drawn deep into the story plot following Amelia and her journey through the anniversary of that one horrific event in her life. Every reader has to read this story. A beautifully told story with a powerful message that all readers won’t want to miss. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to everyone and give it a full five stars.

Will Harry get to be with Amelia, facing the demons of their pasts and move on together? Set in the world of swimming it’s a story of second chances, misunderstandings, overcoming fears, and fighting for what you want and of course, finding love. It’s told from a joint point of view, beautifully written and emotional so you may even require some tissues!!

This is Eve's début novel. I think she’s done fantastically well and so looking forward to more from her in the future.
