      A lot of people really liked this oneI unfortunately am not one of themI was really looking forward to Gianni and Zan's story, but it really fell flat for me.Maybe my expectations were too high, because I liked the previous book so much.Gianni is one of the Dombruso clan (former maffia) and Zane is Christian's (book 7), very famous and recluse father. Gianni is bi and has a thing for older lovers. He wants someone with whom he can feel safe and protected. He is hired by Christian, who wants him [...]

      Okay. I loved this. Are you shocked? You shouldn't be. The beginning, it wasn't my favorite but I get why it was done and I will tell you it was totally worth the frustration to get Gianni and Zan to a pivotal point. Oh boy, was it ever worth it. This one to me, had that bit of realism that kinda grounded it with Zan's mental issues as well as Gianni's hang ups. Sure, there was the total OTT moments with Nana but this series would be seriously lacking with out them. But the romance, the idea of [...]

      This series just keeps getting better and better. I'm so happy that more books are on the way!

      I adore this series laughs, tears, smexy times. Just what I needed.

    5. Shannon on said:

      Loved this book! Love this entire series!! The only thing that kept this from 5 stars is the fact that the MCs don't even come close to being together until after 50%. They have times where they're in the same room but nothing romantic. That said, the first halfd really the whole thing is completely entertaining because we still have Nana and her crazy family. Seriously, I was actually cracking up at some of the stuff she did. Cockhenge. lol. That's what happens when you round all your trees and [...]

      While most of the books in this series are saved by the humor and warmth that's imbued in the character interactions, there are a couple here and there that can't be saved. I absolutely loathed Christopher's story, and this one wasn't much better. While Gianni isn't, by the most strict definition, a prostitute, he nonetheless allows himself to be used in exchange for being taken care of, monetarily and emotionally, by his rich lovers. And while I wanted to cheer for Zan when he made it to the ai [...]

      Oh, this may have been the absolute cheesiest of the series yet. I didn't necessarily feel cheesy with the others but this one I did for sure. Still good, still love Nana to the point of out loud laughter and total distraction and will for sure keep reading. But yeah, this one was just way over the top. Weird though, I got choked up a few times. I can't believe there is only one left.

      Another fun, sexy story from Alexa Land. Definitely lighter than the last book. Zan and Gianni are two men with issues, both of whom are so afraid to make a move on the other that it takes over half the book for them to get together. There are plenty of interactions beforehand that continue the contentious employer/employee relationship from Against the Wall as we learn Gianni is not the gigolo most of his family thinks he is. Although this was a lighter, less angsty story than the last one, Zan [...]

      We Can Make It TthroughThis read was excellent. It is heartwarming and sweet and smokin hot. You will laugh so much because Nana and the family is a total trip. You fall in love with all of these characters. You hurt for them in their insecurities and cheer when they work their problems out. Alexa Land writes stories that get you so involved that you have to finish them once you start reading them. I absolutely loved this story. This is one of the best series I've read. Enjoy this read I did. I [...]

    10. Duck on said:

      This wasn't bad. Very fluffy, sweet, no angst. Zan and Gianni were cute together. Nana is up to her same hijinks. I was a little surprised at Gianni's self esteem issues. This whole series is over the top and borderline ridiculous (notice I still read it!) and this edition fits right in.

      I love this series! Everyone needs a Nana in their lives.

      REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCEReading a book from the Firsts and Forever series is like spending a night in with your best friends. There are certain expectations I have with this series and Alexa Land never fails to meet them. I had to stop reading at only 2% in as I could no longer see the words on the page for laughing so much. Nana, in my opinion, has got to be the most iconic female in the MM genre and Cockhenge was just hilarious. This glorious 80 year old woman who defends her family, w [...]

      Alexa has written another brilliant novel in the Firsts and Forever Series!! This has got to be one of my all time favorite series and it looks like the series will be going for quite a while which is fantastic because I love all the characters. The story line remains strong as she continues to link and intertwine the lives of the characters of family and friends. The character development is amazing and I don't think I've missed falling in love with all of them. This book continues with the liv [...]

      I wish I could say I liked this book but there were so many things I didn't like about it. I don't know where to start.I've read every book in the Firsts and Forever Series and most I've enjoy with the exception of two, this being one. This is definitely my least favorite. It was just too sweet. Almost to the point of sickening. I never really felt like we got to know Gianni prior to his story. Very little page time was given to him in previous books like we normally get with the other character [...]

    15. TayaJay on said:

      I'm going to be honest, It's all about Nana and gay homosexual that seem to run deep in that family. She is the Sophia Petrillo of the literary world. I love her antics. She is funny glue to a otherwise boohoo story. I know they are meant to be together because the blurb told me so. I didn't see the connection. Their connection just didn't flow for me. Gianni preach that he wants to be taken care off but he chooses a man who needs carer. It seemed like he wanted to take care of Zan than the othe [...]

      I've loved every book of this series and Belonging is no exception! As I've come to expect, this book made me literally laugh out loud to the point of tears, then promptly broke my heart. Gianni and Zan are both so lonely and damaged. They were the perfect complement to each other and it was beautiful to see them slowly overcome their pasts and learn to trust someone else. I also loved that all the characters from previous books were mentioned and we got an update on their lives! I was thrilled [...]

    17. Deanna Against Censorship on said:

      I have grown to love this entire series. It is fantastic. Hot guys. Mafia types. Men with issues. Nana! Read in order. Another reviewer said this series is like crack and it is - the crack of books. After doctoring up a travel mug of tea, I took one more look out the window. Nana and my brother were standing side by side. They’d struck identical poses, hands on their hips and heads tilted as they contemplated Cockhenge. I chuckled as I headed to the garage. Okay, so sometimes the crazy was pre [...]

      Alexa Land has done it again. I love reading her Firsts and Forever novels. Belonging is a wonderful companion to the series. I laughed so hard I thought my family was ready to commit me. Not to put any spoilers in this review, but Nanna! For those who've read the series'nuff said. This book also brings Christian and Shea as primary support characters. Thank you Alexa for that treat! The book and the series are uniquely gifted with an arc and voice that is easy to read and immensely enjoyable.

      This book was an amazing read! I loved this! It was so funny, emotional& heartwarming . Nana(I love her) cracks me up, I was in tears ;) I had a few cries & 2 big ugly cries, (eek 1 was happy ugly cry though) I love Gi & Zan! Beautifully written! Well done Alexa! Looking forward to reading Coming Home!

    20. Elizabeth on said:

      Alexa Land you are killing me. I absolutely loved this book. It has everything tears, laughs, sex, and most important true love. I haven't read all the books in this series but every one I read it gets better and better looking forward to the next one.

      Another amazing addition to the series. Now looking forward to the next book

      Another awesome read. I love reading this series. There's so many wonderful, amazing and very colorful cast of characters. I can't wait until the next book. Bring it on!

      4.5 starsStill loving this series and will definitely keep reading in the future :)

    24. namericanwordcat on said:

      3.5 Stars I love this series as an all together fest of crazy and sweet with nice character development. The plots are always bit much. Here, there is a really lack of communication in the start of the attractions. Its silly.However, Zander and Gianni together are great once they get together. We get all the couple time I crave. I love that Zander is another hero's in the father and I love the discussion of attraction to older men. The cast and setting are as always for me, a real good time And [...]

      The book of the missed opportunities.First of all I need to say I know that this series has no relation to reality and initally I've started reading it because of the humor, the funny banter and the hot sex (and later on because of Nana).This book was kind of a collection of "don'ts".About the first 30% we see nearly nothing of Zan, especially nothing positive. Gianni is hooking up with a douche. We realize, Gianni has probably the lowest self-esteem ever. And here is the missed opportunity. The [...]

    26. Jenny Wood on said:

      I love this series and I knew this one would be amazing! I was so looking forward to Gianni's story and I couldn't wait to see what happened to Zan, I never imagined the way it would go, it wasn't predictable at all so much of it I totally didn't see coming and it was such a welcome surprise! I LOVED seeing Nana's ol tricks and seeing what kinda trouble her and Jessie could get up too and they cracked me up more than once! I can't wait to see Jessies story and it's gonna drive me crazy until we [...]

    27. Helen Manning on said:

      Such a worthy addition to a wonderfully memorable series. Gianni helps his friend Christian; an artist fighting a brain tumor, by assuring him he will look after his reclusive father; Zan a formerly famous musician. Much to Gianni's chagrin Zan ignores him totally or is openly hostile towards him. We have met Gianni in other books and already know that he is floating through his life and engaging in short-term love affairs with older and inappropriate partners; both male and female. We were intr [...]

    28. Arch Bala on said:

      My wish came true when this eight installment of the First & Forever series happened to be Gianni Dambruso and Zan Tillane’s story. Yay! Back book 7 featuring Zan’s son Christian, there was already a brewing story bound to feature Gianni and I was hoping then that he would be paired with Zan! Lo and behold, we’ve got Belonging!By continuously reading this series, I knew I was signing up for something outrageous and totally over the top. This book has it all from the crazy-ass Dambruso [...]

      I am a huge, huge fan of Alexa Land. I discovered her last year and read 5 books in 5 days and then waited for the next and the next.Again, she did not disappoint. She brought flawed characters that you still loved. She never shies away from potentially touchy subjects (cancer, prostitution, PTSD, disabilities) and this time, mental illness.Ms Land's cast of characters is as quirky as ever. Nana will make you laugh out loud in every scene she is in. Her newest"sidekick", Jessie, is just hilariou [...]
