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.

  • Dee/ bookworm
    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 tim...

    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...
  • Susan K
    Romance, clean, Christian faith elementsThis 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...
  • Sarah
    If you enjoy books filled with romance, faith and turning the page, this book is made for you! Told in a Hallmark fashion, you'll fall in love with the story of Samantha & Nick. Their characters are well developed, the backdrop of the story is relaxing and a wonderful pace to help you fall in love. This is by far one of my favorites of Robin Hatchers books. I couldn't put it down until I was finished as I had to know what was happening with these...
  • Haley S
    I have mixed feelings about this book. And unfortunately, they aren’t all good.I guess the first thing I have to say is that I did not like Samantha at all. I didn’t understand her. The reason why is because there was no back story–or not a lot. To me, it seemed as though Samantha was simply scared of everything. I only understood why she didn’t like Nick doing all the things because I read the synopsis above. However, as soon as I starte...

  • Kelly Bridgewater
    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 the...
  • E-Reader Addict
    This book was a bit of a departure from my normal romance read. I don’t usually go for the Christian romances - mostly because it seems the main point of the book is proselytizing instead of telling a good story first (not that I have anything against proselytizing, it’s just that if I want to learn about Jesus, I’m not gonna go to a romance book for that). Admittedly, it’s been a long time since I read a Christian romance, so I decided t...
  • Kristi
    I liked the first book in this series which also happened to be my first read by this author. I was cautiously optimistic that I would like this book as much as the first. After reading just a few pages though I knew this was a book I was going to enjoy. Robin Lee Hatcher has created a town you can't help but enjoy spending time in. The main focus of this story is Sam and Nick who meet up again unexpectedly in Thunder Creek. Much has happened in ...

  • Deana Dick
    It’s always nice to visit old friends and a beautiful little town tucked away in the mountains. I remember going to Idaho when I was a kid. I never forgot the beautiful scenery and the quaint little towns we drove through. The author has brought those memories back with a delightful story . Sam has everything going for her far away from Idaho. She is a great accountant but I wouldn’t say she is exactly happy. After losing her father in a trag...

  • Nicole
    I really wanted to like this book. I enjoyed a western written by the same author years ago, so I wanted to give her a try again.I feel like this is an author who's writing style I have personaly outgrown. It comes across very easy to read, a very simple plot ,and very low on the romance (which is fine if that is what you are looking for). I personally look for writing that draws me in more, a plot with more complex characters, and chemistry you ...
  • Carol
    You're Gonna Love Me is a story of reunification, acceptance, anguishment, bewilderment, chivalrousness, compassion gentleness and Faithfulness. Nick was in the right place at the right time to call 911 for gran - who was falling off her horse - who is gran you ask? Samantha's gran. Who is Samantha you may ask/ Well you ask good questions - she just happened to be Nicks ex girlfriend who - when they broke up went away - and now when gran got hurt...
  • Melissa
    WHat I liked- This was a sweet clean story with a great message. I liked both characters and the supporting cast was good. You could tell this was a second book but it was its own story. The setting was a really good part of the story. UNfortunately the things I didn't like( which beat the things I did)- I love dialog between characters especially the love interest. These two spent most of the whole book not talking and that drove me crazy. I fel...

    A heart warming love story.Samantha seems to be a loving, caring kind of person. It is so hard to watch her struggle with her faith. She clings to fear as though that is what sustains her instead of God. Everything has a place and everything has to stay in that place or it sets off alarms in her soul. She is so fearful of the 'what if's' that she isn't living the life God intends her to have.Nick is so broken by his accident that he is afraid to ...

    What fun to head back to Thunder Creek and catch up with a few friends. I enjoyed Sam and Nick's story and the healing journey they both went on to find their love. God worked through both of them to bring them exactly where He wanted them. I thought it was a sweet story and worth a read. *I received an advanced copy of this book*
  • Kathryn Steffen
    I absolutely ADORED this book. I was worried they were going to completely change one or both characters but they both grew and helped each other. It was delightful and fun and I enjoyed every minute.
  • Melissa
    Hatcher has created a heartwarming romance with a beautifully depicted faith story about healing from brokenness and learning to overcome fear.See full review here:Life Fully Booked Review of You're Gonna Love Me
  • Denise Hershberger (100 Pages per Hour)
    I really enjoyed the first book in this series, so I was excited for book two. And I think I enjoyed it even more.I really liked how honest Nick is with himself throughout the story. His ability to step back and go through the techniques he knows to help himself through the hard times is impressive. I liked that even though his life changed fairly drastically for him that he still found a way to get back to living.I honestly was annoyed with Sam ...

    You’re Gonna Love Me is book 2 from Robin Hatcher’s series., Thunder Creek. I thought it was okay. It has some sweet moments that I enjoyed but there were many slow ones, as well. I am not quite sure how I felt about Sam and Nick. I just cannot put it into words. I just was not that connected to them. My favorite part was catching up with the couple from book one, You’ll Think of Me.I give this book 3 stars. I am hoping book 3 will be more ...
  • Pascale
    This moved a little too slowly for me and I had trouble getting into the story. There was too much description, not enough dialogue. I didn't read it to the end. This was the first time I read anything from this author. Not sure if I would give the writer another chance. It's clean but the writing style is a bit boring for me. I got a complimentary copy from NetGalley.
