Review: Anywhere with You by Kaylee Ryan - With You #1

Anywhere with You

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Allison Hagan has not lived the life of a normal teenager. Her parents died in a car crash when she was ten, and she has been living with her elderly grandmother who happens to be her only living relative ever since. Allison became best friends with the boy next door, Aiden. Aiden’s family has taken her in as part of their own, which is why when her gran insists that she live in the dorms at college, Allison chooses to attend the same school as Aiden.

Liam MacCoy is a college senior and quarterback of his college football team. Liam is rumored to be first round draft pick for the NFL following graduation, as is his best friend, Aiden. Liam has one focus and that’s football, that is until his little sister introduces him to her roommate Allison. Since he met her, he hasn't been able to think of anything else.

Liam is not a relationship kind of guy, and Allison wants it all. She wants the romance and the family that she grew up without. Will Liam overcome his fear of relationships as well as the tangle of friendships to give Allison everything she wants?

What I think:
This book is so hard to rate. I loved the storyline and the love, but why so cliché? A lot of things in this book were repetitive, like how they told each other how much they love each other almost every 5 sentences. The instant love was also kind of over the top. Sadly I can't say this is a bad book either and I might even read the next two books in this series. It's not the kind of book to read when you want an awesome storyline, beautiful use of words to describe everything and plot twists or unexpected events to happen in any way. This book is predictable, but still keeps you reading for some reason. I guess I sometimes just need something you can read without using your brains. Not good, not bad. Just a typical romantic, feel-good story to read when it's shitty outside and you're feeling lonely.
