Allison Hagan or Ash didn’t live a life of a normal teenager. Orphaned at an early young age by the sudden death of her parents, her life had revolved in studying and taking care of her grandmother. She didn’t go to proms, make a lot of friends or had a relationship. All she has is her grandmother and her best friend Ace who had been their neighbor. Since she didn’t have any family, she was taken by Aiden’s family to be part of their own. Instead of allowing her to commute, her grandmother had insisted her to live in the dorms and finally live her life and not worry about her.
Here comes Liam – a college senior and the star quarterback of his college football team. According to rumors, he’ll be the first round draft pick for the NFL after graduation. He’s much focused and one thing he wanted to achieve and has been working on is for him to make it to the NFL. That is until he met his sister’s roommate Allison – suddenly his priorities started not to matter, for there is this one girl who he could not get out from his mind. He does not do relationships, but Allison wanted it all. Will he risk it and everything he worked for to get the girl?
Allison grew up without a family, and she wanted was one. For the first time, she wanted someone else too. Liam was someone from her dreams – a prince charming. The only problem is that, he was to focus on sports that he wasn’t sure if he was ready to commit himself. I liked Allison – especially when she knew what she’s worth and would never settle for less. She was attracted to him and somehow she knew it was futile to fight the attraction. But she tried, set some rules, and took the risk. I adore her friendship with Aiden, it was safe, secure and real. I would love for them to get together – but seeing her with Liam, there is an unmistakable sparks that is missing from her and Aiden.
I love how the both of them handled their relationship. They did not rush it. They took their time until their ready. But once they were into it, it was just pretty amazing relationship. (Yes!!! It’s a kind of relationship you’d want for your own) Liam can be over protective at times but he does it because he was totally into her. I wanted to read and I am so hoping it would be Hales and Aiden next. It’s something I am looking forward to.
I enjoyed reading Anywhere with You – it was off-the charts sweet, not to the point of cheesy. It is a feel-good novel that will make you fall in love with both characters and the people that is surrounding them. There is no over-dramatics that will make your heart ache so much. Instead, this novel with make you smile, swoon at most times and just add some extra beats to your heart.
