Anyone looking for a good read?

This is not it, seriously!!

You know all the things we hateeee?! This book has it ALL.
The story is as flat as a washboard for me. LoL

I wanted to shoot myself sooo any times reading this.

Most of my expressions consisted of constant eye rolling! (Note the double usage of gifs below)

4 ‘Sweet With Extra Sugar On Top’ Stars,

Allison spent her life alone taking care of her grandmother. She was her only family, along her neighbors and their son, Aiden, who was her best-friend and non-biological brother. So when she goes to college she goes to the same one as Aiden, on the first time she meets his roommate, and ironically, her roommate’s older brother, Liam.
Liam is the college team’s quarterback and he’s rumored to be picked for the NFL, so his priority is football and he doesn’

Dear Ms. Ryan,

Editors are wonderful people. You shouldn't be scared of them. You should find them. Embrace them. Love them.

Because they help prevent you from publishing crap like this.

Let's look at a few examples of how an editor could have been your friend:

1) whine vs. wine

2) your vs. you're

3) "man card" and its SERIOUS overuse (and awful use)

4) long-winded, stilted, unrealistic monologues that are boooorrrinnnggggg

5) re-telling the same event from two points of view... including the dialogue

This book was insta love and had a very juvenile feel to the story and writing. There wasn't any drama, none, zero, zip, zilch. This book, minus the sex scene, would have been better suited for a teenager.
I'd forgotten that I've tried this author before and I wasn't a fan. By about 30% in I was ready to quit because at that point the reason they weren't together was because he didn't think he could have a relationship and she refused to settle for anything casual. After all any girl he'd been with before only held his attention for a short period and football was his greatest focus 🤦 he couldn't even stand to see her hug her best friend who was a male but really he just couldn't give her what she ...more

This was such a sweet book. There was no cheating, love triangles, or bad boy players. This was a story about a young woman entering college and the world for the first time. She has had to endure more loss than any one person should at such a young age. She meets the quarterback for her university’s football team and falls head over heels in love with Liam, despite his firm stance on not having time for relationships. They begin seeing more of each other and Liam starts to have a change of hear ...more

This was a sickeningly sweet NA romance so if that's not your thing, this book is not for you.

Allison's only family is her Gran but she persuades Allison to live her life and go to college.

Life is a giant canvas, Allie, and you should throw as much paint on it as you can

She meets Liam, her roommates brother and it was insta love.

I'm not a big fan on insta love but in this case they didn't jump straight in and declare their love for one another and so I read on...

Very low angst read. While I don't care for a whole lot of drama, I almost got bored because it was basically just their relationship.

I will definitely read book 2. I'm interested in how Aiden and Hailey will come about since they seem to be skating around each other in this one.

This book was so good and sweet! Typically, when you have sweet romances, they are dull, lame, and far to straight forward. Not this one!!

Anywhere With You had a great amount of love, lust, curiosity, innocence and angst to keep you turning the page.

Plus, the twists... My god! There were a lot of those 'I did not see that coming!' moments.

Liam...ah, Liam. How I loved thee.... HAH! Yes, I totally fell head over haunches for ol' Blue Eyes. Who would

I'm a big fan of cheese. Brie. Cheddar. Ricotta. Camembert. You name it, I'll gladly eat it with a side of crackers & quince paste.

But Anywhere with You was far too cheesy for me!

It was like a cheese pizza. I could peel back the top layer of the story and see what the author was trying to get across. Actually, there were a few, brief shining moments where I really enjoyed the story's characters and where I thought the plot was leading.

But'd rain cheese.

The romance was sickeningly

4.5 stars. I loved this book. So sweet !No drama !Liam is great! on to next one:)
DNF at 29%

All respect to the author for doing something I couldn't have done, but fuck it. I'm so sick of the experienced-male-gets-the-virgin trope that I'm just laying it out like that.

Fuck this hero, seriously. Up to the point where I stopped reading in order to save my sanity, the "hero" kept saying that he was completely drawn to the heroine, but he just needed to "fuck her out of [his] system". I'm so goddamn sick of this trope, I can't even tell you. The back-and-forth bullshit he espouse
One of the sweetest books I have ever read. Great book if you looking for a story with no angst at all.

This is the first book I've read from Kaylee Ryan and while I have a list of authors I like to read from, now and then, I like to read from new authors as well. I decided to buy this book because it had a solid 4.0 rating and reviews were really encouraging. I must admit it wasn't what I was expecting. It wasn't horribly bad, the plot was decent, the college freshman who loses her parents at a tender age and goes live with her Granma. She then meets Aiden who becomes her only male best friend at

Anywhere With You would have been a great story, if Liam MacCoy wasn't such a pansy. I had the hardest time reading his dialogue as a man. He sounded too immature to be a college senior and it was obvious a girl had created his character because he sounded like one. If he had been a real person, I would have personally taken his man-card away. It annoyed me how he treated Allison like she was an infant. Their relationship was very unrealistic.
Liam MacCoy is very focused on his football career

This was a very simple book. Simple story, simple writing, simple plot. But I found it simply wonderful. It is just your basic romance story of a sheltered girl starting college (not really wanting to leave the grandmother who raised her because she is ill) who meets her roommate's brother who happens to be the starting quarterback for the UNC football team set on a career in the NFL. He's focused on his career, she's just finding her way in life never even having a date before. Of course, the s ...more

I LOVE this book! Yes, it is very sweet but I really felt this book had a great story! Allison is a very strong character having dealt with the loss of her parents so young and taking care of her Gram. Liam was just so sexy and perfect! I love how their relationship developed. Sometimes I just really need a low-angst, sugary sweet book and this book was perfect for what I was looking for. Looking forward to reading more by this author!

Allison has lived with her grandmother since the time of her parent's death. Gran is all she knows. Now it is time for Allie to make her mark on the world and go off to college. She is fearful and doesn't want to leave the security of the only family she has left. The only good thing is that her best friend is a senior and UNC and will help guide her along the way.

Allison instantly finds a good friend in her college roommate, Hailey, and finds herself crushing on H

Thank you to Mary of Crazy Book Obsession and Kaylee Ryan for the review copy. This in no way affected my views of the novel.

Wow, this is a first. This is my first 1-star review on my blog. I've always been lenient with rating books. If I didn't like a novel, I still give it 2 stars for "it's okay" because that's how it was. It was still okay because the writing's fine but that I had so many issues over the book that made me dislike it. Before writing thi

I'm so sorry, I just can't finish it.

I liked the idea of falling in love with our best friend's older brother. But seriously, this book is just confusing.

Too much nickname, Dash, Blitzen, Mac, Ash, Ace? Wut, are you freaking kidding me? Pick one and done. Please.

The story went too fast and I don't even feel the chemistry between Allison and Liam. All I know is Liam's handsome face and Allison's hot body and that's it.

I can't give this anymore than 3 stars. I just can't. The writing isn't all that great, including quite a few typos and things that could have easily been caught, and everything seemed very easy and convenient. I usually add in how a book makes me feel while I'm reading it into my rating, typically rating things high. I couldn't fully let emotions take this one. I am contemplating even giving it 2 stars but I enjoyed the characters and definitely cried (view spoiler) ...more

I liked the story, it was cute, but I kinda wished there was a little bit more drama in it. I loved being in Liam's head, "watching another man, even one of my closest friends, touch her or kiss her throws me off kilter." And Allison that girl you can't help but love, "can you honestly blame me: two beefy, sexy as hell football players with bulging muscles helping us move, hello I'm only human." Aidan he's protective of Allison they're like brother and sister, "she is my sister in every sense of ...more

This book is so popular that I was incredibly excited to read it. Now that I've read it, I wish I'd read the reviews on here first. This book is really not well-written. And I mean REALLY not well-written. The dialogue is corny, the book is full of run-ons, comma splices, incorrect homonym usage, and other punctuation errors. I will admit, I was originally gripped by the story. But then Liam got lame and Allie was too weak. Every cliche thing that could happen, did. Main character a virgin- chec ...more

I have to agree with a lot of other reviewers and say that this book was a "sickenly sweet" depiction of "insta-love".

I did like it, but at the same time, I have to admit that the biggest downfall about insta-love romances is the lack of quality or substance to make their relationship believable and more memorable.

This book clearly fits the bill.

ALSO, could Liam be even more of a sap? I mean, for a guy who was like a player on campus he sure does not have the effect of one. He's constantly bein

I was able to reach 25%. Did not finish it. It's so cheesy. I didn't like the transitioning of two POVs. It became repetitive. The alpha male act was unbelievable. But just to be fair, I'm not gonna rate it.
