I know that writing a book is a arduous process. I know, people lay their life and feelings on the line for their novels. However, I AM entitled to my opinion. It is NOT personal. I am treating is review the exact same way, I would treat a bad meal at a, could I please see the manager or the chef please?!

My opinion and it may work for you. I am not telling you not to read the book.

Excellent premise, but the execution is poor and I hate the heroine. An ordinary girl the synopsis says??? Nope. Not in MY OPINION. She is just negative. Everything bothers or annoys her. If she was a nicer person and not so...herself maybe I would have been able to finish it.

Have you ever looked at a book cover and thought, man that is just so gorgeous that I have to have it? Well, that's what happened when I stumbled across Anyone But Him by Cassie Graham. It left me breathless and after reading the synopsis, I knew that the book was no longer a want, but a need. When I finally got the chance to sit down and read it, the love between Jennings and Whitley matched the incredibly gorgeous cover, and I'm so glad that it didn't disappoint!

This is Whitley:

Throughout the first half of this book it was so over-the-top and unbelievable I thought it would be a better fit for a 14-year-old who dreams about accidently running into Justin Bieber and falling in love with him... Until I got to the very poor-written and unnecessary sex scenes (so painful to read) and copy-cat drama that read like it was straight out of Fifty Shades Darker. I then realized that author DID intend this for young adults, she just executed it very poorly.

***ARC in exchange for an honest review / Scandalous Book Blog***

First of all I would like to congratulate the author for writing a story that's original and stirs up so many emotions. Something I hadn't see coming or had thought when reading the blurb.

Enter Jennings, the way he and With met was quite funny....

With is in a dead end relationship with Lark; the campus's golden boy.. and she harbours a secret that is taking her deeper and deeper into the darkness...

Blogger note - I’ve read/been told/heard that it’s only fair within a review to state if you’re friends with the author. I guess some people become a bit too biased and can’t write an honest review, so it helps you decide whether or not they’re telling the truth if you know they have a friendship. So here’s my little disclaimer – I love Cassie Graham. As fabulous of a writer as she is, she’s an even better person. I will scream it from the rooftops that I consider her one of my best friends, and ...more

How to do I find the words to convey my feelings for this book? I had the privilege to beta read this book as it was being written. I begged for more each time.

Incredibly Sweet!

I picked up this book on a recommendation from a friend of mine and was so glad I did! I just adored Whitley & Jennings and their sweet relationship!! "No matter how far I am from you, the moon and stars will always be the same. It's our constant. ... The distance won't matter."
I love that the two had their obstacles and they were forthcoming about them, that they had past issues that they worked to deal with - together and apart.

This was a really great read. I'm so happy it wasn't a short read as I loved every minute of it.

Whitney and Jennings. I just loved these two. Jennings is oh so hot. Both have secrets from the past that they wanna keep in the past. This author certainly knows how to suck you in. I found this to be a very exciting read. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. The twists and turns had me totally gripped.
This was a great read that I loved.

Ok... I have one, and only one, major complaint about this book. No one... and I mean no one would be fooled into thinking 1 man was 2 different men just by slapping on a wig and contacts! It might work to fool someone in passing... but not when the same girl is in both "men's" lives on a daily basis! Just way too unbelievebale! It was frustrating!

Anyone But Him is a fun new adult novel, filled with romance, secrets, and at the end a whole lot of drama and action. This book hooked my from the cover. I mean, did you see it? It is gorgeous. The old cliche "Never judge a book by it's cover" is a valid cliche but sometimes you are just drawn to something stunning, like I was to this one. When I began reading, it was a bit hard to find my grove at the beginning. This story is written in dual POVS, both Whitley and Jennings. There is a large am ...more

I have been waiting (not-so-patiently) for Anyone But Him for about a year now. I can still remember getting a tiny little piece of it from the author when she first began writing it and literally begging for more. But, I somehow managed to calm myself down enough to decide I wanted to wait until she finished so I could have the whole thing in my hands.

And I am so glad I did.

Anyone But Him was an absolutely sensational novel about digging through a murky past and finding a diamond of a future. I

Original Blog Post: Blog Tour, eARC Review: Anyone But Him by Cassie Graham

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars

Anyone But Him is, on the surface, a fun, light novel about an ordinary woman and a famous man who fall in love. Yes, Cassie Graham has written an extremely common fantasy that people from about aged 10 have but with an edge. After all, when we say that so-and-so is the love of our lives and imagine them as our significant other, are we aware of all the baggage being rich and famous could brin

It is a very refreshing sight when you lay eyes on a novel that manages to come up with a genuine original plot featuring unique characters who actually go about things differently than you would expect. A true glass of cool water that you have been searching for while lost in the land of what has become predictable and dry novels. Cassie Graham you have raised the bar for New Adult Romance Novels with Anyone But Him!

So the plot!..........We are treated to the Love Story of Whitley and Jennings.

These characters are my new friends! Whitley speaks to my insecurities and shows us how important it is to find and love yourself before you can love anyone else! Cassie Graham created a story that simply makes me happy. Happy to read a story of finding happiness after insecurity, anxiety, tragedy, and all around HELL. This is more than a love story between a boy and a girl and that is my favorite thing about it! It's the story of Whitley learning to love HERSELF...and that ma

OMG! Talk about book hangover.
Whitley and Jennings will grab you heart strings and start playing puppet master with them. I loved how each chapter was either inside Whitley or Jennings mind. There was no wondering what the other felt.

The two plot twist, so to speak, that Cassie Graham threw in there were even better. Both Whitley and Jennings holding secrets from the other. Watching the story unfold you have no choice but to let the book play puppet master with your heart.

Everyone has secrets and Whitley and Jennings have no shortage between the two of them. I was wondering how the Author was going to pull off this story line without making Whitley seem ignorant. She did a fine job.

Jennings and Whitley got to know each other in an unconventional way. Their first meeting was crazy. Whitley was not a stranger to celebrities. Her best friend was one. The ups and downs of trying to make it work and all of the craziness that comes with dating a celebrity seems to tak

This was a great story that definitely had my emotions all whacky. I laughed, felt sad, giddy, frustrated and had my heart racing.

The characters are very well written. Whitley is sassy and I love her attitude. Jennings *sigh* I wanted to hate him but he’s just too sweet. He’s a very very stupid, stupid man who I wanted to smack a time or two but he’s also totally swoon worthy.

Cassie Graham did a great job grabbing my attention throughout. Even the secondary characters had me intrigued. I love

What a cute story!

I really liked Cassie's first book, Unable to Resist, and I love books about celebrities, so I was uber excited for this one. And yay! It was super cute!

Whitley and Holli were hilarious, Jennings was adorbs, and I even liked Oliver and Lark. I would've given it 5 stars but I didn't like the Oliver/Jennings thing. I would definitely recommend this book!

The story just dragged on, Whitley was kind of annoying, and how the hell can you people not know Jennings's secret? !?

I probably wouldn'tbe interested in any followup story from Lark's POV. There were times I almost gave up on this read, but the author did a good job of making me like Jennings, his vulnerability was endearing.
