This book was amazing!!! I wasn't expecting it but it touches deeply my heart...
Yeah, it was an ordinary story in a way, but somewhere in the development of the plot i felt my heart pounding loud in my chest for Seth and Avery...
I'm amazed by how touching was that book...

This was a story of a girl and a boy who fell in love...
This was a story of two worlds that collide...
This was a story of finding yourself and claiming the right to decide your own the cour
I LOVED this story! Seth just got out of prison after being locked away for a year. He was trying to protect his sister but was charged with assault and put in jail. When he gets out, he has to complete community service. Avery's dad is running for mayor and has a zero tolerance policy he is running on so when his own daughter gets caught trashing her cheating boyfriends truck, he wants her to be punished to show the voters he means what he says about zero tolerance.

It is so hard for me to resist a strong heroine. They are my weakness every bit as much as a believable yet lovable bad boy is and I'm happy to say that this book offers both, which is why from the very first chapter, I already liked Avery.

This truly isn't anything unheard of or that probably hasn't been done before with it's familiar tropes and cliches yet it was a fun read that I quickly finished in no time at all. I couldn't help but feel for both main characters and root for them along the

"One thing Carrie Underwood forgot to mention: after you take a Louisville slugger to his headlights, and after you slash all four tires of your cheating ex-boyfriend's truck, you get arrested and charged with willful destruction of property."

L.E. Bross delivers a stunning and sexy emotional heartfelt romance in her newest release, Right Where You Are. As an avid reader, I have read my fair share of books that dealt with the theme of

Short story with a slow beginning and a slow middle and a whirlwind ending. Didn't blow my mind away but it also didn't disturb me in any way.. Just another book in a bunch that I'll forget about.

Avery has to do 300 hours of community service, because she busted her ex-boyfriends of four years car for cheating on her.

Seth has just been released from prison. He's spent a year there for assaulting his stepfather who's a major son of a bitch - he hooked his little sister on drugs and pi

While I loved Seth and Avery and the premise of this book, for the most part I was bored. I wasn't feeling it. It was sooo slow. It dragged. I wanted to skip sections. Argh.

I wanted to love it so much, and I hate rating books low but I'm not going to lie just because I got the book for free.

I received an eArc from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

First off I think I should let you know – in case that you hadn’t figured out yet – this is a New Adult book, and it has a lot of sexual content (hemhem… very EXPLICIT sexual content). So, if you don’t like it, or are not comfortable, you should skip this book, because really people, it has a LOT (and I couldn’t be happier)! I read this book in one day, people…

Right Where You Are is L.E. Bross's first attempt at a New Adult romance and she has nailed it! First off, look at that cover. It's so simple, yet totally adorable. By the time I was 2% in, I was already laughing and soaking this book up like a sponge. The premise isn't anything we haven't seen before: rich girl falls for ex-con bad boy, and if that alone doesn't grab your attention, the substance and delivery will.

I think I found a new series that I am in love with! Avery is in her last year of college and catches her boyfriend cheating on her. After seeing it with her own eyes she goes Carrie underwood on his ass. She ends up with community series, paying for the damages and finding true love.

Seth went to prison trying to protect his sister now that he is out he has made it his mission to finally help her. His first day out him and Ryan head to a bar and he becomes quickly fixed on the lovely Avery. But

This book is So. Damn. Good! It's not your typical NA romance, it's so much more! A relationship between an overindulged rich girl and a fresh out of prison parolee should never work but Avery and Seth have that perfect balance and chemistry that can't be denied. This is one of those books that once you start it you have to read just a little bit more. For her first stab at a contemporary NA book, this author hit it out of the park! Can't wait for Ryan's story.

I definitely recommend this one.

Why is this the first novel I've come across by L.E. Bross? Where the hell has this author been my whole life? How could I not know about her?!? This just floors me. There are just so many unknown to me authors that are amazing and leave me cursing all of the lost time I've had not reading their books.

Here's the deal ... I gave this thing five stars because it's pretty badass. I could go on and on about how much I love the characters and how Bross writes an AMAZING flawed character or how the b

4.5 out of 5 stars

First of all let me tell you, this book has some mature content so if you’re too young or you don’t feel comfortable about that this is not for you. If you haven’t noticed I’ve been in a huge contemporary mood so when I saw this book on NetGalley and read the blurb I knew that I wanted to read it.

Seth is a romantic guy I mean damn, Avery has a good man, "he kissed me again, only this time it was teasing and gentle. His hand curled around my jaw and he stroked his thumb over my kiss-swollen lips. “The effing zombie apocalypse couldn’t keep me away.” Seth likes to plan activities he knows his woman would enjoy, “Saturday morning. It’s a date,” he said against my skin. “No clothes. No plans. You. Me. This bed and maybe the couch, or the table, or the . . .” He oomphed when I elbowed him. “I ...more

You can not help but falling in love with the story and the characters. The honesty, love, devotion and the strength the characters are have is awesome to read about.

The rich girl, the bad poor boy from the wrong side of the tracks is a great read however this book just took it further and made it 10 times better.

This book was beautifully written and makes you feel so many different emotions. From laughing to crying and all the

I really enjoyed reading Right Where You Are.

I found the storyline interesting and entertaining.
I loved watching both Avery and Seth connect and get to know each other. They had amazing chemistry and you had no doubt these two belonged together.

Overall this was a great read that will touch your heart, I highly recommend it.

Avery Melrose and Seth Hunter could not be more different from each other. Despite the fact that they're both serving community service time for crimes they committed, they come from polar opposite sides of the tracks, and it shows. Seth is trying to overcome his trailer park past, save his sister from a life he can't stand her living, and figure out how to patch together the mess his life has become. Avery is every inch the spoiled princess, living the life her parents have picked out for her a ...more

I thought this book was a quick and fun read. I loved the banter between the two main characters, Seth and Avery. I always enjoy romances with great banter. Seth and Avery also had off the charts chemistry that lead to some very steamy moments! I was immediately hooked by those factors. However, I felt like the story sort of dragged at some points. I felt like the book was way too focused on the sex and sexual chemistry, which caused me to loose interest in the book at certain times. I wanted to ...more

Here I thought, wow a spoiled rich girl and an angry, filled with negativity male lead – how soon will it be before I want to put myself in the story and just shake the crap out of both of them?


The character development was phenomenal. I loved the amount of communication these two had with one another. We get a feel of Avery more so than Seth just because the rich girl trashing her cheating boyfriend’s truck is the oldest

Recibí este ARC vía NetGalley, lo cual no afecta mi honesta opinión.
Fue una buena lectura. La sentí apresurada a veces; entiendo que se pueda sentir lujuria a primera vista, pero necesitaba que los personajes principales interactuaran más entre si antes de caer en la etapa de hare-cualquier-cosa-por-ti. Quería conocerlos más.
No es una lectura memorable, es buena para pasar el rato. A pesar, me gustaría saber que pasará con los otros personajes, así que puede que lea los otros de la serie.

Community Service is the end point of Avery Melrose's tantrum when she finds her longterm boyfriend humping another woman behind her back, only to meet Seth Hunter - the almost one-night stand in a bar - there as well, a very recent ex-con who'd just about ruined his life the past few years. After a very rocky start, Avery and Seth find themselves gelling in a way no one could have thought two people from opposite sides of the track would, but there're a number of apparently insurmountable obsta ...more

I thought this was going to be a cute contemporary to help me get through my train ride but no, it was waaaaaay better than that. So good, I devoured it in one sitting.

By far one of the best contemporaries I have read this year.

Right Where You Are was a bit of a typical star-crossed lovers story. Rich, good girl meets criminal bad boy. Though at first they mostly just aggravate each other, you know a bit of pride and prejudice thrown in there, but it doesn’t take long for all that tension to turn into sexual tension.

While they weren’t a lot of surprises it still was a decent read. It was easy to connect with both the main characters, and empathize with what was happening. Avery trying to become independent from her par

If you're looking for a typical New Adult read about a rich girl and a boy from the wrong side of the tracks then this is the book for you. Unfortunately, it was not the book for me. I found the story to be predictable and underwhelming and the ending rushed. In the beginning, I really thought I would like Right Where You Are, the back and forth and tension between the main characters was great, but once a relationship started it turned extremely cheesy an

Initially I started hating the book with Avery being as spoiled as she was. It had reached a very annoying level, and with all the accomplishments she had supposedly gotten, it gave the impression she's more worldly. But she acted so stupid and it boggled my mind. Eventually, I started liking her and she finally toned the ridiculous - because yes, it had reached a ridiculous level that made me want to throw the book from how annoying and unrealistic all the sides of her clashing were - I started ...more

I love a good story of a redeemed bad boy. Seth and Avery are from opposite worlds but somehow, they find themselves a great match. I enjoyed the character growth, especially with Avery and Grant and her father. Seth has some serious problems and I'm glad the author was able to find a reasonable resolution. The chemistry between Ave and Seth is scorching.
