Wherever You Are
You know that old saying “opposites attract” — well, no one ever tells you what happens after the attraction part.
Do opposites stick together forever?
Or do they just self-combust?
And then there’s the third option: someone or something forces them apart.
Look, the third option isn’t happening to us. I will end the bastard who thinks he can keep me from her. I ...more
“Wherever you are, no matter if it’s right next to me or a thousand miles away,” I say, “I’m tied to you with a thread that can’t break. We’re connected by something stronger than time or place.”
After reading part one of Willow and Garrison’s story, I couldn’t wait for the conclusion. I was so thankful that the books released so close together and I didn’t have to wait long. I love this couple and this ‘world’ so much. This book made me so happy and gave me so many feels!
This book waseverything.I laughed, I cried, I smiled, I wanted to die a little. But ultimately, it left me feeling so hopeful.
I, Willow Hale, am a risk taker. A challenge seeker. I see that now. I feel it deep in my bones.
And I want someone with me, always, to face risks together.
I want Garrison. For as long as I can have him.
There will never be another couple so perfect for each other. Willow and Garrison shouldn't make sense, but they fit so well. ...more

Oh my goodness. This was such an amazing experience to anticipate what’s going to happen next even though I already know what’s gonna happen, only this time I get to see it from Willow and Garrison’s POV.
I loooooove all the BFF Daisy and Willow moments, and also the Calloway sisters and Willow moments! My heart expands tenfold after reading those scenes!!!
I love the moments with Garrison and Lo. I’m over the moon at how happy Garrison is around Moffy and I ...more
i loved this book so much, even more than the first instalment. i'm so happy garrison and willow got their story told, and this book included almost all the scenes i wanted to see, both past and present.
“I choose to believe we’re stronger than any force in this world. I feel it deeper than I ever have. No separation will keep us apart. Not really.”
I liked this so much better than the first because I felt like there was more new content in this one (since some scenes were straight up from the webseries years ago). There is a little bit of angst from the time Garrison and Willow spent apart as well as some tender moments between them. They are one of the cutest couples ever, I swear. I love how ...more
This book, this duet….Guys this was SO much more of an emotional rollercoaster than I ever could have imagined and I say that in the most tender, loving way possible. I knew what I knew about Willow and Garrison from reading what had been on Wattpad originally and from the few snippets we had seen throughout both previous series. From those two things we caught a glimpse into who these two were but it was NOTHING compared to actually getting inside ...more
I want to start by saying that this one was better than the first one when it comes to the content (I’m mainly referring to the Gillow scenes), but the structure was still a mess. I think that this duet should have consisted on the first book with moments from the past (and not only those coming from the web series, but new ones too) and the second should have focused on their present and part of their future.
I connected more with the characters in this book than the previous one, especially ...more
So good! Loved all the scenes and I love that this book was longer. Combined with the first book in the duet, this really is basically everything I've wanted for their story. A part of me wishes there were more scenes from the "present day", scenes from the gaps in the story where it time jumps, I guess more mundane, every day scenes because it's something I love seeing and something these author's used to do a lot in their books.
That being said, knowing all of the plot (except for Garrison’s brothers being abusive) wasn’t what ruined the books. It was very much an issue of balanced writing, pacing and emotion.
Krista and Becca chose to streamline the plot in two timelines, ...more
They are perfect. I so would have like to have gotten like a full-length story with multiple books on them. Especially after they got married. I just felt a bit like a lot of the past content was from the web-series, which is fair, but it's a bit meh to read when you've JUST literally finished the webseries.
It felt SO good to dive back into this world. The OG world. I think the Like Us series is fine, but there's just something absolutely magical about the characters in the Addicted world. ...more
I LOVE WILLOW AND GARRISON SO MUCH and im going to fucking miss them and the core six.
I do want to say that having no gillow wedding scene or the first time they said I love you to each other was an absolute crime and I am upset about it and will remain upset.
I love willow and reading about the core six again, but I hate how everything that makes the Addicted series so amazing is completely messed up in the Like us series. For example, Moffy and Garrison's relationship. So no, this feels more like a reminder of the good old days when everything still was some kind of perfect (couldn't help myself haha) and how good the kids' series could have been.
This book continues the back and forth timeline of Whatever It Takes - watching as Willow and Garrison continue to solidify their friendship while navigating the gradual slide into fame and being connected to the Hales, Meadows, and Cobalts in the past; as they navigate a long distance relationship, family and friend dynamics, and more fame.
Wherever You Are was filled with the perfect blend of love and angst. It was ...more
Oh my god, my heart.
This book was even more emotional than the first one. We really get to see the hell Garrison has gone through with his brothers and I could barely take it.
All those bromance moments with Loren and all that he did for him omg guys I'm tearing up writing this. They are two sides of the same coin and gosh I love how Loren was there for Garrison and truly helped him and made him feel part of his family. Gosh, I have so much love for these two man. Those moments ...more
Loved getting more of Garrison and Willow!
I did not read the web series so this was all new to me...except the flashbacks. I typically do not like past to present switching in books....it takes me out of the mood. This one seemed to work because I knew most of the flashbacks so I could enjoy them from another POV. Though I wished they stayed in chronological order...that would have been better IMO.
I loved the moments we get with Garrison with Lo and Connor and Willow with ...more
I want to point out that after this book, I can say this without a shadow of a doubt: Garrison Abbey is my favorite KBR male character! He is patient and respectful. The way he treats Willow, always making sure she is comfortable, never touching her without her consent, even after they get together. His growth as the story progresses, how he starts to ...more
