Review: Anywhere With You (With You #1)

Anywhere With You (With You #1) by Kaylee Ryan

Publisher: Kaylee Ryan, 2013
228 pages, Kindle edition
Source: Purchased through Amazon

Synopsis (from Amazon):
Allison Hagan has not lived the life of a normal teenager. Her parents died in a car crash when she was ten, and she has been living with her elderly grandmother who happens to be her only living relative ever since. Allison became best friends with the boy next door, Aiden. Aiden’s family has taken her in as part of their own, which is why when her gran insists that she live in the dorms at college, Allison chooses to attend the same school as Aiden.

Liam MacCoy is a college senior and quarterback of his college football team. Liam is rumored to be first round draft pick for the NFL following graduation, as is his best friend, Aiden. Liam has one focus and that’s football, that is until his little sister introduces him to her roommate Allison. Since he met her, he hasn't been able to think of anything else.

Liam is not a relationship kind of guy, and Allison wants it all. She wants the romance and the family that she grew up without. Will Liam overcome his fear of relationships as well as the tangle of friendships to give Allison everything she wants?

My Review:
Allison Hagen does not have the best life. Her parents both die and she is sent to live with her only living relative her Gran. Lucky for her, Aiden-or as Allison calls him ACE- lives next door and he becomes her best friend and brother. Allison does not want to go off to college, but her Gran insists and besides, her best friend goes to school and plays football there. It was time for her to go off and live the college experience. In walks Hailey, her fun loving free spirited best friend and Liam. Liam is Hailey's brother and to say that is he hot is not quite enough. He is good looking, the star quarterback of the UNC football team, and not looking for a relationship. His life is football and his dream is the NFL. Girls are just something to take the itch off and would get in the way of his dreams.
What we find out is that it really is a small world. Ace(Aiden) and Liam are best friends and roommates and don't forget that Hailey and Allison are roommates. What we also find out is that Liam is not that close minded when it comes to a relationship with Allison, and Allison is desperate to find someone to give her the love that she is missing from her parents.

I really liked this book. Ok- I loved it. I don't know if it is because I have been in a book funk and I have not found anything that I could connect with in awhile. First off, as most people know, I am a sucker for a book that has sports in it. If the main character is an athlete I will read it. Second, I am a sucker for a good coming of age book, where the character finds out who they are and what they are about.
You are going to love Allison and Liam and seeing where this goes. I will say that Liam in the perfect guy, so that might be the one negative, or positive based on what you are looking for. If there are any real life Liam's out there, please call me. He is over the top sweet and generous and downright perfect.
