Blog Tour and Review: Anywhere with You by Britney King

Find on Goodreads

They say opposites attract. For Jack and Amelie, that statement is about as close to the truth as it gets.
She runs from anything that so much smells like love. And, well, as for Jack, he's always been a fan of the chase. Especially where she's concerned.
Which is exactly what happens when he proposes... to accompany her on a cross-country road trip.
A bet is made. True to form, Jack puts everything on the table—while Amelie keeps her cards tucked close to her heart.
The question remaining when it all shakes out—is whether it's possible they can both win?
Will a road trip across the country finally teach them to meet in the middle? Or simply drive them further apart?
This is the continuation of a love story that (like many) was never really over.


Before I get into anything in this review, I want to say that I absolutely loved this first book. It was on of my favorite reads at that time... Britney is a wonderful author and writes some really great books. Unfortunately, this one isn't on the great list for me. Good, but not great.

The story as a whole is a good story. More back and forth between these two characters that I came to love. However, the characters in this book didn't feel like the characters in the first book.

We are moving forward in the relationship that is Jack and Amelie. It isn't a pretty road. I actually felt like these characters and the story itself went backwards. They both are more immature and unsure of themselves than before. Their connection isn't felt in this book. I really didn't like either of them in this story. They didn't jive with me.

I had a harder time keeping myself in the book. There was too much back and forth in this book. By now, I would have expected a more profound journey. I guess what I am saying is I didn't get what I had hoped for in this book. I wanted to feel something, but I didn't.

Although this book wasn't a book for me, that doesn't mean it isn't a book for someone else. I know many that will absolutely adore this book. It is a good book. It just isn't at the top of my list. Just know that I am saddened that it isn't at the top of my list.

My rating: 3 stars
