Got boy problems? Call Laney Scott. She's good for advice, a shoulder, or a swift kick where you need it. When her roommate Bethany gets her heart broken, yet again, it's Laney to the rescue. But Laney's harboring a secret. She's nursing her own broken heart. She and her friends come up with a plan to break Aiden and set it into play. Laney wants Aiden to pay for what he's done to Bethany. She will make him fall in love with her, so can break his heart.
Laney's ex-boyfriend Lachlan Hems is back in Florida, still Australian and sexy as hell. His best mate Lucas is getting married, and he is in town for the show. He just didn’t realize Laney would be there … in another guy’s arms, or that seeing her again would have such an effect on him. After the incident in high-school, he vowed to never care for her again. But sometimes fate has different plans.
When Laney’s resolve crumbles, Lachlan is the only one that can put her back together again.
Where You Are is the start of a three-books new adult series from Amazon and Barnes and Noble bestselling author Alla Kar.
Where You Are is the first book in the New Adult, Together series. It starts out with a group of friends with various guy problems, and one girl that seems to have all the answers to how guys tick. I thought it was really interesting to see what the heck was going on with Laney. Sure, she does have no problem wrapping guys around her fingers, but she is also not interested in any of them. All we know is that it has to do something with a guy in her past, but the real heart of the story for me was figuring out just what happened between her and that guy. I was really pleased when we finally got to the bottom of that story. Where You Are turned out to be a satisfying new adult read. There were a ton of ups and downs throughout the book and a whole lot going on, but the overall story was really good!
Laney is so not interested in college guys- or any guys in general. But when her friend gets burned by a total womanizing play boy, Laney allows her friend into talking her into getting revenge. The concept was ok for me, but then Laney’s mysterious ex Lachlan comes back in the picture and Laney just keeps running away from. It made me all the more curious to see what their deal was. I went back and forth on the guys a little bit. Not much, but Laney really did seem to cause a transformation in playboy Aiden. He had real moments of sweetness.
The story was totally crazy. So much is going on at all times. It kind of reminded me of John Tucker Must Die and what was funny was that when the girls were plotting their revenge on Aiden, they actually watched the video. It made me chuckle. I never guessed Laney and Lachlan’s secret so that kept me on my toes as well. I am certainly interested in continuing the Together series. I didn’t love the revenge plot so much, but in the end everything worked out well and I was pleased with the book. My favorite part was how deeply we got to know Laney. I felt like this was a great growth opportunity for her and watching her be ok with her past was really wonderful. This was my first book by Alla Kar, but it will not be my last. I can’t wait to continue this series and to check out some of her other books. She writes a great romance.
