Synopsis:
I WILL RUIN HER.

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 only need to worry about one thing. . .

Epic, soul-crushing self-destruction.
Because I screw up everything I touch.
Even her.


I was both exited and scared to read this one after how the first book ended. Wherever You Are is the second book about Willow and Garreth. It continues where the first book ended and they’re doing the whole long distance relationship.

“Wherever you are, no matter if it’s right next to me or a thousand miles away, I’m tied to you with a tread that can’t break. We’re connect by some thing stronger than time or place.”

I felt so bad for Garreth. He has gone such a long way since he bullied our core six. He finally realized how toxic his family is and despite his insecurities he never did the Angel move aka leaving someone he loves for their “own good”. I loved seeing him finally accept that he deserves to have people besides Willow care for him and I especially loved seeing his relationships develop with Lo (who he sees as a superhero), Connor and Ryker. But what I absolutely loved, was how he was with Moffy.

Garreth and Willow are so different but at the same time they’re the same. Neither think they deserve the other and I just love that he’s the bad boy and she’s the good girl. I usually hate flashbacks but the ones in this series just give such an inside to their relationship. He always thought about her needs first and he was so patient with her. Krista and Becca Ritchie just write friends to lovers so well that even I can’t help but love them.

I don’t know which couple in this universe is my favorite anymore, Garreth and Willow or Lily and Loren.

“Connor, Ryke, and Lo—they protect me all the time. They care about me when they don’t have to. These are three brothers that I’d never trade in, never swap out, and even though we’re not blood related, I know they’re mine.”

All in all I couldn’t put the book down but there were so many scenes I already knew because of Some Kind of Perfect. I just love how this book was about found family. Willow and Garreth both lost their families (both families can burn in hell) but they gained new ones. Not just with Calloway sisters but also with each other. I just wish we had actually seen some scenes where their “old families” see how happy they are or even actual talk instead of just suddenly disappearing from their lives.
