BLOG TOUR: Anywhere With You by Kaylee Ryan
Title: Anywhere With You
Series: With You, #1
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance (17+)
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 so 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?
This was a really great love story. It was sweet and romantic. When Allison and Liam see each other for the first time, its like a head on collision. They are instantly attracted to each other but they both have reservations for different reasons. When they finally get together, its fast and they fall hard.
Liam is the hot senior football quarterback hoping for a spot in the NFL. Did I mention he was hot? With a killer body, dark hair, and gorgeous eyes he’s definitely on my book boyfriend list. He’s also protective, sweet, loving, keeps his word, and very loyal to friends and family. He totally dotes on Allison. He’s also possessive (even before they are officially a couple) but I won’t hold that against him.
Allison is a bit sheltered and naive. She chose to spend her time at home taking care of her Gran or studying. So by they time she reaches UNC, she’s never even kissed a boy. Yet she knows she wants a family. I thought she was smart in the beginning to put Liam off since he wasn’t ready for a relationship.
I really like Aiden and Hailey as well. They were great secondary characters that played an integral role in the relationship between Allison and Liam. I really hope they get their own book.
Overall, I thought it was a good story line and a lovely romance. I will definitely be reading future books in the series. It was an excellent story and I give it 5 out 5 books!

I wake up feeling like I am being crushed. I open my eyes and it all comes rushing back to me. Liam. I am lying flat on my back and he is sleeping soundly with his head on my chest, arms around my waist and his leg thrown over mine. I can’t prevent the smile that I know I was sporting. He held me in his arms all night. I glance out the window and it’s still dark outside, good. This gives me some time to watch him in the shadows. I move my hand to his head and begin running my fingers through his hair. Liam has taken me by storm, body, mind and heart. I was worried that he would want more from me before I am ready and even that he is “playing me” to get into my pants, but he has treated me with nothing but love and respect. Love? I highly doubt that it’s love but I can tell that he truly cares for me. The way he looks at me, touches me, holds me. He makes me feel wanted.
I can feel myself falling harder and faster by the minute. I’m scared as hell, but I’m going to go with it. I’m going to paint my colors on the canvas of life and see how the picture turns out. My only hope is that Liam and I can continue on this journey together.
I continue running my fingers through his hair, watching him sleep when a loud clap of thunder rumbles through. I jump not expecting it and Liam bolts up. “Allie what’s wrong?” I can’t contain the laugh that escapes me.
“Nothing, the thunder just scared me, I wasn’t expecting it,” I tell him as he pulls me into his arms.
“Did it wake you up baby?” he asks softly as he strokes his fingers across my back.
“No, I was awake,” I reply just as softly.
“What? Why were you awake? Are you okay?” he asks.
I giggle at how concerned he is for me. “Liam, I’m fine. I was…I was watching you sleep.” I reach up and run my hands through his hair. “I was doing this, and memorizing everything that I could about you.” I decide honestly is the best policy. Well almost, I refuse to tell him that I think I’m in love with him. Hell to the no! That would scare him off for sure.
“I thought that I was dreaming but you’re really here,” he speaks softly into my neck.
“Yes, I’m here. You can go back to sleep, I’m sorry that I woke you.” I curl tighter against his chest.
Liam tugs the covers back over us and kisses the top of my head. “Can we spend the day together?” he asks me groggily. I’m not completely sure that he’s not talking in his sleep. I hold in the chuckle that wants to escape me. I don’t want to wake him again if he is sleeping.
“I would want nothing more,” I reply honestly.
