Review: Anywhere by J Meyers


Title: Anywhere
Author: J Meyers

Skye Whitcomb is running from her troubles, and where better to run than Europe? Fresh out of college, she makes quick plans with her best friend Paige and hops on a plane.

Of course, nothing ever goes as planned—at least not for her. First, Paige has to bail, and Skye’s left to travel alone. Then she meets sweet and sexy Asher Benedict in Paris, and sparks fly after a night together on the train to Rome. He’s all kinds of perfect for her, but the timing couldn’t be worse since she was running from the altar when she left—so the last thing she wants right now is a relationship.

But Skye’s about to discover that no matter how far you run, love can find you anywhere.

So, Anywhere is a new adult novel about a 22ish woman who is trying to discover who she really is. For her entire life, she has been trying to make everyone else happy, at the expense of her own happiness, and now really has no idea who she is.
She just graduated college, and decided to fulfill her dream of backpacking across Europe with her BFF. Only problem is, as soon as they get there they find out that her friend is pregnant, and has to go home.

So that leaves Skye with a choice- go home too and cancel her dreams, or stay and try to trek through the unknown territory alone.

Thankfully, she immediately meets the sweetness that is Asher and they decide to travel together... and of course fall in love. lol

Pros: Super sweet contemporary romance. I liked Asher a lot. I liked reading about the different countries they traveled to. And overall the book was nice and pretty swoon worthy.

Cons: my cons were really only in the beginning, because soon after reading I got so into the story I didn’t care if there was anything wrong with it. haha I totally enjoyed watching (and feeling) them fall for each other!

Cover reveal and Teaser: Strength


 Strength (The Descendant Trilogy #2.5)

We now know who The Descendant is... But what happens next? It will take years before she is able to do what is prophesied. Where does that leave everyone else? People have died on both sides. And as the years go on, things don’t change, or maybe they change too much. 

Follow Samantha, the one person we haven’t heard from yet, as she grows into her skin. She is now having dreams of a Rising Member attacking her. She fears for her life, but at the same time feels confined and too sheltered. While her parents pressure her to help her little sister learn the role she must fulfill, she wants only to be herself and to do more than babysit. But if she ventures too far out, will her mysterious stalker come out of the shadows to torture her for the knowledge she has? 

Read this novella for a look into the life of a young Order Member, the first to grow up in The Compound in decades, as she tries to fulfill the many roles she must play. 

Sisterly love, daughterly affection and rebellion, friendship, and relationships beyond that of only friendship dwell within these feisty, few pages.

And now... for a TEASER!

I rolled over, pushing him off me and to the side. I tried to wipe the blood from my face, but it was too slimy. It felt like it would be there permanently, forever tainting me. A tattoo of death. Proof that I was a killer. 

I walked backwards until my back hit a tree. I slid down it, the bark scratching me through my shirt, until my knees were once again tucked under my chin and I cried. 

I stared over at the lifeless body as the blood pooled around his head, staining the dirt and grass below. I stared at him and realized that his life was gone, his little hole, was gone forever. 

So I cried. And I didn’t stop.
