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.
I just have to thank Krista & Becca Ritchie for not making us wait forever for Wherever You Are. One week was long enough to stew over that end in Whatever It Takes. It was nice to be able to quickly jump back in right where the story left off.
I loved how Willow and Garrison’s story came full circle in Wherever You Are. Their love story was sweet. It was satisfying to see them make it through a long distance relationship, the media focus on them, and really everything life through at them. Their story was both a little heartbreaking at times, while also being very uplifting.
My only little issue with this story was all the back and forth between present and past. It didn’t bother me in the first book, but I felt the switches more in this one. Part of that was probably because I was wanting that happy ending. The other was that with every past section, the time in the future jumped so I wasn’t taken back to the last present moment. It was a little jarring at time. It didn’t ruin my reading experience or anything. It was just noticeable this time around.
Overall, this Wherever You Are was a strong conclusion to the Bad Reputation Duet. I’m so happy to have finally gotten Willow and Garrison’s story!
