Genre: New Adult
Rate: Enjoyed it (4 stars)


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 definitely an enjoyable New Adult book where Second Chances are possible. However, Alla Kar goes a little further and makes her characters suffer a common pain and make them learn to heal with time.

Laney's one of those confident girls who knows what she's in college for: to study. Since she's not looking for any type of relationship, she dissects college boys and what they want from girls easily. That's one of the main reasons she ends up giving advice to other girls in her dorm and how she ends up dating the hottest (or so they say) and playboy guy at her school for a bet. The bet? Make him suffer.
Laney's not one of those girls who goes around hating guys. She simply understands them week enough to know how to treat a playboy. However, the suffering of one of her friends (and also ugly crying) leads her in this messed up situation.

To make matters worse, the past has come knowing on Laney's door. Her ex-boyfriend, the boy who she has been love since forever and the one that she got away from, is back in the city and one simply look to Laney and he wants her back. They have never forgotten each other, so it's simply up to one of them to stand up and fight for their possible second chance. However, there are some mistakes and pain in the past that might threat their reunion. Not to mention a bet and a "fake" playboy boyfriend.

I have to admit that the very moment that Laney and Lachlan found each other again, I felt kind of left out. I didn't know their story and they had such a strong pull, sexual tension and chemistry that I felt jealous and desperate. I wanted to know every single juicy detail! What this couple achieved, was to captivate me with their intensity and their emotions. 

I liked how the author used the bet to twist it and "cause problems" into a possible reunion between the two main characters who share a deep and profound past. Moreover, the author does not forget that the bet is still on and keeps it alive, until the very end of the book when the relationship between Lachlan and Laney is about to burst in flames. 

The only warning I give you? Put the air conditioning on while reading this book. It gets hotter and hotter and beyond intense by the end!

For fans of the film "John Tucker Must Die", this is your book version with  much more story behind  it and definitely a much more intense love story. I can't wait to read more of the Together Series.
