Right Where You Are by L.E. Bross

Title: Right Where You Are
Series: Second Chances 
Author: L.E. Bross
Release Day: November 16, 2015

Avery Melrose is used to having it all. So when her boyfriend cheats on her, she reacts like any spoiled rich girl-she freaks out and vandalizes his new truck, Carrie Underwood style. Now she's stuck with 300 hours of community service doing road-side garbage duty.

Seth Hunter just got out of prison, and after a few hundred hours picking up litter on the side of the highway, he can finally put his mistakes behind him. If he can string together some kind of existence, maybe it'll be enough to get his sister away from their stepfather, the man who sent Seth to prison in the first place.

A romance between these two is doomed from the start. Girls like Avery want castles and white horses, and Seth is no prince charming.

But sometimes, being around Avery makes Seth think he could make something of himself. Maybe even be worthy of a girl like her. It's just too bad real life gets in the way first, tearing these two apart before they have any chance of getting to Happily Ever After.

I thought this book was a quick and fun read. I loved the banter between the two main characters, Seth and Avery. I always enjoy romances with great banter. Seth and Avery also had off the charts chemistry that lead to some very steamy moments! I was immediately hooked by those factors. However, I felt like the story sort of dragged at some points. I felt like the book was way too focused on the sex and sexual chemistry, which caused me to loose interest in the book at certain times. I wanted to see more of an emotional connection between Seth and Avery. I would enjoy maybe reading a sequel where they didn't constantly have sex. Don't get me wrong, the sex scenes were steamy and well written, I just wanted less of it.

I thought Avery and Seth were both interesting characters. I felt so bad for them and the situations they were put in. I was rooting for them to get their happy ending. I especially felt bad for Seth. I just wanted to give him a hug!

At times, the characters really annoyed me and the dialogue between the characters seemed a little forced. I also just didn't like how focused they were on sex. Other than that, I liked this book! I thought the author did a great job and making the plot flow.

Overall, this was a enjoyable read. It was very entertaining at times, and I blew through this book. Sure, there were things I wanted to change in this book, but I liked the book as a whole.

Avery Melrose just discovered that destroying the car of her cheating boyfriend only cost her more trouble. The judge is giving her community service for her crime. The same night she decides to go out with her best friend to have a little fun before she starts her sentence. She is not looking for a one night stand until she meets a guy she can't keep her eyes off. Yet, after a steamy encounter she leaves believing him to be a jerk. To her surprise, he is there the next morning and he's going to be doing the community service with her!

Seth Hunter is finally out of prison. His best friend takes him to a bar to enjoy his freedom. Seth knows his focus should be in staying out of trouble and keeping his sister safe. The last thing in his mind should be falling for a girl. Meeting Avery makes him want to derail all the plans. He knows they are a world apart, but he's willing to give their relationship a chance. 

I like this book a lot. Seth and Avery's backgrounds are completely opposite. Avery comes from a rich family. She's spoiled and entitled. On the other hand, she has worked hard for her success, losing some of her own self by letting her parents guide her life. She aims to please them. When she meets Seth, he frees her. She will fight for him and he would be the only thing she won't give up on. It doesn't matter who's against them. 

I felt so bad for Seth. He had no one in his corner except for his best friend. He was trying hard to do the right thing. I was impressed by how he was able to open up his heart to someone who could hurt him, as much as Avery could, having had a similar experience with another rich girl before.

"You fight for her, and I'll fight for you. Always."
