Overview

Where I Am by Michelle Dare

Where I Am is a standalone new adult romance.

Astoria

He was the man of my dreams, or so I thought. I wasn't sure how I'd react when I saw him again. I planned on avoiding him, but our small hometown made that impossible. The years apart melted away when I saw him. Time hadn't changed my feelings, after all. Jealousy flared anew. My heart, which I thought had healed, was back to being in a million pieces.

Now I'm right where I don't want to be—in front of him with tears in my eyes.

Parker

Everything isn't always as it seems. One moment could cause a ripple effect with unexpected consequences that last for years. Not a day had gone by that I didn't think of her. When our paths crossed again, I knew I had to tell her the truth. Arguing was inevitable, but I'd rather fight for her than face another day without her. My heart always belonged to her.

Where I am is standing in front of her—asking for another chance.

Poor Parker. I felt bad for him that Astoria wouldn’t let him explain. I understand the initial response but at least give the guy a chance to explain things but maybe she needed the 4 years to grow up. I do feel bad for Finn. He’s seems to be an upstanding guy but not too lucky with love. He needs his own book.

The story was well written, the plot flowed effortlessly throughout the entire book and the characters were well developed! I was so engaged with this story that it felt like Parker & Astoria jumped from each page and pulled me right into their story as it unfolded!

Riveting, enthralling, and absolutely amazing! This book is superbly written with an interesting, captivating storyline. A second chance romance that is action-packed, funny, witty, and full of intrigue and suspense. It is an emotional roller-coaster with some shocking, jaw-dropping scenes. An on the edge of the seat read; with loveable characters that are strong, complex, and well-developed. The chemistry between them burns hot, intense, and potent. A lot happened in this book … quite the tear-jerker with lots of twists and turns, ups and downs, and nonstop heart-stopping drama. Highly recommended.

From the moment you start reading this book you can feel how deeply your life will change while reading. This book touches so many heart felt feelings on issues that we all share or knows someone who does. You don’t know if you will be getting the HEA your promised or even how this will happen with all the back and forth going on. But in the end yes through tragic circumstances and the coming together between families and friends, Parker and Astoriast story is told. You will laugh you will tear up and cry at points but it all hits home for some of us and this is a greatly written book. Please enjoy your copy as I have.

This was a deliciously spicy romance that has some awesome twists involved and of course an HEA. But that isn't all it is. In this emotional tale of miscommunication, broken hearts, abuse, love, family, friends and healing this author brings it all together with ease. The kindness and acceptance of a stranger with the offer of friendship shows the deep emotions shared in this story. I love this author's style and the characters she creates.

I have long been a fan of Michelle Dare after I discovered her about a couple of years ago, and Where I Am is exactly why I love her so much! For those of us who have read Where I End, we were introduced to Parker who was Cy’s best friend. I always knew Parker had a story to tell, but I had no idea how important it was. He has a reputation of loving women, and he does have a revolving door of them, but he never makes them promises. His heart was broken years ago, and he never got over it. When his first and only love, Astoria, comes back to town, he knows this is his chance to tell her the truth and win his Tora back. If only he can get her to talk to him. But, Parker is stubborn and doesn’t back down from a challenge, and he isn’t about to lose her all over again. Astoria never forgot Parker. She tried to find the same kind of feelings with other men while she was in college, but they never came close to Parker. Even though she hates him, she still loves him. When she sees him again, all those complicated feelings come roaring back. Now, it seems like he wants another chance, but can she trust him? Could he have been telling the truth all those years ago, and she never gave him the chance to explain? If you think this is your typical second chance romance, you would be so wrong. There are so many complications that factor into their relationship. Parker is an amazing man! He is definitely someone I would want in my corner. He is loyal, intelligent, and loving. Astoria is just as amazing herself. She has all the same qualities that Parker does. They complete each other. Not only were the characters complex and well-developed, the story itself was very well-written. I loved the tone of voice it was told in, both from Parker and Tora’s POV. The manner in which they told their story was intimate. I felt like I was a character in the story, a dear friend whom they told all their secrets to. That really made me connect with them on a deeper level. I was so thankful to catch up with Cy and Eve and to see how well they were doing. They, themselves, had so much to overcome to find their own HEA. Blair opened up more in this book, and the relationship she had with Parker and later Tora, was very special. Blair was one very brave woman. I hope at some point she will get her own book. If someone deserves a happy ending, it’s her. As with most of Dare’s books, it’s not just a romance you are getting. It is something much deeper and much more emotional. This book is no different. It is full of emotion, courage, and hope. Dare is a master at making a story of darkness into a story of light! Hoping Finn, like Blair, will get his own happy ending too!

I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review..... Another gripping and compelling book by Ms. Dare. It has it all romance, tragedy, and suspense. It's not even easy to decide who you should truly be rooting for at first. This is a "standalone" sequel in the since that you don't have to have read the first book to understand this book however the characters overlap so you might want to start with "Where I End". Astoria aka Tori, thought she found the love of her life in Parker until one fateful day. She saw him do something that seemed unforgivable. Brokenhearted both people tried to go on with their lives but when Tori comes back to town after college feelings bubble back up to the surface. It is a strong book and about strong women who take care of themselves and are not afraid to say No when you should. It's a great book!!

Astoria Livingston is ready for the next stage in her life though how she's going to get past the next hurdle, heart in tact, is beyond her. She's never gotten over him and she's also not forgiven him either. Parker Maxfield knows he screwed up the best thing in his life the night he found himself between a rock and a hard place. The same night he let her leave without an explanation. All these years he's been unable to forget her and he's been unable to move on. My heart broke for these two people in the beginning and I'll admit I turned the pages quickly to find out if they would be together. I had faith in the author and her abilities to be able to mend them. I was unprepared for actions of the antihero, though I was happy with the conclusion of the story. The storyline held my attention from cover to cover. I have long been a fan of this author and her works and am anxious to see what is next. This book is a standalone though there are appearances from characters introduced in Where I End--I highly recommend that one, too!

Wow just wow! I have had this book on my want to read list for a while and I am so happy to finally read it. Tora walks in on the love of her life in a very compromising position with his brothers girlfriend and she flees not wanting to hear any excuses. Four years have gone by and Tora is back home from college dreading seeing Parker the man who broke her heart. Parker has never gotten over Tora by going through a range of emotions finally just being a manwhore but one look at her at a stop light make him vow to himself he is going to get her to hear his explanation no matter what. When a confrontation in a parking lot gets her to listen to him for five minutes it turns her entire world upside down and things will never be calm again. I love how this story grasped at your heartstrings and didn’t let go till the very end.
