All Over the Place

All Over the Place
Livi Callaway has fled back to London after a reality TV disaster in New Zealand. Safely anonymous in the big city, she's determined to stay under the radar from now on. But her attempts to build a new life are complicated by unexpected visitors from her old one, and new dangers and temptations lie in wait.
Late one night, she meets a mysteriously sexy American on the Underground – and the events that follow take her from Pooh Bear to the golden lights of Paris, via a trail of rock stars dead and alive. A family in disarray, a determined Swede, a crazed Australian and a childhood friend (who might yet be more than that) have her all over the place as she tries to discover the American’s secret – while keeping her own.
With help – and occasional hindrance – from her friends, what she eventually finds is something unexpected . . . sometimes, running away can lead you to exactly what you didn’t know you needed.


****This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest review****
Livi Callaway has suffered the humiliation of rejection on T.V in New Zealand. Running away to London, she leaves everything behind to start a new life, including her life long best friend Cam. But you can't run away from your life forever as Livi finds out when her family and past arrive in London.
This is a book of looking for love, fate, destiny and finding you have exactly what you need right in front of you in the first place.
There is a array of crazy, outlandish characters in this book that lead to many weird and wacky situations. Some that were just a little too weird for me. I found it very hard to get into, and the bits that I was longing for , the emails back and forward between Cam and Livi, were few and far between. Maybe this is just my romance junky self, but I was expecting a bit more of the romance in this book. What I got was a wild ride through the many wacky adventures of Livi and her friends and family.
It started to pick up toward the end of the book, but even then, I didn't feel the spark I wanted to between the two characters.
I am sorry to say that this book and I just didn't connect.

In a world built on pretenses, Everleigh Wright finds out just how carefully planned and plotted her Upper East Side life has been. Trapped in an engagement that was arranged for financial gain, she realizes things aren’t how she once thought. William Ryder leads a life rich in family support and has endless determination. Over college courses and coffee, he becomes enamored with a classic beauty with a lot of secrets. Intrigued by her quiet propriety and quirk for ink, William falls for her, and she falls for him and his unfaltering optimism. She was trapped in his world, wanting and hoping to stay there, to live inside their bubble forever. Breaking free from the confines of her privileged life will cost her everything, and the star-crossed couple will discover if they are destined to be together or fated to be apart. “Right here, right now is all that matters.”

She kissed him not caring about how she looked or propriety. She did what she felt and she felt like kissing him twice, so she did.
After lunch, they did a little sightseeing, stopped for frozen custard then headed for the train station. As the train barreled back to Manhattan, Evie turned to William. She felt shy, but wanted a photo of him. “May I take a picture of you?” She knew once again she was crossing a line, but she felt selfish and wanted something just for her.
He chuckled at her formality. “Yes, if you want.”
She took a picture of him looking at her the way she most liked to see him, in like of her. His darkened eyes said more and everything that they both knew it was too early to say and she hoped to hold onto that look forever with the photo.
When the photo loaded onto the screen, she stared at it. She was soft spoken, but he heard her. “You look sexy like this.”
The right side of his mouth lifted into a smile, a bit confident, a tad cocky. He pulled his phone out and flipped through the options. William stopped and smiled at his display. “I think you look really sexy like this.” He turned the phone around for her to see and her mouth dropped open.
When did you take that?” She tried to act mad, but she thought the picture was funny.
I like the way you’re about to lick the ice cream, tongue out all greedy-like.” He laughed again when her fist hit his arm. “Okay, okay. I shouldn’t have taken it without you knowing, but I really do think you’re pretty damn sexy eating ice cream. That right there is what fantasies are made of,” he said, pointing at the picture.
Ewww! Stop it right now. No doing anything dirty while looking at that picture,” she demanded, trying to grab the phone.
He held it out of her reach and continued the joke. “I don’t need this picture. It’s burned into my brain.” He felt her playfully hit his arm again. Grabbing her hand, he eyed her. “No worries. I only have chaste thoughts about you.” He tried to sound convincing by saying that with a straight face.
But her expression changed. “Well, that’s disappointing.”
Putting his arm around her, he squeezed her into his side and laughed. His grin got even bigger when she relaxed into him for the remainder of the ride back to New York.
Luck was something Evie didn’t feel was on her side. She was focusing on more proven methods of destiny, like action.
