Wherever You Are By Elle Wright-5 Stars
Wherever You Are is the second book of The Jacksons of Ann Arbor series. It features Dr. El Jackson and Avery Montgomery. El, who is mentioned in book one, is Dr. Drake Jackson’s “Uncle Brother”. El and Avery’s brief encounter in the beginning lets you know that there are unresolved feelings between the two.
Elle’s writing style allows you to connect with the characters. I’ve read most of Elle’s books and the Male leads are always someone you will fall for. El is no different. Several parts of the story had me smiling as I read about El’s caring and sweet spirit. Don’t get it twisted, a little bad boy comes out at just the right time. There are also times where El forces Avery to be strong. The theme of the book is second chance love, and this is becoming a favorite theme of mine. We learn a lot about their past relationship and hope they can come back together again.
The secondary characters are strong. Avery’s best friend Jess is more like a Sister. I enjoyed reading a little more about Drake and El’s relationship and of course getting an update on Drake and Love. El is Drakes uncle but they are very close in age and are more like Brothers, thus the “Uncle Brother” title. It’s refreshing to read about Men who have a real bond, but also don’t cut each other any slack. I truly enjoyed this book. It can be read as a stand-alone, however I recommend starting with book one because I really enjoyed that one as well.
