In a city where you can never trust anything to be as it appears, legal investigator Kristina Andersen finds the truth. So when she has a sexy encounter with enigmatic billionaire Landon Tatum while working undercover at a birthday party hosted in a seedy strip club, her first instinct is to dig deeper. 

The next morning he's missing, and the firm tells her she needs to either find him in the next forty-eight hours or lose her job. But as she begins her investigation, she quickly realizes that whoever is after Tatum has a surprise for her too: she's been drugged so that every man she sees looks like the man she's searching for.

The man who sets her heart racing, even after years of keeping that part of herself locked up.

Someone is warning her to back off. But even if her intuition says this is bigger than she can handle, she can't turn away. And as she falls deeper into a world of illusion and deceit, she realizes she’s fighting for more than just her job.

She’s fighting for her life.

My Review:
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Despite Science fiction not being my usual genre to read, especially futuristic romances, but I thought that I would give Everywhere It’s You a chance because its blurb intrigued me.

There was very little I disliked about this book. I did feel that it was a little difficult to get into only because it looked like it was going to be a little cliché and I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. However, I just kept on going and actually ended up really enjoying it. There is a fantastic blend of characters. I found Kristina, our main character, quite relatable which attests to the writing. Given the situations she was put in, the emotions she gave off seemed genuine and never forced or awkward. Out love interest is still a little bit of a mystery, and I would have liked to learn more about him, but given the constraints of the length of the novel, I can understand why we didn’t get to see more of him.

Again, given the length, the plot went at a fast, but understandable pace. It did feel a little rushed, and I really wish that the author would have extended the novel’s length just a little bit more just for the plot’s sake, but I still enjoyed it regardless.

Overall, the book was pretty good. I do wish it was a bit longer (maybe 50 pages or so) because I would have loved to see more development in both the plot and characters that a short novella length book just can’t satisfy. However, what was there was fast and easy to read and was very well written. I will definitely keep an eye out for book two! 4 stars for Everywhere It’s You!
