Rating: 3.75 stars


Brooke Willis had everything she ever wanted: a happy marriage, volunteer placement at the art gallery, and the promise of starting a family with the man of her dreams.

Saxon Reed had everything he ever thought he needed: a successful career, nice cars, expensive apartment, and more money than he knew what to do with.

After losing her husband Brooke insists on taking over his company to keep his dreams alive. Struggling in an industry she knows nothing about, Brooke turns to Saxon, her husband’s best friend and business partner, for guidance and support. Their mutual grief, and Saxon’s need to look after his best friend’s wife, creates a connection beyond just business.

Can Brooke take over the company and find a new life without saying goodbye to the past? Can Saxon protect and care for Brooke without scaring her away?

What happens when your heart doesn’t listen to your head? When lines are crossed and boundaries are pushed? 

“Life goes on, whether you choose to move forward and take a chance in the unknown or stay behind, locked in the past, thinking of what could've been. I don’t want to live in the past anymore. I’m so lonely; there’s nothing for me here.”

Wherever You Will Go is heart wrenching story about grief, letting go and opening your heart for the second time. Learning to love and give – finding happiness after thinking it’s not possible. This story is moving, romantic and heavy on emotions. It’s a journey full of obstacles and tears.

At the beginning of the book we meet Brooke, our main heroine, who is happily married to Nate. Their love is strong, beautiful and passionate. It’s everything every woman desires. The same day Brooke and Nate plan to start a family, her second half dies in car crash. That accident took not only Nate’s life but also Brooke’s will to live…

While she hurts in the most agonizing way, after losing her mate, Saxon, Nate’s best friend aches in the similar way. They both are lonely and broken.

However, Saxon has a secret – he always ‘liked’ Brooke. From the moment he laid his eyes on his buddy’s girl, Sax was in love. For ten years he’s done everything in his willpower to stop feeling this way, but he just couldn’t.

Now that Nate is dead and Saxon spends even more time with Brooke. This is his chance to make a move. But will Brooke learn to love and trust again?

What was between Nate and Brooke was sweet and heart-warming, the feelings between her and Sax out of this world hot and passionate and the despair that connected main heroes very strong. Wherever You Will Go is packed with feelings. Complete roller coaster of sorrow, loneliness and desire. I was mesmerized by it.

On the other hand, I had few issues with Smith’s novel; I didn’t really approve of Brooke’s choices and mostly her behaviour was pissing me off. Although, I understood she was hurting, she was very selfish and upset many other people. It was sad to see how she treated Saxon and his feelings.

I also felt some things between the main couple were too rushed; they didn’t have time to exactly ‘click together’. The idea of them together was better than the actual execution of it.

Still, I liked this story! Stephanie Smith hit me with edgy romance and tear jerking suspense. Her book was charged with emotions, which I can’t deny. Fans of heart pounding, emotional roller coasters with occasional ups and downs will devour Brooke and Saxon’s story.

Watch the Book Trailer!

I head to the door, still clutching at a piece of peppermint chocolate and trying to dissolve the large piece in my mouth. Swinging open the door I yell, “What the hell, bitch?”

Saxon’s eyes are wide and he has an amused grin on his face. “Well, good morning to you too.”

My mouth is hanging open, and I know all the blood has rushed from my face. I’m shocked and not only because Saxon is here, but because he stands before me in dark wash jeans with a tight black t-shirt. It has been years since I’ve seen him in anything but a suit or tuxedo. He looks so much younger dressed casually. Less stressed and almost more… carefree.

Shaking those thoughts, I meet his eyes. “I thought you were Rach. What do you want?” My words come out more harshly than I intended, and Saxon’s smile turns to a frown, his eyes losing their sparkle.

My stomach twists and there’s something about him frowning which turns my gut. I don’t like it. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it like that. I’m just surprised to see you. What’s up?” I ask in a much more friendly tone.

He looks up at me, nervousness shining in those bright green eyes. “I wanted to see if I could take you out today?” The confident, cocky Saxon is gone, and I would’ve never believed this insecure one existed underneath.

He wants to take me on a date? Hell no.

“Bugger, I’m actually just on my way out,” I say with fake disappointment.

Saxon raises his eyebrows at me, and the cocky bastard is back. “Really?” he says as he looks me up and down. I follow his eyes down to my outfit.

Sometimes even I can’t believe how stupid I am. I roll my eyes and cross my arms over my chest in defiance, as I also remember not only am I in my flannel pyjamas but I don’t have a bra on. He smiles a cocky smile while looking at my chest, clearly letting me know he caught that also.

Listen to the music that inspired the book!
