Anywhere You Are: A Return to Briarwood Novel by [Barrett, Elisabeth]
As the daughter of a music legend, Grace Davingham knows all too well what it’s like to be burned by the media’s glare. Now all she wants is to be left to do her painting and conservation work in peace, with no intention of returning to the spotlight. But after she sprains her ankle hiking and a handsome real-estate mogul comes to her rescue, Grace once again finds herself in the public eye. 
Sexy, successful, and averse to any attachments, Marcus Colby thrives on rigid discipline in order to manage both his real-estate investment company and his personal life. Marc has no time for fun, and no patience for crazy. Which is why meeting Grace—and inheriting an enormous Great Dane who won’t listen to a word he says—has turned Marc’s carefully constructed world upside down. 
Only when Grace and Marc square off over a local controversy do they realize how different they really are. But if opposites attract, their love is destined to bind them together—forever.  AMAZON 3 STARS. 

I liked both of the main characters, as different as they each were.  Marc being so contained and buttoned up and Grace so free spirited.  The Great Dane was a nice addition to the story and added to some of the crazy to their lives.  Well mainly Marc's because Grace really handled the dog quite well.  She fell in love with the dog really quickly,  they bonded without much struggle.  The same can't be said of Marc and Grace though.  They were going to struggle over many different challenges although the attraction was definitely there.  The author did a good job of getting the emotions across in the story.  Not only with the main characters relationship but with all the other people in their lives too.  Grace's family and all the fame that went with them added to the story and was believable.  Grace had been used time and again by many people over the years because of that fame, and she was just looking for normal.  She had finally walked away from the reality show that her family was involved with, she wanted to keep her sanity. She was also talented and smart all on her own.  Don't think that just her family was dysfunctional.  No, Marc had his own kind of crazy family going on.  Just  a different kind of crazy. This story brought in different kinds of problems that the M.C.'s had to overcome, so from that emotional view I would have to say I liked it.  But for me, it was just an okay story, all in all. 

I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
