Review: Who I Am With You by Amanda Lanclos

Note: This ARC was provided by Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Who I Am With You is a contemporary second chance romance written by Amanda Lanclos. It's a standalone, but there's a side story involving the male main character's brother and the female main character's best friend that seems interesting enough to spawn a spin-off or companion novel. This was a quick enough read set in Texas about Dallas Garrison and Kennedy Miller who ended their relationship when Kennedy chose to attend college out of state, forcing her to leave Dallas behind and breaking both their hearts while crushing all the dreams they had together. Ten years later, Kennedy has returned from Montana and the confrontation that Dallas was expecting doesn't turn out the way he had always envisioned. Kennedy has lost years of memories, including those involving their love story and what ultimately kept them apart. The feelings for each other still remain and both crave this second shot at getting it right, but when Kennedy regains her memory, will the reason they ended end them once again?

Overall, this was an okay read, with a promising premise that fumbled when it came to pacing. There were times that the storytelling felt rushed and then there were other times where it felt as if it was stuck in neutral, with Dallas and Kennedy doing nothing more than making up for a decade of not having sex with one another. It was difficult to really be as into Dallas and Kennedy as I wanted to be. To be honest, the situation between Austin Garrison, Dallas's brother, and Casey Jennings, Kennedy's best friend, piqued my interest more, which is why I'm kinda hoping they get their own book somewhere down the road. There were just all these sudden shifts with as far as the relationship between Dallas and Kennedy was concerned and I'm the type of reader that simply prefers transitions from one thing to another. I wasn't too much of a fan of Dallas's neighbor, Mrs. Stella, who was more of a busybody than anything else. Don't get me wrong. The book was okay but a tad underwhelming so I'm giving Who I Am With You three stars. ♥
