Carter was captivated by Ellyson Evans the moment he laid eyes on her, but she was the one girl who didn’t beg for his attention. He wanted her. Ellyson vowed to never fall in love, because love can destroy you, but then she met Carter Jennings. She wanted him. Unwilling to risk their comfortable friendship, neither confessed their desires. Losing touch after college, a chance meeting reconnects them. They want each other. But love in the city is never quite that easy.
OK I was in love with Carter and Ellyson. First their names were just perfect and then their stories. Being that they were friends for a long time and lost touch I was sort of sad. I wanted them to have some contact, but no nothing! Then the big buzzing bug named fate comes and bites both of them. Carter finally gets his professor position and ends up where they started. Ellyson now has her private practice as a psychologist. Both very respectable jobs that in my opinion was completely believable. I loved reading about them because they were not written over the top. What I mean is that Carter was no man slut and Ellyson was a nice girl. So the playing field was even, which was a special point for me.
Lucky for us Carter has two sisters, Harper a designer and Bayler who is a baker. I know they are going to have a starring role in this series. who are going to be in the series. As for them, there is such a richness to his family and family values that I know they will be around for a long time.
What I loved in this book was the friendship that Carter and Ellyson had. They never crossed the line even though there was an attraction. I wont spoil anything but I will say that the author creates a longing, but not one that is unrealistic. They saw other people, dated and had fun, it wasn’t like they were in exile pining away for one another.
So for me it was a score! I cant wait for more from this author I hope you all are pleasantly surprised!
A few Quotes I loved:
Paige said, walking down the hall. “But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t kinda excited about coming over and seeing you mad at him; watching him grovel a little bit … and then I walk in on you two making out.” I laughed and leaned against her arm. “Oh, I can’t wait until the love bug bites you someday.” “I will squish that damn bug under my heel before I let that happen to me,” she said definitively.Read more at location 2858
Let her fall in love as many times as she has to until she finds the one who will love her unconditionally. Give her the wedding of her dreams because she’s our little girl and she deserves to have whatever she wants. Encourage her to become a parent and spoil our grandbabies twice as much. But most importantly, remind her to live each day to the fullest so she’s ready when her time comes.’“Read more at location 2208
“No.” Fletcher shook his head and looked around at everyone before firing his glare back at Elly. “I can’t believe we’ve been sitting here for the last five years listening to you talk about him, and now that he’s back you and your Little Debbie don’t even try to unwrap a smile!”Read more at location 1481Steph Nuss was born and raised in rural Kansas, where she currently resides with her black Labrador son named Gunner.
