Felice is a master at writing characters and stories that wrap you up, hold you tight and don't ever let go, even long after you've finished reading the book. Her couples are real. They deal with difficult, real life situations but they always manage to find the strength and beauty in each other and their love. Plain and simple, her books make you feel good.
Carter and Reed both felt unworthy of love. Each had overwhelming challenges preventing them from pursuing a relationship. When Carter proposes a no-strings attached arrangement, it seems like the perfect solution for both of them. You know what they say about the "best laid plans of mice and men" right? Well then. Welcome to The Arrangement.
There's no question that Carter and Reed are hot together. Right from their first hook up, the sparks were flying between them. And naughty? Wow! Let's just say Carter gives new meaning to the word!
I loved the hot and steamy scenes between them but what really got me was the slow development of feelings between them. The fighting against it. The feeling that neither of them deserved the happiness they had found in each other and the realization that they couldn't live without the other and the drive to fight for what they wanted.
This book was emotional, sexy and sweet. It brought me to tears a couple of times and I couldn't have picked a better ending. It was absolutely perfect in every way.
The story seemed to move along slowly at times, but when it did, the pace seemed to fit that part of their story. The secondary characters add depth and quality to the storyline – Reed’s father Walter, Carter’s younger special needs brother Jacks, Helen the neighbor and former special education teacher who helps care for Carter, and even Michelle, the nosy mom of one of Jacks’ friends.
In true Felice Stevens’ fashion, The Arrangement delivers endearing characters with whom you can – and want to – connect, a plot you quickly become invested in, and steamy passion and explosive emotion. It’s almost like being there.
As usual, we are in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and how Carter and Reed meet may seem outlandish to some but quite normal to New Yorkers. Gay man (Carter), looking desperately for his monthly hook-up, walks into a straight bar (sort of) where gay bartender (Reed) works. Carter decides Reed is his target, leans across the bar, kisses him, and before you know it we are off on an extremely sexual, but also deeply conflicted and ultimately shatteringly moving sort-of-relationship.
There are two evil and never seen protagonists here, both of whom happen to be damaged, selfish, mothers who have unwittingly set this plot and romance in motion. There are also two exceptionally loving and caring real adults here--Reed's father and Jackson's caregiver--who provide the bridges to reality that Carter and Reed have never had in their lives until they meet each other.
Once again, Ms. Stevens has handed us a different take on love and commitment that grabs you in paragraph one and does not let you off the hook (or, hook-up) until the catch is landed. Enjoy!
