You so should read this book to find out. Carter is a great start to Harlow Series!! I am not surprised.... I have absolutely loved every book I have read by Brie. I promise you will to!!
One chapter in and I was already blurry-eyed. Shelby and Carter have been friends since they were six. When one boy asked if he could push a girl on the swings. Since then they've been inseparable. Shelby spent all of her time with Carter and his family. It was only natural that when they got older their relationship transitioned into something more. One night and a few sentences changed it all. That day is when Shelby left only to return many, many years later. Her life isn't what she thought it would be. She's a different person now because of it.
Carter regrets the day he pushed Shelby away. There isn't a day that's gone by that he hasn't thought of her. He's been thinking about her more lately, having seen girls that remind him of her. Only, he knows that she'd never come back.
There was a lot of redemption and forgiveness in this story. When Shelby left, she didn't just leave behind Carter, she left his family, all who had accepted her has one of theirs, as well as the family who took care of her when she was younger. It tells the struggles of leaving a rocky, abusive relationship and trying to trust people again. Shelby has to learn to be on her own and value herself again. I enjoyed seeing her and Carter on the journey to trusting each other again and building that friendship back that they had so long ago. Brie Paisley wrote this story well. It even had alternating point of views, which I enjoyed. I liked seeing how they both handled these situations and all that life had thrown at them.

So, this author expects the reader to imagine a very small town life, where the heroine returns after 7 years to live with her 'adopted parents' and where the hero, her childhood love and BFF, lives with his large tight-knit family. Here's where I have the problem; she returns and immediately runs into the hero's brothers who tell her they won't lie to the hero about knowing she's back, but they won't tell him outright either. She then proceeds to live there under his nose for 6 mos! Come onnnn! Really? Small town life and no one knows?!? implausible.
I DNF this book. After 70% of the story line read, and the H/h were just then meeting, I gave up. It's unfortunate too because it had the makings of a great story in the beginning, but it just failed to pan out. This is the first in a series as I imagine his zillion other brothers--all named with a "C"--will also get their stories told. (Hint: failed to keep my attention with the Cason, Caden, Callen, Carter, blah blah blah. Not cutesy to me, sorry:/)
Hopefully the author can take this criticism to heart and fix future work product as the content about the h traveling home was pretty good. It was after she arrived that felt flat pretty quickly for me.
Also, I feel this author tried to do too much with the plot. For example, she's got domestic violence, childhood abuse/neglect, small town life, foster family, (hints to cuz I DNF) Co-dependent parent issues, stalker GF, Military (nod to the hawt Vet on the cover;), etc. themes. Just too much in one book IMO.
