I was hooked.
I sat down on my couch to read around 8pm and wasn't able to put it down. So, why the 4 stars and not 5?
Honestly, every part up to the last 15% of the book had me engrossed: Carter's flashbacks to him and Arizona back in high school (his rescuing her after being dumped at the theatre?! Him getting the state of Arizona tattooed on his arm?! Swoon!).
However, the American French boyfriend coming to visit with her and then offering her a promise ring after only a month? And then the speech about him not having anyone else? Lame. I don't think another guy needed to have been introduced. Not to mention that after some time wouldn't Carter have bought himself a ticket and gone to see her in France?
So, yes. The ending soured things for me a little (don't worry there's an ever after) but an epilogue or something would have been nice after the little interaction between Ari and Carter towards the end of the book.
Friends to lovers is my thing, especially given the long history that Carter and Arizona share so this story was right up my alley!
Quick recap: In fourth grade Arizona and Carter know exactly what buttons to push and how to push them and finally, when it becomes apparent just how alike they are, they become best friends, a friendship that has now lasted all the way through college graduation. Not once have they considered a romantic relationship; that is until it happens. Then they have deal with the fallout of just how that complicates their relationship going forward.
Again, the feels. From the very first page I was in love with the best friends as well as their history. The book contains flashbacks of their relationship throughout the years and just how those moments helped to shape what would later become the basis for their love story. The book is told from a dual POV from both of their viewpoints, which I absolutely loved. The story has a slow build, but once they finally give into their desires, it becomes explosive. My only complaint? Where’s the epilogue? What kind of a happily ever after is that? Oh wait, let me download the next short story, an extended epilogue, Sincerely, Arizona. I’ll get right back to you…
“Some people come into your life for a reason, some a season, and some a lifetime.”
Carter and Arizona have been best friends since the fourth grade, and have remained besties all through college. Despite many people making suggestions that they are more, the two deny any romantic feelings for the other. And then one day, something changes. The two wake up and realize they find each other attractive and they embark on a secretive sexual affair. As time goes by they both recognize that the attraction goes deeper, it could be love. But can both of them admit it?
“I recently had sex with someone who might’ve ruined me for all others.”
Friends to lovers trope really isn't my thing, mostly because I am a firm believer that men and women CAN be friends without romance involved. BUT I do realize this is just a trope, and it's fiction so I let my reservations on the subject go and enjoyed the ride. This is a book that many of my friends loved and has been sitting on my kindle forever, so I am glad that I took a chance and read it (much later than most) and really liked this gem of a story.
The actual romance took a little bit longer to start than I expected but once it did, it was hot! Whitney G didn't write no vanilla romance, and it was that little bit extra in those scenes that really sets this book apart from other friends to lovers romances. Reading this makes me want to read lots more by Whitney G in the future! Friendship, love, sex and angst all made for a book you don't want to miss out on.
PS: I loved that all of the chapter titles were Taylor Swift songs, was a nice little touch.
“You belong to me, Ari, and you always will…
You’re more than ‘just’ my best friend, and I never want to be ‘just friends’ again.”
