Carter and Elly meet on their first day of college and they are immediately attracted to each other. The book begins with the story of their meeting and then flashes forward to nine years later. Despite being best friends all throughout college and being attracted to each other, neither one of them ever made a move. The only way Nuss can paper over this huge discrepancy is to skip their college years altogether. It’s just so bizarre that they never expressed their feelings, despite feeling sure the other one was the person of their dreams or that their friends, who were aware of their feelings, never let anything slip.
Carter leaves New York after college and the two don’t keep in touch, not even on Facebook (in fact, Carter doesn’t keep up with anyone from their circle of friends, not even infrequently over the internet). He’s so convinced that Elly is the one for them that he gets an Elly-themed tattoo (creeper!), but he doesn’t even friend her? He becomes the CEO of an oil company and, in his spare time, gets a Ph.D in English (!!!!!). When a job opens up at NYC, someone just happens to call him to offer him the job (this delightfully rosy take on the job prospects of a recent humanities Ph.D with no in-person teaching experience was fanciful, to say the least).
So, now Carter’s back in New York, just in time to reconnect with Elly (whose career also has a suspiciously elevated arc, as she has her own psychology clinic at a time in her life when she likely would have just completed her studies).Read more ›
And for the record: "affect" is the noun. "Effect" is the verb. "Reins" are what people take when they take control. "Reigns" are monarchical.
Friends to lovers is one of my favorite storylines. I love a good second chance romance!
Wanted by You is a very sweet, contemporary romance written in dual point of views. There’s very little angst. If you’re looking for a sweet love story, this is for you.
We first meet Carter and Ellyson when they are in college (I loved their first meeting), and then again when a chance encounter brings them back together years later. The sparks are definitely still there, and they feel them immediately.
The story goes back and forth, along with their POVs. We get glimpses into their past, which really helped to get to know them better, and understand how it helped shaped the people they are today. They just aren’t the same as they were in college. Life and experience has changed them greatly, and it was fun going on the journey with them as they entered each other’s lives again after such a long absence. Carter was very swoon-worthy, and Elly was such a relatable, witty heroine. I also really enjoyed the secondary characters as well.
I really appreciated that this story wasn’t full of unnecessary angst. There was enough happening just in their everyday lives to keep things interesting enough, without the addition of crazy drama. I do have to mention that I thought the story dragged a little bit in some parts. I also felt like while all the right components to make an amazing story were present, it just seemed to lack any major spark. It didn’t completely grab me and suck me in. With that being said, I still enjoyed it, and look forward to the next books in the series.

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! 40976-5halfstarblogbook
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.Read more ›
