Heartwarming and Sexy: Sincerely, Carter by Whitney G. (Review)

After Reasonable Doubt, Whitney G.’s books are a no brainer to me. She’s become one of my favorite romance authors and sitting in my WIP: Where How and Then What chair for what would become my most viewed WIP interview has (almost) nothing to do with it. There’s a freshness in her writing that can take you out of whichever mood and make you smile. Sincerely, Carter is this New York Times and USA Today bestseller author’s latest release, and of course I’ve read and reviewed instantly. Now I suffer from withdrawal. I came to love Carter and Ari so much! Read on for my 5-star review.

Excerpt

Dear Miss Carpenter,

I am sorry that I was bad in class yesterday. I did not mean to cause a dissrupshun, and I am sorry that I broke your best pens, but I am not sorry that I HATE Arizona Turner. She is ugly and she talks way too much. I don’t know why you never send her to the office like you send me. She deserves to be punish too, and I hope she dies tomorrow so I won’t have to see her or her ugly metal mouth anymore.

Sincerely, Carter

Dear Carter,

I am sorry that I made you act bad and break Miss Carpenter’s pens yesterday, but I am not sorry that I HATE you. You are ugly and you talk way too much. That’s why I always get you in trouble because you can’t shut up and you think you know everything BUT YOU DON’T! I really wish you will get hit by a bus one day soon because you suck. You suck A LOT.

Not Sincerely, Arizona

My Review

Carter and Arizona are known for two things: One, they’ve been attached to the hip since fifth grade (no, fourth, she’ll insist) and two, they are just friends. Seriously? Everyone wonders, especially Carter’s string of soon-to-be-dumped girlfriends who hate Ari. Well, he does tend to text and email her through a date, if he doesn’t cut it short to actually go find her. Arizona is a big part of Carter’s life: she’s funny, witty, gets him like no other, but he’s not attracted to her. Not at all. Until, one day, he is. And funnily enough, she is too.

Boy, does that complicate things. And when career choices make them have to choose between pursuing dreams or each other, hearts are shattered. When the “BFF” stamp has been branded onto them since childhood, who will man up to label the new feelings?

After Reasonable Doubt, I one-click Whitney Gracia Williams’s books. She’s a writer that stays true to emotions, spanning the gamut in a single story, without trying too hard to impress. It takes serious talent to be able to pull that off. Sincerely, Carter does just that. It’s fresh, witty, heartwarming and engaging till the end. I read it in almost a single sitting, and now I feel I’ve known Carter and Ari since they were kids. They’re amazingly sweet and real and sexy. Seeing how they experienced milestones in their lives through notes, texts and emails ever since they were hating each other in fourth grade will make you smile. Seeing how their circle of friends and lovers spins out of focus while they remain its solid core, and them still refusing to acknowledge what that means will make you want to whack them on the head. But there’s no way you won’t love them to bits.

This book was offered to me by the author in exchange for an honest review–a moment before I one-clicked it. I’m one sincerely happy reader!
