Whitney G., has released another great read, and unlike her other books, this
one takes place in a college setting.
Best friends since fourth grade (or fifth grade depending on who you
ask), Arizona and Carter have always had an usual bond. Thicker than thieves.
Where one is, the other one is usually somewhere near. Then one night changed
adorable together. I loved their friendship. Even before the night that changed
everything, I was rooting for them to wake up and see each other as more. I
loved the flashbacks of how they met. How they were always there for each
other. I also loved how they would argue over when they became best friends.
Was it fourth or fifth grade? Plus, their
notes to each other throughout their life was so sweet and endearing. You could tell how much they truly cared for
each other through them.
discovering what they really were was quite enjoyable. I liked both Carter and
Arizona, and for once (insert a gasp), neither character annoyed me. Carter was a cocky, dominant, heartthrob who
couldn’t keep a girlfriend, and Arizona was a hopeless romantic looking for the
perfect man with the help of her “Long-Term Compatibility” spreadsheet.
no real complaints. I always enjoy the writing style of Whitney G., and this
book was no different. The only thing I didn’t really understand was the track
listings at the start of each new chapter. I skimmed over them so I am unsure
if they played any type of role in the telling of the story, but I’m sure they
did. Random I know, but I loved Carter’s wingman/roommate, Josh, found Nicole
to be such a hilariously horrible friend to Arizona, and wondered if Gayle’s was
a real restaurant because I would love to try those waffles.
read this book. Especially if you love a story where two best friends cross the
line and wonder if their friendship will last.
for my honest review.
