Featuring characters from Love and Relativity.
Carter Montgomery spent most of his life blending in, and he liked it that way. It was always better to be seen, not heard. And while a theatric streak and friendly demeanor might have fooled most people, he knew the truth—he was the shy one. The quiet kid most people forgot about. Some might have considered that a bad thing, but those people all wanted to be in the spotlight.
The only place Carter didn’t mind attention was on stage, with The Hellions. Once content in his comfort zone in Seattle, Washington, he only knew three things: confrontation was to be avoided, keeping the peace was priority, and the moment he lost Kate Parker to Professor Ryan Campbell, he had no clue what to do with his life. Playing gigs, working at Pike Place Market, and watching BBC after the love of his life sailed off into the sunset just wasn’t going to cut it anymore.
Desperate to escape his rut, he takes a cue from Kate and chooses a random place to relocate—a small island across the country, where no one knows his name and memories of unrequited love aren’t found at every turn. Just when he thinks he’s found the perfect place to unwind and sink back into the shadows, in bursts Whitney Sinclair, a saucy firecracker who loves life and refuses to settle for second best. Full of contagious energy, she dares him to be brave, convincing him that it might finally be time to tell the world what he wants.
Carter...my sweet, awkward and sexy boy...if I could make ten little Carter babies with him, I would. Carter has been my favorite since book 1. His quirky sense of humor and habits stole my heart and there was no turning back. He has come a long way from his shenanigans with Dean to making some major realizations in Declaration. He had to come to grips with losing Kate to Ryan and that was a tough pill to swallow, even across the country.
When he meets Whitney, he learns a whole new side to himself. I loved watching him bloom and come out of his shell. He deserved to find happiness, even if he had to fight for it. Nothing was going to be easy but it would be worth it. They both had broken hearts that needed mending and found that in each other once they let go of the past.
Beautiful story and I especially loved the closure with the Epilogue. It couldn't have been more perfect!!
