Sincerely, Carter Book

This is undoubtedly one of the most well-read and loved works of novelist Whitney G. It is a very engaging story, visceral and entrancing to the highest of degrees. Sincerely, Carter book is known to be a part of a series of the same name, but the series only features the novel at hand, Sincerely, Carter, and a tie-in novel which serves as an epilogue. It was published in the year of 2015. You can learn more about it in our selection of the best friend romance books.

It doesn’t take long for the reader to feel the bond between himself or herself and the main characters of the story. Without further ado, let us meet Carter James and Arizona Turner. Arizona and Carter first met as children going to the same school.

It didn’t take long for them to bear vendettas against each other. Carter would tease and pull on Arizona’s pigtails when they were in just the fourth grade. Throughout their year of constant attacks, they exchanged a number of notes featuring insults, threats, and curses to one another.

Carter also wrote a lot of sorry notes. As they neared the end of their fourth-grade venture, Carter and Arizona set aside their differences and a connection was formed; the enemies of fore were now the best friends.

The Friendship Throughout the Years

In the mind of Carter, they’ve been friends since the fifth grade seeing as they spent the previous year at each other’s throats. Even years later, as the two of them became graduates, they still upheld the bond that was formed in the fourth grade.

The reader immediately feels that their time together was a genuine, true to heart joy for them. The human heart loves seeing such a relationship last for so long a time. As it turns out, the two of them are now about to turn a fresh chapter in their individual lives. Arizona to culinary school and Carter to law school. Between them and this great big turning point stands just one final summer. For what it’s worth, Carter has spent his youth dating many a girl, while Arizona has been waiting for the one.

Their time is fairly limited together. They have known each other for as long as they can remember and this closeness will end in just a few months. Carter takes his time persuading Arizona not to be so dead-set and serious about things in life. She can be very stiff and he wants her to have a good time with him these couple of months.

Carter has never had to make more than a slight effort to get with a certain person, so his energy was focused on his friends. Even after a long time together, they never stepped over the boundaries of friendship. All they’ve known their whole life has been changed and this indomitable platonic connection between them.

An Idea to Spend the Time

To combat the anxious and serious compulsions that Arizona has, Carter has a bright idea. Carter offered Arizona the chance to have him find her a casual fling, with no strings at all attached, so that she can see that life is a lot more interesting when you lighten up and get loose.

However, his plan isn’t successful so they both concede to just getting hammered tonight. That plan works perfectly until they get carried away and share a kiss. Drunken as they are, they don’t make a fuss of it and just go with the flow – it seems that Carter’s plan did work after all. The steam and the heat between them are nothing short of absolutely scorching. How exactly have they kept each other’s hands to themselves?

The two of them, hand in hand, walk in this new shade of life. They had never before thought of each other as romantic partners or even potential romantic partners, but here they are. The electricity between them is not of this Earth. Having been best friends for so long they know what the other likes and what they don’t. After all, what love is bigger than the one between two best friends?

Of course, their story is shadowed by the looming end of summer. The angst and dread of it all does make them do things they normally wouldn’t, but the story is truly absorbing and touching. Not many stories sing to the heart with a voice like this one. The power is certainly ineffable as our Sincerely, Carter book review would have you believe.

What We Recommend

Sincerely, Arizona is the epilogue tie-in novel to Sincerely, Carter. As you probably suppose, it is a read that you can’t miss out. On the other hand, Whiney’s Reasonable Doubt series is a treat, as well.
