Just friends.We’re just friends.
No, really. She’s just my best friend…
Arizona Turner has been my best friend since fourth grade, even when we “hated” each other. We’ve been there for one another through first kisses, first “times,” and we’ve been each other’s constant when good relationships turned bad. (We even went to colleges that were minutes away from each other…)
Throughout the years, and despite what anyone says, we’ve never crossed the line.
Never thought about it.
Never wanted to.
Until one night changed everything.
At least, it should’ve …
We’re just friends.
I’m only saying this until I figure out if she’s still “just” my best friend…
I actually listened to the audiobook rather reading the book. Not that this affects the story, but I find it that it’s an important distinction. For me, it is usually harder to enjoy audiobooks than written ones. So, when I say I LOVED this book – it means even more because I was listening to the audiobook rather than reading it.
I COULD NOT STOP LISTENING TO THIS STORY. The book had me laughing out loud while I listened while driving and while sitting in pick-up line. People kept staring at me because of my “inexplicable outbursts.”
The heartache in this story may be the best I’ve ever read. It goes on for an unusually extended period of time. As a reader, one can feel the pain and desperation. I realize it sounds a bit wrong to be cheering for pain in a story, but that’s what good romance is all about: heartache followed by a happily ever after.
Many of the chapters go back in time when Carter and Arizona are young, (4th grade through beginning of college). I thought the dialog for the younger years was spot on.
The way the author wrapped up the ending was sensational. The only problem was that I was disappointed that the book was over. This is definitely going in my pile of to read again.
REVIEW Of AUDIO
I enjoyed the voices for both Carter and Arizona. The voice for Josh, Carter’s friend, was a little Trump-like. It was a bit distracting because it reminded me of late night talk show hosts poking fun at Trump.
