Wanted By You - Review

Wanted by You
By: Steph Nuss
Series: Love in the City #1
Release Date: February 27th 2014

Carter was captivated by Ellyson Evans the moment he laid eyes on her, but she was the one girl who didn't beg for his attention.

He wanted her.

Ellyson vowed to never fall in love, because love can destroy you, but then she met Carter Jennings.

She wanted him.

Unwilling to risk their comfortable friendship, neither confessed their desires.

Losing touch after college, a chance meeting reconnects them.

They want each other.

But love in the city is never quite that easy.
 My Review:

This book was phenomenal!!! Carter is my new book boyfriend!!! I think I am going to have to keep him around for a while! My heart smiled while reading this from the beginning all the way to the end! 

This is the story of Carter and Elly! They meet in school and form an immediate attraction towards each other but it never develops into anything more than just an extremely close friendship! They are best friends. They keep their feelings hidden from each other but you know there is definitely something between them!

"Her eyes made my pulse race, my breath hitch, and I couldn't for the life of me remember ever gazing into eyes as big and fierce as hers. They were like melted fudge poured over ice cream: delicious and warm."

Carter has to leave and head home to Texas though when he needs to help after his father is in an accident. He wants more than anything for her to go with him but he knows she is where she needs to be! They eventually lose touch and when he comes back to New York they have a chance encounter! The sparks fly from the moment they set eyes on each other again! 

"I really didn't think seeing him again would feel like this: like my body had been set on fire but I wasn't going to stop, drop and roll."

Elly and Carter were able to pick up where they left off. They had both wanted to be together and you could feel the chemistry between them. It was like a night on the fourth of July.... sparks were flying!!! They were steamy in the bedroom and outside! The things that Carter did for Elly though were amazing! He truly loved her and put her first. He stood by her through her fears and wanted to be her rock.... the thing that really got me were the letters at the end of the story... plus the envelopes from her friends!!! The sweetest thing!!! 

This story was just amazing and told from both the past and present. We get little flashbacks of things that happened which gave us that more insight on the bond they had! It is told from both Carter and Elly's point of view! Please don't miss out of this story and pick up a copy! It was a quick read but definitely one that will stay in your heart for a long time!
