Books about famous people, especially actors, just aren't my thing. I don't like the whole paparazzi thing and am not impressed by wealth and fame. I prefer reading about ordinary people.

That being said, I liked Carter the novel AND Carter the man. Carter is a self-admitted man-whore. He's bisexual but rarely hooks up with guys, since he's worried his career will tank if he's outed as bi.

All that changes when he is forced to return to Twilight Falls and meets Elijah, a pastry chef newly return

Seductive, sweet, and downright salacious!

Carter is the sultry, heartwarming novel featuring the dedicated, talented, pastry chef Elijah and the hard-bodied, hunky, movie star Carter as they discover together a sense of purpose, passion, and fulfilment beyond their careers and the importance of family, friendship, and a place to call home.

The writing is provocative and light. The characters are devoted, supportive, and kind. And the plot unravels quickly into a tale full of sizzling chemistry, u

To me this book was about second chances, not with one another but about their lives in general...maybe next chapters is a better term to use.

We all experience new chapters in our lives whether it's a new job, finishing school, getting married, well you get the idea, and not all of them are easy sometimes we find road blocks or something trying to pull us back to where we use to be.

Carter's story was heartbreaking at times and I couldn't tell you who I loved more, Carter, Elijah, or Maisie.

Loved it......all of it. The MCs were perfectly likable, Maisie was beyond adorable, I loved her. Maisie & Carter's relationship.....perfect!! Maisie & Elijah speaking French, I loved.
Complaint: that the guys trip to Elijah's bakery to "check him out" was interrupted, I really wanted to see that. And all that talk about Elijah's cupcakes made me feel like I gained a few extra pounds by the end of the book, lol.

Carter is book 2 in the Twilight Falls series and it can be read as a standalone, although you'll probably want to read Alex (book 1) at some point and meet this yummy group of friends.

Carter is a big action movie star/playboy/closeted bi, who is suddenly thrown out of the loop when tragedy strikes and he's left as the sole guardian of his young niece, Maisie (who is totally adorbs). Carter jumps into his new role with both feet, trying to help Maisie with her grief at the death of he

Sweet, sexy love

Carter was a Hollywood A-Lister. Elijah was a world renown French Pastry Chef. They met and fell in love over a crying 4year old and a punch in the face. Aah! True love.
Bring in an old lover from France who thought he could sweep Elijah back off his feet and a vindictive director and you have your angst.
I liked this book because this small town had it all and the love and charm of that 4 year old and long time friends brought it all in to perspective.

I’m absolutely in love with this book. Carter and Elijah are the sweetest couple. You will fall in love with them right from the start. But their world isn’t easy and they will have to fight off not one but two ex’s. I can’t wait to read more in this series.

Very good

Carter and Elijah are sweet together. The intensity that I look for in a great book was missing for me but it still was enjoyable.
Carter is a m/m romance that will heat you up and have you begging for more. Carter is an action movie star who also happens to be a closet bi sexual. His world has flipped upside down and with the help of his friends and being back in his home town he’s trying to cope with all the changes.

Elijah has moved back home and is working towards the dream of his own bakery. His next door neighbor though has caught his attention.

Ex’s, cute little girls, the wild seven, and media do not make things eas

Carter is a book that tugged on my heart strings as I read it. You follow the journey as Carter, who is an action actor, discovers his true self and announces it to the world of Hollywood. He starts out as someone who appears to have everything; money, fame, frivolous sex, and free as a bird. And he has a big secret he has hidden since he was a teen. When he becomes the guardian for his niece after her parents were killed, he reprioritizes what’s most important. He changes his whole life to help ...more

The second in the Twilight Fall series, Carter can be read as its own standalone book, however to get the full effect, I do recommend you read the first in the series titled Alex. (Also totally awesome!)

Carter is a sweet, heartwarming story with a killer cast, Elijah is the talented party chief whipping up hia culinary delights, add in the ultra-heart throb movie star, Carter, then toss in little Maisie and you have a recipe of a sweet story. Carter is known for sleeping with just about any wom
There was a thing Carter said that I can't remember exactly 'cause apparently I'm a dummy and didn't save the quote but it was basically that working out does not increase the size of your dick, and I laughed out at first, then I thought, "damn, if working out could do that literally every guy would look like a bodybuilder."

I love Carter and Elijah. They're great. I somehow liked (kinda) Nico too (except what he did to Elijah) kinda fucked. Also, he sounded pretty desperate at the beginning wh

This is the second book in the Twilight Falls series. These are fairly short stories with a hot and heavy romance theme. This series focuses on a group of friends, known as the terrible seven. In the first book, we saw Alex find his 'one' through an arranged marriage. This time we have Carter, an international movies star and Elija, a pastry chef. Carter has a reputation for sleeping with just about every woman he comes across, but what the rest of the world doesn't know is that he is bi. When h ...more

This is book #2 in the Twilight Falls series. This story can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to understand the series better, I recommend reading this series in order.

Elijah hears sounds from his neighbors home that worry him. A child is crying and he does not know why. Does he do something? Stand by? This is a defining moment.

Carter has been hit with some of life's true setbacks. When he and Elijah both have surprises from their past thrown at them - can they come together

Carter is the second book in the Twilight Falls by the talented AM Salinger. I'm really enjoying this series so far and I'm getting very attached to these characters and it's leaving me wanting more and wanting to know who's next! Carter is a rich and famous movie star who finds his way back home after he gets custody of his niece. When he meets his sexy neighbor Elijah, they have an instant attraction, but there are too many obstacles in their way. At first. After spending time together, eating ...more
Někde v půlce knihy jsem zjistila, že pokud by někdo vtrhl do scény s hlavními postavami a nechal je explodovat, bylo by mi to úplně jedno. A nebylo to špatně vymyšlenou premisou, kdepak. Ale styl psaní by unudil i želvu. Scény byly stavěny tak, aby podávaly pouze jednu jedinou informaci (ne, že bych doufala v nějaké skryté vrstvy nebo přesahy), ale i ta jediná informace byla podaná naprosto rutinním, unaveným a šedivě nezajímavým způsobem. Magický "dětský objekt" byl dalším hřebíčkem do rakve. ...more

I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

Good story. Not insta-lovey. Maisie was a cute addition. I liked both men in this story and liked them even better together.
