I don’t know how any could not love this book!!

Carter grew up in Texas with a family that had way too much money and cared way too much about appearances. He had wonderful grandparents and parents that were more than happy to pawn their kids off on those grandparents. His parents were concerned about Carter’s happiness. They just wanted Carter to take over the family oil business. As an attractive guy with a wealthy family, Carter never lacked attention from women, but he never met one that made him want so much more.

Elly grew up with great parents. Her father was a professional basketball player turned ESPN commentator and her mom was a homemaker, but Elly’s life changed when she was 9 and she lost her mom to cancer. She’d never forget the way her mom looked and the way her dad broke down when she died. Elly’s determined to become a psychologist to help people and school is her focus.

On the first day of college, Carter saw Elly and everything changed. She was perfect in every way and he had to be close to her. The attraction he felt was like nothing he’d ever experienced. He sat next to her in class and flirted, but became tongue-tied talking to her. Elly was hypnotized by Carter the first day of school, but couldn’t imagine that he wanted her. They ended up becoming best friends, but they were each in love with the other and too afraid to ruin that friendship. When Carter’s dad got hurt and needed him to come home to run the family business, neither of them realized they would be separated for 9 years.

After 9 years of being stuck in Texas, Carter’s dad was back in charge and he had an offer for a job as a professor at NYU. He was still in love with Elly and was determined to find her once he got back in the city. Even after being away from Carter for 9 years, he was still the man of Elly’s dreams. She had a great set of friends and the job of her dreams, but not much of a dating life.

Everything changes when Carter and Elly run into each other again. The sexual tension is so high that it makes people uncomfortable and they aren’t backing down for the sake of friendship anymore. Things seem perfect, but will Carter’s family or Elly’s fears come between them?

This is one of those stories that warms you heart. Regardless of the amount of time apart, Carter and Elly never stopped loving each other. Once Carter had Elly back in his life, nothing was going to stop him from being with her forever.

Carter was professor smart and model sexy. He knows what he wants and goes after it. He was totally swoon-worthy! Elly is the down to earth sports-loving girl next door that any guy would love to have. You can’t help yourself from rooting for them after being apart for so long.

This was an excellent first book in the series, because you got to meet this entire group of friends that take care of one another like family. It’s like Sex in the City and Friends made a novel baby! Yes, please!! I can’t wait to see how all of the other members of this group find love in the city (you see what I did there? That’s the name of the series. ;-) I’m slick like that! HAHA).
