By twenty-four, Carter Stevenson has stuttered and ticced his way to debilitating shyness. Although his friends accuse him of letting his Tourette's dictate his life, Carter moves from Los Angeles to a quiet California town. He'll keep his head down and avoid people. He doesn't anticipate his new neighbor, Ethan Hart, crashing into his solitude and forcing him to get out and live.
From the beginning, Ethan makes his love for Carter clear. But he fears Carter won't see past Ethan's damaged brain, even though it makes Ethan more attuned to his emotions than most people. For Carter, there's a bigger issue: he's been burned by so-called "perfect" matches, and he won't risk his heart again.
One way or another, Ethan's determined to show Carter they belong together. Then Ethan receives tragic news. Suddenly he must turn to Carter for strength and support. Will Carter come through when Ethan needs him most?

Many people I respect greatly and follow (somewhat) religiously, loved that book. And that's great. The topic is very interesting, the idea is unusual and really good. Just not for me. I read the blurb, wanted to start reading and just couldn't. There is a small group of people here that have very m...
After an absolutely delightful foreword, I stumbled into this story, head first. I can safely say that it has been a long, long time since I’ve fallen so fast and so hard for a character, but Carter is just so sweet it’s insane. Then you go on and add Ethan to the mix, and all I can do is shake my h...
3.5 starsI rounded up for feels. This book is full of them. I like Ethan and Carter together an awful lot. They're both complex and wonderful characters. My one reservation has to do with what Carter gets out of the relationship. I would have liked to see more about how he's supported by Ethan and a...
