Overview

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?

Absolutely freakin' fantastic. I was impressed by so much of this book. I liked that family and friends treated Ethan and Carter as able adults. Sure there were concessions made but they were seen as capable adults; equals. Carter loved Ethan as he was, not despite his special needs or because of them. That Ethan saw Carters tics as music, a beautiful part of Carter, was wonderful. They each filled in the gaps of the other and made one another complete. I loved the supporting characters. Ethan's parents are amazing and Ethan's brother was, just wow. Lots of reality there. Highly recommended Adult read

love love LOVED this! Usually, when I write reviews for audio books, I write about the book first and the narration after. I cannot, simply CANNOT do that here. Why? I can't split them, because the narration is what makes this book for me. Oh don't get me wrong, the book itself is awesome, but the narration K.C.Kelly is what takes it to another level. I truly believe I would not have enjoyed this book as much had I read it. Here's why. Ethan is brain damaged from an incident (not saying what because that will give spoilers) and READING the book, when Ethan is talking, it might have come across as *finding the right word is HARD!* simplistic. That the way Ethan talks might not come across right. But the narration by Kelly? Gives it just what it needs. Ethan and Carter are very different, their challenges in life so very far from each other, but from that very first time Carter sees Ethan, listening to the music in the clouds, he knows that Ethan is special. Ethan makes his love for Carter known from the beginning. He can hear Carter's music too, in his ticks and clicks and jerks. Oh, I loved the way Ethan's brain worked! I loved Ethan's family and friends and how they all looked out for him. Ethan has some very laugh out loud moments, and some very heartbreaking ones. I understand why his family did what they did, but I can see why Ethan felt so hurt by it. The research into both Carter and Ethan's conditions shows, and it makes for powerful listening. Kelly's narration was, Ethan's voice aside, excellent. I loved his other voices, and his reading voice was clear and deep, and I had no trouble following multi person conversations. This is the first I have listened to by Kelly and my wish list on Audible is now several books longer. Its also the first of Loveless that I have read/listened to, again, wish list, longer! I do hope Loveless will write more about Ethan and Carter, I'd love to catch up with them along their way! 5 stars for the book 5 stars for the narration 5 stars overall **same worded review will appear on Goodreads, Audible.co.uk, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and Kobo**

Ryan Loveless really touched me with the story of Ethan & Carter.  I can definitely see me reading this one over and over just to “relive” the little scenes that made me laugh or sigh.  Everyone deserves to love and to be loved. The way these two responded to each other was a testament to this fact.  Excellent, thought provoking read!

A very sweet and lovely story. I was unsure because of some of the reviews but the story blurb just intrigued me. The MC's are great - unique individuals finding love and romance like everyone else. We just know what their issues are up front...
