This was a fun NA read. At times, watching their relationship was almost like watching a train wreck. I could not look away no matter how horribly things were falling apart for them. Have no fears this there are no evil cliff hangers and things end well, but watching their miscommunication and seeing them make decisions based on old baggage really still had me cringing at times. Carter and Elizabeth were interesting characters, but my favorite was her sister and I am hoping we get to read more about her in the future. I will admit that I did not totally buy the bad boy side of Carter. I did however really love his passion for helping those with Autism and was excited to see the issue being brought to light without being preachy or stealing from the storyline. I will probably read more by this author.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Into You is the engaging new novel by Danielle Sibarium. There was so much going on within this story, and it kept my attention completely, which is something I love. The characters were believable and lovable. The two main characters have some pretty serious baggage to work through. Elizabeth was very easy for me to relate to with her relationship fears. Carter had even more to work through, so his progress took longer, and I really enjoyed watching his transformation. I worry about him still though. I imagine he'll continue to carry the trust issues for a while. It would be hard not to given what he's been through. Poor Carter was betrayed in the worst way by two people who are supposed to love him most in the world. That is a kind of hurt that's pretty impossible to come back from. Yes, I'm worrying about a fictional character's future. That's the effect this book had though. I felt invested in these characters. Lastly, I absolutely love how they meet, and I love how Carter re-visits that later. It was super cute and a nice touch to the story line.
