Overview

Just friends.
We're just friends.
No, really. She's just my best friend...

Arizona Turner has been my best friend since fourth grade, even when we "hated" each other. We've been there for one another through first kisses, first "times," and we've been each other's constant when good relationships turned bad. (We even went to colleges that were minutes away from each other...)

Throughout the years, and despite what anyone says, we've never crossed the line.

Never thought about it.
Never wanted to.
Until one night changed everything.
At least, it should've...

Just friends.
We're just friends.
I'm only saying this until I figure out if she's still "just" my best friend...

As with all of Whitney G's books, I enjoyed this one immensely. The friendship between Carter and Arizona is one most of us can only hope to have and Whitney portrayed it perfectly. Hilarious at times and heartbreakingly poignant others, Sincerely, Carter is a solid 5 stars and I don't give those often.

I enjoyed this book so much.. Like with all of Whitney's books the relationship between characters is awesome. Its so hard to put her books down. I know this was a stand alone novel but I could read a book about some of the other characters, Jason or Nicole?

Reviewed by Francesca and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog I’m not quite sure why I went into this book thinking I would get a good jerk hero. I guess it all goes back to Reasonable Doubt. But other than my expectation, there was no jerk in sight. Yes, Carter and Arizona are childhood nemesis turned best friends turned lovers (like crack to me!) but he is seriously so freaking cute and adorable there was nothing to love to hate about him! Friends from 4th (or 5th grade, as they like to argue about) they have always been each others’ best friends. Never seeing the other in a sexual way, but also putting that friendship above any relationship they would have. Which often destroyed those attempts at relationships. The last summmer of college is life altering for both of them when they start to see each other as more. I absolutely loved their relationship right from the start. Yes, the death threats when they were kids. OMG how cute and adorable where they? And those letters turned into sweeter and deeper connections. Between friends, between lovers. SINCERELY, CARTER would be the perfect summmer read (call me crazy for reading this in the dead of winter). It was a very sweet story, but in true Whitney G fashion, their relationship is also very hot. Carter knows his way around a woman, especially when he knows her as well as he Arizona. Maybe he knows more about what she wants than she knows herself. If there is one thing that I truly love and makes me all giddy is a hero who goes after the girl. With everything he has. So yeah, Carter, I may be a little in love with you! This is definitely different than Reasonable Doubt, but nonetheless an awesome story.

I have read every book by Whitney G. She is an amazing writer. This book made me laugh and cry. I could not put the book down. There are so many books out there about " Best Friends" and I have to say by far that this book was the best . I can't wait for another Whitney G. book

Friends to lovers is my absolute FAVE type of read. I love that they are truly BFF's after hating each other. I love the texts and notes passed between the two as children. I LOVE the history we get. The awakening takes them by surprise and then the unthinkable happens...but the ending? Damn, I love Carter! He's got balls and isn't afraid to put it out there. Another slam dunk for Whit. I just eat her stories up!

I may be partial to any book that Whitney G writes, however I loved Sincerely, Carter. As you may read the synopsis, you have an idea of what may happen. What I liked about the beginning of the story was they hated each other. I like it when the story rolls into feelings that grow throughout years. More believable. Arizona was pretty awesome. Carter, amazing. Whitney G's characters are imperfect in a perfect way. Overall great solid story and just the way I like my books to end. I am so glad this can be a stand alone book. Over the series books. I need resolution immediately! This is a re-reader!

Piggybacking off the bestselling Reasonable Doubt series, this hilarious friends to lovers standalone was a breath of fresh air. It was lighter, yet still as sexy in it’s own way. For me, getting a new book from Whitney is like winning the lottery, so you can imagine how excited I was when this precious popped up on my Kindle.  This book started off with a bang! It had a really great comedic intro where we get to see the situation between young Arizona and Carter. The scenes following that show a grown up Carter with his current girl, which had me giggling like a madwoman. Basically I was laughing pretty much all the way through this book. Arizona and Carter have been best friends since the fifth grade fourth grade. They’ve been through it all side by side. They’ve been there for each other whenever their relationships go down the drain, usually because of the pair’s closeness. Boyfriends, girlfriends, family, friends, they all question the validity of their “just friends” label, but that’s really what it is. In the beginning anyways.  Their platonic mindset for one another suddenly begins to shift and the veil is lifted from both their eyes. But right when these newly awakened feelings start surfacing, Ari and Carter are about to separate—Ari is off to culinary school and Carter is staying in town to finish up law school. Will Ari and Carter take their relationship to the next level or will their friendship end up shattered? ********** Everything about these two amazing characters pulled me in and everything about their relationship made me giddy. The instant they realized how attractive they were was highly amusing. In theory, it sounds absurd, but when you’re reading it it makes complete sense. And if you’re like me, you’ve lived it, so you can relate to what they’re both going through in that exact moment of epiphany.  Ari and Carter had the kind of dream relationship where your significant other isn’t just a lover but your best friend. They share a special type of bond that is truly envious. Aside from the overall comedy in the story, the banter was superb and really made this book. Their relationship really felt authentic to that of true best friends.  The texts, the emails, the friendly squabbles. Absolutely ADORABLE!! The flashbacks that took us back to the past were cute and funny letters between them which gave the story a proper foundation. They were perfectly placed within the book and never distracted from what was happening in the present. The flashbacks solidified the strong friendship and added depth to the characters, as well as the story.  Though difficult endure, I rather enjoyed the trial they had to go through in order to realize what they needed. It gave the story heart and wasn’t a quick transition with an automatic happily ever after. I really felt the emotions from both of them during that tough and confusing time. There was a really great balance between sweet and sexy throughout the book that made this book incredibly enjoyable. By the end of the book, my mouth was in a permanent smile. That has never happened before! The only thing negative I have about it is that the end seemed a tad bit rushed. I just really wish this book had an epilogue. I fell HARD for these characters and grew so attached to them in the 270+ pages, I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to them. I needed a little extra to  fully feel satiated with their new romantic relationship. A little bit of sweet, funny, and sexy bundled together for an all around heartwarming, good time story. Highly recommend it to those fans of the friends to lovers trope.

LOVE this book! I have always love the friend first then become lover later theme. I love the friendship between Carter and Ari, from the first time they met and all the way to ending of the books. If you have not read this book then grab a copy and start reading!

So very sweet! I cannot remember the last time I have enjoyed reading a book this much. But of course I always love reading Whitney's books.All of her characters have great personality and chemistry but the dynamic of their shared history moves this story in a really interesting direction.Of course no story penned by the talented miss Whitney would be complete without a little bawd and a lot of heart and we wouldn't want it any other way ;)

Sincerely, Carter by Whitney Gracia Williams is a stand-alone romance about best friends who fall in realization that they have always loved each other. Filled with quirky humor, absolutely hilarious flashbacks to grade school and the communication between the much younger versions of Carter and Arizona, and with a few angsty deep-feels thrown in for good measure, this book was a "devour in one sitting, the hell with the world" type book for me. Carter and Arizona have been best friends since fourth grade (or fifth depending on which one you are talking to) and they have always been platonic, never looked at each other that way, cannot understand why no one ever seems to believe them. Until that moment, of course, when a switch is flipped and they suddenly cannot STOP seeing each other as more. They already know each others dirtiest secrets and dark pasts so there's nothing to hide, right? I loved it. I know you will too. The interactions between ALL the characters just flowed so well. It was a pleasure to read. Except at around 90% in when I wanted to gut punch Ari - Oooh she made me mad!!!!

Sincerely, Carter reminded me of that saying, “Easy as pie.” It was fast, low on the drama, and adept to understand where and what makes Carter and Arizona “Ari”’s relationship so solid, so impenetrable and everlasting that it stemmed from 4th-5th grade all the way to adulthood. I loved how author Whitney Garcia Williams doesn’t make their romance bloom overnight but rather in increments of self-realization. While both characters do know after they overstep the boundaries of friend and lover that they’re going in way over their heads to unmarked territory, I did admire how both acknowledged that their relationship would change a bit, but over all, knew that they still had and would always be there for one another no matter what. Sure, there was uncertainty and some rough patches, but I liked how things weren’t over drawn out or dramatized. I really hate drama-lama’s and dread them in these types of scenarios and this read did not hit those buttons for me. Carter and Ari’s characters were likable, relatable, had great rapport with one another and were very witty and up front. Just what I envision for “friends to lovers” types of reads. Author Whitney G. Williams has definitely made a fan out of me, as this is my first read of hers, and I’m quite taken with her writing! I would love to read more from her! I gobbled up every piece of it and laughed deviously when both would call each other on dates and even ditch said date to hang out or rescue one another. It was so endearing yet scandalous! Anyway, a super sweet, steamy and endearing read that shows that unconditional love transcends all and everything, building from unseemly friendships into more!!

I really enjoyed the book, and it was really nice to find a stand-alone book so I don't have to wait months to find out how it ends. I enjoyed the characters, and thought it was a fun read. I'd have liked to see the ending beefed up a little...it was just too easy. But all-in-all, I enjoyed reading this one.
