Carter was captivated by Ellyson Evans the moment he laid eyes on her, but she was the one girl who didn’t beg for his attention.

He wanted her.

Ellyson vowed to never fall in love, because love can destroy you, but then she met Carter Jennings.

She wanted him.

Unwilling to risk their comfortable friendship, neither confessed their desires.

Losing touch after college, a chance meeting reconnects them.

They want each other.

But love in the city is never quite that easy.

My Review:

Wanted By You is the debut novel from author Steph Nuss and the first in her Love in the City Series.  Wow…what a kick ass debut.  I loved this book!

Carter and Ellyson met the very first day of their college career and became fast and close friends.  But that’s all they ever were.  Close friends.  Oh, not because they didn’t have feelings that went beyond that because they both did.  They both also had reasons for never acting upon those feelings and so it stayed in the ‘friend zone” for them.  Soon college would be over and Carter had to head home to Texas to help his family’s business and they lost touch.  Fast forward to five years later….

Carter Jennings can’t believe he’s finally back in New York and has landed a fabulous job as an English professor at his college alma matter.  Of course being back here reminds him of Ellyson and has him wondering even more what she is doing these days and where she is.  He can’t believe he let her slip away from him five years ago.  He knew now without a doubt that she was the one woman for him.  Now that he’s getting his life together back in NY, he knows his next mission is to tack her down.  Little did he know that he wouldn’t have to look too far…

Psychologist Ellyson Evans has made her dreams come true after graduation by opening her own practice and doing what she’s dreamed of.  Mental health and helping others.  She loved being able to stay in New York and stay close to her dad.  After losing her mom to cancer when she was younger, he was her only family and she wouldn’t dream of leaving.  Not even to move to Texas.  Not that Carter had asked her anything like that when he left.  Elly was the one who secretly pined for Carter, not the other way around.  She still missed him every day, even five years later.  Turns out she wouldn’t have to miss him much more when she runs into him while visiting a professor friend and immediately knows she won’t let him get away twice.

Fate clearly had a plan for Carter and Elly and brought them back together at just the right time.  It may have taken five years, but now they were both ready to admit their feelings and give love a try.  But would it be enough to get past old fears?

Oh my, how I loved this book!  I read it on my flight home from vacation and the poor man in front of me had to deal with my giggling, dreamy sighs and ugly tears….but I couldn’t help it!  Carter and Elly’s story is just so good!  I loved getting to read when they met and how close they became but what I loved more was that they went their separate ways and came back older and wiser.  They were able to grow together as well as apart and when they were ultimately reunited, they were ready to admit they both held feelings that went much deeper than friends.  Carter is just so amazing.  He is sexy, smart, caring, and will do anything for Elly.  He practically does.  He had me in a puddle of lovey-dovey goo by the end of this book.  Seriously, he may be one of the most perfect guys ever.  He’s there for Elly when she needs him most (no spoilers but I will say she goes through some serious things and will really need him!) and I loved him even more for that.  Elly is a great match for Carter.  She is smart, beautiful, confident, and kind.  She is also afraid.  Afraid of loving and losing…the way she lost her mother.  Luckily for her, Carter isn’t one to back away when the road gets rough.

The ending to this book was simply perfect and had me crying happy tears and grinning a big goofy grin.  Oh, how I loved it!

There’s also a fabulous cast of characters in Carter and Elly’s friends.  I can’t wait to read more of this series!

Thank you, Steph, for a fabulous book and for giving us Carter and Elly!
