I LOVE ITS GUTS!
Sophie & Carter by Chelsea Fine was a mind-blowing, remarkable short story. It only took me an hour and a half to finish this novel.
I freaking adored Sophie & Carter. Sophie just exudes goodness and positivity. Carter is loving, gentle and patient. Both characters have been dealt a bad hand. Separately, they both find themselves is extreme situations that most eighteen year olds don’t have to face. Both could be selfish and chose to run away from their problems, but they choose to fight and stick it out. They are each other’s rock, and I admire them.
This book really highlights how talented the author is. From the first page, Chelsea Fine pulls you into the characters lives and their emotions. I think she is brilliant because with very few words she got me hooked to the story and connected with the characters on a deep emotional level (not an easy thing to do). She doesn’t waste one single word in this story. I am really looking forward to seeing what she writes next.
I gave Sophie & Carter by Chelsea Fine 4 STARS. It’s a powerful love story that will have you addicted from the first page, and it never gets dull, not for a second. Read this story. It’s not expensive, it’s a phenomenal story, and it doesn’t take long to read.
If you enjoy Sophie & Carter I recommend Heart on a Chain by Cindy C. Bennett and vice versa.
