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.

At A Glance


The Good

If you are into squeaky clean romances, Wanted by You might be for you. There are some very sweet parts and sweet characters.

The Bad

I stopped at 43%. I just couldn’t anymore. I was so bored, it was painful. Where the hell was the excitement, the passion, the drama? Maybe I didn’t wait long enough but 43% is far enough along for SOMETHING to happen. Here is what this book is about in a nutshell: Carter and Ellyson, college friends, reunite after years apart. They finally cave to their physical attraction and then they love each other. The end. *snore* I kept waiting for something worth reading to happen but it never did. If you can’t catch a reader’s attention by 10%, shame on you, if you can’t catch a reader’s attention by 43%, WTF?

The writing and dialogue were pretty corny as well. I found myself rolling my eyes quite a few times.

This book had no edge, that’s the best way I can put it.

The Snuggly

It was mediocre on hotness level. Nothing to write home about. (FYI: Never write home about your sex life, makes Thanksgiving awkward)

Final Thoughts

Except for being a little sweet, Wanted by You is not redeemable. And if it was, it should have been well before the 43% read mark. Not recommended.

    A book should make you want to keep reading it before 43% mark. Hopefully your next book will be better.

    I guess this is good for those who are looking for clean and safe romances. But probably not something for you as there needs to be something more exciting or passionate to keep you hooked! The cover doesn’t really match the content, right?
