I am so happy Carter got his own story. His story is one of soul-searching, finding oneself rather than the previous books of drama and heartache. Carter, as we all know from the stories before Declaration, has always loved Kate, and decides his heart needs a break. Thinking he might find it in Florida, Carter ends up meeting Jackson, Emma, and Whitney. From there, Cater feels that he just might move on from Kate with Whitney. Both have their history with bad relationships and heartache, these two are just so afraid to speak that lines get crossed and things get miss-read. No relationship is ever easy, especially in the beginning, and when other people are trying to sabotage you, a disaster waiting to happen. I liked the final journey and the last piece of the puzzle for this group, especially the end with a sneak peek at many years down the road. Rachael will make her fans very happy with this one. Enjoy.
Featuring characters from Love and Relativity, a Preservation Series Companion Novel
Carter Montgomery spent most of his life blending in, and he liked it that way. It was always better to be seen, not heard. And while a theatric streak and friendly demeanor might have fooled most people, he knew the truth—he was the shy one. The quiet kid most people forgot about. Some might have considered that a bad thing, but those people all wanted to be in the spotlight.
The only place Carter didn’t mind attention was on stage, with The Hellions. Once content in his comfort zone in Seattle, Washington, he only knew three things: confrontation was to be avoided, keeping the peace was priority, and the moment he lost Kate Parker to Professor Ryan Campbell, he had no clue what to do with his life. Playing gigs, working at Pike Place Market, and watching BBC after the love of his life sailed off into the sunset just wasn’t going to cut it anymore.
Desperate to escape his rut, he takes a cue from Kate and chooses a random place to relocate—a small island across the country, where no one knows his name and memories of unrequited love aren’t found at every turn. Just when he thinks he’s found the perfect place to unwind and sink back into the shadows, in bursts Whitney Sinclair, a saucy firecracker who loves life and refuses to settle for second best. Full of contagious energy, she dares him to be brave, convincing him that it might finally be time to tell the world what he wants.
It might be time to make a declaration.
