Soon, Carter realizes he is falling in love with her.
Months after being transferred from the hospital, to a rehabilitation facility, he suddenly wakes up with a passion to live that he never had before and a determination to find the one person he feels may be able to help him put the pieces of his life together again. However, when he returns to the hospital, Kinley is gone and Carter must try to find her based solely on the things she shared with him while he was in a coma.
Only, nothing is as it seems and Carter learns the biggest lesson of them all… the differences between expectation, perception, and reality.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
This book wasn’t an easy one to read in the sense that it deals with some heavy topics: Depression, self-harm, suicide, prejudice and self-image. Carter has some major demons that he is fighting, and it all leads him to a suicide attempt. Except that he ends up in a coma where he can hear the conversations of those around him. But it’s not only his family that he’s listening to. Carter begins to fall for the sweet nurse, Kinley, taking care of him. So when he awakens from his coma, he sets out to find her, sure that she is The One.
Carter’s journey in tracking down Kinley is a winding one. He learns alot about himself, and seemingly is a different person. But I felt like the romance between the two was TOLD to me, not SHOWN to me. And all of the family issues are suddenly solved with a happy ending. I wanted to see more struggle and growth amongst Carter’s entire family.
But overall, Love, Cutter was a page-turner with likable characters and relevant social issues that really made me stop and think. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
