Favourite Hello. Hardest Goodbye. by E.S. Carter Blog Tour


I feel him.
Before I even lay eyes on him, I sense him.
The air in the room seems charged, my awareness of him heightened, but he is a stranger to me.
Unfamiliar, yet familiar.
Unknown, yet known.
And something inside me says, "Hello, I've been waiting for you."


I see him.
I've seen him a hundred times before and I know this will not be the last, but each time I do, I feel it.
That invisible tether.
I remember everything.
I remember him.
His eyes lock with mine and then move away too quickly.
I am nothing more than a stranger, another face in the crowd.
While he is my favourite hello, and my hardest goodbye.

I wasn't prepared for this book. I had just come off of reading an emotional book and wasn't expecting this one to be one as well. Holy crap on a cracker. Ellis and Macsen have an epic story, I won't ruin it for you but one piece of advice, have tissue and be prepared. Ugh, my heart took a beating. I chewed all my nails off too. Sweet lord, this was a good book. I'll have to say it's top five of all time books to completely shatter me.

This is a sweet and angsty romance set in a beautiful Welsh village. It’s the story of businessman Macsen who finds his soulmate Ellis in a sleepy seaside town.

The whole premise of this story requires readers to buy into a completely bizarre but incredibly romantic storyline about soulmates and destiny. Some readers will find this easier than others. The book isn’t for readers who need their romance to feel believable, realistic, or plausible. It’s a book for die hard romantics who want to believe in true love.

At its heart, this is an epic romance between two special men. I love Ellis’ family, friends, and neighbours and his quirky village is charming. Macsen is a little more guarded and isolated but his generosity and kindness is lovely. This is a sexy story full of passionate intimate moments, raw emotion, and charged sexual chemistry.

This is a book that is meant to play with readers’ emotions. For the most part, I lost myself in the relationship between Ellis and Macsen. I feel like the ending lets the story down somewhat. It’s both predictable and very abrupt, lacking the emotional impact I expected at the end of such a passionate romance.

Ellis and Macsen's love story is beautiful and not like anything I've read before. Usually in a review I'd talk about the characters and events and how they made me feel but I won't here because I don't want to give anything away.

I will say this love story is romantic and sexy and pulled at all my heartstrings in many different ways. It also had me crying my eyes out. Next time I visit a small town with a great pub, I know I'll be thinking of Macsen and Ellis. Favourite Hello. Hardest Goodbye. is simply wonderful.

USA Today Bestselling Author, ES Carter, lives in Cardiff, South Wales—the home of castles, dragons, and folklore.

Her family joke that she was born with a book in her hand, and the urge to write stories soon followed.

At eleven, she won her school's literary prize. At ages fourteen to sixteen – her poetry phase after falling in love with Dylan Thomas and e.e. cummings – she had a few poems published, but life, love, and family overtook her dreams, and she was in her thirties when she began the scary journey of self-publishing.

Her debut and internationally best-selling series, Love by Numbers, are a set of interconnected stand-alone romances, all with varying themes of love. From second-chance to romantic comedy and M/M romance. These stories do not need to be read in order (apart from the opening duet Nineteen/Twenty One), in fact, she is often guilty of advising readers to start at the last book and work their way back through.

Contemporary romance is not the only genre she writes, her second series, The Red Order, is as dark and twisted as you can get, but there is beauty there too if you can open your eyes and look.

With many more stories bursting to be set free, she hopes you stay along for the ride.

She loves to connect with readers, so please feel free to friend/follow her on social media.
