Love has no rules.
It's been a year since Eden Munro last saw Tyler Bruce: her stepbrother...and secret love. Although they swore to ignore their feelings and put their family first, Eden can't help but feel excited when Tyler invites her to join him in New York City for the summer.
But it's not like anything is going to happen. Eden is happy with her boyfriend Dean, and she knows gorgeous, green-eyed Tyler must have moved on as well. But as they spend the long, hot summer in the city that never sleeps, it becomes obvious that those old feelings are still there...simmering beneath the surface. Will Tyler and Eden be able to resist temptation?
Did I Mention I Need You? is book two in Wattpad sensation Estelle Maskame's DIMILY trilogy: three unforgettable summers of secrets, heartbreak and forbidden romance.
See my review of book 1, Did I Mention I Love You?.
I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.
I had some issues with book 1, which you'll see if you take a look at my review, but I found myself still wanting to read this book, and am glad I did, because I really enjoyed it.
Did I Mention I Need You? takes place a year after the events of DIMILY, Eden hasn't seen her stepbrother, Tyler, since last summer, and is glad for it. Her relationship with her boyfriend Dean is good, but she can't forget about her love for Tyler, so when he invites her to New York, she knows that it'll be extremely hard to resist him. When they're together, all the feelings they've been trying to repress just come flying forward, and nothing can stop them this time around.
Like I said, I really didn't like book 1. Tyler and Eden had annoyed me then, but now that I know more about them, I can see why so many people like them, and I found myself really enjoying reading their story. I read this book in a day, and couldn't put it down once I'd started. Eden and Tyler, both a year older, have come to terms with the consequences of their romance, and though it'll mean lying to their loved ones, they're willing to do that. Being in New York, without all their old friends and family around them, made it more viable, and they could see what a proper relationship would be like, without the stigma of being step-siblings.
The ending of the book left me desperate for book 3, and luckily I was able to start it asap, otherwise I don't know how I'd have coped. I would definitely recommend this series now, even if you struggled with the first book, because DIMINY? made up for it completely.
