Did I Mention I Love You? ~ Estelle Maskame
#FridayBookShare was created by shelleywilson72 over on her blog to help ‘search for that ideal novel/author’, so I thought I’d give it a go!
Here are the rules!
F – First line of the book
R – Recruit fans by adding the book blurb
I – Introduce the main character
D – Delightful design (Add the cover image)
A – Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?
Y – Your favourite line/scene?
And this is my attempt! I hope you enjoy it!
F – If movies and books have taught me anything, it’s that Los Angeles is the greatest city with the greatest people and the greatest beaches.
R – When sixteen-year-old Eden Munro agrees to spend the summer with her estranged father in the beachfront city of Santa Monica, California, she has no idea what she’s letting herself in for. Eden’s parents are divorced and have gone their separate ways, and now her father has a brand new family. For Eden, this means she’s about to meet three new step-brothers. The eldest of the three is Tyler Bruce, a troubled teenager with a short temper and a huge ego. Complete polar opposites, Eden quickly finds herself thrust into a world full of new experiences as Tyler’s group of friends take her under their wing. But the one thing she just can’t understand is Tyler, and the more she presses to figure out the truth about him, the more she finds herself falling for the one person she shouldn’t – her step-brother.
Throw in Tyler’s clingy girlfriend and a guy who has his eyes set on Eden, and there’s secrets, lies and a whole lot of drama. But how can Eden keep her feelings under control? And can she ever work out the truth about Tyler?
Did I Mention I Love You is the first book in the phenomenal DIMILY trilogy, following the lives of Eden Munro and Tyler Bruce as they try to find their way in an increasingly confusing world.
I – Eden Munro is a strong lead character, who takes change in her stride when she moves in with her step-father, who has not spoken to her since walking out on Eden and her mother 3 years ago. I personally found her a very likeable character, and she was a fabulous protagonist.
D-A – I feel that lovers of contemporary would definitely enjoy this book, and also fans of ‘Forbidden’ by Tabitha Suzuma, as they deal with similar issues.
Y – That’s something I’ve always found odd, people smile when they’re sad. There’s no such thing as a sad smile.
Keep On Reading!
