Blog Tour: SAY WHEN by Tara West, book review and giveaway


Say When by Tara West
(Something More #1)
Publication date: July 19th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Romance


Synopsis:

He told me to say when, but I can’t. Not with Andrés. It’s so hard to say anything when he’s trailing feather soft kisses down my neck, or when his touch sends hot currents of lust rippling across my skin.

Then there’s the way he smiles and offers soft words of encouragement when I’m creating art, almost like he believes I have talent.

He’s not like any guy I’ve ever met. Not like my ex-fiancée. Not like my father. He’s got me thinking that maybe we can have something more. More than just lust, degradation, and abuse.

And now I’m scared, because that means I’ll have to trust him with more than just my body, but with my heart, too.

A_TiffyFit's Review: This was a fast-paced read that immediately had you wishing Christina would stand up for herself...and she does! I loathe her mother, loathe her ex-fiance, am disgusted by her so-called friend, and cheer for Christina and Andrés.

I don't know how Christina stomached her fiance, Jackson, to begin with, all because her nasty mother wants her to marry rich, but I found it hysterical that every time they tried to have sex lately, Christina would get physically ill. If that isn't telling, I don't know what is! Her drug-addicted slut of a friend, Karri, only loosely deserves the title of "friend." I think that ship sailed a long time ago and don't know why Christina continues to keep trying. I suppose it's because it's one constant in her life from childhood into adulthood. At the point where Christina meets Andrés, she has ditched her loser but rich fiance, Jack, has gotten into a fight with Karri, and is ready to relax and unwind and celebrate her 21st birthday.

Hot one night stand for Christina...or is it? Seems like there is a strong connection for both her and Andrés and I was pleased that she contacted him again for another meeting. And that leads to a job and the opportunity for some financial independence for her! You feel bad for Christina. She is bullied by her mother, treated like shit by Jack, has an incident in her past that she is still dealing with, and then discovers she is betrayed by someone who should ALWAYS have supported her. She and Andrés both have some obstacles to overcome personally.

A nice, well-paced steamy romance that leads you hanging for book two, SAY YES, due out soon! This is a quick read that you can spend an afternoon reading...perfect for the colder weather coming to warm you up. And with SAY YES coming out soon...I'd pick up both if I were you! Thank you to the author and tour organizer for my read to review copy!
