Review: Did I Mention I Need You? (The DIMILY Trilogy #2) by Estelle Maskame

Book Blurb

It's been a year since eighteen-year-old Eden Munro last saw Tyler Bruce: her stepbrother…and her secret love. Although they called time on their forbidden relationship for the sake of their family, Eden can't help but feel excited when Tyler invites her to join him in New York City for the summer.

Anyway, Eden is happy with her boyfriend Dean, and surely Tyler has moved on too. But as they spend a long, hot summer in the excitement of the city that never sleeps, it soon becomes obvious that they aren’t over each other. But can they resist temptation?

In Did I Mention I Need You?, the second volume of Estelle Maskame’s phenomenal DIMILY trilogy, Tyler and Eden must face up to their feelings and decide what to do next. Is their love strong enough to face the challenges that lie ahead?

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Eden has waited a year to see her step-brother Tyler.  She is spending six weeks in New York during the summer visiting him.  She is nervous.  She is unsure what that time will mean to them.
Tyler is keeping his distance and it drives Eden crazy.  She has no idea what to do.  She can’t stand not knowing.  She confronts him requesting him to tell her he is over her.  What she expects doesn’t happen and her confrontation gets worse.  He asks her not to give up.
Eden knows her heart and makes the decision to follow it.  She and Tyler hide their relationship.  They know it will make everyone uncomfortable.  Eden and Tyler make the decision to tell everyone when they go home to California.  Unfortunately the plan gets a hiccup when Rachael comes to visit with Tiffani, Tyler’s ex, and Dean.  Eden and Tyler are shocked.  Tiffani knows their secret and threatens to tell.  They have no idea what to do next.
I love this tortured series.  I read book one and loved it.  It left me emotionally worn out.  This book did exactly the same thing.  Eden and Tyler are both confused by their feelings.  They both try to move on.  Then can’t do it.  They finally give in.

The author created such a heart wrenching situation.  I’m happy that some are okay with the situation.  Love is love.  I love the battle they fight to be together.  It is an emotional journey.  The reader goes along for a wild ride.  You feel the guilt, the shame and the confusion.  Then you feel the relief when they finally decide to move forward.  I was crying by the end.  Hated the way it ended.  To be honest I wanted to throw things.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
