Books are full of words, but The Taste of Her Words made them take on a life of their own. Each chapter started with a poem, a promise of what the chapter would mean for the characters.
"Break me in half and mold me back together.
Slit me and watch me bleed love.
I'm aching to feel."
The Taste of Her Words is a second chance romance about Andrea 'Andy' and Dean.
They grew up together; Dean is Andy's brother's best friend. A chance encounter one night leads them back onto the slippery slope of having to deal with their feelings for one another.
"The way he moved his hips sent shivers up my spine. I hadn't known he could dance. Didn't know I was walking myself into a trap I wasn't sure I wanted to escape."
"...Say you don't see me like that. Admit you don't want me to kiss you again. Tell me you aren't curious."
Andy and Dean share a passion, a hunger for words nothing or no one can abate.
"I could love you, if I let me.
I could love you, if I don't forget me.
You're handing your heart,
While I hide in the dark.
I could love you, if you let me.
I could love you, if you can accept me."
Their love was a journey pot marked with secrets and bad choices. Their histories nipping at their heels like hell-hounds out for blood.
"...How could I have walked away from someone who knew me to my marrow? I thought I was doing what was best for both of us. In the end, I was only hurting us more."
Words in this book were used to their fullest potential. Two characters so in tune with their own sense of self.Read more ›
Okay, so Andy is a single mother taking care of her 10-year-old son. She also happens to be an aspiring writer but due to being a single mother and life getting in the way she is unable to fulfill that dream. She is also dealing with a bullying and controlling ex who just happens to be the father of her son who is hell bent on making her life as miserable as possible by going after full custody of their son just so he can have all the power over her. Andy is also secretly in love with her younger brothers’ best friend.
Dean has always had a thing for Andy and five years ago they ended up kissing, however because of Andy and her fears and her reluctance to rock the boat with her ex and protect her son, Andy walks away. Obviously, Dean is devastated.
Now it's the present day and they're thrown back into each other’s lives. The old feelings are still there, even more so. Those pent-up feelings are tenfold now and the attraction resurfaces. After spending a little time together, they begin the relationship they wanted to start 5 years ago. BUT things aren’t as easy and care free as they seem and starting a relationship whilst fending off all sorts of issues that are thrown their way isn’t going to be easy.Read more ›
I loved the way that the characters were always putting each other's feelings before their own. I must say I did love Dean straight away; he was kind, gentle and very loving to Andy and her son, Charlie. At times I wanted to shake Andy though and say “look what's being offered to you”!
Deans best friend’s sister is five years his senior and with a ten year old son; but it doesn't stop him from sneaking a first kiss from her 5 years previous. As well as holding on to the fact she will be his one day.
The story picks up five years after the kiss, during a chance meeting when they both go home for the July 4th family get together. There's always been a spark between them but Andy now comes with baggage; a kid, a job in a bar, going nowhere in life and a physco ex. Dean has his dark past too but will he ever let Andy in to know of his pain? Will the age gap between them matter? Will they let what other people, including their families, say keep them from their HEA? You will have to read it for yourself to find out.
The need to know if they'll give in to their true feelings was immense and the way the story flowed so well made it a pleasure to read. This is the first book I have read from this author and I definitely liked what I read.
A Book Lovers Emporium
"Cover the cracks until I'm a patchwork of your love."
There are some great quotes in this story. I enjoyed the characters and the story line. It is a contemporary romance that touches on several real life situations.
Andy and Dean always had a connection with their love of words.
Andy is a single mom trying to navigate life. She wants to be strong and independent but sometimes your strength is shown when you know it is time to ask for help.
Dean is her brothers best friend. She hasn't seen him years until her brother and his friends show up at the bar where she works.
And here starts the story of love, lies and secrets.
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
