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.
I really enjoyed the characters although if I have any criticism it’s that Dean wasn’t passionate enough for me, I would have liked to have seen a little more aggression in passionate terms. I thought Andy was the right kind of shy, she had that girl next door feel to her, the one you can’t help having some empathy and sympathy for. I’m probably going to sound like a loon for saying this but I really enjoyed Matt’s character, not the abusive part but the perhaps redeemable part. It doesn’t excuse any of the unspeakable things he had done but gave him that humanitarian edge.
All in all, though I really enjoyed it. It’s a testament to an author when they can make you go through several different emotions in one book and that is what happened whilst reading The Taste of Her Words.
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
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. Secondary characters with more flaws than an old chipped tea cup but like the teacup, those flaws gave them substance and made them believable. Made them people I found myself wanting to hold a conversation with. People who were just doing the best they could, even if their best was the wrong way of doing things.
The Taste of Her Words was a thrilling and intoxicating read. My heart broke for Andy and Dean more than once. The author threw everything but the kitchen sink at them, and yet, they still found ways to be true to them and each other.
"I found you in between heart beats,
Inside a caught breath,
Hiding behind a cage of bone.
Dance with me, you said.
Find our rhythm home."
The Taste of Her Words isn't always an easy read, but nothing worth doing is ever easy. If you love angst and drama and a love truer than true, this book is for you, I couldn't recommend it enough.
