Review:

I had such great hopes for “Did I Mention I Need You.”  Unfortunately, they fell far short.

Anyone who read my review of “Did I Mention I Love You” will know that I thought there were many flaws with the book, but I did think that they were fixable and was going to read the second because the premise was so good.  Let me tell you, the problems not only remained but managed to become worse.

Eden is infuriatingly naive and grating.  Tyler was actually pretty good until the out-of-nowhere ending.  There were A LOT of plot points that seemingly had no context.  It could also have used a hundred or so fewer pages.  I’m going to leave the review here, as the waste of a good premise is making me need blood pressure medication.

I can’t recommend this to anyone.  The two stars is for the obvious ability of the author to come up with a good story idea.  I’m hoping to see her fulfill it one day. There is a lot of potential left.

This review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
