Review— Just Don't Mention It (DIMILY #4) by Estelle Maskame

Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Published: December 3, 2019

Rating: 4 stars

Can love heal all wounds?

At seventeen, Tyler Bruce is hot -- a hot mess. His girlfriend is a knockout, his reputation's untouchable, parties are nothing without him. Even his car is unreal. But inside Tyler is broken -- and he'll stop at nothing to keep that a secret.

Then one summer Eden comes to stay. She's upfront, sharp and far more enticing than a stepsister should be. She also sees straight through Tyler's bad boy facade to the vulnerable kid within. The quiet kid who took all the punches. As Eden draws Tyler in, his defenses start to crumble around him. In his past, vulnerability only brought him danger. But now, it might just bring him everything he needs...if it doesn't break him.

As irresistible and dazzling as its Californian backdrop, Just Don't Mention It is a companion novel to the Did I Mention I Miss You trilogy that explores Tyler's story -- his heart-stopping tale of past hurt, finding hope and figuring out who the hell he wants to be.

Tyler’s story is rough and insanely heartbreaking. This is for all you DIMLY fans that have wondered about this mysterious and broken boy. We see first hand the pain, anguish, and absolute torture that Tyler has to endure. 

That is until he met Eden—beautiful, outspoken, and u like anyone Tyler has ever known. Seeing everything through his eyes brought back all the old feelings from the first book in the series. Back to the time that I fell in love with Maskame’s written word and that characters she accurately portrayed. 

If you’re a new reader of the series, I envy you. While you could absolutely read this without reading all the other books, I think you’d appreciate it more having read from book one. I loved this! Clearly. Plus I’m a sucker stepbrother/stepsister romances.
