Andrea was my first taste of love.
She was there throughout my childhood and into adulthood. Her words were a secret I wasn’t supposed to know. Truths and pain bled onto papers that shredded my innocence and carved a hole in my heart only she could fill.
Her words were my first kiss. They were the uneven breaths I took when I saw her, and my hands between her thighs inside the dreams she haunted. She was my best friend’s older sister and, even though she didn’t know it yet, she was the pen that would ink our destiny into the stars.
Dean tempted me to cross a line I never thought I would.
It had been so long since someone looked at me the way he did. Five years since his starry gaze caressed my words and I ran from a kiss I couldn’t shake. He was everything I should stay away from, but how could I resist the beautifully broken man whose touch stoked a fire within my soul?
Dean was the missing words to my fairy tale. The parchment I could safely put my most intimate thoughts to. But when secrets from the past catch up with us, how could our perfectly plotted ending survive?
*This is a full-length, stand-alone novel that touches on the topic of domestic abuse. Suitable for ages 18+*
I generously received this ARC from InkSlingerPR in exchange for an honest review…
Oh my goodness… The Taste of Her Words was such a beautifully captivating story that I am so honored and blessed to have been given the privilege to have read in advanced. This story managed to capture my heart right from the very beginning and held on for dear life until the very end. Candance Knoebel has a magical way with words and this story was truly all about the words. I have never highlighted so many quotes in one book before like I have with this story. The writing was so brilliant and I was blown away by the emotions I experienced while devouring this one of a kind story.
Age…six years older to be exact…is but a number in this breathtakingly emotional read about second chances (although this is not a traditional second chance romance I do classify it as one since they did share the perfect kiss five long years ago). Hands down this story took me on a journey of emotions and gave me all the FEELS. Andy and Dean are the kind of couple that readers will root for until the end of time. These two are absolutely perfect for each other and are able to defy all odds to be together. In many ways I believe that these two could very well share the same soul and heartbeat because they are the perfect match.
Andy and Dean’s story is absolutely special and one of my most impactful reads of 2017. I cannot wait to see what the author comes up with next!
