Did I Mention I Need You? by Estelle Maskame

It's been a year since eighteen-year-old Eden Munro last saw Tyler Bruce: her stepbrother… and her secret love. Although they called time on their forbidden relationship for the sake of their family, Eden can't help but feel excited when Tyler invites her to join him in New York City for the summer.

Anyway, Eden is happy with her boyfriend Dean, and surely Tyler has moved on too. But as they spend a long, hot summer in the excitement of the city that never sleeps, it soon becomes obvious that they aren't over each other. But can they resist temptation?

In Did I Mention I Need You?, the second volume of Estelle Maskame's phenomenal DIMILY trilogy, Tyler and Eden must face up to their feelings and decide what to do next. Is their love strong enough to face the challenges that lie ahead?

I started this almost as soon as I finished the first book. Its been just over a year since Eden last saw Tyler, and it's been 18 months since they decided to give each other space. But Eden has been invited to spend 6 weeks with Tyler in New York. Never mind that they are step-siblings, never mind that Eden has a boyfriend, as soon as they see each other again all their feelings come rushing back.

New York was an amazing setting; the city was alive with people and more importantly, no one who knew them and their history. It allowed them to indulge in some PDA and an almost-real relationship. The mild panic of being found out is still there but they are both older and Eden especially now fully understands her feelings towards Tyler aren't just going to go away. As they grew closer after so long apart, the chemistry is practically palpable and I was swept up in their city romance. But things come crashing down soon enough!

While in New York, they were visited by old friends and Dean, Eden's boyfriend, and Tyler's ex-girlfriend. Told you things were crashing! With them comes epic secrets,  blackmail and a few fights, a few of them physical. The whole story was an emotional roller coaster, ending in such a shocker, I had tears my eyes.
