Release Blitz, ARC Review & Giveaway!- Just Say When by Kaylee Ryan

RDB Banner
Title:  Just Say When
Author:  Kaylee Ryan
Date:  May 12th 2015
Plot:  Saving myself for marriage, not hardly.‬‬
Saving myself for someone who will make my heart race, most definitely.

In theory it's a good plan, however even the best-laid plans fall through. Seeing him, being around him, alerts all my senses and I dream about being his, wrapping myself in his arms and never letting go. The only problem – he sees me as his sister.

My name's Ava Evans and I'm in love with my older brother's best friend, Nate Garrison. 

Burying myself in work for the past two years, avoiding any thought of her, has worked, until now. She's everywhere, in my dreams, in my gym, and in my heart. I'm not sure when I fell in love with Ava Evans, but I am completely in love with my best friends baby sister.

At first she was too young for me and that made it easy to stay away. Now, it's a struggle to keep my distance.

How am I supposed to resist her when I can’t escape her? If he ever found out, it would ruin our friendship. Even with that knowledge all she would have to do is...

Just Say When.

Just Say When was one of those crushing on your brother’s best friend and hiding a sweet spot for your best friend’s baby sis types of reads.

A book standalone, it entailed the tale of Ava Mae and Nate.

What started as what was thought to be an unrequited love on both sides, turns into something more as a chance of fate brings them together and the two find themselves delving into what was thought to be futile and forbidden.

Author Kaylee Ryan definitely bridges a leap of faith between two childhood friends and how they seal that gap into lovers. While there is that doubt about how Ava’s brother and Nate’s bestie will react to their budding relationship, a lot of the plot was about taking the plunge and embracing on some risks of the heart.

A very sweet ride, a bit cheesy at times, but over all cute.

My Rating:

I reach the table just in time to watch as Kara pulls Ava to the dance floor. They stop right at the edge as if they cannot wait a second longer to move to the beat. We watch them in silence, enjoying the show they’re putting on. That is until two guys join them. At first, it looks innocent enough, but when the one closest to Ava puts his hands on her, I know I have to squash this.
            “We can’t let them have all the fun.” I motion to the dance floor. I’m pissed off this guy is mauling her, and I’m pissed off at Zach. I can’t believe he let his groupies pull him away from Ava. He doesn’t deserve her.
            Tanner grins. “You don’t have to tell me twice.” He places his now empty water bottle on the table and heads straight for Kara.
            I’m hot on his heels. I stop in front of Ava and she smiles hesitantly just as the song changes to “Talk Dirty.” The guy who was trying to make his move on her is no longer touching her, which is in his best interest. Ava seems nervous as to where she should touch me. This is new for us. I take her hands and rest them on my shoulders as I move my hips to the beat. I keep an eye on the jackass to make sure he knows she’s unavailable. I don’t want him touching her again.
             I pull her tight little body close to mine, not caring that this is Ava Mae, my best friend’s little sister. She’s forbidden, but for tonight, for this time in which I actually have her in my arms, I don’t let it stop me. Instead, I pull her close and pretend she’s mine.

            Ava rocks her hips against mine and I tighten my grip. Her big brown eyes find mine and her stare is intense. If I didn’t know better, I would think that she wants me just as fiercely as I want her. Pulling her as close as I can get her, I bury my face in her neck and match the rhythm of her hips as they grind against mine. I wish like hell she were mine.
