Summary taken from Goodreads:
***Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and mature situations. Not intended for young adult readers.*** He told me to say when, but I can't. Not with Andres. It's so hard to say anything when he's trailing feather soft kisses down my neck, or when his touch sends hot currents of lust rippling across my skin. Then there's the way he smiles and offers soft words of encouragement when I'm creating art, almost like he believes I have talent. He's not like any guy I've ever met. Not like my ex-fiance. Not like my father. He's got me thinking that maybe we can have something more. More than just lust, degradation, and abuse. And now I'm scared, because that means I'll have to trust him with more than just my body, but with my heart, too. Christina Duval
Let me tell you about Say When. First hottie machanic/ex-military man that really knows how to carry himself in that oh-so-sexy way and really knows how to treat a girl. Oh, and did I mention that he is humble? And will inherit quite a bit, but feels bad about it? He’s the trifecta. His name...Andres. He kind of runs into Christina when she is in a bit of a pickle and her friend is being a jerk. At first I didn’t really like Christina. She stomped her foot and threw chinese food (and in my circle of friends you DO NOT throw chinese food...that stuff is delicious), and I thought “How old are you?”. Luckily that lasted all of one page. Then she became someone I rather liked. You see at the beginning of this story Christina is finally getting her head out of her butt. She is finally starting to see things clearly. Her fiancé is a total douche and her best friend doesn’t act like a friend at all--and has some serious problems that she needs to deal with. Anyhow, back to the point. From the moment Christina meets Andres something changes between the two of them...and it may or may not involve some really hot moments. There were some things that bugged me. They really didn’t seem that into each other. The kind of seemed more awkward around each other. On top of that they also don’t really get to know each other. She reveals her love of painting, and he reveals what happened over seas, and in the end she lets the “big-thing-in-her-past” slip. But does anyone learn what each others favourite colours is? Or food? That kind of random little things never really come up. It was more focused on the sexiness and I guess they got to “know each other” that way. A little bit more of a connection between the two would have been nice. Also...I don’t think he even tells her that he is/will be rich. It doesn’t matter, but it was written in the story and therefore should have been mentioned to Christina. And finally...the ending. The ending sort of ends abruptly. It doesn’t really leave anything hanging I just thought there would be a little bit more to bring the story down from its climax. Luckily there is a second in the series that also stars these two awesome characters.. But, all of that aside it was still a very good read and I really enjoyed the characters.
I guess just the way the plot was laid out, and a little bit more romance (not sexiness, but romance) would have been better. But...luckily there is a #2 on the way that is all about these two characters.
Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):
Overall the story was easy to follow. I didn’t have any issues with regards to writing style or being able to follow along. the story was interesting and I liked how the main female wasn’t dependent on anyone and learnt to find her own way in the world.
