Blog Tour: Say When by Tara West

Say When by Tara West
(Something More #1)
Publication date: July 19th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Romance

He told me to say when, but I can’t. Not with Andrés. 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-fiancée. 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.
My Thoughts  
Say When was a very quick read.  It follows Christina who is struggling with her own personal demons as she tries to go through some changes.  She’s trying to become a stronger person, a person who does not take orders from other people and is trying to take charge of her own life.

Christina was a character that I wanted to sympathize with and someone that I wanted to like and I did at some points but most of the time she came across as very whiny and childish.  I mean at one point she was throwing food at her at fiancé in a restaurant.  You just don’t do that no matter how much of a douche he is.

She flops back and forth between the girl she used to be and the girl she wants to be and I understand how hard that must be but sometimes I just wanted to grab her and smack some sense into her.

I really wish we could have gotten to know more of Andres.  It seems like he could be a very complex character with a lot of layers but just once we were starting to get to the good stuff, the story ended.  I know that there is a sequel and that we will see more of these characters but I just feel like their story cut off at a strange point for this book.

As for the concept, it was a predictable contemporary NA romance.   I felt like I knew what was going to happen before it happened with a few exceptions towards the end.  Even though it was still predictable, I did enjoy it.  I just love fluffy romances and always get caught up in it.   Say When did not disappoint.

A former Texas high school teacher, I enjoyed coaching the writing team and even the hectic deadlines that came with running the school publications. After taking a break to raise my baby girl, I now work from home as a cover artist.
In my spare time, I loves to read, exercise and spend time with family and friends. I contribute the cover art for my Whispers Series and have designed covers for over 500 other books.


  1. This book is a must read. The story of two broken hearts coming together is captivating. I found it very difficult to put this book down when I was needed elsewhere. I ended up staying up half the night to finish it with no regrets of having an early morning with little sleep.

  2. Thank you for your review. :) Tara
