Love has no rules.

It's been a year since Eden Munro last saw Tyler Bruce: her stepbrother...and secret love. Although they swore to ignore their feelings and put their family first, Eden can't help but feel excited when Tyler invites her to join him in New York City for the summer.

But it's not like anything is going to happen. Eden is happy with her boyfriend Dean, and she knows gorgeous, green-eyed Tyler must have moved on as well. But as they spend the long, hot summer in the city that never sleeps, it becomes obvious that those old feelings are still there...simmering beneath the surface. Will Tyler and Eden be able to resist temptation?

Did I Mention I Need You? is book two in Wattpad sensation Estelle Maskame's DIMILY trilogy: three unforgettable summers of secrets, heartbreak and forbidden romance.

Eden and Tyler have a forbidden romance that they've been trying desperately to get over. Stepsiblings is what they are to each other, but they really want more. Unsure how to tackle their relationship and not 100% sure if they can handle the negative connotation that their relationship would bring with it, they try their hardest to remain siblings - but it's just too hard. Will they be able to make their relationship work, or will they have to do the one thing neither of them wants to do - get over the other?

I started this series based on a whim. It sounded like a good story. Who doesn't love a good romance? And when I finished the first book I knew I would have to read the sequel, but I wasn't completely hooked. Did I Mention I Need You? Hooked me....I am now dying to read Did I Mention I Miss You? And I basically feel like I need DIMIMY NOW!

Did I Mention I Need You? starts with Eden still with Dean and going on a 6 week trip to visit Tyler in New York. Eden knows her feelings for Tyler are still there - but she's hoping he's moved on so that she can, and this way they can have a platonic relationship. But when she gets to New York Tyler makes it clear that he hasn't gotten over her. As you could guess things get hectic and crazy on Eden's trip to New York - but in a good way.

It was weird, they're a little more understanding of the whole step-sibling relationship in this book. In Did I Mention I Love You? Eden is ALWAYS worried about how wrong it is that she has feelings for her step-sibling. In Did I Mention I Need You? She's on the understanding end of it, the "if our parent's weren't married we wouldn't be related so it's fine" aspect. Which kind of freaked me out - and then it made me go whoa maybe they shouldn't be together. But who am I kidding, they need to be together.

I give this amazing book 4 stars because the ending...I am NOT OKAY with how this book ended. It's basically why I need the next book. It's a major cliffhanger, and it's not a good one. It's a heart wrenching, soul shattering, not a dry eye in sight cliffhanger. When I started the book I thought we'll get a partial happy ending - knowing there's a third book I knew there'd be turmoil. But what happens is so unexpected and basically the last thing anyone who loves these books would want to read. I was not prepared for it and I'm basically sitting at the edge of my seat waiting for Did I Mention I Miss You?

Basically Maskame has me wrapped around her finger waiting for the final installment in the DIMILY trilogy, and I'm basically begging her to give me a happy ending. Her writing is amazing, she throws twists and turns that you might be expecting, but really you don't think it would happen. And she makes you fall in love with her characters who are honest and easy to love.
