REVIEW - The Taste of her Words - Candace Knoebel




TITLE - Taste of her Words
AUTHOR - Candace Knoebel








BLURB:


Andrea was my first taste of love. 

She was there throughout my childhood and into adulthood. Her words were a secret I wasn’t supposed to know. Truths and pain bled onto papers that shredded my innocence and carved a hole in my heart only she could fill. 

Her words were my first kiss. They were the uneven breaths I took when I saw her, and my hands between her thighs inside the dreams she haunted. She was my best friend’s older sister and, even though she didn’t know it yet, she was the pen that would ink our destiny into the stars. 

Dean tempted me to cross a line I never thought I would. 

It had been so long since someone looked at me the way he did. Five years since his starry gaze caressed my words and I ran from a kiss I couldn’t shake. He was everything I should stay away from, but how could I resist the beautifully broken man whose touch stoked a fire within my soul?

Dean was the missing words to my fairy tale. The parchment I could safely put my most intimate thoughts to. But when secrets from the past catch up with us, how could our perfectly plotted ending survive?


REVIEW:


“Single mom falls for brothers best friend, 5 stars”


Oh, how I loved The Taste of Her Words. Knoebel had me falling into the story within the first couple of pages. Andy and Dean have history and odds stacked against them. To top things off Andy is at odds with the fact Dean is younger than her. Love isn’t always an easy journey, something Dean learned a long time ago, but if he gets Andy at the end its all worth it. Knoebel will make you fall in love with the boy next door with alpha tendencies and a sweet demeanor.

Andy lives in the world of words. It doesn’t matter what she’s doing words always come to her. At one time, she planned on making a living with her words, now she’s working a dead-end job trying to support herself and her son. Andy has a crazy ex and feelings for a man she shouldn’t, or should she? What will happen when Andy accepts the man she’s supposed to be with?

Dean has loved Andy for as long as he can remember. He fell in love with her as a person and her words. Words are what brought the two together to begin with. Dean has been standing on the side waiting for her long enough, it’s time to go after what he’s always wanted. As an added bonus, he falls for Andy’s son. Will he get the life he always dreamed of or will Andy’s ex take it all away?

I felt like I was sucked into Dean and Andy’s world, it played like a movie in my mind. My pink book highlighter got a killer workout. I fell in love with not only Andy’s words but Dean’s as well. They were each other’s missing puzzle piece. The secondary characters were on point and I feel like typical for families which made the story more real. 


Take a chance and one-click The Taste of Her Words, in the meantime here are a couple quotes from the story that I loved;

“She felt like home inside my hands.”

“We were an explosion of stars. Two comets set on a predestined path, finally colliding.”

“You’re a thousand beautifully broken pieces, welded together again. Made stronger. More resilient.”
