When sixteen-year-old Eden Munro agrees to spend the summer with her estranged father in the beachfront city of Santa Monica, California, she has no idea what she’s letting herself in for. Eden's parents are divorced and have gone their separate ways, and now her father has a brand new family. For Eden, this means she's about to meet three new step-brothers. The eldest of the three is Tyler Bruce, a troubled teenager with a short temper and a huge ego.

Complete polar opposites, Eden quickly finds herself thrust into a world full of new experiences as Tyler's group of friends take her under their wing. But the one thing she just can't understand is Tyler, and the more she presses to figure out the truth about him, the more she finds herself falling for the one person she shouldn't – her step-brother.
Throw in Tyler's clingy girlfriend and a guy who has his eyes set on Eden, and there's secrets, lies and a whole lot of drama. But how can Eden keep her feelings under control?

And can she ever work out the truth about Tyler?

Did I Mention I Love You is the first book in the phenomenal DIMILY trilogy, following the lives of Eden Munro and Tyler Bruce as they try to find their way in an increasingly confusing world.

My Review

I think this is the lowest rating I’ve given to a book all year. I actually can’t remember the last time I gave something only two stars on Goodreads. And usually, I want to give half stars or something, but honestly this was just a straight two stars. I don’t know if I’m the only one who thought this book was just boring, but I did. It was like things were constantly happening, but when I actually took a step back and thought about it, nothing was happening.


I don’t really know what else to even review. The writing reminded me of a Wattpad fanfiction, kind of exactly what After was like, and i just found out that it was on Wattpad. I don’t know how I missed that, but apparently that’s a real thing.

I’ll maybe try and get through the second one, since Netgalley just emailed it to me. I don’t think I even applied for it, but they approved me.. So maybe that’s a sign from the book gods that I just didn’t read this at the right time and I might actually like it if I gave it another try.

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!

My Rating

  • Weird.. I don’t know how I’d feel about the whole step-brother thing. It’s not like there’s anything wrong but.. it’s still weird..
    Hope the second one reads better than the first!!

    • I didn’t really mention that in the review because lord knows someone would get offended by it, but I totally agree that it weirded me out. I grew up with step siblings, and just the thought of it is so strange to me!

  • I’ve seen some really good reviews for this and some really bad reviews for it…I just haven’t read it (and don’t really know if I plan to, honestly). It seems like a really weird, fluffy plot, so I’m just not sure. Great review, though!
