Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC given in exchange for my honest review.

Wow. This is a tough one. If it were not for the excellent writing, I may not have made it through the entire book. However, because it is so well written, I was pretty much glued to it.

Please, future possible reader, be aware that there are some awful things in this book that happen to good people. The story is full of possible triggers for sensitive readers. To say this is a story that is an emotional rollercoaster is p

I usually like reading about addictions, I find it really interesting when done properly. And I think Tricia Best did a really good job explaining and getting into an addict's mindset (I haven't really read a great deal about porn addicts, so I did find it intriguing). What stopped me from loving this book was the characters. They were just a bit...flat. And cheesy.

There were times at the beginning of the book where I felt sorry for Taylor (her boyfriend was using her because of their rich dadd
In fairness I did not get very far with this book. However, right off the bat I did not care for the writing style. It was in 3rd person, which I could have lived with, but the style itself was info overload. It was all telling, with emotion and I found that I couldn't stand either one of the 2 girl characters.

I could have kept reading, but I find that when something annoys me I won't rate it well, and I didn't feel like forcing myself to keep going.

Check out the other reviews, maybe this book

This book had an all too rare quality for a book in this genre: a fresh, unique plot told in a well thought, out, well paced and well executed way. It dealt with some difficult subjects in a realistic but engrossing way. And I thank the author for writing outside the box.
The story addresses a type of addiction I don't know too much about, so I trust the author has done her research, and that the details she presents about the struggles of the main character are accurate. This tale is populated w

I received this book through Net galley in return for an honest review. As a warning I will say this book may trigger people on many levels, so read with caution.
The first half of the book really irritated me and I almost did not finish it because of it. I did not like the female main character at all. I understand she is a teen but she was very immature and they way she voiced her thoughts about how she should and shouldn't be treated by others really did not set well with me. I feel that ther

Say My Name is a difficult story to read. Taylor is a shallow 18 year old who has just dumped her cheating boyfriend and is spending the summer working for her older sister. She meets Isaiah and is immediately flustered by him. They strike up a friendship of sorts, but it's not easy going for them. He has a huge secret that he isn't sharing, and Taylor is just trying to figure where she fits into life, and what she wants to do with her life. Her parents are difficult at best, and Taylor just doe ...more

Say My Name is the first New Adult Romance novel I've read. There's definitely lots of romance, and there are plenty of adult moments as far as sex and sexuality goes (as I was told to expect). There were some things the author could have explained better in people's background. I did read the book fast, which probably explains why I found that.

On the whole I felt the novel was a good introduction to N.A. There's never a dull moment as they say. With one or two exceptions, all the characters com

This book started out ok for me, but totally jumped the shark around the halfway point. I just felt unconnected to the characters, and I didn't understand the point of the Kimi plotline. It wasn't for me, but I can understand the appeal to other readers. ...more

I loved this book. It was easy to read and full of surprise. However, I found some parts a bit shallow. I mean, Taylor left when he needed her most. She kept herself untouched till then, but found it easy to start a relationship with Michael and even to fake pleasure. What was the point ? In the end, after the Kelly/Zaya episode, Isaiah gets away from her in order to manage his flashbacks. She should have been the first person to turn to, but he chose to be alone. Overall, I will definitely reco ...more

I had trouble with this book being 3rd person with a very unique storyline. I kept reading hoping to catch something that I could latch onto but I just kept reading.

This book was fun and heartbreaking to read at the same time. Some terrible things happen to young people. Families are complicated organisms and painful things happen to innocent people. At some points I wanted to put the book down - reading how people can do these things to each other really bothers me. But I'm glad I persevered and finished it. And the ending was out of the blue! Great first book from this author!

By day she is an explorer, traversing the inner landscapes of her psyche (where she finds the best writing material) as she embraces the human experience called life. Her profoundly enjoyable life includes ...more
