Can love heal all wounds?

At seventeen, Tyler Bruce is hot -- a hot mess. His girlfriend is a knockout, his reputation's untouchable, parties are nothing without him. Even his car is unreal. But inside Tyler is broken -- and he'll stop at nothing to keep that a secret.

Then one summer Eden comes to stay. She's upfront, sharp and far more enticing than a stepsister should be.

I was on the promotional blog tour for this book!

I was very excited to receive this novel for review, the signed copy looks great next to my contemporary books on my YA shelf! I started reading the original trilogy on Wattpad many years ago and was delighted when it got published. Tyler’s story flips back to five years in his past and the present day and I got to know lots more about him. He starts relying on distractions and won’t open up to his stepsister Eden about his

I got sent this book in exchange for a honest review, all my opinions are my own and thank you so much to the publishers for sending me this book!

So if you have been friends with me for awhile, you know I love The DIMILY series, I think it's so fun and enjoyable. In this book, the story is much darker and a lot more serious.

If you don't know the original trilogy, we follow Eden as she spends the summer with her father and his new wife. Eden's new stepbrother Tyler is the guy your parents tell

JDMI was an absolute tear-jerker. Not only did it have character, but, it also had heart. The number of emotions I felt while reading this was uncanny. It's an interesting read and is the perfect book for a fan of DIMILY. Hearing Tyler tell his own story and how each chapter was split from past and present was a very unique move. I recommend this book to anyone who has read DIMILY. It's a great read!

So I just got this in the mail and I ended up staying up all night reading it. I couldn’t put it down. 5 stars definitely!
So this book did something I didn’t think was possible. It made me fall in love with Tyler even more. Every chapter that had him as a kid just broke my heart so much and it had me screaming to every adult “How do you not know? Are you blind? He’s so obviously in pain." Not that I blame Ella or anything. It just hurt my heart. I loved seeing Eden from Tyler’s POV. I’m just in

I feel like crying right now. Tyler’s story was so heartbreaking
I think that Estelle Maskame did a great job at describing the pain and all the emotions that Tyler went through, and because of that I think that this is her best book so far.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is my first venture into Estelle's book series, and I'm so glad I finally got around to picking one of them up. I felt so many things over the course of this book, happiness, sadness, heartbreak and love. Despite Tyler's bad boy persona at the start of the book the more I found out about him the more I fell in love with him. Estelle has created such a deep, wonderful character, and I think this book must add so much onto the

The DIMILY series holds a special place in my heart, mainly because Estelle started where I started. Two years after finishing the series, I was a bit fuzzy on the events that happened in the first book, but Estelle makes it easy for readers to navigate through the sequences of the book without getting confused.
I really, really loved this book. Not sure if this is an unpopular opinion, but I loved this book more than the other books narrated in Eden's point of view. There was something so

I absolutely loved this book. While reading The DIMILY Series Book 1, I hated Tyler. He was rude, inconsiderate, and extremely moody. Reading Book 4 gave me insight on his life prior to Eden and made me understand him and why he acted the way he did. Although The DIMILY Series follows the life of Eden Munro, Tyler is the main character in my eyes. He had awesome character development.
P.S: I wish Estelle did “Tyler’s Story” for every book that is in Eden’s perspective. I definitely would have

Just Don't Mention Itis part of theDid I Mention... series by Estelle. I haven't gotten around to reading theDIMILYbooks yet, so I'm coming at the series all backwards, which is not that unusual for me! You absolutely can read this book as a standalone though, and it didn't diminish my enjoyment at all that I hadn't read the others.

Just Don't Mention Itis Tyler's story, told from his point of view; part of it is set in the present day and part five years ago, and the chapters alternate between

I would definitely recommend reading the trilogy first, which is well worth reading. I felt connected to Tyler instantly as I had some background information about him from the trilogy and I was more invested into his story.

Just Don't Mention It or JDMI to keep things short is written all in Tyler's perspective. Tyler suffered horrific physical abuse from his father as a child, so this novel explains the abuse alongside revealing the long term emotional and mental issues it has left Tyler.

Who is surprised I gave this five stars?? NOT ME.

You know what I AM surprised about?? Just how much I loved this. I mean, I expected to love it but I wasn't expecting it to become my favourite book of the year. I'm way too tired right now to formulate a decent review but basically if you only take one recommendation from me - MAKE IT THIS ONE!!

PSA: Read the acknowledgments ;)
OMG .. I loved reading this book I loved knowing the story of the Tyler .. and I prefer it to the "original" book!!
I was with a kind of reading slump and I knew I needed a book like this .. and now I want to know the continuation of the story of the Tyler!
This book is not any work of literature, but it is a very cute book and that reads very fast .. it's a book that lets us addicted! And I knew I needed that !!

OMG.. j'ai adoré lire ce livre j'ai adoré savoir l'histoire du Tyler .. et je
I received this free eARC novel from Edelweiss. This is my honest review.

This book broke my heart. Because I read the previous books in the series, I sort of skimmed the present day sections since it was basically a repeat of book #1, but the 5 years ago sections? Oh man, I was almost in tears to be honest. Poor Tyler and what he had to go through. I can't even imagine a parent doing that to their child, but I do know it happens in real life. And to see and read about Tyler's feelings toward

I'm so happy that Estelle Maskame wrote the 4th DIMILY book in Tyler's POV. When I first read the 1st book I honestly hated Tyler and never understood what Eden saw in him. But as I read the other three books, I began to understand Tyler and why he was the way he was. "Just Don't Mention It" was a well written book that gave the back story in Tyler Bruce's life in a really emotional way.

I LOVE IT. I love the entire series and it just breaks my heart that it's the last book. I'm still hoping for another book. I would definitely recommend this book, but first read the whole series or just the first book. It's great to read the background of Tyler and see him become stronger.

DNF. This is so bad. The writing is terrible and feels like an awkwardly-written first attempt by a 14-year-old, and I found several grammatical errors within the first few pages. I don't know how this is published and this does a disservice to writers who start on Wattpad.

Read the whole book in one day, in two sittings (I only stopped to eat lunch) I adored this book and being able to read Tyler’s story was amazing. I’m part of the blog tour on 23rd June so check my blog for that (the post includes my full review)

This book was good...
A little boring but good!
I did like the flashbacks tough they were sad and made me cry they were also really good to understand Tyler better!
My favourite in the series ! My heart was breaking for young Tyler ...

« I wish I was the Tyler I pretend to be. That guy doesn't care. That guy is cool. That guy has the hot girlfriend, the nice car, the biggest group of friends. That guy is happy. But what people don't know is that the hot girlfriend doesn't care about him. The nice car left him with an empty trust fund. The big group of friends are all fake.
And all that is left is me, the pathetic Tyler. The Tyler who doesn't know who he really is, the Tyler who hates disappointing his mom, the Tyler who cares

I really enjoyed this book. I think i have an interesting take on it because i haven't read the DIMLY series and this is my first experience of the characters and events.

I loved the writing style. It was a balanced mix of flowery and straight to the point that was very fitting for the character.

I really liked Tyler as an MC, he had a great backstory that was tough to

4.5 stars!

I read the first three books in this trilogy straight after each other at the end of May/beginning of June and loved the first three books a lot, so I was really excited to read this book! I knew that this book was going to be written from the male character's point of view, so this made me even more excited for it! I then signed up for the Blog Tour with the publisher, so received an early review copy! After reading this book, I can say that I enjoyed it just as much as the other

This is a follow up book to the bestselling ‘Just Don’t Mention It’ trilogy and focuses on Tyler Bruce, who is a character from the series.
Tyler is one of the cool kids. He is rather ‘hot’ (and I don’t mean that he is overheating), he is popular, he has a lot of success with the young women of the area, he drives a lovely car and he is a party animal. This book just goes to show that appearances can be deceptive because underneath his cool exterior, he is one jumbled up, complicated and

While the DIMILY Series will already send your heart for a toss, be it Did I Mention I Love You? to Did I Mention I Miss You? every book by Estelle Maskame will make you believe in the power of true love, in the power of how love can complete the life of an otherwise wrecked person and it'll make you believe in the hope of forbidden relationships but this is not about the DIMILY Series, this is about what goes beyond.

Estelle Maskame writes realistically and beautifully - I have found it extremely easy to get lost in her previous books. I always wonder before I read later books in a series if I won't be as enthralled in the author’s writing as I was in the first book. However, Just Don't Mention It definitely lived up to my expectations; Maskames' writing is just as gorgeous and engaging as it was in the first book, Did I Mention I Love You. I had gotten into a reading slump whilst revising for and sitting my ...more

This book is told from Tyler's perspective from his past self at the time of the first book.

Told between the past, five years ago and present day, we learn of how Tyler was treated by his abusive father in graphic accounts and how it caused Tyler's behaviour to change from happy to angry as well as his memories about his father, we see how he met Tiffani and Dean and him attending games together to watch and how well his father and him managed to hide everything as their family let alone anyone

I read this entire book in four hours. I was up until 1:30am and it was worth it. I new going in that this book would deal with Tyler’s past, but I didn’t expect it to explain so much of his backstory. I didn’t know that every other chapter we’d be back to this painful and horrible part of his life. In each of the five years earlier chapters my heart hurt that this little boy that I’ve come to love throughout the series had to go through this. I hated reading that part but I needed to because it ...more

I knew that I was going to love this book yet it still somehow managed to exceed my expectations??

My heart absolutely ached for Tyler the whole way through. I loved the alternating chapters between present time and Tyler's childhood with the issues surrounding his dad. It helped to shed light on why Tyler acts the way he does in dimily whilst also tugging on your heart strings. Honestly, the whole time reading it I just wanted to reach into the book and hug him. (Can I also just add I adored the
When I went into this, I was expecting it to be about Tyler's life before he met Eden and it was, to some extent, but not enough, in my opinion. The book follows 12-year-old Tyler, before his dad is arrested, and 17-year-old Tyler when he first meets Eden, so basically the plot of DIMILY but from Tyler's POV.

The dual-timeline was my main issue with the book. I loved the chapters when Tyler was younger, even though they broke my heart, but I found the chapters from 17-year-old Tyler's
