*** Release Day Blitz & Review *** Just Say When by Kaylee Ryan

Title: Just Say When
Author: Kaylee Ryan
 Release Date: May 12, 2015


Saving myself for marriage, not hardly. 

Saving myself for someone who will make my heart race, most definitely. 

In theory it's a good plan, however even the best-laid plans fall through. Seeing him, being around him, alerts all my senses and I dream about being his, wrapping myself in his arms and never letting go. The only problem – he sees me as his sister. 

My name's Ava Evans and I'm in love with my older brother's best friend, Nate Garrison. 


Burying myself in work for the past two years, avoiding any thought of her, has worked, until now. She's everywhere, in my dreams, in my gym, and in my heart. I'm not sure when I fell in love with Ava Evans, but I am completely in love with my best friends baby sister. 

At first she was too young for me and that made it easy to stay away. Now, it's a struggle to keep my distance. 

How am I supposed to resist her when I can’t escape her? If he ever found out, it would ruin our friendship. Even with that knowledge all she would have to do is... 

Just Say When.

My Review

If your a fan of friends to lover's stories than this book is for you.

If your are a fan of falling in love with my brother's best friend stories then this is a must read for you.

Just Say When is a super sweet read that left me with a huge smile on my face as I read it.
The characters were wonderfully likable and I loved seeing them develop.

I really enjoyed getting to watch Ava and Nate come together moving from friends and to lover's over the span of the book.

But aside from the sweet romance, which I loved, there was just something missing for me this time around.

Now, I'm a huge Kaylee Ryan fan and it kills me to say this but Nate just wasn't enough of an alpha for me, he was way to smitten and way to mushy and over the top for.  I know that they were friends forever and that plays a huge factor, but I would have liked a bit more of a chase after being apart for two years as well. Things just seemed to fall into place a bit too easily.

With that being said it was still such a a great story that totally consumed me as I read. I loved Ava's relationship with her friends, family and best of all Nate. I especially loved how she was willing to choose Nate if push came to shove. Not being willing to give him up despite her brother Brody's opinion. Nate was a total sweetheart  who was just so smitten and consumed with Ava that you can't help but love how darn sweet the guy is, even if he's a bit over the top in love.
Simply put Nate and Ava's story is beautiful and will leave you seeing rainbows and butterflies all the while grinning from how sweet it is.

★★☆ 3.5 Stars ☆★★

I reach the table just in time to watch as Kara pulls Ava to the dance floor. They stop right at the edge as if they cannot wait a second longer to move to the beat. We watch them in silence, enjoying the show they’re putting on. That is until two guys join them. At first, it looks innocent enough, but when the one closest to Ava puts his hands on her, I know I have to squash this. 

“We can’t let them have all the fun.” I motion to the dance floor. I’m pissed off this guy is mauling her, and I’m pissed off at Zach. I can’t believe he let his groupies pull him away from Ava. He doesn’t deserve her. 

Tanner grins. “You don’t have to tell me twice.” He places his now empty water bottle on the table and heads straight for Kara. 

I’m hot on his heels. I stop in front of Ava and she smiles hesitantly just as the song changes to “Talk Dirty.” The guy who was trying to make his move on her is no longer touching her, which is in his best interest. Ava seems nervous as to where she should touch me. This is new for us. I take her hands and rest them on my shoulders as I move my hips to the beat. I keep an eye on the jackass to make sure he knows she’s unavailable. I don’t want him touching her again. 

I pull her tight little body close to mine, not caring that this is Ava Mae, my best friend’s little sister. She’s forbidden, but for tonight, for this time in which I actually have her in my arms, I don’t let it stop me. Instead, I pull her close and pretend she’s mine. Ava rocks her hips against mine and I tighten my grip. Her big brown eyes find mine and her stare is intense. If I didn’t know better, I would think that she wants me just as fiercely as I want her. Pulling her as close as I can get her, I bury my face in her neck and match the rhythm of her hips as they grind against mine. I wish like hell she were mine.
