Ryan McCallister is ready to come home and put the heartbreak of his first love behind him. But when he returns after teaching abroad, the home he once knew isn’t quite ready for him. The woman Ryan once loved is living with his brother; his friends have moved on; and his new landlady, Eva Romero, seems determined not to like him.
But Ryan likes Eva. A lot.
It doesn’t matter that Eva has a six-year-old son and a troubled ex-husband; when Ryan’s with her, everything makes sense. Eva isn’t convinced she’s ready to take another chance on love, but Ryan’s determined to show her he’s worth the risk.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
tell me that you're mine is the final book in the tell me series, and finds ryan mcallister coming home after spending a year in japan, recovering from the events in book 1. being away from his brother has been good for him. even though it has put a strain on his relationship with jude, ryan needed the time away to become his own person. and coming back home isn't really an option now that jude and lizzie are living together. when he wrangles a studio apartment from eva romero, the last thing he expects is the zing of chemistry between them. she's a couple years older than him. and as a divorced, single mom she's not up for a fling. her life is complicated. falling into bed with her renter would only make it more complicated. but for the first time since her divorce, she wants to try. even though she can't help thinking that no matter what she and ryan have will only ever be temporary. she's older than him. she's got a six-year-old. her ex has a borderline personality disorder that she feels responsible about managing. she's carrying all this guilt about not sticking things out with her ex, that she keeps sabotaging what can happen with ryan. and the thing about ryan is that all he wants is for someone to choose him. he wants someone to love him. someone to put him first the way he keeps putting everyone else in his life first. he may not always understand where eva is coming from, but he tries. he's such a good guy. i really loved him as a character. i haven't actually read the earlier novels in the series, and i think it would be hard for me to read book 1 knowing he loses out on the girl, even though i love him with eva. **tell me that you're mine will publish on august 29, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/st. martin's press (swerve) in exchange for my honest review.
Favorite Quotes: Jude goes full cartoon villain when he gets upset—clenched jaw, steely eyes, the whole bit. For having three sisters, Brett is awfully scared of women. Or maybe it’s because of his sisters. It couldn’t have helped that he looked like a spotted scarecrow in high school, his acne visible even from afar. The strangest memory pops into my mind of Mom re-buttoning my shirts because she always missed a hole. It takes my breath away for a second. Grief often hits me at weird times in random moments—more so now than when I was young. Maybe because as I get older I understand the enormity of what I lost. When a parent dies, you keep losing them over and over throughout your life. Our father became a mythical figure, his name never spoken but the idea of him always menacing—like Voldemort or the boogeyman. My Review: Although I did not read the first book in this series and didn’t need to, I’d like to go back and see the origins of this story. However, this book had strong legs and was quite capable of standing alone. The storyline was current, relevant, realistic, relatable, and written from my favorite dual POV. The angst was well balanced by welcome hits of humor and snappy banter. I adored the sweet and tender character of Ryan, he squeezed my heart and I was devastated for him each time his ego took a hit. Ms. De La O has an insightful and observant writing style that is easy to follow yet also emotive and engaging. I hope to soon be reading her work again.
I was so excited to see this book coming out and happily the author did not disappoint with Ryan's story! I loved this book so much. After the heartbreak Ryan went through in the prior books (although this is the third in the series the author gives enough of the backstory for you to enjoy without reading the prior 2) I wanted him to find his own HEA. He definitely does and this is his story. Of course nothing comes easy but Ryan and Eva find their way in the wonderful story. This book is very well written and you'll fall in love with these characters. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
