It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
The dumbest thing I've ever done.
I loved her. I lost her. Hell, I let her go. And then spent five miserable years without her. To cope with the loss, I put pen to paper and wrote her a love story, knowing when she was ready she'd hear the words I couldn't say all those years ago.
Turned out, not only would she hear them, but when Hollywood came calling, I made sure she got the lead role. After all, no one else could portray the character whom she'd inspired.
Now she's within arms' reach and finally, she'll know the truth in my heart.
Because that other cliché, "Actions speak louder than words?"
I'm going to prove it.
My words may have brought Ava Banks back into my life; I have to be enough to make her stay.

I love Tessa Teevan and her books so I was quite happy when I got the chance to read and review Words I Couldn't Say. And I wasn't disappointed. I've been in a book rut lately, reading books that were ok or good but not great. And I was really hoping that Tessa Teevan will take me out of the funk with an incredible story. And she delivered as always. She caught me from the very first sentence and nearly made me cry even though I was in public (that doesn't happen to me very often) and by the end of the prologue my head was spinning from the unexpected twist. Though I probably should've expected that if I was more careful in reading the synopsis :D In it's basics this is a second chance romance. But it is so different than everything else I've read on the same topic. It is heartbreaking and at the same time so very romantic. The beginning of the book was a little bit too melodramatic for my tastes but considering it was retelling of the characters' story during their teenage years, it was kind of understandable. And I would assume that everyone who goes through such a tragedy will be at least a little bit unreasonable. Though, I didn't specifically agree or like Ava from those flashbacks, in a way I did understand her. Though I still think she could've handled the situation differently. Though that probably comes with experience. I did love Tucker though. For one thing, with his dark hair and baby blues, he is definitely a heart-throb. I only need to imagine him repairing something shirtless and with his toolbelt haning low on his hips, and I start drooling :D But he is also strong, responsible, romantic and pretty much everything else you can think of, that can make him the perfect boyfriend and man. And what he did, to show his love for Ava is definitely swoon worthy ;) So, in a few words, this is an incredible second chance story that you should definitely check out. It is heartbreaking and sweet and so romantic :) And if nothing else, you should check it out because of Tucker :D So get your #oneclick finger ready and pick up your copy ;) This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.
