About The Taste of Her Words:
Andrea was my first taste of love.
She was there throughout my childhood and into adulthood. Her words were a secret I wasn’t supposed to know. Truths and pain bled onto papers that shredded my innocence and carved a hole in my heart only she could fill.
Her words were my first kiss. They were the uneven breaths I took when I saw her, and my hands between her thighs inside the dreams she haunted. She was my best friend’s older sister and, even though she didn’t know it yet, she was the pen that would ink our destiny into the stars.
Dean tempted me to cross a line I never thought I would.
It had been so long since someone looked at me the way he did. Five years since his starry gaze caressed my words and I ran from a kiss I couldn’t shake. He was everything I should stay away from, but how could I resist the beautifully broken man whose touch stoked a fire within my soul?
Dean was the missing words to my fairy tale. The parchment I could safely put my most intimate thoughts to. But when secrets from the past catch up with us, how could our perfectly plotted ending survive?
“Time is but a measure I can map my love for you with. Love happened quickly and swiftly, like the first breath of air, bringing us to life. My heart was hers before I even knew how to give it away, and now she’d finally handed me hers in return.”
The Taste of Her Words was a truly special and beautiful book. Every once in a while I will come across a book that speaks to my soul…that is beautiful in every way…that leaves a lasting impression. The Taste of Her Words was one of those books. It was a beautiful, raw and poetic. The Taste of Her Words is at it’s core a second chance romance, but oh my it was SO much more. Andrea and Dean’s story is absolutely beautiful. Dean is the best friend of Andrea’s younger brother, younger than her by quite a few years, but he has always had feelings for her. Andrea, try as she might, has tried to ignore her feelings for Dean. They shared 1 kiss a night 5 years ago, but neither one can forget it’s lasting impression.
“Dean was like the perfect sunset. A brief whirlwind of colors as fleeting as every passing minute. He could never truly be mine. Not while my past nipped at my heels.”
We are gifted in this book with two MCs that so absolutely strong. Andrea, a single mom just trying to make ends meet, while her son’s father is mentally unstable and abusive. She is also struggling with the fact that she dropped out of college and gave up pursuing her dreams of writing, in order to raise her son. Dean on the other hand is the “black sheep” of his family. He got into trouble as a teenager in order to save a girls life…not that anyone knows the true story. And has had to deal with the backlash of this his whole adult life.
“I found you in between heart beats, inside a caught breath, hiding behind a cage of bone. Dance with me, you said. Find our rhythm home.”
This is the first book I have read I have read by Candace Knoebel, and it will not be the last. Knoebel’s writing was a masterpiece. The two MCs bonded over a love of words, and Knoebel used that love to draw us into the story even more. She used poetry and her affinity for words to bring to life a beautiful, tragic, memorable story. I didn’t manage to make it more than a couple pages without stopping to highlight!! And that says something, I’m not really a big notes taker when it comes to reading!
The Taste of Her Words has been one of my favorite reads of 2017 so far. I would highly recommend this book to, well, everyone! If you are sucker for romance in any capacity this book needs to be on your TBR.
Overall Rating: 5/5 BEAUTIFUL stars
