Just Don't Mention It (The DIMILY Series)

Estelle Maskame is one of my favourite authors, I can't get enough of her writing and I have now read every single one of her books so far. I adored the DIMILY series so when I heard about Just Don't Mention It, I freaked out with excitement! I'm so happy to be taking part in the blog tour today and to give you my spoiler-free review!
Just Don't Mention It (The DIMILY Series)
This has been my most anticipated read of 2018 and it lived up to all of my expectations! Just Don't Mention alternates between the past and present, as told from Tyler's perspective. This book is Did I Mention I Love You, retold by Tyler and we get a peek into his past as well. You see Tyler as the 12-year-old boy suffering physical abuse at the hands of his dad as well as seeing him as the bad boy 17-year-old who falls in love with his stepsister Eden. 

Whether you have read DIMILY before or not, you need to read this book. As someone who has read the DIMILY series multiple times, I loved this book from cover to cover and had trouble putting it down! Every other chapter flips between past and present and I found it really easy to follow. Some of the chapters from the past killed me, my heart literally ached. One chapter, in particular, brought me to tears! It broke my heart reading those chapters with his dad and it was worse than what I had thought it to be from reading the DIMILY series. 
Even though I knew the story from the present chapters of the book, I loved reading it from Tyler's perspective and seeing what he was getting up to while wasn't with Eden. It answered all of my questions and filled in the gaps that I had from when I read DIMILY. I loved finding out when Tyler realised he was in love with Eden and it actually takes place during one of my favourite scenes from DIMILY so it just made me love it even more. 

The character I have hated from the whole series is Tiffani and this book just made me hate her even more! It was so interesting to learn more about his relationships with the characters throughout the book and I love how much he loves his mum. Eden's dad annoyed me even more in this book, he just basically ignores Tyler's existence until he wants to moan or have a go at him. But my love for Tyler grew even more and more.

Estelle's writing style is one of my favourites and I love how easy it is to read her books, I flew through it within 24 hours! But by no means is this book easy to read (specifically the past chapters). If I had to give this book a rating, it would be at least five stars and I'm so sad that the DIMILY series is officially finished.
