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.

A beautiful novel about a girl who finds her true love in her 
brother’s best friend.

Kaylee Ryan gave us a powerful romance novel that’ll make you go “Aww and Ohhhh” on several occasions. Bonus points for keeping the drama levels down and giving us an old fashioned romance story! 


Somehow Ava Mae and Nate have always “clicked”, it’s like 
destiny was trying to tell them something all along.

But then life happened and they grew apart. 

Fast forward a few years... 

A chance event throws these two star-crossed lovers back together. This time nobody can stop the chemistry that has only been growing all this time. Or is it?

One person has to be dealt with before they can truly be together
 once and for all but it’ll take a very long game of hide and seek 
and a sudden appearance before it all comes to a sudden “bang”. 

The time that they spend together is so darn cute and tastefully 
steamy, all at the right times.

What about birthday week?! Swoonworthy right? Nate is THE 
perfect boyfriend and a necessary add to your favorite boyfriends

Some beautiful examples on how beautifully written this story is 
and how Nate and Ava’s story is a must read:

“Ava Mae,
I hope this will help feed your addiction one story at a time. Just sure 
you remember you have the real thing.

Xoxo Nate”

--->>> Hello?! Can he be more perfect? A boyfriend who 
not only feeds you real life addiction but your reading addiction as well... Bring him to me, please! ;-) 

“I learned that my love for you is infinite. I learned that you will 
forever be the perfect beginning and the perfect ending to my day.” - Nate

--->>> *Snif snif* Amazing sentence and a favorite quote of mine. 

“Just say when, baby. Just say when.” - Nate 

--->>> Aha! This is where the title really kicks in.... Where 
you may ask? A lady doesn’t kiss and tell. ;-)
 But when the moment arrives you’ll be thinking, oh yeah!

Three reasons why you just MUST read this novel:

1. The guy’s name is “Nate”, that alone guarantees an instant success story for me, the name has never let me down! Somehow it’s my kryptonite.

2. Romance without all the drama that’s usually thrown in and steamy but tastefully incorporated without it being too much. 

3. For this, I refer to the previously mentioned quotes. Those alone should be reasons enough! 

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.

Kaylee Ryan has had a passion for reading since she was a little girl. That passion has slowly led to spinning romantic tales, and a one-click addiction. When she doesn’t have her nose stuck in her kindle or fingers glued to the keyboard, you can find Kaylee hanging out with friends and family. She loves all genres of music, and enjoys scrapbooking. She lives in Ohio with her husband (her real life happily ever after) and their rambunctious little boy.
