Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Taste of Her Words by Candace Knoebel!

Publication date: 13th July 2017
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: 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?

I was really excited to read this book! I've read all this author's other books and loved them, so I couldn't wait to read more from her! I also read the first few chapters of this book when the author released them, and it left me desperate to read more! I was then very, very excited when I received an ARC that I made it my next read! I freaking loved this book! It actually took me a few hours to process it before I sat down to write this review! The plot intrigued me right from the beginning and it really drew me in! I also loved the poetry aspect of this book, and even though I don't normally understand poetry lol, it was very beautiful and it added something special! There were some seriously hot scenes in this book too, and I wasn't expecting them to be so steamy lol! The plot also didn't have a lot of action or suspense in it until the last maybe 15%, but there was a lot in the scenes that had action and suspense in them! This book also dealt with something that a lot of other women have dealt with or are currently dealing with and it was a very real situation! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Andrea 'Andy' was the main female character, and in this book Andy was dealing with a lot! I'm trying really hard to not post any spoilers or give too much away, but my heart went out to Andy because all she wanted was to give her family the best and provide for one little guy in particular! I loved Andy! She was very easy for me to connect with and everything she did was for her family! I also loved Andy with her love interest! She did become more confident when she was with him and he helped her let go and supported her! Dean was the main male character and love interest of Andy! I loved Dean a lot in this book! All he wanted was to be with Andy and help her to realise that they were made for each other! I also admired Dean a lot because he gave Andy space and he waited until she was ready to start something! Dean was also such a nice, everyday guy and I loved the way he encouraged Andy! He encouraged her love of words and he tried his best to be there for her! Dean was also very protective of Andy and it was easy to see the amount of love he had for her! I was hoping that this book was going to be written from both Andy and Dean's point of views, but I wasn't sure if it was going to be! I was really happy that it was because it helped me connect more with both characters and it also allowed me to understand how they really felt about each other! I can also completely understand why this book is a standalone! Everything was wrapped up and all the questions were answered! The ending was also left at the perfect place and was very beautiful! I really hope that this author releases more contemporary books! I'm not sure what her next release is going to be, but I've loved both her contemporary and paranormal books, so I'm definitely going to be reading it regardless of its genre! The cover for this book is stunning! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and it suits the book perfectly! Big thank you to Candace for an ARC of The Taste of Her Words and to Inkslinger PR for having me on the Blog Tour!
