There are scenes in this book that literally took my breath away and I can tell you that every single one had Michael Sullivan smack in the center. Sometimes his words, spoken in the throes of despair, are an unexpected punch to the gut. But other times, his declarations and his admissions are some of the most romantic lines I've ever read. This is a story of impossibility and complicated longing and it's beautiful and frustrating and angsty and I loved it.
The Hart's Boardwalk series has been a bit bumpy for me as a reader but this book in particular is now a personal favorite. I enjoyed every bit of it and I honestly hope Samantha Young has more planned. Things We Never Said is so many things, a story of second chances, third chances, so many chances over the course of a decade, a romance ebbing and flowing until the pieces finally click at just the right time. It's painful and so sexy and so so good.
I LOVED every single WORD! 🤯🤯🤯🤩🤩🤩🤩 I love the relationship she has with Bailey and her dad! I love that Emery is slowly coming out of her shell, I love that Jess is PREGGERS yassssss, I love that she reconciled with her fam, I loved the ending! I FLIPPIN LOVED EVERYTHING! I can’t take this smile off my face!
I can’t wait to find out more about Ivy, Jack, Jeff, Cat and the restaurant owner. I wonder about Rebecca and why she is wants to confess now and I can’t wait for BAILEY AND VAUGHN’S WEDDING!! (Seriously I can’t lol wink wink cough cough Sam) This series GIVES ME LIFE!
I loved the majority of this book. There was one ongoing issue that drove me crazy, but I’ll get to that in a bit.
Michael and Dahlia’s story is a second chance romance, primarily. It could fit into several other tropes as well; friends to lovers, enemies to lovers, forbidden romance, love at first sight.
This book had so many emotions. It was heartbreaking what Dahlia is living with, I was in tears by the third chapter. That doesn’t happen to me often.
Michael and Dahlia meet at an art gallery. She is in a relationship, but that doesn’t stop them from a little flirting, some suggestive conversation. Unbeknownst to both of them they have a common acquaintance. Dahlias boyfriend, is Michaels best friend. Awkward.
These two, it would seem are each other’s “other half”. But the fates seem to be against them. Keeping them apart. Until the unthinkable happens sending Dahlia into a deep depression and fleeing Boston. She finds her safe haven in Hartwell, Delaware.
When her father calls with family news, it sends Dahlia back home to face her family and her demons for the first time in nine years. To say it’s not a happy return trip would be an understatement.
I loved Michael. He was, at times a bit of a dillhole, but he soon comes around. He was so angry with her ghosting not only her family but him, it took awhile for him to come around. But through it all he never stopped loving her. He was so patient. Upending his whole life to show her what she meant to him.
I loved Dahlias family, well, most of them. They were a large, loving, working class, Irish American family. Quick to love and quick to forgive her for leaving them.
I loved catching up with the past couples, Cooper and Jess, Vaughn and Bailey. Plus the other core characters, along with meeting some new ones.
The one issue I had was Dahlia. On the surface she’s a strong, opinionated, snarky, funny, self assured business owner. But her past has taken deep root into her mind and made her into a woman who has to be the one to fall on her sword for every one. Be the martyr. Take the blame for everything that has happened in her family and with Michael. Never allowing herself to experience even a little bit of happiness. I got so tired of her internal dialogue. So much angst, so much back and forth, push and pull. Through almost 80% of the book. It’s not until her friends hold a reality check intervention does she pull her head out of her backside and decide to move forward and be happy. I found myself skipping through a lot of those scenes.
That being said, I did like the book. Love the series. I love this little seaside town the author has created. The book is well written and while Michael and Dahlia do have a tremendous uphill battle, they do finally find their happy ending.
I’m anxious to see where we go next with these characters.
This book was exactly what I was hoping for and more. We got a great love story between Dahlia and Michael. The friendships between the people of Hartwell is one of my favorite parts of the series. I love that the women meet up all the time and I love how close Bailey and Dahlia are.
This book also continued the mystery behind the dastardly Devlin clan. I need to know what they are up to and I need more information about Jack Devlin. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
Things We Never Said hooked me from the start. I devoured it. I felt all the feels. It took a different turn in the second half than what I was expecting. I still enjoyed the story. I think Samantha set things in motion for books to come. I am so looking forward to more.
