Things We Never Said- Samantha Young

The latest book in Samantha Young’s awesomely heartwarming The Hart’s Boardwalk series is now love! Don’t hesitate to run and get it!

ARC Review

Dahlia loves her life in Hartwell, Delaware. She’s spent a long time hiding from her past, and things have finally clicked together for her present. However, when she finds her beloved father, who has helped keep her secrets for years, needs her help, she drops everything to return home to her estranged family. There she runs into Michael Sullivan, her forbidden love and one of the main reasons she’s been in hiding. Can they overcome their tumultuous past to find happiness in their future?

Things We Never said is the 3rd full novel in the Hart’s Boardwalk series. I’ve loved every book so far, and this is no exception. There’s so much heart, drama, emotion, and redemption. It’s a cozy comfortable book that will make you feel warm inside.

My only issue, and the only reason I’m not giving it a full five stars, is that it drives me crazy when lovers are separated by easily surmountable issues. Pretty much the only reason these characters weren’t together is because of issues that exist only in Dahlia’s head. I understand guilt and how it screws with you, but geeeeeeeez. She was not responsible for what caused the heartache but she was responsible for how she behaved after.

Truthfully Michael was kind of ass to her, which would normally put me off a book, but I can’t entirely blame him for being angry and I have said worse things to my ex. If you’re sensitive to that sort of thing it might not be your favorite book.

However, I still enjoyed this very very much, it was a great read. It’s always nice to return to a series where you love the characters, and this time we even got to know more about Emery. I can’t wait for her story and to continue knowing and loving the residents of Hartwell! 4.5/5 stars

It’s the perfect place to hide from her family in Boston and the tragic events that led to their estrangement.

One of those ghosts happens to be her ex-boyfriend’s best friend, Michael Sullivan. The man she was never supposed to fall in love with.

Michael Sullivan has never forgotten Dahlia McGuire. Some might say he’s never gotten over her. For years he lived with the anger of her desertion and now newly divorced he’s finally ready to move on. That proves impossible when Dahlia returns to Boston and reawakens their explosive connection. Despite everything, Michael wants her back, but  Dahlia can’t seem to let go of the tangled emotions of the past. She flees home to Hartwell.

Determined to fight for their second chance, Michael follows Dahlia to Delaware, takes a job with the local police department, and does everything in his power to convince her they belong together.

However, when the unthinkable hits the quiet seaside town, Michael finds himself trying to unravel more than the mystery of Dahlia’s McGuire’s broken heart. It’s time for truths left unsaid to finally be spoken or Michael and Dahlia might find themselves torn apart forever…

Things We Never Said- Samantha Young COVER REVEAL

Look at how gorgeous the cover to Things We Never Said (Hart’s Boardwalk #3) is! It was designed by Hang Lee and I love how calm and beautiful it is. I’m excited to read ANYTHING by Samantha Young, and really can’t wait to return to Hartwell and learn more about Dahlia (and perhaps visit our old friends Jessica, Cooper, Bailey and Vaughn).

Releases May 7th 2019 across all platforms. 

Official Blurb:

Local metalsmith and gift shop owner, Dahlia McGuire, likes her quiet life in Hartwell, Delaware. It’s the perfect place to hide from her family and the tragic events that led to their estrangement. However, when her father, the person she loves most in the world, needs her Dahlia has no choice but to return to Boston to face her ghosts. One of those happens to be her ex-boyfriend’s best friend, Michael Sullivan. The man she was never
supposed to fall in love with.


Michael Sullivan has never forgotten Dahlia McGuire. Some might say he’s never gotten over her. For years he lived with the anger of her desertion, and now, newly-divorced, he’s finally ready to move on. That proves impossible when Dahlia returns to Boston and reawakens their explosive connection. Despite everything, Michael wants her back, but Dahlia can’t seem to let go of the tangled emotions of the past. When she flees home to
Hartwell, Michael follows, determined to do everything in his power to convince her they belong together.


However, when the unthinkable hits the quiet seaside town, Michael finds himself trying to unravel more than the mystery of Dahlia’s broken heart. It’s time for truths left unsaid to finally be spoken or Michael and Dahlia might find themselves torn apart forever…

Fight or Flight- Samantha Young

Samantha Young has consistently been one of my favorites since I first read On Dublin Street  6 years ago. It was the first time I realized romance could be more than paperbacks my mom would buy when I was a kid and I would sneak as I got older.  I’ve read the full On Dublin Street series multiple times as the series continued to roll out.  I love the way she combined angst, love, and Edinburgh. I love Scotland, and Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been, so I was curious if I would love her writing as much when my one of my favorite places wasn’t a main character.

Fight or Flight kicks off in Arizona, where Ava and Caleb first meet as Caleb steals the last first class ticket on their flight. They have several other less than stellar encounters throughout the airport, only to discover they are seated next to each other on the plane where their dislike of each other fully comes to head.  During a layover in Chicago they decide to give in the passion they feel for one night then go their separate ways, but happenstance bring them together again through a mutual friend.  Although they may not like each other personally, they do enjoy each other in bed so they agree to spend the nights together while Caleb is in town on a business trip. How long will they be able to continue the arrangement without their dislike turning into like?

I liked this book a lot, although Ava and Caleb both irritated me at times (Ava especially in the beginning and Caleb towards the end). Ava is a type A, everything in its place, doesn’t own jeans, Interior Designer. Caleb is an arrogant, bearded, tattooed, successful Scot. They both want to be in charge, and both are unwilling to fall in love and try a real relationship after being burned in the past. The sex is seriously steamy, and the B characters are well developed (hopefully a sequel with Harper and Jamie to come).  This was funnier than I generally expect the author’s books to be, although there is still plenty of angst as per usual.  I’m giving it 4 stars because the characters were both pretty unpalatable at times and it lessened the over all enjoyment. 4/5 Stars
