BLOG TOUR Say Something by T.A. Roth

What most girls search a lifetime for…
I felt it the minute he set those whiskey colored eyes on me.
We had it in spades…
My body was drawn to hers the moment she set foot into the room.
What happens when you both have pasts that threaten the future?
Do you do nothing?
Do you Say Something?



Twenty–two-year-old Ari Munoz prefers to keep men at an arms’ length.  So when her best friend Vonne guilts her into going to a frat party, she couldn't think of a worse way to spend her night.  That's until she sparks the interest of love’em and leave’em Ben Rodriguez. She knows she shouldn’t trust him, but the electricity she feels when they lock eyes is something she's never felt before.

Twenty-two-year-old Ben Rodriguez has it all, and his senior year marks the beginning of even bigger things to come.  He's a football star, fraternity president, and his endless pick of beauties makes him the envy of all of his frat brothers.  So why is a pair of long legs and hazel eyes making him want to throw out his rules?
Ari has her secrets.
Ben has his rules.

What happens when both your pasts threaten your future?
Say Something...

To say I'm picky about the New Adult genre is an understatement and half the time when I pick one to read I hate them but the other half are shining stars. Say Something is one of those shining stars.
I didn't know what to think starting this book mainly because I knew it was going to end in a cliffhanger and I generally don't like cliffhangers with a few exception; this is going to be one of those exception.

The characters are complex, delightfully complex and well written (I'm going to be a smart ass here and say I would hope so because it is the whole of the story) An instant attraction changes everything for two people. Ari has a secret she has never told anyone the kind of secret that gives her nightmares   so bad she wakes up screaming. Ben avoid commitment like the plague and being on the college football team and the president of his fraternity it's not hard to find a new bed mate every night. But the moment they saw each other they knew it was something special.

It is a highly excitable book a few times I had to stop and take a deep breath the things that boy does to her, wooo. Now, the conflict again is not one of my favorites, vindictive ex ( who's not technically an ex but it's just easier to refer to her as such) out to sabotage, but was done well it's not a constant thing it's sporadic throughout the book and they easily overcome her childish meddling. The introduction of Ari own ex-boyfriend is short but hints to more to come in the next books. Ari finally confides in Ben her dark secret and Ben struggles with his grandmother's deteriorating health. All leading to a big fat cliffhanger...

The only problem I had with the book, besides the cliffhanger, was the flip flopping of POVs. First person POV between Ari and Ben and even occasionally the evil ex. It wasn't confusing it was all clearly marked but it happened so often in some chapters it made me think why not just write it in third person.
