Love is everything but expected.
Eden Munro came to California for a summer of sun, sand, and celebrities—what better way to forget about the drama back home? Until she meets her new family of strangers: a dad she hasn’t seen in three years, a stepmom, and three stepbrothers.
Eden gets her own room in her dad’s fancy house in Santa Monica. A room right next door to her oldest stepbrother, Tyler Bruce. Whom she cannot stand. He has angry green eyes and an ego bigger than a Beverly Hills mansion. She’s never felt such intense dislike for someone. But the two are constantly thrown together as his group of friends pulls her into their world of rule-breaking, partying, and pier-hanging.
And the more she tries to understand what makes Tyler burn hotter than the California sun, the more Eden finds herself falling for the one person she shouldn’t love…

Did I Mention I Love You? follows a girl named Eden who goes to California for her summer break to go and visit with her dad. Her parents are divorced, so her father lives in a different state. He actually got remarried and is now living with his new wife and her three kids, so Eden has to live with all of them. She’s thrown into quite the whirlwind after finding out that one of the brothers is someone she can’t help but hate: Tyler.

around the back yard, and as a sleek white car speeds up to the edge of
the sidewalk and skids against the curb, I grimace in disgust. The music
cuts off the second the engine is killed.

fence, but a tall guy gets out and slams the door shut just as
aggressively as he opened it. He hesitates for a moment, stares at the
house, and then runs a hand through his hair. Whoever he is, he looks
su-per depressed. Like he’s just lost all his life savings or his dog
just died. And then he heads straight for the gate.

It’s like he wants everyone to hate him. I figure he’s probably that one
neighbor that everyone despises, and he’s only here in a fit of rage
because he wasn’t invited to the lamest barbecue get-together that’s
ever been hosted.

finger to, from what I can see, the barbecue. “I hope you guys enjoyed
the cow you just ate.” And then he laughs. He laughs as though
everyone’s expressions of disgust are the most entertaining thing he’s
seen all year.

doors. He slams them shut so hard I can almost see the glass tremble.
