He's the sexiest man I've ever seen.
He strong, confident, and loyal.
He's everything to me,
And I'd rather die than lose him,
Which is why Flynn Buchanan is my best friend.

But lately, things have changed.
We changed.
I can feel the shift--the difference.
I'm starting to wonder...
What if I told him that what I need,
What I want,
Is him?

She's the sexiest woman I've ever known.
She's fiery, smart, and has my back.
She's been there for me through it all.
I can't imagine a second of my life without her,
Which is why Brooklyn Ames is my best friend.
The only woman I want,
And the only one I can't have.
But lately…
I'm starting to wonder...
What if I told her that all I want,
All I desire,
Is her?

NA ReviewMy Thoughts

Jennifer Domenico never lets me down! This makes 2 out of 2 books of hers that I have read and ABSOLUTELY LOVED. I was just telling someone the other day that I was itching for a 5 star read, after having a lot of 3 and 3.5 star reads lately, and my wish has been granted. If I Told You is a  new adult contemporary romance by Jennifer Domenico, and it is breathtakingly awesome.

It is told in dual narrative between Brooklyn and Flynn, which I loved. Jennifer’s last book that I read, Chasing Desire (review here) was split in half, so the first half was from one characters point of view and the second half was from another’. I liked this way better because I get impatient when I want to switch over to the guys POV. This way I got to get into Flynn’s head sooner.

I love a good friends to lovers storyline and the food critic just spiced things up even more. I was so interested to see which direction that Jennifer Domenico was going to take the story in, because with the way she set it up initial, there are so many different possibilities that it could have gone with. i loved that I didn’t exactly know where the story was going from the start (though I did get a much better idea as it went on.) but all the way I was in love with the characters, their friendship and their tension between them. It is so obvious that they liked each other, but they loved their friendship so much. I really respected that about Brooklyn and Flynn. They are really great friends first.

I loved this romance so so much. It was the kind of book that you just want to shut the rest of the world out so you can keep reading. I didn’t want to go to sleep, I didn’t want to stop for dinner, I didn’t want to stop to go to work the next morning. (I woke up and started reading.) There is just something about the way Jennifer Domenico writes characters and the way she creates chemistry between them. It is pure magic. I really really love If I Told You. You need to read this book.

About Jennifer Domenico

One day, many months ago, Jennifer Domenico went to sleep and a beautiful love story played out in her dreams.

When she awoke, she felt compelled to write it down. So she did. The result was her first novel, Turn Towards the Sun and a writing career was born.

Ms. Domenico lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with her very Italian husband, a dog that adores her, two cats that tolerate her, and a wicked sweet tooth.

    You’ve definitely convinced me to check out Ms. Domenico’s work! I just wrote this title down on a little sticky-note, and will be browsing later on tonight.

    I think that the “half-and-half split” in narration (which you mentioned in ref. to “Chasing Desire”) would drive me nuts! I’m currently reading a book that alternates POV from chapter to chapter, and even that gets me fidgety. (“Yes yes yes, but what is SHE thinking!??!! …AAAGGHHHH!!!!!”) :p

    Thanks for another lovely review,
