Blog Tour and Giveaway: How To Say Goodbye

Book & Author details:

How To Say Goodbye by Amber Lin
Publication date: April 7th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Amy has a secret: no one has ever held her hand. She doesn’t even know how to hug. Everybody thinks she’s brilliant, but that’s because school was all she had. Then she meets Dane, a golden-haired surfer whose easy charm and hot touch teach her what she longs to know.

Dane lives for the salty breeze and a sweet wave, because that’s all he has. He’s lived on the streets since he was fourteen. A drifter. Homeless. But Amy changes everything. Smart and accomplished, she’s everything he’s not. He wants to be the sort of man who deserves her.

Except that means facing down his past—and that past might very well swallow them both.


Jaime's Review 

Amy and Dane, a new unconventional couple. You never were sure if they were going to overcome their obstacles and make it work. 

Both have their own pasts to come to terms with and let them go before they can be serious about each other. Which is easier said than done.  

Dane has a past that drove him to run away from home at 14 and never looked back. With no where to go, no one to go to, he becomes homeless. Living anyway he can. However he can. 

Amy is an unexpected interest to him. An introvert if can call her that. Never shown the true meaning of being loved, by anyone. Parents, boys, and never really having any friends.  Buried into her work determined to do well and prove to her mother that she CAN do anything worth being noticed over. 

These two, one touched in ways that shouldn't have been, the other not loved enough. 

You feel the pain and uncertainty of both characters. You can tell they were well thought out. I love how it ended esp. a happy tale for me. :)

It definitely made me close the book a couple and go, "wow, I didn't expect that." My heart was torn over their stories. 

I recommend this to anyone who wants a good cry and fist pump for a great ending!
