It's been a year since eighteen-year-old Eden Munro last saw Tyler Bruce: her stepbrother ... and her secret love. Although they called time on their forbidden relationship for the sake of their family, Eden can't help but feel excited when Tyler invites her to join him in New York City for the summer. Anyway, Eden is happy with her boyfriend Dean, and surely Tyler has moved on too. But as they spend a long, hot summer in the excitement of the city that never sleeps, it soon becomes obvious that they aren't over each other. But can they resist temptation? Tyler and Eden must face up to their feelings and decide what to do next. Is their love strong enough to face the challenges that lie ahead?
My Review

I have never been a fan of YA romance due to the predictability. But the book Did I mention I need you was unpredictable to such an extend that I needed the story to be little more predictable. The undercurrent of love between protagonists was evident throughout the book. Yet I don't understand the love for hurting your loved one.
Breaking the societal norms can be interesting but sometimes, fiction become so strange that it would be difficult to see truth but yes  truth can be stranger than fiction. I know a couple with similar story. 
I would not say infidelity was supported in the book but somewhere down the line it is justified. The narration has a lot of freshness. I would love  to read the prequel.
