Sunny Shelly’s Review: Say Yes, by Kandi Steiner

Say Yes by Kandi Steiner is now live!

Two strangers.
Two words.
One unforgettable summer…

When you’re an artist, everything has to be perfect.

Or so I thought, until my professor told me my perfection was boring and unoriginal. Studying abroad in Florence has taught me one thing: I know nothing when it comes to what makes art truly beautiful.

So, with my professor’s words in my ear, I step outside one evening and decide to say yes to any and everything I’m faced with until the sun rises.

Of course, I didn’t expect him to show up.

Liam Benson, the broody, sexy, tortured artist from my class who I can’t stand. He’s got a sour outlook on the world and an ego so big no one could properly stroke it to his satisfaction.

When he finds out what I’m doing, he hijacks my “yes” night.
And after just twelve hours with him, I’m desperate for more.

But Liam is running from more than I could ever understand, and with his heart guarded and mind made up about life, I don’t stand a chance.

I convince myself that we can keep it casual.
But walking away from him at the end of the summer is as impossible as painting outside the lines.

I used to think when you’re an artist, everything has to be perfect.

Turns out everything has to be painful, and messy, and fleeting.

If only I’d known that before I fell under Liam Benson’s spell.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Holy smokes! Kandi Steiner brings ALL THE ANGST with Say Yes! Plus, it’s set in 1996 — the year I graduated college! — so I related so well to Harley! Then there is the backdrop of Florence, Italy, Steiner’s signature angst and the retro vibe of Say Yes… well, I had a major book hangover afterward!!

Liam. Broody, broody Liam. I am a sucker for a tragic hero, and this guy has all kinds of baggage weighing him down. Harley has insecurities of her own due to her disability, and the way these two navigate those demons as they try to manage a no-strings fling was beautiful. As Liam teaches Harley how to love herself despite her disability, she teaches him to let go of the guilt and grief weighing him down and forgive himself for what happened in the past. While the romance between the two characters is certainly a focal point of this book, there is so much more to Say Yes with the themes of healing, family, forgiveness, and acceptance.

“… In the end, you only have this very moment.”

Say Yes is a book that I know I will be coming back to time and time again! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Meet Kandi

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
