Tell me not to go by Victoria De La O

not-to-goAbout the Book

Jeff Price is in a long-term relationship rut–nothing a move from Utah to Silicon Valley can’t solve. But when he meets Samantha, his sister’s best friend, his newfound freedom is threatened by their attraction. Headed for med school, and still gun shy from her last relationship, Sam’s not in the market for love, either. The answer is simple: a ninety-day, no-strings-attached affair. What can possibly go wrong for two people determined not to fall in love?


This is the second book in the Tell Me series by Victoria De La O. I really liked the first book, Tell Me How This Ends so I was really happy to find out that the second book in the series is already out. The book focuses on Jeff and Sam who were support characters in the first book and so we already know how they first met. This book starts with their second meeting.

Jeff and Sam have reasons as to why they don’t want to be in a relationship. However, they are attracted to each other and so they decide to reach a compromise; a no-strings-attached fling. Of course, as you can guess, this wasn’t really the best idea. The story is narrated through the two perspectives and so we get to see both sides of the affair. I like the fact that two had baggage that they were dealing with so this wasn’t just a simple romance story. Don’t let the blurb fool you, the book offers way more than just a 90 days fling.

I also liked the fact that the MCs from the first book also feauture in this one so in a way, we got to keep up with them. The story also had such an easy flow to it and so I was able to read in just two sittings. However, I really didn’t like it as much as the first book. There are chapters that felt repetitive like nothing much was going on.  The magic that I felt with the first book was missing.

I still plan on reading the last book in the series. Hopefully, it will be just as great as the first book. I love the fact that it will be about my favorite character from the first book so let us see how it goes.

I recommend Tell me not to go by Victoria De La O to fans of new adult contemporary romance. I think it is best to read the first book and get familiar with the characters before getting this one. In addition, the first book is my favorite one in the series so far so yeah, you need to get Tell me how this ends. You can read my review here to see why I liked it some much.

  1. A change of genre 😛 I’ve realized that while I’m attracted to some romance (like in the last Bookouture), I would never pick up a contemporary romance. I prefer a love story if it’s an historical book or even some chick-lit!

    1. Romance has always been a risky genre for me.Sometimes I like it and other times I can’t stand it.I’ve found some really nice books in contemporary romance though.

      The only genre I don’t think I’d try out is fantasy.I have never even read Harry Porter 🙂

      1. Haha Everyone has their limits. I loved HP but I wasn’t obssessed like most people. I read many dystopias and teen fantasy books but I got tired of it. The genre I absolutely hate is erotica 😂

    1. Thanks Laila.I think I need to read more historical romance.You are the second person to mention the genre so it must be something.I’ll try check out one book under the category 🙂

  2. Romance is not really my thing, but it does sounds like a great read to change around genres a bit. Hopefully the third book will be just as good as the first one again! Great review. 🙂

  3. I appreciate your honest review, Diana. This books sounds like a ton of fun. But, it’s a shame that the magic of the first book didn’t continue through. I hope the final book is the best book of the three. 🙂 I’ll have to pick up the first book, for sure.
