4 Star Review!!!
The Sound of Silence has a lot of heartache and does touch upon a sensitive topic, domestic violence. It makes your tear up and wants you to reach out and help Gia. Ethan is just a monster with an addiction for Gia. It’s really a roller coaster with emotions up and down. Derek was our hero of the story, but allowed Gia find the strength she needed on her own time.
The Sound of Silence is dark. It will capture your heart and make you tear up many times. I couldn’t put the book down and read it in one setting. It’s a story that cries to your soul!
Release Date: November 17
Amazon Top 100 Bestselling Author, Dakota Willink, brings an emotionally gripping, dark romantic suspense to the Leave Me Breathless World that is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat!
There’s a common expression I remind myself of every day: that which does not kill us, makes us stronger.
People think I live an idyllic life with my perfect husband, but they don’t know what lies beneath the façade.
Like the delicate petals of the daisies he loved to give, I was easily crushed—broken, just as he wanted me to be.
I’ve learned to accept what is, but I won’t let it destroy me.
Instead, I do the only thing I can to survive—I run.
I knew she had a story. I knew it most likely contained violence, but never did I imagine the horrors she’d been though.
I’d waited so long and she’d experienced so much. She was perfectly imperfect, her scars more than skin deep.
It was near impossible to separate truths from lies, but I knew her secret. Yet, I couldn’t help wanting to get closer. She was strong, and there was beauty in strength.
I was drawn to it—drawn to her.
I wanted to erase her horrors and give her something new to dream about.

Where to start... Well I have always been a big fan of writing since I was small. I have pages and pages of poems I've written since elementary. So I have always been a fan of writing. A couple of years ago, I started my romance read journey with Fifty Shades of Grey. Now I can not stay away. I read anything Romance! Some of you may heard of the authors such as Julie Kenner, Lauren Blakely, Maya Banks, Sylvia Day, E.L. James.. Laurelin Paige..and I can go on and on. Reading is a stress reliever for me.. Oh and add that with a glass of wine :) I am a mom to two wonderful boys still in elementary. I have been married to my husband for seven years. I am blessed to finally have the time to start a reading blog and share my reviews of my favorite reads! I hope you enjoy these books as much as I have. xoxo Crystal
