    This was really good, I wish the Broken Silence was free like this one, that way I could finish the story, other then that it is a great book I couldn’t put it down, I hope Oakley and Cole get back together.

    These two fell in love over the time of being childhood best friends. Their love story is adorable yet different and shows the reader that there are all types of love and just because someone is different than others, it doesn’t mean you should treat them any different or that they shouldn’t be loved. Cole shows this to Oakley when he repeatedly proves his love to her and tells her it’s okay that she doesn’t speak. This tragic experience that Oakley went through was enough to make Cole understand why she couldn’t talk and helps the readers have a bit more knowledge on how this type of experience may have on a person. This book was GREAT and this love quo was even better. COLE AND OAKLEY FORVER❤️❤️❤️
  • Too much

    By coryhaslon
    Took way too long for this girl to reveal her secret and I’m honestly sick of reading after this. I’ve read 200 pages and I hope the next 200 are VERY different, it’s the same stuff but a different situation.

    The whole story focused on the gushy cheesy romance between Cole and Oakley, used the mystery suspense to keep readers going. Ending was mediocre at best. Felt like reading a bad fanfiction.
