Synopsis: This novel follows Maggie Carleton and West Ashby. Maggie’s life fell apart 2 years ago when she watched her father murder her mother. She has never spoken a word since. Now she has moved in with her aunt and uncle. West Ashby is the guy who has it all. He’s cocky, popular, a football god, and is watching his father slowly die of cancer without anyone knowing. One night, West can’t take the grief anymore, and spills everything to the girl he know won’t tell a soul: the mute girl, Maggie. What he never expects is for Maggie to reply, spilling her own dark secrets. What he never expected either, was to fall in love with Maggie.
Review: I have a few things I want to say about this novel. I enjoyed it very much, don’t get me wrong. But some points in this story where it felt slightly childish and immature. The plot was great and the writing was beautiful and it was rich with emotion and heart break, but Maggie and West frustrated me a bit throughout this. Their relationship mostly seemed immature at times, but overall it was an incredible book.
I give this book 3/5 stars and would recommend it to fans of contemporary romance novels.
