When Oakley is forced to face someone from her past, can she hold her secret in any longer?

    I love this book i just decided to download it because I was looking for something to read and it came up as free so I thought ill give it a go if I don’t like it it’s ok because it is free. The first few chapters are not that interesting but as the story goes on it gets really good and every time I stop reading it I want to go back to finish it. Every chapter or so there is a masive cliff hanger which makes you wonder what is going to happen and it makes you want to read it more to find out what happens. I would give this book an eleven out of 10 it was amazing and I did’t want to stop reading. I have now downloaded broken silence book 2 of this and I am hoping that it is as good as the first I am excited to read it and find out what happens. This book takes you on an emotional roller coaster with happiness, love, fear, anger and sadness. I would definetly recomend this book to anyone who is looking for a good read. A shout out to natasha preston for making an amazing story. This book will make you laugh, cry and most definitely go awww Tiana.

    Wow! Breathtaking. I couldn't look away. I was scared to 'know', the full ugly truth, but I couldn't stop reading. I cried. My heart ached for the young lovers, for the broken Oakley, for her broken family, for Oakley's silence. This was exceptionally written. The author was respectful and caring of the subject without compromising the necessity for full disclosure. The ugly truth and the blame was put squarely where it belonged without losing sight of, or undermining or glossing over the terror experienced by Oakley. The telling could've all gone wrong if it was a one dimensional story, but it didn't because it wasn't. Oakley's post traumatic stress was palpable. She challenged it and she succeeded, only when she was with Cole. Her misconstrued thoughts, her beliefs about herself, her fears and her lack of self worth were heart breaking. Her boyfriend's almost psychic ability to communicate and care for her was not out the bounds of reality, given that they were two children who grew up together with one having suffered a trauma. Each and every person around her, had developed in a way over the years, that mirrored their deep need to know what happened to her and help her heal, except for one who had their own agenda; to keep her silent. I felt deeply for Oakley, and all those around her. Many lives were forever traumatised by what happened to Oakley. That's a major understatement. Best to just read it and find out for yourself.
