ARC REVIEW: SILENCED BY LEDDY HARPER


As a young child, Killian Foster survives the unimaginable. Silenced and scarred, he keeps to himself, spending his time with his notebook in the woods behind his aunt’s house. 


Until Rylee Anderson…


When Rylee spots Killian hopping over a fence next door, she follows him, unprepared for the boy she’d find—or the relationship that would unfold over the next seven years. Or the silence that would follow.


Fighting between the hate of his past and the promise of his future, Killian must make choices—ones that would affect more than himself. Choices that would test the lines of right and wrong. Decisions that could break the bond of the only love Killian knew.


Hate or love.

Revenge or forgiveness.

Silence or his voice.




"If I could, I'd steal the moon from the sky. I'd still the earth and keep it from turning into day"
                                                               ~Killian


What can I say about this book? "Silenced" has silenced me!! It sounds so cliche but yeah, this book has left me utterly speechless as in completely mute. It was such a beautiful ride and I really really adored this book! 

Silenced is a perfect blend of romance, suspense, mystery and heartbreak. This book has everything:-
  • Sweet Mushy Romance- check
  • Heart Warming Friendship- check 
  • Everlasting Love- check
  • Mystery- check
  • Tortured Hero- check
  • Dirty Talking- check
  • Alpha Male- check
  • Gut Wrenching Heartbreak- check
  • Cry Your Heart Out Emotions- check
  • Happily Ever After- check


Silenced is full of angst and twists. It's an ultimate page-turner. Once you'd start reading, you won't be able to put it down *mark my words* and I'm not exaggerating. My eyes were literally glued to kindle the entire night while I cuddled into my couch and guys believe me an entire night on a couch gives you a sore neck and the pain is so bad and yet I was on the couch reading this damned book! So yasss!!! Silenced was worth a sore neck with aching muscles. I think you'd get me now.

I loved how the story covered different stages of Rylee's and Killian's life. Their journey was so beautiful. Their love nurtured with time and they eventually developed an unbreakable bond. Both of them just fitted together. Silenced has a "childhood sweethearts" sort of vibe.

Killian's past made my heart ache. What he suffered and saw as a child, it was so terrible. I wanted to hug that little boy but you know I didn't *lol*. Killian was whole only when he had Rylee. Without Rylee, Killian's existence didn't matter. 
"I feel like I'm in prison here.Trapped in my head, trapped in the nightmare, I can't shake it. But you...you're the only one who makes that go away."  ~Killian
One second you are all lovey-dovey full of pretty smiles and then out of the blue author drops the bomb and then separation, heartbreak, tears! At one moment I was so happy for them and what happened next left me gawking at my kindle. This book is full of surprises and definitely worth reading. This is the type of story that will always be in your heart

This is the story of a boy who lost his family when he was just a child and in the process lost power over his speech.This is the story of a man who loved from the core of his heart. This is the story of a prisoner who wanted freedom from his nightmares. This is the story of a girl who fixed the broken boy and ultimately found the love of her life!



When Killian spoke to Rylee for the first time. I was so caught up in that moment. It was perfect. It showed how much Killian trusted Rylee. Also the letters Killian used to leave for Rylee is my one of the favorite part of this book.

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama,  inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from  cystic fibrosis . As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure. This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start! 1. Live Big because life don't give us enough chances. 2. Take risks , you never know which moment is your last.  3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you. 4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living. 5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.

REVIEW | BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families.  Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca.  Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power ,  but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile. In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster withi

REVIEW: Broken Knight by L.J. Shen

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending. Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower. Sweet. Caring. Charitable. Quiet. Fake. Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language. Who taught her how to laugh. To live. To love. Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero. Gorgeous. Athletic. Rugged. Popular. Liar. This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna. But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore. When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes. Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy TITLE- Broken Knight AUTHOR- L.J. Shen FORMAT- E

--Blurb-- Dysfunctional families, sexual abuse, sheer greed and sometimes just a skewed moral compass. These are some of the triggers that drove the women captured in these pages to become lawbreakers.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly. Cara She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her. She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra. And now she was at his mercy.
