    4.5 starsOh well this book was plain amazing Really.It was my first Harper book, so naturally I was kind of intrigued by the blurb when I first saw it, and dove right into it when it came on my kindle I have to say she delivered.The very beginning of the book struck us with a tragedy, and we kind of had an inkling about what had happened, but it wasn t until later into the book that we are given a clear picture of the horror that Killian had witnessed on that fateful day.Which brings us to Killi [...]

    Silenced What does that word mean to you I guarantee it means something quite different to a child who has witnessed a horrific event No spoilers Not the way I roll I will say, this is a dual POV novel, that spans years in the lifetimes of our main characters You ll grow up right along with them Ms Harper has a knack for getting us right into the head space of our hero and heroine although, sometimes you almost don t want to be there because it s a dark and painful place to be You ll be happy, m [...]

    I ve read a few books from this author and this was certainly my favourite to date At the start although I thought it started brilliantly I wasn t too keen that it started with the main characters being so young this is only my opinion and doesn t take anything from the story However I had faith in the author and read on I found myself absorbing the words and forgetting that I wasn t keen on the age at the beginning My heart broke for Killian His story wasn t an easy one and he wasn t dealing wi [...]

    Genre NA RomanceSensuality R10 yr old girl meets the scarred, mute boy next door.I liked this I thought the prose wasn t bad for selfpub However, there were a lot of elements that I did not like or was uncomfortable with so I can t rate it higher than 3.25I would be interested in reading another novel by this author but looking over her backlist, she specializes in Second Chances Romances, which this one also is.Tags revenge, childhood sweethearts, boxing

    3 stars This book started out promising, I easily felt the characters in the story, especially Killian Scarred from what happened, I totally get it why he acted the way he did Because he was still a child However, as he became an adult, then I couldn t understand why he continued to do so Granted that it was because of the past as a child, I understand As an adult, ummm no When they were kids, I enjoyed the time they spent together As teens, well all they ever did was play around as they continu [...]
