He’s silent—but his touch speaks louder than words.
At first sight, Savannah is drawn to the harsh appeal of a man who refuses to talk to her. Keenan’s hard stare is arrogant and unapologetic. The quirk of his sensuous lips is cocky and in control.
But there’s more. There’s something deeper he’s trying to hide behind those steely grey eyes—a slight hint of vulnerability which captures her intrigue.
She’d been warned, told that his silence hides a myriad of lies capable of affecting her career and relationships with loved ones. Only she can’t help herself. Testing Keenan’s defenses is an addiction she can’t deny.
Falling in lust is easy. Learning his secrets comes with a price. The cost? Her broken heart.
Where To Buy:
I absolutely adored this story. I got so invested in the characters and store I couldn’t put the book down. My heart hurt for all of the ups and downs Savannah and Keenan went through over the whole story. Watching both of them get hurt over and over made me hurt too. I was intrigued by Keenan’s lack of speech when I read the blurb and wanted to know if it was a medical condition, by choice, or some combination of both. I’m not going to spoil what winds up being the issue because it’s a huge part of the story. But oh my GOSH the scene when everything is revealed was so freaking powerful!
Savannah was a character that surprised me a bit. She was so strong but insecure at the same time. She absolutely wouldn’t take any of her cousin Penny’s crap or from Keenan when he got too overbearing. You could feel Savannah’s fears of not doing her job well or that Keenan wasn’t as up front about his relationship with Penny. It made Savannah feel more real because of how simple but profoundly written her emotions were. Iw as heartbroken along with Savannah when everything came to light and it spelled the ending of everything between her and Keenan. Though I wanted to see her thought process more on her getting back together with Keenan. We saw from Keenan’s perspective a wonderful scene of how he tried to persuade her. Plus he mentions her physical reactions and his suppositions. But I feel like I needed one last scene from Savannah’s point of view.
Keenan broke my heart and gave me the rage all at the same time. his insecurities ran deep and came from a place of shame and pain. But he was one cocky SOB when he wanted to be. I got why he did what he did but I was just as hurt as Savannah by his actions. The way he works hard to regain her trust and start again was so powerful. You can feel his heartache and thinking she won’t ever forgive him. I adored his emails to Savannah. He gets so real with her. I love how he humbles himself to her in the end. He shows that he’s not going to hide anymore and he’s completely in with their relationship and he trusts her. That’s a totally sexy scene.
I couldn’t stand Penny at first and adored Dominic. As the story progressed, my feelings for these two swapped a bit. I got why Dominic was being harsh with Savannah and why Penny was being difficult (nicest word I could use for her actions). Towards the end I reached the point where I want both of them to get their own stories and need to hear their thoughts and emotions. I would love to see more Savannah and Keenan too, even if their story is complete. I loved their happily ever after. That last email from Savannah was so perfect. It brought everything together and let you know they’re going to make it and all of the hurt is long gone.

I’m an Aussie author who’s been typing my daydreams since 2011. I have an extremely busy life, but never seem to leave the couch. I have a mouth full of sarcasm but very few social event to use it to my advantage. And I absolutely love my life and the three males that control it – two sons and a quick-witted husband.
I’ve been an avid romance reader for years, giving my heart out like a hussy to every fictional hero imaginable. Eventually, I got to the point where I thought, ‘What better way to claim these heroes than to write some of my own?’ So I did.
I believe laughter is the best medicine, reading is the perfect escapism, love is the most important thing in the world, and giving that to someone through the pages of a book is the perfect career for me.
