The Sound of SilenceThe Sound of Silence by Dakota Willink
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an emotion filled rollercoaster of a book which has you gripped from page one and doesn’t let go. There are trigger warnings for this book which are needed because of the issues covered in the story. Domestic abuse is a hard topic to cover and do justice to but this author has done a fantastic job. Its the first book I’ve read in a long time where I have actually felt the fear of the female character. Its like a horror movie where your screaming at them to leave but its easier said than done when you are actually in that situation.

Gianna thought her life would be perfect. She met the man of her dreams, he brought her dream house, treated her like a princess. However her prince wasn’t all that he seemed and their chance meeting wasn’t by chance at all.

Ethan planned everything. What Ethan wants Ethan gets. Whether that’s the cute barmaid who’s caught his eye, an obedient wife or a family he will stop at nothing to get his way. This leads him to resort to physical and mental abuse.

Add to the mix Derek a stranger she met on her wedding day. The connection between them was strong and felt right but they parted ways. He never forgot her and when they meet again he is still drawn to her.  He can tell she has had a bad life but he doesn’t realise how bad. Trying to separate truth from lies he learns its worse than he ever could have imagined.

Can Derek fix Gianna and help her recover from her past. Or are the scars left by Ethan and his abuse to deeply bedded inside her?
