Love this seriesThis is one of my favorite book series, I’ve read through it several times. So good!.Score: 5/5

GreatThis book was sooo good.Score: 5/5

Never forgetI will always remember the first time I saw this book while I was searching for something to do. I love how it’s funny, depressing, and filled with so much lovely descriptions about how these two characters love each other. I’ll never forget this book, I love this book so much, I hate the author for showing me how much I can love something. I love it more than my mom 😂.Score: 5/5

❤️❤️❤️❤️I kept pushing off reading this book because I wanted to avoid the inevitable breakdown I may have when I read it. This book did not disappoint. It was easy to read and the writer made it effortless for readers to feel apart of the story. I love it soooo much and yes I am still tearing up. 😫.Score: 5/5

BEST BOOK EVERI have read the whole series and at first I never wrote a review. I stumbled upon the book again and even tho it has been awhile and I’ve read other books I can honestly say that this series is my favorite book series ever. I can also say that Natasha Preston is my all time favorite author. I have also read “Save Me” and “The Celler” and I can’t get enough. I love the way her books have romance, suspense, danger, and thrill in it. Like I said Silence series is my favorite series of all time..Score: 5/5

It was okay.Mediocre writing and a rushed ending. I’m disappointed i stuck it out honestly. I just kept hoping when Oakley finally spoke that it would make the rest of the book worth it. It didn’t. Oakley refusing to talk was more annoying then it was interesting. Cole’s relationship with Oakley was the most interesting part of the book but it wasn’t enough to justify that crappy rushed ending..Score: 2/5

Silence, Broken Silence, Players bumps and cocktail sausages, and Silent Night..‼️‼️ AMAZING SERIES! This is the first book that I have read/bought off of iBooks, at first I just wanted to spend money on a book because I’d never read one on my phone and thought it’d be cool to have something to do during summer break. However, when I started reading silence I just couldn’t put my phone down, the author, Natasha Preston drew me into it, and made me want to buy the whole series. Through the series, I cried, laughed, and even felt like this story was personal, and I knew every character visioning them while reading. After I read Silence I instantly read Broken Silence, then I just couldn’t stop myself from going to the next, wanting to read from Jaspers perspective and not wanting the story to end. After reading all the books in this series I just want to read more!! Silent Night was so short, and I feel there should be more added to this amazing series, after finishing I’m still wanting to read further! There’s no way it can end with #3!!!.Score: 5/5

I LOVE THIS BOOK!! READ IT!!Some errors in the text itself and sometimes coles pov is on a chapter where it’s supposed to be Oakley (vise versa) but it’s really freaking good and I’m glad there’s more to the story! Can’t wait to read Broken Silence!.Score: 5/5

It's one of my favourite books out there. 4 days ago, I decided I'd check out some other of your books as I was bored, and remembered how good The Cellar was. This book is amazing and deserves a 5 star. (I found your books on Wattpad). This book has really inspired me to enhance my writing skills, and just to generally read more books.

Beautiful story!This book is a nice, smooth, engaging tale. Oakley is the girl often looked at as weak for her lack of words, but truly she is the strongest character. She bares the weight of the world so no one else has to know just how heavy it really is. Cole is every girls dream boyfriend, which makes him a little unrealistic but you fall for him as a character all the same. Following through the eyes of both characters you really feel what they feel and feel more for them. While the story may have a few minor issues here and there with spelling, timing, etc; it’s quite easily overlooked by the story as a whole!.Score: 5/5

IncredibleThis whole series is jaw-dropping. You will be taken on these ups and downs with characters who were rooted in reality. Keep a tissue box ready because you will shed more tears than Niagra Falls. This story contains sensitive matter and makes you feel truly disgusted and sick to your stomach when you learn Oakley’s past. 5 stars is not enough to describe my love for this bold piece of literature!

Best book everThis book is hands down my all time favourite. I was introduced to it a few years ago and I always find myself coming back to it. The writing, characters and plot are all so well thought out and so good that its impossible to hate this book. All the character are all so loveable until proven guilty. Even players who sleep around are proven to be softies at the end. Not only that but the character development is overwhelming. The way Oakley steps up and changes so drastically at the end of the book, and how her mom becomes strong and independent really shows the power of love and family. Along with the characters, the way Natasha Preston was able to grasp the thoughts of such a scared child and put it into a fascinating and intriguing, yet suspenseful and sad love story is what pulls me in the most. Reading about how Oakley falls in love despite what shes gone through helps me better understand how powerful love is. Which is perfect for a hopeless romantic such as myself. Overall this book is a must read and needs to be printed and I can never see myself not loving it and rereading it whenever I get the chance. I also love Broken Silence as we get to see Oakley and Cole’s love rekindle and forced to be built from scratch, but in a mature and adult way helps me connect with the characters more. Technically I love this series:) (i will also write a very detailed review on broken silence).Score: 5/5

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.

SilenceWow! 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.

Good storyThe story held my attention from beginning to end. The characters were well developed. The proof reading/mistakes throughout the book were many. I would often have to re-read a sentence that didn't make sense and then guess at the meaning. I didn't like the way the book was left up in the air with the next instalment to come in the next book at a cost..Score: 3/5

SilenceStory is really amazing but book needs so many grammatical corrections...Score: 5/5

Okayyy.This book was interesting and I wanted to know the ending, that’s about all it had going for it. Like others I skipped some bits after I was sick of reading the same junk. Also the writer often mixed things up like changing from Oakley’s perspective to Cole’s and then back to Oakley’s in one paragraph. They clearly lost their place and didn’t have the book checked over. Or the person who was to edit the book also skipped parts! Anyway, glad it was a freebie but will not be buying others considering the free ones are usually the best ones and the series normally get more sloppy...Score: 2/5

A good read butI enjoyed reading this book the characters are nicely created, however some inconsistencies and poorly researched information. I found a lot of confusion with the characters ages and the timeline such as Oakley is meant to be 15 going to 16 but is still in secondary school and Cole remains 17. A possible trivial point. Still worth reading!.Score: 3/5

The coverPersonally, I love the series and have read all of the books.

In need of work, but still lovelyI read both books within a couple of days. I really enjoyed, it was good for some light reading. However, this is in need of editing. There are a few spelling and grammatical mistakes which were sometimes distracting, as well as the over use of swearing that didn't enhance the book in any way. The writer seems in the middle of English and American, sometimes going too hard on the English stereotypes (I could make a drinking game of how many times the word bloody was used). Despite this, I really did enjoy them. It explores some dark themes and I love the romance between the two characters. I love that it's cheesy, it just made me smile. I'd really like to see this enhanced, the story line is there and the romance is there too. If we could get more accuracy on mutism and fixed the spelling and grammar this book would be amazing. Still, a better job than I could ever do..Score: 3/5
