This is the best book I ever readHey, idk if you will see this but eh. Tbh I love this book. It’s so interesting and so true about what happens in today’s day an age that children get sexually abused or assulted by adults/strangers or family. No one should be treated like that. I wish to continue reading more but I’m not really that rich and afford to get iTunes money to buy the rest of the books. I prefer if they were for free if that’s okay. 27/10/17 From a Junior Year 9 Student in Australia, Samantha.Score: 5/5

SilenceGreat story and very suspenseful. I was riveted throughout..Score: 5/5

Can’t ExplainI cannot explain how satisfying this book was. How amazing it was. It kept me on it all the time. I read it whenever I can. I have really been stuck to it, with the world of drama folding around Oakley, and her silence got me into it. The lack of time I spent reading with it was outrageously massive. I can’t wait to read the next, and the next (Silent Night, Broken Silence). This book hooked me from the start all the way to the end. The one thing I’ll Criticise is how much time I spent reading it.... everyday... every second. ❤️.Score: 5/5

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

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

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. Best to just read it and find out for yourself..Score: 5/5

My book reveiw for silenceI love this book i just decided to download it because I was looking for something to read and it came up as free so I thought ill give it a go if I don’t like it it’s ok because it is free. The first few chapters are not that interesting but as the story goes on it gets really good and every time I stop reading it I want to go back to finish it. 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. I would give this book an eleven out of 10 it was amazing and I did’t want to stop reading. I have now downloaded broken silence book 2 of this and I am hoping that it is as good as the first I am excited to read it and find out what happens. This book takes you on an emotional roller coaster with happiness, love, fear, anger and sadness. I would definetly recomend this book to anyone who is looking for a good read. A shout out to natasha preston for making an amazing story. This book will make you laugh, cry and most definitely go awww Tiana..Score: 5/5

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
