    I 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.
  • Such a good read.

    A good book with a very good plot line mixed in well with why Oakley stopped talking. The ending was slightly suprising but I enjoyed it overall I only bought it because it was free and I’m not planning to buy books with money so if u could by any chance make the second book free then I’ll buy it (please please make it free) Really enjoyed it recommended for 14 and above

    I couldn’t put this down! A real insight into how hard it can be for some people. Without the gory details. Tastefully written.
