I fell head over heart for Lexie in Mia and Zane's story Out of the Ashes and couldn't wait to read her story. I fell even harder getting to know her and watching her fall in love with Killian. Anne gave us a peek at him too in that same book and I so wanted to know more about him. Lexie is sweet and smart and so talented. I adored her heart as she just loved Killian as he had never experienced before her. And what a delicious boy he was for her giving her sweet to overflow. I really loved watching them love on each other. I also loved the relationship that she has with her mom. Lexie and Mia reminded me so much of the Gilmore Girls with the affection and banter they shared together. Then there are Lexie's boys. Her band. I loved this little family they created and I can't wait to get to know them more. I wanted to shake Killian hard towards the end of this part of their story and I am dying to see what happens next.
I give Echoes of Silence 5 hearts!
About the Book
People made love seem complicated. Intricate. Novels tried to capture its intensity, music tried to rein in its soul.
I read every novel I could. I lived and breathed every song that I could listen to. The sounds filled up my unquiet mind.
Then came him.
He brought with him the beauty of silence that echoed through my soul and showed me love wasn’t complicated. It was simple. Beautiful.
Some say love at first sight didn’t exist. That you couldn’t find your soul mate at sixteen years old. Those were people rooted in reality, chained to the confines of life that dictated how you were meant to think. Killian broke those chains. He broke everything. Shattered it so I could see that reality was overrated. That daydreams could somehow come to life.
My life tumbled into darkness in the time after I met him. So dark I thought I’d never see the light again. But he was always at my side. His life meant he knew how to navigate the dark. Lead me out.
I waded through the darkness with him at my side.
We’d be together forever, I was certain of that.
Until I wasn’t.
