    This book was so great. It kept you guessing and at the edge of your seat in certain moments. The beginning was a little slow but still very important and good. Overall, I really recommend this book and this is now my favorite book😁.

    I really loved this book, in fact it is one of my favorites. There are so many different emotions I felt as I was reading this. I feel like the reader developers a personal connection with the characters. I loved the romance in this book. I also love how Oakley trust Cole with everything and how even though she doesn’t talk she still shows that she loves him. I also love how Cole loves Oakley so much and how he doesn’t let anyone mess with her and how protective he is of her.I also love how Cole can tell what Oakley is saying even though she doesn’t talk. I would definitely recommend reading this book if you haven’t already.

    ‼️‼️ 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!!!

    I LOVED THIS BOOK! I have a hard time finding books that fully catch my interest. But this book had me hooked in the first few sentences. The entire story was simply amazing. I couldn’t put it down.
  • Adore It

    By Jaxanae
    i absolutely loved it. i think it has such a deep meaning behind it and i never wanted to take my eyes off of it. the way she wrote it made me imagine everything in real life with real people it felt like i was there. it was an amazing romance story which i don’t usually like. made my heart race, melt, and soar all at the same time. (i’ve read it over and over and never have gotten bored of it)

    I 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.

    Great read!!! Wishing I had a love like Cole and Oakley’s
  • It was okay.

    By Woooo!22222
    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.
  • A great book to read!
