For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory “Mouse” Dodge, it’s a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime.
Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she’s imagined, there’s one she never dreamed of—that she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.
It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with the lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory faces a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants, and the truths that need to be heard.
This is my first book that I read from Jennifer L Armentrout, I’ve hear a lot of good reads to her past books but these one totally caught my eye. From the book cover, it is a beautiful art yet simple but beautiful. I can totally sense that there is a strong feeling that keeps me going on reading this book. I read the synopsis and man, i’m so eager to read so yup! I did finish the book for 2 days straight.
First three chapters of the book got me hooked quickly. I didn’t want to put my book down again easily. It’s giving me this urge that if I stop reading, i will miss everything. The story really caught me up and every chapter of it, it’s leaving me a mark that i will not forget.
I think Mallory is a strong girl and thinking how she grows for giving words that she need to find. When she met Rider again, the way she felt changes everytime she’s been with her. I won’t judge that since they’ve been together for a long time and they’ve been lost for a long time too. I like to see Mallory find her words in the end despite of everything happens to her past and to her with Rider. On the other hand, Rider, another book boyfriend. All the girls dream of is this man and I love the way he treats everyone especially to Mallory. He is the kind of guy who is open to help everyone when he’s needed and i totally liked it more of him. They’ve been good together and knowing the ending it turns pretty handy and giving us lessons what we think of forever.
This book give me this unforgettable feelings, ups and downs between arguments and how people connected and handle Mallory. This book give me high five emotions and what can I say, it is one hell good book to read and frankly recommend this book to everyone just to be aware what forever really means.
