My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Marie Meyer is a new to me author. I saw this book on a blog and the blurb fascinated me enough to pick it up and I’m so glad I did! Harper was feisty, vivacious and LOUD in her deafness. I thought it was AWESOME how Harper was able to “hear” Thor through music. She was so strong and brave even with all the obvious obstacles she had to overcome. Thor was the bad boy rocker with some pretty tough problems of his own. I’ve always been an advocate of “opposites attract” and these two characters couldn’t be more opposite! Yet, they absolutely worked together. There’s not a whole bunch of twists in the plot or even a crazy amount of drama but their story is sweet, sexy and heartfelt. Having no knowledge of ASL, I loved how I was able to understand Harper’s words by how well Ms. Meyer described the movements for some of the sign language Harper used. The only thing that I wanted more of was the relationship between Thor and his parents. I would have liked to see how he was finally able to trust Harper with his burden. Told from dual POVs with a sweet, happy ending.
I thought I’d live in silence forever . . . and then I met him.
I’ll never be able to hear, but music has always been a source of comfort for me. Rather than listen to the rhythm, I can actually feel the beat pulsing through me. It’s pure bliss. So the moment I saw Thorin playing his guitar, I was mesmerized. I’d never seen anything more beautiful . . . or intimate. I couldn’t tell where his body ended and the song began. He’s everything I need in my life . . . I’m falling fast, hard, and deep.
I want him more than anything. But while I live in silence, Thor lives in secrets. He’s holding something back-something that’s keeping this intensity, this longing from being real. And the silence may be too loud to bear . . .
