Our Review

“Hello, Gia.”

Sound of Silence is not a love triangle, but a story of survival and it was our first read by the author, Dakota Willink. If you’re in the mood for something dark and gritty, this romantic suspense will answer your call, although, we have to point out that story may contain triggers for some readers, so please read the author warning: Dakota Willink does not hold back.

“You want to talk about Sleeping with the Enemy? Well, I lived it.”

We were instantly gripped by the story – being tossed from side to side with the twists and turns, and catching ourselves shouting throughout over the impending danger, whilst squirming over the actions of her husband. We felt every moment of fear and heartbreak with Gianna over her predicament, and despised her dirty cop husband, Ethan, who was one calculating bastard!

This romantic suspense is told in three POV’s. Gianna’s – from the heady days of meeting the charming (yeah right!) Ethan, through to the moment he showed his true sinister colours. Ethan’s POV is expressed in a warped, twisted, and sinister manner. And the sweet and gentle Derek, who’s POV brought balm to our tattered hearts and angst-ridden stomachs.

‘I didn’t have to lose a piece of myself to find love.’

They say you never know what transpires in someone’s life and in Gianna’s case, this rang true. To the outside world, she lived an idyllic life – a beautiful home, an attentive husband, married to the youngest Chief of Police in the Cincinnati Police Dept.  Gianna appeared to have it all. But looks can be deceiving.

‘They thought Ethan was perfect in every way – from his polished exterior to the smooth way he spoke. But they didn’t know about the monster who lived beneath the façade.’

As much as some parts of this story made us feel uncomfortable, we couldn’t look away! We did feel there were moments when the book didn’t quite know what it wanted to be, but we were transfixed and horrified for Gianna on every step of her journey. We willed her to find the peace she deserved and flicked every page desperately, yet tentatively waiting to see how it played out. And breathe……


A emotionally gripping, dark romantic suspense to the Leave Me Breathless World that is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat!


There’s a common expression I remind myself of every day: That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.

People think I live an idyllic life with my perfect husband, but they don’t know what lies beneath the façade.

Like the delicate petals of the daisies he loved to give, I was easily crushed — broken, just as he wanted me to be.

I’ve learned to accept what is, but I won’t let it destroy me.

Instead, I do the only thing I can to survive — I run.


I knew she had a story. I knew it most likely contained violence, but never did I imagine the horrors she’d been through.

I’d waited so long and she’d experienced so much. She was perfectly imperfect, her scars more than skin deep.

It was near impossible to separate truths from lies, but I knew her secret. Yet, I couldn’t help wanting to get closer. She was strong, and there was beauty in strength.

I was drawn to it — drawn to her.

I wanted to erase her horrors and give her something new to dream about.

Trigger Warning: This story contains situations of domestic violence and abuse. Some aspects may be sensitive for some listeners.

“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”


‘It’s such a simple word – just four letters. Home. But there aren’t enough letters in the alphabet in the world to capture the meaning of it.’

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
