From the Inside Flap

EXCERPT:

I could see Nix swallow beneath the collar of his t-shirt. For what seemed like the hundredth time, he rearranged stuff on his tray, and it seemed he had a hard time looking at me.

I'd pushed it too far. I was being way too forward with him, but I couldn't seem to stop myself. I was not practiced at flirting, and it seemed that I'd been reading his thoughts all wrong. In my state of distress from the car ride, I'd forgotten to take off my sweatshirt. Feeling like a fool for rubbing my foot so suggestively up his leg, I hopped off the table and walked over to the hook on the wall. Now I wanted to get this done and fast.

I unzipped my sweatshirt and slipped it off my shoulders. As I reached up to hang it on the hook, Nix's stool slid across ­the floor, and before I could lower my hands, his arms snaked around my waist, and he pulled my back against his hard chest.

There was a lot to like about this book - mainly, I loved Nix and Scotlyn. (Side note, I hated her name at first, the explanation of why she was named that though was pretty adorable.) They were great main characters for sure. Scotlyn stole the show for me, a perfect mix of assertive and vulnerable, especially since she was mute.

For the main characters, general premise, I gave this book three stars. Here is what I didn't care for:

I had a really tough time getting into the side characters and people they surrounded themselves with. I felt like we were supposed to get really invested in Nix's friends and I just... didn't care. They took up quite a bit of the bulk of this story and it felt like filler.

I wish they had gotten together sooner and hadn't been brought together in the last 20% of the book. The situation with Lincoln that was keeping them apart was... weird. The entire collateral situation just didn't grab me. The big confrontation the book was over in a flash - no suspense at all.

I did appreciate that Scotlyn was never miraculously healed by the end of the book and still had trouble speaking.

Overall, a nice easy read but not a ton of depth to it.

I'm confused about the mostly high ratings for this book. I felt there was almost no character development, I never felypt connected to anyone in the book, and overall there was no suspense or even hot scenes.

The main characters:
Nix- from looking at this hot cover, I was able to picture a little in my head. He was never described, aside from strange orange eyes. Huh? He owns a tattoo shop, for the love of god at least describe one of his tattoos. R does he even have one? Also, his voice was almost feminine, you could tell the author was a woman.

Scotlyn- I just didn't like her. She seemed weak to me. I honestly was annoys with the no talking and note writing, and simply didn't care what happened.

The side characters were ok, but did nothing for plot progression. The love was instant and yet it took forever for them to finally get together and when they finally did it was a complete let down. No passion, no romance, and definitely no heat. Blah.

I don't recommend this book, and wish I hadn't wasted my time on it,

This book was okay, but not great. It never really pulled me in or let me get lost in the story. I felt like there needed to be more character development and more suspense. The relationship was rushed and I never 'felt it' There was insta-love, without any real build up. The action at the end was rushed and too easily tied up in a neat little bow.

My biggest complaint is the time line for "Nana" At the beginning of the book we are told that she is an elderly woman dealing with dementia and heart problems. It is explained that she is an older grandmother since she did not have her son until she was into her 30s. We are never told how old Nix is, but I assume he would be in his very early 20s. He has an older sister with a husband and a couple of kids, so I would assume she would be in her late 20s at least. All of this fits with and elderly grandmother in her mid 70s if not early 80s. The problem is when Nana is telling her story she says that she was 19 in 1969. If she was 19 in 1969 she would be 63 years old. It is impossible for the character to be that young. That was a huge mistake made by the author. Nana is a minor character in the book and her love story is just a little aside, but still it is not difficult for the author to do some simple math and make the years correct. I expect there to be more attention to detail in a book that I am paying money for.

All in all the book felt very 'amitureish' I give it 2 stars because I was able to finish it and it was not terrible, but it was still a bit of a disappointment to pay for, even at only .$99

I'm not gonna lie, I bought this book on a whim solely based on the cover and was pleasantly surprised by the concept of the book. Mute after a horrible accident, Scotlyn is lost and miserable. Nix, is a tattoo artist who has a reputation as a heartbreaker but is secretly pining after one girl, Scotlyn.

On the surface, this book seems predictable and a little too "damsel in distress-like" but the book is well written and gives enough insight and personality to make each character real. The supporting male characters Dray and Clutch offer comic relief at some stressful points and are flawed yet intriguing enough to make me wish they had their own books.

The book is a quick read if you want a story that is not gut wrenchingly deep but has enough drama to keep you involved and rooting for each character.

This is the story of Scotlyn and Nix. Scotlyn has been mute since an accident in which she lost her entire family. Nix is a tattoo artist who since finding Scotlyn's picture has felt drawn to her.

This was a really good, quick read. The plot moved along quickly and I didn't feel as though it dragged at any point. There was angsty moments and a bit of drama to add to the budding romance.

Overall, yes I would recommend readers try out this book :)
