“A rarely touched kind of love story, 5 stars”
Harper is all about defying the odds. Ever since she was little people have handled her with kid gloves. Don’t do this, don’t do that. Someone may hurt you or your feelings. You may be smart but you wont make it. She’s herd it all but hasn’t let it stop her. Because she doesn’t see her deafness as a disability.
Thor is the typical bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. He’s a musican just trying to get his break. Then one night a woman catches his eye, when he approaches her and discovers shes deaf it doesn’t make him want her less. Either they will end up friends or lovers, he doesn’t care as long as she’s in his life. Will the bad boy get his happily ever after with the rich girl?
Meyer knocked this one out of the dang park. Thor is swoon worthy and pure sin but in touch with his sweet side. He learns ASL for her, not because she asked but because he wanted to. Harper is a strong, independent woman who only fully blossoms with Thors help. They make each other the best people they can be. I absolutely loved it. Meyer gave the deaf community a beautiful voice when they are so often over looked. Then there are the secondary characters and they all tie the story into a perfect bow.
Here are a couple quotes from Live Out Loud I loved;
“With just one look, she makes me believe I’m some sort of superhero . How did a screwup like me end up with her?”
“The fact that Thor wants to learn, and is eager, it’s the most incredible feeling in the world, like my cells are infused with nitrous oxide—a hint of sweetness in my mouth along with a light, giddy disposition chasing away all the sad memories of my childhood. Who needs laughing gas when Thorin Kline’s around?”
“I love his hands. Talented, skilled, beautiful. Able to coax music from a silent instrument. They can make a car purr with life. Gentle. Protective. Strong. Loud when they speak.”
Writing styles- 5/5
** SBR reviews**
The whole story is about living in silence and living with sound. Thor sometimes needs silence to settle down, to be able to create music and Harper's life is silent. Even her relationship with Harper's former boyfriend was defined by the difference between coming from a Deaf family and a hearing family.
It is amazing to read how Thor tries to overcome all those obstacles and how much of a diffrence that makes for Harper. How can you NOT fall for a guy like him? Well, that's what Harper thinks - right until the moment when it is not enough any more. Or is she not enough? Or...?
There were moments when my heart broke, right then and there, I was so upset and I just hoped that, well, you know, all this happily ever after? That's what I wanted for those two and for a while I was really worried...
A wonderful book that left me thinking about opening up to someone, about connecting with people, learning other languages (and checking out options to learn how to sign as "Signing for Dummies" that Thor uses is not available for the German sign language and did you know that there are even different sign for the UK and the States?) and so much more. I loved the story and I loved the characters - a lot.
My first book by Marie Meyer but definitely not the last.
Thor Kline is the guitarist of an up-and-coming rock band, and some serious eye candy! Harper King is studying to become a clinical pharmacist. Right from the start, I loved how Thor and Harper connected when they first met. They have apparently nothing in common, and yet they are able to understand one another and accept who they are.
I appreciated how the author made them work so well, even though communicating is like exploring uncharted territory for both of them. Harper is deaf but she is an expert at reading people, and she is pleasantly surprised by Thor. He is downright adorable and treats her like he would any other person. He isn’t put off by her deafness and their natural connection is undeniable.
Harper’s life has never been easy, she had to overcome language barriers and the guilt and insecurities of her parents still negatively affect their relationship. They try to protect her but she wants to live her life, be accepted for who she is and make her own mistakes. Thor and Harper understand one another, they are speaking the same language and find strength in each other.
Live Out Loud is an emotion filled read that packs a powerful emotional punch. It is beautifully written, lyrical and perfectly paced. I definitely recommend it. It is a standalone told in dual POV.
An advanced copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher, via NetGalley.
