I seriously cannot say enough wonderful things about this story. It touched a spot in my heart and won't forget Lotte & Sam anytime soon.
Right from the start there is sadness and heartache in this poignant romance. This certainly doesn’t make the journey for Lotte and Sam any easier, but it makes the time they do spend together all the more fulfilling. Their struggles are real and totally relevant. Everyone has insecurities and Whitney touches on them with heart and compassion. Lotte and Samson are flawed, both harboring secrets they struggle to keep from their loved ones. They aren’t perfect and I think it makes them easier to relate to. The dual POV with Lotte and Sam allows you to feel the anxiety they both have with hiding their compulsions.
To me, this was not your typical love story and I really appreciated that. The setting was unique and the main characters were refreshing and real. The supporting characters are just as wonderful, so entwined in Lotte and Sam’s lives you can’t have one without the other. The way Lotte and Sam support one another when their secrets are revealed is honest and touching. You feel their pain and worry about them when they give in to their emotions and share their innermost secrets with one another.
This was a beautiful love story filled with emotion and the hope for second chances. We all make mistakes and forgiveness can be one of the greatest hurdles, but with it can come some of the greatest rewards. This story has just the right amount of angst, passion and redemption. I look forward to what Whitney has in store for us next!
Stand Alone: Yes
Part of Series: ?? The secondary characters in this book are featured in The Weight of Life but I'm not sure if there is a series name. And you don't have to read The Weight of Life to enjoy The Sounds of Secretes (but I feel like I want to)
POV: Lotte and Sam
Steam Level: Slow burn
The Sounds of Secrets was brilliantly written. It is a gripping look into grief and anxiety. About the journey to find yourself. And the secrets that we keep. After finishing this book (which I whipped through) I needed a bit to process and digest it before leaving my review without giving away the secrets of this book. I found myself highlighting little passages that stood out to me throughout. I could feel Lotte's grief, her anxiety, her compulsions, and her relief. I could feel Sam's self-loathing and his battles with his demons. Both are relatable, because I've felt them myself. And I think that that is what makes this book fantastic - the realistic thoughts and actions of these characters. That together they are stronger, still fighting but on the same team. There was little to no BS drama and whining - Sam and Lotte fell separately and got back up together. I loved it and would love to see more of these characters in the future.
If you've read The Weight of Life this is Sam and Lotte's story. I was so excited knowing they were getting a book. I love my British men. ;) Samson. *sigh* He's been dealing with a secret for years. Watching him struggle with it was hard. Lotte intrigued me. She's so young and trying to figure out what she wants in life. I could relate to her on some level. And this quote pretty much sold me:
"Some might think it pathetic, immature even. To love a man as soundly as I loved Sam, a man I’d never kissed, a man I’d never held. A man who had never been mine in any sense of the word. My heart burned for him before I really knew what that meant, before I understood the power and devastating despair of unrequited love. He was the man who came to me without warning, who had me before I had a grasp on who I even was."
If you love a slow burn best friend's sister/unrequited love story, then you'll want to pick this up.
This is probably my shortest review for a WB book. I guess it's because I'd be repeating my praise from every other book of hers. She's just that good. 😏
This story was full of adventure, heartbreak, and love. It covers some many of those tropes that everyone loves including friends to lovers and second chance romance.
The characters, both hero and heroine, were beautifully flawed, which was probably one of my favorite aspects of this story. They are so well developed that as a reader, you feel like you know them in real life, you feel for them, you want to see good for them. There is so serious chemistry and I was left thinking about them for DAYS after finishing.
I don't think I could have asked for a better story.
