A hot and consuming New Adult romance about a wayward musician and the one girl who keeps him grounded…
At college, Rachel has a reputation for being a sarcastic flirt with a thing for star athletes. No one at school knows that she’d had her heart ripped to shreds by her high school sweetheart, who’d driven them both off the side of the road on a borrowed motorcycle, and then abandoned her. No one knows the real Rachel Mattson—except one person…
Ever since he helped nurse his sister’s feisty best friend back to health, pierced bass player Kai Nakos has been head over heels in love. But the supposed bad boy can’t risk letting Rachel know the truth—especially now that the two of them are back in their hometown for the summer, together for the first time since the months following that fateful night. Never mind that Rachel’s ex is back, groveling for her forgiveness.
Shaken by her ex’s return, Rachel finds herself turning to the one guy she knows she can trust. Kai is willing to hide his feelings for her, just to have Rachel touch him again. After all, this is only a temporary fling. Until it becomes something more. But maybe it had been more all along.
Whisper to Me is one sexy book! Rachel and Kai have this longing for each other that really burned up the pages it’s sexual tension.
Now, should you be expecting something different than other New Adult books out there? Probably not. They both have their angsty pasts and current issues, but it wasn’t overly dramatic, which I appreciate. Rachel shed her high school self when she started college because of the big moment that changed her life and ultimately broke her heart. Kai, on the other hand, has never found his place in this world and his family doesn’t take him seriously. Oh, also? He’s been in love with Rachel since high school, which really messes with his head.
Now it’s Summer and these two are spending it at the same house. The tension and sparks pretty much fly from the get-go. They have this sort of secret relationship which only adds to the deliciousness of it all. Their road to happiness is certainly not easy, and it’s even a little emotional, but it completely works.
I very much enjoyed Christina Lee’s third book in this Between Breaths series, and that was surprising to me because Rachel has been my least favorite character the last two books. She just has a potty mouth I can’t seem to appreciate, but it’s really toned down in Whisper to Me. It probably has to do with her pretending to be a person she isn’t, and we get to see the real Rachel in this book.
I definitely recommend this book, especially if you’re looking for something to take to the beach with you this Summer. :)
