I liked the first part, The Loudest Silence, so much that I thought it would be hard to keep up the story. And, boy, was I ever wrong. When Kate and Vivian are still building up their relationship, a new obstacle comes to ruin it, Vivian's mother. Even though she was warned, Kate, being the good heart she is, still thought that she couldn't be that bad and trusted her. A good part of the book is about Kate finding a way to have Vivian back. She also has to face the possibility of losing her job, auditoning for a her dream one, losing her friends, her sad and heart-broken son. Too much for an already damaged heart. But she has ocercomed more and she will get over this, at least that's what she tells herself every day. There's one thing I didn't like or enjoy though. Understanding where Vivian is coming from and all the hurt she has suffered, I don't get her cruelness towards Kate. I don't get either why it's Kate who has to do all the effort to make the relationship work and never give up. I admired her because of that but I would shout at her “stop begging, don't grovel anymore, she doesn't deserve you, let her get close to you” as if she could hear me. And then to Vivian “I could smack you for making her feel so bad and meaningless”. The proposal was a combination of laughter and love. I loved the book. I finished it in a couple of days because I couldn't put it down, taking time from my sleep but no regrets there. I highly recommend this book. If you liked Part 1, you are going to love this one. I received an ARC from the publisher for a honest review.
