Silent Hearts by Melissa West

The Hamilton brothers have horse racing in their blood, and their sprawling Kentucky farm is the family’s pride and joy. But they’ve got plenty of passion to spare…

Nick Hamilton has always known he’d take the reins of the family business when his father died, but that doesn’t make it any easier when the time comes. Especially with his two siblings tempted by a shrewd offer from a huge corporation to buy Hamilton Industries. Needing advice, Nick turns to his sensible childhood friend, Becca Stark—and finds her suddenly grown-up beauty ignites brand-new confusion, and crystal clear desire…

Becca has loved Nick for as far back as she can remember, but she decided long ago that telling him would be a mistake. Stubborn, strong Nick doesn’t see her as anything but the tomboy she used to be—or does he? As she helps him untangle his feelings about the ranch’s future, the familiar bond between them heats into an explosive attraction—and the kind of love that just might take the lead…

Praise for Melissa West’s Racing Hearts
“An emotional story filled with heart, humor, and second chances, Racing Hearts is a love letter to small towns, southern pride, and the heartbeat of all tight communities—its strong families. I laughed, I cried, and I never wanted to leave. An incredible story!”  --Rachel Harris, New York Times bestselling author

I really enjoyed this book. Glad the story continued with another brother.

I was looking forward to Nick's story. This guy carries way too much on his shoulders, and he's made himself emotionally secluded from everyone. Becca is his best friend. She's the only person who's managed to put cracks in some of his walls. They hurt each other and are risking their life long friendship. Silent Hearts kept me tense while I read it. Every time either Nick or Becca's feelings got hurt, I felt it too. This was a wonderfully, emotional friends to more story.

Silent Heart is the third book in the Hamilton series and is also the third book I have read from this author. It is the story of Becca and Nick, best friends that sustained each other through many deaths, events ect. Nick, has lost everyone in life except his brothers and Becca. His fiancee died 5 years ago, and in the last year he took over his father business, after his death. He is ready to move start dating again and is interested in his best friend Becca. She has feelings for Nick, but is reluctant to change their relationship. Can relationship evolve into something more? Can Nick find a way to balance his personal and business life? This is the best book I have read from author Melissa West. The main characters are engaging and well written. Overall, it is a good example of the friends to more romance genre. I was given a free copy for an honest review.

Silent Heart by Melissa West....This is the third book in the series and oh my...what a way to end the series. This story deserve more than 5 stars. Melissa West wrote each book Racing Heart, Wild Hearts and Silent Hearts to perfection, she is an amazing author. Her characters are always likable and relatable Nick and Becca are no different. Nick has experienced terrible tragedies in his life which causes him to struggle and Becca is his best friend and there to support and love him through this great book. Can these two make a relationship work? If you have not read this series or book, it is a must read. I received a complimentary book for an honest review.

I thought this one was an awesome read! It's a great friends to lovers story between Nick and Becca. Nick is still reeling from the loss of his father. While his brothers seem to have hit their stride and are achieving great things in areas of the family ranch business, Nick's struggling and can't seem to get his footing. While his brothers are ready to sell the business Nick is in charge of, he's not ready to give up yet fearing he will be letting his father down. With the love of his family and Becca, Nick finally sees what is really important in life and is determined to get what he wants. Has he waited to long? Hurt Becca too much?? You really want to read this one and find out. I highly recommend it.

“For me, there’s only ever been you.” “I don’t want to screw us up, but I don’t want anyone else. Only you, Bec. It’s always been you.” “God,did she ever love him. He was difficult and he’d hurt her worse than anyone else had dared, but she still loved him.” Melissa West has once again blown me away. She has left me speechless, with a smile on my face and a heart filled with love. Silent Hearts was just the read I needed and more. Ever since I finished Wild Hearts, I have been dying to get my hands on this book and learn more about the broody Hamilton brother, Nick. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed. Now, I have to tell you, I have been in the worst book funk. I mean the worst. So, when I picked up this book, I was hoping, I was praying that this book would pull me out of the funk I was in and boy did it ever. This book totally exceeded my expectations. Silent Hearts is told from dual points of view and pulls you in from the very first page. I was unable to put Silent Hearts down. I immediately got lost and consumed with Nick and Becca’s story. Nick is one of those characters that you can’t help but love. He’s complicated, broody, has alpha tendencies, but is afraid to fall in love. So many moments I either wanted to slap him or shake him. I wanted to yell at him to wake up and see Becca before he would lose her forever. And Becca….This girl…She was so sweet, and caring. The kind of girl you could always count on. She has loved Nick for as long as she remembered, but never thought she would stand a chance with a guy like Nick. Nick and Becca together were a force to be reckoned with. Their connection was so real, so undeniable. I loved their push and pull. I was captivated by the will they, won’t they moments. They made me laugh-soooo many times. They frustrated me. They brought tears to my eyes. And most of all, they made me fall in love. One of the best things for me, was how real the characters were. I can not say that enough. Melissa West made these characters feel so real to me. Like they were a part of me. She wrote them in a way that made them so easy to connect with and so easy to understand. I loved that Nick and Becca weren’t perfect. Nick had a lot of issues that he had to move past and he made a lot of mistakes along the way. You knew that he was just going to mess up. But, I gotta tell you, watching his character grow, experiencing the journey to his HEA, was just amazing. I loved every swoon-worthy, heart-breaking, angsty moment. I honestly can not say enough about this book. Silent Hearts was well written. It was a beautiful friends to lovers/second chance romance. It had just the right balance of angst, romance, and drama. I just loved it. I was consumed from beginning to end. I was taken on such an incredible, emotional journey and I just loved it! I can not wait to see what journey Melissa West will take me on next. *I was provided an ARC copy of this book via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review*

I liked the other stories in this series and honestly was most excited for Nick's story. I really liked Becca. She's so sweet and so good. And while she smarts off to Nick, when it comes to him, every decision she makes sort of revolves around him. As for Nick, he's swimming in grief and doesn't even realize it. He and Becca are just so right and perfect together that of course he has to continuously push her away and act like a jerk. The push and pull is where I started to lose my interest. I didn't think it would be all angsty all the time. Don't get me wrong, I did love the story {and the epilogue is near perfection}, but I really wanted more fluff. **Huge thanks to Lyrical Shine and NetGalley for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**

Silent Hearts tells the story of evolving relationships. How people change due to circumstance, maturity and environment. Although understated, Nick and Becca are the spark that drives this story and his family is the match that sets it on fire. I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review. Family, love, friendship and business collide in this story of growth and heart.
