After years spent harboring a shameful secret, I finally felt...alive, reawakened and brave. Willing to break down my walls and let love in. Let him in.
We had conquered our pasts. The truth had set us free, and we were looking toward our future. Until a crazy twist of fate brought my worst nightmare back into my life.
The voice and soundtrack to every one of my haunting dreams now had a face. One he won’t easily let me forget.
The hits Ben endured on the football field will be nothing compared to the devastating blow his heart will take if he finds out the whole truth. He knows the story, but he doesn't know the monster. Not like I do.
Just as the wounds of my past had begun to heal, he's come back to rip them wide open.
Maybe some things are better kept from those we love.
Maybe some secrets are never meant to be told.
Maybe it's better to Say Nothing....
OMG… well Say Something ended with a mega intense cliffy!!! And Say Nothing starts off at exactly that scene… you know the one.. the scene where you had the breath knocked out of you!
We have Ari and Ben again, in this intensely dramatic and hot story where Ari’s past has come front and center in her life and threatens the happiness she knows.

OMG.. Ms. Roth really sets it up to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout this book. She takes your breath away in fear in one scene, only to take it away again in the holy hotness that is Ben…. Mad skills this specimen has.. let me tell you! Sort of started rooting for the creeper to get Ari out of the way so I can have Ben all to myself.. oh yeah.. I went there…lol

OMGAAAWD!!! Amazing first novel by T.A. Roth!!
This story is your love at first sight even though they come from different worlds!
Ari is a strong girl who forgoes college to start working.. she does not do the dating scene, nor does she want a boyfriend… she has intimacy issues due to a being traumatized during childhood. Ari gets talked into going to a frat party by her BFF Vonne. While there… she feels someone watching her… she scans the room and makes eye contact with Ben… it is an intense stare, making her feel like she is drawn to him, even though every instinct tells her to run in the opposite direction…
Ben is the epitome of popular hot jock! He has no problems with the ladies… he just does not do relationships.. at all! Or so he thought… Ari has this insane pull for him.. he can not ignore it!
Ari has a huge secret… one that has shaped and tortured her soul for many years… Ben unknowlingly is helping her overcome this fear she has… and she seems to be getting over her past trauma… until… that past catches up with her!
I fell in love with the characters… they are insanely easy to fall for… they give you just the perfect amount of mystery and charm. The story (sigh!) it was just what I love… it was more reality instead of a dream.. it deals with real life, real experiences, and real places… I literally could see myself as a fly on the wall in every scene..
Ms. Roth is really witty and made me laugh a lot in this book, and at the same time, she takes you to emotional depths of nerves, angst and melt your heart and panties moments!!
I have got to tell you that the ending… it is INTENSE!!! It was completely unexpected and shocked the breath right out of me!!! Now I literally want to go all “Misery” on Ms. Roth!! I need the next story yesterday!!!
Don’t let the fact that its a cliffy sway you not to read it… it is not a cliffy that leaves you hanging with the characters.. It is just the type that leaves you dying for that chapter to go on, as you know the next book is going to be like falling off a cliff into a very deep story!!
