Easy Silence by: Beth Rinyu
Get your tissues ready. Beth Rinyu, will have you on the edge of your seat dying with what is to come next. If you are anything like me, you may even be ready to yell at her once you finish reading this amazing book. Easy Silence is full of romance, drama, friendship, secrets, and heart break.
Meet Samantha Carmichael, or Sam as she prefers, 18 years old, spending the summer with her sick grandmother on the Beach in North Carolina. Sam comes from a political family who has their heads stuck where the sun doesn’t shine. She is not like the rest of her family though. She is modest, kind, and of course beautiful. She doesn’t need the material or brand name items to be happy.
Here comes Jaxson Callahan, just Jax if you don’t want your head chewed up and spit out. He is your typical 20 year old bad boy, on edge because of a rough start in life. It’s him against the world. He despises everything he thinks Sam is, only to find out he was dead wrong about her. He doesn’t realize that in a short time, Sam will become everything to him.
The two meet after an accident on the beach and soon become inseparable. Although, complete opposites, the two of them seems to be happier together than they have their entire life. They share passionate times together and end up falling in love. But love doesn’t always need happily ever after. Right before summer ends, Sam uncovers a secret that rocks both of their worlds.
This riveting story had me wanting to cuss Beth Rinyu out, but I wouldn’t change a thing about Easy Silence. Beth didn’t try and make everyone happy with this one. She stuck with what had to be done. There is no Happily Ever After, there is no girl gets the guy or vice versa, there is no riding off into the sunset. This book ends raw and emotional. You will cry, you will scream NOO, and you will be upset. In the long run though, I still for see a whole lot of Beth Rinyu on my reading list.
