Review: Silent Hearts (Hamilton Stables #3) by Melissa West

Paperback, 174 pages
Expected publication: May 10th 2016 by Kensington Publishing Corporation

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is May 10th, 2016.

This is the third story in the Hamilton stables series which centers around three brothers.  This one the middle brother Nick.  While I don't believe it is necessary to read the others to enjoy this story, I did read the second one which centred on Alex' story.

This story is about two best friends that are meant for each other but don't know it.  You know how it goes, they have feelings for each other however do not what to jeopardize years of friendship for a romance that may or may not work out.  This leads to drama and angst and trouble in the relationship.

I really enjoyed the character of Becca.  She was strong and opinionated yet insecure and vulnerable underneath if you really looked beyond the surface.  Although lacking the pedigree of the Hamilton's, she had just as much if not more character.  Nick on the other hand was a little bit of a bore, except when he was with Becca.  I think this was intentional as he struggled with his fathers business and what steps to take with it and his career.

At the end of the day who doesn't love a story about best friends and soulmates?  Even within the story it alludes to the Cinderalla story that is Becca and Nick.  This will capture the attention of the romantics and romantics at heart.
