    1. This book may not be for everyone, but it's a reality for so many!I may be partial giving myself five stars, but here is how I figure it. I wrote it, lived it and survived it. Yes, I am Lacey. Not only do I feel accomplished for surviving, but also for bleeding my heart on paper. I wrote this with blood, sweat and tears. Lots of them. I lost moments as a mom and a wife, I will never get back, but was needed to write as a sense of healing. I added few fictitious moments to make the story a little [...]

    2. First and foremost, I LOVE the cover. It tells so much about the story, without you even realizing it until the end. I had the pleasure of beta reading Destructive Silence. It's an emotional, angsty story that kept me turning the pages to see what happened next. I loved some characters and came to hate others. There were things I didn't see coming, others expected. There were times I wanted to cry, times I wanted to scream, and a few times I had to stop reading to deal. But it always kept me wan [...]

    3. That girl is beyond cray crayI think I get it.okay, maybe I don't.Review to come with my tour date on 11/27**FULL REVIEW**“I don’t know if I could ever face Caine again. First of all, I slept with him the night I met him – so you know he already has a poor impression of me – and second, I left without so much as a note; which, did I mention he will already have a poor impression of me?”Lacey is one damaged girl. Having a troubled and abusive past, she has reveled in living a quiet life [...]

    4. I was given an ARC copy of this book for an upcoming blog tour - I'm not sure how to rate this book because it was a love hate relationship with this whole book A-Asshole B-Buffoon C-ClusterfuckD- There are so many I want to say that begin with the letter 'D', I can't stand it! These are just a few names that describe a certain Douche bag in this book - Lacey and her BFF Becca do what girls love to do - go dancing and have a great time! High school is almost over and their real lives are about [...]

    5. ***This was giving to my blog as an Arc for a honest review******So when I got this I didn't really know what I was about to read. I thought this was another book of good girl falls for Bad boy and she fixed him blah blah we all know what I am talking about! Well usually those are the books I read.Anyways as I read this book I started to understand that this book was nothing like what I thought. Let's just say that I read the first couple of chapters and I was already seriously hooked. Yes, this [...]

    6. Destructive Silence is the debut novel from L.U. Ann, and what a debut it is! This is the first book in what promises to be one heart breaking, ugly cry inducing series.Lacey Edwards is a heroine whose life is anything but perfection. Her troubled past is a stark contrast to the posh life her best friend Becca Fox lives. I loved how this duo was exact opposites of one another, yet something about their friendship worked. Becca served as a source of humor when situations got emotional. Her spunk [...]

    7. Lacey is a senior in high school in Baltimore where her family has lived since she was ten. She has been raised to be a good Catholic girl. She is, but she also has a wild side! Not a bad side, just a lose yourself in the music and dance til you drop side.She dances to forget her past, a past so painful she has only ever told one person. Her best friend Becca. Becca is as fun loving as Lacey. She is strong, from a well centered family. She keeps Lacey laughing, and they share everything. Good ti [...]

    8. I'd like to commend Ms. Ann for the courage it undoubtedly took to write a book with such difficult subject matter. For that alone, I'm adding a well deserved star. Now, let me get to the meat of what worked and what didn't quite hit the mark for me. Mostly, it was the storyline that fell a little short. Lacey, the MC, was a difficult character for me to connect with, personally. She and her bestie, Becca, were also way younger than I would have liked seeing at an adult night club. Hence, where [...]

    9. BLOG TOUR Nov 25- Nov 30Destructive Silence is a based on real events, emotional, angsty story that keeps you turning pages to see what happens next. As a book 1 in series, it ends with a huge cliffhanger.Twists and turns I didn't see coming as well as the expected rotten acts I was able to foresee all created an ambience of precariousness.Love and hate. I loved some characters from the beginning (big thank you for Becca and her unique way of highlighting the most intense parts of the story with [...]

    10. Straight up, kittens. This has a WTF ending. I didn’t know going into it that it was the first of three books in the Destructive series. Cliffhangers don’t bother me. I read books multiple times so I will just read this one again when the next one comes out. That being said, I am still fuming about how it ended. This story is emotionally packed and heartwrenching. I know the asshole of this story. I dated him and let’s just say that Lacey and I have some issues in common. I don’t want to [...]

    11. I had the privilege of being a beta reader for this and was so glad to be a part of the ride!! This is one book you don't want to miss!Lacey Edwards has a past but when she meets Caine at the club, she knows she can't fight her feelings. Caine is one hot man but you will learn to hate him as much as you love him!!! Caine has a temper and sometimes I really just wanted to strangle him. When he was good, he was good, but when he was bad, he was AWFUL!!This book does entail a touchy subject for som [...]

    12. I let my 15 1/2 year old daughter read this. Now, she is not a reader at all. But she devoured this book. Read it in 3 days and instantly wanted book #2. My daughter has had some similar experiences to what Lacey has had in the story, that is why I gave it to her. My daughter came to me mulitple times, either laughing or crying, pissed off and emotional. And all I could say was "Keep going, you will like it." In the end, she sat and cried. Cried for Lacey's pain and some of her own pain I believ [...]

    13. I had the pleasure of being a beta reader for this story and OMG!!! This book snapped me out of my book runt. This book isn't for everyone but boy was it a good read! I haven't been this emotional over a book in awhile. This book shows how everything isn't sunshine and roses. I'm glad the author was brave to do something different in the world of same recycled HEA novels!! You will not be disappointed with this book!! This review will be posted on Shelly's Book Corner.

    15. Have you ever met someone you immediately connected with and the sexual chemistry was so strong that you just wanted and had to act on it, but more importantly you felt like it would help you get past something terrible that happened to you? Well that is what happens at the beginning of this story when Lacey meets Caine!We've yet to speak as our bodies imply the unspoken words, conveying pleasure, surprise, desire, and an unmistakable need.Do you also believe in soul mates? Have you ever met the [...]

    16. “What is life? Is it a journey or just something that you have to get through? It seems like a voyage to everyone around me.

She moved to Maryland from Florida with her family and meets her best friend Becca. Lacey’s story starts when she is a senior in high school.

    18. Destructive SilenceI read the blurb quickly once for this book when I signed up for the tour, which was way before I read the book, so it kind of felt like I was going into this blind. I like that. I like not knowing what to expect from a book, but from the look of the cover, I was going to love this one.I was right. I loved it.This was an emotional ride right from the beginning. We get the idea that Lacey has been through something that was traumatizing, but we do not know what it is right away [...]

    19. Wellwhat a story! It is so hard to review without saying too much, so I will try. I went into it kind of blind, wondering what it was about as i loved the cover and title and just wanted to read it.Having been through so much so young, Lacey let it all go one night and did something she had never done beforeept with a man, drop dead gorgeous, instant attraction off the charts met in the club Caine. I mean sh^t it was melting how they were almost at it on the dance floor.What a charming wonderful [...]

    20. Rating: 3.5 stars*I received an ARC for this book in exchange for an honest review*Holy crazyyyy!  What an ending! Ahhhh, you left me totally hanging!  At first, I was skeptical about this book.  I thought it was somewhat immature and had absolutely no idea where the story was going but midway through I realized holy shit!  This is a true story.  Seriously, two thumbs up to the author for writing about your journey through heartbreak, tragedies, love, loss, and so much more.  Stories like [...]

    21. WOW Just WOW!You know when you sit down to read a story and you think 'yeah I know how this will turn out' and in most cases it does! That's how I was when I started this book and boy oh boy how wrong I was!While I did find it a little hard to get into at first, it slowly but surely pulled me further and further in and had me hooked. What I didn't realise going in was that this book is based on actual events, this is the story of someone's life, this is the story of the author L.U Ann's life and [...]

    22. Abuse is pretty common among many relationships whether they are mentally, emotionally, or physically. Lacey is a good "Catholic" girl who always tries to do the good thing. Lacey has had an emotional trauma happen when she was just a little girl and this helps her keep the walls surrounding her heart. One night while out dancing with her best friend Becca, Lacey ran into the most handsome man she has ever seen before, Caine. Becca tries to tell Lacey this may be a bad idea until Becca notices C [...]

    23. ***ARC received from author in exchange for an honest review. Blog tour stop can be viewed here: ourfictionalboyfriendsspo ***5 StarsOMG!!! What did I just read? I literally had to stop twice before finishing this book. I was expecting girl meets bad boy, bad boy saves her from her past then they live happily ever after, next book please! Man was I wrong. I was so frustrated with Lacey for being so naïve (this is me being nice), that I wanted to reach inside my kindle and slap some sense into h [...]

    24. Destructive Silence and Destructive Choices are only two parts of Lacey's journey. Part three is scheduled for release in June of 2014.My heart breaks for Lacey and what she endures in these two books. Every time the unthinkable happened I had to remind myself that Lacey is based on the author's real life experience. What a harrowing ordeal for anyone to experience even one of these unspeakable acts, let alone all of them. Oftentimes I found myself wondering how much more this poor girl could po [...]

    25. Won this book in a giveaway from First Reads. I'm kind of excited about it But at the same time t looks kind if depressing. I've read books like this before and some turned out beautifully done revealing the truths in the mind of people in pain while other books I've read are just constant drama and annoying characters. I guess I enjoy them more when the character fights for why thy want and where they want to be even thought their pain may seem unbearable. I'll wait and see what this book is a [...]

    26. Arc review3 starsThis is my first time i read l.u. ann and i think she is a good author. She is very descriptive and its a very believable story. The characters are well written and i do enjoy her secondary characters. What i didnt enjoy is that sometimes it is overly drawn out and it felt sometimes that she kept retelling the same things in different chapters. I think there is a lot of information sometimes and not enough of the story.This book is a cliffhanger, just to forwarn you. It is also [...]

    27. I created this Young Adult Edition to allow a wider audience. This story deals with heavy material. It may not be for everyone, but it's a reality for so many!Lacey is nineteen years old. It is extremely important to remember this while reading because you will be frustrated, angry, happy, and sad. You will want to reach into your Kindle and strangle her sometimes. What is important to realize is how and if she can make herself whole after losing a vital part at such a young age.I may be partial [...]

    28. If you’re looking for a simple easy read, this book is definitely not for you. Destructive Silence is not your typical love story. It’s more a story about real life. Life isn’t easy, and it’s not easy for the characters L.U. Ann created. It is a very emotional story. This book will keep you entranced and constantly turning the pages as fast as you can to find out what happens next. It is full of twists and turns that will leave you guessing. And yes, because it’s the first book in a se [...]
