No, he’s not my boyfriend, or even just a friend.

In fact, we’ve never spoken a word to one another.

Stone and his band mates rule the ‘Alice Gardens’ house and dominate most of the other university students as well. People respect them, fear them, adore them.

And Stone is their king.

Their huge, silent, intimidating king. He frightens me.

Whenever I’m near him, my entire

If a guy wrote that sort of a song for me and sung it in front of a hundred people , I'd handcuff him to me FOREVER ! Yup , you aren't going anywhere my honeybuns !

Oh lord almighty , this book is HAWT !!!! Evelyn Vine is a shy , down to earth girl who just wants to get lost in the crowd . She doesnt like attention and isn't desperate for it

This book is killing me (smashing my head with my reader, crying silently in pain)!

I was constantly torn between two and five stars so my brain literally hurts right now.
There was soooo good parts but then there was that annoying little...

Lets start from the beginning, shall we?

Definitivamente no pude con esto. Stone casi no habla, en un principio creí que era sordo-mudo. Evie se supone que es inocente y tímida, pero hay una delgada línea entre esas características y dejar a una mujer como estúpida.
Entre un sin fin de miradas entre estos dos personajes, pasas más de 100 páginas y no hay ni un acontecimiento importante, solo fiestas y muchos nombres de amigos, hermanos, etc. Para que de repente Stone entre a la habitación de Evie y se acueste en su cama sin decir palab

No es tan malo pero es muy largo.
Al principio me aburrió mucho porque no pasaba nada y Stone no hablaba... igual no habló mucho durante todo el libro pero meh.
Eso si, me molestó que todo el mundo controlara a Evelyn y ella se dejara, aunque decía que lo odiaba y eso osh. Pero bueno, fue entretenido, aunque no lo recomiendo...
I'm actually very fascinated with CM style of writing in where she brings about this mystique of having to narrate more actions than words which she succeeds to build this tangible tension that leaves wanting more. Her technique propels Stone's character to have this very distinct air of mystery that leaves you guessing. It's an incredible read.

Well this was an interesting read. It's about teenagers at college. But it is an adult read IMO, as there are explicit sex scenes. Even some mild BDSM. Evie arrives for her first day at college, with no one to help her with her luggage. As none of her multitude of brothers and sisters had offered to go with her either as help, or moral support. So Evie is struggling with her luggage when a guy approaches and just picks up her cases and takes them to her room, without uttering a word.

Oh wow. This book was almost really good. When I first started reading it I was expecting a cross between "Thoughtless" and "Beautiful Disaster" and it kind of was like that just nowhere near as good as those two. I enjoyed the connection between Stone and Evie but the book moved kind of slowly for me and the author waaaaay overdid the strong, silent type thing with Stone-that's what stopped the book from becoming one of my favourites. The fact that a hundred pages into the book he had spoken a ...more

This book is horrible. Stone is quite possibly my least favorite character after Evelyn. He's supposed to come off as silent, brooding, and powerful but instead he just comes off as a mute. It's unrealistic. You can't properly build a relationship when you don't communicate with each other and the whole "conversations with their eyes" thing was complete bullshit. Also it's impossible for Evelyn to go from an A cup to a C cup in just a couple of weeks... Seriously. It doesn't matter how many weig ...more

Update- I finished it and really ended up enjoying it.

Ok so I’m like at the half way mark and the hero has said like 4 words. It’s a little unbelievable they can have a relationship of any kind without talking. Don’t even get me started on how she can interpret what he wants by looking in his eyes. I really would like to know what happens but it took forever to get this far and I’m worried the hero isn’t going to talk much more as the books goes on, which is really aggravating. I may come back
You know, this book really surprised me.
Not that I wasn’t expecting it wouldn’t be good, but I wasn’t expecting that it would be so freakin hilarious. I laughed out loud at so many parts. So fun.
I don’t think this book is well known. Apparently it used to be a fanfic. But this one was highly recommended in Maryse’s facebook page. And when it was said Stone was right there in the top with Fifty (50 Shades of Grey), Kellan (Thoughtless), Travis (Beautiful Disaster) and Gideon (Bared to You) I was

The author had some problems with people stealing her stuff so she basically took the book offline to buy, but it's on her website for free if you become a member. Best thing I've done in a long time!

Please say you’ll be…

I was surprised by this book. I had no idea of what to think when I read it the first time (because of Stone) so I read it again.

Meet Evie…

She is a shy girl who comes from a big family (9 brothers and 2 sisters). She likes to be left alone and be on the sidelines, where she doesn’t attract attention to herself.
But what she doesn’t know is that she attracted attention since she put foot on campus. Literally.

Was looking for a book where there was a taciturn hero. And boy was this guy ever taciturn. He hardly spoke a word throughout the book. You knew basically nothing about him but he was so cool he ruled the whole university. I'll buy that, but he had so many conversations involving just his eyebrows that it was pretty ridiculous in places. Still I enjoyed him for the most part. There were lots of strong elements to the story. I loved how she had so many brothers that everyone kept assuming at leas ...more

3.5 stars for this book. I ended up really liking it in the second half. It started slow and a bit tedious with the whole non-verbal communication thing, but after I became invested in Grant (Stone) and Evie's relationship I needed to know what developed and how their friends and family played into the story. Loved the song at the end **melted heart**
Thanks to GR friend Yani for setting me up with this book!

2.65 stars

based on the reviews I wasn't expected to be blown away, so it wasn't all that bad. This book was no pressure, I wan't rushing to finish it, but it was a good "in the meantime" book, while I wait for other books I want to be released, it sort of cleared my palate. at 78% The main characters actually had a semi conversation.

it's free so I'd give it a go if you're bored and waiting for your other books to be released.

Oh, this book had such potential. The plot had such promise. However, I just couldn't bring myself to finish it. The writing was so...BLAND; the characters even more so. The hero was supposed to be all silent and broody which I love but there's a fine line between being that way and coming across as a mute person! Literally, for the initial 100 pages or so, I thought he was MUTE and that would end up being the big reveal but I skimmed through the portion I had read again and realized

Evelyn Vine Be Mine is a long read for me because it took me two to three days just to finish this book but it's totally worth reading! :)

And seriously, are they really seventeen and nineteen? Hahaha. Overall I loved it! :)

This book enchanted me!
I can not believe that a story like that hooked me from the beginning. There is scarcely any communication between them, but those little gestures are what shapes everyone. Love that there were extra couples and lios among them. Friends and no doubt Evie's family. Fangirlee and pray to read stories about them because they are all great. I definitely love it. I do not usually put five stars, but he has won his place cheerfully. A long story, but one that reads fast because

Al principio el libro estuvo bien, pero estoy segura que puedo contar los diálogos de Stone y Evie con mi mano, fueran tantas páginas de nada, absolutamente nada, Evie de tímida pasa a malcriada e inmadura, realmente ese miedo por decir las cosas es tan irritante, "falta de comunicación" es absurdo, prácticamente ni hablaban, es una historia que tenía potencial de ser buena, pero no, la rellenaron con muchas estupideces, además de la falta de decisión e iniciativa de Evie, como carajos dejaba qu

definitely needs to be edited down, plot kinda rambles and repeats itself, massive slut shaming, Stone & Evie communicate whole sentences with their eyes but are practically mute with each other the rest of the time, made it hard to invest in their relationship when all they seemed to have going for them was sex, the characters definitely acted 17, 18, & 19 years old
it was a cute story but they needed to talk more and a lot of the problems wouldn't have happened. i love the other people in the book i think they made the story. Chelle Mitchiter is a new author to me but i will be reading more of her work.
