I loved this book!

This is a story about Dylan and Silver. A story that wasn't supposed to end but circumstances and life came in their way...

Now 6years later Dylan is living a boring life, doing what her parents want her to do, in a fake relationship with someone she doesn't really like and who isn't really into her.

She is empty and boring, a shadow of what she envisioned her life to be...

Sometimes, I really have this gut feeling when a book's really going to be good. Most of the time, I'm right. And fortunately, this one didn't disappoint. It's just amazing.

It's only being told from the heroine's POV. Usually, I prefer dual POVs. But this works just fine. All her life, Dylan Silver has been the good perfect daughter. She's always been following what her parents want for her. The question is, what does she really want for herself? Is she happy with the choices she had made?

With that one word, that one name, I could be done with this review, simply because, he, Sawyer, makes this read so worth it and one you do not want to miss out on. Whether you love this genre or not. Whether you love romances or not, Sawyer is a man you need to meet. You must meet.

I read a lot of contemporaries, it is one of my favorite genres and because of that I have come across a lot of swoon worthy, lust inducing, leading men but none of them compare to the sweet hotness that is Saw

Silver Heart is without a doubt the best New Adult book that I have read this year. There is really no way for a book to be perfect, and there were definitely a few things I had very slight issues with when I was reading Silver Heart; however, when it comes to New Adult books, even with the slight issues I came across, I was extremely impressed with Victoria’s work. To jump into the genre with a debut, and make it stand out so much is quite a feat. Especially since New Adult is starting to becom ...more

Aww! What a sweet heartwarming story! A story about second chances and learning to be yourself and let go and do what makes you happy regardless of what anyone else thinks!

Sawyer and Silver (first name Dylan, last name Silver) were best friends who secretly were in love with each other. They grew up together. But Sawyer lived on the "wrong side of the tracks" and he and Silver had to hide their friendship from Silver's parents. Sawyer lived in an abusive home and Silver was his

There have been so many New Adult books that have come out in the last year. At first I was all about NA. I couldn't get enough of them. But lately I feel like I've been in a NA slump. Every book I read sounds exactly the same. Luckily that did not happen with Silver Heart. It is one of the best I have read, and it can definitely hold its place among some of the other well known NA stories!

Dylan has always done what her family expects of her, so she never got to be her own person. She graduated

Silver Heart has it all. Enthralling writing, memorable characters, a touching "second chance" love story, and whimsical moments that get you all giddy and warm inside. Not to mention quite a few strategically-placed sexy times that changed my view on snowboarding and certain frozen food items forever! I'm a sucker for "second chance" love stories, especially when it's done well, and readers, Silver Heart was fantastic. I think Victoria mixed a perfect blend of a rekindled romance with the inner ...more

I was completely and utterly enchanted by Silver Heart. It made me smile and swoon all at once, dazzled me with its wintery setting, and hit me with a great amount of feels I wouldn’t trade for in the world.

I have some serious love for Dylan because she was admirable in her self discovery, in her love for Sawyer and in her independence, strength, and devotion. She was not perfect though she strived to be. Dylan had her own fears and doubts that led her to realize what she truly wanted out of her

A lot of people on Twitter had been raving about this one, so maybe I was expecting too much. The book started out promising, but it quickly turned cliche and lost a lot of its depth.

Considering Dylan's future plans were of such huge importance I would have liked her to grapple with it more and make up her own mind, rather than still planning for most of the book to go back to her own life. Parental expectations are hard, but I like my MC's to have more of a spine.

The romance was also lacking. I

This novel was so heavy on the romance side, though I lost count on how many times they'd done it - any manner in any way - I thought the story was good. I managed to hold on to it because I liked how it started, and in all fairness the Girl was at least sensible (but only in a matter of time when she's not melting in a puddle of lust). Ofcourse, unarguably, the guy was sex on a stick. When he wants it, he gets it. Every.Freaking.Time.

prestigious family and their expectations for her (and her brother, Adam) were off the charts. Sawyer's goals included saving his mother, sister and himself from an abusive, alcoholic father. At a young age, these two meet and there is an instant connection. A friendship is formed that lasts throughout the years.

Making the choice between a boring prefabricated life or living in the moment with your destined lover? This is the decision Dylan Silver must make, in the book Silver Heart.

Growing up, Dylan has always played the idealistic child for her dictatorial parents, living her life to make them happy. And as a teen, to ensure their happiness she had to give up her own. Now at 22 years old, having her parents control her social life, love life and education, is status quo. That is, until Dylan decides t

Obviously not

I guess no matter how many reviews I try to read before plunging into a book, the chances of me enjoying it will always be 50-50. I wanted a fast read and presumed this had some substance to it. Fair enough, there was to a certain extent but like most "novella" (this book is longer than a novella); this book was just touch and go.

Sometimes I had rather the author focus on 1/2 issues at hand rather than creating a few drama here and there.

I was lucky enough to be able to BETA-read this amazing novel. When I say lucky, that’s an understatement really – I just don’t have a word to describe it.
Silver Heart is one of those heart-wrenching books that is also heart-warming at the same time. It’s difficult to put into words how I felt about the story because it made me feel such a roller coaster of emotions that it’s hard to pin-point the essence of what made this book so awesome.

Silver Heart has two things that I love most in new adult books – a relationship founded first on a friendship and a relationship that picks up after years apart. This made it an absolute must-read for this NA fan.

You know those stories where the guy and the girl have been separated by time and space, and very coincidentally and unexpectedly one day come face to face once again? They’re so much more dramatic and anticipatory than regular boy-meets-girl stories. It’s like the drama and a

A good, solid romance, but nothing spectacular.

This is a short, fun, cute read that almost anyone can enjoy. The characters had depth and raw emotions that you could feel coming off the page. The story was sexy and adorable at the same time. I got very invested in Dylan (also known as Silver) and Sawyer and their love story that took so long to come to fruition.

Dylan was weak in many ways. She let her parents rule her schooling,

I bought this book after participating in a book blitz for it. I loved the beautiful winter pictures and this book sounded just awesome. For quite some time I forgot about this book again until I picked up the Untamed series which Victoria Green co-writes with Jinsey Reese. Thanks to me being stupid and forgetting my Kobo cable I couldn't put the new episode on my e-reader and I decided to pick up Victoria's other book instead.

Dylan Silver graduated and is heading off to med school in the fall. For a much needed break she goes to a cabin in the mountains with her best friend and brother. The last person she expects to see is Sawyer Carter. Silver has been in love with Sawyer since she first met him when she was 8 years old. They became secret best friends and stood by each other no matter the consequence until six years ago.

I wanted to read Silver Heart from the first time I heard about it, around the time of the release. Several fellow bloggers raved about Green's debut New Adult novel, and I'm glad I read Silver and Sawyer's story and gave it, and them, a chance. Unlike some other new adult books that have let me down, Silver Heart was a fun read, with a focus on learning to be who you want to be.

Let's talk about the characters first. I really liked Silver (although the constant use of her last name as a nickname

I think new adult is one is the one genre where readers have their favorite authors, and if they want to try anything new it takes a lot of high reviews or praise from fellow authors in order to convince someone to read said book. So when I say that this is one not to skip, believe me. It is definitely one that readers should add to their shelves.
