Love can be a beautiful thing.
It can fill up your life with the warmth of its embrace and spread to every corner of your mind.
It can quiet your soul.
But when that love turns wrong, it warps into something bitter and unrecognizable.
The pain of it promises unyielding noise in place of that half-remembered silence.
Lexie has lived with this pain for four years, pouring it

Coming at you on September 2nd!! I finally get to give Killian & Lexie the HEA they deserve. We get to see how far the band has come and how fame has changed the teenagers we met in Echoes of Silence. What hasn't changed, is how Killian & Lexie feel about each other. It's just a lot more complicated.
I can't wait to share this story with you all.

If you read my review or heard anything about book one, Echoes of You you know for certain that I fell in love with the book as well as Lexie and Killian But really I fell in love with them in Mia and Zane's book. I knew they were special and I knew if we got their story it would be epic. I had very high standards for this book, I had many exceptions and many wants and yes demands(not really well.... kind of lol) This couple was so special to me, they weren't just words on a page they were real ...more

This was a satisfying conclusion to Killian and Lexcie's story. I am hoping for a potential Wyatt and Emma novel. I'm pretty curious about what's going on there. They seem to have something there.

As for our main couple, I was happy with all of the loose ends being tied in this and seeing both protagonists grow and develop into more well rounded and fully whole individuals. After all they've been through, it was about damn time. Was so satisfying too to get extra goodies on them too. It made me f

I couldn't put this down, especially with all the characters I love showing up! I love the bikers and I love the band members. I really hope Sam and the boys get their own books. I also hope there is a spin off series with the new California chapter. And I need Lucky's story...he and Bex were together, but I haven't read that yet!!! Keep writing Ms. Malcolm!! ...more

The story I wanted

This was the story I thought I was getting in the first book. Glad I got it. Lexie at times got on my nerves, but I over looked it. Have to say and I cringe to say it and anyone who reads this is going to roll their eyes and say, “Seriously, she said that!” The story had a tad Bella/Edward theme. Yes the know it all guy who leaves because it is better this way and the stupid girl who believes the guy and gets tore up about it. Then the drama to get back to the love commences. O

What can I say?!? Anne is an awesome writer and this book was a good solid read. I always love that she has good solid male characters and kickbutt women. There were two reasons why this wasn't 5 stars for me. One, I did think the storyline was a bit predictable and two, I did have a hard time viewing Lexie as an adult (between her being a child in the two previous books and simply the way she acted). Overall, though a thoroughly enjoyable read. ...more

This book takes place four years after Echoes of Silence. It shows us where both Lexie and Killian are in life. So many feelings in this book. Their story broke my heart and put it back together again. I absolutely adore these characters and their honest, flawed portrayals. The author doesn't sugarcoat anything and as a reader I'm grateful for that. This book is dark in places, definitely emotional but it's also beautiful. The love between Killian and Lexie is stuff of legends. Their affection, ...more

Wow! I loooved this fantastic conclusion to Killian and Lexie’s story. They’ve both grown and changed so much, but their chemistry remains just as strong, their passion just as hot! I also really enjoyed hanging with all my favorite character from Sons of Templar. Highly recommend the Sons, Greenstone, and Unquiet Mind series! They all tie in together and feature all the characters that you will just LOVE!

An emotional yet suspenseful conclusion to this fantastic story. I absolutely love Killian. Sacrifice and redemption at its best. Their chemistry is off the charts! Devoured in a day. I highly recommend this must read.

5 BEAUTIFUL HARD STARS!! Love can be so hard, but that is what makes it worth while. Killian and Lexie's love is broken and I felt it in my bones and my heart hurt so bad. These two broken beautiful souls, need each in so many ways. Their story will hit all your emotion buttons. You definitely need to read book 1 in this series first before this Book. This story is a must read for any romance read who likes hard love stories. ...more

Skeletons of Us continues where Echoes of Silence ended. The second book in the Unquiet Mind -series. I read the book in one sitting, Anne Malcom knows how to hold the reader's interest.

“I had to let you go, so you could fly and so I could stay in the life that was the only one I could live in without you.” (39% Kindle edition). This is how Killian explains his actions to Lexie, and it takes a while before Lexie understands the meaning behind those words. It takes almost the whole book, a coupl

This is part two of Lexi and Killian. It is a fantastic conclusion. There are lots of appearances from the band and the rest of the MC family which is amazing.

So Lexi's life is endangered due to her famous lifestyle and Killian uses it as an opportunity to insert himself back into her life. I loved the fact that despite all his advances she doesn't just fall back into his arms, as if she couldn't resist, she fights him and its a fine balance between too much fight or not enough with these sort o

"Who knew you could fall for someone twice? Once when you were young and naive and love was a beautiful thing and falling was glorious. And a second time when you were older and knew better and the fall was full of pain and suffering and the result was still the same."

Lexie, lead singer of Unquiet Mind, broken from a troubled past, learns trouble lurks and brings the past that broke her right to her doorstep. That painful past includes Knights of Templar MC, namely her first love, Killian. Banni

Oh dear god kill me now

This book hit and stabbed every feminist button I possess. Which is actually difficult to do! I'm not ashamed I'm not that big on "Girl Power!" or cutting off my nose just to spite my face. I like men opening doors for me, I grew up with my Dad cranking up the car so Mom and I could get in a toasty vehicle, I don't believe in splitting the check in the beginning of a relationship, if there are heavy things I'll gladly let a guy carry them instead - but I also have a gun an
Skeletons of Us is the sequel to the first book in this series, and it was a lot better than the first one to me.

In this one, Lexie's in a lot of danger, and when the club finds out Killian will do everything in his power to keep her safe, and get her back in his life. He's finally seeing the damage he did to her four years ago, and he's kicking himself for hurting her so much.

And Lexie doesn't trust Killian, she's so scared to get hurt again, but she also can't seem to stay away from him eith

Lexie is the lead singer of Unquiet Mind, a small town band that made it big, I mean HUGE. What happens to all big time rockstars? Crazy, stalker fan! Who better to run to her rescue than the man that broke her heart, the demon she's been running from for the last 4 years...

Killian, the rough and gorgeous boy turned man that gave up his entire world so she could live her dreams. He's at the ready when word gets out that Lexie's in trouble. Regardless of what anyone else thinks of him, nobody wil

2 hearts, 2 souls, a love so true and strong.....broken.

How do you get over that? If your Lexie and Killian, you dont.

This book is the 2nd part to their story, a bit older, a bit wiser and still broken.

This book is bloody marvellous....I thought Echoes was great but this second part to the duet takes the prize! These 2 books together made me much emotion, love and angst. If you love reading then you will buy these books!

Goes down as another off my 2017 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book about music or musicians. Broken hearts and souls on both sides with Lexie and Killian so lets hope second time around is the last. Have to agree with one thing Killian said about how easily she believed five minutes of lies after two years of truth with him constantly telling her how much she meant to him. As soon as she really accepts this she can finally see why he did it. Doesn’t mean he wasn’t a complete plank for doing it i ...more

Skeletons of Us is book two in the Unquiet Mind series by Author Anne Malcom. It is best enjoyed when reading book one first, as this is a continuation of Lexie and Kill’s story. But, it is also a great idea to back up and read the Sons of Templar series so that you get a proper introduction to this couple.

I have not finished the SOT series, but when I knew Lexie and Kill had a separate story (actually two) dedicated to them, I HAD to read them. My first introduction to Lexie and Kill was as te

Oh my freaking goodness. What an amazing follow up for Lexie and Killian.

This book had it all and so much more. I freaking love this couple and their story ripped me up. Their love for one another was one I enjoyed reading even when my heart was ripping apart before being put back together.

You couldn't ask for more with these two books along side the Sons of Templar series. Best buy ever and taking the leap into the world created by this amazng author, Anne Malcolm.

Skeletons of Us continues the story of the two characters Lexie and Killian. These two characters I had instantly loved within the first book and could not get enough off. I loved the suspense of this story and the emotion that was written within this story.

My heart completely broke for Lexie and the heartbreak that she experiences throughout the story. I loved the relationship she had with her mum and with the members of her band. I found her to be a strong female character that endured a lot o

What do you do when the love of your life comes back into your life after three years apart? Not only is he in your life but he staking his claim on you again. WTF! Killian let Lexie go so she could soar but he wasn't about to let her be harmed by some crazy stalker.

Lexie isn't that worried about the stalker and she definitely doesn't want Killian around but she does it to placate her mom and stepdad. So he is back in her life, no one said she had to like or to talk to him.
