Live Out Loud
I'll never be able to hear, but music has always been a source of comfort for me. Rather than listen to the rhythm, I can actually feel the beat pulsing through me. It's pure bliss. So the moment I saw Thorin playing his guitar, I was mesmerized. I'd never seen anything more beautiful . . . or intimate. I coul ...more
Overall Opinion: I love the stories of one character having a disability and the other not, and them finding love in each other regardless -- and I got that here. The H was damaged from his childhood, but he was so darn sweet with the h! It might've been hinted at that he was a manwhore before the h, but he sure didn't act like it. He was all about the h from the start, and it touched my heart when he was eager to learn ASL for her to help them communicate better!
It definitely wasn't a ...more
I really liked this book a lot. I decided to read this book because I really enjoyed the last book that I read by this author and I ended up liking this book just as much. This is a romance that just feels real which is really nice. I also loved the fact that this story is set in my hometown of St. Louis because it is really wonderful to see familiar landmarks worked into a story. This was a book that I was able to read for hours at ...more
Live Out Loud by Marie Meter was a beautiful and heartfelt read.
The storyline was well written, the plot held my interest all throughout the book and I really liked Harper and Thorin/Thor.

Live Out Loud was a touching and heartfelt read and I highly recommend it.

I 100% loved Live Out Loud. Harper was my favourite character throughout the book. Harper is deaf and is training to become a pharmacist. the book is great inspiration for people who have disabilities proving that anything is possible. Without a doubt I would recommend Live Out Loud to everyone.
Marie Meyer is a new to me author, and when I stumbled upon her book I had to give it a try. I really enjoy stories where the characters have to work hard because of the communication barrier between them. Thorin had a passion for writing and making music and their connection grew as Harper could feel it through the beats of his music.
I loved they way that Thor went out of his way to prove how sincere he was at beginning a relationship with Harper. He want ...more
This beautifully crafted novel tells a poignant story of healing, hope and true love. The author wove her story with sensitivity and a great deal of talent.
Thor Kline is the guitarist of an up-and-coming rock band, and some serious eye candy! Harper King is studying to become a clinical pharmacist. Right from the start, I loved how Thor and Harper connected when they first met. They have apparently nothing in common, and yet they are able to understand one another and accept who they ar ...more

And as I hoped, I absolutely loved the female character. Harper is a strong and brilliant woman, that absolutely managed to impress me. Not only does she have troubles in this world because she is deaf, but also the relationship with her parents is really strained. When faced with another challenge, dating ...more
I loved this story. I loved the diversity between these two characters and how they overcame every obstacle that got in their way. They proved how anyone can overcome challenges in life and love as long as you are willing to put in the work and love someone despite their differences.
Harper was an awesome character. First and foremost she is deaf. Despite this fact she never let this get in her way. She is strong, works for what she wants, and do ...more
I cannot even put into words how much I loved this book. Thor and Harper needed each other... Need doesn't happen a lot in books to the point where it's true, but they really did. I loved how Thor slowly... Very slowly, opened up to Harper. It was what she needed in her life, and he needed her to breathe again. This story brings out what it means to truly fall in love with someone. I loved it. ...more

I loved it. As soon as read the blurb for this I just knew I had to read it and it did not disappoint.
A deaf girl falling for a rock star, had me hooked from the beginning. Thor is the best boyfriend, I love that he didn't care that Harper was deaf and how much he wanted to learn ASL for her. The epilogue was so good and so sweet.
A definite must read!! ...more
Harper King never thought she'd find someone that could understand her, especially not someone that can hear everything that goes on in the world when she can't. Except the moment she locks eyes with Thorin 'Thor' Kline during one of his musical performances at a bar, she believes she may have found a guy that sees her for her, instead of treating her differently because she's deaf. Can Thorin prove to Harper than he is her Mr. Right, or will Harper's fears tear them apart?

“A rarely touched kind of love story, 5 stars”
Harper is all about defying the odds. Ever since she was little people have handled her with kid gloves. Don’t do this, don’t do that. Someone may hurt you or your feelings. You may be smart but you wont make it. She’s herd it all but hasn’t let it stop her. Because she doesn’t see her deafness as a disability.
Thor is the typical bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. He’s a musican just trying to get his break. Then ...more

Well, let's start with the characters:
I loved Harper! She's relatable in tiny ways like... we both stress-eat ( *laughs sadly but tries to hide it* ), we both have a wonderful hot bestie (with the longest legs ever) that sometimes chooses a lying stupid piece of sh*it for a boyfriend (but it's ok that's what we're here for)... overall I liked her inner voice (the way she thinks and how the author portrayed it) and she reminds me of my bitch. <3
Oh and I liked that ...more

This is a contemporary romance story by this author. I really enjoyed this story, it was sweet with a different edge to it. The characters were fantastic, they had such an emotional connection. I was hooked from the first page and fell in love with the characters at the same time. I can't wait to read more from this author in the future.
I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book
I enjoyed this book. It was a story that was different and sweet. I just wished it was a little deeper. I never really felt the emotional connection between Thor and Harper. It felt like they could have used more of a "love" story. It was still sweet and I liked it, but it felt a little like something was missing. ...more
