I received this ARC for an honest review

This is S E Cooper’s first book and I am amazed at her level of writing, story telling and ability to pull you in.

I couldn't put this book down and each time I had to I was not a happy woman. I loved it and cannot encourage you, shout at you and plead with you to take a chance and read this book. You will not be disappointed.

You want all the stories that can come from Ari and Lane. You want Big’s, Kerr’s and everyone's stories.

I believe that every one of us has a moment in our lives, which truly defines us. Be it a chance encounter, that makes your heart beat a little faster than it ever has before, a leap of faith into the unknown with no idea whether there will be someone there to catch you, or a split-second decision that changes the way you live your life forever.

People in this industry commonly refer to the bereft feeling they have after finishing a good book and the sudden return to the real world, as a “book hangover”. S.E. Cooper has taken that to a whole new level.

It has been forty-eight hours since I finished reading Silhouette and I’m going through withdrawal. I have the shakes, the nausea and the muscle spasms. I need a prescription for Literary Methadone, if it exists. The funny thing is, I look forward to the relapse. And relapse I will, time a

I received a copy of Silhouette from S.E Cooper and I’m voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review.

This is S.E Cooper’s debut novel this shocked me as I feel like this novel was simply fantastic and for a first novel I didn’t feel like it lacked anything when I was reading it. I must say that I will now be reading all of S.E’s books and she is fast becoming one of my favourite authors.

This wonderful story is about Ari and Lane. Ari is a young lady who had witnessed ALOT in her childhood

I find myself saying this often but, again, I have to repeat myself--One of the biggest benefits of being involved with this blog is getting opportunities to read new authors early in their career. It is so exciting to find people with the talent of S.E. Cooper. Silhouette is so captivating; it reminds me why I constantly look for requests to read new authors.

There's a new voice in romantic suspense and you will want to remember her name, SE Cooper. Her debut novel, Silhouette is an amazing read. Her hero and heroine are each beautifully broken and through more than a series of unfortunate events, they find each other, and perhaps the piece that will mend their souls. This new author shows a wonderful ability to plot and subplot, which gives rise to even more questions and plot lines, all of which are beautifully crafted and resolved. Her characters ...more

An impressive, nice meaty story that kept my attention beginning to end. The writing flows, reads easy, is smart, inserts hints of humor and feels seasoned—making it hard to believe this is SE Cooper’s first book!

The trope is one I really like for a romantic suspense novel; The protector turned lover.

Lane and Ari make a believable couple. Their union is not exactly an easy one. It’s far from encouraged from all sides, and aside from battling their own misgivings, they also have to contend

So I'm a little bit in disbelief and awe at what I have just read, the fact that this beautiful flowing book was written by a debut author !

The level of complexity and knowledge, the creation of sub plots within the actual plots is awesome, especially as it draws you in and swallows you up whole. Each and every character is unique and beautifully crafted to exist from the smallest part to the main characters each with an importance at their particular junction without prejudice.

Wow! What a debut novel this book was. From the first Chapter of Silhouette by S.E. Cooper and I was hooked. I'm not going to lie, I don't take to new authors this quick. I'm a little old school. It takes me time before I fan girl over an author!

We have Ari, who is one hot kick ass tattooing lady! I love that she's a tattoo artist. We have also have ourselves one hot alpha man with Lane Hunter. Oh even his name is hot! When these two get together in not so great circumstan

Clarissa is a spunky beautiful young woman, a tattoo artist. But she hides a lot of horrors and truths, including her real identity. She is surrounded by few people, trusts no one completely except, Jack, who has raised her since her parents murders, Marcus who she’s grown up with and Marcus’s father, Bruno.

I really really enjoyed this book. From the minute I picked it up, I found it difficult to put down. The style of writing is easy and just flows and the author has you hooked every chapter.

I loved all the characters but Lane is my favourite. He is everything a man should be and more. Clarissa is lovely also but at times she can be a little bit over the top. However she has every reason to be the way she is. There are many other loveable characters. Kerr, Marcus, Big, pl

This book was wow. I laughed, I cried, I raged and I loved! This book had it all! It's a longer book but so much happens! It's one of those that you can see a movie being based of it!

Clarissa (Ari) is just trying to stay under the radar so her guardian stops hiring bodyguards to protect her. Until something happens and she's smack dab in the crosshairs. But Lane is there to help.

And that's all I'm saying because there is just SO much that happens and it would be a spoiler-packed review otherwi

A debut novel? I can't believe this is a debut novel. SE Cooper is an author to watch. She has good plotting skills and creates multi-dimensional characters that you will love.

Now that was a turbulent story that still has me spinning. There was so much in this story that held me to my seat reading like a mad woman, I had to know what was going to happen next. While the main plot of the story is completely involving, SE managed to pull in some small side plots just as a little bonus. Her characters will draw you in and make you feel at home.

This book have to be noticed for more readers. In my assessment, SE Cooper is a great writer. She nows how to keep you wanting more. Her writing is perfectly clear. I loved Lane and Ari. A fabulous couple. Lane is determinated, sexy, restless, and showed the beautiful side of his love for the family. Ari could look a weak person, but is not. After everything she've been through, she kept up right. Caring about all the people that loved her. And giving everything she could.

This is a debut novel by S E Cooper, for a first book this is brilliant!
The story follows Ari and Lane and is full of angst, drama and hotness!
The start completely drew me in a I couldn't stop reading to begin with. I lagged a little towards the middle but that could have just been because I've been super busy!
For me I did find the pacing a little difficult and at times I felt like some scenes were so in depth when they didn't need to be. But as I say, for a debut novel, it was

It's very hard to write a review when you're speechless but I really am.
This is S.E. Coopers debut and what a stunner it was. The blurb had me hooked so when I dived in it was an instant ' I'm really gonna love this book' and I really did.
The plot was different and intriguing, the story quite fast paced and the characters both endearing and engaging. Both Lane and Ari...the main characters here...were very well written and I loved them both...Ari was strong and such a beautiful soul and Lane...h

A very well written story with surprising storyline and plot. Characters are well described and develops nicely through the story. It has mystery, drama, action, love, passion and emotional ups and downs in it. But the twists are those who keeps you on the edge and just want to read on.
Captivating from first to last chapter.
The steam and emotions flows of the pages and keeps you on the edge. It is written in dual POV, which gives the reader a lot more of the feelings and thoughts of the main ch

Every so often a writer comes along and grabs your attention so hard you forget about the world around you, for the first time in a long while, that happened to me reading this debut novel.

The author manages to capture your heart and mind making you want to be Ari and find your own Lane, there were times that I wanted to put the book down because I thought what I wanted to happen might not, but pick it straight back up again to make sure it did.

The flow of the story is beautiful, pulling you in,

From page one of this book you knew that you were in for a great suspense story, I couldn't wait to turn the pages to see what was going to happen next. It was easy to read with twists and turns that you just did not expect. It was witty, romantic, and emotional, which had you smiling, chuckling, teary eyed, and gave you a lump in your throat. The main characters, family and friends, you warmed to easily, and even had you falling in love with the lead male and a couple of others!! It was a book ...more

I was asked to read an ARC of this book for an honest review.

This is the debut book from this author and if this is what she's gonna be creating then she's fast gonna become one of my favourites.

This story is about Lane and Ari, and their fight to be together. Their love is so powerful but it would seem that not many are happy about their relationship. Just as things seem to be settling life jumps in and throws everything upside down. Is their love powerful enough to save, not only them, but a

This was a great book with an amazing storyline.
The lead characters had chemistry to spare and I kinda borrowed some while reading it (#SorryNotSorry)

The multitude of supporting characters made it hard for me to fully immerse myself in this story but based on the raving reviews that might simply be my fault for being scatterbrained at the moment.

If you enjoy thrillers, romance, and seriously hot books, then this should definitely be your next read!

Silhouette grabbed me from the start and wholly moly what a mother of an emotional roller coaster. I wasn't sure I could hold on until the end. I never saw the twists and turns coming, my heart skipped and I was consumed with the pain and sadness Lane and Clarissa tried to heal in one another. Fast paced, sexy and full of great characters I hope to read their stories soon. Kept my on the edge of my seat and gave me a super satisfying epilogue.

I loved this book. The characters are complex as is the story, and both pull you in. It was one of those books that you want to read quickly but at the same time you want to take your time as you don't want it to end.
I fell in love with all of the characters not just the main ones and I'm hoping we get further books so we can find out all of their secrets.
This book has you laughing one minute and crying the next as well as biting at your nails in angst.
A fantastic 5* read

OMG I really can't believe how amazing this book is as a debut!!!!
S E COOPER you are fantastic!!! I was seriously hooked from the first few pages and hated having to put it down!
The story of Ari & Lane was complicated with a lot of ups and downs but would their love survive?
I will definitely be reading all you bring out and can't wait for book 2 in this series to come out!
