This is my first book from this writer and I will sure check her other books.


This is the story of two lovers who loved each other fiercely but were separated from one another for a long time (7 years) after a few tragic events that happened out of their control.

Sadly, they don’t know they are apart; they aren’t even aware of it; therefore, they don’t know they need to find their way back to each other. However, their epic love knows no boundaries
Bookworm Extraordinaire

I generally enjoy this author's writing a lot, and I really liked her book PITCH DARK which I would classify as being along the same lines as this book. Unfortunately, this one didn't grab my attention as well as that book. I found it to be way too long and slow moving. Part of the problem was that I figured out the big twist very early on which then made certain aspects bothersome for me. None of which I can get into without spoiling the entire book. Let's just say I found certain situations a

I adored "The Sinister Silhouette" By Alex Grayson.
This is my first book by this particular author, but it definitely won't be my last.
No sir-ee; I am certainly going to be having a mooch around to see what else this fantastically talented author has to offer.
But first; yes I did figure out the twists here.
And Second; I'm so sorry; I can't really elaborate any further on said twists as this would spoil the whole experience for you.

When I read that blurb, I was beyond intrigued, because seriously it. is. amazing. So when this book came on my kindle, I was already salivating for this, even though I'd never read Alex Grayson before I had this sixth-sense that this was gonna be awesome.

And it was.

Luca was a twenty-something tattooist, who was pretty close to his family. About seven years ago, he was in an accident, and for about six years since, he has been dreaming of this woman who calls out to him to save her- on

Favorite Quotes:

If any man other than Theo threatened me like that, I’d drop him faster than a whore drops her panties when she sees a hundred-dollar bill.

I’m terrified, hopeful, and anxious all at the same time, and there’s no hope of the trio of feelings going away anytime soon.

She beams a smile at me and it fills my heart with so much love I can feel the seams stretching to accommodate it all.

Okay? Where do I begin! The beginning the middle or the end cause I have to say this. I am so freaking happy that I took a chance on this book and I never expected with the way it turned out or how the author will leave you guessing or twisted or even clueless like you don’t know one end from another. Lol. But, to say the least the blurb the book cover image (which is so beautiful) does not do justice to how amazing the writing of this story is so again I’ll leave it to you imagination pick it b ...more

I understand plots like this are unique, and no one person is in the wrong etc but for me this is just an author twisting themselves into a pretzel to make sure the heroine isnt allowed to have sex or pleasure while the hero is allowed too. You can dress it up as much as you want but it's always blatantly obvious that the plot reasons chosen are simply to create that dynamic of sexually satisfied hero with a celibate/virgin heroine so I'll pass ...more

Wow. I’m just so excited for this story where the hero is a manwhore , cheating in his wife for 7 years, and his wife stays celibate. What a completely original idea 🙄 this hasn’t already been done 6,500 times thus year... I hope you read that will of the sarcasm it was intended . Try writing something original instead of following the trend of cheating manwhores to sell your story, and I could actually be interested.
A book that makes my heart beat too fast, has my nerves on edge and brings tears to my eyes deserves 5 stars - that's this book.

I was tempted to leave my review at the above statement but it needs more words.

This story features a perfect family, Luca, Ella and Theo and little Aria along with the supportive and caring mum and dad. A mum and dad that are still in love after their kids are grown - as I said perfect.

Luca is the main man, his a tattooist? is that a word? Oh well he does tattoos in hi

Holy Amazeballs what a book!
This book sucked me in from the start.
Once I started read I COULD NOT put in down. Kept reading till 5 in the morning.
The characters Luca,Theo and Jules are incredible.
As well as all the secondary characters.
The three main characters had my head spinning.
Who’s who and what in the hell is happening!
I didn’t know anything about the book except what I read in the blurb.
Some books are best appreciated going in blind and The Sinister Silhoute is one of those books.

If I start to write I will give so much spoilers. If ı hold myself back how ı will explain my feelings about book and its characters..

You must read it ASAP!!!!!

You will love Luca
You will adore Jules!
Aria is incredible sweet and deserves to meet.
There are lots of tragic events in their life. Unfairness of fate and lost 7 years make their life lika a hell. But their love specially Luca's strenght and Jules's belief creates amazing love story full of kaleydescope feelings

Wow, this book was fantastic.
I have read most of Alex books and I will have to say this is my favourite and I have loved all this author's books.
It is different from any of her other books it is emotional and intense and the story just keeps you turning the pages to try and find out what is going happen, It is very well written. I was hooked from the start.

What would you do if you turn a corner and come face to face with the man/woman of you've been dreaming about?
I'd sure as hell freak out, because the dreams were so vivid, you could hear them calling to you, whispering your name. Luca is a tattoo artist from the wrong side of tracks. The other world is rich , affluent, privileged world of Jules. But hearts tug and names are whispered and the crazy chemistry just pulls them together.
The strangest thing happens and the story becomes so intriguing

Wow! What an intense and unforgettable book. The blurb immediately grabbed my interest. The first chapter had me hooked. The entire time I was reading my mind was trying to piece together the mystery.
This is the first book I've read by Alex Grayson and I am looking forward to exploring more of her work. I'm still reeling from the emotional roller coaster I've been on throughout reading this book. The storyline is fresh and one of a kind. This is definitely not a cookie cutter romance. Get ready
I liked this. The romance was good. Luca and Jules had an undeniable attraction. It was ridiculous that both Luca and Jules had anmensia from separate incidents about the same time period. What are the chances of that? Once Theo revealed what happened, I instantly knew who the real bad guy was. It was so predictable. It was easy to figure out when one guy acted like a complete dick and the other was always nice. I wasn't sure but guessed the truth about Aria long before it was revealed. The thin ...more

This one will keep you up at night wondering at what will happen next!

The writing was excellent and I loved the story. I was gripped almost instantly and couldnt put it down. Thrill, fear, love and obsession all mixed up to form one hell of a potent concoction.

While this was a dual pov novel it had a heavier focus on Luca and his pov, which I actually loved, it was a nice change from being predominantly a female pov. I was drawn very quickly to his character and into his story, the torture, loss

I received the ARC in exchange for a honest review.

Wow!!! I though Pitch Dark was great but The Sinister Silhouette blew that out of the water! I don’t think I loved a book this much since I read Forever Right Now by Emma Scott last year. This is now in my top 3 moving Pitch Dark to #4 in my list. It has to be Alex’s best book yet. There are so many twists and turns that you have no idea which end is up. My suspicions midway through came to fruition in the end but this book is worth everything!

I can’t tell you how happy I am that a friend turned me on to Alex Grayson, because let me just say that she totally writes outside of the box in the very best of ways. It is refreshing! Can it be a little dark? Yes, but that’s what makes it all work! It’s so hard to give a review beyond how amazing and cool I think this story is without giving anything away so I will tread lightly.

OUTSTANDING! A truly captivating read that had me on the edge from page one.

Alex Grayson is a fantastic writer but this book...the descriptive writing literally placed me there. She managed to bring Jules, Luca and Aria alive.

This is a book that drove me crazy with adrenaline while reading. It’s long and amazingly well written. The drama, the sinister silhouette that’s lurking, the need to protect, cherish and’s all in there.

This is a standalone and I’m happy to report it has the be

Alex Grayson has talent in taking a story and weaving it so beautifully that you can’t stop reading until you’ve turned the last page and exhale.

Lucas is every woman’s dream alpha. Takes care of what is his, even takes care of what isn’t his. Covered in tattoo’s and piercings. Works out and takes care of his body. Loves his family and would do anything to protect them.

Ohhh Y'all...this book consumed my life for 24 hours!!! I had to know what the Hell was going to happen next!!!

The Sinister Silhouette, in my opinion, is one of those books you don't tell too much in your review

Wow this book was a great read. This was my first read by Alex Grayson so, I didn't know what to expect. This one was a page turner right from the beginning. Luca is a good guy. He doesn't come from money but knows the value and importance of family. He has dreams of a girl that calls his name. He doesn't know this girl or what she wants of him. If his dream aren't weird enough he actually see the woman who haunts his dreams. That's where the story gets twisty and suspenseful. It's the type of b ...more

I’ve read previous books by this author but this is definitely by favourite so far. This is truly an amazing and beautiful read.

Who is the woman visiting Luca in her dreams?? What follows is a fast paced read where secrets come out and the truth is revealed.

This book consumed me. When I wasn’t reading it I was thinking about it. It sucked me up from start to finish.
