She whispers my name at night, filling my dreams with her haunting beauty.

Her tormented amber eyes beg me for something I don’t understand, and her agonizing pain becomes my own.

For years, she’s come to me, calling my name.

For years, I’ve never known who she was.

Until now…

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 a

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.

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.

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
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

Way too much predictable. Apenas iba en la pag 60 y ya sabia todo todo lo que había pasado, solo me quedaba saber como había ocurrido, eso volvió un poco aburrida la historia, que por demás es bastante over the top. O sea los protagonistas son como el coyote, les pasa de todo, y el villano se sale con la suya por varios años. No voy a decir absolutamente nada de la trama, y les aconsejo no leer mas reseñas para que vayan a ciegas, que aunque el libro es tan predecible el leer las reseñas lo vuel ...more

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.
I loved
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

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

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 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

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!

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

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

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.

The first book I read by this author blew me away. So I went for a second book and I was not only blown away but sucked in at tornado speed, spun and left reeling. This 6 star story has it all. Suspense, romance at it’s best, protective male and some supernatural of some sort.

Luca has been dreaming about a women for years, not knowing who she was until by chance he finds her. That’s all I’m going to say. This is the kind of story that needs to be experienced without spoilers.

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

An unusual plot with a very twisty story

The first third of the book was a little slow, scoring more of a 'like' rating (3 stars). However the remainder was much more captivating, gaining 4 stars, so overall I'd rate this as 3.75 stars.

This is a well written and intriguing stand alone, romantic suspense with compelling dreams and forgotten secrets. Whilst there is some violence, and an attempted assault on the heroine I really wouldn't classify this as a dark read, since these acts aren't betwee

I loved this book. It was a keep you on your toes kind of book. Rooting for the good guy, except you weren’t sure who that really was. Only reason I couldn’t 5 Star this book is I figured it out early on BUT it still kept me

This is one of those books that really make you think and question everything.

For the past 6 years, Luca has dreamed of a girl. He can’t see her face, but he can hear her. Every night is the same, as he walks towards her she gets brighter and when he finally makes it to her, searing pain encompasses his sexy-as-sin-wrapped-in-tattoos body.
