This book was enjoyable (mostly) for me. 👍 However, I just don't think I am the target audience for this genre. 😂 All anyone did in this book was party, drink, smoke weed and have sex lives worthy of forty-year-olds. 👀 Not to mention the ridiculous amount of catty mean girl OW drama. 😈 It left me rolling my eyes a lot... 👀


That said, a lot of the above stuff lessened in the second half of the book (thankfully) and from there on out I found it a much more likable read. 🙌 It was well wri

This was a really good book! It took me a little bit to connect to the characters but once I did, it was a sweet love story. There are not that many NA books that are set in a high school setting and I really liked how the author gave the book a feel of what actually happens in high school and not make it a young adult version which most high school settings are in other books. I liked the growth of Averie. I liked how she matured through the book and learned

This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster and really tugs on the heartstrings. The writing was so vivid that I could picture every scene. It gives you all the feels and makes you feel everything. It was such a page turner and I could not put it down. I just loved the characters and felt that Averie and Ashton just clicked from the very start and I loved reading about their story together and watching them both grow.

This book ticked all the boxes. The angst, the drama, the fun moments, the

I love Casey Diam writing I'm a big fan. This book can be very emotional and heartbreaking at times. Averie has had a hard year. To make it easier her mom decides she needs to start over. Her mom knows nothing about Averie or what's good for her. Poor Averie had been alone for along time other than her bestie Nickky.

Ash sees Averie and he is shocked to see her. The girl he always wanted from afar. Now she is near him and he can't stop wanting her. You will fall in love with Ash as I did. I can't

I am so over the moon right now! I inhaled this book faster than a Snickers bar. This book elicited so many different feelings and when I finished the last page I was so satisfied.

The characters in this story are ones that will embed themselves in your heart. While Ash and Averie were both incredible characters, I also loved that

I really loved Averie and Ashton together they were a great couple. Averie had lost someone and the good girl had gone a little bad as she tried to cope with her feelings. Along comes Ashton and we get to see a friendship turn to romance but Ashton is hiding something. Averie deals with this all well, Ashton really helps her and then he goes and has a 'man' moment and pushes her away big style. Luckily we do get a HEA so all good! The secondary characters are all very likeable and I look for

Averie is the new girl at school, but she is not new to Ashton, he noticed this strikingly beautiful girl a long time ago. She captured his attention during a football game with his rival team, and from that point on she has constantly found a way to slip into his thoughts. But it is evident that his beautiful little distraction is slipping of out of control, she's just on the edge of completely losing herself. He knows her painful past, that she has faced an unimaginable loss in the last year, ...more

This book was so good. There was a ton of emotion and it just kept me wanting to drive the long way around everywhere I went because I didn’t want to get out of the car and have to stop listening.

At first I wasn’t enjoying the drugs and alcohol parts because it is high school students. But when you realize that it is part of the story and she will learn from it and be where she won’t need it anymore, it all worked okay for me.

There was a lot with both her family and also the people in the school

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‘Can You Hear It’, by Casey Diam, was an emotional roller coaster of a novel for me! While reading this book I experienced an array of emotions from extreme love to irreparable loss, followed by forbidden love and a double dose of angst.

This is the first book I’ve read by Casey Diam and I was pleasantly surprised. The writing was incredible and the emotions came across very relatable.

No spoilers must read this book for yourself!!! I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t emphas

Casey is a new author to me and even after just one book I'm a huge fan.

I love when books intrigue me to the point that I can't put them down. Averie and Ashton were believable and relatable characters. The author wrote their stories with such depth and passion I defy you not to fall in love with them.

Averie's pain is like a living breathing entity, it's in all her actions and every decision she makes. Ashton is the star quarterback who's keeping secrets. I really loved then together, the way

Really loved this story! Sexy and angsty. So good!

"Every cell in my body reacted to Ash all the time. He consumed every part of me, even when I wasn't with him."

When tragedy strikes Averie Mozey's life, she ends up moving to a new school for her senior year. Her life has been secretly spiralling out of control until she meets Ashton Haigen - her reaction to him is like nothing she's ever experienced before. Unbeknownst to her, Ashton has long held a torch for Averie but never thought he'd have

I don't normally read high school romances, but this one is a true gem. It's emotional, heartfelt, tragic, beautiful, inspiring, and shows just how many hardships teenagers go through. No matter your age, heartbreak can change us all, an this book did a really good job at showing that.

Averie is trying to piece her life back together after being completely devestated, but her grief has her acting in ways that are so unlike her. When she meets Ashton she recognizes the pain in his eyes but refuse
Steph (A Brunette and Her Books)
Wow. Wow. Wow.  This book had all the feels, and still leaves me speechless.  When Averie's world is turned upside down, she turns to drugs and alcohol to ease her pain.  Nothing makes sense anymore.  Why bother living if the love of your life has left you in the most horrific way?

Enter Ashton, who is bound to prove to Averie that her life is worth something.  Ashton has always wanted Averie, and now he has to show her that she is the one for him, and that he will help her heal all her pain and

Ever unable to resist a football romance, I was drawn to this alluring mix of football, YA/NA, angst-fest based on the blurb and the cover alone, and so I had to take a chance on this new-to-me author.


It did not disappoint!

There’s something in the way Ms. Diam has written her characters that was positively addictive to me. The storyline was occasionally a little bumpy for me, but I attached quickly and fiercely to the characters. And not even just Averie and Ashton, whose story was – as pro

What an intense story. Taking place, Averie and Ashton’s senior year of high school, the two fight their attraction to one another. She is broken, lost, in self destruct mode after losing her childhood sweetheart in a tragic twist of fate. He is an up and coming football star living with hIs own demons. I had a hard time putting the book down, I needed to find out what would happen next. I just loved the way the story flowed and how they both fought their attraction to one another but ultimately ...more

This book has had me smiling and crying, had my heart beating faster and torn in two. Such an emotional ride. The writing was so vivid that I could see every scene in my mind's eye.

I was totally empathetic to Averie and I suffered with her. She was dealt a Huge blow and had no one to turn to for comfort, so sad. I fell in love with Ashton right along with her.

Ashton has his reasons for wanting to stay away from the girl of his dreams; they are valid but really? Why not just be happy? What a sw

Prepare to be swept off your feet! The slowburn romance from strangers to friends to lovers between Averie, heartbroken after tragedy struck and Ashton, football quarterback with a secret will captivate you.
The author knows how to make you forget that there is a world outside this book. It was impossible to put it down.

This book is so good. It has everything that makes a 5 star book , love, laughter, angst, really great characters and of course a good storyline that keeps you turning the pages. Averie really has no one in her family to help her grieve the loss of James, she turns to drugs and alcohol. Asher is a straight laced quarter back, doesn’t do drugs or alcohol, eats right takes care of his body but is hiding a secret. When they meet it’s instant attraction.

I just loved this heart warming novel! Seeing these characters come alive and overcome their past is amazing. The portrayal of ash and Averie together is perfect. Hearing and feeling the pain of Averie’s past is gut wrenching. But seeing the growth and the love of ash and Averie is perfection. Sublime perfection!

Those were the root of all evil. One of those became the root of mine the day I lost the love of my life. My best friend. My lover.
Everyone disregarded it, saying, “Let’s face it, Averie, you have the rest of your life ahead of you.” They were wrong. James Lawrence was my ever after . . . until Ashton.
If only he didn’t come bearing his own brand of evil.
A secret.

Wow. I have always loved Casey Diam, but this book just made her so much more for me. I loved how she has created real life problems. It’s not just a romance - it’s a story of letting people help you and overcome fears. She has a masterpiece that will extract every emotion you have. This author deserves more than 5 stars for this book.

She brings you a YA based novel, but gives them much more. They are such amazing, strong people. Their emotion and feelings - along with their chemistry leaps off

“I devoured this story. Can You Hear It plot was addictive and explosive. I stopped until the end. Drama, angst and heartbreaking moments. A story so well-developed and written storyline packed with all the feels. The book is set in high school, Casey writing skills amazed me, the way she wrote how things exactly happen at school was marvelous, very pure, unique and authentic.

Averie faced hard times through the story but she matured and I really enjoyed how she growth and deal with her problems
