This is a story of unspoken words and how loud they can be.

Connor Bourke and I met when we were twelve years old. He was a quiet boy with so much to say and only one way to say it—through song. He’d lost his best friend to cancer, so I showed him there was love and life in loss, and to hold on to his memories, always.

Eloise Mitchell was a blazing fire when my world

KM Golland, this book absolutely blew me away.

A wonderful story of first love, first heartbreak and finding a way back to each other over distance and time.

Connor and Eloise - "Ellie" had me drawn into their story from the very first word to the last last. Though I may have been reading those last words through leaking eyes!

Every turn of the page had me filled with another emotion. I laughed. I loved. I hurt.

There were twists and turns throughout the book that

Sobbing. That's what I'm doing right now, as I type these words using my keyboard and wipe snot off my nose for the umpteenth time since I started "Unspoken Words." I've never read any of K.M. Golland's work before, and I'm a little bit pissed that that's the case right now. A case that I'm rectifying as soon as my credit card company says it's okay for me to abuse my Amazon privileges again.

I have no words to describe this book, really. It's sort of like Jojo Moyes meets Nicholas Sparks meets

Okay...be prepared for a heck of a ride that will have you crying and wanting to stab a couple of people. And let me say that the jury is still out on Connor....

We all dream of finding our one true love and getting our HEA, but what happens when we our hearts are broken by the our one true love? Would you forgive them or would you walk away knowing that no matter how hard you try there is no way you can forget their betrayal?

Ellie was faced with that same situation and despite always loving

Since the author not only rated her book with 5 stars, but also said she loved it, I assume, thar the author condones cheating / despises women / writes from her own experience? / never heard of female self-respect and dignity.

Best-seller already???

Hands down my favorite KM Golland book!!
My #1 book of 2019 for sure!
Second chance romance books are my favorite, add in the element of angst with an emotional journey and you have my perfect Storm. This one NAILED IT!!
To say Connor and Ellie's relationship/story was an emotional roller coaster is an understatement because their highs were fantastic I smiled but their lows broke my heart.
I don't want to say to much because you need to read and experience every word of this amazing story for

This author was recommended to me, by a few people. So I finally took the recommendation and... Wow, I don't know what took me so long.

This book was EVERYTHING. I love an emotional read. I am a sucker for them and this beauty certainly held ALL THE FEELS!

It's a second-chance romance, filled to the top with angst, emotion, and passion that almost crippled me. I was a mess, but in the best ways ever... It grabbed hold of my heartstrings and tugged harder than I ever expected. I found myself

5 OF THE BIGGEST STARS IN THE UNIVERSE!

My #1 Book for 2019!

I have been a HUGE fan of KM for many years. Ever since I was asked to review her first book, Temptation. Since then, I don't have to know what her books are about to want to read them. She's just that author for me. If her name is on it, SIGN. ME. UP!
She draws me in with her addictive storylines, witty lingo, and staying true to her Aussie self.

Unspoken Words was no different, but at the same time, it was.
In the best way.

We meet Connor

I’m not sure I can find the words to express how much I loved this book as I’m not as talented in expressing myself in the written word as KM Golland is. This is the first book I read by Ms. Golland and wow!! I don’t believe I have ever highlighted so many passages in a book before to go back and read again and reflect on. Her words were like poetry, constructing an amazing story about Connor and Ellie that I will go back and read again. Although the story broke my heart many times, it also ...more

Wow. I am still trying to get a hold of my emotions after reading Unspoken Words. You know going into it based on the blurb that this is going to be a deeply emotional read, but you have NO CLUE! KM Golland did a fantastic job of creating her characters so REAL and RAW that you cannot help but be swept into the story and life that they are living.

There are happy times, there are sad times, there are hopeful times as Unspoken Words spans YEARS. This book is like an emotional roller coaster in the

In my opinion this has to be the best work and or story by KM Golland. I was expecting the normal light hearted books that make you giggle but that most certainly wasn't what I got. I mean I can't tell you anything about this book not a damn word.

Absolutely beautiful! Heartfelt, heart breaking and heart mending, Unspoken Words is a love story I will not easily forget. Connor and Ellie have engraved themselves on my own heart, with their light, kindness and the joy they experience in each other.
This is a story that spans the years creating a sense of depth as we see the passage of time, the twists and turns of life and the enduring nature of love, even when it doesn't always run smoothly.
This is a book to relish. It has a strength to the

Wow....... Devastated, elated, horrified, smitten are just some of the emotions experienced in reading about Ellie's and Connors true love for one another.

The highs send you into a world of euphoria, the lows send you into depression but you come out of it all with a true sense of what love really is. The ride is raw but emotionally complete.

KM Golland I am in awe. Such talent.

PS this just might have ripped Stella out of 1st place fav.....

I’m not crying you are! (sits typing this with red puffy eyes).

This story was just sooo good. It was sweet, romantic, heartbreaking and gut wrenching. I know it’s going to be one of my new favourites. It had me in hysterics. From the first chapter I was hooked. I experienced so many different emotions through Ellie and Connor. It was a roller coaster of a ride. It made my puddle of tears, multiple times but the last chapter... well, I was a sobbing mess. This is the first time I’ve read a book

What a book to pick as my first one by this author. My absolute favourite second chance romance of the year.

Connor and Ellie's story is one you live with them. Through friends to lovers we see them at their best and worst. From their first meeting the story had me enthralled. We are along for the ride as they grow into young adults. I rejoiced in their love and cried at their pain.

I recommend having a survival kit of wine and tissues to hand. A truly beautifully written story that will make

So beautiful! That's the first word that came to my mind on finishing this book. I didn't know what to expect from this book when I started with it, and I wanted this story to take me by surprise. It not only took be a pleasant surprise but it took me on a roller coaster ride with loads of highs and lows and broke me apart but by the end of it, it also managed to put me back together
This book was EVERYTHING and honestly, I didn't find anything to complain about. It has all possible elements that

Connor and Ellie were soul mates. But when he broke her heart with his betrayal, she moved away and didn't come back for years. Now she's back, though, and he's determined to have the second chance he knows they deserve. Will Ellie let him back into her life? Or is her broken heart closed to him forever?

Unspoken Words - Get burned

Unspoken Words is a heartbreaking tearjerker of a story. No spoilers here, I'll just say, have a box of tissue handy because you're going to need it while you're reading Connor and Ellie's

From the beginning of the book, l connected with Ellie and Connor, maybe because I met my soul mate at 13... so I felt everything they went through, and then after a certain point, I had this little bit of doubt that Ms Golland was going to be putting my heart through the wringer... Can't say which point as I would spoil the whole thing but ever since I have been rooting for this couple to make it to their HEA.
There's been heartstopping moments, moments of joy... Moments of anger at the idiotic

This book has me in awe. This book made me ugly cry. Not once. Not twice. But three times! This is a book full of powerful words. It is sweet. It is funny. It is infuriating. It is sad. It is touching. It is meaningful.

I haven’t read a book this emotionally strong in a long time. I dove in expecting/wanting/needing to cry a little bit. I was wrong. I cried a lot. It has all the emotions waiting for you, tucked away into little nooks n crannies waiting to be unleashed.
