***THIS STANDALONE IS BEST ENJOYED WHEN YOU DON'T READ ANY REVIEWS OR SPOILERS BEFORE READING. GOING IN BLIND IS BEST. TRUST ME.***
When my eyes are closed, the monster can’t ever see me.
When I sing a song in my head, the monster can’t ever hear me.
When I pretend my bedroom is a playground where I play hide and seek, the monster can’t ever find me.
The darkness should frighten me.
I should worry I’ll find more monsters…monsters scarier than him.
But I’m not afraid.
It’s safe here.
When I’m inside of my head…
He. Can’t. Ever. Touch. Me.
Whispers and the Roars is a dark romance. Strong sexual themes and violence, which could trigger emotional distress are found in this story. The abuse written in this story is graphic and not glossed over which could be upsetting to some. Proceed with caution. This story is NOT for everyone

Book Review: 5 Stars
I’m smitten and I don’t care who knows it! Seriously, it’s rare that I love an author enough to put them in my 1-click club but let me tell you, since Webster’s War Series, I haven’t been able to quit her.
I heard whispers about this book. Fans—myself included—were roaring from every corner, ravenous for something we could devour like the last amazing book of hers we’d read. And then this book happened. This book. This book is a bitch slap across the face of the inner voice you never wanted but always needed. This book blew. Me. Away. In fact, The Whispers and the Roars is on my top 10 books of 2016. REALLY. Yes. It’s that good.
Webster has a gift. A gift that is rare. She’s a storyteller through and through and she’s gonna tell you her story, whether you like it or not. Whether it entertains or horrifies you, she’s writing a story. And if you’re a lover of goddamn good stories like me, you’re gonna shut the f*ck up, sit the hell down and read it.
The Whispers and the Roars is a story of love, pain, heartbreak and resilience. It’s a story that was both amazing and hard to read. It’s a story that will stick with me forever. The two main characters Kady and Yeo own their roles and then some. Their struggles, drama, and love for eachother is the bright light that shines through the dark depths at which their reality drags them to. With each other, life is complicated. Without each other, life is impossible.
He was supposed to find a new life. A new girlfriend. A wife even. Move far the hell away from me. Yet, here he is…kissing me like the world might end…
It is impossible to talk about this book in depth without giving away crucial plot elements. Honestly, there were twists and turns that I didn’t see coming, and even when I thought I knew what was happening…Webster still surprised me. (FYI, I’m not easily surprised.)
“You were so alone…” “But I wasn’t,” she argues. I laugh. “You’re never alone. True But sometimes the loneliest people are surrounded by noise… you were sad. Something was missing and I wanted to fill it. I wanted to fill your heart with me.”
FYI: There were some triggers here, and I think that they need mentioning. Within are graphic elements of violence and rape…but there are also elements of the purest most unconditional love that help lighten the heavy.
That is Webster’s gift. When things got heavy, she knew how to keep me in it without shutting down. She gave me what I needed and kept me strong. Just like Kady and Yeo.
Fellow COBB and Gs, I honestly can’t recommend this book enough. For me, Webster is up there with COHO, and that is saying something. #1ClickClub
