Annie Edwards was born deaf, but she’s never let that define her. She’s settling in as a freshman at Whitney Briggs University, loves her dorm, her roommate, her classes, but something feels as though it’s missing—enter Blake Daniels. He’s everything Annie is not—a rocker, a player, a college dropout. Her friends want to sleep with him, her brothers want to kill him, and all Annie wants is a chance to see where her heart takes her.
As the lead singer of 12 Deadly Sins, Blake has had his fair share of rock candy. But Annie has taken over his body, his mind, his heart—three things he’s never lost control of before.
Often first love and first heartbreak go hand in hand.
Sometimes the thrill of one is worth risking the other.
Annie is an amazing girl. Sweet. loving, and independent (At least trying to be). Independence is tough with two older brothers around fending off the boys.
Blake is a mess. Blake is the lead singer for 12 Deadly Sins. Blake used to be a player. He has girls still lining up to get into his pants. But Blake does not want that life anymore. Since his brother died he has been looking for something more and unsure of what his future will hold.
Blake meets Annie on campus the day he is dropping his classes. He can't focus on school. This semester he needs a break to regroup, refocus, and figure out his life minus one brother that was his best friend.
Annie just wants to be independent and decides to get herself to her first class Bryson her old brother who is always looking out for her. Being deaf she never thought that getting to her first class would turn out to be a life or death situation. Thank God for Blake.
Blake is her saving Grace. And scoops her out of the way of a moving vehicle just in time. But she will be late for her class if she does not hustle so off she goes running across campus. Blake asks her name but Annie takes off and Blake loses her.
12 Deadly Sins have a booking/gig at the Brown Bear and just happens to be Holt, Bryson, and Annie's bar. They see each other again and this time Blake finds out Annie's name and that she is deaf. Blake also gets threatened by Annie's brothers and told to leave Annie alone.
Annie is determined to be her own person and she likes Blake so she will still hang out with him. Blake's secrets and past come to the surface. Some Annie can deal with right away but others take more time for Annie to understand the full story. This is difficult when you two brothers are trying to get you away from someone they feel is a bad influence when they don't know the full story.
This is the second story where the main character is deaf that I have read thus far. I love it. How Annie's brothers describe some of the noises that things make is hilarious and surprising accurate. You get to see a little bit of Annie's silent world and I felt like I got to feel my way through the music and Blake's life. It was a nice read and a good ending for the characters. Blake really is a knight in shining armor, he just dresses like a rockstar and has the body of a superstar.
