Years later, when fate finds them together once again, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die.

Reviewer: Ebbie

Rating: 5 Groupie Stars

Don’t Speak is a modern take on the Little Mermaid. I love fairytales and was excited to read about it in a more real life setting.

Laire is the daughter of a fisherman and hasn’t experienced life outside of their small town. Erik is the son of a governor. Laire meets Erik at a party that she is working at. Laire has always wanted to experience life outside of her little town and is swept away by Erik’s sophistication and wealth. He is completely entranced by her naive ways and charm.

I loved this story. Erik and Laire’s bond was so strong, even after years apart they were still drawn to one another. Their story had it’s sad parts but it also had the lighthearted moments to balance it out. I fell in love with Erik and Laire. Erik was sexy, confident and sweet. I loved the way he was with Laire. He had much more life experiences than her but he was patient and explained everything to her. Laire was a sweet, naive, beautiful soul. I loved watching her grow into a strong, confident woman.

Fairytales seem to be my literary kryptonite; I adored them as a child and am falling in love with their retellings as an adult. Don’t Speak definitely didn’t disappoint. It has left me wanting more; I cannot wait for the next one in this series of standalone stories. I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves a fairytale with a modern twist. It is beautifully written. It pulled me in from the beginning and didn’t let me go.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
