Amy's 5 star ARC Review of Sound Of Silence by Elizabeth Miller

War isn’t a testament to a man’s strength; finding peace with it is.

Navy SEAL Caden Lawless is coming home. Holding his best friend as he bled out in the Afghanistan desert, Caden became bound by Justin’s desperate plea to care for his fiancée, and to love the son he’d never know. Battling a barrage of memories and with a head full of noise, Caden travels cross country in his beat up Chevy to make good on his promise.

One knock on Piper Stevens’ door and he knows she isn’t broken. Pregnant and mourning the only man she’d ever loved, Piper wields her anger as a sword, slashing into Caden’s grief and his heart. 

As Caden works to silence his demons, he finds a new mission, one far away from the heat and depravity that clawed its way into his soul. He demands into Piper’s life, intent on helping her pick up the pieces. 

But even as the tentative fingers of a burgeoning friendship spread into something far deeper than either believed possible, duty calls for Caden to return to the battlefield. Fate brought them together, will war tear them apart? Or, will Caden reclaim the sounds of silence and remain with the woman who taught him love didn’t die in the desert?

Navy SEAL Caden Lawless promised his best friend Justin that he would take care of his fiancé and his unborn child. Killed in the desert, Caden has to face the woman he has promised to protect and care for. Being a Navy SEAL has taken from him ... it has taken his best friend and now its going to take his heart on a journey that only a love of a woman can set him free from his grief. Finding the woman Justin loved living in a run down cabin alone is not what he was expecting. 

Piper Stevens isn't broken -- she is angry. The man she loves is gone. His child is growing inside of her and she has no one. Fierce and ready to fight the last thing she wants is Caden being her watchdog. When she looks at Caden all she sees is Justin and what the war took from her. Why would Justin make him come back here to take care of her. She doesn't need Caden .. she needs the man that was lost and is never coming back. 

A broken man and an angry woman trying to pick up the pieces and fill the hole in each ones being. Caden swimming in memories of war in his head and the "brother" he lost. How can two people who loved the same man move forward especially when Caden is called back out. How can they survive. 

This is a very emotional read but one that could be true to heart. The characters are well written and the anger steaming from Piper is on point. The devastation of so many caused by loss is horrendous but add a solider lost during his mission into the mix and it's ten fold. Great read and great story. Loved this one. Thank you for the ARC
