Sound is an abstract concept for most people. We spend our lives blocking out the static in order to focus on what we believe is important. But what if, when the clarity fades into silence, it's the obscure background noise that you would give anything to hold on to?
I've always been a fighter. With parents who barely managed to stay out of jail and two little brothers who narrowly avoided foster care, I became skilled at dodging the punches life threw at me. Growing up, I didn’t have anything I could call my own, but from the moment I met Eliza Reynolds, she was always mine. I became utterly addicted to her and the escape from reality we provided each other. Throughout the years, she had boyfriends and I had girlfriends, but there wasn't a single night that I didn’t hear her voice.
You see, meeting the love of my life at age thirteen was never part of my plan. However, neither was gradually going deaf at the age of twenty-one.
They both happened anyway.
Now, I'm on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.
Fighting for my career.
Fighting the impending silence.
Fighting for her.
Every night, just before falling asleep, she sighs as a final conscious breath leaves her.
I think that's the sound I'll miss the most.



In a world with no guarantees, all Till Page has in his life are his little brothers and his best friend Eliza. Their love story starts when they are just 13 years old in an old condemned apartment building where they slowly begin to fall in love. They use this place as an escape from their reality, a place that is theirs and theirs alone. As they grow up, they grow apart, they grow back together and they learn to fight an unfair world as a team. Oh I loved this book! I laughed, I cried and I hoped.

This book was perfectly paced and expertly told in dual POV…Oh how I love duets. The relationship between Till and Eliza is beautiful, what they would do for one another is not only self-less but heart-warming as well. We are introduced to Till’s little brothers who are an important part of this story and the glue in Till and Eliza’s lives. Till and Eliza have to lose themselves and each other to realize how perfect they are for the other and how much they mean to one another.  This story is funny and super sexy!  I am so happy that their fantasy became their greatest reality!

“With one sentence and two steps, forever began. Till Page walked through my door for the very first time.”

“I’d never had anything I could call my own, but Eliza Reynolds would always be mine.”

“It was more than a friendship, but there wasn’t romance or sex. There was definitely love though. Immeasurable amounts of it. I knew Till had this grand fantasy about me. But what he didn’t realize was all that he gave me in return. He was the only thing I’d ever had that I honestly thought I couldn’t live without.”

“She burst out laughing. God, I loved that sound so much. I knew I’d never be the same when I lost it to the silence. I’d happily give up every noise in the world if I could just keep her laugh. But my life didn’t work that way.”
