Kate Adams has never found it difficult to keep a professional relationship with her clients . . . but then she’s never had a client like Michael Maddox. From the moment she arrives in Charlotte, Kate is tongue-tied by the devastatingly gorgeous former Marine and intelligence genius turned multi-millionaire entrepreneur. Michael seems at first glance to be the perfect catch, except for one problem. He doesn’t do relationships. And Kate doesn’t do one-night stands.

But as the tension mounts between them, Kate discovers she has larger problems—an untraceable stalker . . . and a dangerous past. When Michael offers his protection, Kate is grateful, and yet afraid. For as they grow closer, she realizes that Michael has his own secret past. And while he might save her life, he will surely break her heart.

Silenced Memories is a stand-alone romance suspense novel in the Hidden Truths series. Hidden Truths: Each stand-alone novel is riddled with mystery and romance, as lies and corruption are unraveled to reveal the truth.

Kate Adams is a consummate professional, she assists in planning the perfect events and keeps her personal and professional life separated. Helping plan an event for the Maddox siblings should be no problem, except for those butterflies she gets around Michael that leave her tongue tied and incapable of thought. He would be the perfect catch for Kate, if he was up for more than a one-night-stand...and he wasn't her client. When a stalker threatens Kate's safety, Michael finds himself willing to do anything to protect her, anything except share his secrets and open his heart.

"You thought I would forget you?" His words sent shivers dancing up her spine, and she could have sworn she had a heart palpitation.

Kate struggles with the dangers of losing her heart, Michael faces the danger of sharing his secrets, together they tackle the dangers of a serious stalker, and I lost to the danger when I grew attached to the characters and their story. Silenced Memories is Brittney Sahin's debut novel and the first novel in a standalone series titled Hidden Truths. This captivating book mixes romance with suspense, taking the mixture of business and pleasure another step further. The strongest part of Silenced Memories is the plot, it was really well fleshed out, easy to picture, and played out in my head like a movie would. I found my anxiety growing as the action picked up and I love a book that can make me experience the peril alongside the characters. one had ever unlocked her soul this way before. Had she ever let a man really know her, before now?

I loved the multifaceted story line, I felt like I got to really know the characters outside of their romance and the threat of the stalker. I loved Kate, she's a strong female character that knows herself, but isn't immune to the power of the Man of Steel. She's smart, beautiful, and at times a little irrational, but all the same fun to read about. Her family's past plays a huge role in the story and I really enjoyed how she reacted and dealt with the secrets and twists. Michael, on the oher hand, is totally swoonworthy. I loved his character background and how much went into showing his successes as a business man and hidden flaws as he struggles with his past in the military. At times I couldn't see these two working and at other times I thought they were soulmates, which made for a really interesting read. There is a ton of character development in Silenced Memories, especially when the characters recognize their feelings and start looking at themselves in new ways. I found myself wrapped up in them, just as surprised by the twists as they were. It's definitely not a predictable book and it just got better with every page turn.

She had a stalker. And she was falling for a man with a field of ice around his heart.

If you are looking for a hot, sexy, and suspensful read, let me assure you that this is it. There's secrets, apprehension, guns, lust, and some very headstrong characters at the center of this novel. Silenced Memories is just the tip of the iceberg in the Hidden Truths series, you'll definitely find yourself eager to know more about all the secondary characters you meet in Silenced Memories. Give me more of the hot marines, for sure.
