Silently Loved ~ Giveaway and Review


She knew this wasn't how love was supposed to be when she married Dane Weathers. In fact, he Linkreally wasn't her choice, but one made for her by her parents who were convinced she would mess up her life and make the wrong choice for a husband. So her parents arranged for her to marry him as a way to ensure she would marry into the right family and have enough money to take care of herself for life.

Yet, that is so far from what reality was. Shortly after meeting Dane, he hit her for the first time. She called her best friend Reese who tried to convince Hailey, this was not normal. Men don't hit women, at least the kind that were worth keeping. Yet Hailey persisted and the abuse continued. Not only did he continue to hit Hailey but he was also responsible for beating her so bad, she lost the infant son she was carrying. Dane didn't even bother to attend the funeral. In addition, he made Hailey feel like she was the one at fault and she deserved it. Now looking for a way out of this volatile marriage, she plots with her best friend Reese, to leave when Dane isn't expecting it. The only problem is Dane is having affairs with women on her staff and they want to make sure that Hailey stays right where she is, as property of Dane Weathers.

In the novel, Silently Loved by Annie Lee, we are immediately immersed in the story of survival for Hailey Weathers who now realizes she has to find a way to leave her husband if she wants to escape the abuse and find a way out of her miserable marriage. With the help of her friend Reese, she will make the ultimate plot to find freedom and flee from Dane, but some how this will be much harder than either of them ever considered.

I received Silently Loved by Annie Lee compliments of the author for my honest review and was immediately drawn into the story. I needed to know if Hailey would be able to escape a very wealthy and powerful man and find a way to start a new life for herself, if only she can find a place of safety and security where her husband will not be able to find her. Seeing how true to life this story is even today, it's a compelling book that will hook you from the first page and leave you holding your breath until the very end. A 5 out of 5 stars book for the courage and fortitude that comes through the characters Annie Lee creates for the reader.
