There comes a moment in everyone’s life when they must decide which road leads to personal happiness. For Dylan Silver, this is that moment…
For the past twenty-two-years, Dylan has been living in her parents' carefully crafted world, always putting her own dreams on hold to play the role of a dutiful daughter.
So when her best friend coaxes her into a winter getaway to a mountain cabin, she sees it as a chance to forget about the responsibilities waiting for her at home. At least for a little while.
But then her past catches up to her—in the form of sexy snowboarder, Sawyer Carter.
Six years ago, Dylan bid goodbye to the only boy she ever truly loved. Now he's standing right in front of her, bringing up bittersweet memories and igniting suppressed desires as he dares her to be the person she has always wanted to be.
Dylan and Sawyer’s unexpected meeting is a second chance, but will a girl who doesn't believe in fate and taking risks be able to overcome her fears of losing control and finally embrace the life she desperately wants?
Only one thing is certain: after a week in Whistler, Dylan's world will never be the same.
My thoughts, feelings and reactions
I was completely and utterly enchanted by Silver Heart. It made me smile and swoon all at once, dazzled me with its wintery setting, and hit me with a great amount of feels I wouldn’t trade for in the world.
I have some serious love for Dylan because she was admirable in her self discovery, in her love for Sawyer and in her independence, strength, and devotion. She was not perfect though she strived to be. Dylan had her own fears and doubts that led her to realize what she truly wanted out of her life. She learned to let go of her inhibitions, to lose some control, and allowed herself to do and feel things out of her comfort zone. Even when she bruised and fell on her ass while trying to snowboard she kept trying no matter how discouraged she felt. I was more than inspired and proud of Silver for the decisions she made in the end. Also memorable was Silver’s love for lime Popsicles and private lessons. They bring on a whole new meaning for me. *winks*
So lets talk about a certain sexy snowboarder by the name of Sawyer Carter. Why on earth should you love, adore and worship Carter the Carver? Well, because he snowboards (duh), has light green eyes (swoons) and has several significant tattoos that makes me want to...(licks). But really, it’s because Sawyer is charmingly sweet, ambitious, caring, daring, and accomplished. He’s flirty and funny and says the most breathtaking lines that are genuine and sincere. He lights up the room, grabs attention but he is never arrogant in his success or superiority. He makes your heart melt, your knees weak, and makes you want to sigh in contentment every time he is around. Most especially, he pushes Dylan to be true to herself. Sawyer Carter makes me want to jump his snowboard and ride on the slopes all day. *giggles*
I loved what Victoria Green created in Silver Heart because it was profoundly poignant, steamy hot, and clever all the way. Her writing gives off a strong, mature, and prominent voice in Dylan. She makes Dylan and everything she goes through to be connectable and relatable. The added humor, witty lines, and silly jokes make the book even more well rounded. Not only the romance was established and developed well, but the friendship between Silver and Sawyer that started it all was too. What I loved most about their relationship was the acceptance, support, and understanding they gave each other. The honesty, being able to admit their mistakes to one another, and how both refused to stand in the way of the other’s dreams was truly beautiful. I also commend Victoria on her ability to write combustable sexual tension that climbed higher and higher. The make out scenes were sexy, the touching scenes were sensual, and the sex scenes were thoroughly seductive. I officially love ledges and horny forest rangers! They're best things in life. Victoria impressed me so much because she made Silver Heart truly realistic from the characters, to the romance, to whole storyline and everything in between.
I do have to mention another thing I love about Silver Heart and that’s Dylan’s brother, Adam Silver. Let's meet in an on-call room one day, my love.
Overall, Silver Heart was phenomenally written with the perfect balance of beauty, inspiration, wit and romantic love. The words just melt off the page and go straight to your heart.

I was not compensated for my opinion
"Are you planning to wait until you get your medical degree to have sex again? she sounded genuinely concerned. "You know, you don't actually need a license to bang."
"Congratulations on inventing a new disease--oversharitis."
"He smelled like fresh snow, cold days on the slopes, warm memories, and something else that was distinctly Sawyer."
"You'll always be my favorite medal, Silver."
"Let's go, Silver. Time to live a little."
"Or die a lot."
"She prefers pandas over monkeys," Sawyer said, alluding to my favorite animal.
"Of course. I remember everything."
"Don't let anyone keep you from being yourself."
"In my heart, you were always mine."
"I want to fuck you and I don't want to stop fucking you until you're screaming my name in that sexy, raspy way that drives me wild."
"I want to love you like I've loved you all my life. And I don't want to stop. Ever."
"And what is it that you want to do, Sawyer?"
"Taste your lips. Claim your heart. Never let you go."
"You and me. Silver and Sawyer."
Perfect song for Silver Heart
Sawyer & Silver <3
