Blog Tour Review feat Giveaway- Shh! By Stacey Nash

Shh! (Oxley College #1)
Release Date: 02/23/15

Summary from Goodreads:
Nineteen-year-old Olivia Dean has the perfect reputation, the perfect boyfriend, and an increasingly perfect CV. She has it all, until Christian breaks up with her in public, calling her out as a self-gratifying sexoholic: the kind that plays solo. But Olivia doesn’t masturbate all night — the only thing she does is sleep … right?

Now all the boys on campus seem to want her attention for the absolutely wrong reason — including resident hottie, Logan Hays. He's pulling out his best moves to gain her attention, so resisting his sexy charm is hard work. With rapidly slipping grades, a disturbingly lurid reputation and demanding parents, Olivia must discover the truth behind her rumoured sleeping problem. If she doesn't, the perfect life she's worked so hard for may slip away, including the one person who has Olivia breaking all her rules — Logan.

What do you do when you’re asleep?

Shh! is a story about acceptance, learning to trust and in turn love while facing life's unexpected difficulties.

NB: This book is of a mild heat level, and contains no explicit sex scenes.


My thoughts as soon as finishing up Shh! is that I liked it but I didn't exactly love it. It was interesting enough to keep my interest throughout but I can't see myself reading the book again. I couldn't relate to the main character and her problem. And more importantly, I couldn't see why people would even make fun of her for it. Or maybe I could, but it's not something I would make fun of someone for. Anyways, Olivia is humiliated when her boyfriend, Christian, publicly breaks up with her for pretty much masturbating all night in her sleep. He claims he can't vet get any sleep. Rightttttt. Then she meets Logan!

Logan seems different; special even. But could Olivia even trust him when everyone on campus thinks she's a big joke. One really admirable thing about Olivia is that she holds her head in divinity despite what she's going through. I really liked that about her. If it were me causing all kinds of negative attention, I'd probably handle it by becoming a recluse. While Liv wants to do that, she somehow always manages to come out on top. 

So Logan and Olivia. Obviously boy wants more but the girl doesn't. Secretly she does want him but it goes back to square one, trust. Sure, Logan is all great on the outside but what are his true intentions? I really loved their friendship and their banter. The slow build of the relationship between the two was great too. 

The characters were fun to read about even if I didn't connect much to Olivia. The secondary characters were great and I look forward to reading their stories! The plot was a bit dramatic and a little unbelievable bit like I said before, it still kept me interested. The pacing was fast and easy. You'll finish the book in no time at all! 

Overall, the book was okay. If your looking for a non-serious book that has some great characters and will keep you engaged; then this is for you. I personal couldn't connect with Olivia but that doesn't mean I didn't like her. Her character growth is one that enjoyed watching.
