    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Quite a story - 4.5 stars If you have triggers, this book may not be for you. However, this book is about a woman who is taking back her power and coming into her own. It has an interesting plot and phenomenal characters, but the pacing felt off. In some spots, it was too rushed, while in others it felt too slow. The main issue in the book isn't resolved, which is good for next book and it ends on a scene that definitely leaves me wanting to read the next book.

I think the only reason I read this was because it kept showing up in my recommendations due to other similar books I read. Happy I decided to chance it. Now about triggers. I don't have any, but others do. There is a lot of abuse in the way of flashbacks and dreams. Rape, psychological abuse, controlling everything about her life, etc. It is somewhat detailed in some scenes, but fades to black in others. There are some bondage and BDSM scenes that I am not sure how to feel about. Having never suffered anything like this, I don't know if it is possible for a sexual abuse survivor to be okay with all of that. Maybe some are, I don't know. I found it hard to understand how one could even with the alter after that was revealed. So, in a word, it's fiction. I guess, I will go with the flow since I really wanna read more about how Zane and Molly handle that last bit. I also want to see how Trent fits with Mia, Heath, and Morgan. The characters really are captivating. The plot stalled a few times because of all the steamy sex, which is great, but more plot action, please!

This book is dark and detailed and well-written. A contemporary reverse harem thriller with dangerous situations and hot sexual tension, Thalia sucks you in and doesn’t let go. *I would like to add a trigger warning. There is physical and mental abuse against women along with detailed murder scenes. The author has done a very thorough job writing it, but it can be very triggering for some. Please keep that in mind while reading.* The first in a series, Thalia has done a great job with her characters. Mia is a strong female lead who is still dealing with some serious domestic abuse and the aftermath. She has to learn how to be herself and Molly is determined to help her overcome her fear. Thalia has given Mia three strong men who appeal to her in their own unique ways. Each man, Trent, Heath, and Morgan, all have their own unique things to offer to Mia and help her along the way. The plot…holy hell, the plot. There were twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting that had me rereading because…yeah. It takes a lot to throw me off-guard in a book, but Thalia definitely did that. The author also breaks a silence that isn’t dealt with a lot, domestic abuse and the silence that surrounds it. The situations she writes about happen far too often and I applaud her for tackling them in this book. I can’t wait to see where Thalia is going to take Mia and her men with book 2. She has set the stage beautifully for some very interesting times ahead.

Dark, hurtful situations are exposed and dealt with by some unorthodox methods but methods that I think are entirely possible in 'the real world'. It is an evolving RH with room for more partners hinted at in the future. Mia is a totally believable FMC who is struggling with her issues but learning to open up and deal with the problems with help from her friends and her harem. She has the potential to be absolutely awesome and I hope to see this in upcoming books. Several triggers for domestic violence survivors and victims of any violence so be aware if you have these issues. It is kind of tough to review this one properly without spoilers, so I will let it go with; I enjoyed this immensely and will be reading the sequels as soon as they are available. I will also be grabbing some of Rowan's other books. If this is your genre be sure to pick this one up, grab an iced tea and settle down for an enjoyable read!

    Wow!! This book was a complete surprise to me in the best way. Rowan Thalia  has created a world that completely consumed me and I couldn't put the book down until I was done.. who needs to eat right??

    Single handedly the best reverse harem dark romance I've had the pleasure to read this year. Many dark romances glorify women who enjoy being dominated by men who demean them. For me, that can pull from the romance. Not this novel. In Deafening Silence, we get to watch Mia a former abuse victim find love and strength again in the arms of very different men who help her feel whole again. And golly, Ms. Molly gets justice for abused women who otherwise would have been forgotten.

    One of my all time favourite reads I’ve sat here for a while wondering how I could possible convey my feelings about this book. What I will say is, read the book. The way the topic is handled and considered in this book is beautiful in its grittiness and realistic approach. The plot is well written and the twists and turns throughout keep you amazed. The characters are the winning aspect, their personalities and flaws are put out there and handled whilst your taken on an epic journey.

    Unexpected Twists! Woah, when I picked up this book I was expecting a story of someone who overcame horrible circumstances, and while this story delivers that, it also delivers so much more. Maybe I’m just not good at predicting what will happen nexts, but I was not expecting some of these plot twists. I’m so excited to see this characters again and especially the sexy Master Zane.

    Samantha

    This is a great one! It is dark, midnight in the underground dark, it with a vindicated edge that has you rooting for the “bad” guy and reveling in the blood letting. It’s sexy and wicked and really just perfect for a sensual revenge and survival type read. Multiple partners and strong triggers of physical and sexual violence against women, that begets violence against men. If you can handle flexible morality and an eye for an eye with some sexy carnality, you are in for a treat.

    This is one of those books that is so good that my words fail to portray how good it is. I have a book hangover from this one. The characters were well developed and the writing made me feel like I was in the book, feeling everything the FMC felt without it being too graphic. And the twist was unexpected. I look forward to reading the next one.

    I thought I could not love this author more. And she just hit me straight in the heart and made me fall in love even harder. This is one powerful book. And I mean powerful with an emphasis on some very unpleasant topics. This book is an hommage to victims of rape and domestic violence and contains quite a bit of violence and is not for the faint of heart. I love this book with passion and I believe it will forever remain my favourite from this author. I have no idea how to express myself and also I thought I could not love this author more.

I love this book with passion and I believe it will forever remain my favourite from this author. I have no idea how to express myself and also whatever I say might contain a huge amount of spoilers, so I have to be vague. One thing is clear, this book contains a lot of triggers, as it is about triggers. Mia is the main character and she is on the run from her ex-husband who she left after nine years of heavy abuse, which culminated in her almost being killed. Not all the details are clear but slowly, the author reveals Mia’s painful past through memory flashback and panic attacks triggered by unpleasant stuff she sees at work. Then there is the other part part of the story focusing on the healing and reclaiming control of one’s life after all the trauma and abuse. Molly is the other main character and she is a complete opposite, calculated, strong and on the rampage expending justice for those who escaped it. And there is a romantic aspect to the story as well, and that part get quite hot at times. Like super hot. And that part does not contain any unpleasant details, violence, and is 100% consensual. The plot is so incredibly complex, following several stories and several characters, as well as several side stories and side characters, and it is narrated from the points of view of the two main characters. I have no idea how the author managed to juggle all of this but the result is amazing. Everything falls into place, all the details connect, even the shocking ending. I want to say that the ending was the best part but the truth is, I was completely immersed in this story I didn’t even notice when I reached the end. It was all consuming and one of the best stories I have ever read.

She's trying to get to a point where she can get comfortable without being scared. She meets a man who is like a balm to some of her issues. We also meet Molly who is a bidding serial killer who is sick and tired of men who sexually assult people get off. She starts to hone her craft and meets a guy along the way that teaches her more than just technique. These two ladies lives come to a head, but is it for better of for worse. I loved the multiple female MC. It was nice to see two women who were different but somewhat alike at the same time. I really enjoyed the evolution of seeing Molly get her first kill and how she slowly starts to find her own technique. Mia also grew in this story even though it was a tad hard for her with everything going on but seeing her open up and talk about her experiencea was awesome. I absolutely adored the men in this book. Zane is so hot the way he takes control but I also like that he's damaged as well which makes the fact that he likes control make sense. Heath...he sweet but he has that side to him. I love how sweet he is with Mia and it makes you love him more, that he wants to be there for her and is willing to work with her. The ending...I mean I loved it, I was hoping it would be him.....I really need the second book because I want to know what's going to happen with them next.

    I loved this book I thought the story was really good, I loved Mia and Molly the two POV's you get in this book, one a victim of abuse and rape from the people who were meant to love her the most and the other a hunter of men to seek out justice for those that got away with abusing women. I loved the guys and am excited to see how the late addition adjusts to the group. I cannot wait for the next book. Very excited about this series.
