Description

SOMETIMES SECRETS ARE TOO BIG TO IGNORE.

Set in the same world as Love, Only Better comes a new standalone novel with the same characters readers love. 

After a lifetime of lacking confidence at work and in life, Rebecca has finally found her voice. Her blog for women is gaining traction, even getting noticed by the world’s top fashion magazine. When they request an article, Rebecca is beyond thrilled. So why is her boyfriend Kyle so concerned?

Kyle has a blank spot in his past he won’t share—not even with Rebecca. But his secret is blown when a powerful woman from Kyle’s fashion past, becomes desperate to get his attention. It’s attention he never wanted and has been trying to forget for eleven years.

As Kyle takes steps to heal, Rebecca’s article becomes a global sensation. Events force Kyle’s past and present to converge, putting Rebecca’s future at serious risk.

Kyle and Rebecca must now act to reclaim their lives before it’s too late.

With this bold novel, Paulette Stout delivers a deeply personal story that proves the power we hold to reclaim our own lives. What We Never Say is yet another bingeable read from a rising Women’s Fiction author.

Everyone knows that women get sexually assaulted and unwanted attention. While that is not okay we often don’t acknowledge that men can be victims of sexual abuse. Often they’re judged for speaking out because what man wouldn’t want the attention of a woman? This whole book brings out this issue and I’m glad it did.

My one minor critique- I could tell there was another book or novella before this story. I was able to read this just fine and not feel lost. Goodreads has this listed as book one and the copy I received doesn’t mention any previous book or is it numbered so I worry future readers will get confused. This is no way affects my rating since I’m rating completely based on What We Never Say.

Drawn to a beautiful cover and a compelling plot, What We Never Say is an immersive, empowering and wonderful read. Rebecca has shed her cloak of being meek and people-pleasing, her growing confidence expanding through her blog explicitly targeting women. With an incredible opportunity to develop this on a trustworthy platform like MOD, her second career takes flight. MOD and Kyle have a long history, a buried secret of 11 years which results in Kyle being extremely concerned and protective. The secret is revealed in the second chapter, which is an interesting take as Paulette Stout tackles a crucial and less spoken subject. This book has memorable characters with distinct traits; their evolution is remarkable, heartfelt and uplifting. At times, I found the setting of the scenes a bit sudden, and I felt that I was supposed to have a pre-existing background of the characters as the book comes from the Love, Only Better world. However, this did not impede my reading experience. A 4-star read!

Thank you to NetGalley and Smith Publicity for giving me an ARC. This honest review is left voluntarily.

In the novel WHAT WE NEVER SAY, Paulette Stout brilliantly recognized that sexual abuse does indeed occur in the workplace. By deliberating spinning a different take on abuse, she guides us through the trauma that is experienced, not only by the abused persons but also by friends and family close to them. This thriller had me hooked from the first page. Stout introduces realistic characters in situations that are not unimaginable. Abuse can take many forms as Stout demonstrates throughout her book.

This was a new author for me . I never read anything from this author before but for the most part I really liked this book. I thought the whole story was amazing. I honestly didn’t want this book to end. I can’t wait to see what this author comes up with on the next book they write. I usually judge a book from the cover because for me it shows if it’s going to be interesting or not and I loved the book.

Great book. Love that the #metoo story is told from a different view. I wanted to soak it all in, but also rush to the end to get to find out how things were resolved.
