As you’ve come to expect with a Christina Lee young adult, Whisper to Me is well written and filled with angst and sexual chemistry. Two broken characters trying to escape the past and pressures of the future, Kai and Rachel are friends. Only at different points they both want more, but aren’t sure how to make their relationship take that turn. Time and a lot of emotion bring them to the place they need to be…but the trip there is like riding a roller coaster!
Christina Lee is a master storyteller. She has the ability to draw you in from the beginning, hit hard topics like suicide, drugs, sex, etc. and bring you out the other side with a strong romance. Each character is thought out and has such a compelling back story you immediately feel a connection even if you disapprove of how they cope. Reading this type of story always takes a toll on me. I become emotionally invested in the characters and when written well I feel their emotions as if they were my own. This story was no different. Enjoyable and a perfect addition to this series!

About the Book…
At college, Rachel has a reputation for being a sarcastic flirt with a thing for star athletes. No one at school knows that she’d had her heart ripped to shreds by her high school sweetheart, who’d driven them both off the side of the road on a borrowed motorcycle, and then abandoned her. No one knows the real Rachel Mattson—except one person…
Ever since he helped nurse his sister’s feisty best friend back to health, pierced bass player Kai Nakos has been head over heels in love. But the supposed bad boy can’t risk letting Rachel know the truth—especially now that the two of them are back in their hometown for the summer, together for the first time since the months following that fateful night. Never mind that Rachel’s ex is back, groveling for her forgiveness.
Shaken by her ex’s return, Rachel finds herself turning to the one guy she knows she can trust. Kai is willing to hide his feelings for her, just to have Rachel touch him again. After all, this is only a temporary fling. Until it becomes something more. But maybe it had been more all along.
