To start with I'd just like to say how glad I am that this story is set in Australia & that the author didn't give in to the pressure to set it in America. I get a bit bored of so many books being set in the US, particularly if the author is not from there, that it was refreshing to read a story set in another country for a change.
Stacey Nash has picked a very difficult subject for this book, one which I'm pretty sure 90% of people are not aware of as I certainly wasn't. I think the subject, the surrounding fall out from it & the way the main character, Olivia, deals with it is highly commendable.
I loved Olivia's friends, they are the kinda friends that everyone deserves to have and Logan, oh my! He is sexy and caring with a little bit of the bad boy thrown in too, he's my very new book boyfriend. Also, that kiss! I think that is probably one of the most hottest kiss scenes I have ever read, and it was a very tame scene compared to a lot of books, it was just hot.
There were also characters to hate in this story and the ones I disliked the most were Olivia's parents. I hated them and wanted to bash their heads together so hard that hopefully it would knock some sense in to them, sadly I don't think that would work, but it would definitely be worth a try. Stacey is very good at giving some depth to even the minor characters which to me is always a sign of a good author as there is nothing worse than a flat character in a book.
Overall I enjoyed this book and I recommend giving this one a read as I don't think you'll regret it.
I was totally gripped right from the start. It really was a case of 'just one more chapter then sleep' which, alas, didn't happen so I felt very sleepy this morning lol!
The first book in the Oxley College Saga, this story focuses on the beautiful relationship between Olivia and Logan. Both have issues and see themselves as anything but perfect, but both believe the other to be perfect to them.
The book shows the true meaning of friendship, with friends Savvy and Molly sticking by Olivia when her ex-boyfriend Christian starts spreading rumours about her.
My only criticism, and it is a tiny one, is that there are a number of spelling errors in the book. This by no means takes anything away from the story or my enjoyment of the book. I guess I just notice these things as it used to be part of my job.
I would wholeheartedly recommend the book, and I look forward to reading more from Stacey Nash.
I gave the book three stars for a couple of reasons. I would have given it four stars, because, while it wasn't one of the top books I've ever read, I did like it. But, there were some minor errors that were not picked up in editing, which led to the three stars. They were nothing major, and definitely not enough to detract from the story overall for most readers. But, I'm an English teacher and so they jumped out at me and put me into my grading essays mode. It pulled me out of the story on occasion when there was a verb shift from past tense to present in the same sentence, or other similar, small issues. I think that the book could have used one more read through for an extra polish.
The story is written in first-person, which is great when the author wants to really pull the reader into the story. The main character, Olivia, goes through a lot of struggle, which is presented in a way that is relatable. The character is well developed as she deals with the rumor that starts after her very public breakup. The author deals with the sexual nature of the issues going on in a way that is appropriate for the genre. Personally, I think that the plot and Olivia could have been even more developed had the book not been in the new adult category.Read more ›

This is Stacey Nash's first journey into the new adult world and it was wonderful! Way to go Stacey! I loved how the romance was not in any way soft porn. ..no explicit sex scenes here but enough romance to make it swoon worthy! This book was all about self discovery as a young adult and learning to accept yourself no matter what your flaws are...or what you think they are.
Olivia and Logan...big dreamy sigh inserted here....the relationship is wonderful, full of twists, agony and the roller coaster of life. I loved every second. I also thoroughly enjoyed the secondary characters of Savvy and Molly (can we get a Molly book please?). All of the characters are so well developed that I could relate to an aspect of each of them. It was very well written and I was disappointed that it had to end.
Stacey Nash has done an amazing job making readers uncomfortable with Olivia's issues and outraged at the bullying that occurs. This book tugged at my heartstrings and made me want to yell and scream at the way Olivia is treated. Thank you Stacey for incorporating such important topics to be discussed.
Stacey Nash is one of my new favorite writers...Shh! is worth the read!
The book is well written and flows very well. While there are a few grammatical errors, the story flows well. Olivia is a strong character that I would like to see where her future leads.
I will say this . . .this series is going to fun to watch as it unfolds.
Plot: The main character is Olivia, a girl who seemingly has it all until her world comes crashing down when her boyfriend dumps her in public, and rumours start flying that she’s a prolific (and loud) errr…self-loving sexoholic. She has to get to the bottom of her problems, but of course it’s not going to be that easy, especially when Logan appears in her life to distract her right when she doesn’t need it.
Characters: While I couldn’t relate to Olivia’s little problem, I could relate to her through other things. Wanting to do well at her studies, having a one track mind when it comes to achieving her goals. She had some embarrassing things happen to her, but she was never weak in dealing with them.
Logan…well of course I adored him! Haha I’m not sure what else there is to say. The only note I jotted down while reading this was, ‘Logan: be more perfect’. Which should tell you everything you need to know!
Style/Writing: As always, the writing was great. I felt engaged with the story and the characters the whole time. It was believable and interesting, and flowed at a good pace too!
In Brief: A quick enjoyable read with an unusual plot (at least, I thought so) and some great characters. I would definitely recommend this if you like contemporary romance. It IS New Adult so there are a couple of steamy scenes, but they’re not explicit…and if you like perfect book boyfriends, well. There’s one waiting for you within the pages of Shh!
It’s a story that even when talking about sexual problems it isn’t graphic about it. In fact, it’s sweet and romantic. I think there are very few novels in the NA market with this characteristic, and that’s why I love it.
I think lots of girls can relate with Olivia, wanting to be perfect, wanting the acceptance and the perfect life. Seeing her struggle with her night problem and the embarrassment it brings makes the reader connect with her, making us feel what she feels. A wonderful job of Stacey Nash indeed.
Jordan is sweet and kind and all the things everyone wants in a boyfriend. He doesn’t need anything more. He’s a guy that accepts, listen and helps. Never imposes, never judges. Just the perfect guy.
As the blurb says, it’s a story of acceptance, trust, and love. You’ll find yourself smiling at the end.
Nash writes well, with the perfect balance of romance, personal growth and drama all interspersed throughout this book. Her dialogue just leaps off the page, and I enjoyed this thoroughly. Can't wait to read more!
