Not familiar with this little feature? It's simple, really. Monday Must Reads! is a feature I created to showcase books that I think you, well, Must Read (ha!).
This week's selection is a good one. It's by an author that has massive talent (read: EDEN!) and who is one of the nicest people I've "met" on this journey of words. Her latest release is a new one for her, a contemporary written from a guy's POV...and it's a winner! Trust me when I say that you simply Must Read...

product description from goodreads.com
Getting drunk homecoming night your senior year is never a good idea, but Jake Hayes never expected it all to end with a car crash and a t-post embedded in his throat.
His biggest regret about it all? What he never said to Samantha Shay. He's been in love with her for years and never had the guts to tell her. Now it's too late. Because after that night, Jake will never be able to talk again.
When Jake returns to his small island home, population 5,000, he'll have to learn how to deal with being mute. He also finds that his family isn't limited to his six brothers and sisters, that sometimes an entire island is watching out for you. And when he gets the chance to spend more time with Samantha, she'll help him learn that not being able to talk isn’t the worst thing that could ever happen to you. Maybe, if she'll let him, Jake will finally tell her what he didn't say before, even if he can't actually say it.
This book is full of humor and pain and sadness and redemption...and all those other emotions that every person experiences, all played out perfectly between two characters that I know you're gonna love--so grab a copy now! :-)
