Synopsis: There comes a moment in everyone's life when they must decide which road leads to personal happiness. For Dylan Silver, this is that moment...

For the past twenty-two-years, Dylan has been living in her parents' carefully crafted world, always putting her own dreams on hold to play the role of a dutiful daughter.
So when her best friend coaxes her into a winter getaway to a mountain cabin, she sees it as a chance to forget about the responsibilities waiting for her at home. At least for a little while.

But then her past catches up to her--in the form of sexy snowboarder, Sawyer Carter.

Six years ago, Dylan bid goodbye to the only boy she ever truly loved. Now he's standing right in front of her, bringing up bittersweet memories and igniting suppressed desires as he dares her to be the person she has always wanted to be.

Dylan and Sawyer's unexpected meeting is a second chance, but will a girl who doesn't believe in fate and taking risks be able to overcome her fears of losing control and finally embrace the life she desperately wants?

Only one thing is certain: after a week in Whistler, Dylan's world will never be the same.

Review: 3 Stars - Silver Heart by Victoria Green is a second chance story for two best friends. Both were lost to each other but never far from each other’s minds and hearts never to be forgotten.

Dylan and Sawyer grew up together. Dylan’s life was carefully constructed and laid out for her by her parents from a very young age. Sawyer was her older brother’s best friend who was trying to survive in a house filled of anger, pain and confusion. The two found something in each other, a best friend and understanding when they each thought there was no one else in the world who could or would “get” who they were.

When Sawyer walked out of her life to make something better for himself he never imagined what it would be like to have her walk back into his world six years later. Neither did Dylan ever truly believe she’d find Sawyer in her life again, making her feel that spark of life after leaving her heartbroken.

While the story is a quick, easy and for the most part a light read and yeah, it was entertaining, there wasn’t anything too spectacular that happened that made me love this one. It was good, I did like it but it was just a nice read. It’s memorable because these two have history and you wonder how they used to be, who they are now and what’s changed for these two in six years. The setting of Whistler, Canada was great… especially for this time of year, the snow and snowboarding was perfect for the story yet there just wasn’t anything that had me jumping up and down or had my heart pounding out of my chest screaming out at me that I couldn’t get enough. I liked the characters. Sawyer was a highlight… I mean who doesn’t like a hot snowboarding guy who knows how to treat a girl? And I did like how Dylan had to face some tough choices along the way. I guess I was just hoping for more.

Probably the one part about the story that I loved the most was the connection that these two characters had from beginning to end. They had a past, a missing six years they had to work to figure out and then the current that they had to try to navigate with feelings that they were finally admitting to and then a future that was full of what if’s.

As a reader you find who you want to root for in the story and for me these two were easy to want to have their own happily ever after and in more than just their romantic relationship too. You wanted Dylan to figure out what she was passionate about for her future and to be happy and you wanted Sawyer to win gold in snowboarding at the Olympics.

Another great part of the story was the secondary characters. Dylan’s brother who did stir up some stronger emotions later in the story. I really did want to kick the guy in the shins for a few things he’d done to Dylan in the past. And Dylan’s best friend Maddie was great in not only being there for her and causing her to question her choices and her life further. She was a great support to the lead female in this story and I found myself rooting for Dylan right along with both Maddie and Sawyer.

In the end it was good. It was solid. It was second chance love and it did in fact keep me… as mentioned above entertained. There are a few funny moments and lots of light hearted pieces to the story that I did help me enjoy this title. If you are a fan of great characters, second chance love in a contemporary that I do in fact recommend this title. I’m sure others will find things they enjoy about the story just as I did and will be rooting for these two characters just as I was. Enjoy!
