[Blog Tour] Review & Giveaway: Shh! (Oxley College #1) by Stacey Nash


Shh! (Oxley College #1)
Release Date: 02/23/15
Summary from Goodreads:
Nineteen-year-old Olivia Dean has the perfect reputation, the perfect boyfriend, and an increasingly perfect CV. She has it all, until Christian breaks up with her in public, calling her out as a self-gratifying sexoholic: the kind that plays solo. But Olivia doesn’t masturbate all night — the only thing she does is sleep … right?

Now all the boys on campus seem to want her attention for the absolutely wrong reason — including resident hottie, Logan Hays. He's pulling out his best moves to gain her attention, so resisting his sexy charm is hard work. With rapidly slipping grades, a disturbingly lurid reputation and demanding parents, Olivia must discover the truth behind her rumoured sleeping problem. If she doesn't, the perfect life she's worked so hard for may slip away, including the one person who has Olivia breaking all her rules — Logan.

What do you do when you’re asleep?
Shh! is a story about acceptance, learning to trust and in turn love while facing life's unexpected difficulties.
NB: This book is of a mild heat level, and contains no explicit sex scenes.

This was kind of a sweet and stubborn kind of romance book at the same time I liked how Olivia stood up for herself and chose the things she wanted to do in her life.

At first, the pacing was kind of slow but it turned out better especially when Logan made his appearance when he was trying to get Olivia's attention.

I actually liked Olivia but her character was bit weak or placating for me well at the beginning and somewhere in the middle anyway. But she gets better especially towards the end. The only thing I can relate to Olivia though were her goals and the things she wants to do in order to please her parents. I felt for her when her boyfriend make that her ex said something about that embarrassed her and let her experienced not so good things.

I was not pleased with the other characters especially her friend Savannah. I wonder what kind of friend was she. It's like she supprots Olivia and th next poof nothing. I especially disliked it that she was with Dane (Although they were both kind of okay later) when Olivia was in turmoil. Although the person I wasn't most please about was Ella. That girl has some major jealosy issues and making others feel bad about themselves. I really wished karma got her but that never happened. The only good thing that happened was that Olivia finally stood up to her.

I really likd Logan. At first I thought he was that cliche popular type of guy but there's more to him than meets the eye. Well, his previous self was like taht before a tragedy occurred in his past. I liked both him and his brother. You could feel their close relationship.

Olivia and Logan's relationshio was rocky at the beginning because of what Olivia was going through. It seemed after her break up with her boyfriend everything around her seemed to have gone downhill from there. What a really bad timing for Logan but I'm glad he persevered in his pursuit of Olivia. I'm glad that Olivia finally had the sense to give in with Logan.

Olivia has a habit she does when she sleeps at night. The main cause why things seemed harder for her. I had a bad feeling when she decided to video tape it and I was right. I have a feeling who took her things and uploaded the video. I just really wished that person got what was coming. At the same time. I'm glad she has the support of her friends especially Logan's.

The romance in the story is mild compare to other NAs but at the same time it is still sweet. All is well at the end. I'm happy for Olivia and the things she want to pursue in her life for herself and not for her parents. I especially loved the part where she stood up for her relationship with Logan. I was hoping there would be conclusion for her relationship with parents but nothing was mentione after that.

I'm excited for the next book in this series. It is Jordan's story.
