I received this galley in exchange for an honest review.

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.

There have been so many New Adult books that have come out in the last year. At first I was all about NA. I couldn't get enough of them. But lately I feel like I've been in a NA slump. Every book I read sounds exactly the same. Luckily that did not happen with Silver Heart. It is one of the best I have read, and it can definitely hold its place among some of the other well known NA stories!

Dylan has always done what her family expects of her, so she never got to be her own person. She graduated college pre-med because that is what her parents wanted her to do and she's even fake dating someone because of them. The amount of control her parents had on her life was sickening. I kept wanting her to stick up for herself and I hated every minute that she didn't!

While at a ski lodge she sees Sawyer, the boy she loved but hasn't seen in years. Sawyer is definitely on my top five book boyfriends. He was so sweet! For me, there is nothing sexier then a man whose been through a lot and is still a good person despite a hard life. I loved every single moment that the two of them were together. You can tell how much they loved and cared for each other and they shared a very hot and romantic connection! I really couldn't get enough of the two of them. I also enjoyed watching Dylan grow as a character. She definitely had a lot of growing up to do!

Sawyer and Dylan were not the only two characters written to perfection. Even the secondary characters were written beautifully. I especially loved Dylan's best friend Maddie. She was so much fun! Maddie found herself a hot Australian while on the ski trip and I would love to read a story about the two of them (hint, hint!). Every character was written in a way that made them realistic and relatable.

Victoria Green created a wonderful story with Silver Heart. The writing was fantastic and everything flowed so nicely together. I can not wait to read what Green comes out with next!
