Release Blitz: Easy Silence by Beth Rinyu

Title: Easy Silence
Author: Beth Rinyu
Genre: New Adult, Romance
 Release Date: July 9, 2015


They say you never forget your first love. No matter how many more come along or how much time goes by, there will always be that one person who will be forever embedded deep inside your heart and soul. For me, that was Jaxson Callahan.

We were complete opposites. I was a senator’s daughter. My parents were always too busy keeping up appearances on the political scene to show me love, so instead they bought my affection.

He was the son of a woman who allowed men to use and abuse her as well as him, just for her next fix.

We became each other’s solace during that summer we met, creating a lifetime of memories in three short months. I provided him with a sense of hope that there was more than just the harsh reality of the life he had grown accustomed to, and he showed me a genuine love that I had been yearning for my entire life. We vowed to be together forever. I loved him and he loved me…. and nothing would keep us apart.

Nothing except the secrets that were hiding in that small seaside town.
Secrets that altered our destiny. We were never given any warning as we watched our future shake, crumble and disappear altogether, leaving us with nothing but memories of a bittersweet past.

Life can be beautiful.
Life can be kind.

And, life can be heartless…..because nothing about our situation was fair.


5 Star Review by Jen Skewes

I am not even sure words can describe how beautiful this book is.  I am a huge fan of Beth Rinyu and her writing.  I have read every one of her books and I have loved them all.  In fact Dailan O’Malley is one of my top book boyfriends.  But after reading Easy Silence I have to break the news to Dailan, because Jaxson Michael Callahan completely owned my heart after reading this book.  This is by far my favorite book from Beth.  It is unlike anything she has ever written and in ways very different from what I have read in the past.  It is beautiful and emotional.  I knew that it was going to be an emotional journey so I did everything to prepare myself for it.  But the truth is that I was in no way prepared for what she had in store for me.   It was nowhere near what I expected.  And I mean that in a really, really good way.  This book more than exceeded any expectations that I had.    

This is the heartbreaking and beautiful story of how Jaxson and Samantha met one day at the beach in North Carolina.  Jax saved her that day but little did they know that they would save each other in so many ways. 

Samantha is spending her summer with her grandmother who is suffering from Alzheimers.  On the beach she meets Jaxson and lets just say they did not get off to a good start.  They seemed to hate each other but Samantha wasn’t really sure why.  Jaxson seemed to have her all figured out, a rich spoiled brat who wants for nothing. Jaxson on the other hand has had a horrible childhood and is just trying to live life.  He is angry and bitter and just mad at the world.  But I think Samantha sees more to him than that hard exterior.  As time goes on and with Samantha’s persistence, Jaxson slowly begins to open up to Samantha in so many ways.  He learns to open up to her about his past, about his fears, but he also manages to open up his heart as well.   Sam teaches him what it is like to love and to be loved.  And for the first time Jaxson finds himself happy and even manages to smile once in a while.  Things seems be going perfect for them until it all comes crashing down.  Completely ripping away anything that they had together.  And you are left wondering if these two will make it?  If their love strong enough to survive?

It is so hard to write this review without giving away any spoilers so I am going to do my best to describe my true feelings when it comes to this book.  First off, I just loved Jax and Sam.  These two touched my heart and their story is one that I will never forget.  Beth Rinyu manages to pull out all of the emotions with this one.  I hurt for Jaxson and all that he went through.  I hurt for him because I saw the man that he is today and knew that deep down there was so much more to him.  And I really believe that Sam brought that goodness out in him.  He cared so much and while at times my heart hurt for him he also made it happy.  

Samantha was the perfect heroine.  I loved this girl!  She had her own issues with her family and she was so far from the person Jaxson thought she was.  But I loved that she never gave up on him.  She saw the good in him when no one else did.  She loved him and taught him so much about that one four letter word.  They were just perfect together.  

What I especially loved about these two is that, yes they were young but they both seemed wise beyond their years but at the same time had this young innocence to them.  It was the little things that they experienced together that made just made you happy.  They had such an amazing love but it wasn’t one that happened overnight either.  Their relationship wasn’t your typical teenage hot and sexy romance.  It was real and it was deep.  I loved the little moments between them that would make you smile.  But their journey wasn’t all unicorns and rainbows.  No, not at all.  There are heartbreaking moments in this story that will leave you cursing Ms. Rinyu.  And trust me I did.  She completely gutted me in a way that I wasn’t sure if I would be able to recover.  But then she gave me an ending that completely took my breath away.  It was beautiful and just perfect and I would not have it any other way.  This is one of those stories that will stay with you forever.  From the first moment that Jax and Sam met to the very end I was completely captured by them.   Their story will stay with me forever.  Even just thinking about it gives me goosebumps.  This one touched me in so many ways and left me with a hangover for days.  

Beth Rinyu completely blew me away with this one.    This beautifully breath taking journey wasn't an easy one but is definitely one worth taking.

“So, did you have a good birthday?” I asked.

“It’s just another day. Nothing special about it. I’d just as soon forget the day I was born.”

“Why are you so hard on yourself?” I second guessed myself for asking as the words spewed from my mouth.

“You just wouldn’t understand, Samantha.”

My whole life I hated being called that name, but hearing him say it was kind of nice. It was as if it was his and his name only for me. I was his Samantha, and he was my Jaxson.

“Maybe I could try. I’m a pretty good listener.”

He took another sip of his lemonade and placed it on the table. “I really have to go.” He stood up and looked down at the ground.

“I’m sorry. I – I didn’t’ mean to pry,” I said, standing up beside him. “It’s just, sometimes it helps to express how you’re feeling, and I’m –” He took me completely off guard when he grabbed my face in his hands, pulled me toward him, and placed a warm gentle kiss on my lips before smoothly slipping his tongue into my mouth. I was speechless as I pulled in my bottom lip still wanting to taste more of him when the kiss was over.

“You wanted me to express myself,” he whispered. “Well, that’s what I’ve been feeling from the time I walked up on this porch. I wanted to see if your lips felt as soft as they look. I wanted to get as close to you as I possibly could and breathe in your perfume that drives me crazy. And, maybe for one second of my life, I wanted to feel like I was worthy of someone like you. That’s how I was feeling, Samantha.”

Author Bio

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned Lesson, An Unplanned Life, Drowning In Love, A Cry for Hope, A Will To Change, Blind Side of Love, When The Chips Are Down and Easy Silence.

My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I'm a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of relaxation.
