Shh! (Oxley College)
by Stacey Nash
Release Date: February 23rd 2015
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Rate: Average (3 stars)


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.

Shh! is a story like no other I've read before. I didn't know the "Sexsomnia" existed, so I was definitely intrigued by this book and to see how the author would approach this subject in her story.

The story starts with Olivia and her boyfriend breaking up very publicly. She's one of those girls who's always liked everybody and everybody liked her, so she avoided any public drama or situation that would make her be in the rumor mill. But that's about to change the moment her boyfriend tells everybody he's breaking up with her because she touches herself in her sleep.

The author did a pretty good job at writing this story. She approached it very well, being a topic not written about before (at least that I know of), and added the perfect amount of drama, romance and friendship. One of the things I liked the most about this story is how the author wrote about the main character's situation and feelings. It was like I could perfectly know what Olivia was going through and could relate to her embarrassment.

I loved Olivia's relationship with Logan. He's a good guy, but I didn't truly connect with him until the very end of the story. I had the suspicion that he was hiding something and when I finished the story it was not clear to me why he would do some things while getting to know Olivia better.

In my opinion, in Shh! we get to see two versions of the main character: the it's-just-a-rumor Olivia and the it's-more-than-a-rumor Olivia. I would have liked to read more scenes with the last type and get to read how she was dealing it with. Although the author wrapped up the story pretty nicely.

Although Shh! is a different and enjoyable read, I didn't fall in love with it. I recommend it to you, if you're looking for something different from what you usually read in New Adult stories.

Writing for the young and new adult market, Stacey's books are all adventure filled stories with a lot of adventure, a good dose of danger, a smattering of romance, and plenty of KISSING! Hailing from the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, she loves nothing more than immersing herself in the beauty and culture of the local area.

Author of the Collective Series; Forget Me Not and Remember Me. And Oxley College Saga; Shh! and Wait!
