I received Cardinal in return for an honest review as part of the release event. Jen’s life has taken a dramatic spin downwards from the fact that her boyfriend is married to another girl, her apartment catches on fire but it’s just water damage, and she’s lost her job. When the chance to leave town presents itself Jen takes the chance to visit the brother she’s been putting off visiting. What should be a chance to relax, re-evaluate and figure out what she wants to do with her future may not be what is on the agenda.

Jen figures this is a perfect time to work on her music but is drawn into working as a bartender at the same club as her brother and the sexy neighbor from upstairs. The more time that Jen spends with Latson the more they start to connect, and after she has a chance meeting his nephew they make it official. When the chance to tour with his brothers band comes up she’s torn between love and her music. At latson’s instance she takes the chance it’s only 5 months what could happen? Will their love survive the 5 months that they are on tour? Will is past come back to break them up?

I like Jen she’s a total sweetheart who needs a good guy after what happened with her ex and I think Latson is just what she needs. They each have issues with pasts but they learn to accept each other and move past them after almost losing each other. I like the chemistry between the two it works well for them, and I’m a sucker for a happy ever after. I also liked getting to know her brother Pete and his girlfriend Jules they are a great addition to Jen’s life.

I haven’t read the prior book so I was a little nervous but Cardinal is my kind of story so I knew I couldn’t pass up the chance.

This is the first book that I have read from author Sara Mack and let me just say how thrilled I am to have been able to find this author. I happened accrossed her books when I was involved in a charity auctions that sold signed books. I fell in love with the cover and had to have it. But then I feel in love with the book. The characters in this book just take your breath away and break your heart at the same time. While you are reading this book you are forever rooting for Jen and Latson. Latson has a dark past and he carriers around a lot of demons with him in his life. He has responsibilities that require him to do things in his life that he never felt he would be doing at his age. But all the while he is happy to be doing it at least on the outside. Then by chance he meets Jen and his world starts to tumble away. But Latson is a stubborn man and Jen doesn't give her heart too easily and well lets just say life then gets in the way. Can they find a happy medium with all the twists and turns that they are forced to take to even have a relationship? Well you will have to read the book to find that part out. But let me say I stayed up way to late last night finishing this book because I couldn't put it down. And I don't regret a second of my morning book hangover. Sara Mack cheers to you for a wonderful job. Well done can't wait to read what is next that you have out there.

Oh Jen Elliot, how I missed you. When Sparrow ended, I know for a fact that I wasn't the only one who wondered what was next for Jen. She gets sort of a rough break, and you can't help but feel really bad for her. Cardinal starts where Sparrow left off, and this poor girl gets burned further. With nothing left to lose she packs up her car to go stay with her brother. After so much disappointment, Jen decides to put her happiness first and guys last. It's bad timing when this incredibly great guy named Latson walks on the scene. His entrance is pretty hilarious, by the way.

This entire story I just kept thinking I wish Jen and Latson were real. As a reader you can't help but be swayed by how fun their interactions are. These are people I'd absolutely love to grab a beer or coffee with, because they aren't artificially perfect but perfectly flawed.

In fact I wished most all of these characters could be pulled from the pages, because Sara Mack could write solid, lovable characters in her sleep. That's what really makes Cardinal shine, and it's the biggest reason this author's books are an auto-buy for me.

Cardinal as a story is like a nice cup of tea and your favorite throw blanket, and the warmth and realness of this cast of characters is a standard all contemporary romance should strive to achieve. I also have to note that the song lyrics throughout this story are rich with angst and heart, just beautiful stuff.

I won't do a summary of the book. Just kick back on your couch and enjoy a truly sweet romance. And if this is your first introduction to Sara Mack's work, good heavens. Go look up Guardian and Sparrow, because you're missing out.

This is Sara's best book yet. I thought I loved Sparrow, but Jen's story was so much more. It has everything I desire in great story, swoon worthy male, a strong willed female lead, and an adorable child.

We meet Jen in Sparrow, and she didn't receive her happy ending, I was so happy when Sara announced that she was writing Jen's story.

Jen is having a tough time, we learned in Sparrow that her boyfriend was a lying cheater. To make matters worse she loses her beloved job, and her apartment building catches fire. Her brother convinces her to come to Chicago and stay with him. That is where we meet a sexy, tattooed, former rock star. Latson (Gunner) is not your typical bad boy. He is raising his nephew, while running a successful nightclub. While Jen has necessarily sworn off men, she has decided to live by her Cardinal rule of doing whatever it is that makes her happy. Music is her passion. Add in some wonderful secondary characters and this book is full of love, laughter, some heartache, and music.

This is going on my best of 2015 list. I think others will enjoy it, if they love a good NA, Contemporary romance. It has all the feels, and yes, even a happy ever after.
