Was it the fact Lisa Edward gave us .....
A. Corporal Riley Hammond who says sweet swoonworthy things like "Do you think I could add to your happiness Tara?"
B. Tattooed Rockstar Cole Michaels who gave us the follow scene that may or may not have induced a need for 'personal time" out by this reader
"He ran his thumb over my swollen lips, then touched his thumb to his own.I can taste you, he said, his voice so hoarse it was barely audible. He leaned down so close I could feel his breath on my cheek.And I can smell you."
C.Tara, the protagonist that we saw evolve from the broken girl we first met to the woman that literally found her voice again
If these are the reasons that make Songbird into one of my favourite books containing some of my new all time favourite characters then I am going to have to say its due to all of the above choices that are brought together in an exceptionally well written book.
I didn't just read this book, I LIVED it and FELT it. The raw emotion, the angst, the love and the times that we could see as readers that were yet to be identified by the characters.
This is the first book in the Songbird trilogy, a debut novel by Lisa Edward.... not that you would know it as it was a polished and well thought out book.
Was it a cliffhanger??? .... No , but I NEED to know what happens next!
Was it a love triangle?? .... No, but I SOOOOO want it to be ... ok So I may have a boy that I have a tiny little crush on ;)... well, tiny as in a LAY DOWN I THINK I LOVE YOU kind of way
Would I recommend it ?? ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY. BUY IT, READ IT, LIVE IT
So I will leave you, and Tara , with this thought for Book 2 Sonbird Caged
"A lot can happen in 6 months Tara. People can change, circumstances can change and you've committed to standing still"
explained by their situation and I found it easy to accept and I also enjoyed to see Tara
reaching out after her bad experience. Cole on the other hand was to me the most interesting character and I hope I will see more of him in coming books. I think Songbird is a enjoyable debut and I will most definately buy the rest of the triology.
We start with our lead character Tara in a broken relationship with the appropriately named ex-boyfriend, Sh*thead. He is a true ass and so happy he was gone quickly. Tara left him when she soon discovered she had become a shell of a person she used to be. With the help of her friend Kelli, she was able to get on her own two feet and become the young women she used to be. Through another friend find a karaoke bar “Songbirds” and they quickly decide it’s their favorite place to be. She rediscovers her love of music and is able to start playing piano there a couple of times a week.
The owner of Songbirds is Marcus. He has the shaggy, just out of bed hair that looks effortless, sparkling eyes, and damn it... dimples! But when he is introduced by the girls hairdresser, Jason, they assume he plays for the other team and don’t take any notice to his friendly matter. He is the guy friend you love to have. He is easy to be around but don’t feel threated by him thinking he is going to make a play on them because, well he is very good friends with Jason. So they assume… Part of getting on her own two feet is hitting the gym. While working out, there is one guy… Mr Hotbod that catches her Tara’s attention. He has the lean gym body defined body without being all bulk. Every time Tara sees him she gets those butterflies but does not act on them. She would just rather watch from afar for now…
When Kelli’s boyfriend Cooper comes home on leave (he is active military) he brings with his best friend Riley. Oh yes… the tall, dark, and f**ckable handsome with the most beautiful blue eyes piece of man candy is hard to resist! When Tara and him meet they have that instant connection. She assumes he has girlfriends all over the county with the way he looks but she quickly discovers he falls for her just as hard and because of his military career, he doesn’t do relationships. They fall fast and hard for each other. Because they only have short periods of time together, there is lots of hotness going on! The author does a great job with these scenes as even though they are not full details of the act, you get that sense of hotness going on. It was just the right amount.
While Riley and Cooper are away at a training exercise, Tara and Kelli decide to head out for a night on the town. They hit up a nightclub but decide they wanted to see a live band. Turns out the club they go to has multiple floors and they had a live band playing. Tara knows the guitarist, Jay, and heads up towards the front of the stage. To the girls surprise, they quickly learn that the lead singer is no other than Mr Hotbod from the gym. He is that stereotypical Rock God. He loves the ladies and they love him. He oozes sex appeal on the stage and the ladies eat it up! After the set, Jay and Tara have a minute to catch up and that’s when Mr Hotbod aka Cole makes her appearance. He is so cocky and arrogant I loved it! With Tara’s ties to Songbirds, she is able to help get them a regular spot there.
With Riley being gone so much, Tara makes herself busy at Songbirds. The banter between her and Cole fantastic! There is so much sexual tension between and the innuendos fly back and forth and I’m like, just get together all ready! But nothing happens since she is with Riley. I found myself rooting for Cole. I’m not quite sure why, but I just loved the chemistry they have together! I think it’s my soft spot for the Rock Gods… hmmmmmm… maybe!
When a misunderstanding tears Tara and Riley’s relationship apart, both Marcus and Cole are there to pick up the pieces. But when Riley comes back, will Tara take him back? Will Marcus or Cole see the open door and make their moves? Or will Tara just decide she needs time to discover herself?? You just need to read to find out… I would highly recommend reading this and love any book with a good love triangle or square! I am dying to read the next book to see how the rest of the story unfolds!
Tara is a beautifully talent young lady whose had a rough go of life and needs to see that she is worthy of everything she works for! Will she ever be able to trust again? Will she be able to stand on her own? Will she get back the dream she has worked her whole life for?
Riley is your traditional hot tattooed military yumminess! Protective, romantic, almost perfect! Will he be able to trust in Tara? Can he be the man that Tara needs? Will his job be too much for their relationship to handle?
Cole is holy tattooed, pierced, singing hotness! He is every temptation put on earth and he knows it! Can he be friends with Tara? Can Tara resist his charms? Is he really the man whore everyone sees? What makes Cole tick?
This is a love triangle with twisty turns. Who will be together when it all comes to an end? Truly a great read. Follow Tara, Riley and Cole along with a group of friends that will leave you yearning for more.
