In the first story we have a deejay, Desiree, who offers a negative opinion of a product over the airwaves only to have the company owner, Kyle Harrison, phone in during a trivia contest and "call" her on the pan of his product. He then wins the trivia contest and when he shows up to collect, is allowed (against rules) to go back to her broadcasting booth where he subsequently asks her out. He lives in Seattle and she lives in Anaheim and her first marriage failed basically because the deejay business kept her from staying in her husband's town, and having to commute long distance on weekends didn't work for the relationship. So can they work out another (for her) long-distance relationship when she is set against such because of her first experience?
And Syrie James has lived up to my expectations once I again! I flew through Songbird! It was amazing on all sorts of levels; there was really good plot and character development, so you actually felt for the characters instead of just lazing along wondering what would happen to them. The setting was believable (extremely believable for me since I have been to/live around the Southern California area and I have been to Seattle as well). However, for people who hadn't been to either area, Syrie James did a good job of describing what each setting looked like including all the sights, sounds, and hustle and bustle of each city.
The romance between Kyle and Desiree sometimes became a little too unbelievable for me (they fell in love after only 3 weeks? Seems a tad fast) but overlooking that their relationship was very adorable (I especially loved the scene where Desiree met Kyle's family).
Anyways, it was truly a great read and perfect for February and that Valentine's Day feel! I would recommend this for older teens and adults since sometimes it gets a little...saucy; let's put it that way.
