Really enjoying Songbird Series and how the stories and lives of the characters weave together.
You can read it as a stand alone but reading them in order you see more than if you read them alone.
I loved how Marcus never gave up on loving Kelly despite her misgivings about them being together and how people show themselves to the world isn't always who they really are. That the right person for you isn't always the one you imagine
wow what a read, this story the 7th in the Songbird series is seriously full of feels, a real rollercoaster ride of emotion.
The books starts of happy with the beautiful wedding of Sarah and Justin only to be followed by the gut retching death of Justin best friend and brother Blake.

3.5 stars -- I received a copy of this ebook through netgalley!
Full disclosure: I've only read the first book in this series (and quite awhile ago too) and then skipped to this book, so not sure if there was any additional backstory behind Nessa and Jimmy in those books, though I don't get the impression there was (except maybe a cameo of Nessa in Home?).
I did feel like I was missing something when I first started this book...like I wanted a bit of Jimmy and Nessa's past at the beginning so I could feel how they were together.... We did get some flashbacks throughout the book, but they were mostly of Nessa's past with Rosie and her mother, not as much with how Jimmy and Nessa came to be friends... Maybe I'm just greedy, but I would have loved to have just a little bit of that story, how they met, that kind of thing. So basically it felt like we were thrust right into the story at the beginning, and I kept thinking "but how did we get here?" I'm not sure I appreciated that we didn't learn about what happened on that night or the aftermath until a bit later in the book....and even then we only got certain snapshots. It made it harder to get a feel for them as a couple and even as characters...or at least it felt that way for me.
Despite the slow start, I did come to feel for both of our characters. They were each struggling with the aftermath of the accident, and the choices they made that led up to that, and how that affected their future. And once I got a feel for their chemistry together, I really did feel it. It just took a bit to get to that point for me.
The story isn't just about Nessa struggling to deal with her new circumstances wrt her hand....there was a lot of damage done to her from her childhood. My heart ached for so much of what Nessa was going through. There were some amazingly heart wrenching scenes in this book that got me in the feels. The ending felt a bit rushed to me...it wouldn't have normally, but she was just so stuck in her thought processes, that it was hard to believe that she could get out of it so quickly....but maybe that was just me. I wanted to see little breakthroughs here and there to prepare for the final breakthrough. But then again, now I'm sitting here thinking about it and there were some small breakthroughs, so maybe I'm just on crack.
It almost felt like Jimmy's story really fell to the side and Nessa's story was the main focus. I liked him as a character, but I almost wanted a bit more.
Really loved the rest of the band members...mostly Ralphie and Jace (which surprised me). They added some much needed humour and heart.
I know this seems like a negative review, but it really was an enjoyable story. I love the way Ms. Pearl writes. I just wasn't as enamoured as I'd expected myself to be, and this review it me trying to figure out why. Sometimes I think I'm harder on authors I love than on others....
4 stars: I received an ARC of this book from the author for my honest review!!
I was totally unsure of this book for the first little bit...technically I'm not sure how much of the book, b/c I read it while waiting at the airport....which I guess means I was totally sucked into the story, b/c I finished it in honestly just a few hours. I was totally sucked in by sweet Marcus, but I couldn't always understand his infatuation with Kelly. I was NOT sold on her until later on in the book, and I'm not sure if I ever was 100% sold on her. I'm not saying she's not an interesting character, and doesn't have her own sympathetic plights, but I guess I just loved Marcus so much that she never seemed good enough for him, you know?
So after all that, how did I still come up with 4 stars?? Well, a lot of that was with Marcus. While his judgment sometimes came under question, he just never failed to make me smile (and occasionally cringe) at his antics and just fantastic outlook in life. Reading about his history and infatuation with Kelly really was cringeworthy, but I liked the man he became. It was nice to read about a guy who's a little bit dorky and unsure of himself, and not the usual 100% unattainable hunk. And I guess in the end, despite my reservations about certain parts of the story (the steam scenes were up and down for me, parts great, parts meh), the good parts just outshone the rest. I guess part of me is still waffling about making it a 3.5 stars, but I just had such a big smile on my face for good parts of it that I say screw it! It's my review, I'll do what I want! :P
I still need to go back and reread books 2-4 of this series, but I enjoyed getting a little bit of Chaos cameo in there, and catching a glimpse of Jimmy (and hearing about Nessa). And let me tell you, if you're a fan of Chaos, there was some fantastic news at the end of the book about that...
Ms. Pearl just knows how to write an easy to read story with likable characters. And if you've ever been a fan of the underdog guy, then this is truly the story for you. I even liked that he was a little bit on the shorter side, b/c I married me a shortie and they are underrated.
3.5 stars -- I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.
Well crap. This book didn't work out as well for me as everyone else. I'm not sure if it was just a mood I was in, but I just didn't feel all the emotions that I was expecting to. Now, that's not to say I didn't tear up at points...but I had been anticipating some bawling, and it just didn't come.
Part of it is that I had been anticipating a tragedy at the beginning of the story, and so maybe I just wasn't allowing myself to get sucked in because I was too busy trying to figure out what the tragedy would be? I honestly don't know. All I know is that my cold heart didn't shed a tear. And that made me sad, and so I put the book down and went to bed.
Now when I picked the book up again the next day, I started to get my emotions involved a bit more. I really felt for Justin and all the guilt he was feeling. He definitely made me choke up. I definitely felt for his character and what he was going through. And I actually found the initial part of the book and what they were going through as a couple dealing with the tragedy (badly) to be unfortunately realistic, and I could totally see it happening. And even though this book touches on one of my button issues that normally has me saying a big nope, it was handled in a very realistic manner and it didn't bother me too much (ie it had me squirming a little, but I made it through). Though it probably did affect my connection to Sarah a wee bit.... It's not that I didn't feel for her, but I just ended up connecting with Justin's character more.
In the end I just don't think I was in the mood for such a devastating book, and so I just didn't allow myself to go all in. I felt like the middle part was really well done, but I wasn't convinced with the resolution. I feel so cynical, but I feel like Justin's talk with Marcus was just too easy, and it all wrapped up faster than I was expecting. Again, I don't really know if this was mostly a personal (mood) thing, or if the book itself contributed, but in the end I just wasn't satisfied.
So yeah. I hate writing these reviews. I hate being the odd one out. I had really been looking forward to this book, but in the end it just wasn't really for me. :(
