Review: Songbird by Lisa Edward

Songbird (Songbird #1)
By Lisa Edward

Every relationship changes you, some for the better, others can shatter your confidence and almost destroy you.

For the musically talented, twenty-four year old Tara O’Connell, her relationship with Stephen almost broke her, until Tara found the strength to leave.

Now she is on the road to discovering that it is never too late to pursue your dreams and follow your heart.

As Tara’s self-belief grows, she meets two men she is instantly drawn to who will change her life forever.

Corporal Riley Hammond is a soldier in the Australian Military Special Forces. With his smiling sapphire blue eyes, Tara falls for him instantly. He is thoughtful and caring, and gives her the support and love she needs.

While Cole Michaels is the overconfident singer in a popular local band. His charisma, emerald green eyes, tattoos and piercing, have girls falling at his feet. But while Cole pushes
Tara’s buttons, he also pushes her to reach for the stars.

Both men couldn't be more polar opposites, but both offer Tara different qualities that she needs to fulfill her destiny.

As Tara continues her journey, she will discover fate can offer you more than one path. Her fate is in her own hands, and the choices she makes, will shape her life forever.

Jamie says...

This story blew me away!  And yes it was a cliffy!! Makes me wanna scream and cry!  I was so engrossed with this story that it made me start to feel like it was a reality, almost like you could live this story for yourself.  Which is why I have to give it a 5 star I can't do a 4.5 like a normally do when I love it and its a cliffhanger.  SO yes it caught me twisted me up and spit me out... well in a good way (hahahaha!)  This story will make you think how can she choose between 3 men that are all so different, and no I still don't know who I would choose!  

Tara- She is a woman who was raised to be prim and proper and always be perfect at everything she did, that's why she ended up in a relationship with a very controlling man, she finally had enough and was ready to start life over.  She moved out to live with her best friend.  She didn't realize her life was going to get turned upside down by just going to a bar called songbirds.  That is where she meets her first man Marcus he is the club owner who Tara actually thinks is gay so she doesn't hold back with him, she hugs him and kisses his cheeks and changes her clothes in front of him, but he is gay so it shouldn't matter but does it, because he isn't gay at all and falls in love with Tara.   Then steps in Riley her roommates boyfriends best friend.  He is the epitome of sexy man who Tara and him have wicked chemistry and they fall in love instantly but the only problem he is in the military and doesn't even live by Tara can they make it work?  She knows he owns her heart but could she live a life of never seeing him but every 2 month's or so?   Then you have COLE, yes secretly I think he is my favorite (hehehehe) is your typical rock star who gets what he wants and any woman he wants, but when Tara shows up at the gym he works out in things change for him, he secretly wants to know her and everything about her... when they finally meet when she shows up to see his band (not knowing he is the lead singer) he knows she is something special but she has a BF so he will just have to wait for his chance.  

Riley- "I'd built up all these walls, and convinced myself I was happy on my own just focusing on my career, and then with one smile you completely turned my world upside down."  He stroked my cheek.  "I can't guarantee that this will be easy, in fact I know it's going to be tough at times, but I also know I don't want to be without you." 

Cole-  I could fell his breath on my neck as he whispered.  "I'll still remember the night we met as the night that changed my life.  You're my exception to every rule."

Marcus-  He stepped back.  "It's not just about what you want, it's about me and how I feel....about you."  His voice trailed off as he spoke and he looked down at his hands and sighed.  " Do you have any idea what it's like to be in love with someone for so long, and have to watch them be in love with someone else?"

This story has some crazy twists and turns and before I leave I have to say I was impressed that even though these 3 guys were all intrigued by Tara there was no cheating on Tara's part but I have a feeling things are gonna get really sticky in the second book.... You have to read this!  It will make you want more like yesterday... so adding another to my most anticipated sequels of the year!!!
