My rating: 4 of 5 stars
You ever want a book that tugs on your heart strings, makes you ugly cry and leaves you completely satisfied when you finish? This is the book!
Second Song is the story of a singer reclaiming his life and his passion and finding love. It's the story of a man who felt a debt was owed fulfilling that debt and maybe discovering there is a happily ever after for him despite not looking for it.
This is the story of various types of redemption and rebirth for three main characters - former singer Sage Hazen who survived an insane stalker when his bodyguard and friend did not. And the guilt of his surviving is as constant as the music he stills hears even though he can no longer sing.
The bodyguard's brother - Antonio - feeling guilty because he was serving in the military when his brother died - builds his brother's dream of a security agency while taking care of Marco's widow and twin boys. When the opportunity to protect the young man his brother died trying to save presents itself, Antonio figures it's a sign.
Shiloh Galaxy. Sage's best friend - needy, abused and neglected, with the voice of an angel and the family from hell.
Second Song is Shiloh's chance at a better life, Sage's chance to reclaim a part of himself and Antonio's chance to make peace with his past before moving towards his future. And maybe they'll all eventually get their happily ever afters.
The writing is amazing, the story that Edie weaves is magical and I cannot wait to read Shiloh's shot at love in the next book. View all my reviews
