Review: My Song For You by Stina Lindenblatt

At twenty-one, Jared Leigh had been prepared to give up the life of a touring musician to be a father after getting his girlfriend pregnant. When she told him that she’d gotten an abortion, Jared was devastated. Now at least he has the groupies to keep him company—until a blast from the past rocks his world.

Callie Talbert hasn’t seen her sister’s ex since high school. But after Callie bumps into Jared while she’s grocery shopping with four-year-old Logan, there’s a spark that wasn’t there before. Jared quickly realizes that her deaf “son” is the same age his own child would have been. When Jared demands to know more about Logan, Callie panics. There are things she just can’t tell him. Besides, Jared’s a bad-boy rocker, not a dependable father figure. He’ll move on to his next gig soon enough . . . right?

Trouble is, Jared refuses to be pushed away, and the more quality time he spends with Logan, the more he’s captivated by the woman Callie has become. When the truth is revealed, Jared only hopes that the three of them have what it takes to become a real family.

Kristine's Thoughts:

** I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

My Song For You is the second book in the Pushing Limits series but can be read as a stand alone. Each book is about a different band member. I had the opportunity to read This One Moment first but it is not necessary in order to follow along.

I seriously think that this series is getting better with each book. This One Moment was decent but My Song For You was so much better. The characters were more likeable, there was more chemistry, the plot was easier to follow and it gave me way more feels.

The story was by no means unique or original but Lindenblatt made it feel like it was with the way she captured the emotions between Callie and Jared.  Finding love can be a complicated thing but even more so when you throw in secrets, lies and a 4 year old boy. I feel like she did a great job of capturing the turmoil that both characters were dealing with.

I adored Callie and Jared but Logan stole the show for me. Every part in the book where there was any kind of interaction with him I found myself smiling. Probably the reason that I liked Callie and Jared so much was because of how they interacted with him and the way that no matter how complicated things got, they never used him as a pawn. They always had his best interest at heart.

This book is a finish in a few hours kind of book filled with romance, misunderstandings, lies and a whole lot of heat. It has everything to satisfy the romance itch in all of us. In my opinion, this series is getting better with each instalment. I can't wait for the next one!
