“Yes, there are two paths you can go by,
but in the long run
There’s still time to change the road you’re on.” Stairway to Heaven – Led Zepplin
This is going to have to be a short but sweet review. It would be a travesty to say too much and spoil it, but this one certainly runs you through a gamut of emotions. I have always been #teamRiley and although I totally and utterly adore him, after reading this book my allegiances are wavering. This by no way means I think any less of Riley but after seeing the friendship blossom between Tara and Cole even I have to admit they may just be the “better fit.” Arggggggghhhhhhhhhh I can’t believe I just typed that…I must erase that sentence…I must, I must, I must…
Songbird Caged starts off where Songbird finished. Riley is absent for this entire book as he is in the army. This leaves Tara with a lot of time on her hands to reflect and also be lonely. Tara has always valued her friendship with Cole, none more so than now and when life throws s*** at you, it is your friends that you need and in Riley’s absence, that falls to Cole.
It was great to see more of Cole and by see more, I mean “the real Cole,” there is a lot more there than meets the eye and Tara and Cole have a lot more in common than I ever thought. I do feel that they are incredibly well suited, Cole has made it blatantly obvious that he will do whatever he can to ensure that he and Tara become one, but he also respects the promise that Tara made to Riley, even if he doesn’t agree with it. As much as it pains me to say this, I do think they are soul mates, they have this undeniable connection that Tara will never have with Riley. It makes you question everything you read and believed in Songbird.
“I saw you two together tonight; I mean really saw you together, for the first time. You are so alike in so many ways, it’s scary. You finish each other’s sentences, you laugh at the same silly jokes that aren’t really funny…” – Kelli
Tara promised to wait the six months for Riley, but it is during his absence that Tara starts to analyse everything, they are so different but she can’t deny the chemistry that they have, but is that all it is? Things happen and with Riley stuck in some war torn country there is not a lot he can do about it, Tara makes decisions without him that he doesn’t necessarily agree with, but Tara wants to move on, she needs something to occupy her time. I did think that Riley was a bit old fashioned in some ways, especially about the man being the provider but he needs to get over that and let Tara do something for herself. However, the way that Tara handled it did have me angry and I felt so sorry for Riley being stuck where he was and not being able to be there for her when he obviously wanted to.
This is one of those love triangles where I am at the stage that I don’t really mind who she ends up with. It is funny as usually you have a clear front runner in your head, but both of these guys are really nice guys, so you can’t actually hate one. I am now more believing of “lust” with Riley and “love” with Cole, but whether Tara will actually see that I don’t know. I really am torn and that is certainly a novelty.
There is one particular moment that I could have killed Cole, sometimes the “douche” stills comes to the surface at the most inopportune moment. I could see why, but what he did was so uncalled for. I didn’t think he could come back from that but Lisa managed to persuade me, again!
So, I am on the fence, it is painful (they have spikes you know!) As much as I want her to be with Riley, I can’t deny that she should be with Cole. However, if that is the way the story goes in Songbird Freed, then Riley better get a happy ever after. My biggest torment is that Riley truly believes that he has found his soul mate in Tara, he loves her totally and unconditionally and I really don’t want to see him get hurt, to the point where I wished death upon him. Thinking about it though, I wonder if Lisa can write ménage?
Oh one more thing…#teamPops! So freakin adorable and so cheeky, I love him! The video…gahhhhhh the video!
“Cole, for goodness sake, tell her how you feel before it’s too late.”
“You came to see me…told me you had met someone special…your eyes met, and you felt like you couldn’t breathe, but you’d also never felt so alive.”
“live your life with Cole, and make every second count.”
A fab instalment to what is becoming an amazing trilogy, I cannot wait for book 3 and I really truly need it now! I can’t wait to see what way this is going to go, I just know that the rest of the journey is going to kill me.

I thought the first book was good but the 2nd is brilliant, I was completely drawn in from start to finish!!
I don't think I've ever read a book where my stomach has been in knots the entire time. Even when I had to stop reading (not by choice!) and I would be doing something & think about the book and I would get a fluttery tummy just thinking about Tara's
situation and of course the breath taking Cole.
There were a couple of scenes in the book that had me blushing too which left me speechless (and needing air!)...a certain
scene or 2 in Paris for example!
I am SO looking forward to book 3 and I am hoping it ends the way I want it to.
Keep up the fabulous writing Lisa and I would LOVE it if you could release the book early! I don't know how I'm going to wait until October!!
Definitely 5+ stars from me! Please note you have to read Songbird before Songbird Caged.
From the very first time I read it , from the very first book in this series, I knew this to be true.
Songbird Caged to me is the perfect representation of the heartbreaking fact that you can Love someone with all your heart yet be IN LOVE with someone else. That there is an invisible yet tangible connection that draws and links certain people that defies all reason.
Tara is faced with the reality of honouring a promise to a man she LOVES whilst fighting the temptation of the man she is IN LOVE with.
This book truly encompasses EVERYTHING that I love in a book. The character's with amazing dialogue; connection that is perfectly and masterfully established through talented writing that forcefully made me live this story; it was steamy, OH BOY WAS IT HOT; but above all was the clarity in which this story was told.
I can not wait to see how this story unfolds and I will gladly take a front row seat in the journey of Tara, Cole and Riley .
HOLY CRAP! Can I rate a book a zillion stars? Please? Because I was completely blown away!!! WOW! Just wow! You asked for more Cole, and my god did you get him. Each and every delicious inch of him! "Songbird Caged" is hands down my favorite book of 2014 so far. I am officially TEAM COLE all the way!!!!! I was in love with Riley in Songbird, but completely drawn to and intrigued by Cole. Well, now I can say I am officially and undeniably in love with a fictional character (which I didn't even know was possible to do). I have read a couple series with love triangles which I LOVED, but this one has def topped them all! I was actually surprised at how little Riley was in the book, but it worked very well. And all you team Riley people, don't you worry… just because he is not around much in this book does not mean he is out of the picture.
The story picks up where "Songbird" left off. Tara and Riley are engaged, and Riley has been deployed overseas, and will be there for 6 months. While Riley is gone this is when you start to see the most incredible side of Cole, and he begins to show his true colors from the inside. Him and Tara have become the best of friends, and with Riley being away Cole really helps to keep Tara's spirits uplifted. For once, you see him put someone else above himself. You begin to see just how deep his feelings for Tara have grown. The more time that passes, and the more time she spends with Cole, Tara finds herself battling with such intense feelings for him.. as well as her love for Riley. Wanting to keep her promise to Riley and wait for him, she continues to try and push Cole away… but that proves to be absolutely impossible as these two have such an immensely strong pull towards each other.
"You have the most tempting lips," he whispered, still fixated on my mouth. "One day, you're going to let me kiss them."
The sexual tension was at an all time high. You could feel the electricity jump out from the pages and shock you straight to your soul. Emotions ran wild throughout the entire book, and things you did not expect to see happen, happened. Just when you thought you had it all figured out, you were thrown through a loop and were left picking your jaw up off the floor. When I reached the end I was left wanting to pull my hair out and screaming at the walls all sorts of obscenities. How could Lisa leave the story off like that. Talk about an insane cliffhanger! That was soooooo not fair. It has been days since I finished reading this story, and I am still suffering from the absolute worst book hangover of my life.
I. NEED. BOOK. 3. NOWWWWW!!!!!
Lisa Edwards is beyond amazing! She has the ability to turn simple words into a beautiful and intricate piece of art. The images she is able to create using black and white letters easily turn into the most vibrant and colorful pictures, and you can't help but get lost in the amazing stories which she creates. She is one author everyone should keep their eyes on because she is definitely going places with her incredible talent.
