“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.Read more ›

“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.”
Hello my name is Bree, I am a wife, mother, blogger and addict. I am addicted to Cole, Riley and Tara. Geesh!! I laughed! I cried.. (Oh how I cried!)
So awhile back we got this book for a blog tour by Lisa Edwards. Songbird. I recall thinking wow I loved the cover. It drew me in and made me want to know what was behind the pages. I read Songbird and I was trapped like a fly in the web. I have been patiently waiting since for book two. (If you missed what I am trying to say. Read BOOK 1!)
Now that we have cleared that up..
Let me say right now- book two does not disappoint.
All it managed to do and quite nicely was make me want more. Now.. Like RIGHT this second. Book two jumps right back in feet first! I am a goner. Cole slays me. He makes me want to sing songs and worship at his feet. He is alpha male 100% but with something special you just don't get all the time.
Riley.. Well come on. He is a soldier, he is caring and kind. I am captivated by his kindness but then I just have to say something is always off for me with Riley. No matter how good, how wonderful. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Then sometimes this book has me wanting to split my heart and soul and half. Smack down the middle people and stay on both sides.
Riley? Cole? Who?? I am more confused than Tara!
Wow - wow - wow! Emotions and wreckage of the heart. Should I? Shouldn't I? So many questions and let's be honest most of the time Tara stays mostly confused. She is up and down. She made promises, and she plans on keeping them. I want to scream from the top of my lungs what I think should happen and needs to happen. I however will not give anymore away. This book has drama and love triangles on lock down and angst - angst - angst! Delicious moments of sexual tension so thick a knife would not cut it! One of the best supporting cast of characters of any series. You find yourself wrapped in them too.
Loved it! Lisa can we discuss the ending? Can you give me a heads up, a hey this is next.... Something. Please - please .. I am not ashamed of begging. I will do it! Bravo I am tied up in knots, praying Cole is on his way over!
The whole Songbird gang is back in this epic love triangle. Riley is deployed and off fighting for his counrty. Cole and Tara are still vollying back and forth, fighting thier feelings for each other.
Tara is caught in a crap storm. Cole is her soulmate in every way. They are so compatible. She vowed to Riley that she would wait for him to return and agreed to marry him. I understand why she did this, as I understand why she will not break it off with him while he is fighting for his country. BUT she knew she had feelings for Cole and agreeing to marry Riley was always her second choice. Almost as if saying that since Cole is a manwhore, she will settle for Riley cause he will be faithful and true. You always have to fight for what you want! ALWAYS!
Cole is a changed man, in some ways, he is in love with Tara and has changed his manwhore ways. He is a great friend, strong, reliable, and honest. He also has never been in an actual relationship and when his heart is broken he reacts very poorly. Cole's reaction is part of this book will anger many people and make the hate his character. We must remember that Cole is like a kid learning how to ride a bike. He will falter and fall but he will learn and change. His family has some serious secrets and he needs to grow a spine but I am curous what the future will hold.
Riley is not a physical presence in this book, but he is a great presence. I do not like how he is kind of controlling. He doesn't want any part of Tara's money, nor does he want Tara to use it. He wants them to work as partners as they should, but does not treat her as his equal. Not as bad as her previous relationship but still not great. He should be supportive and understanding, not overbearing.
This is a great second installment and I can't wait for the next book. There are twists and turns and the happy ending is far away. Sometimes when we follow our heart others hearts get stomped on in the process. All is fair in love and war. There is the love but I feel the war is about to start!
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.
