Product Description

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 fulfil 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let me introduce you to your new book boyfriend(s) 26 December 2013
By Mel - Published on

All readers are forever in search of those illusive books that stay with them long after the last words are read. So you will understand me when I shout out "AMEN , HALLELUJAH SISTER , I HAVE FOUND ONE " !!!
Was it the fact Lisa Edward gave us .....

A. Corporal Riley Hammond who says sweet swoonworthy things like "Do you think I could add to your happiness Tara?"

B. Tattooed Rockstar Cole Michaels who gave us the follow scene that may or may not have induced a need for 'personal time" out by this reader
"He ran his thumb over my swollen lips, then touched his thumb to his own.I can taste you, he said, his voice so hoarse it was barely audible. He leaned down so close I could feel his breath on my cheek.And I can smell you."

C.Tara, the protagonist that we saw evolve from the broken girl we first met to the woman that literally found her voice again

If these are the reasons that make Songbird into one of my favourite books containing some of my new all time favourite characters then I am going to have to say its due to all of the above choices that are brought together in an exceptionally well written book.

I didn't just read this book, I LIVED it and FELT it. The raw emotion, the angst, the love and the times that we could see as readers that were yet to be identified by the characters.

This is the first book in the Songbird trilogy, a debut novel by Lisa Edward.... not that you would know it as it was a polished and well thought out book.

Was it a cliffhanger??? .... No , but I NEED to know what happens next!

Was it a love triangle?? .... No, but I SOOOOO want it to be ... ok So I may have a boy that I have a tiny little crush on ;)... well, tiny as in a LAY DOWN I THINK I LOVE YOU kind of way


So I will leave you, and Tara , with this thought for Book 2 Sonbird Caged

"A lot can happen in 6 months Tara. People can change, circumstances can change and you've committed to standing still"
5.0 out of 5 stars Love Riley, Cole and Tara!!! 1 October 2014

This book was ah-mazing!! I didn't want to put it down. It was a long book, but didn't feel long. I am happy and sad that this book ended. Sad because I have to wait for book two and happy that I get more Tara, Riley and Cole.

Tara is trying to find herself after a two year long relationship that didn't go well. She was always told she wasn't good enough. She needed to find herself and where she belonged in life. She was instantly attracted to Cole when she sees him. Though she doesn't know his name her and her best friend Kelli, called him Mr. Hotbod. She was embarrassed to talk with him after Kelli and her big mouth. She then meets Riley through Kelli and her boyfriend Cooper. She wants him and feels drawn to him, but doesn't know if she can handle a long distance relationship. She has issues with trust and doesn't think she can handle constantly wondering what is happening. Will she give Riley a chance? Or does she open up to Mr. Hotbod?

Riley is content with his life. He doesn't need a girl since his girlfriend broke him. He is shocked by the connection he feels for Tara the moment he meets her. He doesn't want to push her because he feels she is special and wants a chance to get to know her. He knows it won't be easy having a long distance relationship, but knows it will be worth it. Can her convince her to give him a shot?

Cole is a manwhore. Always with a different girl and never gives a girl a second time. He is happy the way his life is going. Until he meets Tara and she turns his life upside down. Making him want things he shouldn't. Will he have his chance at Tara? Or does his manwhore ways scare her off?

This is an intense book. It had me on the edge of my seat hoping for things to happen or not to happen. I really LOVE Riley. He was so sweet and charming. Though he wasn't perfect, but who is?
Now I had a lot of issues with Cole, but by the end of the book he had me rooting for him.
I am so torn with who I want Tara to end up with. I think that I will always be Team Riley. I cannot wait for book two so I can see what happens between all these people.
I loved all the secondary characters also. Jason, Marcus, Jay, Kelli and Cooper. I really would like to see a book on all of them. This is a definite MUST read book. I think Lisa Edwards did an amazing job drawing emotions out of me and making me feel like I was in the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great debut! 30 November 2013

Right from the start this book appealed to me. I loved Taras narrative and you were immidiately thrown into the story where Tara is taking the big step of leaving a destructive relationship. Now she has to start over and find herself again. Tara is very likable and her friend is amazing. Tara meets new friends and new love interests, one that is more immidiate and one that is kind of brewing, building (and I like those). Her relationship with Riley is sweet, though it goes very fast, but it is
explained by their situation and I found it easy to accept and I also enjoyed to see Tara
reaching out after her bad experience. Cole on the other hand was to me the most interesting character and I hope I will see more of him in coming books. I think Songbird is a enjoyable debut and I will most definately buy the rest of the triology.

Well done to Lisa Edward on an amazing fabulous debut! Some debut books you read you can tell that they are a debut but not this book. It is beautifully written as if she has written a good dozen books already!
I got this book when it was free on amazon and I tell you I was truely suprised by how good it was (as some books that are offered can be disappointing). I would definitely pay for this book.
I absolutely loved the story and could not put it down once I had started it. I fell in love with both Riley & Cole. But am leaning a little towards Cole...I think!
After finishing this book I instantly bought Songbird Caged, I didn't realise it was a trilogy but my goodness I am so glad it is as it means more of Riley & Cole!

This was a twisty tale that made you wonder who is going to do what! Left you anxiously waiting for the next installment!

Tara is a beautifully talent young lady whose had a rough go of life and needs to see that she is worthy of everything she works for! Will she ever be able to trust again? Will she be able to stand on her own? Will she get back the dream she has worked her whole life for?

Riley is your traditional hot tattooed military yumminess! Protective, romantic, almost perfect! Will he be able to trust in Tara? Can he be the man that Tara needs? Will his job be too much for their relationship to handle?

Cole is holy tattooed, pierced, singing hotness! He is every temptation put on earth and he knows it! Can he be friends with Tara? Can Tara resist his charms? Is he really the man whore everyone sees? What makes Cole tick?

This is a love triangle with twisty turns. Who will be together when it all comes to an end? Truly a great read. Follow Tara, Riley and Cole along with a group of friends that will leave you yearning for more.
