Release Blitz: MY SONG FOR YOU by Stina Lindenblatt‏

Release Blitz: 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.

Callie 

We have a party today, Logan said. You come? 
The alarms went off again, drowned out by the need to be the ideal mom to a deaf boy with a cochlear implant. 
The correct sentence is We are having a party today. Would you like to come?’” I said to Logan. 
Sounds good to me, Jared repliedWhat time and where? He flashed his dimples, and my heart temporarily stuttered to a stop. Father and son were definitely going to kill me if given a chance. 
No, no. I was just telling Logan so he could repeat the correct sentence. Its the only way hell learn. 
But Jared will come, right? Logan looked at Jared with those puppy-dog eyes no mere human could say no to, ignoring me and that he was supposed to repeat the sentence correctly. 
I inwardly sighed and gave up the exercise for now. I had something more urgent to deal with. Im sure Jared has more important things to do than come to Mrs. Rogers’s birthday party. To Jared, I said, Shes our neighbor. She looks after Logan while Im at work. Itnot a big deal. Just Mrs. Rogers, Logan, and me. Nothing like those big celebrity parties he was used to. The parties he attended with his on-again, off-again supermodel girlfriend. 
Shes nice, Logan said, referring to Mrs. Rogers. You like her. 
Jared unfolded himself to his full height. He was a good few inches taller than me, and I wasnt short by any stretch of the imagination. Well, if you like her, then I know I will. Tell me the when and where and Ill be there. 
That wont be necessary, I bit out. Im sure youre busy. With groupies. With your band. With anything that doesn’t involve me and your son. 
As it is, Im available. I just finished up with a band event for a local radio station. 
Its going to be boring, Jared. Its not one of your rock-star parties. You wont have fun at all. Its just gonna be pizza and birthday cake. 
His mouth did that annoying trick of sliding up to one side. Damn sexy smile. Rock-star parties are overrated. And I could go for some pizza and birthday cake. 
And balloons, Logan added. Dont forget balloons. He didnt bother to sign that, and I didnt push it. As much as I didnt want him to forget he was part of the deaf community, some days it was easier just pretending that plan didnt exist. 
I wont forget, I said. I promise. To Jared I added, I can guarantee youll be bored. Im sure theres a party youd much rather hang out at. Maybe with a few celebrities. I nodded with finality. Problem solved. 
That damn sexy smile was still there. As were the damn sexy dimples. The guy wasnt playing fair. He checked something on his phone. Nope, no rock-star parties with celebrities on todays calendar. So Im definitely free. 
My traitorous nephew whooped at that news. 
Seriously, why do you want to do this? I asked, somehow not stomping my foot at how stubborn he was being. Father was definitely like son. Logan could be pretty stubborn too. 
Because I havent seen you in something like five years. I thought we could catch up. Maybe give me a break from all these crazy rock-star parties Ive been attending. He winked at me.  I had no idea what it was about that wink, but combined with the dimples, it was lethal. If I hadnt been in full-out panic mode, my panties would have dampened with need.  Okay, maybe there was a little dampening going on, but he didnt need to know that. A dampening you could blame on the long drought—aka my lack of sex life. 



Yet another powerful novel by Stina Lindenblatt – wow.

Is it just me or are the plotlines getting better by the book. Well at least I believe that the storytelling is getting stronger for sure.

I think it can not be long now until this author makes the final 5th star her own with me …

It is not that those plotlines are so unique that they have never been told before – no – that would be exaggerated . It is more the way this author tells them. I have read now several books from her and she even managed to “sell” me a sports novel in a way that I could relate to it – so far, my extend in sports started and ended with boxing and MMA fights and I am ok with that.

To be honest – at the beginning I did not like Callie very much – because she kept something from Jared that I personally feel she had no right to unless she had good reasons and her reasons were not good enough for me.

I can not venture into explaining good reasons as that would spoiler to much. Only so much has to be said – I understand loyalty but there is also a false loyalty

Jared is a great guy – I am thinking very hard just now if there was anything about him that I disliked. God I even loved his mother – and I think not everybody can say that about her (book)boyfriend.

As with her other novels – Ms. Lindenblatt creates a vivid picture of the characters and their surrounding environment. This makes it easy for the readers to envision the story while reading it – and I admit I stood in a supermarket at one point and was trying to get stuff from a shelf – thinking “WHERE ARE THOSE JAREDS” when you need them.

Great read …
