David's SongDavid's Song by A.R. Talley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What an unbelievable romance!  I loved it from the beginning through the very end, and I know I just have to read the next book in the series!  I honestly don't know where to start except to say that while contemporary romances don't usually resonate with me, this one does.  It is an LDS fiction book, but don't let that put you off.  It is is never preachy.  There are no sex scenes, and there is only one minor "swear" word.  Morals are stressed throughout, and I honestly was not certain how the book would end.  I'm not going to hint at the ending except to say it is one wild ride.

I was enthralled with David Andrews.  Goodness, he probably is the epitome of every woman's fantasy.  I never really liked Jeremy--sorry.  And Annie, well, she is one complex woman.  I can identify with men never being attracted to her--my problem as well.  Yes, I've had three men in my life, but they all ended up being jerks.  Kind of like the bad version of David and even worse.  But that's another story.

I found myself feeling very conflicted during this book.  I am always rooting for marriages to stay together.  I don't agree with cheating, having affairs, getting divorced to marry someone else, etc.  Talley spins such an amazing story that I honestly didn't know how I wanted the story to end.  I knew wasn't supposed to ever hope that a woman would leave her husband, but I certainly struggled.  Rarely has an author made me feel "off kilter" like that. But it made the reading of the book even more intriguing.  I have to admit that I didn't do much skimming of this book, and so it took me longer than usual!  I highly recommend this romance!!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated in any way, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

  4. I always love reading a book that I'm sad to leave when finished with the last page. It sounds like this book was on of those.
