My Teaser:

“Roger was the handler who took me,” I say, lowering my voice as shame–shame -I know I don’t deserve–sickens me.  “And in The Program he was making trades. I gave him a kiss in order to keep a memory, one that led me back to James.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, The Program, so I am hoping this one is as good.

The Right Song by Shane Morgan

The Right Song The Right Song by Shane Morgan. Published July 31, 2014 by TSW books. CDN $3.28 Kindle edition.  (Although I was given a free copy by the Author in exchange for an honest review. )

Pain never truly goes away, until you find something deeper and meaningful that cures the heart and fills it with love.

That is what Aurora desperately wants to believe. That somehow her music can save her, or even touch the unreachable heart of the guy she has liked for years.

Rora yearns for his attention and wants to experience this so-called love that could possibly end her long suffering and inspire her to chase after her dreams.

In deeply understanding the feelings of others and herself, will Aurora give up on ever finding true happiness, or will an intriguing soul teach her about the greatest song ever written? (Goodreads Excerpt)

I have to say that once I got into this book it really captured me and kept me reading. The beginning of the book is a little slow, but it picks up and the story draws you in. I really enjoyed the main character Aurora. I liked her spirit and enjoyed watching her emotional reactions to the events that takes place and people around her.

I am not a big fan of love triangles, but the way this was written it was easily enjoyed. **Spoiler** I think you knew from the moment she connects with Deagan that he is her soul mate. I never really liked Milo and we don’t really get to know him much other than Rora’s crush. I think the author did this on purpose so that the reader connected more with Deagan from the start. He is more of a distraction and a way for Rora to know what is truly in her heart. The chemistry between them is amazing.!**end of spoiler**

I loved the musical aspect of this book. I thought it was pretty cool that the author wrote the songs that are in the book. Very original and made it more personal to me.

Overall I enjoyed the book. It was unique and entertaining, but I think it could have used another go around with a really good editor. 3 ½ stars for me.

My Teaser:

Adrian pulled his fingers out of Gray’s hand and grabbed her by the shoulders. “You are under a spell,” he said roughly. “I’m not.” And then he released her and began walking quickly away.
