I can't wait for everyone to follow Tara, Riley and Cole's journey in book 2, Songbird Caged!

Woah. Just when things were seeing some clarity, Lisa Edward manages to shake things up once again!


I mean, I for one am not a fan of love triangles but the Songbird Trilogy has managed to be one of the few exceptions I’ve managed to actually LOVE!

Songbird Caged starts off right where Songbird left off: with Riley leaving on tour and Tara promising to wait for him.

But… of course, with Cole, our sexy bad boy rocker carrying a torch for her and an undescribable magnetism always pulling them t

Lisa Edward is a master storyteller. Her talented vision, combined with her flawless writing, sets a hauntingly beautiful backdrop for the second book in The Songbird Trilogy, Songbird Caged.

The characters are so real, so raw, I found myself getting lost in their world, forgetting about the 'real world.'

This novel is beautifully written with engaging characters and a plot that has you wanting more and more.

Bring on book 3!!

3.75 kept on my toes stars!

I was a little unsure how I wanted to rate this based on some issues I had. I can't really address those issues without giving away huge thing I will say is there is a love triangle! Even more than Songbird.

So Songbird Caged picks up where Songbird left off. The girls are sad that men got deployed for 6 months, and Kelli moves back to Melbourne to be closer to Tara. Only Tara has an issue with her hot water tank so Mr. Hotbod Cole invites them to stay

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

Poor Cole loves Tara and she loves him but tries to keep him at a distance because she's promised to wait for Riley. OMG what a cliffhanger. Poor Cole, will he win her heart, poor Riley, will he be the loser. Tara wants her cake and to eat it.

Am I allowed to give 10 star ratings, because this book is 10 star worthy.

I feel like I was given a huge gooey chocolate cake. Deliciously sinful and oh so good. I knew just two chapters in that I had found a real treasure in the reading world. Songbird Caged isn't just a book that holds your interest it’s a book that demands your attention. I couldn’t stop turning the pages if I wanted to and believe me I DID NOT want to stop.

I really don’t think I could have liked Songbird Caged more than I have. I truly was at full throttled in it from page one. No, scratch that, I had a weekend marathon starting with Songbird (book 1) and once I finished it I did not blink before starting on Songbird Caged. And I could not for the life of me put it down. I was hooked and I wanted nothing more than to devour every single word, and soak in every emotion the characters were feeling.

Ok, so....Irish gets deployed. This isn't the I can talk, but it will be limited deployed from the first book. This is hard core top secret gone. Let's just say things come out and Tara seriously wonders about them. Ever her rock, Cole is ther

I have a confession to make. I’ve changed teams and even though I still love Ryleigh, I am now Team Cole.
If you read my read my review for Songbird, the first book in the Songbird Trilogy, you would realise that I was looking forward to reading Songbird Caged. However, I was not prepared for how much I LOVED this book! I didn’t think it was possible, but it was better than the first book.
BTW, if you haven’t read Songbird then you need to read this book before reading Songbird Caged. * Spoiler al

I love and hate Lisa Edward. Yea I said that and it’s the truth and only those who have read this exceptional book will understand why. First off Lisa is an amazing writer. She has a way with words that is simply beautiful. She makes you fall in love with the characters, but alas here is where the problem lies. I fell in love with both Riley and Cole. How can I decide. I began Songbird Caged fully team Riley. I spoke in great lengths about my anger over the prospect of a potential love triangle. ...more

Some stories are meant to be told. Some characters are meant to be heard. Some people are meant to write .

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.

I just stumbled upon Songbird and I can say this is one of my best reads of 2014. Loved it so much I immediately bought the 2nd one and just finished it, it was even better than the first. The chemistry between Cole and Tara was beautifully written. When Tara cried in Paris I truly felt her pain and cried right along with her. I cannot wait to see where you take Tara in the next book:)

It's hard to write anything about this book without spoiling it. However I will try. I LOVED that we finally got to know Cole much better. I kept wanting more of him in Songbird and my wishes came true. We got to meethis family and the important people in his life. I got a better understanding of who he is and why he acts like he does. I loved him with Tara and their chemistry is just amazing. Tara had alot to think about in this book (not only in the romance department) and in many ways she fru ...more

If you thought the sexual tension was hot in the first book, wait until you read this one.

Tara has made a promise that she fully intends to keep despite Coles obvious attempts to change her mind. But, she is tested as secrets are revealed and the chasm between Riley and her grows even greater.

Cole has his own demons that he’s fighting. They’re threatening the life that he’s made for himself and he’s not willing to give in just yet. But when tragedy strikes when they least expect it, everyone m

I gave this book 5 stars.
This is book two in the Songbird series and cannot be read as a standalone.

This is Riley, Tara and Cole's story.

This leaves off where book one ended, Riley is going on leave and can't tell Tara where he is going. He will be gone for 6 mths and he asks her to marry him and to wait for him. She says yes. So in the beginning of this book Riley is gone, and Tara has to learn to live without talking to him everyday and spending time with him. She in turns leans on Cole her

If you have not read Songbird by Lisa Edward you need to stop reading this review immediately and go one click it. There are spoilers from the first book in this review and trust me you don't want to spoil this!

Since you better have read the first book, you already know that Tara is engaged to Riley and is trying to wait 6 months for his return from a top secret special ops mission. She has no idea where is or what he is facing everyday. As as have said before, I like Riley, I

I don’t even know where to start. Lisa Edward did it again and I cannot wait until the third book comes out. Be prepared for drama! I love, love, love, drama and the whole love triangle that is going on is drama!

You have Riley, who is a soldier for his country and on a tour, while even though Tara promised she would wait for him, she has Cole in her corner who is confusing the crap out of her feelings. I bet you can all see where this is going. ;) Like I said, DRAMA!

Finally, I have read it after contemplating if I should, cos I can't stand reading her mix up feeling for both men. I think I would too, I mean come on who doesn't?

I was all for #teamriley since book one and after much convincing that I'm definitely a #teamriley, I ended up cheering for Tara to get together with Cole. Sorry Riley, I've tried my best.

Ok, so I feel like I've been on an emotional roller coaster. So many ups and downs, ins an outs.
Couldn't help feeling sorry for Tara, sure many woman and men have loved two at once.
That just means what? That the person doesn't understand love or that they don't understand different types of love.

While the reader should side with the man serving his country out of loyalty, I found myself rooting for Cole. His character just seems to be a perfect fir for Tara.

I knew that this was not the last of the love triangle between Tara, Riley and Cole. But did you have to leave it off like you did, really Lisa????

This book was amazing. I was so happy to have lots and lots of Cole to keep me on the edge of my seat. I have been Team Cole from the beginning but Lisa has made me love Riley also. And not just a little.

This book was very angsty and I love that in a book. It starts off right where Songbird ended with Riley going off to serve hi

Songbird Caged picks up where the first book, Songbird leaves off. We continue to see Tara struggle with the feelings she has for both Riley and Cole. She is deeply in love with two men. Two very different men! While Songbird focused on Tara and Riley’s romance, this installment shifts the focus to the building relationship between Tara and Cole.

Riley remains a strong force in Tara’s life, even from thousands of miles away. He has faith that Tara will honor her promise to wait for

Raw, drama filled, complex, intriguing, gripping story that had me 100% invested in.

Tara made a promise to Riley that she would wait for him. But it is hard to keep that promise to the person that is far away when there is another one you have also emotional feelings for.

Lisa did a fabulous job in writing Taras battle with the feelings she has both men and temptation towards Cole.
