I made a choice.
I made a promise.
A promise to wait six months.

It should be easy … but it’s not.

I’ve uncovered secrets and lies. Now, I’ve questioned the commitment we made to each other.
The distance between us grew, and cracks in the relationship started to show.

Only one person could fill the void…my best friend.

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 th

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!!

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

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

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. ...more

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 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.

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

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:)

I am absolutely in love with this series!!! Blown me away thus far. Both Cole and Tara are so hot together! The hotel in Paris... Wow! And now that they are finally together.. So happy for the both of them.... But the ending?! Seriously.... What are you doing Lisa?!?!? Come on Oct. 28th!

Stayed up all night reading this one. Wow! Smoking hot book. Cole is just amazing. Sorry, Team Riley, he just can't compare to Cole. Although his Paris shenanigans were abhorrent, he was hurt and retaliating. I could totally forgive him. On to book 3! ...more

Songbird Caged is amazing! I loved it! It is written in Tara's POV, like book 1, Songbird. If you haven't read Songbird yet, you need to read that before reading Songbird Caged. This review may contain spoilers from book 1, so you may want to stop reading if you haven't read it yet.

Songbird was all about Tara finding herself and falling in love with Riley, whom I really liked most of the time and other times made

First off, I have got to say that I couldn't put this book down. I started it one day and finished it in the middle of the night, read straight through.

This series centers around a love triangle. I do like Riley. He's a great guy, but I just don't feel a connection between Tara and Riley like I do between Tara and Cole.

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

4.5 Cole STARS!!!

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.

So this book is just a whole huge roller coaster of emotions. Now that we have all become invested in these friendships and relationships they are all put to the test in this book.

Tara and Riley are engaged but he is gone for 6 months , maybe more or maybe less , she has promised to wait for him despite them only being back together for a matter of weeks. They are in love and n either wants to be without the other. It may seem this will be Tara's biggest hurdle in the story but that is not true.

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 h

I was dying to read this book. I loved Songbird and I couldn't wait to find out what happened with Tara, Riley and Cole. It took a lot for me to like Cole at the end of book one so I was hoping he would knock my socks off in this book, but.........
He ripe my heart out and shredded it to pieces and then stomp on it and then handed me my heart saying here I really never wanted this. (Sorry I know harsh, but that's how I felt.) This book made me feel so much and that is good!!

The whole Songbird gang is back in this epic love triangle. Riley is deployed and off fighting for his counrty. Cole and Tara are still vollying back and forth, fighting thier feelings for each other.

Tara is caught in a crap storm. Cole is her soulmate in every way. They are so compatible. She vowed to Riley that she would wait for him to return and agreed to marry him. I understand why she did this, as
