This is a standalone romance, BUT - I would suggest you read the other books in the series first. Start with Daisies & Devin and then The Life We Wanted! Those guys are in here - not a lot, but still. You don't want to miss those stories!!!!

Cue the crying. The ugly face, massive tears, and deep sobbing crying.

I experienced every emotion under the sun reading this story.

I thrive on emotional stories....they are really the ones I gravitate towards. TMG was all that and more. My emotions played out right beside Tess and Jon’s. Jon’s story gave me the heartbreak I craved.....plus his three little girls gave me the heartwarming feels that I also needed.
Tell Me Goodnight is another representation of how Ms. Kingsley can build a story of love, sadness, and rebirth.
This was my first book by this author and i have to say it was good written well and the storyline was sweet but sad.
I do prefer to read dark romance books with plenty of angst and fuckeduppery but this was actually nice change of style and pace for me!
I am a reader, not a writer. I cannot do this book justice, but I will try.

I feel like I need prints of some quotes from this book. And maybe real life people singing the songs. Even thinking of this book, I tear up, and I finished it days ago. I didn't even realize I could like a book that made me tear up in every chapter, but I really really do.
