When rumors start circling,
Do you walk the other way?
Or give them something to talk about?

She was the one I always secretly wanted
But it was never meant to be,
I landed myself in the friend zone.

He was my high-school crush,
Who grew up into the single sexy dad,
Putting his life on the line with every fire he fought.

One spin around the dance floor has our friends talking,

Start your review of Rumor Going 'Round (Lyrics and Love, #3)
This was a laid back story with no drama, no angst, just good old fashioned romance. Lindsay and Tucker have known each other forever, but recently they’ve really begun to notice each other. Tucker slowly begins to take a step here and there to bring himself into a new orbit with Lindsay and soon they are a thing.

Dear friends, put the words 'firemen calendar' in your search bar and enjoy.

I was expecting this to be heavily based around a small town community’s ability to gossip due to something they think they see, and while that really was not the case, it was still sup

5 star review of Rumor Going ’Round (Lyrics and Love #3) by Samantha Lind
Samantha Lind is a relatively new author to me and why that is I have absolutely no idea. Rumor Going ‘Round was a well written story that ticked the boxes for me. This was a beautifully written story that had me riveted from start to finish.
I fell hard and fast for Tucker, he was totally swoon worthy and I loved Lindsey. They have been friends since they were children and the friends to lovers genre is one that I enjoy. Li

Samatha Lind is a fairly new author to me and with every book I pick I promise myself I will read more from this very talented author, well this time it’s going to happen because Rumor Going Around was a book that touched me on so many levels and I fell hook, line and sinker for Tucker.....
Tucker and Lindsay have been friends all their life, they grew up together and if Lindsay is honest with herself she will admit to hiding feelings for this swoon worthy, single dad firefighter. The problem is

Rumor Going Round is a beautifully written childhood friends to lovers romance story that will warm your heart and satisfy your reading soul.
Tucker and Lindsay have been friends since childhood, and while Lindsay has had a crush on Tucker since High School, he has never shown any signs of feeling the same.

I received a free ARC copy of this book from the author prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Rumor Going 'Round the third book in the Lyrics and Love Series by author Samantha Lind, of who I am a huge fan and is pretty much an auto buy author for me. I loved the first two books in the series - Marry Me and Drunk Girl, and this one was also one I loved. The books are not connected to each other but rather to songs and this one is the Lee Brice's song.

In this story we meet Lindsay
Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)

When friends Tucker and Lindsay share a dance one night, something in the air between them shifts, and a rumor is born in their small town. Will they chance moving their friendship into something more intimate?

This is a really, really low key, angst free simple friends to lovers romance, and I appreciated that about it. There's no over the top drama, no psycho exes, no broken psyches, just two really likable people who finally start to see each other as more than simply friends. Lindsay

Rumour Going 'Round the third book in the Lyrics and Love Series is another smash hit for Samantha Lind. I loved the first two books in the series - Marry Me and Drunk Girl but Lindsey and Tucker just blow me away - it is a brilliantly Swoon Worthy book that will leave you with a big satisfied smile on your face. If you are a lover of books by Kaylee Ryan and Lacey Black then this series will be right up your street.

SQUEEEEEEE! I just love the way Samantha Lind's books always leave me feeling! Rumor Going 'Round filled my heart up with all the warm and fuzzy feelings and swept me up in such feel good heartwarming world. If you love a good single dad, small town, friends to lovers read as much as I do this book is an absolute must read.
Tucker is the sweetest of men. A fantastic dad, a fireman, and a complete gentleman. It didn't take long for him to completely sweep me off my feet. I tried to be jealous of

Book 3 in the Lyrics and Love. Great friends to lovers romance that is low on drama and angst but plenty of romance between Tucker and Lindsay. Great chemistry and attraction between them.

I loved Tucker. He was so sweet, responsible, loyal, understanding, & caring. I loved his daughter Paisley. She was so unbelievably cute. It was beyond refreshing to see the relationship between Tucker & Lily. I love when parents even though they aren’t together can make things work for their kid. It made the book even more enjoyable for me.

Lindsey & Tucker were so sweet together. Small town romance at its finest. Seeing their relationship grow from friends to something more made for such an en

Rumors Goin Round is seriously such a sexy, sweet, sweep you off your feet love story!

Tucker and Lindsay are such lovely, relatable characters. Add in the sassy little spitfire Paisley and you have the foundation of a beautiful story!

Samantha always gives readers exactly what they are wanting with a romance story. I love that this is part of a new series, I can not wait to find out what she is working on next!

Lindsay and Tucker have known each other their entire lives. She had a secret crush on him all through school and as a single Dad she finds him just as hot. Tucker puts out fires for a living but can’t seem to extinguish the torch he carries for Lindsay. Will they give into the small town rumors going round and see what they can be together?

This is such a fun, sweet series. I have enjoyed the music inspiration and some sweet, easy love stories. Loved that Paisley plays a prominent part of the st

Rumor Going ‘Round is a sweet and sexy romp that will warm the reader’s heart. Tucker and Lindsay have been friends since childhood and Lindsay has had a crush on Tucker for years. When Tucker begins showing interest in her, their relationship takes an unexpected but welcome turn.

Both Tucker and Lindsay are great characters. They are full of life, love, and are both extremely genuine. They care about their friends and family and have huge hearts. Tucker is a single dad and he’s a swoonworthy fat

What an amazing story that will have you swooning for Tucker, and loving Lindsay, and let's not forget Tucker's adorable daughter Paisley! This story was so good I couldn't put it down! 5 stars for this one!

This is the third book I’ve read from this series and it has been my absolute favorite. I love everything about Tucker and Lindsay. I mean you can’t go wrong with a hot fire fighter who just so happens to be the most amazing dad to his daughter, and to top it all off he has all the makings of the sweetest alpha man you could ever want.

This really is a friends to lovers with a whole lot of heart, heat and fun. You will love the characters and the story. I really love the idea that each of these
I have to say, I've enjoyed everything I've read by this author, and this book is definitely not an exception to that! This book is a fast paced, slow burn romance (total oxymoron, right?!?) But still, a childhood friendship becomes more as adults. Definitely not what I was expecting, but everything I love about romance!

Tucker is happy with his life. He has a job as a firefighter that he absolutely loves. And he is a single dad, to the cutest little girl ever! But even his surprise fatherhood l

What a great story! I loved the connection/chemistry Tucker and Lindsay had going between them. Being friends for years, both attracted to the other but neither doing anything about it, made for a must read book. Tucker is a single dad, fireman, and sweet as can be. Linsday is an E.R. nurse, gorgeous, funny, smart and sweet. They are perfect for each other. I also loved little Paisley! She was so stinking cute.

Music is a big part of my life and I applaud Samantha Lind for taking beautiful songs and using them to create the wonderful books in her “ Love and Lyrics” series. All songwriters are poets, and from their words she has given us characters that are realistic, likeable and full of compassion.

Tucker is a true southern gentleman and he loves his daughter, his family, and being a firefighter. He is an amazing father and Ms. Lind has perfectly captured the father-daughter relationship with witty dia

I'm not quite sure why I don't read more friends to lovers books because I tend to enjoy them. I guess it's because they don't always hit right, but Samantha Lind totally knocked it out of the park. Tucker is a yummy firefighter & single father who's close friends with Lindsay, as they grew up together. She's carrying a secret torch for him, but trying to get her to admit to it is a lesson in patience. See, they're perfect for each other but both have been too scared to cross that line since the ...more
Rumor Going 'Round is book three in the Lyrics and Love series. Each book can be read as a standalone if you choose; however, if you love Country music and reading you will want to read them all.

I always enjoy Samantha’s books and this one was no exception! Rumor going round is a sweet story about two people that have known each other almost their whole lives and finally give in and see what can happen. Tucker is a single dad firefighter and Lindsey is a nurse. While their schedules don’t always match up, when they do come together, there is so much love and heat between the two of them. Also love little Paisley, Tucker’s daughter and all her sass!

I received this free eARC novel from the author and Wildfire Marketing Solutions. This is my honest review.

This was a cute novel. I loved seeing Tucker and Lindsay get to know each other and see the attraction between them grow stronger and stronger. Both of these characters are down to earth and very drama free, which I enjoyed.

I also loved that they are both in a profession that helps others. I'm sure with being an ER nurse and a firefighter, the inconsistency of their schedule could get a bi

A beautiful friends to lovers romance. I was hooked from the beginning with this book. Tucker is sweet, sexy & father. He isn’t a single father, he coparents with his daughter’s mom. This story was just perfect, not too sweet, but not angst or drama. Sometimes a girl is in the mood for crazy drama & others just the perfect blend of well written characters with chemistry is all you need.

This was a very cute, low angsty love story!

Tucker and Lindsay have known each other throughout their lives, but the timing was never right. I love how these two come together and how they blend their lives together. Tucker is such a sweet single dad and I love his relationship with his daughter. The chemistry and love is palpable between these two, and I can’t wait for more in this series!

"Why the tears?"
"I thought I knew what love was before, but it was nothing like what I feel with you."

If you love a sweet story, with no drama, no angst,, then this is the story for you.

Tucker and Lindsey are perfect together. They have a strong friendship which turns in to so much more. I loved the fact that Tucker was a single dad, and an amazing one at that! And Lindsey was so wonderful with Tucker's daughter, Paisley.

As I mentioned about, this is just a cute,sweet love story
