A Song For Us (White Trash Trilogy #3) by Teresa Mummert Blog Tour - #review

In this highly anticipated follow-up to White Trash Damaged, Cass and Tucker have finally found their happily ever after, but can Eric, the band’s brooding drummer, ever let go of his past and find love?

From a small-town boy with fantasies of superstardom to rock star on tour with the suddenly famous band Damaged, Eric’s life has not been an easy journey. Now he struggles to let go of his past of physical abuse, a past that still haunts him. His anger is causing him to spiral out of control and he risks losing everything he has worked so hard for.

Only one person has ever gotten him to open up about his past: Sarah, the lead singer of Filth, the opening act on their first national tour—a fellow rocker with a confident fa├žade that masks her own painful secrets. But their bands’ rocky past and Sarah’s tumultuous relationship with her bandmate and boyfriend Derek force her to keep Eric at a distance. As their friendship begins to grow into something more, Eric has to find a way to let go of his tortured past, or it could jeopardize his only chance for a happy future...

About Teresa Mummert:

I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I'd like to tell you a story.

 My Review...

I do really like this series and I did like this book and this has nothing to do with the author as I love both but ... even though contemporary romance is my main genre sometimes I get so tired of the:

  • 'I like you' but I'm with someone else
  • 'No I like you ' but because of oodles of miscommunications and assumptions they think they are with someone else when they are not 
  • 'i like you' oh you didn't jump right in my arms and declare your feelings then obviously I should jump into someone else's bed 
  • 'i like someone else but I'll just stay in my miserable relationship (which makes it tough to truly believe the depth of feelings)
  • or the 'You deserve better' ' no you deserved better' 'I'm not good enough'
Grrr, you're getting my drift.
This contemporary storyline sometimes gets used way to much.  Again this story just happened to be this theme and pushed me over the edge but if I was to get my head out of my ass and step back an ignore my annoyance then I can say I did like it as I do everything else from Teresa Mummert. 

It's amazing what personal demons can do to your head and fuck you up. Even though the angst got to me, Teresa portrayed the effects of the past and the healing that needs to be done within and that love can't save everything. You have to love yourself before you can truly love another.

Eric loves Sarah but he just wants her to be happy even if that means not with him.
"Because I want her to want me, not settle for me."

But Sarah isn't happy and she's confused.

"Where are you? "Oh, I don't know, E.  I'm at the corner of Pissed Off and Go Fuck Yourself."
Eric finally tells the truth no matter the consequences.

To find their happiness it becomes quite an emotional journey to find their way to each other.
"We are a fucked-up bunch."
It took me awhile to get into this book but I'm glad I stuck it out because I loved the end and I adored the series.  It ended with Eric and Sarah but also revolved around Cass and Tucker's HEA as well. 

3.5 relationship angst filled thumbs up
thumbs upthumbs upthumbs up . 5
