Blog Tour: A Song for Us


Title A Song for Us

Series White Trash Trilogy, book 3

Author Teresa Mummert

Release Date April 22, 2014

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...

Review

Unlike the first two books, this book focuses on Eric, Tucker's bandmate. At first, this seemed a little strange to me. Since the first two books focused on Cass and Tucker, why would the third book be different? Wouldn't it have made more sense to give Eric his own book/series instead of throwing him into Cass and Tucker's? However, when I stopped for a moment and thought about it, it makes sense. Cass and Tucker have their happy ending and we did get to know more about Eric and Sarah in the second book (and that was something I wanted explored!). So, while it might seem somewhat strange to jump from Cass and Tucker to Eric and Sarah, it actually works well.

This was a very strong finish for the White Trash trilogy. In fact, I would say that it's the strongest book of the trilogy and it is definitely my favorite out of the three. A Song for Us is told from the perspectives of Eric and Sarah. The dual perspectives work very well for this book and give us a clear picture of what's going on. The story was both heartbreaking and beautiful. I'm so glad with how things worked out.


Overall, this was a satisfying ending to the White Trash trilogy. Though the book focused on Eric and Sarah, we did see Cass and Tucker and get glimpses at their happily ever after. I'd recommend this trilogy.

Author Bio

Teresa MummertI 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.
