The second book in the Siren’s Song series
Kai Larsen, bar manager at the Siren’s Song Club is branching out. After years of closeting herself in the exclusive lesbian club, she’s trying to look to her future. She’s applied and been accepted for a part time job at Dani McClure’s Whidbey Island Retreat.
Kai hadn’t had an easy young life. She’s been hiding a deep, dark secret from way back in her past. Until Kai can let go of the past, she can’t move forward.
Dani McClure has not long split up from a long term relationship. Things hadn’t been going too well for a while for her and Kris, but when Kris cheated on her, it was the final straw. Dani can’t and won’t allow herself to be hurt again, not by anyone.
When Kai and Dani meet, an immediate and deep friendship begins. As far as both women are concerned, it can never be anything more. Kai doesn’t do relationships and Dani can’t give her heart again. Friends is all they can be.
But.......Will friendship be enough? Kai and Dani both have past fears and must put them behind them in order to move forward. Will the Siren’s Song help them find themselves and the love they both so badly need and deserve?
When I read Penelope Grey’s debut book Infinity’s Song, I knew I’d found a true gem. An author I feel will be a big name in lesfic. But, I did wonder how she was going to manage to top her excellent first book. I needn’t have worried, she’s actually gone over and above topping it. This book is an extremely well written, one sitting page turner, in which the emotions radiate off the page hitting the reader right in the heart. I defy anyone to read this book and not be affected by it in one way or another.
This book has some of the same wonderful characters from Infinity’s Song. The club, The Siren’s Song, is as much a character as the people depicted in this story. You would have to read these books to know and get exactly what I mean as I don’t want to add in any spoilers.
The main characters, Kai and Dani are so true and real, I felt I actually knew them personally. They interact so well together and it is painfully obvious they are meant to be together, but the question is, will they be able to let go of their pasts and give love another chance?
If you are up for a really good story with a tender and simmering romance hovering in the background, this is a book not to be missed. Although the second in a series, it can be read as a standalone. But, I would strongly advise you to read Infinity’s Song first. You’ll be missing out on a wonderful story and some of the background on the characters.
Now, I am anxiously and eagerly awaiting Penelope Grey’s next offering.
