Songbird: Review

From Goodreads:
It took many years but finally Melodee Lee is in control of her life. The twenty-three year old trusts no one, and spends her time nomadically wandering with the underground cage fighting scene. Her innocent looks are an asset and she utilizes them to their fullest extent. Fighting is how she makes her money and she’s damn good at it. Yeah, sometimes she’s lonely, but her set-up guarantees no one screws with her and she doesn’t have to think about the ten ways she knows how to kill a man. Of course, that was before she met the Sinclairs.

Nathan Sinclair; one of the four brothers that dominate the city of Syracuse. Nathan’s a rising basketball star, set to be signed by the NBA and despite the fact his slam-dunk nickname was earned both on and off the court, he’s decided that it’s time for a break. He’s over the drama of college women.

An accident, a baby and unforgettable circumstances bring these two people together when their worlds should never have collided. And the end result have both of them questioning their lives and the choices they've made to be happy.

My Review:
This was a really entertaining book, if my e-book copy only 160 so pages. It sure packed a lot in those pages, though, so I'm happy! Like, introducing Melodee and Nathan, and their worlds, and the baby who they name Jewel. Just great!

This book was pretty awesome! Entertaining, and I really enjoyed their interactions, because they're new adults, no matter what life's thrown at them, the two of them having this attraction to each other, and then add to that, an orphan baby that they adopt? Complicated doesn't cover it.

Yeah, Melodee's had it pretty rough. She was born because her parents were assassins, and they needed a kid to complete the family picture. Then they were killed by another biassing who wanted the job they were currently on. Which led to Melodee being taken in by the foster system. So she's not actually the most trusting of people.

And then there's the twist, and a pretty important part, because family is important, even if it's estranged family, be it Nathan's parents with his brothers and himself, or Melodee with her only surviving family, besides the new one that she makes with Nathan and Jewel.

Yeah, this was a really great book, and I can't wait to read about his brothers!
