I link my fingers behind Sam’s neck. “He cares about you, Sam.”
“I’m tryin’ to move forward, get somewhere, be somebody. I just feel like he’s holding me back.”
I look down at our feet and back up to meet his frown. “You seem to be moving ahead just fine to me.”
“I’m no ballroom dancer.”
I press my lips against his. I delight in a long-lasting kiss until Sam moans in the back of his throat. Reluctantly, I pull back. “Then lucky for the both of us, because I don’t want a dancer. I want you.”
The song finishes, but we continue to sway, locked tight in each other’s arms. The young girl nods to Shaun and walks offstage as a lady with wild ginger hair in a ruffled denim dress and cowgirl boots takes her place. The woman, who looks to be in her forties, adjusts the microphone to her height, and then plucks the strings of a mandolin. Her voice crackles as she sings about writing a song, and her tears.
Sam’s arms stiffen around me. “Of all the frickin’ songs, she picks this one by Willie Nelson?”
The lady continues on about sad songs and waltzes. It’s kind of depressing. Ironic, really. I shift my arms around Sam’s waist.
“I hate country music,” he growls in my ear.
“The song’s not that bad,” I lie.
Sam’s mouth moves to my ear. The heat of his breath sends a flood of warmth to my lower belly. “I just wanted this one moment. She’s killin’ me.”
I tighten my hold around him. “Forget about her.”
Sam grinds his teeth. “How can I? It’s all I can hear.”
“Then listen to me instead.” I press one hand to the centre of his chest. “We made it, Sam. We made it here to this very spot.”
A lazy smile curls at his mouth. “Now’s not the time to make me weak at the knees, Janie.”
“Grab the tissues, 4 stars”
Jane is at a new point in her life. She has a new job and she’s finally trying to write a novel. Writing is in her blood she just has to figure out how to work her muse. Then she meets Sam, and everything starts to change. Life is better with Sam but it’s not all sunshine and roses. Will Jane get a happily ever after with Sam?
Sam never thought he would find himself in a nursing home when he was young. He didn’t see a lot of things that he is experiencing currently. He’s simply going through the motions until Jane. Jane gives Sam purpose and reason. They fall hard and fast. Will Sam get to be with the girl of his dreams or will their love story be cut short?
If your looking for a light, fluffy happily ever after turn around right now. Do not one-click. If you want a heart wrenching story that is bound for disaster, then click now. Jane is amazing. She has all the traits we want our children to have, she’s kind, she’s compassionate, etc. Sam is swoon worthy in his own way and falls hopelessly in love with our dear Jane. Then you add in Sam’s brother Ben and sigh.
I never say this, but I really hope there is a follow up to Sing it, Sam. I need more than the ending I got. Ryder is a new to me author and I was impressed. The only reason really for the 4 stars is a bunch of the Aussie speak was lost on me. I got what she meant but it just didn’t sound right in my head if that makes sense. Other than that I can’t wait to see if she follows up with Jane.
