This Is Our Song by Samantha Chase

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Samantha Chase crafts a tender, hopeful, family-centered romance.

Entertainment reporter Savannah Daly is completely unfazed by pretty-boy rock stars. She’s just here to get her interview and write her story. When she’s assigned to write a tell-all about Riley Shaughnessy, she expects to be put off by a shallow rock star lifestyle.

Instead, Riley brings her home to the shores of the Carolinas where she’s immediately embraced by his sprawling, rambunctious family. She expected spotlights and cameras; she gets a welcoming, loving family and a side of Riley she never could have guessed.

The Shaughnessy Brothers Series:
Made for Us (Book 1)
Love Walks In (Book 2)
Always My Girl (Book 3)
This Is Our Song (Book 4)

You guys…seriously. This book is perfection. I have loved the Shaughnessy Brothers for a long time, but Riley is on a whole other level. I’m still swooning over him.

One of my favorite aspects of this story is right at the beginning. We are taken back in time with a younger Riley, and his first experience performing and then, years later, a far more painful performance in his life; his mother’s funeral. The reason I like this is because through this series, we really see how important their mother was, and still is, to them. Each brother’s book features a different poignant memory. Regardless of where the Shaughnessy family ends up, they always come back to family.

Riley is a great blend of his family, but also his rockstar persona. He’s living in LA, and trying to work on a solo album, but he’s got a mental block up and he can’t get past it. His record label is pressuring him to finish the album, and in exchange for a little more time, he agrees to a month long, multi-series interview.

Savannah was awesome. I really loved how she was such a spitfire, but yet she could also pull back and humble herself. As Riley gets to know her, you see much a softer side of Savannah coming out. I thought it was a nice juxtaposition because Riley has his public persona, and in an essence, so does Savannah. But when they were together, they found peace.

I’ve enjoyed Samantha Chase’s books for a long time now, and I have to mention that I have an intense amount of respect for her. With her latest books, I feel like I can see her pushing her characters into new conflicts or scenarios. I appreciate that she is pushing some of the boundaries but still maintains the classic experience that I love about her work.

I enjoyed this book immensely. Partway through, I was thinking I should marry Riley (and I’m already married!). I found myself smiling, cringing, and laughing right along as I read this story. I felt like I was with Savannah and Riley throughout, and I always love feeling like I am a part of the story.
