A SONG FOR US was one of those books that made me sad for a good portion of it. While Cass and Tucker are celebrating their HEA, Eric, Drummer for Damaged, is struggling with his feeling for Sarah, a fellow musician in the band, Filth. And it's not an easy road for Eric.
This was an emotional, angsty ride, as we followed Eric as he dealt with his feelings and trying to be the friend Sarah needed, and Sarah dealing with the feelings she had for Eric and for her longtime boyfriend, Derek. Neither of them are stable emotionally and it begins to take a toll on both of them.
I really liked Eric and I could applaud his attempt at keeping Sarah in the "friend zone" despite being in love with her. But I struggled with understanding why Sarah would stay with someone like Derek, who didn't treat her well at all, instead of just laying it all out to Eric. Following her on her somewhat destructive path, was hard and sometime made it hard to like her.
A SONG FOR US was a solid ending to the White Trash series. In the end, Eric and Sarah figured out what they needed to be happy, but I wish it was on less of a destructive path and Sarah could have opened her eyes sooner.
Still, for anyone who has followed this series, it is a must read book. Eric captured the reader’s attention in Cass and Tucker's stories and I will want to see him get his HEA.
Cass Daniels and rocker Tucker White are finally replacing guitar feedback with wedding bells as Teresa Mummert concludes her gritty New York Times and USA Today bestselling trilogy. But now it’s Eric’s turn for love. Will the band’s brooding drummer ever let go of his troubled past—and the one girl he can’t forget?
Thanks to the MTV Video Music Awards, Damaged is suddenly famous. But as their star rises, drummer Eric begins to spiral out of control. Haunted by the tragic events of his childhood, he gets into fights after gigs and flies off the handle when the paparazzi approach. Drinking numbs the pain—but his behavior could cost him his rock star dreams.
Only one person has ever gotten Eric to open up about his life. Sarah, the lead singer of Filth, has a confident façade that masks her own painful secrets. But Sarah’s tumultuous relationship with her bandmate and boyfriend Derek forces her to keep Eric at a distance. As their friendship grows into something more, Eric has to find a way to forget his tortured past before it jeopardizes his only chance for a happy future.
