Wedding planner Skye Douglas makes a career out of bringing fairytales to life—even if she’s given up on her own happily ever after. Instead of dating, she devotes time to her nephew, a guitar prodigy who shares her love for 80s hair bands. When she encounters Caleb Lynch, the new guitar teacher, everything changes. Caleb’s passion for music—not to mention his Def Leppard T-shirt—makes Skye wonder if she might get her storybook ending after all.
Caleb would do anything for those he loves—including a fake engagement as a gift to his best friend’s dying mother. But after meeting Skye, he regrets the promise he made.
When Skye realizes she’s fallen for the groom, will she listen to her head . . . or her heart?
I absolutely fell in love with this book cover and new as soon as I saw it that this would be one book that would stay with me well after I finished it. I was not wrong because even after finishing the book a day ago, I’m still thinking about the characters and immediate attraction that both characters felt for each other. Sydney Logan has written this emotionally heartfelt read that really tug at my heartstrings. I have been excitedly waiting for the release of this book and was not disappointed in it. As soon as I read that this story has 80’s rock music, a wedding planner and an unconventional whirlwind romance I knew this would be a book that I would love and I really did. I loved the writing style of Sydney Logan and the way she was able to express through her words every emotion that the characters were feeling.
When I finished reading Listen To Your Heart there was thing that I thought and that was we all need a Caleb in our life. Everyone needs someone who understands us completely and makes the most romantic gestures that bring an immediate smile to your face. Caleb I absolutely loved with the way the way that eh was willing to do anything to make his best friends mum happy with the little time she has left. It was apparent how much he loved and cared for his best friend and her family. He was a charming character that was loyal to the ones that he loved and he made me swoon so many times with the actions that he took to win Skye back. I adored the way he was with Skye’s young nephew Eli and the way he helped him with some of the big changes that were happening in Eli’s life. Caleb Lynch was perfectly written to be your next book boyfriend.
Skye Douglas was such a caring person and it was evident from the first chapter with the way that she took care of her Nephew Eli for her brother. The way that she made sure that he was all right and the way that she helped him to become interested in an instrument. I especially adore the way that she shared her love of 80s music with him and it has created a special bond between them. Once again Skye showed her caring ways by the way that she was willing to give up her happiness for someone else showed how much of a beautifully sweet person that she was. It is evident that she is good with people with the way that she handles people for her business and the way that she can calm down the nerves of the brides on their wedding days.
Listen to Your Heart is about Skye Douglas who isn’t looking for love finds the man of her dreams only to find out she is the wedding planner for his wedding. What she doesn’t know is he is getting married to his best friend because of a promise he made to her dying mother. Can the two of these characters overcome the obstacles in their way to have their own happily ever after.
Overall, Sydney Logan has written a story that really grabbed me from the start. The way that the characters met and their first date is something that really grabbed me. Despite the story having heart-breaking moments it was also a really sweet romantic story. There were moments were I teared up and there were moments were I was laughing out loud and that created the perfect emotions for the story. I absolutely adored the characters and the way that they connected with each other from the start. I absolutely loved the ending of the book an found that it was perfect for the story.
“Dance with me?”
I hate to dance . . . almost as much as I hate to date. But this is, without a doubt, the most romantic thing that’s ever happened to me.
Caleb’s eyes never leave mine as he leads me to the dance floor. Pulling me close, he drifts his hands up my arms and along my shoulders until I’m flush against him. I encircle his waist with my arms as we sway to the music.
Then the most amazing thing happens.
Caleb leans his forehead against mine and starts to sing.
And I melt. Absolutely, positively melt right there in his arms.
Correction. This is the most romantic thing that’s ever happened to me.
Caleb’s deep blue eyes burn with emotion as he sings softly to me. I don’t care that we probably look ridiculous and cheesy. I don’t care that the waitress will most likely slash my tires. I don’t care that he’s singing slightly off key. I don’t even care that my best friend is going to scream bloody murder when I tell her about this moment.
I don’t care about any of it, because I’m here.
Suddenly too overwhelmed with everything, I close my eyes.
“Please look at me,” he whispers, and because I’m completely under his spell, I obey.
“Caleb, I . . .” my voice drifts off.
Everything’s just too intense. It’s too much. And I don’t know what to say.
“You feel it, too?”
The insecure girl in me wants to ask what he means, but the woman in me knows. Of course I feel it, and I have no idea how to answer him. I decide to go with the truth.
