Liked It: A Song For Us by Teresa Mummert

Series: White Trash Trilogy 3
Format: eGalley
Release Date: April 22, 2014
Publisher: Gallery Books
Source: Publisher via NetGalley
Genre: Contemporary New Adult
In this highly anticipated follow-up to White Trash Damaged, Cass and Tucker have finally found their happily ever after, but can Eric, the band’s brooding drummer, ever let go of his past and find love?

From a small-town boy with fantasies of superstardom to rock star on tour with the suddenly famous band Damaged, Eric’s life has not been an easy journey. Now he struggles to let go of his past of physical abuse, a past that still haunts him. His anger is causing him to spiral out of control and he risks losing everything he has worked so hard for.

Only one person has ever gotten him to open up about his past: Sarah, the lead singer of Filth, the opening act on their first national tour—a fellow rocker with a confident façade that masks her own painful secrets. But their bands’ rocky past and Sarah’s tumultuous relationship with her bandmate and boyfriend Derek force her to keep Eric at a distance. As their friendship begins to grow into something more, Eric has to find a way to let go of his tortured past, or it could jeopardize his only chance for a happy future.




This is going to be a mini-review because I've been feeling burned out lately. I'm still reading like a maniac but setting up posts and writing up reviews isn't very appealing for me lately so forgive me if I'm to stick to straightforward, short reviews for the meantime. Posting 5 or more reviews a week finally caught up with me. 

A SONG FOR US concludes Teresa Mummert's hit contemporary new adult series, White Trash Trilogy. For all you Cass and Tucker fans out there, you'll finally get these two walk down the aisle and the scene TMummert painted for us was understated but very meaningful.. The wedding scene is also my favorite part in the book because it's the least dramatic and the most honest moment. 

On to Eric and Sarah. Y'all know I'm not the biggest fan of angsty, passive aggressive novels because I don't understand why two people who are clearly in love need to go through a stressful and torturous push and pull. Eric and Sarah are a lot like that which frustrated me immensely! There were a LOT of moments where I was shouting at my ereader because it's clear as day that they are in love and all the arrows are pointing opposite the direction they're going. KIDS, man! LOL

Of course each have their own sob stories, which to be totally emphatic are quite heartbreaking, which explains why they're so emotionally unavailable. The resolution felt too abrupt because they spent more time trying to be apart than being together so my only reaction to the ending is finally. If there's a character in A SONG FOR US that I was rooting for, it would be Donna, Damaged former manager and Eric's "buddy". She became collateral damage in Eric and Sarah's tumultuous relationship and for her sake, I wish TMummert would write one more book or even a novella just for her. 

I would highly recommend A SONG FOR US not just to fans of White Trash Trilogy, but to all readers who love angst-filled romance stories. TMummert will give you a healthy dose of that. Also, I think you can get away with reading A SONG FOR US as a stand-alone, Cass and Tucker's storyline doesn't overlap in this book although I still recommend you read their books because their HEA is very good.

  1. I never gave this series much thought because Dia HATED the first book. I'm also not a big fan of angst filled romance, we mostly have the same reasons for it...why make life so difficult? I like a good amount of angst but not too much. I wonder how you do it Braine! 5 reviews a week? Man. You're a rock star. Or review star? Haha.

    1. Girl, you have no idea what goes on in the background! Stops and posts missed. All the time! That's why I stopped doing tours!

  2. I have the first book in this series but haven't gotten to it yet. (damn my itchy one-click finger) I'm glad you liked this one despite its angst level, Braine.

    Btw, I totally understand getting review burn out. I've been feeling it a bit lately myself. But your reviews are always insightful, hon. Just fyi. ;)

    Also, The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller's angst level...it has some angst maybe. But I think it's more just realistic and just...life. I'm not gonna lie - I did cry a few times. But it wasn't angst really. Ok, now I've totally muddies the waters, right?!? *ha*

    1. I don't mind life but if it comes to a point where it gets too much, you need to reevaluate your shit right? Thanks for the vouch of support, Brandee!

  3. lol! There is a fine line between conflict and torture in romance. Sometimes we authors go a little overboard.

    And oh, the weather has been so nice (at least up here) that now would be a great time to be a little burned out and blog less ;)

    1. Yeah some of you do that, it hurts my heart what you make you make your characters go thru! Mercy!

      I'm trying to but this is such a hard habit to break!

    1. I think you will enjoy this better than I did, your tolerance for angst ridden stories is higher than mine

  5. I am not so sure Braine...I will have to think about this one. While it wasn't without issues I am glad you liked it.

  6. Usually I'm not into angst filled stories, but I do need them sometimes. I've been curious about the first book anyway, so I'd probably give the series a try.

    1. I can read it but it would depend on the theme. There are just topics like family drama that's impossible to write angst-less. Sometimes I just feel like everyone is a victim of abuse of some sort. What happened to the normal people? We got issues too!

  7. You write so many reviews I totally understand the burn out. I did that too for awhile then cut it down to like 3-4 reviews a week. I have to mix it up with easy posts or I go insane. You should find a fun post you can do each week to kind of get a day off.

    Happy you enjoyed this one. I haven't read book one.

  8. Lately I'm tired of angst-filled romances, so I don't think this book/series is for me, at least not right now.
    Thank you for the honest review.
    Have a wonderful weekend. ;)

    1. Thanks, Linda, I'm trying to do that now. It's not the reading but the setting up of the post and prettying it up that gets to me. Blah

  10. I yes angsty books... It's difficult for me as well. I think Eric and Sarah would have annoyed me as well. Maybe not for me either. Thanks for your review.

  11. Sadly, I do not love angst-filled romances. Some angst, yes. FULL of angst . . . no. Ima pass on these. I'm glad you liked it though (despite the passive-aggressive shenanigans).

  12. Sorry to hear about your review slump. I'm right there with you.

    I get bored with angst and drama. I feel like I've read it 100 x's before and I'm like you - get on with it already! lol Especially in a series where it seems endless.
