Kenzie Reid is a survivor. She’s been out on her own since she was seventeen years old. She may not have much to show for it, but she’s made her own way in the world. Other than her sister, Megan, no one has ever cared whether she lived or died—not even her own parents.

When Kenzie visits Summer Lake to make sure Megan is okay there, the quaint little town threatens to cast its spell over her, too. The place has its attractions, not the least of which is Chase, the lead singer with the local band. Kenzie knows attraction doesn’t last though and besides, she’s not cut out for small town life.

Chase Harper lives a life many guys would envy. He sings in a band, hangs with his guys, can have any woman he wants—and usually does. When he meets Kenzie, he soon realizes he’d gladly give it all up. He believes what they have could be a one-of-a-kind, but first he’ll have to convince her that it’s more than just a one-off.

Will two people who weren’t looking for a relationship learn to trust one another enough to make it work?

Favorite Quotes:


“Buying me a drink is the least you can do.  I’m looking forward to finding out about the best you can do.”

“Earlier I told you we were good together.  That was the lie, we aren’t good at all, we’re great.”

“Sometimes, when things go wrong, we all need some help.  It’s not weakness, Kenzie.  Sometimes it takes more strength to swallow our pride and accept help than it does to keep struggling on alone.”

“‘You always have a choice, lover.’  He lowered his mouth to hers and whispered, ‘Choose me.’”

“I’m so grateful for you.  Everything you’ve done for me is amazing, but the fact that you’re with me, that you want to be with me is the most amazing of all.  I’m happier than I’ve ever been, not because of what you’ve done for me, but because you’re with me.”

My Review:

I am so glad S.J. McCoy continues to share her delightful skills with us by continuing to crank out her ever enchanting Summer Lake romances.  I love her “Sweet ‘N Steamy” style and Sing Like Nobody’s Listening was considerably more sensual than previous volumes, as would be expected for these characters, and it was an excellent fit for their story.  Her uncanny insights and observances of personal insecurities, lingering fears, and personality traits are remarkable, yet she makes it so entertaining along the way.  I am addicted to this series as I just can’t seem to get enough of this lively collection of interesting and fun people, and find I now have an urge to start the entire series over to refresh my memory of the earlier couples.  Actually, any excuse will do to linger at the lake a bit longer.

Hi, I’m SJ. A coffee addict, lover of chocolate and drinker of good red wines. I’m a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can’t write without coffee.

I grew up loving romance novels, my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of non fiction for many years. My life changed completely a couple of years ago and I returned to Romance to find my escape.

I write ‘Sweet N Steamy’ stories because to me there is enough angst and darkness in real life. My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on fun, friendships and happily-ever-afters, just like the ones I write.

These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. If I’m not reading or writing you’ll find me just down the road in the park – Yellowstone. I have deer, eagles and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way :0)
