★★★ Review, Giveaway & Book Tour For Song of the Blackbird (Albatross Prison Series 1) By DB Michaels ★★★
Okay first thing sorry this review is late. Had something
out of my control happen, but here it is now.
This story really threw me. I do tend to get emotional with
some stories. This one needs a warning. I give it 2 tissue
boxes needed. There was so much sorrow, I felt so bad for
Emma. I constantly wanted to just hold her and make it
better. But you know some of the most wonderful loves,
come from some of the deepest sorrows. This book had me
laughing, angry, sad, and downright pissed off at a few
characters. Mrs. Michaels really grabbed me and held me
hostage till the bitter end of this book. She may be new but
dam what a book. I just wished there would have been a
happily ever after for all of her and Maxim’s family. I normally
write my review right after I finish the book. But for me that
was 5am as the sun was rising and I was a blubbering mess.
So I finally went to bed and slept on it. I have to say the
Blackbird sighting through the book was truly inspired.
I loved it, and it turned out to be like an omen. Even when
Sam comes to see his sister after it all falls apart. That had
to be the most touching part of the story. And then getting
the stubborn Maxim to open his heart and let her in.
they both needed each other. Only if they will open their
eyes and just see it. It may take one special occurrence
to set them both straight.
Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here.I hope you
enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book,
please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it
when you do; they value your opinions too.
Healing must start from within…
Desperate to reconnect with her half-brother, Emma Edwards
takes her new medical training and secures a doctor’s job at
the prison where he’s serving a sentence. But what she finds
there is worse than she ever imagined…tough rules and
even tougher men, gangs powered by drug money and
corruption. Emma must find a way to keep her brother alive
until he’s freed even if that means lying to the one man she
should be able to trust…
Unless you find someone to share your pain…
Warden Maxim Chambers doesn’t believe a woman should
be working in a penitentiary, especially one like Emma – a
woman even a hardened man like him can’t get off his mind.
He’s spent too many years building walls around his heart to
let himself care about anyone. But when Emma is almost
hurt in a prison assault, Maxim can’t deny his feelings for her.
But what is the connection between Emma and the prisoner
And accept your past.
When secrets are revealed, danger and death run through
the prison. Only the truth can save Emma and Maxim…if it’s
not too late.
Song of the Blackbird immerses you in a whole new world –
a gritty, violent world where things you have always believed
turn out not to be true. It is a compelling story of sorrow and
loss, of hope and second chances, and most of all, of the
power of love.
Dear God. He’d almost made love to her just now. Made love to an employee. Sure, she’d responded quite enthusiastically, but he was still her boss. Any relationship between them was impossible. He hoped she’d understand and not get too needy. He’d have to apologize for the kiss, though he didn’t regret it one bit if he had to be honest with himself. She’d been amazing. God. That body. Those lips. That mouth.
Best kiss of his life and it had to be with an employee. Maxim bit back a groan. She’d expect an apology. That’d also be a good step to resetting the strict boundaries between them. Maxim ushered her out of the house and into the car.
“I’m sorry about what happened back there,” he stated as soon as they began the climb down the hill.
“Sorry?” she asked, meeting his eyes finally.
“I got carried away with the moment.”
“Hmm. Carried away?”
“Yes. You were yelling and I didn’t know how to make you stop.”
“So you kissed me to…” She frowned. “To shut me up?”
“I guess.” He dug a hand through his hair and tugged at his shirt collar. This wasn’t coming out right. “Listen, I hope you understand that can never happen again.”
Emma looked away, silent. Finally she turned back, her face somber. “I know. I hate the yelling, too.” She gave her head a little shake. “But you bring out the worst in me sometimes. I don’t know why.”
“I’m not talking about the yelling.” So he brought out the worst in her, did he? Ditto, my dear. Ditto. “I’m talking about the kiss.”
“Oh, that.” She tossed her long hair back and focused on the road. “I got carried away, too. It didn’t really mean anything.”
“What?” The most intense, hottest kiss of his life and she thought it meant nothing?
