      “Songbird” is the newly edited edition of best selling author Syrie James’ first published novel. Written in 1985, the love story seems almost a time capsule of those times: music, technology, pop culture. As in the author’s foreword, “No matter how much the world changes around us, however, the fundamental things in our lives do not change. We work hard. We have dreams. We fall in love. We experience the joys of a new relationship, and risk our hearts on the road to happiness.” Afte [...]

      Great love story!Really enjoyed this book - fast-paced and not too predictable. Fell in love with Kyle & Desiree. Stayed up way past my bedtime to read - couldn't put it down.

      Songbird is the newly revised edition of author Syrie James’ first published novel, originally written back in 1985. The story begins with a California based DJ, Desiree Germain, and a heedless on air comment predicting a companies decline in stock To her surprise, a call comes in from a smoothing talking, irritated man that just so happens to be the owner of the company she just slammed! Shortly after dealing with this self inflicted uncomfortable situation, the person Desiree least expects t [...]

      A random thought: the other day, as I caught myself watching the Twilight Zone marathon for the billionth time, I looked up and thought to myself, 'I am a sci-fi girl'. It's not something I ever picked up on before or ever thought about, it justwas.Syrie James makes me feel the same way -- but about romances. I looked up in the middle of this book and thought to myself, 'I am a complete sucker for romance', and her book, Songbird, completely verified that for me. Songbird tells the story of Desi [...]

      Songbird was originally written in 1985 but was recently re-edited. This is the first novel that author Syrie James published and I have to admit I was really impressed with it! Even though this was contemporary in 1985 the one thing it does not have is a ‘dated’ feel to it.Desiree Germain is a deejay on a local Southern California radio station. She has finally moved up to a day time spot and is doing her best to hold onto her position. During trivia time one afternoon the handsome voice of [...]

      **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest reviewDesiree is a DJ who works for KICK radio. She's been there 7 years working evenings and nights, but she's finally made it to prime time days. Desiree did a trivia question and Kyle Harrison won the prize. He showed up at the studio right near Desiree. He owned Harrison Industries. He invited Desiree to share his prize, which was a meal for two. Kyle lived in Seattle. Kyle was very determined to have time with Desiree and she was j [...]

      I love Syrie James' historical fiction but am disturbed about Kyle's obvious anger issues. Several times in the story, he gets angry with Desiree and treats her badly for things that are not her fault. I believe Kyle needs anger management training. Also, he uses his money to win her back each time his anger gets out of control. That is not the sign of a healthy relationship. We women grow up thinking a rich prince will save us from our poor world and poor decisions (Pretty Woman) but it's not h [...]

      This book was quite pleasant. It was good to read about relationships before laptops/tablets and cell phones. It was quite a surprising novelty. I really liked the plot and the light the author shined on how hard it was to have a long distance relationship back in the time setting of the book.Now, what made me give this book three stars was Kyle's treatment/attitude toward Desiree. No man should speak/treat a woman like that and then try to smooth it over with money. I thought Desiree was a litt [...]

      It's an OK book. First two chapters are actually quite enjoyable, after that it's pretty generic.

      I really enjoy Syrie James but this, her first attempt at writing, is just your basic romance novel, not quite up to her current abilities.
