Review: Songs By Heart

Songs By Heart (sweet gay romance novel)Songs By Heart by Hollis Shiloh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love Inspired By Song

Songs By Heart is Hollis Shiloh's first full length novel. It has everything I've come to expect from her books and more! The characters are so real that they walked right off the page and into my heart. Harry and Mike are irresistibly drawn to each other. Although they are different people, with unique personalities and separate insecurities, their caring hearts and shared love of music are the ties that bind them together. Their road to love isn't easy; past relationships, complicated family dynamics, and separate career paths threaten to drive them apart. Despite the challenges, they are committed to their love; and just as they've found the confidence to begin building their future, Harry receives a once-in-a-lifetime offer when he's accepted onto a reality TV show. Suddenly, all bets are off, and the future they envisioned together starts to take a path that neither man ever dreamed existed.

Filled with unexpected twists, emotional highs and lows, the tasteful and tenderly written love scenes that Shiloh is best known for, and some truly inspired movie quotes, Songs By Heart will carry you away. The full length of this novel compounds upon the beautiful character development found in Shiloh's previous short stories. I read it once to capture the essence of the story and then read it again just to savor the experience. It compelled me to laugh out loud, inspired a few tears, and made me want to make Mike and Harry part of my family.

It's possible that you won't love this book as much as I did, but if you are a fan of M/M romance... or romance in general... this is one story that you simply MUST read.
