Includes excerpt/playlist + giveaway + book & author details
Madonna – Dear Jessie
“A lullaby for sex? That’s kinky, Hales.”
TYP – P.O.P
“One sentence keeps recycling in my head over and over, long after the song is done playing. “My blessing is also my enemy.” I stare at Daniel’s handsome profile and ask myself whether my own blessing is indeed also my enemy.”
Leonard Cohen – A Thousand Kisses Deep
“Leonard’s throaty voice hovers around the room. Mr. Cohen always puts me in the mood. Not that I really need to be put in the mood when D is concerned.”
Meredith Brooks -Bitch
“Driving to “Bitch” on full blast, I sing joyfully at the top of my lungs while steering the car over the calm evening roads.”
Little Talks – Monsters and Men
On my way back, an incoming call dissolves “Little Talks” by Monsters and the Men to a soft hum in the background.
“I heard you pulled a Hayley shenanigan earlier…” Ian blurts out. His words disintegrate into uncontrollable laughter.
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Breaking the Girl
“Okay now, we all had our share of laughter, ha ha kids, now let me get back to my music.” I dismiss them both, still highly amused.”
PLACEBO – Special Needs
“Hey, this song is totally about me,” says Ian.
“Special needs, you know…” He grins. “
Kelly Clarkson – Because Of You
“As I fumble with the iPod a thought about the suitcases in the trunk crosses my mind and a twist forms in my stomach. Buds of doubt start tainting my thoughts. I hope this doesn’t turn out to be a major mistake…”
Snow Patrol – Dark Roman Wine
“Snow Patrol singing one of their most intense, soul melting songs gives the scene its final touch.”
The Young Professionals – With Me
“For a better part of an hour we nibble at Ian’s blessed gastronomic work of art, sipping our drinks over T.Y.P. crooning in the background.”
Imagine Dragons – Radioactive
“Frenzied rock music plays in the background while Daniel beats the leaving hell out of a punching bag. I only manage to register one word from the blaring music: “radioactive”.”
Bon Jovi – Hallelujah
“Driving down quiet streets to the hotel, I feel like I’m driving into chaos, yet again. Inner chaos. There is a song crying over the speakers about how love is not a victory march, but a cold and broken hallelujah.”
Kelis – I Hate You So Much Right Now
“I hurry to kill the damn tune: Kelis’ “I hate you so much right now.” When it’s off I tuck the phone into my back pocket. “
Lisa Loeb – Stay (I Missed You)
“In every ongoing struggle throughout life, there comes a time to weigh your gain against your loss, and make your final decision. Leave or stay? I close my eyes and focus on the lyrics playing in my ears as I retrace my steps back to the house.”
In a manner of speaking – Nouvelle Vague
“Bringing the iPod to life with Nouvelle Vague’s serene voice I drive the car toward the electronic gates, en route to the YOU offices.”
Ricky Martin – I Don’t Care
“Ian’s favorite song, which brings us to a new level of silly ecstasy, as it always does.”
Christina Perri – A Thousand Years
“A Thousand Years” singing low in the background brings this moment to simple perfection.”
