Songbird by Sydney Logan **Review**




One bridesmaid. One groomsman. One classic wedding hookup.
But for Callie and Devin, their weekend of passion is anything but typical.

Callie Franklin doesn’t do one night stands. Ever. She’s far too responsible and focused on her career to ever let herself give in to temptation. But, on the eve of her best friend’s wedding, she meets that temptation . . . 

And his name is Devin McAllister.

Devin, on the other hand, has no problem with meaningless hookups. The very last thing he needs—or wants—is a relationship.

Relationships come with strings. Relationships come with heartbreak.

A late-night encounter in the hotel’s piano bar finds the two unable to resist each other. With her angelic voice and bright blue eyes, Devin’s sure he’s never met anyone as beautiful as his Songbird.

Six weeks later, when two pink lines confirm Callie’s worst fears, she and Devin have to face the consequences of their wild weekend.

And they have to deal with each other—whether they like it or not.

With a love story that’s far from traditional, Callie and Devin begin to wonder if their one-night stand could turn into something neither of them anticipated.

A happily ever after.





4 "Operation Seduce Baby Daddy" stars


Callie Franklin is a maid of honor in her best friend's wedding. The night before the big event, she meets a handsome stranger and even though she's against one night stands, and after a couple of drinks, she ends up in the bed with him. The following day Callie finds out that the handsome stranger is the groomsman, Devin McAllister.

Devin is a much wanted bachelor and doesn't do commited relationships. He is charmed by Callie, but he leaves her on the bed after their night together, nonetheless. Several weeks later, he meets Callie again and he wants a repeat, but she has some news for him that will change his world.



What do I know about raising a kid? I don't even like kids. They're loud and messy and annoying. I'm selfish and arrogant, and there's no doubt I'll completely screw it up. What do I know about being a father?


Callie was really shocked when she found out that she's expecting a child. With a rise in her career, this would be the last thing she would want at the moment. Add the clear knowledge of who is the father and the fact that her own mom wasn't the epitome of a mother and Callie has to face the harsh reality of being a single mother.

How is he going to react when he finds out that he's expecting a baby with a girl he had just one night stand? How is Callie going to deal with this? And what's going to happen when the candidate mayor not only hits on her, but also stalks her?


Sure, this baby was unexpected and unplanned, and yes, I'd completely freaked out at first, but I never considered not keeping it. This is my baby, even if I end up raising it alone.



I really enjoyed this one. The writing had captured my interest and anything that involves pregnancy and babies has me intrigued. It was really interesting to watch their transition from strangers, to going through the pregnancy stages with those characters. And not only the hero or the heroine, but also those who surrounded them. His parents & her father were awesome, as well as her besties and his brother.

I have to admit that I wasn't impressed with a few facts, like the fact that I expected that he would be harder to accept the whole fatherhood. I liked watching him grovelling, but I can't help but think that his initial reaction was to be expected. Also, the whole drama with the mayor, I expected more drama there and didn't got the action I was expecting. The similarities with Twilight were quite evident, so if you don't mind reading twilight fanfiction and you are intrigued with this plot, this will definitely work for you.


He doesn't make me nervous. It's my reactions to him that make me nervous. My body. My mind. My heart. They're all at risk whenever he's around.


Overall, the characters were quite pleasant, this book was sweet, sexy and funny. I loved the progress between the couple, their dialogues, their bonding, the side characters and I would definitely recommend this to my friends.
