  About Listen to Your Heart: Wedding planner Skye Douglas makes a career out of bringing fairytales to life—even if she’s given up on her own happily ever after. Instead of dating, she devotes time to her nephew, a guitar prodigy who shares her love for 80s hair bands. When she encounters Caleb Lynch, the new guitar teacher, everything changes. Caleb's passion for music—not to mention his Def Leppard T-shirt—makes Skye wonder if she might get her storybook ending after all.   Caleb would do anything for those he loves—including a fake engagement as a gift to his best friend's dying mother. But after meeting Skye, he regrets the promise he made.   When Skye realizes she’s fallen for the groom, will she listen to her head . . . or her heart?   

Listen to Your Heart Playlist:  
Review - 4.5 Stars
Sweet, heartfelt, and beautifully written.

Listen To Your Heart is the first book that I have read from Sydney Logan and I am so glad that it was. I was enraptured in Sydney's beautiful writing style and her characters jumped right off the pages and into my heart.

Skye is a wedding planner who loves her ten year old nephew. Imagine her surprise when he sets her up with his sexy substitute music instructor. Sparks flew with undeniable chemistry from the first time that Skye and Caleb lay eyes on each other. This is would have been a classic love at first sight story if there was not a tremulously unexpected twist.

What happens when your kindness causes more damage than you ever imagined?

Caleb has a agreed to complete a stunningly selfless act for a person who has been kind to him for years. He loves being a substitute teacher, and he has a very supportive best friend. The one thing that Caleb lives more than anything is music, so it is no surprise that he would fall head over hills for a woman that shares his passion. He cant believe how lucky he is that Skye walked into his life, but will his secret cause her to walk out of it?

This novel stimulated all of my emotions. I was overcome with joy, I fought back tears, and at moments I was incredibly frustrated. It certainly kept me engaged from the first page through the last. If you are looking for a beautiful story with light angst then this is defiantly your book.

  Exclusive Excerpt: My mouth snaps closed when I finally spot my nephew. Sitting next to him is a man wearing a leather jacket with a Def Leppard T-shirt peeking through. He’s holdaing a guitar and showing Eli how to make a chord. My heart starts to pound as I watch the new music teacher interact with Eli and the rest of the kids. He’s soft-spoken and patient, and when the kids strum their guitars in perfect unison, his face morphs into the most toe-curling smile I’ve ever seen on a man. Suddenly, he lifts his head and his eyes find mine. “Wow,” I whisper. He doesn’t look like a teacher. He looks like a rock star, with his grungy clothes and his jet-black hair that’s just long enough to curl around the nape of his neck. When class is dismissed, the mothers rush toward the new music teacher, shaking his hand and offering their business cards, just in case he ever needs to reach them. Equally disgusted and impressed with their blatant flirting—and far too shy to participate myself—I find Eli and all but shove him toward the door. He tugs on my hand. “Aunt Skye, wait . . . I want you to meet Caleb.” “Could I meet him later? He seems really busy, Eli.” My nephew shakes his head and pulls me toward the mommy mob. I’m being ridiculous, I know. An hour ago, I was a happy, career-driven woman who didn’t need a man to make her life complete. Now I’m nervous and sweaty and acting like a girl with a high school crush. Guess it doesn’t matter how old you are. Pretty boys make you stupid. I sneakily rub my clammy palms on my slacks just as the seas part, and suddenly, I find myself staring into the deep blue eyes of the new music teacher. Pretty boys are even prettier up close. And we’re just staring at each other. My totally oblivious nephew grows impatient with all the staring and starts making the introductions. “This is my Aunt Skye.” He offers me his hand. “Hey, Aunt Skye. I’m Caleb.” “It’s nice to meet you.” “Pleasure’s all mine.” “Eli’s really excited that you’ll be taking Ms. Carol’s place for a while. I mean, he loves her, obviously, but we all understand that she needs this time away, and it’s good to know that he’s in good hands and we just really appreciate . . . everything.” I’m babbling, but he’s nice enough to stand there and smile at me while I do. And he’s still holding my hand. “Do you like music?” Caleb asks. “She’s obsessed with it,” Eli replies, and I’m suddenly reminded that there’s a ten year old standing between us. Caleb must realize it at the same time, because he loudly clears his throat and let’s go of my hand. “Well, Eli is an excellent guitarist. I’m looking forward to working with him.” “Thanks. We’re really proud of him.” “You should be.” Eli beams as Caleb pats him on the shoulder. We stand awkwardly staring at each other for a few more minutes until Eli’s growling stomach breaks the spell. We all laugh. “I should feed him. It was nice meeting you, Caleb.” “Burger Palace?” Eli pleads. Caleb chuckles. “They do have the best burgers.” “You should come with us!” Caleb’s eyes dart to mine. “Umm . . .” Not that I have a problem spending more time with Caleb. I’m just not sure a trip to Burger Palace is his idea of a good time. “I’d love to, if it’s okay with your Aunt Skye.” Eli looks up at me with wide, hopeful eyes. “Is it okay with my Aunt Skye?” I laugh. “Sure, it’s okay.” Caleb’s answering smile makes my body tremble in a way that it hasn’t trembled in . . . ever. I’m in trouble.
