Three years later, his band Wilder is still struggling for the recognition they deserve and his hopes aren't what they used to be. Out of the blue he gets a call that an ex-girlfriend passed away - leaving him a child he didn't know he had. To make matters worse, his six year old daugh...

Reviews Kelsey's Song

  • UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish
    Kelsey’s Song is the first installment of The Wilder Books and let me just tell you, it was a delightfully refreshing story! I don’t think I’ve ever read a book quite like it, but with Kelsey’s calm strength, JD’s vulnerability but never-say-die spirit, and three adorable kids between them, I was captivated from the first page to the last. Then, as if that weren’t enough, throw in JD’s band-mates, a great storyline and I couldn’t ...

    Okay, I'm an experienced mother and a "young" grandmother, but I hear a kid scream and throw a tantrum in a store, I will probably run the other way, after looking at the "train-wreck". This book intrigued me right away with Kelsey's reaction to Andie's tantrum. She immediately tried to help in a non-threatening way. And, the story goes from there. You find out as the story evolves why this was Kelsey's first reaction - very instinctual for her.I...

    I found Kelsey's Song to be an enchanting romance, and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment that I spent reading it. I loved the characters of J.D. and Kelsey, and thought that the secondary characters added much to the story. The story captured my interest and kept it throuhout the book. I'm looking forward to reading the next Wilder book.J.D. Hewlitt left a high powered job and moved to Nashville to try to make it in the music world. Success hasn'...

    3/5; 3 stars; BThis book had one thing I really like in a romance novel; that is time for a romance to develop! I really enjoyed the fact that Kelsey and JD became friends over several months before they ever acknowledged any kind of romantic feelings. I would have rated this book higher, because the character development was great, but the last 100 pages totally knocked two stars off. I still liked the book and a B rating reflects that but one o...

    ~* 4.5 Stars *~Brought Love Back Into RomanceThere are few things as piercing to the eardrums as a screaming five-year-old in a store, and at the wails, single mother Kelsey Conklin sized up the situation with a studied gaze. One mortified, over-his-head-and-drowning-fast father, one furious little girl. She sympathized, having been there herself a time or two, and she did what she could to help the situation, shamelessly using her own two childr...

    There are differences between a "love story" and a romance. Those differences were kind of transparent to me until I read Kelsey's Song. It is wholly a love story. Kelsey is a single mother of two wonderful children who one day shopping at Target comes across a struggling single father whose daughter seems to be the spawn of Satan. She is strong, she is independent, and she is emotionally set on getting by day to day in the little world she has n...

    3.25 Stars (Although had the possibility of at least Four stars)Okay. I've had a little time to calm down. I ate lunch, chilled for an hour and let this book stew for little bit. If you look at my two previous status updates regarding this book, you'll understand my need to chill. Fair warning, there is a good possibility that this will contain spoilers. The story started off great. I was so happy that they found each other. Two single parents, o...

    Review: Kelsey's Song by Lanie Kincaid 4 STARSI enjoyed Kelsey Song but I was ready for it to end a little sooner, don't know if it was because I was tired or something else. Also by the discription I actually thought Andie was a demon child for real not a troubled child. Kelsey is a mother of two children Allie 4 and daniel 6 and lives in Nashville. She moved there from D.C. after her Andy died and her mother also passed away. Kelsey also worked...

    I requested this book from Netgalley in return for my honest review...I gave Kelsey's Song 4 out of 5 stars.Kelsey is one of the main characters in this story. She's a single mother of 2 kids (only one is biologically hers. She meets a guy called JD in Target store with his daughter Andie & helps him out with Andie's mega tantrum that she's throwing. She then finds out that JD & Andie live across the street from her & they strike up a good friend...

    I loved this book.... loved it to the point that I desperately want more JD and Kelsey. They meet in the middle of Target and form one of the most beautiful friendships I have seen in a book... Then that friendship turns to love... a love that was pulling at my heart. They were both so deep in love with each other that they couldn't bring themselves to share their feelings with each other... it was quite maddening, and had me so frustrated with b...

    When it comes to romance novels, I've read my share and had a taste of a variety of different plots and settings. In the end, they all seem to be the same in many areas until they blend together in one universal style: Man meets woman, man and woman have an odd way off hitting it off, man and woman misunderstand each other and have a falling out, man and woman gather their sanity and end up together like they're supposed to. You get that with Kin...

    This is one of the first books that I have read in a long time that was not recommended to me on Facebook or by one of my Goodreads friends and I am so glad I stumbled upon it.Kelsey's Song is one of the best romance novels I have ever read in the last year or so. We actually get to see the relationship develop between Kelsey and JD over the course of several months. So many books go from main characters not knowing each other to head over heal i...

    I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway and can't wait to read more by the author. Lanie Kincaid resparked my interest in romance novels. The characters are multi dimensional and I found myself cheering for them to connect. JD is a "too good to be true" main character who I found to be very endearing. His love interest, Kelsie, found a place in my heart. The book was hard to put down,and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the reade...

    At first reading the blurb I thought this was a paranormal romance. Why? It says that JD's daughter was a demon, I found out this was not the what the author meant literally but figuratively. Anyway, my fault there. Lol! Ok what can I say about this one was it was ok. At first I can,t seem to connect with JD and Kelsey's characters, I mean there was NO CHEMISTRY whatsoever, but things started picking up when Wilder (the band) becomes known. So I ...

    I got this book as a goodreads giveaway. I had signed up for it mainly because of the title. My daughter's name is Kelsey. Man am I glad that I got it. This is one of the best, relaxing books I have read in a long time. Infact, I went and ordered the second Wilder book "Second Chances" so that I would receive it by the time I was done with this one. I am very glad to have both of these books on my bookshelf and will probably re-read them down the...
  • Allie Bates
    The heroine has a gift for management. And her new neighbor, JD Hewlitt, the scruffy guy with band pipe dreams, needs some of that management to rub off on him and his daughter Andie. The story works because the characters are so complete. JD and Kelsey live on the page. Reviewed here.
  • Dolores
    A contemporary romance with appealing characters. This one has appeal on a lot of levels. It was very sweet and romantic, but with just the right amount of edge. There was a mystery element here too, because Kelsey's past was a bit obscure and the reader needed to put it together in bits and pieces.
