"They say there's a consequence to everything. Each choice and action made can either make or break you--in my case, it's left me with a gaping hole that I fill every day with guilt, shame, and regret. I should've saved him. I could've. But I didn't. Sometimes late at night when my demons haunt me, I wish I could go back. Back to when I was that naive, punk kid who thought the world was full of rainbows and butterflies. Back to where my soul didn't feel so strained and broken. But I can't. I have to live with my failures. And it doesn't matter how hard I run, there's no escaping my guilt."

Cooper Hensley is the perfect front man for the Damaged Souls. After returning from his time as a Marine, all he wants is to bury himself into the rock and roll lifestyle with music, alcohol, and one night stands. Chasing sweet oblivion to numb his pain, nothing can rattle his carefully guarded heart . . . that is until Caylee Sawyer comes looking for the man she believes a hero. What she finds instead is someone broken, someone who needs to forgive himself and move on, someone who affects her so completely, she can't walk away. But can she convince him to lower his guard long enough for her to claim his heart? And when he does, will she be prepared for the consequences?

A beautiful read with deep and touching characters. Not your typical boy meets girl, boy and girl have a misunderstanding romance novel. One of the best stories I've read in a very long time. Loved it and hoping for more.

Awesome Book! This is an awesome book; this is the first book in the A Damaged Souls series by Belinda Boring. Cooper Hensley is a former Marine who feels broken since his time in Afghanistan. He is trying to deal with PSD and the loss of his best friend that he lost in Afghanistan. He is the perfect front man for the band Damaged Souls. He wants to just lose himself in the rock and roll lifestyle. Caylee Sawyer comes looking for a hero, but when she sees Cooper she realizes that he is broken and that he needs to forgive himself in order to heal. If you are looking for a great romance that will leave you with all kinds of feelings then you need to read this book. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

A truly beautifully poetic story of moving on, letting go, and starting again. Two people with the same loss, one who is trying to move on, while the other chooses punishment. Something that seems as though it should be forbidden is the one thing to give them both the second chance they need. I was fully enthralled with Caylee and Coopers story. It was emotional, deep, and beautiful.

Bittersweet Melody by Belinda Boring 4 1/2 stars Caylee and Cooper are two damaged souls tied together in a way that can never be undone. As they each follow their path of heartbreak, and their path to healing, I was sucked in, had my heart twisted around in knots, and then had some hope for each of them to find a new happiness. Their banter and chemistry was both funny and steamy. I fell in love with Caylee and Cooper, and can't wait to read the next part!

Bittersweet Melody is a book about love, hope, loss, friendship, trust, and believing in yourself. Belinda Boring has done a great job of bringing all of those ideas together into one seamless story. Cooper Hensley is a smoking hot veteran from the Marines that has seen too much in war. He is broken and hanging on loosely. He doesn’t think that he deserves anything good out of life anymore and if content with letting the guilt of his time overseas eat away at him. Caylee Sawyer is trying to overcome the most traumatic and miserable time of her life. It is something that she thinks that Cooper can help her with. But the question is, Will Copper be willing and able to help her? It just might cost him more than either of them think. The storyline that Belinda has been able to weave together will draw you in and not let you go. Even after finishing this book (no cliffhanger!) you will still want more. You will even read the book over again just to get more. Belinda has brought the characters to life and makes you want to be a part of their lives and know as much as you can about them. I cannot wait for more books to come out about the people in this book. I know that I will love each and every one of them.
