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:
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.

This is my second book by Sydney Logan and I’m still amazed by her writing and how she can convey emotions, from a single look to a first encounter, I felt a lot, sensed the tension in the air, the joy and laughter, from good times to the bad ones.
Listen to your Heart is a romantic comedy full of charm, sparkling, truly sincere and sugary sweet.
So when I read the blurb, I was intrigued. How can the author will manage that story? The only thing I can say? She did it great.
Skye Douglas is a wedding planner. Owning her business with her best friend,they are successful busy with a lot of weddings to plan.
Unlucky in love but having her nephew of 10 yo to care about since his parents were struggling with her personal lives, she was so happy to see him enjoying his music class. 80’s music fan, hopeless romantic, witty and sweet, the read haired is still looking for love. Until she met her nephew’s new music teacher.
Caleb Lynch … how do I start? Oh yes, first I have a crush for sure. Loyal, caring, handsome and just .. le sigh, book boyfriend material.
New music teacher, very charming and attractive, he wasn’t looking for complications at this moment of his life. Honoring his best friend’s mother wishes, he was determined to stick to his plan … until he met Skye.
I was talking earlier about the way the author could convey emotions, for example, let just say that Caleb and Skye first encounter marked me. I had the impression to be there at this moment and be a witness of a “love at first sight” scene. After finishing the book, a lot of moments were still in my mind. I was so into the book that I read it in one sitting. I couldn’t stop.
As a music lover, I enjoyed to read how passionate they were, how music was a big part of the story. It gave a great rhythm, the music matching the character’s mood. Back to the plot, even if the issue was predictable, I was surprised by all the turning events. Some subplots and twists for sure, leading to heartbreaking times, they had a lot to overcome but I loved reading their journey.
I admit it, I was very wary of the storyline at first. I wanted to see where the author was leading us, how create something when the main characters were doomed from the start? Thanks to the second characters, who are an interesting addition to the story. They played a great part on Caleb and Skye’s HEA and I have a big spot for her nephew.
I had a huge smile on this book throughout the story. It was romantic, sweet, funny, tons of good mood vibes, I was for one moment somewhere else. Totally far away from the real world, stuck into Caleb and Skye’s. I was a little sad to leave these great characters and I can tell without hesitation that I will read this book more than once. Absolutely sure about it.
