For this #MusicMonday, I have selected a song from one of my favorite bands: 30 Seconds To Mars. As most fans of the “Dream Catchers Series” know, this band has been my muse since the first book. Tortured, the fictional band in “Dream Catchers” has taken shape while listening to 30STM’s music. While writing “Breaking The Moon”, the band’s album This Is War came out and like their first two albums, this one fit right in with my soundtrack to the series. Over time, the songs didn’t just represent Jordan and Haley any longer but also Cami and her sometimes difficult relationships.
SONG: “Alibi” (Purchase on iTunes)
ARTIST: 30 Seconds To Mars
BOOK: “Take Me Home” (Purchase on Amazon / Barnes & Noble)
CHARACTERS: Cami Woods and Danny DeSano
INSIGHT: In “Breaking The Moon”, we get a sneak peek of the argumentative relationship Cami has with Danny. “Take Me Home” dives deeper to show the exhausting, confusing and destructive marriage the two hotheaded Italians have with one another, ultimately ending with Danny cheating on Cami while pregnant with their child. The song “Alibi” is about being knocked down, but getting back up again.

When Cami finds herself living a life she never imagined it wasn’t in a good way. Single and a sometimes single Mom to say she hit rock bottom would be an understatement. She didn’t only lose her husband – she lost herself. It was a much needed getaway in Florida that really rocks her world. Running into an old friend and spending some time at the New York Yankee’s training camp really puts some life back into Cami.Finding the strength to ignore the adversity of dating someone a decade younger than she – Cami finds herself again. The ‘self’ she never knew she could be.I cried with Cami, I rooted for her, and I laughed with her. Sandy Lo really knocks it out of the park (har har?) with the next installation to her Dream Catchers series. I give this book a five star beach read! Download it today!
