If you haven’t tuned into the “Shaughnessy Brothers” yet, you are missing another wonderful series of romance and family dynamics by one of my favorite authors Samantha Chase. Book three of the series “This Is Our Song” takes us up close to Riley Shaughnessy, the musician of the clan.

Battling a musician’s block, a deadline looming and with the label threatening his very career, Riley Shaughnessy is going through the worst time of his life and having a judgmental entertainment reporter writing an article about him is not his kind of music.


Stardom doesn’t faze Savannah Daly and neither does sexy and handsome rock stars. Or so she thinks, until she’s forced to write an article about Riley and ends up spending a month with him and his family. If you’ve read the Shaughnessys, you know they can be pretty overwhelming.

Another charming love story although I think Samantha Chase gave more importance to Riley’s angst, insecurities and issues, which is a welcome change, rather than a full-blown romance. You’ll read more of the family dynamics in this book than others, and it is actually pretty neat as the circumstances are created for us to be a part of the Shaughnessy family. And adding Savannah’s parents to the equation makes it pretty interesting. So be prepared to read more of Riley’s thoughts, family banter and interaction, and less of Riley and Savannah romance.

You’ll like Riley and Savannah as they go through the ups and downs of love, navigating the various high notes as well as the low notes, trying to find their song. This love story is more of Riley, and the Shaughnessys and a tad less of romance between Savannah and Riley. And Samantha Chase doesn’t disappoint, yet this story is very different from her usual style.
