The Terms of Release Playlist


So. Sage and Win. Y’all. 

I can’t begin to tell you how much I love these boys. Sage is an ex-con, Win is a sheriff. What could POSSIBLY go wrong? ;-)

It’s a fact that I need playlists. They’re vital to my process and Sage and Win are no different. Now most of the songs on the list are just… it’s a feeling, huh? Something that makes me go, that’s for the boys. (Also, for those that are keeping score, it’s THESE versions.) A few of the songs are vitally important and those I’ve marked for you. 

Here's Sage and Win's playlist:

A Modern Day Prodigal Son by Brantley Gilbert  — this is the song that started everything. I mean, everything. I heard this and, although I’d heard it 100 times, it was like listening to it for the first time and… Sage was born.

I love when one song jumpstarts it all! I'm gonna have to look that one up, and Bang Bang by Nancy Sinatra and OMG you have Adam Lambert on here \0/ (a really good one too) - and what a story this looks like it's going to be \0/

Wow, I haven't thought of that Nancy Sinatra song in a loooong time. I think most people only remember her boots song...and I don't think they were cowboy boots, either. Hahaha!

Is it fair to ask whether this book is an HEA, HFN, or an Oh, shit! story? I have noticed a trend toward the Oh, shit! stories and they really don't fit into the joyful escapism portion of my reading list.
