If I had to distill the Off the Map series to a single song, my vote is for “Hopeless Wanderer” by Mumford & Sons. The lyrics remind me of a conversation between two young hurting lovers. There is acknowledgement of the fear and self-doubt that has haunted their journey, but passion infuses every word and there’s a wild hope for the road ahead. That’s Talia and Bran to me.

I also happen to have a major Jason Bateman crush so love the music video.

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other…which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by theWant-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs.

We’re going with Take Me To Church, by Hozier because the lyrics and music are completely unreal, but we are switching it up a little and choosing the Ed Sheeran cover for obvious Ed Reasons. This song definitely has Finn/Harlow feels, with “should have worshipped her sooner” and, of course:

If I’m a pagan of the good times
My lover’s the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice
To drain the whole sea

Synopsis from Goodreads

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

This song was on repeat for days on end while writing Burying Water. Everything about it—the tempo, the lyrics, the mood—helped get me into Water’s head space while she picked up and started her life over in Sisters, Oregon. The lyrics are both poignant and hopeful, much like Water’s past and present.

Finding Mr Darcy: High School Edition Synopsis

Sixteen-year-old Liza Johnson takes fangirl to a whole new level of crazy when she decides to take dating advice from her literary hero: Jane Austen.

With the help of her best friends, Liza sheds her ancient-speak and complete Austen wardrobe for something a bit more modern in an attempt at finding her very own Mr. Darcy.

Enter Will, the new kid and Liza’s Darcy incarnate. Add her BFF’s ex to mix and the sexy Brit who kisses with an accent, and Liza is in trouble. 

So, what’s a girl to do? Without her mom to go to relationship advice, Liza turns to the only person she can truly trust with matters of the heart via her mother’s copy of COMPLETED WORKS OF JANE AUSTEN. 

It’s too bad Austen’s heroines have never played Spin the Bottle or Seven Minutes in Heaven. Liza’s determined to find her true Austen-esque happy ending, but if she can’t trust herself instead of books, she just might end up in her own tragic love story.

To me, this song is all about those first crush feels and boy does Liza get them–several times. :) When she realizes who was perfect for her all along, she gets Boom Clap times a thousand! This song is just so much fun and it’s what I hope readers get out of Finding Mr. Darcy: High School Edition.

BOOK SUMMARY

She’s a tomboy. He’s the boy next door…

Charlie Reynolds can outrun, outscore, and outwit every boy she knows. But when it comes to being a girl, Charlie doesn’t know the first thing about anything. So when she starts working at a chichi boutique to pay off a speeding ticket, she finds herself in a strange new world. To cope with the stress of her new reality, Charlie takes to spending nights chatting with her neighbor Braden through the fence between their yards. As she grows to depend on their nightly Fence Chats, she realizes she’s got a bigger problem than speeding tickets-she’s falling for Braden. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.

Fun, original, and endearing, On the Fence is a romantic comedy about finding yourself and finding love where you least expect.

How fun! The song I want to pick is “talking to the moon” by Bruno Mars. Every time I hear that song I think of ON THE FENCE. Mainly because Charlie and Braden spend a lot of time doing just that. :)
