Playlist Monday with Heidi McLaughlin + Giveaway

I haven't done this for a while now but I'm back with Playlist Monday! Today I have here Heidi McLaughlin author of Forever My Girl which I recently read and love, my review will be posted soon but we have Heidi here to know more about the songs that inspired her in writing Forever My Girl, so without further ado here's Heidi taking center stage!


Music is a huge part of who I am. I always have my iPod or iTunes turned on and I’m constantly looking for new music. One of my best friends is a musician, so he’s always introducing me to new music. He’s also my sounding board when I find someone I like.

I have a playlist for everything with some songs making it on multiple lists. My music taste varies. While I’m not a country fan, I do enjoy some of the artists and will buy their music. I do tend to like Top 40 or this “new” alternative.

Painkillers by Eric Heatherly – This is a song that Liam “writes” to Josie, hoping to explain who he was without her in his life.

Unfortunately, at this time, there isn't a video. However, this song is a huge part of Forever My Girl and such that the first 200 people who purchase the book and email their receipt to will receive a free download.

It’s Time by Imagine Dragons – The title alone tells the story. It’s time for Liam to return home and face the consequences of his actions.

One and Only by Adele – This is very Josie. She’s moved on, but the ghost of Liam still lingers in her mind.

Home by Michael Buble – Home really captures what life was like for Liam on the road.

Broken by Lifehouse – There is a moment in Forever My Girl where Liam tells Josie what he looked for at each concert. This is how he felt, looking, but never finding her.

Secrets by OneRepublic – Secrets is truly fitting for both Liam and Josie as they come to terms with what’s lingering between them. Both have secrets, yet both are willing to put them aside.

Don’t You Wanna Stay – Jason Aldean & Kelly Clarkson – a perfect indication of Liam’s struggles where Josie is concerned.

Thank you Heidi for the wonderful Playlist! I love Adele and Kelly Clarkson!

I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I've poured my soul into my music, but I've never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.

And now I’m going back.

After ten years.

I hope I can explain that after all this time.

I still want her to be my forever girl.

My grandma once told me that I can do anything I want, so I am.

Originally from the Pacific Northwest, I now live in picturesque Vermont, with my husband and two daughters. Also renting space in our home is an overhyper Beagle/Jack Russell and two Parakeets.

During the day you'll find me behind a desk talking about Land Use. At night, I'm writing one of the many stories I plan to release or sitting courtside during either daughter's basketball games.

I'm also an active reviewer on The Readiacs - a site I own with my best friend and uber special beta, Yvette.
