Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

The Mighty Storm (The Storm, #1) - Samantha Towle Well, overall I give The Might Storm a solid 4 stars.

The first half of the book, I was not overjoyed with the situation or Tru's handling of it. Generally, she is not on any 'favorite character' list of mine. She needed to put on her big girl panties MUCH sooner than she did.

Jake... oh, Jake. He was so swoony I was able to look past Tru's shortcomings. He has issues, he's somewhat bossy, and he is an overconfident ass. I didn't feel his demanding, rock star personality to be unrealistic or unbelievable. And his moments of romance- although not a 'romantic' guy by his own estimation he really does have unbelievable panty vanquishing powers they just melt my heart.

The book is almost like two books in one. There's 'before' triangle and 'after' triangle. The 'before' was akin to the train wreck of a relationship in Beautiful Disaster. It make me cringe, but I couldn't stop reading. I found myself up WAY too late reading. On the other hand, it also frustrated me and drove me up the wall.

'After' was totally different. Still the same characters, essentially the same story but different obstacles were rearing their ugly head. Again, I felt frustrated with Tru's choices and how she handled everything. But, I had less problem with this section compared to the first. I also wish we got a little more details, or seen more of Jake's 'inner demons'. I was ultimately satisfied with the ending (although one part I say coming a mile away).

I would recommend this for anyone that likes 'sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll'; rich, handsome, alpha, damaged males; somewhat spicier romance; and a 'messy' love story. It's not all hearts and flowers, and easy love. It's downright volatile.
