What’s the story about?
It’s been twelve years since Tru Bennett last saw Jake Wethers, her former best friend and boy she once loved.
Jake Wethers, sexy, tattooed and deliciously bad lead singer, and brains behind The Mighty Storm, one of the biggest bands in the world, left Tru with a broken heart when he moved from England to America with his family when they were both fourteen.
Sent to interview Jake for her music column by the magazine she works for, they are both unprepared for the sparks that fly the instant they reconnect. Only, there’s a complication to their instant feelings for one another—Will, Tru’s boyfriend of two years.
Then Jake makes Tru a job offer she can’t refuse—travelling the world with him and his band. But taking the job means leaving Will behind, and being on the road with the band means spending an inordinate amount of time with Jake.
Is Tru strong enough to resist the delectable bad boy who once held her heart so completely, or will she willingly risk it all for one night with the world’s most notorious womanizer?
An absolutely AMAZING story. I love love love this book. Like, SOOOOOO much!!!!
This is one of the best second chance, rockstar romance books I’ve read in a VERY long time… maybe ever. It’s got everythingyou ever want in a rockstar romance. It’s so sizzling hot, you will be fanning yourself all. the. time.
Best friends Tru and Jake were neighbours in England for many years. One day. Jake and his mum moved with her new husband to America and Tru never heard from Jake again.
12 years later Tru is working for a magazine and her editor has set up an interview with one of the worlds biggest (and hottest) rockstars in the world, Jake. Tru is assigned the job, as she and Jake have a history, and her editor is hoping that will help Jake open up more than what he has in the past.
“Jake Wethers, the man who used to be the boy I loved.”
The chemistry between Jake and Tru is there from the very first second, and boy can you feel it! It’s seriously sizzling hot, Jake is all sex, he’s all man, and he’s SO in love with Tru, you can feel it through the pages. All the flirting, cheeky texts, Jake’s sneaky move have Tru closer to him are all reasons why I freakin’ love this book.
NOW – there is a love triangle. Tru has been with her boyfriend, Will, for 2 years. And normally, love triangles make me queasy, but for some reason, this was an exception. I think maybe because I fell in love with Jake from the minute Tru stepped into the interview, and from then on, I just wanted them to be together.
“He leans back and stares down at me, and then I suddenly see it there in his eyes, unconcealed. The lust. The want. He wants me. He’s trying to seduce me. I’m so completely fucked.”
The Mighty Storm is filled with so much drama, it’s crazy. You get to know all the band members in Jake’s band (The Mighty Storm) quite well, and you also get to know more about the type of life Jake has been living the last 12 years. This causes problems and huge trust issues on both parts, but all this just adds to the greatness of the book.
So, can I pleeeeese talk more about Jake? – OK – did I mention how ridiculously SEXY this man is?? Totally insatiable. I would drop everything in a heart beat if he came knocking on my door. The man is dripping with sex, but he is also the sweetest rockstar I’ve come across. The way he treats Tru is really beyond words. Don’t get me wrong, he’s not perfect, not even close, but that is why I love him. I freakin’ love him.
“I loved you from the moment I knew how to love.”
There is a second book – Weathering the Storm – but there is no cliffhanger. It ends well for Jake and Tru, but it was definitely a very hard road to getting there.
Samantha Towle writes a brilliant novel, fast paced, gripping, it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. There was not a moment that I wanted to put the book down (although life does happen around you) but I was so eager to come back to it everytime.
I could read about Jake and Tru all day long. They are one of my favourite book couples and The Mighty Storm will go down as one of the best rockstar romances ever written in my books. This one takes pride on my bookshelf.
“…I’m not going anywhere. Remember, I promised. I’m yours now, forever.”
Here are my two choices for Jake and Tru.
