In a sensual, emotionally charged novel of love and loss, a tender affair gives two daring storm chasers the strength to overcome shattered dreams and the courage to build a future together.
Drew McGovern is living for two. Her fiancé, Colby, used to savor the feeling of a powerful gale, the rain pelting his face as the sky grew dark—until a shocking tragedy struck him down. Drew’s still grieving his death a year later when she bumps into some of his old storm chasing buddies. For reasons she can’t explain, she volunteers for the next tornado. But when she reconnects with Colby’s best friend, Aiden O’Neal, Drew gets a breath of fresh air that stirs the ashes of her broken heart.
Aiden doesn’t trust himself around Drew. He’s wanted this girl for a long time—long enough to remember the stab of jealousy he felt the first time he saw her in Colby’s arms, long enough to remember the tears that fell as they buried the man they each still miss. Now he’s trying his best to behave himself. But when the wind ruffles Drew’s hair and puts a sparkle in her eye, Aiden can’t resist the urge to hold her close. And when it comes to true love, he’s holding out hope that lightning strikes twice.

This was one good book. I couldn’t get enough of the story and these great characters. The author knew exactly how to pull the reader into the story and not let go until it was time to do so.
Drew thought she had it all. A guy who loved her so very much that he was marrying her very soon. Colby chased storms but always came back to her and she had a job she loved. Then why was she feeling like there was something more for her, somewhere? This story is about finding one self and realizing there is always something more. There is much loss, heartbreak but overall happiness within these pages. I cried for Drew and for everything she goes through. Sometimes you just can’t see the sun through the rain. But it’s there at the end, almost always. I related to Drew quite a bit and that is another reason I enjoyed this story.
Aiden had lost his family to a tornado and after that, he just kept to himself. No girlfriends just one night stands. He isn’t the relationship type and chasing storms help keep him happy. His best friend gets killed and he has always had feelings for his best friends girl but now that she is free and joining his storm team, it’s going to be harder than ever to stay away from her. Aiden, to me, is just a lost soul and needs someone to smack him upside the head and say “HEY YOU” WAKE UP! The growing relationship between him and Drew is cute. She is just as bullheaded as he is at times and that makes the story even better in my opinion. The way they go back and forth and back again is just like a normal relationship in my opinion.
This book has excitement and tragedy but it’s done in a way that you kept help but want to root for these characters. The rest of the storm chasers, I would love to know about their stories. In life, you just have to decide if jumping feet first into a storm is worth the risk coming out on the other end. In my opinion why not? You only live once!
