Review : The Mighty Storm by Samantha Towle

The Mighty StormThe Mighty Storm by Samantha Towle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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 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 fourteenSent 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 worlds most notorious womanizer?
I need more. I need to know what happens next in their lives! This is a perfect set up for a sequel! Yes, it also works as a stand alone but I need to know more. I may be slightly addicted to Jake. Maybe. Okay, I am. The first step is admitting it, right?

I was so close to not even getting this book. I don't like love triangles. Actually, that is putting it way too mildly. I HATE love triangles. However, Will was a perfect catalyst for the first conflict in the book. He was actually so nice that I disliked him for being so nice. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a bad boy. Especially a bad boy rocker. Put a nice guy in front of me and then put a rocker next to him and you best believe I'll be summoning my inner White Snake groupie.

I really thought this was going to be one of those books that let me down in the middle. I thought that the big conflict would be resolved and then I would get bored. Wow, was I ever wrong on that one! If anything, I enjoyed the second half of the book even more than the first. I loved seeing that raw, aching emotion that just made you want to cry on behalf of everyone involved. That kind that makes your heart squeeze in your chest until you feel like taking a deep breath would just be too difficult. That was the second half of the book for me.

That being said, all gushing aside, I did have some moments of annoyance but I can't recall (at this moment, I am sure if I searched I might find one) any book that I didn't have those. My main issue was Tru's stubbornness. I could almost understand it though after things were explained a bit more thoroughly. My advice? Get annoyed with her, get aggravated with the situation...

and then keep on lovin' Jake.

    Well... Im like you.
    i HATE triangles. So tired of them. I feel like it takes away from the relationship if 1 person (the girl) looooves 2 boys.
    DUMB

    BUT- if you still liked the book so much, even with the Triangle, i might have to give it a try!!

    Great review

  2. Sometimes there's certain things that you grow to love or hate about a book, but if an author knows how to do it just right, you end up loving the book! It happened to me with a book I recently read!

    I have been seeing great reviews for this book and just added it to my TBR books and am going to start on it this week!

    I just started following your blog and hope you can stop by my page and follow back as well! I have a book cover reveal this week that I am really excited about and hope you can check it out!

    Thanks for the review.
