BOOK REVIEW...The Mighty Storm (The Storm #1) by Samantha Towle

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?

While I loved this book to pieces, I guess what bugged me was the repeated facts and thoughts sprouting from Tru. She annoyed me with her insecurity and inability to let things go and live in the present.

Jake, on the other hand, is your typical bad boy rockstar with demons. Sounds a bit cliche right?

Jake and Tru were once childhood best friends who got separated when his family moved from the UK to the US. Communication dwindles and the two don't hear and see each other until 12 years later.

By then, like mentioned before, Jake is a famous rock star and Tru is a journalist working for a small magazine. Only now, Tru's next big gig is interviewing none other than...Jake!! Buahahaha.

Neither party has forgotten each other and the spark is still there. But, to throw a wrench into things, Tru is in a serious relationship with long time boyfriend, Will.

Are they truly meant to be? Can these two fly high in the mighty storm that's about they're about to face?

My Rating:

-Overall : 8.5
