Publisher's Summary

It's been 12 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 14. 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?

    "This book was WONDERFUL !"

    This book was such a WONDERFUL surprise ! I do not know the author. I bought it because I am a big fan of the narrator Justine Ayre. But I was pleasantly surprised! I am not agog fan of rock stars, but this book makes you fall in love with one! This book was so well written , exploring the difficulties in celebrity personal relationships. The plot was good, the interactions and the characters, all well well well written. I LOVED IT.
    Moreover, Justine Eyre is such a good narrator, but with this book she had outdone herself !!! She did such an excellent job with this book. She improves each time I listen to her. Well done! I believe this book is part of a series , I can not wait !

    "The narrator ruined the book."

    I read this book on my kindle before getting the audiobook at a discount. I'm so glad I did! The narrator's voice was annoying and did not fit the part. I would not have been able to finish the book if I had not read it first. The narrator's voice and performance is that bad. It's a shame because many people will be turned off by it.

    "Good performance of a predictable story"

    Wow, this book took a long time to really catch my interest. Tru has to be the most indecisive female lead ever! She must have whiplash from how often and how quickly she changes her mind. Jake is your typical bad boy rocker with a bad childhood. As expected, he self medicates with drugs, alcohol and women. The one redeeming value is that they were childhood best friends and it's interesting seeing how that affects their relationship.

    "Great Story - Great Narrator"
    Where does The Mighty Storm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Close to the top. The British narrator was captivating to listen to and I really enjoyed this story. I definitely recommend it to my book friends.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake - he is quite swoon worthy.


    What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?

    Her British accent heightened my experience as I heard her voice not the one in my head who is not British.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No laughing or crying but it was intense at times. I may have shouted at Trudy once or twice while listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I have generally steered clear of rockstar romances because I don't care for the lifestyle and shenanigans they typically glamorize. I took a chance with this book and I am so glad I did because this is NOT your typical rockstar romance. It is SO MUCH MORE.

    Jake Wethers may behave like a typical rockstar, but he is somewhat of an anomaly. Beneath the brooding musician is a complex man with wounds that run deep and a heart that has only loved one woman. While I disliked the behaviors, I fell in love with Jake. I was quite upset with Tru for a bit, but as the story progressed I came to understand the connection she found with Jake. They were soul mates.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story, less a couple of things. I was enthralled with these characters taking every spare moment I could to read or listen to the audiobook. I was especially pleased to have book #2 ready to go right away.

    "The female lead is a sniveling twit!"

    God, I so disliked Trudi. I just can't find one redeeming value in her character. She will tell a lie when the truth will do just as good, she is weak and a coward. So, she runs into her long lost childhood friend Jake, who is now a famous rock star. There is instant lust/obsession, remembered love, blah, etc...Trudi has boyfriend of 2 years who she cheats on, but she's too lame to be honest with him, drama ensues.... oh hell, just read it if you like this kind of bull$hit triangle drama. Good thing she's beautiful, 'cause we know that's the most important thing about her anyway, otherwise, I can't see why any man would put up with this insecure, idiot, who hasn't matured since she was 14.

    "Living the Dream"
    Where does The Mighty Storm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very entertaining book. There are several rock star series out there now. I would say it matches up to them


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake of course. Got to love the sexy rockers with a difficult past and finding the right girl to finally settle down with.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I do not feel the right narrator was cast for this book. The narrator, although very good, did not match up to the characters. She is a better fit for a Jane Austin type of book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions, but at times hard to put down. I listed to the book twice, so I did enjoy the story.

    "Don't Pass this one up!!!"
    Would you listen to The Mighty Storm again? Why?

    This was a great listen.... it has every emotional imaginable... including forgiveness.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake by far ..... he has so many emotional hurdles to over come.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The tear jerking emotional time in the hotel room between Tru and Jake.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when Tru found Jake with another woman.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a huge surprise. I get tired of of two part stories, but I definitely think this one is a great one to follow!! I cannot wait to read part two!

    Story
    "Jake and Tru have captured my heart..."
    Would you listen to The Mighty Storm again? Why?

    Yes....I love Jake and Tru and I love their story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mighty Storm?

    Not for any good reasons...but the Mr. Brightside scene...ripped my heart out.


    What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?

    I loved her accent, she sounded a little too old to really pull Tru off for me and I don't know if it's the recording or her but she had a little bit of a lisp at times - but British accents = awesome in my book, so I'm really just being nit-picky


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Just everything that makes Tru and Jake who they are - I just love them to bits and pieces.


    Any additional comments?

    Great beginning to a fantastically addictive series - I really can't say too many times how much this book sucked me in.
