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?

Yes to Samantha Towle but I will never buy something else from Justine Eyre. I disliked the accent of the narrator.
When Jake proposed to Tru at the end... Heart melting moment.
This story was absolutely amazing; however my biggest complaint is the narrator. Normally I would rather have the audible form of the book but I would enjoy this one more by just reading it.
The Mighty Storm’ was a great audio listen story wise as it did sweep me up in to a wave of emotions and I liked it, for sure! The story starts off slow and it really takes a while to develop. I will be getting the sequel when it comes out cause I want to know how the story continues. The story between Tru, Jake, and Will was very close to being what I was hoping but it never did hit that high note. Although the story was good I was hoping for more as the turmoil that there relationship faced was barely touched upon. I think I was looking for more angst in this love story.
I did not like Justin Eyre narration in the beginning and it took me a while to get into the narrators voice as she sounded more like a snobby British girl then a common British girl working at a magazine that was trying to figure out our friendship and eventually love towards Jake. The male voices she did really didn't even sound attractive, but after a long while her voice was just ok and I got through the story.
It is the perfect fantasy love story that we ladies all desire to have and may have had to some degree if you have ever been entwined with a rock band. The highs the lows, the misgivings, and the forgiven, all of it: the unimaginable feel goods to the most miserable emptiness and self loathing, all which finally yields to the mighty storm, LET IT THUNDER!!!
I was in the mood for a love story and that is what I got. I really liked this book, ok Tru was a little wishy washy and Jake was a bit sappy at times but overall it was a well written and nicely performed book. I can't wait for book two.
Say something about yourself!
The concept of this book was awesome, the delivery lacked. The coupling came far too easy, and the drama felt forced. I wanted this to have the magic of Sinners...I wanted it to have the suspense of thoughtless, it just didn't come through, and the steamy scenes didn't steam.
If you aren't into the graphic thing and just looking for an easy love story then this should appeal to you and be well worth your credit. For me it just didn't appeal, I won't be waiting with baited breath for book 2.
Only listened to the audio version
True AND Jake of course. I wanted to kick True's butt at the end of the book but that means it's good writing. I also would have liked it to go a little longer to allow the ending to unfold. Or---book 2 perhaps???
She did a fantastic job narrating. Great job at Jake's voice.
It made me laugh several times and tear up toward the end.
Looking forward to more books by Samantha Towle. Get writing!
Friendship, Lust, Love
Jake. Loved Jake. I really related to his difficult childhood and how it molded him into the lovely, vulnerable, strong ,sexy, sensitive man he is now. The friendship between him and Tru as children was really special and brought a uniqueness into their adult relationship that you seldom find. I also adored Tru and Stewart.
This was the first time I had heard her read. I loved her. Can't wait till the next book comes out!!!
The last Chapter when Jake pulled out the Tiffany Ring, I found myself holding my breath and expecting Tru to walk away...
Is there another book? When does it come out?
this is a great story about losing the love of your life and finding them as an adult and almost losing them due to lack of communication.
I would recommend this to all to read.
I cannot wait for the next book!
love to escape in to my Books, Historical, Highlander Scottish Romance , Mysteries & Suspense , Time Travel the Classics, Paranormal Romance
It would have been a good story but
That so called Heroin is the absolutely an idiot and such an immature and self-center spoiled childish woman.
I WASTED my time reading/ listening to this garbage. If that is friendship or love this woman has for the guy I eat a broom that is not in no way love I in no way ever read any of that kind of stuff again I like reading a good love-story and some of the Hero-and Heroin may be not so great but this self-center and the most immature asinine women I am so irritated for wasting my time and credit over that story. Sorry I am just so irriteded over this story this clueless heroinwhat this heroin has is such a very selfish self serving love.
