Much better than the first book (The Mighty Storm) in the series. Tru is still frustrating indecisive and changes thoughts and opinions on a dime. There is still lots of steamy sex. Jake is still a bad boy rocker, but he totally redeems himself in the end. The book summary makes a big deal about Jake not wanting kids and it being a potential deal breaker, but that issue resolves rather quickly. By 75% in things were going so well that I knew something bad was coming because there was too much book left. And boy was it bad! But, don't fret, there is a very happy ending! Jake turns out to be a true romantic and a wonderful father! I listened to this book while exercising and it provided a pleasant diversion.
I liked the first book but this second one was hard to finish. I struggled to find the plot of the book and the only real action happened in the last hour and a half.
The book picks up nicely after the end of the first. Then it's all about how much they love each other and how great live is for them. I actually found myself groaning every time Tru starts gushing about how wonderful Jake is and can't believe she was good enough for him. Both characters are in a scary co-dependent relationship with massive trust issues and it was kinda sad to see how they both tried to control the other person. I did a lot of eye rolling.
I usually like this narrator too but maybe it was the character but things started to sound whiney and desperate. I think it was the tone of the book and not her performance that made me give such a low review.
Let those who you love know today, tomorrow is not promised! Life experience, Mishawn
First book was great second book A must read or listen. Has everything you need in a book. Looking forward to more books from Samantha.
Since I paid for the first 2 books, I felt like I had to give the second book a try. Sometimes, the first book can be bad but the 2nd book shows that the author can grow and do a much better job. Unfortunatly, that didn't happen. Don't waste your money, I'm asking for mine back.
I got to see the ever after of Jake and Tru. It wasn't perfect, but it is fabulous. Jake was continuously reinstating his fidelity. He did not cheat, not even 'lookery'. The twist in the story had me scared for a moment, but I am relieved. And we got JJ out of it. Yeah, am being vague right now. No spoilers.
Maybe SC Stephens 'Reckless'. There was almost the same type of twist.
Jake with JJ for the first time, and his subsequent care for him.
Will do anything for books!
I loved the conclusion to this great story, so many ups and downs and turn arounds, some insecurities and all that, but oh so good. Totally a necessity if you read the first you MUST read the 2nd.

This is the second book in the Mighty Storm series. It followed in the same vein as the first but of course, now we get the HEA which was satisfying even if predictable. The secondary characters enhanced the story and created a fun atmosphere. Looking forward to more in the series.
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
both the Mighty Storm and this the second book in this series was well worth the credit. i really loved the story and all the characters. I laughed and cried, mostly cried but i would gladly read it again an cry some more, it is that good. i was truly sorry to have it end.
Justine Eyre did an amazing job narrating but trust me when i say i will be looking for more stories by this author
