Publisher's summary

After leaving the city life behind to escape my loveless marriage, I moved to small-town Havenbarrow for a fresh start. 

What I didn’t expect was to find myself drawn to the town’s black sheep. They called him troubled, cold, a man with a dark past. 

What everyone seemed to miss about Jax was the splashes of light in his eyes, the random acts of kindness he performed when no one was watching, and the way he made me smile and laugh. 

Jax helped unpack the baggage I’d been carrying around with me. He was patient with my pain and gentle with my scars. He was the stillness during my hurricane. 

Yet when both of our pasts came back to haunt our present days, we realized quickly that sometimes love stories don't end the way we’d hoped. 

Sometimes you were left with only the damage from the storm.

Hold on to your credit

The book had a good premise . It is about a woman recovering from trauma and divorce moving to a small town and finding herself. I DNF; I had 1hr left and I could not take it anymore. If you like your heroines to be resilient women even when bad things happen- this is not the book for you. She suffered a terrible trauma and bad marriage to a narcissist which led her to have severe anxiety and panic attacks yet she keeps claiming she is fine and did not seek therapy. She’s dating a man who suffered CA and trauma and is in therapy. She is incapacitated yet she keeps insisting she is dealing. I agree with his ex girlfriend- MMC deserves better .
The storyline attempts to create mystery by dragging the plot line of what the traumas are. However, it just falls flat and you are left confused of the point of the circuitous route with no little substance . Most of the book also feels like daily activity diary with no point.
The voice of the FMC is childlike and well matched to the fmc character . However she has very little range in her voice . Therefore if she is reading another characters voice , there is very little difference . Her voice was honestly unbearable .
This is what happens when you take book recommendation from TikTok- serves me right .
Keep your credit- you deserve a better story .

Narrators Ruined it For Me

I love the plot of the story. I’m a fan of childhood friends growing up to find love with each other, but I really think that the narrator‘s ruined this for me. The title says, “Southern Storms”, and they were supposedly living in Kentucky, yet there wasn’t one is southern accent in any of the characters. I just thought that their performance was lackluster and it really made me want to stop listening. I should’ve just read this book instead because I am a big fan of Brittainy Cherry. A lot of times I like to look at edits of books to get the character in my mind, but most of the edits I found were pictured the female character as black. There was no where in the description of the book that says she’s black. I know that doesn’t matter, and it’s such a little thing, but it did bug me because I am into details.

This is such a lovely story and I think it could’ve been much better had there been to narrators doing a better job at it. It was just disappointing for me.

Enjoyed this new world!

As usual, Brittainy brings you an incredible, emotional story.
Some of my favorite kind of characters are the sensitive, broken types and Jax and Kennedy fit the bill.
It's a compelling story of overcoming some traumatic events to find their place with each other after reconnecting. I had some trouble following the timelines and some parts of the story felt unfinished to me but overall I enjoyed this new world. There were plenty of side characters to go along with this that I hope to see more of in the upcoming stories.
I listened to this on audio and I thought Kennedy's narrator was good, but Jax's voice didn't really fit the character so much.

5 Sun and Moon Stars.

5 Sun and Moon Stars. Absolutely loved this one! A tragically beautiful story about weathering the storm and getting to the other side. Jax and Kennedy’s story grabs you from the prologue and their journey will hold you until the last word. I highly recommend this must listen! I really enjoyed the narration.

“Maybe it isn’t about getting to the sunlight, but being able to weather the storm with those you love most.”

Not Enough

For some reason, I expected this book to flood me with emotion and heart and instead it just kind of fell flat for me. It felt like the build up took so long and then the ending felt rushed and insincere.

The narrators didn’t do it for me either. The female narrators range was limited and all the characters sounded super, super young and the same.

The male reader..

The male reader is horrible. I love this author but he ruined this book. The story was okay. I love the author but this wasn’t one of my favorite.

Read it

I really enjoyed this book. Brittainy knows how to write beautiful romances that carry characters through the tragedies and heartbreaks of life. This is a book about grief, guilt, and abiding love. It is a reminder that there can be HEAs after the most horrific storms. I didn’t love the male narrator, but the story was worth it

Love the characters, but….

Brittany Cherry is the absolute best. This book was not one of her best. The readers didn’t fit the characters and seemed to be rushing. The pacing of the book also seemed off. Some inconsequential scenes had such detail but the important scenes where generalized. The last 1/3 of the book seemed super rushed.
I want to listen the other 2 in the series, but it’s the same readers. Might but the book instead.
