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?

Review also posted on Goodreads

The Mighty Storm was recommended to me by my book girlfriends. Thank you ladies 😘💕for recommending this book to me ages ago! Their raves piqued my curiosity and finally dived into my first Samantha Towle novel.

Music journalist Trudy Bennett crossed paths again with her childhood best friend and lead vocalist of a famous rock band The Mighty Storm, Jake Wethers as she gets a chance to exclusively interview him for the Etiquette Magazine (the company Trudy works for). They haven’t seen each other for twelve years since he migrated to United States. She’s been in love with him for a longtime but at some point they lost their communication. Now that he returns in her life, the chemistry between them intensified.

What a roller coaster of events between Tru and Jake. It’s full of angst, tension and scorching hot romance. There are several moments I’m frustrated with Tru for all her wrong decisions and I want to shake her so badly. If only she’s been honest with *highlight to view spoiler*Will, who’s her current boyfriend. I know she doesn’t love him as much as Jake, I think she should have break up with him earlier before she had an affair with Jake. It’s horrible and I feel so bad for him. He’s a good man and he deserves better. *cries* *end of spoiler* . In fairness to her, she apologized *highlight to view spoiler* even it’s too late *end of spoiler* and clear things up.

As for Jake, there was more to his bad boy rock star image.He had high and low points in his life. Grieving for his abusive father, drug addiction, partying and women, it came to a point of self-destruction. His declaration of love with Trudy through his actions were swoon worthy. He’s an alpha guy who gets what he wants. He’s attentive, thoughtful and very sweet to Tru. The romance between them was intimate and passionate. They are just meant to be.

It’s a great entertaining book and I enjoyed the drama. I’m looking forward to read the sequel and follow Jake and Tru’s journey. I have a strong feeling I’ll love it more than this book.
