Review: The Mighty Storm (The Storm #1) by Samantha Towle

The Mighty Storm

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?


5 star review!

If there was any possible way to ‘over-fangirl’ then I definitely did it while reading this book!

“I wear my scars they don’t wear me.”

Tru is a music journalist and Jake is the lead singer of The Mighty Storm. As children, they were best friends, but they haven’t seen each other in 12 years. For her job, Tru has to interview Jake and this is just the start of their rekindled friendship. The coincidence of them coming together again has everything to do with the meddling of Tru’s boss.. you’ve got to love Vicki!

“Seeing you again was better than I ever thought it could be.”

Unexpectedly, Tru is then offered the opportunity of a lifetime from Jake by writing a biography on the band. This means that Tru is expected to go on tour with the band to cover their European and American shows.

“It’s always been you, Tru. Always.”

For the past two years, Tru has been dating Will and we can all guess what is going to happen when you put her and Jake back together again after all this time. It doesn’t help that she is still in love with him. They are meant to be together but I do not condone the way that Tru allowed their relationship to start, as it lead to me being frustrated and wanting to punch Tru in the face for betraying Will. (I also do not condone physical violence – though thinking it is a different story!)

“You won’t ever lose me. I promise.”

I love how this book dealt with the issues of infidelity and drug use. It opened my eyes to the reasons why people do it, as well as the consequences that result from these actions, not just personally but for those that are also affected by these situations.

“I hesitated. You can’t hesitate with a man like Jake.”

Of course the book ends happily, but with a sequel, it can only mean more drama and turmoil for Tru and Jake’s relationship.
