BLURB:

In a sensual, emotionally charged novel of love and loss, a tender affair gives two daring storm chasers the strength to overcome shattered dreams and the courage to build a future together.

Drew McGovern is living for two. Her fiancé, Colby, used to savor the feeling of a powerful gale, the rain pelting his face as the sky grew dark—until a shocking tragedy struck him down. Drew’s still grieving his death a year later when she bumps into some of his old storm chasing buddies. For reasons she can’t explain, she volunteers for the next tornado. But when she reconnects with Colby’s best friend, Aiden O’Neal, Drew gets a breath of fresh air that stirs the ashes of her broken heart.

Aiden doesn’t trust himself around Drew. He’s wanted this girl for a long time—long enough to remember the stab of jealousy he felt the first time he saw her in Colby’s arms, long enough to remember the tears that fell as they buried the man they each still miss. Now he’s trying his best to behave himself. But when the wind ruffles Drew’s hair and puts a sparkle in her eye, Aiden can’t resist the urge to hold her close. And when it comes to true love, he’s holding out hope that lightning strikes twice.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

My Review

Storm chasing never looked so good!

I love shows about Storm Chasing but have never read a book where the main characters were storm chasers, so this was a new one for me.

For the most part, I did enjoy this book. Aiden, although he tried to be a jerk, was, deep down, a good guy.

Drew….well, she was raised poor, worked a job that was not satisfying her needs, and loses her fiancé at a young age. Trying to find herself, she goes out on a chase with her fiance’s old team, which is also where Aiden is. Aiden has loved Drew for years, but thinks she’s too good for him.
I can’t imagine what it must be like for a young woman to lose something like Drew did, and figure out how to come back from that. So because of that, I will forgive her for the times I felt she was a little immature when dealing with Aiden. I can forgive Aiden for thinking he is good for one thing and one thing only, because he lost so much at a young age, he is just afraid to lose again.

These two dance around the subject of being together for about half the book, and at some points, Drew was almost….for the lack of better words, outright desperate. And Aiden, tried to be a jerk about his feelings, almost to the point where I wanted to punch him.
But in the end, all works out and they get an HEA I didn’t expect
