About the Author

USA Today bestselling author of TAKEN and its sequel, No Take Backs: A Taken Novella, Kelli Maine watches entirely too much reality T.V., which led to her compulsion to write dramatic romance novels. Blessed with a unique ability to bond with difficult people, she's convinced she could win Big Brother. Her deathly fear of heights would keep her from completing half of the detours on The Amazing Race, and she's shocked nobody has ever penned The Survivor Diet Plan: Eat one cup of rice for thirty-nine days and lose fifty pounds!

Taken by Storm is a second chance love story between childhood sweethearts MJ and Maddie. It is the second book in the Give & Take series but can be read alone. I did not read book one, and I enjoyed it as a standalone. However, it would most likely add to the storyline if you understood Merrick, MJ's father and his story from book one better.

Maddie left MJ a year before the beginning of the story without any explanation. MJ was devastated, and his life has been filled with drunkenness and fighting. He feels betrayed by the one and only person he ever fully trusted.

But Maddie had her reasons for leaving MJ, and it wasn't because she didn't want to be with him. She loves him, but she was blackmailed into staying away by MJ's evil grandfather for reasons we do not find out until later in the book.

MJ has no family besides his grandfather, who is a manipulative, greedy, mean old man. His mother is deceased, and his father doesn't even know he exists. He has spent the majority of his childhood away at boarding schools. But whenever he came home he would spend all his time with Maddie; they essentially grew up together. They were best friends and confidents until he turned 18, then they became more... But only a few months later, she left him and moved away without giving him a reason.

I really liked their story, and they had a lot of chemistry.

This is the first Kelli Maine book that I have read. I was impressed with the way this book was written. I have had retention issues in the past and was not able to sit down with this book for any extended periods of time. I found that the character and plot development was done in such a way that I remembered nearly every detail. I was also concerned because I hadn't read any of the Give and Take books, but this book could easily be a stand alone. I will definately be going back to read the others. The book centers around MJ and Maddie's friendship/relationship. They grew up together and were best friends. Maddie was forced to leave by MJ's grandfather after she discovered a family secret and have no further contact with MJ with a threat that something would happen to her father if she did not comply. MJ lost the love of his life without so much as a goodbye and becomes angry and destructive - both to himself and others. When Maddie comes home (out of the blue) to contemplate a major life decision, MJ doesn't know what to do with himself and attempts to walk away from Maddie but force her to come after him. There is a constant push/pull between these 2, and the strength of their emotions is clearly evident. I was pulling for their relationship to succeed and for love to prevail in the end. The big secret is eventually revealed by another party, and MJ's world as he knows it has been a total lie. Despite the fact that Maddie never told him, she is the only one he has to lean on and is able to calm his fears and tension with dealing with his new life. While there is an HEA, I suspect that there will probably be more to their story in a subsequent book. I look forward to it and would recommend this book and author to my friends.

When I read Taken last year, it was unique and definitely intrigued me. Then, I read No Take Backs, which is a short novella between books one and two. I absolutely loved No Take Backs and it left me anxious to see what would happen with MJ and Merrick. I enjoyed Taken by Storm, but I think to fully appreciate it, you need to look at the big picture of the series.

When I first met MJ, I wasn't quite sure what to think. He's been 'hidden' his whole life and he's just learned some major life altering news. I felt that he came across as he should. He's angry, a bit confrontational, and definitely confused. He had always assumed his father wanted nothing to do with him. To make matters worse, his first love and best friend returns to town, making MJ feel even more angry and conflicted. Only...Maddie also has her own issues she's trying to work through.

Maddie has known MJ pretty much his whole life. They played together as kids and eventually started a relationship. After Maddie graduated from college she returned home to give their relationship a fair chance, but her plans quickly changed. MJ was left with no answers and a broken heart. Now, Maddie doesn't want to let MJ go. I really felt for Maddie. She carries with her secrets about MJ and her reasons for leaving him behind. It was a lot of pressure on her shoulders.

Watching Maddie and MJ go back and forth was often frustrating. I wanted Maddie to tell MJ her secrets so bad. Despite the frustrating moments, there were some really sweet moments between them too. We get to see what their friendship was like and we still see Maddie standing by MJ's side while he goes through this new life change with Merrick. Oh...and there was some serious sexual tension.
