Can't wait to read more by Molly E. Lee!
Fun, witty, perfect story hook, great love story and good storyline! Something I have never read before, so it was new and exciting!
The book starts out with Blake -- a incoming college freshman just trying to get things set up in a new town along with her boyfriend Justin. Their relationship is volatile at best and even though they have been together since she was 13 it seems like they are growing apart. . . Justin is a very controlling presence in Blake's life and reading about how he threatens to harm himself if she leaves and guilt trips her into doing what he wants are difficult to read because its almost too realistic. I was constantly just screaming at Blake to just go. Fast forward 3 years and their relationship is stuck in the same place, Blake is now involved in higher meteorology classes and constantly chasing that adrenaline rush of seeing the storm.
The one person who understands that feeling is Dash Lexington -- a professional storm chaser and target of Blake's hero worship! Imagine her surprise when she finds herself sharing a class with the man himself. Their chemistry is crazy. . . Off the charts just crackling with electricity from their very first meeting and I love how Molly makes them so intense like they are 2 forces of nature much like the systems they spend so much time studying. Seperately, they are still forces to be reckoned with. . . But together they hit F5 status quickly! They start out with this easy friendship -- he's the complete opposite of Justin and actually helps Blake realize that the relationship she has with Justin is pretty one sided-- she gives up everything and never calls him on his BS just to avoid a blow up.
They begin spending more and more time together both alone and with his group of fellow chasers who are also in Blake's class as well. And the group dynamic is just as well written and choreographed as their personal camaraderie. The action really picks up during the middle of the book and we really see how conflicted Blake is and it all comes crashing in during the tumultuous conclusion. This story had me on the edge of my seat so many times and has become the new book on top of my must have a print copy immediately list. Molly E. Lee is an author to watch!
I was hooked right from the beginning. It’s storm season and we had a big storm and flooding the night before. Oh, I forgot to mention that I love storms. I do believe that my love for storms did make the story more enjoyable, but even if you are not a storm lover I think anyone who loves romance will enjoy this book.
Blake has been emotionally abused by her boyfriend, Justin, for so long that she doesn’t even realize that it’s not normal until a fellow student and storm lover shows her how a man should treat women. If you have never been in an abusive situation, the behavior in this book may seem over-the-top, but from my experience, the author was spot on. You’ll want to yell at your Kindle for her to leave him, for her to take no more, to wake up and realize what he’s doing. Hell, even though I rarely read a book about cheating I was all for it by chapter one. Chapter 1! Yes, he’s that bad. I have to say the book started off sad for me and I even shed a few tears.
“You’re so nice. To her . . . you’re so nice to her.” “How do you figure?” “Just a thing a girl can tell.” “A thing a girl can tell when she isn’t used to it,” he said, his voice growing softer.
I don’t want you to think that because I wanted to yell at Blake that she was one of those stereotypical women that will frustrate you throughout the whole book. She’s not like that at all. I only wanted better for her because I knew she deserved it and after years of abuse she was so lost as to who she was and what she deserved. My heart broke for her with each page knowing Blake’s thoughts showed the struggle she faced with her long time boyfriend and the hope that he’d change back into the boy she once knew and her new found life with friends.
I’m sure you’re wondering if there’s cheating because that may be something you don’t like or a trigger for you. Have no worries there’s not cheating.
Storms had always been a part of my life, always filled me when I was hollow, but now they were in my blood.
Now enter Dash. He was truly the hero as he became Blake’s friend. He was there for her with his friendship, not judging the situation, always willing to listen, and helped her see that the way Justin was treating her was not the way her life needed to be. Add on top of that Dash was sexy and totally loved her dog, Hail, he’s the perfect book boyfriend.
Dash never doubted me. The feeling was incredible but completely new. Justin had constantly told me I wouldn’t make it in this field because I didn’t have the instincts to handle myself under pressure.
The storm scenes were intense! The author did a great job of describing them in a way that was easy to imagine and not over complicate it. The writing drew me in from the beginning. I could feel Blake’s passion for storms and what she wanted to do with her life and the instant connection she had with Dash.
“Someone has to save you sometimes, since you’re constantly doing it for someone else.”
This is an amazing debut novel. If I didn’t know, I would never have been able to tell. I can’t wait to see what Molly E. Lee writes next and I definitely hope for more books about storm chasers.
