Editorial Reviews


"Enjoyable and sweet, and just a touch of angst. Good writing, good story, sweet girl, and FREAKING AWESOME guy."―Maryse's Book Blog

"Cormac O'Connell had my heart at first punch in The Hurricane, and he completely owned it in The Aftermath. It was such a pleasure to watch this fiercely protective alpha transform as he took on the new roles of husband and professional boxer in this beautifully written follow-up novel."
L.B. Simmons, USA Today bestselling author

"A refreshing addition to the fighter romance genre. A realistic and beautiful journey of two people beating the odds to achieve their happily ever after. I'm looking forward to much more from this author."
Harper Sloan, New York Times bestselling author

"Boxing and romance easily go hand-in-hand. Prescott delivers a knockout with The Aftermath."
Heidi McLaughlin, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author on The Aftermath

"Sexy, exciting, and packed full of emotions. Prescott delivers another hard-hitting novel that'll leave you breathless for more. Cormac "the Hurricane" O'Connell can fight in my corner any day."
L.P. Dover, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

"A gem of a debut novel by RJ Prescott that speaks of incredible storytelling to come. I can hardly wait."
J.L. Mac, USA Today bestselling author

About the Author

R.J. Prescott was born in Cardiff, South Wales and studied law at the University of Bristol, England. Four weeks before graduation she fell in love, and stayed. Ten years later she convinced her crazy, wonderful fire fighter husband to move back to Cardiff where they now live with their two equally crazy sons. Juggling work, writing and family doesn't leave a lot of time, but curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a bar of chocolate for family movie night is definitely the best part of R.J. Prescott's week. "The Hurricane" is her debut New Adult Novel. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Wow! I actually had never heard of this author & when I purchased there was only one review but something about the cover & synopsis drew me in...and I'm SO glad I took a chance on it. I've been in such a book slump, not liking the books I've read lately & just going back & re-reading old favorites. I just couldn't put this book down! The story isn't groundbreaking....we've all read books with similar plots....fighter falls head over heels for emotionally unavailable girl who's running from a nasty past....but somehow this book felt different & fresh. The hero & heroine were written perfectly....no whiny heroine or cocky manwhore "everyone worship me" hero. O'Connell had insecurities & a vulnerability that made him seem so sweet & Emily survived & escaped horrific abuse by her step-father that made it almost impossible for her to make friends or really even talk to people. But the two of them together....it just worked. The secondary characters were great....sometimes authors will throw in secondary characters as filler but we actually get to know & love all the secondary characters in this book. Their courtship is fast but it's not instalove really (if you know me or have read any if my reviews, you know how much I HATE instalove)....it feels like a slow build & Con & Em are friends for a little while before jumping into anything else. There is no cheating, no constant break up & make ups, no bitchy ex causing major problems (there IS a girl he rejected who has words with Emily but she doesn't cause huge problems) no stupid misunderstandings to keep the couple apart...in other words, none of the usual dreaded & unnecessary drama that some authors use to stir things up & shake up the main couple.....I'm SO over all those story lines. This is just a really great book, a definite 5 stars & I know you will love it as much as I did.

When a person reads so much like I do, that the books tend to get all mixed up in their heads..it’s just frustrating. I find myself looking for books that stand out..that grab me and that keep me in their clutches so that when it ends I am breathless and can’t stop thinking about them. I can honestly say that having read thousands of books that there are only a small amount that really affected me like this. This book The Hurricane is on a very short list of those books that have totally swept me away and kept me there.
The Hurricane…and well like the storm it’s named after this book left my heart in utter shambles. It’s come into my mind and wreaked havoc. I read this book luckily months before release and haven’t had one day that has gone by since that I’ve not thought about O’Connell and Emily. But not just this amazing couple. I’ve also thought so much about this family that Ms. Prescott created. Characters that I want to visit again and stories that can't wait to be told. So to start off this ranting raving review..I first want to say a huge

to R. J. Prescott for writing a story that will stay with me forever.

When I saw the cover and blurb of this story I had this extreme urge and wanted it like right now! I wanted disclaimers like immediately because I avoid stories with cheating and sex outside the main couple. Ms. Prescott set my mind at ease and I was excited to dive right in. These characters Emily and O'Connell completely captivated me. The way they built first a friendship to falling head over heels in love made me cry and swoon so many times.

0'Connell was huge..in body and spirit and I loved him from the beginning.
From the moment that Con ..said these words.

If you need time, then I’ll give you time.

“I felt like I’d been in the path of a hurricane from the day I met him. Only this one wasn’t tearing me apart. He was making me whole again.”

Emily McCarthy abides by two rules in her life. Keep your head down. And by no means, make any sort of contact or involvement with anyone.

She lives a meager life, running from a haunted past, paying her way through school while living in a small apartment and just trying to make it by.

“I didn’t need a white knight to swoop in and save me from my crappy life. I was just fine saving myself.”

Cormac "Con" “O’Connell” is all you could want in a male heroine. He is tall, handsome, Irish ♧, tatted, and the ultimate sweetheart and alpha male! He is an aspiring fighter on the rise and will do anything to protect what’s important to him and what’s his--Emily.

When Emily and O’Connell meet, it’s merely poetic. They’re so in tune with each other and it’s wonderful to see everything play out even if, at first, Emily is reluctant to pursue anything with O’Connell at all.

“Each time you let down another one of those barriers, I know that you’re a bit closer to being mine. One day, when the last one falls, you’ll be as much mine as I am yours.”

From uncanny friends. To lovers.

It is all worth the struggle, and completely worth the fight, as this troubled duo are put to the ultimate test that will test their entire beings and relationship!

Will Emily let down her guard and let O’Connell in? Will she finally be able to put her skeletons to rest and allow herself to be free? Can O’Connell rise above his own obscurities and save the girl of his dreams from her own destructive past? And his own?
