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

The Mighty Storm

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


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?


4 out of 5 stars


This book was crazy good! It was intense and drama filled, emotional and sexy. I couldn't stop reading. 

Jake and Tru were a trip. I liked them and they drove me batty but in this I can't look away, I'm totally rooting for them kind of way. They had this intense relationship, with insane chemistry that they fought for a while but then it exploded. So many ups and downs filled with so much angst and tension I thought I might combust. I enjoyed the details and the build though some parts were a bit drawn out for me.


I enjoyed the overall story even though the fact that Tru had a boyfriend completely stressed me out. I'm not a fan of love triangles but somehow I got on board with this one even though I held my breath as everything played out. It was so good. I pretty much loved Jake even though there were times I wanted to yell at him, the man had some serious demons. Jake was so sweet and romantic, there were quite a few swoon worthy moments. I liked Tru a lot… most of the time. Other times she made me kind of crazy with the back and forth of what she wanted. I understood her struggle though so by the end I was happy with how everything played out.


Decent pace. The writing was really good. Sometimes it did feel a bit basic and other times my eyes were flying across the pages because I was so into it. Overall totally good. I couldn't put it down. It made me anxious and teary eyed. I was completely wrapped up in it.


Bring on the next book, Wethering the Storm. I need more Jake! Love him!
