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.
Blown Away by Brenda Rothert was a story that defined the word “intense”. I succumbed to the emotions that each page brought until the very end. In fact, I started reading the book in the evening and stayed up until I hit the last page. The story line totally caught my attention. This was my first book read from Brenda’s collection, and I am an instant fan now. This is one story that I would watch in movie theaters.
Brenda brings us well developed characters for Drew and Aiden, as well as the storm chasing team. Drew is this strong courageous woman. She has always spent her life taking care of others. All other’s needs came before hers. Drew’s journey of self-discovery starts after a tragedy hits her and her fiancé, Colby. Her journey begins to follow the dream of a man who left her world torn to pieces. Aiden was Colby’s best friend. Their friendship was one built upon loyalty to the end. There was one secret though that Aiden never revealed to Colby, and it just might come back to haunt him. Aiden uses women to avoid his feelings. He is a brave man who will risk his life to save a complete stranger. As secondary characters, the storm chasing team bring readers laughter and moments of tears and heartbreak. I felt connected with everyone in the book. I laughed at the jokes, and held on during the times lives may have been at risk. These team members complemented Drew and Aiden’s characters all the way through the book.
Second chances are bittersweet, but for some they maybe a difficult feat. Can Drew realize her what she was meant to be? Will Aiden let go of the guilt and his past? Can storm chasing open a pathway to dreams? Read Blown Away, and you just might find those answers and more.I will add one more comment.
I recall one day listening to a CB Radio of storm chasers. I recall the heightened emotions and tears I felt at the destruction I was hearing. The same emotion was brought to my mind again when I read Blown Away. Brenda gives reader so much detail without the story line being too much drama. It was a perfect amount of emotions just to keep readers on the edge of their seat. I absolutely loved it. I am hoping she writes more like this.
I am hooked.On that note, folks, happy reading!!!.
