Blurb : Emily McCarthy is living in fear of a dark and dangerous past. A gifted mathematician, she is little more than a hollow, broken shell, trying desperately to make ends meet long enough to finish her degree. Through an unlikely friendship with the aging, cantankerous owner of an old boxing gym, Em is thrown into the path of the most dangerous man that she has ever met.Cormac “The Hurricane” O’Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the mis-fire. He’s never been knocked out before, but when he meets E he falls–hard. Unlike any other girl he’s ever met, she doesn’t want anything from him, but just being around her makes him want to be a better person. They are polar opposites who were never meant to find each other, but some things are just worth the figh
Review : YEAH – I just heard a rumor about the release date of “The Aftermath” by R.J. Prescott…. God I am happy if that is true… wait … what? This is supposed to be a review about “The Hurricane” you say ? … Yes, I KNOW THAT but it is essential to know that the next book is coming. BELIEVE ME!!!
This book blew my mind. That feeling started with the opening lines and did not end when the book did – so I do need to know when I will get more of this.Emily and O’Connell are such amazing characters. The author created them so well, that you can feel everything they are going through as a reader.
I just loved the opening … I found myself standing beside O’Connell and watching Emily and that is always a good sign if the first lines of a book already manage to take me there. I could feel the “family” they created and I am honest … I want to see some of the other characters get their HEA. I really do.
So many times I found myself laughing out loud in public ( well around here I am known for always running around with Kindle in my hands so the people are used to me laughing or crying in public by now)… Let me give you a hint …. It has something to do with a line about what friends should not do … (and yes I have already AGAIN a FAT smile in my face when writing this)
The dialogues in this book were so well written, deep, sad, funny and witty – well they were all they should be and more. This is one of the few occasions, when I did NOT cry reading but still I am left with the feeling real deep emotions.
The way the relationship developed between those two leading characters was unique for me. They felt they had so little to give but in a short time, they gave more than others do in a lifetime.
It’s a good reason to grab my brush and paint those stars I use golden – because just the simple ones won’t do the job
