I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I met him in a snowstorm...
We spent forty-eight hours trapped in the back of his pickup truck.
She literally crashed into my life...
The last thing I wanted was a relationship. Especially with a quirky chick who drove me insane. But something about her got under my skin, and into my heart.
And I had to have her.
All of her.
Falling in love in the back of a truck, just the two of us, was easy.
Dealing with psycho fans, jealous exes, and demons from the past....not so easy.
Loving Storm is a novella that gives an extended look into Storm and Evie's future. It is best read after reading Storm (and also Vandal, Lukas, and Talon, as those characters will have short cameos in this book).
I’m not new to Carian Cole but until last week I hadn’t started the Ashes and Embers series. It wouldn’t matter if I had read the series ages ago but I’ll say it was pretty great to go from reading Storm straight into Loving Storm. Carian Cole delivers an utterly charming, fun, sexy and heartfelt read in this is follow-up. You will want to have read Storm first though because
for one, Storm Valentine is a pretty amazing guy. But also because the events preceding are the launching point for this book. So stop here if you haven’!
Loving Storm catches us up with Ev and Storm a few months post their engagement. They are still madly in love and Storm really wants to put a wedding band next to her engagement ring. The story is told from both of their points of view so we really get inside Ev’s head and learn just what is holding her back. We also are exposed to Storms relentless charm and just how persuasive he can be.
Ev a complicated woman with a past that leaves her feeling incomplete. And Storms gets it. He’s so sweet and sensitive and he knows just how to remove the obstacles, to say the right thing to carry Ev through. We also learn about Storms troubled first marriage and learn just what drives his adoration of Ev. He truly believes she is his soul mate and believes strongly in the concept of fate bringing them together.
This was just one of those reads that left me feeling the warm fuzzies and I enjoyed the epilogue to no end! 5 stars for the splendid novella!
