The Mighty Storm (The Storm, #1) - Samantha Towle Wow, this was a long book. And while there were parts that dragged a little bit for me (which is why I can't rate it five stars), I can't think of anything that could be taken out for the story to have still been the same.

What a sweet story. Lots of angst. Lots of uncertainty. Lots of unresolved sexual tension for a while. We knew Tru and Jake would get together, but what would it ultimately take for that to happen? How patient would Jake have to be? I sort of wish Tru had broken up with Will before starting with Jake. And while I understood Jake's jealousy of what Will had with Tru, I felt like his reaction to Tru wanting to keep their new found/recently rekindled feelings for each other under wraps a little over the top. I understood why she was trying to protect Will. I was glad that ultimately (after a bit), Jake realized it as well and apologized.

Wow, they were hot and cold a lot. Sometimes their arguments seemed like they were worse than they should have been. Many times, because Jake was used to getting his way, he acted like such a child. But then he could be so sweet when he realized he was acting like a child and became contrite. And when they were good, they were really good. Tru even said that herself near the end.

I loved after the ending, when we got a peek into how Jake felt about their first reunion. It was really cute to see how nervous he was about seeing Tru for the first time in twelve years.

I tagged this one with minor editing issues. It might be more than minor, but less than serious. There were many instances where "too" should have been used, but "to" was, and other things kind of like that (words misused). And really funky punctuation that had my brain backtracking. But the story was really good.
