Review: WETHERING THE STORM (The Storm #2) by Samantha Towle
Music journalist Tru Bennett has done the impossible: capture the heart of rock-star bad boy Jake Wethers. Now they’re busy planning a wedding and navigating their new life together in the US. Of course Tru misses London and her best friend, Simone, but living happily ever after with Jake in LA is going to be great…right?
Wrong. Even the bright California sun can’t whitewash the dark side of celebrity coupledom. Greedy music execs, merciless paparazzi, and Jake’s wild past are lurking around every corner. Making matters worse, Jake announces he doesn’t want kids, which just may be a deal breaker.
Tru loves Jake more than anything. But when a devastating crisis threatens to destroy everything they’ve fought for, the couple must face the hard truth: What if, this time, love is not enough?

Dawn’s Review 5+ Stars
Have you ever had one of those books that you want to read SO bad the moment it is published because you loved the one or ones before? But you also don’t want to read it because it means that the story ends? Well, that was Wethering the Storm for me. I held off, wanting to savor the moment when I could immerse myself back in Tru and Jake’s story and fall in love with them all over again. And I did. I fell hard! It was worth the wait, but the beauty of it is that I know I can now go back and re-read any time I want to!
It had been quite a while since I read The Mighty Storm, so I skimmed it for a refresher and I’m glad I did. I feel it helped get me caught back up. The beginning starts out so sweet and hot. I was waiting for the moment when life was going to take a turn and Tru and Jake would face more challenges. And they do hit, but through it all, there is a sense of abiding love and deep, deep passion between Tru and Jake that cannot be broken.
Then, dammit, Samantha Towle almost broke me. I was crying and thinking ‘oh, hell no, not this!’. After everything that Tru and Jake faced, this could not happen!! But through those moments of pain and fear, there was growth and development and love. I loved all the sweet, sexy moments between Tru and Jake.
Jake Wethers will be one of my all time book boyfriends and I simply loved this conclusion to his and Tru’s story. I thought I loved him in The Mighty Storm, but Wethering the Storm added even more depth to that! This is definitely a book and series that I would highly recommend!
