BLOWN AWAY by Brenda Rothert
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.
I was blown away by this book (haha get it)! This book takes you through such a roller coaster of emotions. Immediately your heart is ripped out and then stomped on and then a huge semi backs up all over it just to make sure you are utterly destroyed. Then comes along this amazing man with super glue and finds every last piece and puts you back together but somehow even better than before.
Drew has lived a hard life and had all of her dreams right at her finger tips when it was pulled away from here. Feeling completely lost without her other half; an amazing opportunity gets placed in her lap. She takes a huge leap and goes storm chasing with my fiances storm chasing group. The last thing she expected was to find the perfect man for her who would protect her, show her a whole new world and help her find her place in this world.
Aiden has had a crappy hand at life. He has experienced more loss than most people experience in their whole life. He’s different though. He doesn’t allow the tragedies to defeat him. Instead he finds a way to make sure nobody else feels the same pain he went through. This dude is seriously what heros are made of. If that doesn’t make you soon enough then the image of him definitely will. Plus who doesn’t want to play damsel in distress when you have a hottie with a body coming to the rescue! I’m completely off track now! Aiden has always been in love with Drew but it got there too late and had to watch his best friend make her his. The last thing he wanted was to spend weeks with the woman of his friends everywhere he turned and not being able to claim her. Love and fate have different plans though.
These two seriously were amazing. I love how well developed their characters were and you were really rooting for each of them. Plus you got too feel the adrenaline they were feeling as they were chasing storms. Ya’ll will seriously love this book!
