Wethering The Storm lived up to my every expectation and was the perfect ending to Jake and Tru's story. It brought their journey full circle and ended on a beautiful note. Fans of TMS are in for a treat!

The first book, The Mighty Storm, was quite honestly one ofthebest rock star romances I have ever read. It made my heart race and gave all the right amounts of every possible emotion and by the end of it, I'd fallen so in love with Jake and Tru that I justneeded to see more of their story.

I just don't understand (rubs face in frustration)

what to say...
what to say...

not much...

It was sweet. Yep.
And well written. Yep.

But it was so damn predictable. Start, Middle & End.
and I was so bored.
*so bored*
Even with the frustrating immature parts at the start.
And yes, even with the copious amounts of sex.

For me, it was just another way too sugary sequel with an equally matching HEA ending that didn't feel different in any kind of way...
and I had no reactions to anything that happened

Jake Wethers and Trudy Bennett started out as neighbors and best friends as children. As they got a little older, Jake had to move and the two lost touch. In TMS they reconnected. Their relationship was tumultuous at best. After all the drama, stress, and ups & downs in TMS, Wethering the storm pick up immediately after TMS leaves off... Jake and Tru are finally able to be together. And they are happy. They have a beautiful love. I think a love that begins with a friends

The first book didn't work for me, but I sure did I enjoyed this one!
5 F*cking amazing storming Stars!!


So, this is me in the end of this book (and in the beginning… and some chapters in the middle):


Well, Jake it’s on one of the first places of my book-boyfriend list, so I’m probably biased writing this because, well, there’s Jake there so it’s all good to me.
Anyway, in this second installment we have Jake and Tru right after being engaged in the end of the first book and spending a vacation in a almost desert tropical island where everything is perfect.

This book emotes so many feelings in me....

It's beautiful to read about a love so exquisitely powerful.

If you’ve read The Mighty Storm then you will know and understand the depth of feelings and love Jake and Tru have for one another……for me, this second book celebrates these characters with beautiful words and emotions but it also gives us so much more. It gives a story of love, jealousy, sadness, friendship, grief, letting go and moving on from the past……....yes, from the start I could see

This is the second book in THE STORM series. This is the love story of gorgeous Jake Wethers and beautiful Tru Bennett. Just a recap for those of you who haven't read this story....Jake/Tru grew up together, but Jake moved away when he was 14 yrs old and they lost contact for another 12 long years. They meet up again when Tru had to interview Jake's band (The Mighty Storm) for a magazine. Tru was the moth drawn to the flame....the flame being Mr. Sexy

Ohhhhh hellll yessss. I'm trying to stay calm !!!!

After all the drama at the end of The Mighty Storm, Jake and Tru are together...and happy. They are trying to settle down and get accustomed to dealing with Jake's celebrity status and with Tru living in the States but nothing can ever be that simple.

Let me start off by saying that HOLY COW...Jake is sooo amazingly romantic!! I loved all the sweet things he did...of course, his answers to some things were way over the top. But hey, when you have millions of dollars, what's a measly thirty

4 MIGHTY fine stars!

To be honest, I enjoyed Wethering The Storm a bit more than it's predecessor, The Mighty Storm.

The reason I say I enjoyed it more is because the giant thorn in my side (a.k.a. Tru) was there but, this time, she managed to annoy me only for half the book rather than the entire length of it.

Now, how do I put this nicely ... I was never a fan of Tru's (that's a bit of an understatement but I am trying to be nice) so going into this book knowing she is still a big part of this st

Since I'm unbelievably late to this party, I'll make my review short and sweet.

This book was all about Jake for me. He tackled his past demons and mistakes with honesty, vulnerability and strength. And it was great seeing him grab onto and fight for the only thing he's ever wanted...a life with Tru. I really appreciated how honest they were with each other. Neither hid their insecuritie

~ Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning ~

For those of you who loved The Mighty Storm, hang on tight because I’m sure you’re going to love this next installment in the life that is Tru and Jake. Whilst it may not contain the heart thumping angst throughout that was so prevalent in TMS, there are scenes in Wethering The Storm that will leave you reeling and have you clutching your heart. I know they did mine.

I don't know whether to smile because it was so good, or cry because it's over.


Siiiggggh. I just love Jake so bloody much.

God. I don't even know what to say. Can I not just tell you I love Jake again, and leave it at that...? That's pretty much how I'm feeling right now...

Loved up. Deflated because I've finished. Heavy hearted. All warm and fuzzy inside. Sigh. Again.

Samantha Towle, for writing such a Perfectly Complete Story worthy of Much More than 5 stars.

The continuation of the love story of Jake Wethering and Trudy Bennett. WTS picks up right where The Mighty Storm ends. I absolutely loved the entire story. It is their story from beginning to end. Is it easy, is it simple, Hell No, it is a freaking rollercoaster ride to the 9th degree.

5 STARS!!!!

I actually finished Wethering the Storm a few days ago, for some reason I stopped myself posting a review straight after finishing the book. Initially, I think it is because my first reaction was disappointment, and when I feel that after reading a book, particularly by an author I love to pieces (and I have a HUGE soft spot for Sam Towle), I want to get my thoughts and reactions straight in my head first before sharing them with anyone else on the various internet platforms. As such

Its so annoying!!! TMS came out like a year ago and obviously I don't remember every detail of the book. So now I have to re-read that before reading this..
Its not like I have all the time in the world to re-read a book AGAIN just to get to its second one. Its like I am DYING to read this, but I have to wait because I have to re-read TMS
I mean c'mon authors

Exactly one year ago I was searching through my iBooks store looking for a pick me up book after countless failed attempts to get me over my FSOG high. So I figured I'd take a chance and bought The Mighty Storm, and boy did it change my life. I fell in love with all that was TMS, I fell in love with Jake and Tru's story so much so that it has forever cemented it's spot as one of my all time favourite books.

Which brings us to here and now. Wethering the Storm.

My Jake


This book picks up where

I loved LOVED The Mighty Storm. I loved Jake and Tru and their story.

Wethering the Storm was:

- Sex
- Very little story. Anything situation that arouse was quickly solved.
- Very predictable story to the very end.
- Very little angst until you got to about 76% and that type of angst has been used so many times.

It was disappointing.

It was the story that everyone will fall in love with.

It was all about the unconditional love of Jake and Tru. In book 1, their relationship went through ups and down. They hurt and love each other. Their love story continue in this book. They proved and showed how strong their love. Jake win my heart big time. Though he was tame here,still you will fall in love head over heels to him.

There is no one else for me. I begin and end with you

I read The Mighty Storm back in October {my review}, and I can easily say it is one of my favorite Rock Star books ever, and in fact, one of my favorite books of 2012. It ended well, and frankly, the story could have ended there (not that I wanted it to). Knowing there would be more Jake Wethers? I couldn't wait!!! But I have read a lot of rock star books since then, and I wanted to make sure I had Jake and Tru fresh in

When I received a review copy from the publisher in May, my expectations were already high as I loved TMS. If it's possible this is even better and I am more in love with Jake Wethers than before! It has the right amount of angst, heartache, humor and steam!!! Full review to follow upon release. My favorite read so far for 2013!
