Ooooh, this book was good! It almost made me wish for a flooding storm to hit me so a hot and wet hunk would come and rescue me... ;)

Jason Mauer is finally back home, in his brother Dustin's house in Santa Rey, CA, after years serving in the National Guard, and he doesn't quite know what he wants to do with his future. He could reinlist - and Uncle Sam would be more than happy to have him back - but he's just lost a friend during a rescue mission that's gone wrong and he's burned out with the mi
I always enjoy Jill Shalvis, even when the stories are over-the-top. And Storm Watch is over-the-top in several ways.

Jason is a Guardsman on leave while he mourns the death of a friend and tries to figure out what to do with his life. he returns home just as a hurricane strikes. Lizzy is a childhood friend who's always had a crush on Jason but was too shy to act on it. Now she's all grown up, more confident, and needing help. Lizzy's 9 months pregnant sister is somewhere in this storm and Lizzy
Another good one from Jill Shalvis! I'm a fan and none of her books have disappointed me.

Jason Mauer is home on leave from the National Guard. He specializes in search and rescue and is ready for some R&R. Unfortunately, he arrives home in Santa Rey, CA just in time for a huge storm.

Lizzy Mann is worried about her sister and needs some help from her friend Dustin and his SUV. She doesn't find Dustin, but she does find his brother Jason--her high school crush.

Jason insists on helping Lizzy
I have read a Jill Shalvis book before after winning it off this site. I loved her writing then and this was just as great. I got this at a book sale last month for the Friends Of The Library and I was so thankful for it because I wouldn't have found it otherwise.

Jason Mauer just got home from his latest tour of the National Guard which has him needing some rest and relaxation after a rough 8 months. In those 8 months he’d had it rough not really being emotionally involved with anything after l
Love Jill Shalvis, Love her writing, love her style; but I didn't love this. Really I just didn't love the h in this. As always, Ms. Shalvis' hero was yummy.

Current status: Homeward bound.

She's fiercely independent. But that doesn't keep them from having incredible sex as they, ah, ride out the storm!

Storm Watch is a category romance by Jill Shalvis I've had on my "to be read" pile for a while, together with a few others by this author. I've previously enjoyed a few of her categories and looked forward to reading this one.

This is the story of Jason and Lizzy who went through high school together and ten years later meet up again. It's the classic tale of the geeky smart girl who has a secret crush on the gorgeous jock who hurt her feelings. In the middle of a devastating storm Lizzy needs he
Storm Watch is about numerous events that happen over a 24 hour period during a hurricane that causes lots of damage to the town but ignites something seriously hot between National Guard, Jason Mauer and nurse Lizzy Mann.

Lizzy is desperate to get across town to maker sure her heavily pregnant sister is okay, she stumbles across Jason, the hottie who she had a major crush on in High School and who scorned her heart.

The last thing Jason expected when he came home from a nightmare of a mission wi
Fully expected to not finish this one when I saw the cover. And then I expected Jason to stumble into some woman who was living in his house for some reason.

Neither happened, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it's another Santa Rey-set novel. I did wish the timeline was longer, but overall not too bad.
Lizzy Mann never thought she would see the high school hottie that never noticed her again after high school, but during the storm of a lifetime she does and what she finds makes her want fall for him again, but she learned her lesson the last time...didn't she? Jason Mauer just got leave from the National Guard. After losing his best friend he just wants to sleep, but when Lizzy comes to his house during a huge storm soaking wet, he instantly wants to help. While searching for her pregnant sist ...more

I always enjoy Shalvis's work, though I find it a little distracting when some of the action doesn't seem plausible or there are gaps in explanations of how something that can take place (i.e. if you're going to climb into someone's lap while sitting in a Jeep, there's going to be an issue with the gear shift--I'd prefer a work-around be covered rather than ignore the whole thing). As always, there's a bit too much writing things off to unbridled passion to make the story move along, but that pa ...more
3.5 star

I wish there was more to it.
This book didn't have a very strong story line. The main characters were supposed to be going to check on Lizzie's sister who might be in labour and caught in the storm. Lizzie was allegedly very worried about her sister but spent more time in a love fest with Jason. I felt it took away the drama and tension and became unbelievable.

If you want to read a love story with a happy ending then this book is fine, if you prefer a stronger read with an edge this isn't it.

No one writes contemporary fiction better than Jill Shalvis!
I am a huge Jill Shalvis fan but unfortunately this book was a big fat disappointment for me. I just couldn't get over the fact they are in a severe storm, Lizzy is worried about her pregnant sister, they are nearly drowning and they STILL find time to make out at regular intervals....
I adore Shalvis' writing. This was a good story, though a bit on the short side. I wish we'd had more page time to fully explore the heroine and her issues. As it was, I enjoyed the story but wasn't as connected to the characters and I'd have liked.
I normally love Jill Shalivs, Even her short stories. This one just failed on so many levels. I think it was the (lets put a meaningful relationship in a 24 hour period.) Just annoying.

Still won't put me off the author
Barely 2 stars. Wooden characters, paper thin character development, too many secondary characters (even if it's only two). One redeeming thing, Jason is likable.
I loved this as I love all her books. She brings the people to life. This was short and fast, an easy read.
I enjoyed this read from beginning to end, I love a good Romance with much humor, and this was full of both.
Don't you just love when natural disasters (or disasters in general, really) bring people closer together?
this one was a re-read also!

This one had some serious steam! I loved the rescue scenes too!
Sadly predictable--but the flood danger and birthing a baby were interesting.
Cute quick read. Thoroughly predictable but I still enjoyed it.

LOVE a good story 'bout a man in (or out of) uniform!
