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 of the best 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 just needed to see more of their story.

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

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...

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 friend

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

I was so freaking nervous while reading the continuation of Jake and Tru's story. There were a lot of bumps in the road in the first book so I had to brace myself here, knowing there will be a lot more. Sure enough, there were things that tested their strength and dedication to make their relationship work and all I did was rooting for their happily ever after.

Wethering the Storm was written from dual POVs, so we get to

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

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. S

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

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

Wethering the Storm is the conclusion to Jake and Tru's story. After what happened on the previous book, it was a crazy ride of complications which challenged their relationship, patience and understanding. Everything almost went down but their love for each other was strong and unbreakable they were able to overcome these hindrances.

The story continues from the last part of The Mighty Storm wherein Jake and Tru are officially (view spoiler). From UK, Tru moves to Los A

"You don't complete me, Tru. You make me who I am. You make me better."

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 ins

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.

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.

OH MY GOD I want to give Wethering the Storm 10**********

I have never cried so much reading a book like I did with WTS, reading Jake's POV, Jake and Stewart together the tears started coming and would not stop.

I found WTS a very romantic story and I loved the way Tru & Jake's relationship progressed throughout the story, I loved the way all of Jake's group took Tru in under their wings and I love Stewart.

Loved the dual POV's between Tru & Jake.

I feel like I have been waiting forever for this book. I was craving more Jake Wethers.

WTS starts off where TMS left off. Jake has Tru back and he is not going to mess it up again. He knows what it's like to love her, be inside her and be without her and one of those

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 read The Mighty Storm">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!!!

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.

Hey there is nothing more to say about Jake Wethers??


I have to say that I expected sooo much more from this book. It was wayyyyy too predictable and sweeet!!

Tru and Jake are a match made in heaven and when Tru was scared of the news she had, there was no doubt in my mind that things were going to turn out otherwise.

Maybe its just me but this book had kind of a Reckless feel to it?!

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.

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.
