This definitely is a HFN story, it is clear about that from the beginning, but it seems it is just the start to something bigger that is a whole other book. Still not sure if I am intrigued enough to check that out or not

Storm is a rock guitarist who almost runs over Jessica as she is walking home on the road. He offers her a ride on his bike but she is leery of him. Turns out he's there to audition for her brother's band. As she gets to know him she loosens up.

I enjoyed this novella. I liked the characters. I could understand Jessica's trepidation. I plan on reading more by this author.

Jessica’s car breaks down about five miles from town. She starts walking, when she sees headlights and tries to hide. But an animal scares her, she stumbles into the road, and almost gets hit by a motorcycle. Storm is a sexy motorcycle rider and offers to take Jessica home but she is wary of him. He finally convinces her to let him give her a ride and then asks her out. She refuses until she sees him playing with her brother’s band.

I would give this story 10 stars if I could. It was well thought out, had strong characters and a solid steamy sessions. Stable, non-risk taking Jessica has her car break down on her on a desolate stretch of road miles from town. Her salvation comes in the form of tattooed biker man Storm. He convinces her to let him take her home and the wild ride begins. Though this is short enough to read in 1 sitting, it will stay with you much longer. I requested this ARC so I could provide and honest revie ...more

Omg, I couldn't put this hot little number down till the end. Only to find out its not the end. So, so sizzling and I really need a bad ass musician of my own.
As bad a Jessica's luck is. How lucky is she to find a guy like Storm. I want one and I'm going to keep looking after reading this book. Im not a spoiler so all I can say is its so incredible sexy that I couldn't stop reading till the very last words.

I read His To Possess a while ago and I loved it. Taken by Storm is a prequel to that story and it tells the story of Jessica and Storm. Storm literally came and took Jessica “by storm” like the title suggests. He drove by to rescue her when she was stranded on the side of the road and they eventually fell for one another. I love how he treated her and how he helped her release her “inner bad girl”. This story is hot, hot, hot just like everything else Opal Carew writes. I highly recommend this ...more

Read this in dirty boys of summer box set and was very disappointed. I now understand from the reviews below that this is a prequel to another book about them. I can only hope that book is better because I struggled to actually see what this story was about. I really felt like I had wasted my time reading it.

A hot little read that gets you interested and keeps you wanting more .... I can't wait to read more from this author ! definitely one of my favorites! the only down side was this book was too short so I highly recommend that when you get this one...get the next book or two in this series at the same time.... you will fly through these as they are intoxicating delicious reads!

even though this was a short read, this book was awesome! I love storm and can't wait to learn more about him. Jessica is a character I can definitely relate to and watching her own up to new things was great. I would definitely recommend this and I'm glad I won it in a contest.

Prequel to His to Possess.

Taken by Storm tells the story of how Jessica and Storm met... long before she met his brother and started working at the family firm.

A short read, that sets the scene for His to Possess which I highly recommend.

Would not recommend this book as a stand alone.
