I received this in return for an honest review of CONTENT only.

WOW! This Book!!! I have read other books by Gracie, but this one is AMAZING!!! The writing and story line is so different, I asked myself “Is this the same person?” I literally could not put it down. I slipped in a word, sentence, or paragraph whenever possible.

Storm Corp follows the life of Alexis Storm. After the death of her parents, and then her brother, Alexis becomes CEO of her family b

Thrilling, Sexy, Heartbreaking

I am a huge Gracie Wilson fan for many reasons. She has a devoted Facebook Street Team (of which I am a proud member). She is so accessible and interactive in the group. When Determined & Derailed went live for purchase, I snapped it up, and I am not at all sorry...

Thrilling: The action in this book is constant. Our heroine Alexis "Lexi" Storm begins her story coming into her own as the CEO of her family owned business. She is making things happen, breaking out

My favorite books are those that can keep you on the edge of your seat right up to the end, wondering what will happen next. Determined & Derailed is one of them—a tantalizing, fast-paced plot, with neatly placed twists and turns. I found that the action is constant throughout the book, that there is never a dull moment. The book has an equal dose of suspense, drama, conflict, deception, and romance—the perfect ingredients for a grabbing read that will throw you on an emotional roller-coaste ...more

This is book 1 in the Storm Corp. If your looking for a five star beginning to what will be a equally rated series, this is it. This is one of those story lines and characters you don't want to miss. So unique and entertaining. It is full of drama, suspense, romance, heartbreak, etc.. All the themes and components to make a fun attention grabbing read. Name it --this one has it. Be prepared for an emotional roller coaster. Your heart will be ready to burst. I had a couple walk away moments. I wa ...more

This is a confusing book in the beginning. But if you can sort out the flashbacks and stick with it you won't be disappointed. It is a story of what one woman does with the grief life has dealt her. She now has a family business to run. Alexis is determined to do just that. This is her family legacy. All she has left. Well, Tory and Nolan are there for her. They will always be by her side.
When she starts to put the pieces together of the tragedies that have plagued her family, she strikes out

I read this book twice.
I had to. I had to make sure I didn't miss anything. Gracie did a fantastic job breathing life in to these characters. Something that she excelled in with the Lonely Girl as well.

Alexis storm has a multitude of issues, all stemming from her brother's disappearance. Throw in a love square and you have a recipe for success!

Gracie is the queen of love triangles! More grown up vibe vs the lonely girl series. Lexi has a lot of drama for a young adult, but handles herself well. The last word in the book is like OMG! Ready for the next book so I can know what the heck happens.

Gracie Wilson, Julia Bright: ‘Determined’, Storm Corp book 1.

As an ARC reader I received this book for free. And promised an honest review. Here it is. English isn’t my first language. Sorry for errors.

Rating: 4 stars (of 5).

In general: Complicated start of a CEO career.

Main characters:
- Alexis ‘Lexi’ Storm. CEO of Storm Corp., a firm dealing in the digital aspects of weapons. Now at the age of 21; her dad and mom died when she was 11 years old.

- Lucas Storm. Her older brother. Lexi’s guardian

This book read like a soap opera, there was so much drama happening. A lot of the supporting characters were one-note, particularly Nolan. I kept trying to justify Lexi's actions by reminding myself it's because of her age, but really, there are only so many things you can excuse. I mean really,  she says she won't trust anyone but the she trusts men she barely knows (ok, yes, she didn't trust Cohen with everything,  but it was pretty close). Because we knew so little about the three love intere ...more

Determined by Gracie Wilson was suspenseful. I did not like how the book started slow, picked up at the end, and then left you hanging. I would’ve given 4 stars but I did not like the cliffhanger introduced in the last chapter. I received an ARC for my honest review.

I loved this book. I stayed up way too late last night finishing this book, devouring the entire book in one sitting.

Alexis Storm inherits her family's company at the age of 19 after her parents died 3 years ago and her brother dies right near her birthday. After leaving the company in her brothers' best friends hands for a while, she decides to become more involved with the running of the company. This leads her into all kinds of problems and danger.

This is a well written novel that keeps you

Gracie Wilson is the queen of the love triangle, no wait is it a square, no what comes next in the number of sides!!! And you won't know who you are truly rooting for the girl to end up with until it is all said and done. Her storytelling is amazing and her characters come to life in a way that you simply cannot set her books down and this is no exception! You laugh, you cry... There is action, there is romance, there is intrigue. I can't wait for the next book in the series because I need to kn ...more

This is the second book I have read of Ms. Wilson's. She may have become one of my new favorite authors.

There are so many twists and turns and suspense in this book. Nolan, Jackson or Cohen. Three men love Lexie and she loves them as well but they all have secrets they have to keep in order to protect her and keep her alive. Who can Lexie trust? I sure hope there is a second book in this series as there are so many unanswered questions. Including a surprise at the end of the book that will blow

Gracie Wilson captures her audience in this amazing work of art. After a slow and somewhat jumbled start, Gracie leads her readers through a maze of webs that help tie together a masterpiece. I am anxiously awaiting her next stroke of genius.
