Jake and Tru are one of those couples that are truly meant to be. Their story is unforgettable. I’ll never forget reading TMS and the way it made me feel. When I heard we were getting more Jake and Tru in the form of this novella, I was ecstatic! Jake, Tru, the rest of the band… seriously, I couldn’t wait! Then I started reading, and I got a bit nervous. Jake and Tru’s life is as perfect for them as it can be. And the thought of it getting ripped apart hurt my heart.

HOLY FUCKING FUCK!!!!! What a fucking ride that was!

What the fuck can I say about this fucking book?!

Only that it fucking killed me but in a way that healed me so much.

I am a HUGE fan of this woman and these books.

They hold a very special place in my heart and I'm very protective of theses characters.

I remember I was visiting my friend from out of town and we was sitting on her sofa chatting away and I checked my Facebook and it was a video of Samantha Towle with some exciting news...

Not only Jake and Tru are one of my favorite book couples ever, the Mighty Storm series is also one of those that I keep re-reading over and over again because I just can’t let go.
When I’ve heard a novella about them were being released this month, this little book automatically became one of my best Christmas presents.
In this small, but completely packed of emotions, novella we’ll see Jake and Tru face adversity one more time, and once again making us remember why we fall in

I'm keeping this short and sweet, I ADORED the storm books, seriously unputadownable for me. Intense love stories hit me good, and Tru and Jakes story did just that. Before I go on just know that THERE IS NO CHEATING ok, this is not a story about going back in time, it's not about broken hearts and opening old wounds. But more so about healing old wounds in the best way possible. If your worried about having a story re-kindling the

I can’t say too much as you really need to experience this for yourself. If you’re a die-hard Jake Wethers fan, and you know who you are, you`ll LOVE this! Jake just gets better with age.

And Tru and Jake are stronger than ever and Jake`s love for her is just perfection!

"...the first, last and only woman I will ever love, Tru."

When I heard Samantha was giving us this gift, I was worried because I didn't want anything to mess with Tru and Jake. But I must say, this novella was needed

As soon as Samantha announced she was releasing The Storm I was all over wanting to read this one. However, I never anticipated all the feels wrapped up in such a little package!

Storm made me laugh, cry and fall even more in love with these characters. This is such a tough review to write without any spoilers and this is definitely a story you don’t want spoiled. I can tell you that while I never would have anticipated this read, after reading it I can’t imagine The Mighty Storm world without it

Keeping it short and sweet...It is Jake Whethers....enough said! Jake and Tru have been through it all and they have their HEA. This, for me, was an epilogue...a bump in the road that led to an even better future. I started thinking this was going to break my heart, and yes, while I did cry it was not over a perfect love harmed, but for the new discoveries from the past that brought the Mighty Storm full circle! Still one of my all time fave rock-star romance reads, now with just a little bit mo ...more

***3 Stars***

I'll get right to the point. Was this enjoyable? Yes(ish). Is this a story that needed to be told? No.

There's no way that I can talk about this novella without spoiling anything, so I'll split this quick review into two parts: no spoiler and spoiler.

No spoiler:

If you're wondering if Samantha Towle went in and messed up Jake and Tru's HEA, the simple answer is NO. Not even a little bit. She just further cemented that this couple is rock solid. They are capable of handling anythin

5***** The Storm was fantastic I loved catching up with Jake and Tru. Jake Wethers is my no1 Rock star so this was a bonus for me.

This was 50/50 for me 50% of it made me so happy I laughed when reading the family time with Jake, Tru and the kids so funny I love little Belle.

The other 50% broke my heart I cried, so heartbreaking what happened even though it so sad it brought a missing piece back into the band's life.

I don't know what it is about the lads from the Mighty Storm, but whenever Samantha Towle puts pen to paper and writes about her boys (whether it be Jake, Tom, Denny or Jonny ), she creates something special, something almost magical. There's this depth, this emotional attachment you can't help but feel right down to your very soul and there are not

Standing in the doorway, I watch her...the first, last and only woman I will ever love. Tru. And my heart fucking breaks at the sight. It breaks because I know I'm about to break hers.

So this is easy. My top book boyfriend who I'll love forever and ever for his naughtiness, his panty melting sexiness, his possessiveness, and his big heart is back with a little story in his POV - um yeah...I'm going to LOVE IT! For a quick minute, I was a bit worried th
Beatrice ~ Confessions of a Pinay Bookaholic
The final novella is written in Jake Wethers' point view and I finished it in one sitting. It's lovely to see all the characters in this series got their happy ending. Can we just talk about how adorable Belle is? I swear she's so cute and funny! I laughed so hard because of her. Lastly, that bonus chapter in the end shattered my heart. 😭💔 I'm going to miss these characters.

A beautiful novella about Tru and Jake Weathers, their life, their family, their extended family and a big surprise that takes everyone by surprise. A surprise that will shake their core and test their love and their commitment to one another.

It's told in Jake's POV and getting in his head and reading his thoughts is wonderful. If you are a fan of Jake and Tru, then this is a great "little extra" that Samantha Towle gave to her "Jake and Tru- True Fans". You will love minute of every word!!!

4 - "Hindsight - it's a motherfucker, ain't it?" Stars!

I am always a little sceptical when an author revisits a couple that we previously left living their happily ever after. I have no issue if a novella adds something to the overall series or story, but more and more recently a lot of these types of books seem to be financially motivated more than anything.

Sam has 'added value' to Jake and Tru's story, although to be honest this isn't a story that hugely focuses on them... To understand why, y

It's different from what I thought it would be . Does that even made sense? :) I was expecting a somewhat extended epilogue. But it was still a great read.And so a thought occured, I hope the children will have their own books. :Dxx

SO happy to read this gem of a story! I remembered why Jake and Tru and The Mighty Storm are among my favorite characters. Emotional, witty and sexy, The Storm is a must-read for fans of The Mighty Storm series.

I absolutely LOVE when my favorite characters are brought back for a little "something more." If done well, I can't get enough. And Samantha Towle has written a perfect novella that captures the essence of Jake, Tru and The Mighty Storm. There

Hace años que lei esta serie, pero cuando descubri esta pequeña novela no me pude resistir a leerla, al haber pasado tanto tiempo no recordaba demasiado de la historia de Tru y Jake, pero si me acuerdo de que me hizo pasar un rato entretenido.

Este libro es corto y se lee en nada de tiempo pero en algunas ocasiones pense que era bastante innecesario, no aporta nada a la historia, honestamente si lo lei es porque tenia tan pocas paginas que era ideal para este momento en el que me apetecia leer al

I'm not going to lie, I begged Samantha for this book early and then I forgot to even review it!! I'm sorry!
I also had to promise to not call Tom a dick again...sigh
It was worth it ;)

I love getting a peek into the future of one of my fav couples, Tru and Jake. It made me want to re-read all over again.

There was a bit of angst to this one but it was well done. I can handle angst when my couple isn't messed with.

Wow, whan an emotional read! I never knew a novell could have such depth, but since we are talking about Samantha's book, that shouldn't come off as a surprise.From the wonderful start to the bitter sad end, this book is an emotional roller coaster. And I loved it!!!

It all starts with Jake finding out a secret that could ruin everything he's worked so hard for. His family could be torn up and what's even worse, he could lose his blissful life with Tru. In times like those, the couple either make

This was a seriously fantastic way to end this series. Getting Jake's pov was so fun. He's in love with Tru and his whole life and it was beautiful to see how well everyone was doing. The twist was unexpected but added so much depth and meaning to the overall series. Honestly I just wanted more. I wished a few parts would have gone into more depth but for a novella this was exactly what The Mighty Storm needed. I applaud Samantha for staying true to the story line and the characters and bringing ...more

This was a truly enjoyable short read.
Jake and Tru with their three kids what a wonderful perfect family. When kids have their say in a story it brings it all to life more. So funny especially the Goldfish moment.
I liked getting the last moments from Johnny and getting to know Storm a bit.
Everything came together nicely.
This was one of those feel good books although a little sad it leaves a warm fuzzy feel and a smile on my face.
Really loved all these guys in all The Storm series.

For a novella, The Storm packed a huge punch! The emotions that Jake and his POV evoked from me brought happy and sad tears. The Storm is set in the future. Everything is going well for Jake and Tru. They're happily married with three children and each are still successful in their own right. When a phone call comes upon Jake, everything will change. Secrets will come out and all lives will be affected. It's a secret that Jake will have to deal with but with Tru always at his side, Jake

The Storm takes place several years after the end of Wethering the Storm. Jake and Tru have three kids, JJ, Billy and the adorable 3 years old Belle. Jake's life is perfect, his family is everything to him, his band is still going strong and he manages his own label. But then he receives a cal
