Did you ever read a book where you wanted to jump in the story and steal the hero? I just did.

I floved this man!

Unfortunately for me he was so deep in love with the heroine that he worshiped the ground she walked on, and he didn’t look at any OW (and I’m hot, have a killer body & stuff… just saying ;-)).

He didn’t even touch any OW after meeting the heroine.
Hot! Absolutely sexy!

I love men who acknowledge their feelings and don’t screw around.

Ah, and this man loved and respected his m

I feel like I've waited forever for this book. I was so ready for Kieran I preordered it and jumped on it as soon as it hit my iPad. I absolutely LOVED The Hurricane and The Aftermath. Cormac is the perfect hero. He is broody,, dark, possessive and INTENSE. Kieran is different. While he has some underlying sadness due to losing his da at an early age, (the prologue absolutely broke my heart), he is funny and lighter...not as INTENSE.

We know Kieran sees Marie for the first time in

3 - "Defy the odds." Stars.

The Storm is the first book that I have read by R. J. Prescott, although it heavily features characters from her previous two books The Hurricane and The Aftermath.

Although I would agree that this is a book that can easily be read as a standalone, there were certain characters and aspects of the book that happened without much explanation or real development to them, which I think may be attributed to it being dealt with in more depth in the previous books, Liam and Al
After reading Con and Em’s story I became obsessed with everyone in the previous book so of course I had to come and read this book about Kieran and Marie. I ended up loving these two, they’re so sweet with each other and I loved how they got very close without any drama involved!

Tommy and Kieran are so funny, I loved their banter.

I loved Danny and his temper, it was so funny at times but he loved his boys. The best part for me in this book should be Kieran and Irish (Marie) having a baby and it

This was a nice reading!

With a H.A.W.T cover!

I wanted Kieran's book since I read "The Hurricane" and I loved him so much! So he needed his own book. Marie was introduced to us at the first book as well but just a little bit towards the end.

This book was good and we got to learn about Kieran and Marie's story and their issues but also we got the chance to see once again the whole gang and the bond they still had. This book is about friends and family and how to protect and be there when

This book was hands down AMAZING! Kieran stole my heart from the very beginning, he was sweet, sexy and alpha and the love he had for Marie was beautiful! Marie was amazing, at first I thought she would push him away the whole book but that didn't happen. She was very up front with him and didn't try to hide anything. This book is 100% safe, no ow drama at all and the only om drama is a guy who likes her and turns into a stalker but he doesn't cause any relationship drama. We also get to see Con ...more

This book was just amazing. I m so glad that my friends told me about this author. The first books in this series was brilliant and I didn't think anyone could get better than Con but Kieran is just amazing and super sexy. God this guy just had everything he's sweet strong protective and caring plus more. I really couldn't get enough of him. I luv how close he is to his mum after his dad past away. He was really close to his dad so when he died he took it really hard. This j

2,5 really... but not 3...

This is the order you need to follow while reading these books:

1. The Hurricane (The Hurricane, #1)
2. The Aftermath (The Hurricane, #2)
3. The Storm

The first 2 books were 5 star reads for me (out of 4,5) but this book is a definitely 2,5 and I cannot even round it up to 3....

Let me say that I really love the group of people in this series. They share no blood but they are the closest family to each other. They are more than friends. They are all brothers and sisters to
I loved it. This is definitely becoming one of my all time favorite series. Kieran and Marie are amazing. I really got emotionally invested in them and just wanted to see them get their HEA. Kieran was the perfect alpha going after what he wanted and never giving up. He will definitely make you swoon. I instantly liked Marie. She is strong heroine yet still really sweet. Also I loved catching up with the rest of the gang from Driscoll's gym. Highly recommend this book and the whole series. Now I ...more

If it is even possible, I liked this one even more than the Hurricane!

Kieran Doherty stole my heart, but above anything else, I loved the interactions between the guys. It was hilarious and endearing.

Plus, it's always great to get a side-dish of your other favorite couple, Em and Con. On top of that, Liam and Albie's story tied a bow on top of this amazing book.

Now I can't want to read Tommy's instalment.

If I find a spare moment, I'll probably write a longer review :)

"Through the pain and noise, the heartache and chaos, she was my peace." Kieran

I read that the H was a manwhore in the previous books BUT the way he loves the h in this book wiped the slate clean for me. It was beautiful how he fought for his game changer (Marie). I love it when manwhores fall because they fall hard. And the friendship and family dynamics in this book is amazing.

Thank you Leonor and Alex for bringing this book to my attention. :)

I literally devoured this book this book!! I've read this in a day? Anyway, the thing is I started reading the Hurricane series, because of this book. Because I had been told I would relate to the female protagonist because we have something in common. I need to speak about it, but I'll probably do it in spoilers. Because I have some things to say on that matter. But I'm going to leave that for the end.

Kieran was a dreamy book boyfriend. He was the best I've read for months probably.
Loved this newest addition to this series. I adored Kier and Marie together, and even her pushing him away didn't bother me because not only did it not drag on for ages, but she really did have a legit reason for it. And I totally got it. However, our Kieran was not going to be pushed away, and I LOVE how he wore her down, broke through her defences and got his girl. He was totally swoon-worthy, and made my heart sigh so many times. He was so very focused not only on his girl, but his training, ...more

Ok I'm feeling petty so 😂

“Once he met her, it was and always would be Lyla.”

Do y'all remember that line from another book released recently??? Well THIS is how you write a book where that line applies!!!!!! From the MOMENT Kier met Marie it was ONLY her!!!! And always would be!!!!

Ok off my soapbox and on to the review

There wasn’t a morning that I didn’t wake up and wonder what a lucky son of a bitch I was that she chose me.

If I had a dollar for every time this line was used in this story I'd be rich.

Don’t ask me why I even bothered with this. No, actually I'll tell you. This dumbass book made me sit through all that after-school-special mediocrity that was Con "The Hurricane" and his slut-shaming twit of a heroine just to get to this. Same issues I had with the other 2 books happened he

Oh my gosh. My heart is SO FULL. And yes! Those are tears flowing from my eyes. Do I care? No. I don't, because, this book, The Storm was just beautiful. So heartwarming and breathtaking. Full of heat and emotion. It was just fantastic and fully deserving of 5 stars.

Wow another brilliant read by R.J Prescott what a rollercoaster.

I absolutely love the characters in this series. Danny oh boy! that old guy is brilliant he cracks me up.

My review ratings:
I gave this book 4.5 stars, although I thoroughly enjoyed it and enjoyed the plot, I felt it didn't have the same oomph, the same heart pounding effect on me as The Hurricane and Aftermath.

Kieran doesn't give off the bad boy vibe I love and the angst that comes with it that has the reade

I have been meaning to crack open The Storm ~ book 3 in the Hurricane series, finally!! I absolutely loved all of the characters in those first 2 books. A big band of Irish boxers, coaches, trainers, friends - I definitely found their group to be a favorite of mine.

I easily fell right back in with them, even though it had been a year and a half since finish the first 2 books. Kieran and Marie had great chemistry and the whole alpha, only have eyes for each other thing they had going on really w
Love me some Kieran!

Kieran and Marie's story was a very good read. I started crying from the prologue. Thank goodness the rest of the book wasn't that way. I love how strong Marie was and how determined Kieran was. All the secondary characters we knew from the previous books were there to help enhance the story.

I found this one by the lovely review of my dear friend Maddie

I enjoyed the previous ones a tid bit more, I don't really know why that is. Maybe because some things felt a bit rushed, but still I enjoyed it very much! Also it helped that Kieran was Irish! That accent is just so swoony!

Sometimes it’s hard to write a review, not because I didn’t like a book but because I loved it. I’m afraid of not doing justice to the beauty I found within those pages. This is one of those reviews. There was so much goodness found in The Storm, I didn’t know where to start.

I never get exactly what I was expecting from an RJ Prescott book. What I know for certain is that I'll get feels, lots and lots of deep feels, and more than a few smiles and laughs. Here I found a treasure of a book that wa

The Storm is the third book in the Hurricane series by R J Prescott. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an Hines review. I love the series and The Storm is a great addition.

True to form in the series, Kieran Doherty is uber alpha and uber sexy with tons of personality. He's a fighter in every sense of the word. Marie Kelly is beautiful, smart and sassy. A perfect match for Kieran.

I love that it didn't take a lot of drama for them to get together. There is drama but it's external fac

I was given a copy of this book by the New Adult Book Club and this is my voluntarily, honest review of it.

‘The storm’ is the third book in ‘The Hurricane’ series but I think that you can read this book without reading the first two books of the series but I really, really loved the story of Con and Em so I would recommend that you read their story too. The Hurricane series is focused around the Driscoll’s Gym. Danny is the owner of this boxing gym and Con, Kieran, L

Many readers have a place they call home in Book Town. Driscoll’s Gym is a place I call home. R.J. Prescott created a place where the characters are much more than just characters. They are a part of my life and it always brings a smile to my face to reunite with them. I have waited more than a year to reunite with this amazing crew and the author gave me a reunion that left me gasping for air! If you are not familiar with The Hurricane Series, you are seriously missing out!

Loved, LOVED this book and the characters Prescott has written. The friendships and banter are so funny and wonderful and heartfelt. ❤️ The romance is pretty perfect, don't get me wrong, but I think it was the friendship between the boys that made me give this five stars.

Did not realize this was a continuation of her other two books, but it can be read as a stand alone. Now it's time for me to go and read the first two, heh.
