I have finished both Safe in His Storm and Taken by Storm, and have given virtually the same review for both as they are one story in two parts.
It’s a shame these are in two volumes in one way, as I fear most will read the first and not go onto the second through possibly seeing it as a cliffhanger, mild though it is. But then, would they buy a book with so many pages, and probably a high price to go with it...this is the catch 22 scenario of many writers. So series are born, but I would always

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Taken by Storm by Annalise Delaney is book Two in The Perfect Storm Duet. This continues the story of Gabrielle Adams and Jake Thornton. The first book 'Safe in His Storm' should really be read before this book. This book picks up just a few short weeks from where the last one left us. Gabi is still trying to deal with her flash back from her awful past and how it is hurting her still to this day. Gabi felt she had to leave Jake because of his BDSM lifestyle might be what is triggering her memor ...more

This is only the second book by Annalise Delaney I have read but I can truly say she is quickly becoming one of my go to authors. Her story was well written and well edited. Yes this is a BDSM story so if that isn't your type of story you won't want this one. Please read Safe in His Storm first that way you will get the whole story. I don't do spoilers, but I really think you will enjoy these books. This is an awesome book!!!!

Wow book number 2 was just wow!! This book sees Gabrielle trying to get herself together after running off and Jake trying to figure out how to win her back. When there’s a threat the team band together to make sure everyone stays safe... while keeping Gabrielle safe Jake also uses the time to teach her about what BDSM is all about and help her to open up about her past to try and uncover what her triggers are. This was wonderfully written story, it was a very honest and respectful look into the ...more

Taken By Storm is the second book in The Perfect Storm duet.  This book picks up where Safe In His Storm left off.  Gabrielle and Jake are still apart and Gabi is miserable.  What has she done?  The flash back was a bad one and Gabi felt she had no choice but to end things with the all so sexy Dom, Jake.  But Jake is not giving up on his arrangement with Gabi.  She has touched his protective side and he will have her again.



In this book we get to follow along on Gabi and Jake's journey to heal

Taken by Storm is the second in The Perfect Storm duet. The books need to be read in order to truly be enjoyed and understood.

Taken by Storm picks up shortly after the ending of Safe in His Storm with Gabi unfortunately feeling anything but safe. Battling a faceless tormentor from her past, she's running from her submissive nature as she believes the lifestyle might be triggering her nightmares. Jake sees her true submissive nature and how much she thrives under the control but is forced

Oh my heavens, what a shocker...what a stunner...what a BOOK! I really enjoyed the first book in this duet and it left me hanging, so the moment this book hit my kindle I jumped right in and I was immediately hooked. It was full of feels that left my heart in tatters at first and then somehow, my heart was mended together in the most amazing way. This story was FANTASTIC!

I really loved these characters and their dynamic. They fit and yes, they had some problems but my goodness the way things got

Confession time (again).  I didn't realise that this was the second part of a duet when I signed up to review.  And you know what?  I'm glad.  I know that might seem odd.  But I think that had I read the first book when it first came out, I wouldn't have been happy about waiting for the conclusion.  Yes, I enjoyed it that much.

Obviously, if you read the first book, your enjoyment of this will no doubt be enhanced, so I would encourage you to do so.  That aside, I really felt embedded within this

Great Book!

I loved the finish to Jake and Gabi’s story. Gabi is convinced that D/s and kink caused her flashback and wants to try a vanilla relationship. Jake agrees to 2 weeks but with stipulations and both are beyond frustrated. Threats on Derek’s life and the murder of his and Luc’s sister cause them all to be housed under guard at Derek’s mansion. I loved how Jake took care of helping Gabi heal through positive thoughts and empowering her. I am so looking forward to the next book in this ser

I loved this book. I loved the characters and the chemistry that was clearly evident in their story. There is humor, sadness, love and acceptance. Annalise Delaney is going to be a One-Click author from now on. I can't wait to see what is next.

4.5* Jake wasn't going to give up on Gabrielle. He knew what they had and didn't want to lose it but he had to make her see what she was giving up. He still preferred to think that it was just an arrangement and I wanted to smack him upside his head.

While getting Gabrielle the help she needed would she be able to open to Jake? Make him understand what happened? When they come up with a plan, Gabrielle finds out she should have been careful for what she wished for because it wasn't what she reall

The conclusion to The Perfect Storm Duet. Annalise takes her characters even more in depth into the life they want to forget. FInd out what makes Gabi fearful and see her come out on the other side a stronger, brighter, more vibrant human being. And learn more about the man who helps guide her. He has as much growing to do as she does.

This was another big book but I liked it better than the first one! Gabi showed a little more personality and backbone and the story moved at a better pace. I look forward to Josie and Derek's book, I see potential fireworks and butting heads there!

Second book in this series. And hold on to your kindle because this one is just as gripping as the first. This one starts with Gabrielle and Jake being apart. She believes that the kinky part of their relationship is causing her flashbacks and that is scaring her. But Jake wont give up so easily on her. Jake starts to make her realize that she is more important than her past and they do their relationship a little different but is it going to be enough for either one of them?

Let me start with saying how much I love this series! Jake and Gabrielle will weave themselves into your heart. This takes up with Gabrielle unsure of if she should be with Jake or not. As you read, you can feel her emotions as she struggles with how to get past her memories of what happened to her. And Jake wants nothing more than to help her battle her past, but Gabrielle is hesitant. As Jake embarks on showing her how they could have a D/s relationship, she still feels she’s a bit vanilla.

This is the intense and emotional conclusion to Gabi and Jake's story. These book were amazing!! I loved Gabi and Jake so much! The storyline is very compelling and keeps you fully engaged as you root for this couple to overcome everything to get that HEA. Beatuiful, emotional, dramatic, painful and steamy, You will get all the feels as this heart melting and swoon worthy romance sends your own emotions on a roller coaster ride. This is my voluntary, truthful review.

I love the way that Annalise creates characters that feel like friends and family. This book finishes the story of Jake and Gabi and brings them to their HFN. If you were left hanging or disappointed after the first book, this sequel will answer all of your questions. If you've fallen in love with Derek (like I have) you'll want to read the teaser at the back. His book is on the way.

This is the second and concluding part of this duet. Fair warning this is definitely not a standalone, and need to be read in order. Jack and Gabi’s story continues with more twists and danger. This is a well written flawless story which is the perfect conclusion to this duet. I was captivated throughout this addictive page turner, and I look forward to reading more from this talented author.

I Love this Perfect Storm Duet, The way that Annalise has written these two connecting books its amazing.

Gabi is trying to overcome her past and Jake is still helping her to do that, its devastatingly beautiful.

I need to add these to my paperback collection

Im hoping we have a story about Derek

Book 2, wow just wow.

I have spent 2 days reading nonstop this 2 book series. (First time reading this author , suggested by a closed book club). It was a great read. The story is powerful. It shows you what it's like going into a D/S relationship. The story does have a story line and is broken into 2 long parts. You won't get a cliffhanger feeling, but you will get a book hangover of emotions. You could easily feel the emotions of each character. It's a series that I could reread over and over.

Annalise was a new author for me when I had the pleasure of reading the first book Safe in His Storm. I so enjoyed the way she pulled me into the story.

It picks up and flows straight from the first book almost as if you didn't stop at all. The story had layers to it and as each on peeled back, it left you more intrigued. There were a few moments of Oh my Damn the turns and twists.

Jake and Gabby so much aw factor, bad experiences then better experiences and time to heal and growl. Oh and yeah m

Annalise is an indie author writing contemporary romance with an erotic edge. Her romance novels are packed with twists and turns, emotional tugs of war, and a plethora of unapologetically dominant men and the women they crave... All tied together with a good dose of suspense, and some deliciously, sinful sex. ;)

Writing sassy stories that kiss and tell...
