Love can be blinding and by the time the truth shines through, it’s too late to escape.


Is that too much to ask?

All I need is to catch a break. To snag the attention of someone important. Someone who can help make my career everything I want it to be.

Joseph was that man. Until the night the lights went out and I left with someone else. Someone who stole

Before I started to write this review, I had to get my thoughts together and pick my bottom jaw off the floor. OMG!!!! This story is so much different than what I am used to by this author!! I am in complete shock and awe!!!

The characters are incredible. I really enjoyed reading about Amelia and Johnathan's story. Amelia had me addicted from the very first page of the story. I really felt a connection with Amelia. Her feelings just poured right off each page as I continued to read.

Such a great book. Jonathan is such a sheep in wolves clothing. You never know weather to love him or hate him. Amelia is country gullible but so easy to fall in love with. This book keeps you in suspense waiting for the next shoe to drop. I CAN'T WAIT for the next book..all I can say is more please!! Rachael Brownell you are the bomb!!

This book is so good so far! It's different than all her other books, and that might be why it's so good to read! The characters are fascinating and you really get drawn into the story and their lives. It's an all around good read. I can't wait for the official full release of the book! It can't come soon enough!

I've read Caught in the Storm in one sit.
Rachael Brownell words trapped me in this world made of charming wolfish men,a good country woman,a lot of secrets and suspense.

I was really invested in Amelia and Johnathan's story, I can't turn the pages fast enough to know them more and to unveil the thruth.
That cliffhanger at the end almost killed me...I think I'll wait with bated breath till the next book.

Way to go Rachael! You definitely caught me off guard with this one, from ridiculously steamy scenes to that ending sneaking up on you...I didn't want to stop reading. This felt like such a teaser and your characters really have me interested in knowing more.

Caught in the Storm is unlike any other book I have read lately. It’s addictive and intense. It will leave you craving answers. There’s deception, lies and so many untold secrets that you won’t even know who to trust. Amelia starts as a woman who is independent and fierce. She takes what she wants no matter the cost. That is until Jonathan sets his sights on her. He will charm her and woo her until she has no choice but to follow his every command. There are parts in that you won’t see coming or ...more

OMG I can't even write a review. Jonathan makes me want to throat punch him. Amelia very sweet but my heart breaks for her. This book was good and at one part my heart broke for Amelia. Then the ending happened and I will say it ends on a cliffhanger you don't see coming, but man that was a good book.

Wow, just wow. Rachael blew this one out of the water. We were warned it was not her normal but wow! From start to finish I was captivated, I could not put it down. Every time I thought I knew what was going on, boom something happens to change it. Dark and twisty amazingness, yea I'm making up words now! I can't wait to finish this duet!

OMG!! What a ride and a cliffhanger!! This is the first book I have read by this author. I am glad I picked this book up. I can't to dig into the sequel.
So many secrets!

Guaranteed to get your blood pumping and your heart racing!
I have so many questions - All the secrets and innuendos are what drew me in - And the blatant darkness that is Jonathon.

Amelia is a go-getter but a bit naive - I felt her character sort of devolved as the storyline progressed. Though I will admit Jonathon is quite skilled in the art of manipulation.
Again I have so many questions!
We are given brief glimpses at possible scenarios but never given the whole picture. I have

This book is so not what I expect from Rachael. But Holy %&@*# This book is so full of suspense. Like bite your nails, on the seat of your chair, ready to scream.. And the steam, good gracious.

In this story we have Amelia and Jonathan. These two are from totally different worlds. Their chemistry really pulls them together. I really enjoyed following them right up to the end. I kept hoping the dirty secrets would come out and I am in dire need of knowing them after that ending.

Had to gather my thoughts here before writing this... but OMG! This book has EVERYTHING! And I don't just mean epic Heroes and heriones to swoon over every page... there's passion, there's secrets, desire, lust, fame, fortune... everything
Amelia grabbed me from the get go, with her passion for singing, her love for her family, the farm... I just love her. Johnathan... I'm still not sure what to make or think of him... there are times when I love him (and who wouldn't when he treats a woman like

What an amazing start to a new series that I have a feeling is going to become an addiction.

Rachael kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way though this book. I wasn't never sure what direction she was going to go in. I think I made my husband jump a few times with my outbursts.

I loved Amelia from the very beginning and Jonathan I had a love/hate relationship with (in a good way). These two are complete opposites but the chemistry between them is hot AF!

4 1/2 Stars!

Amelia is trying to make it in the music business when she is swept off her feet by Johnathan. Johnathan is a rich politician. After reading this one, he's kind of a mystery still and I'm not sure whether I like him or not. He has some shady business deals and we still don't have all the details about a previous scandal. Amelia is a good character. I think she puts up with too much from Johnathan and doesn't ask enough question but he knows how to swoon her into forgetting about thi

OMG OMG this book left me speechless. I had to sit down and think for a minute because this book is amazing. Everything you want in a book Rachael Brownell has it in Caught in the Storm. This is an awesome start to a series.

Amelia is a naive girl that moved to the city to try and make a singing career. Johnathan the famous politician that will have your wondering what is he hiding.

Unexpected twists & turns

You want to root for the guy that sweeps the girl off her feet & gives her the world. For Amelia, Jonathan’s good looks & confidence charmed her into his arms for the night. She was immediately brought into his intense & high profile world of luxury living. But Jonathan seems too good to be true. With clues leading Amelia towards danger, will an unexpected ally help her before it’s too late? I was not expecting the twists & turns of this book. Can’t wait to see what happ

An addicting story that will have you on the edge of your seat while turning the pages quickly needing to know what happens next. Jonathan is a chameleon who draws Amelia in and changes her life in ways that are beyond belief. The suspense and twists had me finishing this book in one afternoon. It is a must read for those looking for suspense, intrigue and a love story that is not what it seems. I cannot wait to see how their story ends. Fantastic.

I am not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn’t this. This was an amazing story. It will grab you right from the start and the twists and turns will keep you engrossed until the end. Good thing I had the free time to read it, finished it in a day! Jonathan can be sweet when he wants to, but he really is arrogant and selfish wolf disguised as a sheep. Amelia is a gullible country girl trying hard to make her way on her own, she just needs something to go her way.

An exceptional and captivating story. Jonathan’s public and even at times private facade hide his true colors and Amelia has no idea what she is in for when she falls for him. All she wanted was to be seen and heard, but things are not always what they appear to be. A page turner that you will not be able to put down. It is a must for those looking for a mesmerizing read that will leave you wanting more.

I did enjoy the book. Having said that, I would like to say that I was very disappointed in the way the author ended this book. If the purpose of leaving us hanging is to sell the next book, well, for me that WILL NOT happen now! I can survive without knowing what happens next in this story, and will not be reading any more books from this author.

This story pulled me in from the moment I cracked open the page. Amelia captured my attention and the twisted secret side of Johnathan had my skin crawling. It has mystery, angst and everything I love to read in a story. I need more to find out where the story is going to end.

This book started out good but completely fell apart in the last few chapters. I won't bother buying the second in the series.
