Review: Storm by Carian Cole


Ashes and Embers Series, Book 1

Carian Cole

Published 2014
The calm before the storm…I lived in the quiet stillness.
I felt the wind rustle, warning me, telling me to get out of its path.

But I didn’t.
I never stood a chance.

A series of weather and road mishaps leaves me trapped in the middle of a blizzard with a complete stranger. In the back of a pickup truck. For forty-eight freakin’ hours.
A stranger with long hair, tattoos, and rippling with muscle.
A stranger with an insanely sexy voice and a wicked smile that turned my insides to jelly.  A stranger who held me in his arms, calmed me, and then set a fire in me that I couldn’t put out.
Storm lives up to his name. Beautiful. Dangerously inviting. Tumultuous. Dark. A clash of hot and cold.
He’s used to getting everything he wants.
And now he wants me.
Some people chase storms for the beautiful thrill. What happens when the storm chases you?

review4.5 Stars

Storm is let me grab a hold of something and hang on tight because my heart just skipped a beat, oh my God I think Im drooling, somebody slap me, good looking. With hair that most women wish for, mussels that want your eyes to be plastered to and a body covered in tats.  Let’s not forget the most intense eyes. I am a such sucker for man with long hair and tattoos. I fell in love with Storm from the moment he banged on the window. Commanding yet caring. Demanding yet giving. Beyond complex yet simple. Storm is more that what meets the eye. As I got to know Storm, I realize he is everything I would want my fantasy man to be.

Evelyn becomes completely conflicted by what she knows of life and love like a flip of a switch.  Having played the same tale on repeat for the past twelve, it’s truly all she knows. When what started as a business trip quickly turns into Evelyn putting her car into a ditch and changing her life.  The dangerous looking, sexy stranger opens the little box of world to a new light in forty eight hours. A timid woman who got a taste of what letting go is like. A woman who makes herself find the strength to have what she wants. Things she never knew she could have. Things it now seems possible she can’t live with out.

Storm, the first book of the Ashes and Embers series flippin ROCKS!  I pretty sure I was lost to this book by page ten. Intense characters that make you laugh, yell and love!  Great story line that is layered in romance and being romanced. My favorite quote from the book that really sums itself up.

Evie, you gotta stop living in fear. You can’t see the stars unless you go out in the dark. “

A great beginning for a wonderful new author!!
