Review by: Nahomi
“Do you ever let go, storm girl?” he asked. “Ever lose control? Ever surrender?” “Never,” I whispered. “I never surrender.” A smile of both promise and warning curved his beautiful mouth. “You will.”
Atmospheric scientist Kelsey March is under siege. Her tornado research project is on the skids and she’s fighting conflict in her university department. So when irresistible bad boy Archer West suggests a hot, wild fling while he’s in town, Kelsey is unable to resist his sexy offer.
Kelsey and Archer embark on a intense, exhilarating affair. But soon their differences and private battles encroach on their desire, and Kelsey discovers that Archer is a storm she can’t control.
3 stars out of 5 stars
*I received an eARC of this book from the author but it did not influence this review in way.*

      This was a difficult book for me to get through. I like the concept and found the story interesting, although some of the dialogue was a turn off for me. There were constant weather references made throughout the novel that felt redundant and got tedious as the story progressed. I'm still trying to figure out what maleness taste like... this phrase is fast becoming a pet peeve of mine. Either way the story wasn't bad. It was a little predictable and cheesy but the ending was decent.

Kelsey is a great female lead! She is portrayed as a strong career women, a scientist/professor at a prestigious university. She excels in a predominantly male dominated career and can hold her own. She is tough but is able to show her vulnerable side at the same time. I like that she doesn't take crap from any of her colleagues and works hard to achieve what she wants.

Archer is a special mix of caveman and little kid rolled up into a good-looking bad boy biker. He is rough and wants to come off as a looser but he's really a softy. Lets just say he has some serious issues and leave it at that. He sees Kelsey as a challenge and works really hard to get under her skin and ends up being changed by her as well.

Kelsey and Archer have this love hate relationship that wanted to seem explosive but for me it didn't come off that way. They were only supposed to be hooking up no strings attached but from the get go they were getting all emotional and into each others business which didn't really make sense because it's only supposed to be a hook-up.

The story didn't lag and moved at a decent pace. My biggest issues were with the dialogue and language of the story. I will say that both characters experienced character growth throughout the story and I am glad that Kelsey and Archer's story ended the way it did.
