My Thoughts

This book was uh-mazing! Once I started, I had a very hard time putting it down. The authors did a superb job at interweaving the character’s stories to connect all of them together, even without their knowledge!

What I loved……

I loved the storm warnings in between the different parts of the book. You really do not get a sense of exactly what is going to happen until the very end. I had a feeling that I knew what was going on, but boy was I wrong, I had never suspected what had actually happened.

What I liked…..

I really enjoyed the relationship between EJ and her brother Kyle. They had a pretty strong bond and Kyle always had her back. The fact that they were practically best friends left me in awe wishing that me and my brother had the same type of relationship. Not just siblings, but literally friends.

A little love triangle……

I must admit that I am a sucker for love triangles. If there is one, I want to read that book so much more! What I loved about these characters is that they weren’t all angsty and “oh poor me”, they dealt with their issues and tried to move past them to see if there would be be a better light at the end of the tunnel. They didn’t dwell on the fact that they didn’t get the guy, they moved on to greener pastures and ended up finding love in other places.

The ending…..

I was not expecting that shock of an ending! I got to the end and kind of looked like this…..

Get ready for a major cliffhanger! One that came totally out of left field and left me praying for the next book SOON! After finishing the book, I can honestly say….take note of the Storm Warnings!



Hope’s Grove was small. Everyone knew about her parents, and she was already dreadingfacing them since the news of her dad’s affair had hit. But facing them withouther brother and her best friend would be her worst nightmare.

After the girls had said their goodbyes and she’d watched her friend’s taillightsfade down the drive, Ella Jane scuffed her boots along the winding dirt roadthat led her home.
She was about halfway there, watching the sun sink low in the evening sky, when theunmistakable rumble of a pickup truck came barreling down the road behind her.She stepped aside to let it pass without looking back. But it didn’t pass. Itslowed practically to a stop right next her.
She turned, wondering what the heck the driver’s deal was. There was more thanenough room for him to go around. But the smiling face beneath the backwardstrucker hat sent the words on the tip of her tongue swirling away with the dustthe truck had riled up.
She bit her lip and grinned. Warm brown eyes gleamed in her direction. “Hey there,Ellie May. Need a ride?”
She rolled her eyes. Why Brantley Cooper couldn’t call her by her actual name wasbeyond her. But as long as he was talking to her, she really didn’t care muchwhat he called her. He can call me ‘flower’ if he wants to.
He was a year older than her and a year youngerthan her older brother, Kyle. Smack in the middle of their ages and grades inschool and usually smack in the middle of their arguments. Coop kept the peace.Balanced them out perfectly.
The three of them had met at the same time as kidsbut Coop and Kyle had become like brothers instantly. She’d always tagged alongwherever they went. Kyle had whined about it when they were younger but Coopalways made her feel welcome. He held doors open for her so she didn’t get leftbehind, made sure to invite her despite her brother’s protests, and lately he’deven stopped by and hung out even when Kyle wasn’t home. And this year, she’dbe a junior and Coop would be a senior. With her big brother away at college,she couldn’t help but fantasize about what might happen if she and Coop spenttime together alone.
“Hey, Coop. Lynlee just left so I was just…” She glanced toward home. Kyle wasn’tback from football camp yet, and her mom was baking herself to death, trying tokeep her mind off of everything.
“Yeah, I heard the Wicked Witch was moving west. You up for some fishing? I have todrop my bike off at the house but we could swing by the lake after.”
She should get home. She knew she should. Should order a pizza and convince her momto take it easy for a night. Except…it was Coop. And in all her sixteen years,he was the one boy she’d never been able to say no to.

“Yeah. Yeah I’m up for it.”
