This book picks up where the other left off. Tru Bennett and Jake Wethers are on vacation so they can finally spend time alone together to celebrate their engagement. I'm not gonna lie, in the first half of the book not much really happened. It was pretty much an extended epilogue where everything was going good and they were happy. That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it. I was in a blissful state right along with them. They are both still dealing with their insecurities. I was a bit annoyed that they both still had these issues, but when I started remembering what happened in the first book, I thought I would probably be insecure as well. Which reminds me, I should have re-read the first book again, since I read it SO long ago. But anyways, Tru and Jake still disagreed at times and acted childish (especially Tru), but seeing them love each other had me sighing constantly. I was almost waiting for something really bad to happen. And boy, did it happen.

I was so happy to see that we got Jake pov in this book. I love getting inside his head and read what he is thinking. Jake blew. my. mind!! He was über romantic. I don't remember him being that way, but he was so freaking swoony. I had to remind my heart to keep calm. The things he did... He was a sexy rocker, with such a thoughtful sweet side. I loved each side of him and together, he was just so perfect. Jake still thinks he is unworthy of Tru and fears losing her. My heart still breaks for him when he talks about the abusive past he suffered at his father's hands. I so wanted to hug him so bad when he kept comparing himself to his father, and how he didn't want to turn into him. It was really sad. But I think Jake has come a long way. I couldn't be more happy for him. He melted my heart completely into a big puddle of mush. I LOVED him!! *sigh*

"My love for you is limitless, it knows no bounds. You're in my veins. I bleed you. I belong to you... I always have and always will."

The book was a whole lot romantic and steamy. They could not keep their hands off each other. It seemed Jake was always randomly attacking her, but she wasn't complaining, I mean who would. It was awesome and at times really beautiful. Like I mentioned before, things were going so perfect that I knew something bad was bound to happen. And it did, big time. The last thirty percent or so, was intense. My emotions were everywhere. I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, but I was tearing up a bit. I think this turn of events is what caused these two characters to really grow. It was great to see them transform and yet still be themselves.

The ending and epilogue of this book was so BEAUTIFUL!! Again, Jake just swept me off my feet. It will not dissapoint. I loved how everything concluded for this pair. Absolutely happy with it! And now Tom is next to have his book and I can't wait!! He may be annoying in a dirty way, but that's what I love about him. I also loved all of the secondary characters and how things ended up for them as well. I was so glad to see Simone happy. But I can't lie, I was squeeing so bad to see Stuart find his happiness. I loved this book and definitely recommend you read this right after you read or re-read The Mighty Storm.
