    Angry Reader

    This was the second book I read by Marie Rochelle. I was disappointed. I really enjoyed reading My Deepest Love for the most part. The ending did drag a bit, but I was interested in reading more by this author. However, this book was just pitiful. There were so many typos. Edit, edit, edit!!! Then edit so more. I got so frustrated. Some parts of the story just did not make any sense. The storyline had potential, but the story just did not flow. It was like the author tried to fill up the pages and just kept repeating the same thing over and over. Storm acted like a insecure child who just couldn't get over it. Syleena got on my nerves. The way these two people interacted with each other was ridiculous. The author used words like shouted, snapped, snarled, whispered, and growled when it wasn't called for. There are other ways of describing how people talk to each other. As you can tell, I'm an angry reader. I couldn't even finish reading it. I do not recommend this book.

    Really!?

    Mixed feelings about the book. On one hand I'm rooting for the two to FINALLY be together, but on the other hand I agreed with the ranch hand - Tom?? ... the cat &mouse/on & off games they played with each other made me hate the time it took to read it. I was really annoyed.

    Conflicting Emotions

    I agree about the typos in the book. I also agree that Storm did some stuff I would probably never forgive. However, this was a great story, alot of suspense twists and turns. There were sub plots within plots. You never knew where you were going next, but the ride was enjoyable.

    A tumultuous love story Taken by Storm is a tumultuous love sto

    A tumultuous love story

    Taken by Storm is a tumultuous love story with many twists and turns. By the end of this story, you’ll certainly feel like you’ve been through a “storm”.

    Syleena is an African-American woman with a past…or rather lives as the daughter of a horrible mother who’s a “proud prostitute” and a money hungry leech. Everything Syleena does in life is geared to move her farther away from her mother’s reach and the painful memories of her childhood.

    The hero, Storm, is a super alpha male carrying the wounds of mistrust of women. The two initially meet through Storm’s younger sister, Courtni, who’s Syleena’s roommate in college. Courtni invites Syleena to spend summer vacation with her in Texas on her ranch.

    Sparks fly or better yet lightning hits when Storm and Syleena meet. Storm, as his name suggests, is powerful and controlling. He’s a wealthy banker and a part time cowboy. However, Syleena is the type of woman who never wants to be talked down to, controlled by or dependent on a man no matter how attracted she is to him. The two clash in less than 24 hours. Syleena leaves the ranch in tears.

    Five years later, the two meet again in Texas at Storm’s uncle’s wedding. Even though Storm tried to get Syleena out of his head and heart, the attraction is still there. Storm takes full advantage and vows not to allow her to get away again!

    One of the major obstacles to their love is Storm’s crazy ex-girlfriend, April. She hates Syleena on sight because it’s clear that Storm is in love with her. She plots to take Syleena out of Storm’s life by threatening to expose Syleena’s mother to Storm and the rest of the town. Since Storm is a respectable and wealthy man with trust issues, a stain such as Syleena’s mother would ruin this relationship. The inner obstacle of Storm’s distrust issue is inherited from his father. It keeps Syleena and his relationship on edge at all times, especially when other men are around her. In Syleena’s case, she has the obstacle of shame that stems from her mother’s “occupation” and pain from her father’s suicide. Those keep her from fully being truthful with Storm about her family’s history.

    Overall, the story flows well. However, as a Southerner, the dialog of these Texans is not believable. It’s entirely too “proper”. I really like the heroine, Syleena; she’s just a good girl trying to make the best out of her life. Storm is definitely a man with some trust and entitlement issues. Again, overall it’s a good read.

    "Hello"

    I liked this book and found it refreshing. Some of the topics where far-fitched but it still gelled together. I would recommend it!

    Not great

    This book was ok to start with. But the way he treated her in the middle was so bad the fact that she went back to him made the book horrible.
