How do you control the uncontrollable? That's the question always at the back of Jennifer Jones' mind. Having survived the unpredictable childhood from hell, her exacting control over her day to day life is the only thing keeping her sane. Come, take her hand and step into the darkness of her past. Jennifer was simply looking for a roommate. What she found in Mac was so much more than she could have hoped for. She is more than just a woman with baggage, she's emotionally damaged with a dark and unhappy past. I was worried at first that she'd be one of those heroines that make you insane - the kind who hides behind her past and pushes the hero away completely. To my enjoyable surprise, she wasn't like that in the least. When she does hold Mac at arm's length, she has good reason behind it. Jennifer's emotional growth during this story is wonderful and realistic as well. Maclain Moore is a woman's dream come to life. Because of his job as a social worker, he's not only familiar with the damaged goods that can result from a rough childhood, but he has that one skill lacking in so many adults - the ability to simply listen. More than anything, that is what Jennifer needs in her life. I love Mac's character to no end. He knows how far to push and just when to back off as well. He takes her as she is, baggage and all, and embraces her dysfunctionality fully. If there was ever a man made specifically for a woman with Jennifer's history, it is definitely Mac. Add in the fact that he's athletic and gorgeous and you've got the perfect package. Shelter from the Storm is an emotionally intense story that will grab you by the heart, refusing to let go. If you've ever wondered how a woman with a dark and dreadful past finds happiness, then you will want to read Jennifer's journey to just that - happiness and release from her personal demons.
