Overview

The Storm by R.J. Prescott

Marie Kelly is a survivor who doesn’t know when to quit. Against all odds, she’s living a life she never dreamed she could have. It was enough… until a stubborn fighter makes her want more.

Irish charmer Kieran Doherty has been a fighter at Driscoll’s Gym for most of his life. He’s been content to let his best friend take the spotlight, now it’s his turn to make a name for himself in the world of heavy weight champions. Falling in love is the one thing he vowed never to do, but meeting Marie changed everything.

It’s easy to imagine a happy ever after when the sun is shining. But when the storm comes, and all hope seems lost, they both learn that if you want something badly enough, you have to be willing to fight for it.

Good story. Needs editing and alot of mix up with character names at times. Kiernan's middle name is Joseph but then it's Patrick. Mary Riordan is called Mary Kelly. It also needs a spell check.

## Good but not great. I loved Hurricane so much that my expectations may have been too high for this book. It just didn't carry the same weight as Con's story. It was insta love with no build up. Also, I felt there needed to be a conflict other than health issues to be more interesting. The secondary characters were fabulous and carried over beautifully from the previous books. However, Kieran and Marie were quite boring. Even the sex scenes were insignificant. Not sure if I'll read Tommy's story.

3 - "Defy the odds." Stars. The Storm is the first book that I have read by R. J. Prescott, although it heavily features characters from her previous two books The Hurricane and The Aftermath. Although I would agree that this is a book that can easily be read as a standalone, there were certain characters and aspects of the book that happened without much explanation or real development to them, which I think may be attributed to it being dealt with in more depth in the previous books, Liam and Albie’s inclusion in the story for one, to me it came completely out of left-field without much preamble, and I just found myself wondering while reading if this was because the build-up to their revelation was played out previously to Kieran and Marie’s book. Also the jump from friendship to something else between our main characters was quite ‘insta’, and again I got the feeling it was possibly because their beginnings had played out already. "One day something or someone, will make the sun come out, and you’ll smile again." You have to love a book that has you in tears from its prologue, and I got a few odd looks while on the train I can tell you, so following on from that I had high expectations for fighter/trainer; Kieran 'The Storm' Doherty and seamstress/wedding dress designer; Marie 'Irish' Kelly’s book. "Hold onto your knickers, Irish. There’s a storm coming." And on the whole it was an enjoyable enough read, no arguments from me that the author can write well, and put a cohesive and easy to read story-line together, my three star rating is more to do with the fact that from the first few paragraphs I could pretty much guess exactly how their story would play out, and apart from one small twist towards the end everything played out as expected. But Kieran was sweetly attentive, and Marie likeably amenable to his considerable charms, so it wasn't a struggle to read the book. "I think I’ve finally met my match." I really enjoyed the interaction and inclusion of the wealth of secondary characters in this one as well, the banter between the guys was spot on and I liked the familial feel and camaraderie to it all, a few giggles were had in the telling of this story, as well as a few more tears shed in getting to its end. "My hero…" "…Always." I would certainly be happy to read more from this author in the future, I just think with the wealth of fighter type romances out there now, you need to offer up something different to the normal tropes to make the story stand out, and although there were a few twists and turns in its telling, nothing really new or unusual stood out about The Storm to take it from enjoyable to unforgettable. **This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy of the book.

I couldn't wait to read Kieran's story. He was such a loving and loyal friend that I just knew he'd be an amazing man to Marie! Such a wonderful story of the beauty of family and true love. Perfection!!! ?
