Turbulence is in their forecast
Summer Raines knows when it's going to rain. She can just feel it. That's why the local weather girl's so good at her job. Too bad she couldn't have foreseen the tumultuous arrival of Travis Lockwood, everybody's favorite star NFL quarterback. Make that former star NFL quarterback. Sidelined back to Texas after an injury forced him out of his career, now the golden boy–shouldn't he be humbled by his adversity, even a little?–is trying to steal her precious on–air time. Summer is reduced to reporting on the weather from…football games. It's enough to make her quit and follow her dream of becoming a storm–chaser like her parents. Except she's got to stay put; her grandparents need her. She's stuck with a career that's going nowhere and a man who delights in her refusal to be charmed. Falling in love isn't nearly as easy as predicting the weather.

I loved it, a must read read
What to say, what to say. I really enjoyed reading this book. Summer Raines is a meteorologist who has a knack for knowing what the weather is going to do. Travis is a former NFL hot shot who ends up working at the same TV station and Summer. Everyone worships the former football star turned sports caster. Espec ailly Rachel the night time anchor. Much to Rachel’s dismay Travis doesn’t seem to see anything in Rachel, but Summer is a whole other story. I have to say that I loved that this story took it’s time to be a “love” story. I don’t like “insta love” it’s so unrealistic. I don’t mind the “love at first sight” thing, but even then I think it takes times to develop a relationship. This book does such a great job of that. Summer is convinced that Travis is only part of the team to ruin her time as a “weather girl”. The news manager takes 30 seconds away from Summers time to give to Travis as a newbie. Summer, is convinced it’s all Travis’s doing. The relationship between Summer and Travis is strained, and it’s actually quite entertaining. It’s fun to see a man work so hard to make an impression on someone who doesn’t seem to care either way. Made me chuckle a few times! I love Summers grandparents. They are such sweet people, who love Summer unconditionally. They are her rock in a world that sometimes was hard for Summer. I have to admit I usually mock the weather people on TV. In AZ they have two things to report hot, or not so hot (which Arizonans call Winter). When there is actual “weather” they get all excited like a kid at Christmas. It’s so entertaining. This book was a little glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes. The author did a great job of getting me involved in the daily goings on at a news station. I just love that Summer is a strong, and determined woman. I like that she makes sure that Travis is genuine before she allows herself to “fall” for him. This is such a sweet story of finding friendship that can turn to true love. Those are my favorite kinds of love stories. I enjoy when there is more to the relationship than the “insta” love. Travis and Summer connected as friends before they truly allowed themselves to be connected in a real relationship. If you like love stories this book is definitely for you. It’s so sweet, and it flows well. It’s a fun story. It has some interesting twists and turns, and it ends well. I like those stories best. I don’t like cliff hangers. Okay, I kind of do, but it’s nice to read a story that ends sometimes. This one did just that, it ends and I felt very satisfied at the end. I hope you get a chance to pick this book up. It is fun! Happy Reading ¿
