Music journalist Tru Bennett has done the impossible: capture the heart of rock-star bad boy Jake Wethers. Now they’re busy planning a wedding and navigating their new life together in the US. Of course Tru misses London and her best friend, Simone, but living happily ever after with Jake in LA is going to be great…right?
Wrong. Even the bright California sun can’t whitewash the dark side of celebrity coupledom. Greedy music execs, merciless paparazzi, and Jake’s wild past are lurking around every corner. Making matters worse, Jake announces he doesn’t want kids, which just may be a deal breaker.
Tru loves Jake more than anything. But when a devastating crisis threatens to destroy everything they’ve fought for, the couple must face the hard truth: What if, this time, love is not enough?
Samantha Towle has written one of my favorite rock star romances to date. The Might Storm brought Jake and Tru back together – best friends as children – then separated when Jake’s mother moves to the United States. Some how fate had other ideas in story – years later she’s to interview him for a music magazine she’s working for in London – as Jake’s bad The Might Storm (TMS) is THE band of the moment, garnishing international attention.
If you haven’t read The Might Storm – DO NOT read any further!
When we left off with Jake and Tru – she’s moving to LA – they’re engaged and blissfully happy. Tru is still writing Jake’s bio – and working for her London based magazine. But she’s desperately missing Simone and her life in London – slowly getting acclimated to the new LA Lifestyle. They get a new home – they start building their loves together – wedding plans are in the works and what could possibly throw a wrench into this perfect situation?
Ohhh wouldn’t you like to know!
I cried for the last quarter of the book – I’m getting awfully emotional in my old 35 years of age ha!
Can Jake and Tru make their relationship work? Can Tru get over her jealousy that Jake has slept with the majority of LA’s finest groupies? Can Tru deal with the idea that Jake doesn’t want to have kids? Or is this going to be a deal breaker? Sooooooo many questions – answered and then some!
Read it – Like NOW! You won’t be disappointed!
“There is no one else for me. I begin and end with you.”
“Do you remember what I said that first night we moved into our new house? What you asked me to say as my vows? It still stands Tru, it will always stand. 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 I always will. You will always be my June, Tru.”
“If you turn up with a tattoo on your face, telling me you’ve shagged a lady boy, I’m definitely not marrying you.”
“Your dad said you stopped playing right after I left.” He did? “My dad talks too much.” “Why, Tru?” “I dunno.” I shrug. “He just does.” “No.” Jake smiles, coming over to me. “Not why does your dad talk too much. Why did you stop playing after I left?” “When you left, I guess the music left with you.”
“I don’t know who moves first, but suddenly we’re kissing, like we’ve never kissed before. it’s desperate. No tenderness. This is hard, starved-for-each-other kissing.”
“Jake scratches his forehead. “Yeah, I know people generally have sex while pregnant, but it’s just that I, um… well, I have…” He thrusts his hands through his hair, and i can’t help but smile at his struggling, wondering where on earth he’s going with this. “Look, I have a huge penis,” he states, looking Dr. Glamazon dead in the eye. I burst out laughing immediately clamping my hand over my mouth.”
“The girl who, twenty-four years ago to the day, stepped into my life with her big brown eyes, her hair in pigtails, sucking on a lollipop as she stared across at me through the garden fence and said, “I’m Trudy, you want a lollipop?” I let out a laugh as tears fill my eyes, realizing today’s date is August 31. The day Jake and I met.”
“And when our kids grow up and ask about the story of Mummy and Daddy – how we met and how the Might Storm came to be – I’ll sit them down and tell them the story of how, once upon a long time ago, in Manchester, a girl moved next door to a boy.”
This was from The Mighty Storm – but brought up again in this book – still one of the best….
“Reznor’s version or Johnny Cash’s?” I asked quietly, trying to conceal the pain from my voice. “Johnny Cash.” “Why?” He closes his eyes briefly. “Because I have a few things in common with him,” he answered, opening his eyes. “Like?” “The drugs…the women…hanging out for the girl of my dreams.”
