Nelson Dunn has a settled routine – an evening security-guard job, days off for his therapy dogs, occasional club sex, and good books. He sometimes dreams about more, but he’s made himself content. So when Hurricane Lauris strands Caleb Robertson at his house, Nelson has mixed feelings about having an attractive guy in his space. Especially when nothing more can possibly happen.
Caleb went to the hospital to get the cast off his broken foot. Instead, he finds himself waiting out the storm with Nelson, his three dogs, and a very wet cat. It’s less of a hardship than he’d have expected.
This is book 5 in the Storming Love and this book left me feeling wonderful and hopeful for the future. I want a Caleb in my life. His total acceptance on Nelson for who he is as he is brought tears to my eyes. The ending was peaceful and left things open for a potential HEA.
This is the first time I can remember reading a book just to find out about a character. Caleb was wonderful and, yes, I wanted the romance, but I needed to know why Nelson behaved as he did. Ms. Harper wrote him so well. His mannerisms, behavior patterns, and short internal debates left me wondering about his past. She didn’t need long drawn out conversations or big colorful actions. She very subtle developed Nelson in such a way as to drive me crazy. I had to keep reading, I had to know his story. And once I found out his issue, oh man… totally sympathy and a few tears. No one should ever be made to feel like they are less than simple because of something they were born with and have no control over. And I fell in love with Caleb for his reaction to Nelson’s reveal.
I could sit here and describe the entire story to you or even the writing style. Both were fantastic. But the characters stole the show in this one. Nelson and his quiet reserve and smouldering looks. Caleb with his open personality and eagerness to show Nelson he cares. This is my first time reading anything by Kaje Harper and I finished this book looking forwards to discovering more of her works. I loved this story.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
