Summary from Goodreads:

Stormy Credence was destined to succumb to the Credence family curse—they all did.

Stormy is put to the test one more time, when the one man that she never wanted to see again—‘Rock Star’ Knox Gunner comes blowing back into her life—back to claim what’s his—Stormy. This time he will stop at nothing to prove that she belongs to him in every sense of the word…

When Stormy meets sexy band front man Knox Gunner, there’s no denying him. Willing to take a chance on love, Stormy breaks the most important Credence rule, no relationships—ever—a mistake that results in heartbreaking devastation.

But can she keep her feelings from getting dangerously deep until his game of ‘Breaking the Storm’ is over?

My Thoughts:

I’ll admit I was drawn by the cover and I wanted to read a quick steamy filled read. Plus lately I have an obsession with rockers in books so I wanted to meet Knox and see if he could rock my world.

The beginning of this book was just plain brilliant! I really loved meeting Tiber and Solista because they had spark from the start of the book. I wanted desperately to know more about who they were and what the deal was with this world they were living in. Plus Tiber…yeah sign me up for a piece of that wolf-shifter. Sadly after this the story shifted to decades later where we get to meet Stormy and Knox. Even though I was really bummed that Solista and Tiber were already out of the story I quickly became interested in Stormy and Knox and what they had going on. Then the story changed yet again to another five years later and I feel like I lost who Stormy and Knox had become over those five years where they were not with each other.

Stormy was now a bitter woman who spent all her time wrapped up in work and Knox sort of became a bit of an asshole with age. I was wondering how their characters were going to turn around for the better. I felt a little off with the rest of the book going forward because I really felt that Knox went about winning Stormy back in the wrong ways. He basically just demanded what he wanted and expected her to follow along with that. Whenever she tried standing up to him he just seemed to hold her company over her head until she agreed to submit. If found this at times hard to swallow because I feel that when you are giving a man everything he desires, demands, or asks for that you should have some level of trust and these characters didn’t have any trust for a long time in the book. I have nothing wrong with a dominating man but I need a little trust before you start sleeping with each other.

I also felt that the end of this book was a bit sudden. All of a sudden everything is working for the couple and yet the world around them is in complete pieces yet its ok to end a book there? I felt like Stormy and Knox still have a story to tell but the next book is going to focus more on Light and her story. I’m not sure yet how I feel about that. I guess I just wish more time had been spent on Knox winning over Storm instead of just demanding her heart in return for nothing really.

Overall, I did like certain things about this book. I found the supernatural world parts to be very interesting and I do like Storm, Light, Knox, Bones, and the rest of the cast but I just want to know more about them before I commit to this. Plus I know this book is pushed as a New Adult read but I have to say it reads more like an adult urban fantasy or even paranormal read than it does a New Adult read. Ultimately, I think I’m going to give the second book a try and see if more is explained.
