Riding The StormBy Sydney Croft (#1)

A storm’s rage. A woman’s desire.

A man with the power to set them both free.

He can summon lightning at will. Emerge unscathed from the center of a tornado. Strip a woman down to her barest defenses through the sheer force of his sexuality. He’ s gorgeous, dangerous, and the target of parameteorologist Haley Holmes’s latest mission. Haley has been dispatched to the Louisiana bayous to investigate the phenomenon known as Remy Begnaud–a man with a gift he never wanted: the ability to control a storm’s fury. But even a woman trained in bizarre weather phenomena has no defense against the electrifying power of the ex—Navy SEAL...a power his enemies would kill to control.

With her agency monitoring their every move, Haley’s job is to seduce Remy, gain his trust–and help him harness his extraordinary gift. But who will protect her from this voracious lover who’s introducing her to a new world of erotic thrills—a man who grows increasingly insatiable with each new weather event? Haley knows a big storm is approaching—and with it will come unexpected delights. But so, too, will the storm unleash her greatest fears: an enemy bent on destroying Remy. And her worst fear of all—falling in love with this magnificent man, then having to betray him.

Rhonda's Review:

The "X-men" comparison would be correct, in more ways than one. *wiggles eyebrows*

I really liked the concept of the story, and the sex scenes were HOT!! I liked the characters, Remy is such a Horn Dog, with a super cool power. Creed...now this is the one I'm seriously looking forward to more of.(whew) Annika- I really liked her smart ass and full of attitude character, who also has some super charged powers of her own. I really want to read more about Annika and Creed. Now for Haley...I didn't connect with her on any level, good or bad. It just felt like the tired old "I can't do anything" heroine. Sure in the end, she managed a little something to prove herself, but don't they all??
I guess the biggest surprise was the M/M sex scene, I didn't see that one coming!

I think Larissa Ione, and Stephanie Tyler did a really good job with the writing. I could pick out some of Ione's sense of humor, but I really couldn't tell where one ended and the other began.

Overall this was a fun read, and I enjoyed it alot. I will be reading the rest of the series.

Thanks for the follow Jenese! I'm looking forward to more of this series, but my mountain of TBR books keeps growing instead of getting smaller. :-D
