Building Storm: (A Hawke Family Novel) (Hawke Family #4) by Gwyn McNamee
5 out of 5 stars
Building Storm is the fourth book in the Hawke Family series written by Gwyn McNamee and I have to say is WOW…. This is an emotional story about two broken people that have known loss and finding love again. Ms. McNamee’s writing is exceptionally good, the plot sucks you in from the first page and keeps you fully engrossed until the last page. Her characters are well developed and amazing, we even get to see some characters from the first three books and we see what they are up to.
Can two broken people make each other whole?
We read a little about Storm in the first few books…. Her life went up in flames when she lost the love of her life, all she has left is her daughter and ashes. The simple act of breathing is so excruciating, there are days she couldn’t get it together. She has no business being at the party that she doesn’t want to be at, and she definitely shouldn’t be in the arms of the handsome stranger.
Landon is broken for different reasons and he needs to get away from Chicago and the betrayal that shattered his world. He needs a new life-one without attachments. The vibrancy of New Orleans convinces himself it’s possible to start over. Yet in all the excitement of a new city, it’s Storm Hawke’s dark, sad beauty that draws him in.
She isn’t looking for love, and they both need a hot, sweaty release without feelings getting involved. So when his lips meet hers, and he breathes life into her for the first time since the day the inferno disintegrated her world. But loving again isn’t in the cards, and there are even greater dangers to face than trying to keep Landon McCabe out of her heart.
But even the best laid plans fail, and life can leave you burned….
You will need to read this story/series to find out about what happens to this amazing couple. I can’t wait to see what Ms. McNamee has in-store for us with her next installment of The Hawke family series.
I highly recommend this book/series.
