Building Storm (A Hawke Family Novel) ( The Hawke Family Book 4) by: Gwyn McNamee

Building Storm (A Hawke Family Novel) ( The Hawke Family Book 4) by Gwyn McNamee is the fourth Book in her Hawke Family Series .This series must be read in order as each book builds on one another. All I can say is Gwyn sure knows how to draw you in and keeps your attention till the end. She literally writes “knock your socks” off stories.I love the Hawke Family its definitely a series I see myself reading over and over again in the future. I’ve been patiently waiting for Storm’s story and Holy Cow was it worth the wait. Get ready for a emotional rollercoaster ride .This is Landon’s and Storms story.Both of these two know what betrayal feels like and both are in need of some healing. Find out what happens with these two. I highly recommend reading this book and the whole series if you haven’t already. I can’t wait to read more from this Author.

Building Storm
A Hawke Family Novel
The Hawke Family
Book 4
By Gwyn McNamee
Story of a second chance at finding love. This story is not for those under 18, due to strong adult content.

Storm has lost her husband is a terrible fire. All she has left is their daughter and his company. As she continues to work her way through the death of her beloved husband. She must continue to run his company. Being an employee, she needed to keep up her part of the business. She attends a party with her friend. Big mistake! But was it? Was meeting Landon a mistake?

Landon has left his home and job. Fleeing to New Orleans, a little town. But away from the things that sent him running. He needs to start over, no commitments will be allowed. He now needs a job and a hot fling. Going to a party he meets Storm. Sad eyes, yet absolutely beautiful. The one he can’t get out if his mind. Should he stay or should he go? That is his dilemma.

I absolutely love Gwyn McNamee writing style. Her mind set and her books. This is book 4 in the series. You must read them in order. In order to know and follow the Hawke family. I love the characters and the roles they play. The second chance she gives to Storm is beautiful. While this is the end of this series. I looking forward to see what comes next for Gwyn McNamee.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Building Storm is the fourth instalment of the Hawke Family series. Every book in this series has brought the drama and this one is no exception. I am a huge fan of this series and the characters it has created, so to say I was excited for this read is an understatement. This book has it all: drama, sexiness, love and a huge amount of emotion. I loved this story and think it is the perfect ending to the series.

At the end of the previous book, Stone Sober, I wasn’t sure how Storm was going to cope. I was excited to read her story but also nervous, as I knew it was going to be an emotional journey. Not only was she dealing with a tragic loss, she was also coming to terms with the new, difficult, relationship she has wit her brother Stone. This was one of the things I was most excited to read about, as I really couldn’t see how she would be able to forgive him and move on. Her relationships with all of her family and central to this book and I loved seeing the whole family together, especially with the inclusion of new boy, Landon! He is exactly what Storm is trying to avoid and yet the instant connection they have is crazy. He is so intense and it completely throws her, which was so much fun to read!

Aside from all the drama with the Hawke family, which there is an abundance of, Landon brings his own problems to the table. We learn pretty early on that he has some serious issues with his dad, but we don’t learn the truth of it for quite a while. I loved how well this was drawn out, as the little hints along the way had me guessing what had happened. There is a pretty dramatic ending so I won’t ruin it for you but it is the perfect conclusion to this series. I am gutted that it’s all over!

This series took me completely by surprise. From the first huge plot twist in Savage Collision, I found myself hooked on these characters and their lives. Storm’s story really hit me in the heart and I have grown to completely love her; is she allowed to be my favourite female character? This is a must read for fans of this series. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

Building Storm- A Hawke Family Novel (The Hawke Family Book 4), by Gwyn McNamee.
This is the fourth book in the Hawke Family Series. I fell in love with this author and this series from the first page of the first book. I have been waiting to read Storm’s story. This book had me hooked especially when Landon came into the picture. Their pull to each other was magical. They were both emotional wrecks that needed each other to heal. I both laughed and cried while reading this book!!!
I absolutely love Gwyn’s books and can not wait for more!!!!

5 +++++++ Stars

So I have done a bit of binge reading…I had only read Savage Collision before this book was released so could not read this one till I completed the other two and now I have a bonafide Hawke Family hangover and am so so sad that I don’t have another to move on to. I love this family and all those that have come along and joined it. Each story is unique and has something different to offer but the one constant throughout is the family ties which is one of my favorite things in my books. Then of course there’s the way this author twists these stories and you just sit there not knowing what is going to happen or when it’s going to happen. This one had me lost on the impending twist, I usually have some idea of what might happen but this one threw me and for some reason I didn’t see it coming till it was obvious.

My heart was broken in two at the end of Stone Sober and it didn’t mend till quite a ways into this one. That’s one of the reasons I love this author so so much, when I read her books I just know I’m in for an emotional ride and when that ride ends it always leaves me wanting so much more. I know this can’t be it…There’s more story to tell for this family especially with characters that have appeared back and you just know there’s more drama ahead and I for one CAN NOT WAIT!!

Do not even attempt to read these books out of order…It will not work and besides this author is brilliant and you don’t want to miss a single word 🙂

OMG..These book are killing me….I knew when I opened this one it was going to be an emotional one and I was so right….So much going on I don’t even know where to start.

I knew when reading Books 1 & 2 that somewhere along the way Stone would get his story and I knew there had to be a lot more to him than what I was seeing previously. As unsure of him as I was it did not take long to fall head over heels for this guy. As his story unfolds everything about him starts making sense and the way he felt about Nora…sigh…He tried to do the right thing and stay away from her but he just couldn’t help it. Nora is Dani’s sister and the sole reason that Dani met Savage when she did. I loved Nora…her cute ways of trying not to swear made me smile. She wasn’t all innocent and pure but was definitely not the type of woman that would stir Stone normally. Dani also tried to stay away from him but the draw was too strong and watching her struggle with how much she found herself loving all that Stone was and had to offer made complete sense.

It was the rest of the story that had me all messed up…So many things that came out of left field and made my jaw drop…This had my feelings all over the place, I went from being totally angry to completely heartbroken many times and I could not predict how this one was going to end, at one point I thought omg there’s not enough time for some of this to be dealt with but once again this author had everything under control and my love for her writing just gets stronger the more I read. So many things still to come and I’ve already got the next ready to go and can not wait to jump back in to this amazing family…

Trust me…Start from the beginning, do not read these out of order…

On to Book 4…..

5+++++ Stars

It has been awhile since I read Savage Collision and I’ll admit I kinda forgot just how much I love this author and her books, and how I absolutely couldn’t wait for the next in the Hawke Series. I loved Skyes story and everything that went with it. This author knows how to hook you on page 1 and literally won’t let you go even after you finish and that’s because she lets you in just a bit on what is coming next and thankfully I have the next sitting here waiting for me to start.

I love this family and those that are part of it even if they aren’t, like Gabe, who has been a part of the family for over 20 years and Savage’s best friend, which is why wanting Savage’s little sister is such a bad idea, especially when he is dealing with so many ghosts haunting him from his past.

Skye Hawke, Savage’s little sister who has tried very hard to push everyone away and cant seem to get over the loss of her twin sister. She threw herself at Gabe at Savage and Dani’s wedding and was rejected and knows that pursuing him will do nothing but cause problems within the family, but can she help herself?

I loved this story, and this family…I have become emotionally invested in all of them and love how this author can throw in some twists that you don’t see coming. This was an off the charts hot yet emotional read and I can not wait to dive in to Stone’s story.

Highly recommend, but don’t read these out of order, they all tie together and you really need all the pieces to fit!

Loved It!!

Building Storm is the fourth book in The Hawke Family series by Gwyn McNamee. This series needs to be read in order because one book follows the next. This is such a great series, you won’t want to miss any of the five star stories. That being said this is my absolute favorite book by Ms. McNamee and the best story I have read over the past year. Storm and Landon’s story is so emotional. They have both lost loved ones or been hurt by those they loved. This is truly an amazing story that you won’t want to miss. I highly recommend this book, series and author and can’t wait to see what Ms. McNamee has in store for us next.

Building Storm is tear jerking book four in the Hawke Family series by Gwyn McNamee. I knew from the blurb for this book it was going to be an emotional one. I was not wrong at all!! I am endlessly surprised by how an author can continuously produce these stories of such high quality and content, time and time again. They have my respect and appreciation for all the work that goes into each story. You can always tell the ones that leave it all on the pages for us lucky readers to witness. I am in awe of the stunning impact these stories have on me and the memories that will stay with me while I am on this earth.

Storm knows tragedy and pain, as does Landon. They have scars so deep, there is no end to them. Intensity and strange events have them drawn to each other, but for the physical connection, nothing more. I love when they think they are fooling us. They can be in denial all they like, but they will find that peace together. I will not have it any other way! The more they fight, the more inevitable it becomes. Landon is stubborn, and does not ever give up on Storm. Storm breaks my heart with what she has endured, that all I want is her to find that much deserved happiness. The emotional turmoil was relentless, but those moments of intense passion and connecting with another, was blinding in its beauty.

Building Storm is the final story in the Hawke Family series. It was agonising to read the last word of the final chapter, but an immeasurable pleasure to have been on this journey with all these complex,crafty, flawed and entertaining characters. This series is one I will read many more times. An unforgettable series. 5 stars.

Stone Sober (Hawke Family #3)Stone Sober by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Stone Sober is book three in the Hawke Family series by Gwyn McNamee. This story centres around Storm and Nora. Can i just say the names of these characters get my heart racing just reading them. The guys names are so manly and fitting for each character so far, it just is simply unleashed talent and delivery of amazing stories. It just impresses me beyond measure.

Stone just wormed his way into my thoughts and heart and left his own unique little mark. I don’t know whether it is because i feel he had the most pressure put on him, more so self inflicted, or whether he always felt he had something to prove, but he just dragged those caring emotions out of me more than any other character. Nora was not supposed to get under his skin like she did, but cupid had other ideas. Nothing can stop true love and theirs was destiny. But they had to fight for it, and their struggle for happiness will be an ongoing one. Nora does what she has to do and her innocence is endearing and brings out every protective instinct i have. She is a character that makes you want to tuck her under your wing and shelter her from any deluge.

Gwyn McNamee provided another twisting, intriguing and unputdownable story. Their rare and deadly story was unforgettable and hard to match. A pleasure to get to know was this cast, and getting to know more is a real addiction for me. 5 stars.
