I liked this story better than the first one but it was still a little rough I thought. Kind of slow and hard to follow. But the over story was good. I loved Alex and Madison, there love was hot. Couldn’t help but root for them, the secrets and lies kept me going and coming back for more. I can’t wait to read book 3 though!
Surviving the Storm by Virginia Wine is the second book in the Surviving Series and I think it may be my favorite so far. Alex was very appealing in the first book. In this book it his appeal is multiplied a hundred times.
Alex has a giant chip on his shoulder and we learn why it’s there. Horrible childhood memories have a horrible way of sneaking up on you when you least expect it. I love Alex’s relationship with his brother Ben. Ms. Wine captured the brother relationship so well.
Madison is an amazing woman and I’m so glad Theo found her and brought her into his life. She really impressed me and wish more young woman were like her. She seems to love with her whole heart and will do anything for those she loves.
This is a great series so far and looking forward to the next book.
Surviving the Storm, by Virginia Wine, is the second book in the Surviving series. This contemporary romance features Alexander Kincaid Storm III who was introduced as a supporting character in the first book of the series. In this story, Alexander has his work cut out for him and what he wants may not be as available as he wishes. The chemistry between Alexander and Madison is off the charts, though their paths are not easy ones. Virginia Wine continues this wonderful series, continuing to give the romantic feels, but at the same time giving the reader the needed drama and suspense to make this a worthwhile and thorough read.

Surviving the Storm was a great 5 star read and book two in the Surviving Series.
Don’t talk to me about wrong; I know wrong, I own it. I am a man of no scruples, no morales-and certainly no limits – Alex
We start out in the past with Alexander and learning some background on him and his family. We go to present day and of Alex thinking about his one night with his best friend Theo’s sister Madison and wanting more with her. And it was definitely a hot and steamy evening, but there was a huge unexpected twist the next morning. And then she was gone.
Madison is moving to California, she is a fashion designer and is working on her career. She will be closer to her brother Theo, Eden and him. She will be leaving her fiance in New York, yes fiance.
At a party that her friends were throwing for her she sees Alex and he’s in prime form and confronts Madison about her secret and was a complete jerk. Seeing him brought back some memories of their night together. Alex is determined to have Madison for himself and won’t stop until he does. Will Madison break off her engagement? Can they have a HEA?
I loved reading Madison and Alex’s story, I didn’t want to stop until I was done. You feel like your right there with them. Of course their journey had several twist and turns, and we discover that the fiance is someone that is abusive to Madison and makes things very difficult for her. The secondary characters added a great element to the story. If you’re looking for a great read with some hot and steamy moments I highly suggest this series. I can’t wait to read more.
Surviving The Storm is the second book in Virginia Wine’s Surviving series. I had devoured and loved the first book, Surviving Eden, and was excited about reading the second instalment in the series. I’m very pleased to add that I was not disappointed at all by Surviving The Storm. I would definitely suggest that you read the books in order as there are recurring characters and the storyline continues.
We were introduced to Alex and Madison in the first book and from the snippet that we had of the two of them together, I couldn’t wait to see what the author had in store for these two and boy was it a great read. This book has it all. Off the charts chemistry, great sex, suspense, great characters, action packed and a crazy ex determined to ruin everything. This book will take you on a fantastic journey with so many ups and downs, and twists and turns that you just don’t know what’s coming next.
I also loved that we got to see what Theo and Eden, from book 1, got up to. Yet again the author brings in new characters and gives you a little taste of what might be coming in the next book. I’m just so glad that I already have book 3 on my kindle just waiting for me to dive in and see what Virginia Wine has in store for these characters I’ve grown to love.
There I was thinking book 1 Surviving Eden was good, but then Virginia Wine totally throws you off by writing an even better book 2. Surviving the Storm is an incredibly captivating read filled with emotion, mystery, action, suspense, passion and much more. For the full experience of this amazing series, these books should definitely be read in order just so you can get the full feel of this series!
You will be left on the edge of your seat wondering what could happen with our main characters that you have instantly made a connection to!
Alexander and Madison’s story is captivating, compelling and thrilling to read, so much so you can’t put the read down until the very end! The emotions you get from the characters are raw and real as though you were there alongside them, but also both of these characters have such depth to them you can’t help but love both of them in some way.
Madison and Alexander have such an amazing connection and chemistry you couldn’t help but hope they got a HEA. It was great getting a further mention of Our main characters from Book 1 they fit into the story and blend Book 1 & 2 together.
This truly has been another incredible addition to this series, and I cannot wait to see how much further this author can take this series! She has outdone herself again and I cannot wait to experience book 3 Surviving Jordan! Until then do not miss this book!

Surviving The Storm by Virginia Wine
I have to say that I was gripped from the first page of this book till the very end. I like how the author
brings in the past conflict around the main character. I really enjoyed my first read from this author. I know that this is the second book in the series but I am famous for reading books out of order.
I really found myself lured into the Alex’s world. I found that the drama unfolded around the characters and it was like I was part of the world. I found the author’s way of writing the story really draws you in and you find yourself swept away in the drama. I really found myself routing for Alex. The way his past comes into play really adds to the drama. I really couldn’t put the book down as I wanted to see what would happen next. I will definitely be reading more from this author and I must really also read more of this series.
Surviving the Storm is book two in the Surviving Series by Virginia Wine. I just adored this story as it spoke to me in a totally beguiling voice. I was captivated, stunned and intrigued all at once, and it just got better from there.
Getting to know Alex and Madison was a plethora of various emotions and there are so many words to describe the essence and depths of this story. Arousal, bewilderment, chaos, danger, ecstasy, friction, gentleness, happiness, intensity, jealousy, karma, laughter, mystery, nervousness, opulence, passion, quirkiness, respect, serenity, trauma, ugliness, value, worthiness, yearning and zest for life. A whole alphabet of emotions and events. More than enough to keep a reader insatiably satisfied for hours. A story that is unpredictable and adventurous. 5 stars.
Surviving the Storm by Virginia Wine
Surviving the Storm by Virginia Wine is the phenomenal sequel in the Surviving Series! This is by far my favorite book by this author, I was intrigued by Alex’s character from his first appearance in book 1, so I was beyond thrilled when I started his story. I would highly suggest reading Surviving Eden, book 1, first as this book follows directly where it left off.
Alex and Madison’s story was captivating, thrilling, entertaining, funny, romantic and a true page-turner! I connected with both these characters early on and I felt really invested in their story and I’m so happy with how it turned out.
I would absolutely recommend this series to anyone looking for their next romance read!

Surviving the Storm is book 2 in the Surviving Series. This book focuses on Alex and Madison. There is so much suspense and action in this book. It is definitely the best in the series so far. Alex comes from money but he isn’t showy about it. Madison is an independent woman who is getting her clothing line up and running. We know from book 1 that Alex and Madison spent one night together and that she is already promised to marry Graham. So what happens next? You will have to read the book to find out! Theo and Eden are fairly prominent through out this book, so if you haven’t read book 1 you will want to.
