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

By Gwyn McNamee

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!!

Stone Sober: (A Hawke Family Novel) (The Hawke Family Book 3) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Jenni Bishop

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

Stone Sober: (A Hawke Family Novel) (The Hawke Family Book 3) Gwyn McNamee was not what I expected, it was better. Gwyn is a great story teller and this is one of my favourite series. I have loved the other two books in the series but this is my favourite so far, they just keep getting better and better, if that is even a possibility. Gwyn weaves lots of twists and turns that will have your heart pumping and emotions running all over the place. There are laughter and tears, sorrow and doubt, confusion and heartache, love and heartbreak and that is just naming a few. It is a little dark as well and that just adds to the excitement, drama and thrills.

Stone is the baby of the family and has just returned home but he is not so sure that is a good thing. He has a secret that only one other person knows, a secret that has led him down the wrong path, a secret that he uses vices to try to escape from. Now he has found a new vice and knows he needs to stay away or ruin a beautiful thing.

Nora is smart and sexy and turned away from a brilliant career to strip but no one knows her reasons and no one understands but it is the perfect job, it is freeing and that is just what she needs for now. But when she finally finds out who hides in the corner, in the shadows her life will forever be changed.

Trust me this is an amazing story and you will not want to put it down. It is hot and dark and forbidden and oh so good.

Tortured Skye (Hawke Family, #2)Tortured Skye by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tortured Skye (Hawke Family Novels) is the second book in the series by Gwyn McNamee and is an erotic contemporary romance that will set you on fire. I love anything Gwyn writes and the Hawke Family series is fast becoming one of my favourites. The emotions that Gwyn instills in her stories has the ability to grab you from the very first page and keeps you titillated right until the very last word.

Skye Hawke has lost one half of herself and is still trying to comes to terms with it by hiding her pain behind her stubborn and hot headedness and down right rudeness. She also has a secret, a secret she has had since she was sixteen years old.

Gabe Anderson doesn’t do commitment, but now that he has noticed his best friends little sister is no longer little, he has more to lose which ever way he turns. Love the woman and lose the best friend or keep the best friend and lose the woman.

Gwyn McNamee is a must on everyone’s to READ list. I can’t wait to demolish her next book.

Building Storm: (A Hawke Family Novel) (The Hawke Family Book 4) Gwyn McNamee just blew me out of the water. I thought Stone was my favourite and now Building Storm has surpassed my expectations. Gwyn is an amazing writer and and I always know I am in safe hands when I read one of her books. This story I devoured in one sitting, even though I had to get up for work the next day I absolutely could not set it aside. I was so wrapped up in the story time was gone before I even came up for air. Gwyn knows just the right ingredients to weave together to give you an experience you will not forget. Your heart will be pumping and jumping out of your chest and your emotions running all over the place. I felt as though I was the one in the story as I felt it all. I laughed, I cried and sobbed, my sorrow and love was real, my heart broke and at times I could not breathe.It is as beautiful as it is dark, it is as wonderful as it is sad and it is raw and powerful. The complexity of the characters and their lives and the plot is a work of art.

There will be no spoilers on this review as the story speaks for itself. There are a multiple of other books I can see from some of the other characters in this series and I really, really can not wait to see where Gwyn may take us.

This is the most amazing story that no one should miss. It is brilliant.

I can’t imagine living someone but not going after them. To fear that your relationship would end friendships. So many different emotions you have to process just o find your happiness. Skye has lost someone close to her heart and cures herself with liquor. Gabe is running from nightmare and doesn’t want to ruin lives. But this feeling he has won’t go away even when he gets what he wants. This story captures you by giving you that guy who will do anything for the girl. The story as capture you by telling you about the girl who just needs something more to get out of the dark.

STONE SOBER by GWYN MCNAMEE

Five Stars

I’m at a lost for words. Stone is omg I can’t even think after reading this story. Let’s just say Nora is a lucky woman. Though Stone feels like he his the lucky one. Nora had a lot going for her and felt untrue to herself. I’m so glad she stopped and thought of her own happiness before she continued her path. I understand wanting to make everyone else proud and giving them what they want. But at the end of the day if you aren’t the one enjoying it was it worth it? This mob is really going in on this family and I’m crossing my fingers that they keep coming out on top. I hope my next relationship with a family lime this. They stick together and don’t let people get in their way.

Five Stars

Savage is dreamy. A bad boy with so many soft spots. I couldn’t seem to put this one down. Dani was so out spoken and unapologetic. I enjoyed watching them together. Reading their growth. Not only as individuals but as a couple. Savage had to trust and Dani had to give patience. The author really has something going with this family. The characters are all string and independent but better together. I couldn’t live looking over my shoulders. I would die from stress. But these characters handle it well.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Building Storm by Gwyn McNamee a Squall of a five-star read. This is the forth novel in the Hawke Family series and they are best when read in order, they each have such powerful and gripping story lines, I do think that Building Storm may just be the best, after I had read the previous novels and loved them and I feel that getting to know Storm and watch her story develop just made this one so much stronger and more compelling. I don’t want to say too much as I would hate to give spoilers as there are a few points that you will feel like the rugs been pulled from under you and you will just adore it!! I love how Gwyn McNamee brings the city of New Orleans to life in the pages almost like another character along with the buildings and the description they will blow you away, the passion and drama written between the pages are simply sublime, if you haven’t read this series then you need to go buy them all, it’s such a powerful series that you can’t miss.
