STORM (noun)—a turbulent disturbance; a disruption or dispute.
Jake Wethers’s life is perfect. He’s married to the woman he’s always loved, and they have three beautiful children. The Mighty Storm is still going strong, and his record label is thriving.
Jake has everything—a life he thought he would never have and one that he didn’t think he deserved.
Not so long ago, Jake’s life wasn’t perfect. The unexpected and untimely death of his best friend, Jonny Creed, sent an already out-of-control Jake spiraling down further.
Drug addiction. Alcohol. Women.
Jake was in the fast lane to following Jonny to the grave until Tru Bennett walked back into his life and changed everything.
But now, the past that Jake left behind has come back to find him. And what the past brings with it is going to be one of the biggest challenges he has ever faced.
“The Storm” is a novella for “The Mighty Storm”-Series and is as much Jake and True’s story as it is Jonny’s, Jake deceased bandmate, who we never met during the books. Please don’t proceed to read this review, if you haven’t read the other books in the series, yet, since it will then entail major spoilers for you.
“The Storm” takes place a few years after Tru and Jake’s wedding. They live happily with their kids in LA. Jake has everything he ever wished for, well – apart from his best friend, Jonny, who died much too young a couple of years ago.
One day, Jake receives a call, that changes EVERYTHING. Suddenly, he has a part of his best friend back and it threatens to jumble his whole life into mayhem.
Normally, I’m someone who skips novellas and “unnecessary” sequels of books, since I don’t like to have everything I’ve been through with the MC’s in the main novel in shards again – just because the author feels, there is more to say. But I was very curious for “The Storm” because of all the praises and recommendations I got for it even before it was published. So, I gave it a try… and boy, am I glad I did it!
Honestly, I never felt so bad finishing a book – but strange enough, it left me at peace at the same time! I cried buckets and smiled simultaneously. Yes – so I jumped into the emotional wringer by my free will. And it gutted me, but now it’s even better… Ok, I’ll stop wit the cryptic bullshit – if you loved the “Mighty Storm”-Series, you won’t want to miss out on that novella.
All in all, I rate “The Storm” with 5 stars and can recommend it to everyone that loved the “The Mighty Storm”-Series.
