Marilyn Ellis is finally putting her life back together. The domestic abuse she suffered may be labeled textbook by therapists, but it’s the parts she’s never told anyone that haunt her.

She refuses to get trapped in that hell ever again.

Former Special Forces soldier turned rancher Noah Dempsey is more than capable of training the delicate single mom in moves and tactics that will help her feel safe. But his own tortured past makes him decidedly less qualified for anything more.

No matter how much her big eyes—and even bigger heart—draw him in.

However, when unexpected danger arrives in their small town, Noah knows this is a woman worth fighting for. Worth fighting beside. And he’s going to be the one to do it.

She needs a hero.
He’ll have to remember how to be one.

Storm weaves a few books together: we have Noah from the Bree and Tanner series, Trigger from Susan Stoker’s Delta series, plus lots of the linear tactical guys and gals! You don’t have to have read all these books, but it does help enrich the story.

Marilyn has had a rough time of late. She was physically abused by her ex, and she barely managed to escape with her two children and her life. Now, she is going to be the on site manager of the a new women’s shelter. It’s a perfect opportunity for her and her kids to get a second chance. Her kids are sweet and you can feel the damage the abuse to their mother took on them. Noah has his own demons (PTSD), but he is intrigued by Marilyn and he is adorable with her kids.

I think Noah and Marilyn are perfect for each other because they are so skittish. This oddly works! Noah can protect Marilyn and the kids, and they help him reintegrate with society and people. The story spans months so this helped me feel the relationship between these two was more genuine.

Storm brings a heap of danger too, so there is plenty of action. Overall, the story was heartbreaking, thrilling, sweet, and romantic. If you haven’t read Crouch before, but love Susan Stoker, you will enjoy Storm!
