Ace McAllister used to be what Greer Patrick lived for. Now ten years later, he’s how she stays alive. Caught together outside during an F-3 tornado, they shield each other from the wrath of the storm. But, with their sizzling reunion, is Ace’s truck the only thing that’s blown away?

Review: After reading the blurb for this book I was excited and thought it sounded like something that was right up my alley. Despite being disappointed to learn it is only 17 pages long I still had an open mind when I started reading. The author tells a great story but it was just too short to be developed properly. There was too much plot involved for only a few pages. I didn’t feel a connection with the characters.

I’m sorry to say but there were a few parts that had me rolling my eyes. They take shelter from a tornado in an underpass. Being from the Midwest, at a very young age we are taught to never ever take shelter in an underpass. Also, sex under a tarp with a tornado and hail stones large enough to bust windshields blowing all around them! How about when Ace pulls Greer into the pool, she gets mad, they have sex and presto we have a happily ever after ending.

This story really does have the potential to be so much more than what it is. It’s way too short and underdeveloped. The author has a great writing style and I would be interested in giving another (longer) book a try.
