Love is worth fighting for.
Alexa Wolving has just one rule: never give a guy a second chance. That works just fine in the safe life she’s built. In the charming town of Willowdale, her day job as a librarian balances perfectly with her evening job as a black belt instructor. But when she attracts the attention of a stalker, Alexa’s carefully built world begins to crumble.
Drew Cosimo knows he broke Alexa’s heart five years ago when he took his first Ranger assignment and disappeared from her life. Now that he’s out of the army, he’s moving back home to Willowdale. He’s not looking for a fight, but making peace would be easier if Alexa hadn’t told the entire town he was a money-grubbing jerk. Despite the tension between them, Drew is quick to offer his protection when a stalker forces Alexa from her home.
As the stalker’s attacks escalate, Alexa and Drew are forced to face their painful past and the simmering attraction between them. They must fight to save each other before everything they care about goes up in flames.
“All things people do to recapture that moment just sours it ’til even the good times are remembered with pain.”
I accepted to review this book even though I was busy because the stalker thingy intrigued me. Yup, I’m always up for mysteries.
The Storm of Attraction is actually a quick read with less than 200 pages (Okay, I read it so slowly because I was on a slump and I’m busy with work 😅). I think the story took in just weeks? Things really did happen fast and I ended up craving for more romance and suspense. The writing is in third person so I knew what Alexa and Drew is thinking all along, especially on what they feel towards each other, but it still left me wondering on how they will act upon their feelings. The first time something happened to Alexa, I already guessed who the stalker might be. It’s still a bit thrilling though, especially the last part.
This book has a lot of potential. All in all, it is a good read but it really lacks on the chemistry and the suspense. But it’s good. ❤️
