I guess by now I should know enough about loss to realize that you never really stop missing someone-you just learn to live around the huge gaping hole of their absence.

Title: Jet
Author: Jay Crownover
Series: Marked Men #2
Age Group/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Synopsis: A year after rejecting Ayden’s offer of a hookup, Jet can no longer deny the sexual frustration between them. They agree to a friends-with-benefits arrangement, but their emotions and their pasts complicate what’s intended to be a simple arrangement.
What I Liked: Let’s get the superficial stuff out of the way first, shall we? This book is hot. Smoking hot. Like, feeling a little embarrassed to read it when someone else is in the room hot. Ayden and Jet have more chemistry than any literary couple I’ve encountered in a long time, and it is a blast to read.
And I liked Jet in general. Although he has issues with his family, he is a legitimately good person. It shows in his struggle to protect his mom, in his efforts to mentor fledgling bands, and in the way he cares about Ayden. I get really tired of men in novels not being sure if they love the woman they’re with, so I liked that Jet is pretty on the ball with recognizing his feelings and owning them.
Plot-wise, Crownover does a much better job of pacing and managing tension in this novel than in Rule, the first of the Marked Men series. This time, the twists weren’t as easy to guess, so there was an actual element of surprise behind them.
What I Didn’t Like: Ayden spends huge amounts of time wallowing in angst about her past. Sure, she left terrible things behind in Kentucky, but after awhile her introspection wore on my nerves. I found myself gritting my teeth at her and wanting to yell, “Use your words!” I wanted her to actually trust Jet and her friends, people who had proven themselves trustworthy, and to be up-front with them about her issues rather than letting them fester. I know that needed to happen to build conflict and tension, but she drove me crazy.
And I continue to hate these book covers. I hate them so hard.
Favorite Quote: "Aren’t all the best songs about a girl? It doesn’t matter if it’s metal, if it’s country, if it’s blues or rock and roll; all the song that make us remember and make us ant to sing along are abotu the best kind of girl, the kind you can’t live without but can’t ever get ahold of."
Final Verdict: Four out of five stars. It wasn’t amazing, but it was pretty close.

Everyone wears masks. They come in all different shapes and sizes. The only problem with trying one on — is that it fits. How easily we fall into the trap that we don’t have to be who we really are. How easily we convince ourselves that we need to cover up what we were born to be. It’s a tragedy — that fear keeps us from our destiny. It’s hell — when the person you were created to be — is covered up by some cheap imposter.

original title: The Mighty Storm (The Storm #1)
genres: adult fiction, erotic romance, contemporary, music
characters: Jake Wethers, Trudy Bennett
my rating: ★★★★✩ 
my review:

Jesus fucking Christ! I don’t ever in my life again want to read the words
I think.
I don’t know.

in that exact order. I’ll pull all my hair off my scalp if I see them again or hear them for that matter. In this book those words appeared so many times I couldn’t even count that high. That’s right. I tried counting them. I failed. I was seeing red every single time I stumbled upon them. I was infuriated.
I got the impression she really didn’t know what she wanted most of the time and it was just making me majorly pissed at her. Because if I was in her skin I would have known what I want and that would have been Jake, always. And all the times she was processing things in her mind I only saw
"Yada yada yada…I think. I don’t know. Yada yada yada…" or "I wish blah blah blah…No I don’t." Really now Tru? Couldn’t you be a little bit less indecisive at every-fucking-damn-thing that runs through your head? It would have been much less painful for my nerves getting to the end of this book.

Anyway, aside the frustration I’ve gotten through while reading this book, it was mainly a good story, a good book. Despite I disliked Tru’s character, I fell in love with Jake’s. I mean hellooou he is a fucking rock star - a hot one for the record - stunningly beautiful, covered with tats tattoos are my kink, Jesus what a kink they are, I need to do one myself sometime in my life and has the widest heart possible and the hugest dick, when I stared talking sizes and he waited for his true love all his life.

“I love you,” he repeats. “I’ve only ever loved one girl, Tru – and that’s you. It’s always been you. I loved you from the moment I knew how to love.”

OK, he had his downs too but it was only understandable considering the fact he was a broken person after all.

original title: Wethering the Storm (The Storm #2)genres: adult fiction, erotic romance, contemporary, musiccharacters: Jake Wethers, Trudy Bennett my rating: ★★★★★ my review:
Wethering the Storm was by all means one of my favorite reads so far. It was much better than The Mighty Storm, more pleasant to read. I loved every word of it.
The few chapters written in Jake’s pov helped me to get the bigger picture of this story, helped me to understand his character and I fell more in love with him - if it’s even possible. I felt his love and desperation for Tru and I felt the self-destructive force always on the edge ready to break through. He wasn’t kidding when he kept saying that Tru was his everything. She really was. His anchor, his reason to live, the light at the end of the tunnel. He bleeds her, he breathes her, he exists because of her.
“There isn’t anything I won’t do for you, Tru. Nothing I won’t do to make you happy. What I feel for you…it’s limitless. There is nothing before or after you. There is only you.”

Jake once said on stage that Jonny was the mighty in their storm, and now I see that Jake is my mighty storm. He’s broken and complex, and no one knows him like I do, or ever will. He needs me. He’s my storm to calm. And I’m going to spend the rest of my life doing just that.
