In just a few short days Loriel has major concerns about her new job. First thought to be a dream career, she realizes the job she had so anticipated has placed a target on her back, and she will be lucky to come out unscathed. Without the help of Givanni, her boss’s nephew and the CEO at Shellbrook, her fate would have been sealed a few times over. But his world, though frightening, brings with it breathtaking sights, adoring family, and stronger feelings than Loriel wants to admit. And although making it out alive had seemed impossible, it becomes desperately more important to make it out together.

After finishing Storm Front, I was divided if I liked it or not. It had some high points such as the pulse pounding action in chapter 1-5. Through these chapters, the reader will ride shotgun to car crashes, gun battles, a kidnapping, and a break-in.
However, with that said, the story becomes a bit stagnant when Givanni and Loriel venture to Italy under the pretense they are in a relationship. It’s no wonder his family isn’t buying the bull they’re attempting to sell. He spends little time with her and doesn’t act like a man in love. Basically, he treats her like a friend — at times more like an acquaintance. I think that’s why Loriel was stunned speechless when Van admitted he was in love with her in the final chapter.
Despite the humdrum of chapter 7-14, things do pick back up in chapter 15.
I would like to say Storm Front ended with everything resolved but that’s not the case. D.L. told me plans are in the works for this to become a series and, with a confusing ending, I can see why a second book is highly needed.
As for Van and Loriel, girl you should have went for Max. He is such a doll and a more likable character.

I'm not so sure if I would want to read this Tater . You need to sell this book to be because that rating I'm not happy
My opinion might not be your opinion on it so you might give it a higher score. You never know unless you read it, right?
This is how I feel with reviews Kam….others may have diff opinions….I have friends, I won't touch what they read, and vice versa!!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
There's s book for everyone so maybe this book will strike your fancy.
Okay Kam it is now my quest in life to better describe Givanni in the sequel – because trust me he's the man of your dreams!!! ☺️
And I was trying to portray the confusion of getting to know (or think you know) another person – maybe I was a little heavy on the confusion?? LOL!
I absolutely appreciate the input and will keep this in mind as I write.
I'd be happy to take a gander at the ARC and give you my thoughts. Let me know.
Have a marvelous day!!
