The Mighty Storm (The Storm, #1)

The Mighty Storm (The Storm, #1) - Samantha Towle I enjoyed the beginning of this book. It surprised the hell out of me that I did seeing as I have read the same story/ variations of this story quite a few times and I didn't enjoy it then. I didn't enjoy it when the story was called Thoughtless and I only slightly enjoyed it when it was called Love Unscripted. I will give the author that, it was better, in my opinion than other similar books. What bums me out is that I am tired of reading the same old story over and over again. These guys are all the same; they have tattoos, are in a band, use the word fuck far too much, have a possesive streak when it comes to their girls, have fucked a million girls with no commitment but as soon as they get with or even just spot this particular girl, all the shit from the past is over and they only want her. Sigh. That being said, I was really excited about this book and feeling really happy about it until Tru and Jake actually got together, then it all went downhill from there. Jake seemed like an awesome guy who had major potential but then they had to go and sleep together and he became an obsessive, controlling a-hole. I'm sorry but it annoys the crap out of me when characters act like they will absolutely die without each other or the fact that Jake made it seem like everything went wrong with his life, including drug induced meltdowns but now that Tru is in his life, he won't go down that road again. My point was made when he did, infact, go down that road again. Also, he acted like he was going to die when they were to be apart from each other FOR A WEEK. Geez, really? I think it is just the military spouse that comes out in me with things like this, but damn. There is something wrong with you if you can't be happy by yourself. You really don't have any business pulling someone else into your crazy if you think your whole life will fall apart without that person. Being a viable human being and having a mature relationship starts with being good with yourself. It's just a big gripe of mine. All this being said, I can see the appeal of this book. I hate the fact that I am such a nit picker but I just can't let certain things go and among the things that bothered me was the many mistakes in the book. I found so many and I am nowhere near perfect with grammar (as you can see with this and my other reviews). That being said, I am sure this book will go on to sell a bunch of copies and people will rave about it, that's fine, I will just be out there scouring the universe for something new and original and try to stay away from the same ol story repackaged with a shiny new cover and name. 2.5 Stars
