Blown Away by Brenda Rothert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Drew McGovern was all ready to start her new life with her fiancee when she gets the devastating news that Colby was killed while helping someone stranded change their tire on the way home from his storm chasing job. Picking herself up after the tragic loss she’s now trying to find herself and learn to live without Colby.
When Drew runs into one of Colby’s old storm chasing buddies and he invites Drew along she thinks it’s just what she needs to get out of the slump she feels she’s been in the past year since the loss of Colby. What Drew didn’t expect was to find herself extremely attracted to Aiden who was Colby’s best friend and also on the storm chasing team.
I have to admit when I read the synopsis for this book I already knew I’d be hooked just due to the setting. Forget any kind of romance going on but I’m one that is always fascinated with movies and books with the whole natural disaster story line. Blown Away doesn’t disappointed as the characters travel around chasing after tornadoes and putting themselves in danger throughout.
However, even without the setting I think I would have enjoyed the relationship developing between Drew and Aiden. There was already a history there between them and obviously both having lost someone close to them it was completely logical for the two to end up with each other.
Overall, a nice romance with likable characters and a great setting.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
