They call him “The Tempest.”
England’s most feared heavyweight-boxing champion.
He despises the fame and glory, but it’s nothing compared to the hate he inflicts on himself. All he wants is to be left alone to live on his boat in misery.
When I line up for his autograph, it’s instant fireworks. But not the beautiful stars-shine-bright kind. He’s rude. Heartless. A ticking time bomb of rage.
Luckily, I’m not afraid to put a lit match to his fuse.
I upload a private video of him to my one-million-subscribers channel. The video goes viral.
The ex-Royal Marine nearly breaks down my studio door to flag me inappropriate…
…while I’m in the middle of a live streaming event.
I don’t tell him. I don’t switch off the camera. I keep recording, secretly playing to my audience. He should have checked if the camera was rolling, right?
It should be a shipwreck from the moment the storm hits.
And then … it isn’t.
Our attraction is painful, undeniable, and it’s like I am Eve and his lips are the apple, and damn if his tongue isn’t the snake.
I am the only girl who can put this broken man back together again.
But he knows the secret he is keeping will tear us apart. He knows it’ll force my hand to break ties with the only family I have left in the world.
But once The Tempest, the man with the iron heart, falls in love … he’ll crush anyone who dares to take me away from him.
I have no choice but to go down with his ship.
Hook, line, and goddamned sinker.
The Tempest is a contemporary romance story of love, comedy and treachery.
No cheating. No OW/OM. Standalone. HEA. 18+
I really did enjoy following Lenic and Felicity’s story. I like how Felicity is a vlogger and we get into her head a bit when she sees an opportunity for a video. Felicity’s character really made me laugh at times.
But deep down you can tell both Lenic and Felicity have something dark in their history. We don’t find the reason until later in the book.
I like how the story goes beyond the viral video of Lenic in the shower.
I was bit confused at first with the chapter titles, because the author quotes the characters. The book starts in Lenic’s perspective, in the prologue, but then the entire book follows Felicity’s perspective. I thought it was switching back and forth because the chapter headings had the characters’ name beneath the quote, but I caught on eventually.
Lenic’s perspective does come back later on in the book, and I like how he is portrayed. I managed to overlook those details and I remained focus on knowing the story, learning more about the characters. At times I couldn’t stop my imagination going Viral especially the charity car wash event with Lenic’s friends stripped to the waist
I will say there is a lot of sex in this story, but it was used to show the growing intimacies in and out bed. All in all an enjoyable read, I loved the epilogues. It was a very intense relationship with an HEA
I received a arc of this book in exchange for an honest review
