Recommendations from Peggy for October 2014.

In order to bring some more variety to my blog, I have asked some of my bookish friends to tell about the books they have in the past month, and to give us a recommendation. Today’s post is made by Peggy from Belgium.


I have read 10 novels in the past month, and the 3 books I enjoyed the most are:

1. The mighty storm – Samantha Towle

2. Bad things – R.K. Lilley

The one I can recommend to all Aurian’s readers is:

Samantha Towle – The mighty storm

It's been twelve years since Tru Bennett last saw Jake Wethers, her former best friend and boy she once loved.
Jake Wethers, sexy, tattooed and deliciously bad lead singer, and brains behind The Mighty Storm, one of biggest bands in the world, left Tru with a broken heart when he moved from England to America with his family when they were both fourteen.
Sent to interview Jake for her music column by the magazine she works for, they are both unprepared for the sparks that fly the instant they reconnect. Only, there's a complication to their instant feelings for one another - Will, Tru's boyfriend of two years.
Then Jake makes Tru a job offer she can't refuse - travelling the world with him and his band. But taking the job means leaving Will behind, and being on the road with the band means spending an inordinate amount of time with Jake.
Is Tru strong enough to resist the delectable bad boy who once held her heart so completely, or will she willingly risk it all for one night with the worlds most notorious womanizer?

If I have to describe the books that I have read since my last review in one sentence I would say….‘hot, tattooed bad boy/man with a sexy body that A - can sing or B - has a very sexy Russian accent’. The only problem after reading that many books about bad, sexy men is…. what do you read after that?! So I just pick another book about a hot, tattooed bad man… I just can’t seem to get enough of them.

From the first moment I read about this book, I was intrigued by the story (and I love the cover). I really wanted to read this book and I wasn’t disappointed. The only regret I have is that I left it so long on my to read pile. That I waited so long to read it!! But so many books to read and so little time.

This book is about Tru Bennett and Jake Wethers. They met when little Tru and her parents moved next door from little Jake and his parents. They became best friends and one of their passions they shared was music. They loved music, love talking about it, listening to it and even playing it. Jake played the guitar and Try the piano. But then when Jake is fourteen years old, his stepfather gets a great job offer, the only problem with this offer is, is that the job is in America. That means that Jake and his family are moving from England to America and that’s when the heartache begins. Tru and Jake lose contact with each other. Twelve years pass and Tru now lives in London, she works for a magazine as a music journalist. She lives together with her best friend Simone and has a wonderful relationship with her boyfriend Will. But then for her job she has to interview Jake. Jake, who is now the lead singer of The Mighty Storm, one of the biggest bands in the world.

After meeting her again after so many years, Jake knows that he can’t let her go a second time so he finds a way to spend time together. He does it by giving her a chance to write his biography. Something that could give her career a big boost. But that means that she has to go on tour with Jake and his band, leaving her boyfriend behind. But what are a few weeks in a lifetime, right?! The more time Tru and Jake spent together, the more they remember what they once had. But Tru has a boyfriend back home, who loves her very much. It’s a very hard time for Tru. Who does she choose? Will or Jake? One thing is for sure, if she chooses for Jake, she chooses a life that will be very hard, because how do you live a life where everything you do is public knowledge and where all the women in the world want to sleep with your ‘boyfriend’. Yet, can she say goodbye for a second time?

After finishing this book I couldn’t wait to read the next book in this series, the second book in this series continues with the story of Tru and …... and I even felt more in love with this series. I couldn’t stop reading. I loved it even more that the first one. The second book was even more emotional than the first book.

Aurian: Thanks for the recommendation Peggy! This book sure has a lickable cover. Does it have a love triangle, sort of thing, or makes Tru a decision before she sleeps with bad boy number 2?

Is there anyone intrigued enough by this recommendation to want to read the book/series?

  1. I don't think I have heard of any of the 3 :) Will have to see if the library has it

    1. I hope this post makes you discover new authors to enjoy Felicia.

  2. Hi Aurian and Blodeuedd, to answer your question. Although something happens on the tour (when she’s still in a relationship with Will) I, personally, don’t think of it as a love triangle. Because she decides really ‘quickly’ who she wants to be with. Jake doesn’t give her much choice, he’s a little dominant.

    If you want to read Ivan from Roxie Rivera, great news you can find this e-book for free (on smashwords, amazon,....)
