5 out of 5: Riding the Storm by Sydney Croft

By Sydney Croft

Book Blurb:

A storm’s rage. A woman’s desire.
A man with the power to set them both free.

He can summon lightning at will. Emerge unscathed from the center of a tornado. Strip a woman down to her barest defenses through the sheer force of his sexuality. He’ s gorgeous, dangerous, and the target of parameteorologist Haley Holmes’s latest mission. Haley has been dispatched to the Louisiana bayous to investigate the phenomenon known as Remy Begnaud–a man with a gift he never wanted: the ability to control a storm’s fury. But even a woman trained in bizarre weather phenomena has no defense against the electrifying power of the ex—Navy SEAL...a power his enemies would kill to control.

With her agency monitoring their every move, Haley’s job is to seduce Remy, gain his trust–and help him harness his extraordinary gift. But who will protect her from this voracious lover who’s introducing her to a new world of erotic thrills—a man who grows increasingly insatiable with each new weather event? Haley knows a big storm is approaching—and with it will come unexpected delights. But so, too, will the storm unleash her greatest fears: an enemy bent on destroying Remy. And her worst fear of all—falling in love with this magnificent man, then having to betray him.

Review by Scarlett Roberts; rating 5 out of 5

I adored this book. I adored it so much I actually couldn’t stop reading and went ahead and read straight through the 2nd book in the series before taking a breather to write this review. First off, I love comic books and graphic novels, and I love my romances and erotica. This COMBINES those things, and it’s just freaking fantastic. It’s like X-men meets erotica with a great storyline all wrapped up in a neat little package (with a big red bow!) and placed under my Christmas tree just for me.

There is the main storyline going on between Remy and Haley, and there are also some other minor subplots featuring characters I can only assume we’ll be getting more involved with as the series progresses. I liked having these glimpses of what might possibly be in the future. Remy and Haley were great together. And HOT. So, so HOT. Remy is a great alpha-male type, ex-Navy Seal, rough around the edges but very loving in his own way. Haley was not a “damsel in distress” heroine. That girl knows how to take care of herself, and I really appreciate that in female characters.

This book as it all…A great ORIGINAL concept, fabulous writing, awesome characters. What else do you want? Go get it, read it, love it. My rating: 5 out of 5.
