REVIEW-RIDING THE STORM (ACRO #1) BY SYDNEY CROFT
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"Me", he murmured, his voice vibrating through her like some sort of secret trigger, because suddenly, she was coming, and he was saying, "Only me, bebe, only me."
Meet Remy, aka "Storm". An ex SEAL who stands 6'3" with piercing blue eyes. He's striking. Literally. Remy has a gift, or a curse to hear him tell it. He has an affinity to weather. He can summon a lightening strike, bone jarring thunder, rain, hail. He is literally a force to be reckoned with. While Remy can control nature, nature too can control Remy. The storms both inside and around him, takes ahold of his sex drive. A sex drive that most women can't keep up with but are more than willing to lose themselves trying.
He's from deep in the bayou of Louisianna. Those who are familiar, know that means he's got that sexy, Cajun drawl as he slips from English to Cajun French and back again. Yum.
Haley is a parameteorologist sent in by a secret agency to test Remy's powers, to see if the rumors are true. She is to seduce Remy, lead him to trust her so that he will gladly come with her to this agency to learn how to control his gift, using it for the greater good. What Haley does'nt realize is this will be the hardest mission of her career. LITERALLY. hee.
Meanwhile, Charles, the leader of an opposing agency that wants Remy for all the wrong reasons, won't make things easy. He too is a force to be reckoned with and won't go down easy.
I loved the chemistry between Remy and Haley. The sex scenes were OFF THE CHARTS hot. Sex in the rain, storms all around, scorching! How their story unfolded and the bond they weren't initially aware of, nicely done.
While I love Remy and Haley, I have to say, another pair stole the show. Creed and Annika. The sexual tension between the two, so evenly matched. I hope those two get their own book down the line. Shower sex.....hot.
Loving this series!!
