Emily McCarthy is living in fear of a dark and dangerous past. A gifted mathematician, she is little more than a hollow, broken shell, trying desperately to make ends meet long enough to finish her degree.
Through an unlikely friendship with the aging, cantankerous owner of an old boxing gym, Em is thrown into the path of the most dangerous man that she has ever met.
Cormac “the Hurricane” O’Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the mis-fire. He’s never been knocked out before, but when he meet Em he falls, HARD. Unlike any other girl he’s ever met, she doesn’t want anything from him, but just being around her makes him want to be a better person.
They are polar opposites who were never meant to find each other, but some things are just worth the fight.

So The Hurricane literally blew me away. And I have to admit that I wasn’t really expecting much. But this book was a complete surprise, in a good way.

OK so it is not a new story. Bad boy meets good girl. They fall in love. Things happen. And it all works out for them. But this book was beautifully written and felt real and emotional. There were a couple of moments where I was so moved by this story that I had tears in my eyes. Think that says it all.

I was hooked from the start, despite knowing nothing about Emily and Cormac, and I was rooting for them, to not only succeed but to be themselves. And when the past starts to reveal itself I was hooked even more. Both broken in their own ways, they needed each other to make themselves whole again.

And you know that the book is well written and a good story when you finish wanting to read more by the same author.

The Hurricane was a pleasure to read and I honestly cannot wait to see what is in store next.
