I never seen a Beta Wolf look so Alpha like, and let me tell that you that this book oozes possessiveness in every single page. Breaking the Storm had me confused at the same time it had me raging in anger and smiling like a goof, which is hard without going mental on the book but I restrained myself and managed be steady ...
Oh dear, this book is all about grudges, lies and unfinished business. There is Storm and Knox with a former, bitter relationship to repair, Knox lying his ass off (basically it doesn't count as a lie because he technically didn't lied... But he omitted... so it's lying by omission) and a bunch of wolfs filling the place with testosterone. And don't forget, two crazy ex's giving them both hell. This is a rollercoaster of emotions and you better prepare yourself before reading it.
I still don't know what to think of it, seeing as sometimes it was so frustrating that I wanted to threw the book down the stairs (well, it's an arc copy, so the Computer down the stairs...) but it was also so hot that I had to turn on the fan so I wouldn't melt... it gave me a bittersweet feeling. But, the character are so well constructed that you understand every single one, and the story is fast paced and keeps you intrigued at all times.
I loved that the book started off with an introduction to the Credence's tragic love life and bad luck in general. Which didn't made us go into the book so blind.
He grabbed my chin, pulling it up so far that our eyes locked. "Let's get one thing straight. I'm your mate. I protect you, not the other way around." His eyes narrowed. "You Credence women weren't protecting anyone but yourselves. You all used that curse as an excuse to keep every man at arm's length."
The female lead, Stormy or just Storm for friends and family, who also happens to be a mix of all sorts of Others breeds was kickass. If you take the thing of always repeating the same issue over and over again and the fact that she can't seem to get over her own problems, she's an amazing character. She's strong-willed and full of witty remarks that had me laughing non-stop. Storm's family owns a Escort's business so it was kind of funny to see a well-put-together woman being requested by her ex (which she dumped after saying a few nasty words..) to be a submissive Escort. Trust me when I say that this is awesome...
Knox is a wolf. But that's supposed to be a secret so FORGET I SAID IT... Well, it's a secret only to Storm because I think that a person with the minimal brain capacity could guess it the minute they meet at the party. But moving on, he was a proper wolf with all his arrogance and dominance. His role alone could fill the whole book, that's how big is ego is. But asides from that he did have a real good constructed background story that led to his personality. He has depth to his character that gave him credibility.
Light ( I can't get past those names, I just can't. They are so funny... Lightning and Stormy. ) was a hurricane of sex. That's all she talked about with great details... But her character was awesome as hell.
Luke: Fuck you!
I loved that the Credence's mothers were friskier than their own daughters. It was so funny to read about them, and I definitely want more of them in the next book!.
Breaking the Storm is all about relishing power, of learning the power of trust and giving in to your fate. It will keep you in your place until you finish it and it won't let you go. It's addicting and possessive, and so dreamy.
