The Hurricane by R.J Prescott

Blurb: 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.

A few Reviews by some readers:

“This was such a great love story! I haven’t read one like it in a while. The story was not something new. Broken girl meats bad boy fighter. Boy starts changing so he’s worthy of her. Girl starts living her life and putting herself back together. What I really enjoyed was how well written this book was and how relatable the characters where. They had a chemistry that you could fell a mile away.”

“The main characters Emily and O’Connell were literally the most adorable book couple ever. Both broken in their own ways and yet, they were just what each other needed to be whole again.”

“This book was amazingly good, one of the best I’ve read this year. I have to stay this blew my mind and heart away, for a debut novel it left me speechless and wanting more. This book made me realize how much I loved reading again and made my heart beat a little faster. This novel is one of a kind and I’m hoping we get more.”

Personally I love this book.. I advice you to devour it this very second..

Finding Mr Flood..

Author: Ciara Geraghty

My first time reading anything by this author.

SYNOPSIS

Dara Flood always said that the most interesting thing about her life happened before she was born. Thirteen days before she came into the world, her father walked up the road to buy a packet of cigarettes and never came back. Now Dara lives an uncomplicated life. She goes to Melvin’s for pizza on a Wednesday night with her friends. She has salsa class with her sister Angel on a Friday. And Saturday nights are usually reserved for her boyfriend. People might say that Dara’s life is predictable. But it’s safe, which is exactly the way she likes it. As for Mr Flood? Maybe Dara thinks about him from time to time. But not very often. She doesn’t see the point. Then Angel gets sick and suddenly everything changes. Now Dara urgently needs to find her father so she hires the scruffily handsome, failed-policeman-turned-private-investigator Stanley Flinter to help her. As Dara and Stanley set out in search of Mr Flood, Dara’s carefully ordered life begins to fall apart. But as she learns some truths about Mr Flood, and herself, she discovers that to let life in, sometimes you just have to let go…

REVIEW

I am always eager and ready to try out new authors and see what they offer.. “Finding Mr Flood” started off a bit too slow for my liking, i have to admit the first few pages i was a little bored, but being a trooper i pushed on because i knew it might turn out better as time and pages go on. This touching novel highlights the anguish of those waiting for a transplant. One phone call can mean so much to these families. With Geraghty’s flair as a natural storyteller, this novel has well-fleshed-out main characters and an engaging supporting cast from the reclusive elderly neighbor to Stanley’s macho policemen brothers. Offering a different take on looking for a “perfect match”. The characters are well formed, a bit slow to get to know, but in the end you manage to understand and sympathize with all of them in different ways.

Even though it was very touching and eventually i enjoyed it i do not think i will be reading anything else by this author.
