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..

The Passage

AUTHOR: Justin Cronin

SYNOPSIS

First came a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility that unleashed the product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gave way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

As civilization swiftly crumbles into a primal landscape of predators and prey, two people flee in search of sanctuary. FBI agent Brad Wolgast is a good man haunted by what he’s done in the line of duty. Six-year-old orphan Amy Harper Bellafonte is a refugee from the doomed scientific project that has triggered apocalypse. He is determined to protect her from the horror set loose by her captors. But for Amy, escaping the bloody fallout is only the beginning of a much longer odyssey—spanning miles and decades—towards the time and place where she must finish what should never have begun.

REVIEW

This is not the kind of book i usually read, but i like to try out new genres so i started with this one. The book is set in a make believe place but the characters are very well developed and it keeps you interested and you do not see the twists and turns that sneak up on you through out the book.

The story line is alright, but i believe it could have been better, i particularly did not enjoy the ending, i felt it left many questions unanswered needless to say though, i did enjoy the book. I would say try it out and expect great surprises. 🙂
