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..

Author: Sophie Andrews

SYNOPSIS

Growing up, Sophie carried a terrible secret. She was her father’s slave, in the most horrific ways imaginable. At just a few months old she was adopted by a couple that seemed comfortably off and perfectly respectable to the outside world. But behind closed doors, Sophie’s childhood was a living hell. Her father spent the next decade grooming her for abuse and when Sophie’s mother left for good, that very night, he told Sophie that from now on she would sleep in his bed. Unable to cope, Sophie spiraled into suicidal misery. She began to self-harm to try and escape the agony. But one day she went too far and at 16, ended up in a psychiatric unit. It was here that she finally confronted the horrors of home and began the painful journey of rebuilding her life. A phenomenally courageous woman, Sophie now works for the Samaritans and helps other young people in need. Harrowing yet compelling, this is a searing and truly inspirational account of overcoming the worst abuse and self-harm.

REVIEW

This is a book that will pull at your heart strings from the very first page to the last one, the character development is done exquisitely, the story line has twists and turns that just make you want to cry with every page you turn. The author has 2 more books that i shall discuss later, but this one is by no doubt the most horrifying and heartbreaking one.

I strongly suggest for all to read this book, even though it will have you in tears most of the times, the ending is perfect and worth every page. Truly a page turner.
