After the Storm (Storm #1) - M.   Stratton

Well, that was a disappointment.  


Alexia “Lexi” Hanson moved across country and rebuilt her life after the attack that could have destroyed her. She enjoys her simple life in the beach cottage. Life was complete in her eyes.

Noah Matthews is Rock & Roll’s hottest star and on top of the world. After years without a break he finds the solitude he craves at his beach house. Enjoying his early morning coffee 
Noah was surprised to watch his neighbor sneak into his garden and start crawling around.

They never saw what was coming that fateful morning. Someone else was watching them. Someone who thought she belonged to him and would stop at nothing to have her.

Lives are changed forever when they meet amongst the blooms in his garden. Even when things seem darkest, there is always light After the Storm.


Nice premise, yeah?  Too bad it just didn't do it for me.  It wasn't poorly written, it had a good idea behind it, and the Troublesome Trio (think Blanche from the GG's on crack, times 3) totally rocked.  I just did not in any way, shape or form connect with either Lexi or Noah.  So I spent 90% of the book reading about a couple that I found to be meh, but I was biding my time waiting for the ending that I was sure is going to be good only to end up completely disappointed.  It was anti-climatic and left me with that well shit, that is what I get for trusting those 5-star beta reviews feeling. 


So, yeah. After the Storm didn't do it for me. It wasn't bad, it wasn't good but it did have it's moments.  I could totally read a book dedicated to the Troublesome Trio.
