This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
She hasn't been living. He's looking for a way to forget it all.
My life went up in flames. All I'm left with is my daughter and ashes. The simple act of breathing is so excruciating, there are days I wish I could stop altogether. So I have no business being at the party, and I definitely shouldn't be in the arms of the handsome stranger. When his lips meet mine, he breathes life into me for the first time since the day the inferno disintegrated my world. But loving again isn't in the cards, and there are even greater dangers to face than trying to keep Landon McCabe out of my heart.
Running is my only option. I have to get away from Chicago and the betrayal that shattered my world. I need a new life-one without attachments. The vibrancy of New Orleans convinces me it's possible to start over. Yet in all the excitement of a new city, it's Storm Hawke's dark, sad beauty that draws me in. She isn't looking for love, and we both need a hot, sweaty release without feelings getting involved. But even the best laid plans fail, and life can leave you burned.
Love can build, and love can destroy. But in the end, love is what raises you from the ashes.
***Building Storm is the fourth and final full-length novel in The Hawke Family Series. While it is a complete story, it is NOT meant to be read as a standalone. The story of the Hawke siblings starts in Savage Collision and continues in book two, Tortured Skye, and book three, Stone Sober before reaching the plot in Building Storm. These stories all build on one another and are intertwined. They need to be read in order to fully enjoy and understand the plots and characters. ***

So I have done a bit of binge reading...I had only read Savage Collision before this book was released so could not read this one till I completed the other two and now I have a bonafide Hawke Family hangover and am so so sad that I don't have another to move on to. I love this family and all those that have come along and joined it. Each story is unique and has something different to offer but the one constant throughout is the family ties which is one of my favorite things in my books. Then of course there's the way this author twists these stories and you just sit there not knowing what is going to happen or when it's going to happen. This one had me lost on the impending twist, I usually have some idea of what might happen but this one threw me and for some reason I didn't see it coming till it was obvious.
My heart was broken in two at the end of Stone Sober and it didn't mend till quite a ways into this one. That's one of the reasons I love this author so so much, when I read her books I just know I'm in for an emotional ride and when that ride ends it always leaves me wanting so much more. I know this can't be it...There's more story to tell for this family especially with characters that have appeared back and you just know there's more drama ahead and I for one CAN NOT WAIT!!
Do not even attempt to read these books out of order...It will not work and besides this author is brilliant and you don't want to miss a single word :)
This was an emotional book throughout the story. This wasn't like the others that had it bits and pieces. You feel Storm's pain the whole time. Which is understandable with what she is going through. I felt so much for Storm, and I couldn't help but be happy when Landon was able to be there for her. Bits and pieces of the past come back, but I was still left on my toes wondering how it would all play out. I wasn't dissatisfied. This was an emotional rollercoaster, but it's worth the ride.
To get the fullest experience of this story you MUST read the other books, in order.
