Title: Out of the Storm
Author: J.B. McGee
Genre: Romantic Suspense
There's an eerie calm before the storm,
And my best friend is in the direct path of the hit.
I have to protect him, no matter the cost.
He's like a brother to me.
I'll do whatever it takes to make sure he's safe.
Even if that means being pulled into the vortex that is Jules Hemingway,
A sexy, fiery tempest that has the potential to destroy everything in her wake.
All I want is to dive in, take my chances.
But first, I must complete the mission—save my friend.
Though it may mean losing what really matters,
The only woman worth drowning for.
Something's amiss—strange and ominous,
And I can't quite put my finger on it.
When Theo Katawhateverhisnameis comes thundering in,
It's like lightning to my heart, my body, my soul.
It's a shock—a jolt, as I realize my life is a scam,
A scheme with no winners.
I'm in over my head, treading in a sea of lies,
Leery of whom to trust,
Only looking to protect myself, my heart.
Together, we're wreckage, debris,
but are we collateral damage in this perfect storm?
Out of the Storm is not my first J.B. MGee read but this story is completely different from what I am use to from her and did not expect this sexy suspenseful read. McGee surprised and kept me on my toes with the twist and turns of this story.
Theo Kataigida is a very rich businessman who finds himself trying to save his best friend from a financial catastrophe even if it means using himself and his own money to set forth a plan and see it through. The only problem was who could he trust and what even seems real. Theo is one spine tingling Greek Adonis who gets lost in the twister that is Jules and the lies that surround her.
Jules Hemingway's life has been turned upside down, she finds herself in the middle of a scam. The only thing that seems to feel right to her is the mystery giant that is Theo Katawhateverhisnameis, one minute he is a stranger and the next they are connected mind, body and soul. Will the feelings that she has for Theo be enough to get her through the biggest storm of her life or will the lies be to much for both of them to weather?
OMG!!! Out of the Storm will have your emotions at the highest peak, I at times felt myself gravitating to pulling my own hair out. The sexual chemistry between Jules and Theo is felt from the beginning, I'm pretty sure I even felt it. The characters Marco, Charlie, Jake and Ana are such an added bonus, I had more of a hate relationship with them. I am pretty sure Jules will frustrate most readers but Theo...oh hell no! He is dominate alpha male personified, in my opinion he alone deserves five stars. This is a perfectly written 5 Star McGee read!
"Passionate. Angsty. Mind-blowing. A masterful tale of intrigue, lust, and jaw-dropping sex...Yep. It's one of my hottest reads this year." -Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal Best-Selling Author
J.B. McGee is a mother, wife, and the Amazon Top 100 author of the best-selling This Series. Amazon Crossing acquired the German rights to her debut novel, Broken. Heartfall, her coming of age novel about a bullied ballerina, is a #1 best seller in the Teen and Young Adult Performing Arts genre. Skipping Stones, a military romance about a young woman strongly influenced by her faith and her family all the while searching for her true love, is a #1 best seller in Women's Christian Fiction.
When J.B.'s not writing, she enjoys reading as well as watching and live-chatting her favorite television shows with her friends. Her favorite shows are Quantico, Blindspot, Grey’s Anatomy, The Bachelor/Bachelorette, Below Deck, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Scandal (mainly because of her love of Scott Foley).
Born and raised in Aiken, South Carolina, she attended Converse College and eventually earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education from The University of South Carolina-Aiken in 2006.
In college, she was told by her children’s literature professor she would be the one student from her class to be an author. McGee shook her head and laughed. But in 2012, over six years after that statement was made and after a love of reading had been reignited, she gave writing a shot. J.B. gladly ate crow when she emailed her first book to the above mentioned children’s literature professor thanking her and acknowledging the accuracy of her prophecy.
In 2011, it was discovered that not only do both of her children, but also she and her husband, have mitochondrial disease. Affecting 1 in 2500 people, it has no cure or treatments. Being a writer allows J.B. to care for her family’s unique needs while also providing a platform for raising awareness for this disease.
She is a hopeless romantic who loves to escape into fairy tales—some she reads and some she creates.
J.B. McGee and her family now reside in Buford, Georgia.
