**I received an ebook of Hurricane Kiss from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**
Summary by Goodreads
For sixteen-year-old Jillian McKay, the threat of Hurricane Danielle means a long car ride with her neighbors–including River Daughtry, the former star quarterback of Harrison High. The guy who was headed to glory until suddenly he disappeared to a West Texas juvenile detention center. Once cocky and flirtatious, he’s now silent and angry. When their evacuation route is gridlocked, River is the first to recognize the danger they’re in. Together he and Jillian set out to seek shelter in their abandoned high school. As they wait out the storm, they confront the past and realize survival is about more than just staying alive–it’s about fighting for yourself.
After reading some fairly intense books lately, I needed to read something easy. Hurricane Kiss, was perfect to keep me going on my reading rollercoaster. I don’t think this will win many awards, but Blumenthal writes a fast paced story with the mystery of River’s past intertwined with some romance . I loved the tension between the two main characters – an obvious spark of forbidden lust – as they seek shelter in the midst of Hurricane Danielle. Jillian and River learn things about themselves and each other that they may have never discovered had they not been thrown together in this storm. The author brings these completely opposite characters together and gives hope that they will survive and their destiny can change. If you are a fan of Simone Elkeles or Colleen Hoover, check out Hurricane Kiss!
