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?
"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
AMIE'S 5 STAR REVIEW
|OOOO the second she said Theo james I was like YES YES YES love a Greek God with a sexy alpha side !! This story was full of suspense and mystery but did not lack in the emotion and heat department at all. I thought I had it figured out but I was so very wrong !! i had 3 different scenarios going BUT what really went on was a complex version of 1 of my scenarios !! Why I could never be a writer LOL. There isn't much you can say without spoiling so here is a classic vague-view by me !!|
Charlie and Jules best friends since Middle School - they went through every stage of friendship from the simple to the complex to the benefits and then finally to the actual relationship !! Now they are partners in business and engaged BUT the love seems lost and Charlie has gone from the great guy to an almost abusive jerk. Very quickly we see that Jules is somewhat clueless to the dirty doings going on in her business. Who the heck can she trust ?? Not Charlie but what about Mystery Giant in all his sexy hotness and glory !! I think in a normal situation there would have been more resistance BUT when Jules is faced with lies , secrets and mistrust you may as well go with your gut and take advantage of the offerings !! Jules and Theo had a super hot and instant chemistry. We can think it is a means to an end but it may actually be the real thing. this is the beauty and agony of this story. You will question everyone and every move. I have to say there was times where I doubted Jules and Theo and that was rough. There are many players in this game and maybe you will have it all figured out BUT I do think JB did a great job of building the mystery and throwing things in to make you go HMMMMM LOL. In the end there will be happiness BUT who will have it ??
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.
