Throwback Thursday - Taken by Storm by Tami Hoag

Author: Tami Hoag
First published in 1992 by Loveswept

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag comes this bittersweet romance classic about a woman who’s rebuilt her life—and her heart—after the disappointments of the past, only to find her carefully laid plans shattered by a knock on the door.…

I'll admit, I wasn't sure I was going to like Taken by Storm.  After reading the synopsis, I thought it was going to be an infidelity story, since Julia is supposed to be engaged when Storm comes back into her life.  I'm not a fan of those. But in the end, I enjoyed the book.  Julia isn't really engaged. She and the guy she is seeing have talked about it, but something has been holding her back from looking for a ring and setting a date. She hasn't even committed herself to a physical relationship with him. 

Yes, S.T. ( a.k.a.Storm) has walked away from her three times, but he is just too cute and so eager to get her back.  The lengths he goes to in order to profess his love for her are amusing. Anyone reading the book can see that they are really meant for each other. Sometimes, it just takes the other person time to grow up and be ready to commit. Along with all of his fans, I was rooting for S.T.   Having said that, I was happy that it took Julia a while to admit she still loved S.T. and was ready to start trusting him again. It made the story more realistic. I have read negative reviews for this one, but I thought it was entertaining.  Try it out and let us know your thoughts.
