The Healing by Summer Storm
Book One of The Engimas.
What an AWESOME debut story and beginning of a series from a new author! Summer Storm had my emotions all over the place! Be prepared to have a box of tissues near by at all times throughout this story, you’ll need it! The love story within these pages is intense! I canNOT wait to see what happens next in Book Two. This romantic paranormal story is an original, I’ve read a lot of paranormal stories but nothing like this. GREAT JOB!!
Tempest is a Sr. VP of one of the most prominent record labels, Whitehall Media Records. Although she prefers to stay home in the quiet woods where she built her home, her friends and co-workers Michelle and Donna make her go out to have some fun and listen to a new Hard Rock band in town playing at the Dark Wolf. Michele describes the band members as “walking sex on a stick”. Tempest has to agree once she sees them, however she feels an EXTREMELY strong connection instantly when she sees Cahan, it’s like her world shifts and something that’d been dormant awakens. Does he feel it too? Michelle was right, this band is awesome, and they ARE the definition of “walking sex in a stick”. Before heading to the after party, she feels another connection to a man with glowing green eyes, but it’s not as earth shattering as it is with Cahan. At the after party, Tempest decides to leave because she only came to see Achaean and he’s not there. But then she sees him on her way out with another woman straddling & grinding on him, she’s disappointed and leaves. But then she feels that calming and protected feeling she felt at the club as she walks out, definitely not Cahans electrical current.
Cahan, Tynan, Quinlan and Owain are the brothers that make up the band, The Engimas. Cahan the lead singer and drummer, is a century old Lycan. He used to love to be in front of the crowd, drew energy from them, now he hates it and doesn’t want to do it. Something’s missing, but he sticks with it for his brothers. Just before he gets to the stage he feels an electricity flowing through him, one of the 3 ladies at the table is THE ONE, the one that’ll either save or condemn him. While on stage preparing to get started he feels her gaze. When he looks over his shoulder and their eyes meet the electrical current that flows through him almost knocks him to the floor, his body is on fire for the one with fiery red hair. But now that she’s here, it means that Niall is too. His best friend growing up and half-brother, and the one he’ll have to kill.
So you have finally found each other, my brother. And so the battle begins*(direct book quote). As the new President of the record label at Whitehall Media, Niall has a way to build on the connection he formed with Tempest, at the club. But is it enough to win her, and his life?
Tempest must learn why she has to choose one of the brothers on her own. The Great Tree prohibits them from revealing too much information. Who will Tempest choose, Cahan- the stubborn pain the the A** that keeps secrets from her, or Niall- the one who promises to tell her as much of the truth as he’s allowed. She has feelings for both of these men, but which one will prevail with her heart? Why does Cahan hate Niall? Who else is hiding in the shadows, and what do they want? You’ll have to read The Healing to find out, but OH MY, it’ll so be worth your time! I not only received an ARC from IndieSagePR for a blog tour review, but I purchased a copy as well. Due to the sexual content within this story, this story is recommended for readers over 17.
~ “The three will save the One. The One will save the world.”
~ “Oh, God, please, I don’t need to feel any shittier than I do now.” Cringing as he grabs his side tighter. “Shake that thing at someone else please”
~ Looking up with tear reddened eyes, “We saw our mother Cahan. We got to see our mother. She was beautiful.”
~ “May the Great Tree bless them so that they may live long and rich lives.”
~ “I’ll be careful, Anfa. I promise. I’m a match burning down right now, and soon the whole damn box will be lit. I need your wetness to quench the fire.”
~ “You have my word…my brother.”
~ “Do you know what they say about feeding the wolf? If you feed the evil over the good what do you expect when it turns out to be evil?”
~ “I will make amends for my actions. If it means my life, I will pay the price. Please Great Tree spare her life and take mine.”
