Laura: Not sure if I missed it but is The Hurricane by RJ Prescott on the list? The hero is a boxer and the heroine is a college student struggling to cope with her abusive past.Both characters are living in poverty. It’s a wonderful romantic story and is one of my favourite books from 2015. I highly recommend it.
Marion: I’m currently reading The Hurricane by R.J Prescott, fans of Beautiful Disaster this is one you need to get to pronto! (I’ll even go out on a limb and say this one has got me more hooked than BD)
Kel: The Hurricane is amazing
Shunda: Just finished The Hurricane and OMG!! I died. It had such a BD feel to it. Read through the night and was a zombie for work. SOOOOO worth it!!
Rosheen: Thanks for the Hurricane recommendation . Great read! Usually avoid NA like the plague (no offence to anyone who reads and enjoys them, just not my thing). But very compelling read.
About book #1:
Emily McCarthy is living in fear of a dark and dangerous past. A gifted mathematician, she is little more than a hollow, broken shell, trying desperately to make ends meet long enough to finish her degree.
Through an unlikely friendship with the aging, cantankerous owner of an old boxing gym, Em is thrown into the path of the most dangerous man that she has ever met.
Cormac “the Hurricane” O’Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the misfire. He’s never been knocked out before, but when he meets Em he falls, HARD. Unlike any other girl he’s ever met, she doesn’t want anything from him. Just being around her makes him want to be a better person.
They are polar opposites who were never meant to find each other, but some things are just worth the fight.
