Brit Constantine
Publication date: May 26th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

They call him “The Tempest.”

England’s most feared heavyweight-boxing champion.

He despises the fame and glory, but it’s nothing compared to the hate he inflicts on himself. All he wants is to be left alone to live on his boat in misery.

When I line up for his autograph, it’s instant fireworks. But not the beautiful stars-shine-bright kind. He’s rude. Heartless. A ticking time bomb of rage.

Luckily, I’m not afraid to put a lit match to his fuse.

I upload a private video of him to my one-million-subscribers channel. The video goes viral.

The ex-Royal Marine nearly breaks down my studio door to flag me inappropriate…

…while I’m in the middle of a live streaming event.

I don’t tell him. I don’t switch off the camera. I keep recording, secretly playing to my audience. He should have checked if the camera was rolling, right?

It should be a shipwreck from the moment the storm hits.

It is.

And then … it isn’t.

Our attraction is painful, undeniable, and it’s like I am Eve and his lips are the apple, and damn if his tongue isn’t the snake.

I am the only girl who can put this broken man back together again.

But he knows the secret he is keeping will tear us apart. He knows it’ll force my hand to break ties with the only family I have left in the world.

But once The Tempest, the man with the iron heart, falls in love … he’ll crush anyone who dares to take me away from him.

I have no choice but to go down with his ship.

Hook, line, and goddamned sinker.

The Tempest is a contemporary romance story of love, comedy and treachery.

No cheating. No OW/OM. Standalone. HEA. 18+

I received this book as part of the blog tour that Xpresso Book Tours is hosting. I have to say this book had me feeling all sorts of ways and thats not bad at all.

At first I was hesitant, it was different, different from the genres I usually read, different in the content, but something drew me in, something about this particular book had me enticed that I had to continue reading.

Confusion, pain, lust resinated through the pages, it was overwhelming, I had to continue, the more I read the more I dived into the book and fell in love with the characters, the plot, and the overall the way that the author was able to portray this story. I had never heard of this author before this book, but as of now, I am in deep. I want more.

I honestly think that this is a first for me. For a book to overwhelm me this much but again who doesn’t love a good read! If you haven’t read or heard of this novel, please pick it up you wont be disappointed at all.

I recommend this to any book lover such as my self, even those that stay to a particular genre most of the time, this is one book that will wrap you into its pages and characters.
