Syleena Webster has been hurt by her mother's free lifestyle with men, but she maintains her romantic ideas about love and marriage. She doesn't doubt her perfect man is out there. Storm Hyde, however, gave up on love and a long time ago. The wealthy banker decided staying single is the way for him, so he hasn't dated the same woman longer than a few months in ages. He's totally unprepared for his reaction when his sister brings her gorgeous roommate, Syleena Webster, home for the summer. Once he gazes into her soulful brown eyes, an emotion he's never felt before hits him, and he sends Syleena running for the door. Five years later, they meet again. Will Storm be able to make Syleena understand the depth of the mistake he made?

She was not taken by storm, she was taken by a tornado. All in all, I think Ms. Rochelle could have done much better than this-in fact, I know she could have because I've read other books she's authored.

She was not taken by storm, she was taken by a tornado. After saying all this, I do like the book it is written beautifully, you can see the characters in your head and how they develop. I am just saying the romance part is a little sketchy. Regrettably, I will have to give this book a C-, which I feel is very generous indeed.

The way Marie Rochelle handled the storyline of these two characters and weaved in the secondary characters was great. I couldn’t put the book down. I read the book from cover to cover, well into the wee hours of the morning.

Taken By Storm: The Troubled Science, Policy and Politics of Global Warming is a 2002 book about the global warming controversy by Christopher Essex and Ross McKitrick. The authors argue that politicians and others claim far more certainty than is justified by the science. The authors also argue that public policy discussions have abandoned science and resorted to ad hominem attacks. Taken by Storm was one of two runners up for the 2002 Donner Prize for the best book on Canadian public policy.

I read this book 2 times. The first time I thought it was romantic. The second time I read it without stars in my eyes and I realized this man must have emotional issues and in need of medication. His mood changes on a dime. One minute he is about to cry the next he is raging mad. Does that sound like Prince Charming? He gets off on embarrassing people in a crowd. A he has a sense of entitlement that is out of this world. He is Alpha Man on steroids.

Spoiler Alert Spoiler Alert
From the moment she meets this man her life goes down hill. She loses her best friend and her self esteem is shot, she was working in a law firm making good money, by the end she is working the pole in a strip club and for worst part for me is when he gives her one hundred dollars for her virginity. Within this book, she is falls off a horse, gets shot, gets drugged and kidnapped, held hostage. I think she needs help to because she keeps taking him back. She was not taken by storm, she was taken by a tornado.

After saying all this, I do like the book it is written beautifully, you can see the characters in your head and how they develop. I am just saying the romance part is a little sketchy.

I really wanted to enjoy this book and had been looking forward to reading it. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book, and it was really a chore to finish it. These are the some of the main reasons for my dissatisfaction:

1. Neither the heroine nor the hero are likable characters. Syleena, the heroine, was weak, timid as a mouse at times and quite immature for her age (26 or 27). There was no natural progression of personality growth from the time she was an 18 year old until the time the story took place, some 8 years later. At times Syleena did exhibit some backbone, but it wasn't a lasting attribute. I always had the urge to slap her silly--not good!

2. Storm Hyde is the hero. First off, I thought the name was stupid. I know it was supposed to be clever, but it failed IMHO. Storm is an Alpha male to the extreme--the kind I hate. Storm manhandled Syleena relentlessly throughout the book, and she did nothing to stop it the majority of the time. Storm was mean, cruel, vindictive and at times malicious. Storm had issues stemming from his childhood that he should have been intelligent enough to have worked out at this stage of his life. Storm was constantly yelling or shouting and rarely had anything civil to say. As a rich bank executive, one would think that Mr. Storm Hyde would know how to think carefully before speaking, and that he would not blurt out things that he would later regret; however, our Mr. Hyde is an exception. Also, Storm developed a habit of calling Syleena "my little vixen." Who says that in today's world? It isn't sexy, it's just intensely annoying!!!

3. Syleena's BIG SECRET---this was such a convoluted mess and not worth all the fuss. First, in contemporary society, I just can't imagine that this would be an issue. Vivian was blackmailing Syleena, and Syleena had been paying Vivian monthly for 8 years in order to keep her silence. But there is a fatal flaw in this--Vivian supposedly didn't know where Syleena was living--couldn't find her. Syleena mailed her hush money to Vivian at the post offices in the areas where she was residing. Even a poorly skilled PI wouldn't have had much trouble locating her, after all he wasn't in hiding.

4. Near the end of the story, Storm exposes Syleena's secret in a very public way and said things to her that should never, ever have been said to the woman whom he claimed to love--the woman to whom he was engaged to be married. Syleena's humiliation and complete devastation was palpable, and I felt her pain. Storm's actions and his words were not only unforgivable, but they were unconscionable. No matter what his issues were, I cannot think of any conceivable reason why he would have done this to Syleena, and in such a public way. I would never have rekindled any sort of relationship with Storm--EVER. The events that occurred after this public humiliation were just too bizarre and totally unbelievable. But there was that HEA ending we all crave, even if I did hate Storm's guts. I was secretly hoping that Syleena would heal from her hurt, forget about Storm and actually find a great man to fall in love with.

5. Last, but not least of all were all those #@!&%[email protected]!! errors--- grammatical errors, wrong words, wrong tense, missing words, incorrect homophone (e.g., pair instead of pare) run-on sentences, etc. I just picked a couple of pages at random, scanned the pages and here goes:

a. ". . . Syleena was stunned by all the toys that covered the wall." [Shouldn't that be the FLOOR???].

b. [A child speaking to Syleena]-- "I like the color of you [sic] skin ...It's [sic] same color as the dinner table."

A few errors, even like these are understandable and can often be overlooked. What I cannot abide is when the errors are so numerous, they just overrun the story. I can't enjoy a book like that. I know that poor editing and proofing is often not the fault of the author, but ultimately, the work is judged in its entirety. Since this was a huge problem, coupled with the problems I saw with the story, I cannot, in good conscience, give this book a rave review.

While some of my comments might to some come under the heading of "pet peeves," I don't think they are misplaced here. All in all, I think Ms. Rochelle could have done much better than this--in fact, I know she could have because I've read other books she's authored. I will continue to buy Ms. Rochelle's books because I still think she is a talented author. Regrettably, I will have to give this book a C-, which I feel is very generous indeed.

Okay I chose five stars because I loved the ebb and flow of the book, I loved to hate Storm. Marie is one of my all time favorite writers and I won't give anything away, but if you want a book you can curl up and read on a weekend, you got it!!!

I loved this book. I read this book in one day because I could not put it down. The chemistry between Syleena and Storm burns out the pages. I love how hard headed they both are and equally matched. This book took me through a number of emotions. I felt drained yet happy after the last page; it was a sheer roller coaster ride. The love scenes will have you hanging on to your seat.

I love the fact that you are so lost in the charcters and the story I forgot by the end of the book I was reading an interracial love story. You have to but this book you will not regret it.

I agree with a previous reviewer - I so wanted to like this book. I love stories that take place in Texas and include that "cowboy" type. BUT this book was so difficult to read. Aside from the typos and grammatical errors, the story was choppy and disjointed. The main characters - especially Syleena -- would think one thing, say another and then behave in an opposite manner. It was annoying as all get out. My first preference when reading a romance novel is to like the man. If I don't like the man, there is nothing worthy in the book. Storm was mean and childish along with being a bully. Yet, I think I could have dealt with that to a point if I hadn't also had to deal with Syleena's lack of a backbone. The author tried to make her appear to be tough by her saying something "tough" but Syleena's actions kept negating her words. She came across immature, indecisive and lacking a clue. Syleena made me want to throw this book across the room - and I almost did that when I got to chapter 24. I had to put the book down before I threw it. I love to read and feel that it is terrible when people read the ending before they get there. I was sorely tempted to read the ending just so I could "get it over with." Syleena made the story a pain to read. How long was she going to put up with a mother who basically tormented her? And after that devasting scene where Storm confronts Syleena with her mother, I cannot believe that Syleena felt the only option she had was to move in with her mom and work at a strip club. Syleena is a college graduate for goodness sakes -- she couldn't find a job at Macy's at least? Not sure what the author was thinking. I am an aspiring author and found myself changing the dialog and scenes in my head -- thinking I would have written it this way or that way. I have purchased other books by this author and hope they are much better written and that the main characters have some depth and courage. This book was a chore to read and may end up being food for the fireplace.
