  • Me_LissaH
    Huge fan of Carian Cole and I love her books. But this book was a lackluster read for me. I still enjoyed Evie and Storm but while i was reading it felt like someone else’s story. Didn’t hate it and I didn’t love it. Overall just an okay read.
  • Talia (Red Hot Ink)
    Loved this novella! It had been ages since I read "Storm" but since the first page it was like meeting old friends. I had completely forgotten about Evie's insecurities and Storm's past but this novella used their impending wedding to delve into their feelings and bring up some unpleasant things from their past.It was not a sad read, though. It was pretty much one of those feel-good "what happens after HEA". And I always appreciate it. There was ...

    **I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by LWoods PR and the author. Thank you for the reviewing opportunity!** God Save Me. The first thing I did after Loving Storm landed on my Kindle was:1. Freak out because it is Carian Cole people! 2. Swoon because that cover is just effing hot!3. Reread Storm and fell in love with them all over again. 4. Immediately dove into Loving Storm right after and probably bawled my eyes out a...

    5 Swoon worthy stars!I was given this ARC Book in exchange for an honest review.Oh man do I love Storm! He is still my favorite of all of Carian Cole's characters.

    Book 5 in the ashes & embers seriesWe catch up with Storm & Evie with this novella set 6 months after their book, on the road to their wedding. As always..with Carian Coles writing, this novella shows the depth and love that storm and Evie have for one another...whilst teasing us with sneaky Peekies of the charachters from the other books in the series and it does not disappoint!!Beautifully written with huge dollops of 'THE FEELS'...a pleasure f...

    I loved it... I would say it was a nice conclusion to Storm and Evie's story but it wasn't... It was a wonderful glimpse in their lives after the end of their book.... I'm not saying goodbye because I'll see them again in the future books of the series and I can't wait for that... I had a great time with this novella and at the end I only wanted a few more pages, a little more into their common life because I simply didn't want this novella to en...

    ARC kindly provided by author.I just, love, love, love Carian Cole's Ashes & Embers series! I've been hooked on it ever since she published her first book... so, I'll call myself a devoted fan. Loving Storm is a novella and a sequel to Carian's first novel - Storm. It is not a standalone and you have to read Storm prior to this... and if you haven't read it already, you just have to. Read the whole series, it is amazing! We get to experience Stor...

    ***5 ‘Perfect Figure Eight’ Stars*** I’ve stated this in other reviews, or at least in my head, but Carian Cole’s words are like crack and I can’t ever seem to get enough and Loving Storm was all that and more. I loved getting to see them take the next step in their relationship and get the HEA they so richly deserved. It was fun, sweet, swoon worthy and filled with all the Valentine family goodness I’ve come to love about this series...
  • i fall in love book blog
    Loving Storm was a great followup to Storm. It read like an extended epilogue (though the novella also includes an actual epilogue). Any problems that came up within the book were quickly squashed. Really this is just a lovely look at Storm & Evie's life together. You definitely need to read Storm before diving into this one. I don't think you will enjoy this one if you haven't, but if you have read Storm and you loved these characters ...
  • Barbara
    *sigh*I'm in love with this fairytale love story. If you left the book Storm wanting more, here is the "more" that you've been waiting for. As hot and sexy and madly in love as ever, Storm and Evie are my absolute favorites in the Ashes & Embers series.This quick read takes you through their engagement and magical wedding with a few little surprises and an epilogue that gives you a peek into the future. We also get to spend a few moments with the...

    Loving Storm, by Carian Cole is the fifth installment in the Ashes & Embers series. It goes back into the lives of Storm and his one and only, Evie! That being said, this is a novella. I have been contemplating on what to say about Loving Storm, with giving it the justice it deserves. Carian Cole's writing style gives me goosebumps, you feel the characters emotions as if they were your own. EVERY SINGLE TIME! This is Carian in her true fashion, a...

    ***ARC received for review***I have a confession to make....This is the first time I actually picked up a Carian Cole novel to read. I know...I'm shaking my head along with you all. I cannot believe this is the first time I've read a novel by this author. What is wrong with me! Better late than never, right?I requested an ARC of Loving Storm by Carian Cole simply due to the blurb. It was a hook line and sinker type thing. Then I received an email...

    Reviewed on Behalf of Book Addict live,I LOVED THIS NOVELLA , THIS GOES ON MY KEEPER  READING SHELF JOINING ♥ STORM ♥I have been looking forward to Loving Storm as soon as it was announced. The first book Storm has been one of my favourites since it was released. So before reading this I listened to the Audiobook to refresh my memory. This almost carries on from the first one, and it was wonderful edition to the series. Evie is very highly...

    Since I read the first book, Storm, the very first time, I’ve been head-over-heels, thinking this-is-my-absolute-favorite-book-boyfriend. I love his naughtiness and he’s big warm heart and he has pulled me back even more times than I can count.Reading this sequel only made me fall even harder. As any of Carian Cole’s books, this one was well written, emotional, sweet and well constructed. I couldn’t honestly have wished for a better seque...
  • Paula D
    The continued story of Storm and Evie and it’s breathtaking beautiful. I loved how the author showed us there life together thru all the ups and downs. How Storm knows how Evie is feeling and vise versus. How much Evie has changed and has become more stronger woman but still has that worry side to her. Then Storm how he is still head over heals for Evie and happy he’s found the one who loves him for himself. A short sweet story that had me sw...

    Carian Cole has done it again. This might have been a short novella but each page had so much emotion. From picking a date, to finally saying I do, to eventually the birth of their first child, no one who reads this can walk away without truly understanding how much these two characters are in love. They might have met by chance in a blizzard but they are forever soulmates. The characters get deeper and deeper as the tale unfolds. This was pure r...

    Storm, wow he is so much more than a sexy broody man. Carian can make you swoon hard for these bad boys of music! I loved seeing more of Storm & Evie's hea. This was a short quick read with so a nice glimpse into their future. This only problem I had was it was just too short & I wanted more about everyone!! The Ashes & Embers crew are full of hot sexy swoony men who find wonderful other halves. I highly recommend this book, but only after readin...

    This book is like the sweetest hug that you never want to let go of! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and wished it would never end! From then silly humor (I.e. getting evie her favorite juice) to the incredible love felt throughout the book... you will love this follow up novell from the very first page! Great job carian!
  • Heather andrews
    Storm doesn't care who he tells his plans for his woman to, "Storm winks at me from across the kitchen. “We’re going to christen every room when you guys leave.” Storm can admit when he's wrong, “Baby, I’m sorry I yelled at you. This really caught me off guard.” I loved this book, I loved seeing the gang again and I loved seeing Storm and his woman.
  • Jenn
    A definite 5-star read.Once again, we have another amazing book from Carian Cole.In Loving Storm, we get to catch up with Storm and Evie. I really enjoyed reading about them after Storm ended.I loved how each character had softened personality-wise. They seemed to have healed each other just by their love for one another. Their connection to each other is stronger than ever.Do not be swayed by the fact this book is a novella. It still takes you o...
  • Toni
    I LOVE Storm!! This was an easy, lighthearted read that gives us more Storm and Evie. Who doesn't want that?! Love everything about this couple, as well as the rest of the A&E gang.
  • Cyndi Becker
    I'm not new to Carian Cole but until last week I hadn't started the Ashes and Embers series. It wouldn't matter if I had read the series ages ago but I'll say it was pretty great to go from reading Storm straight into Loving Storm. Carian Cole delivers an utterly charming, fun, sexy and heartfelt read in this is follow-up. You will want to have read Storm first though because for one, Storm Valentine is a pretty amazing guy. But also because the ...
  • Tara Deluca
    *I received an ARC for an honest review.* Loving Storm is the sequel to the first book in the Asher and Ambers series. It’s heartwarming, and amazing written. I’ve missed these two characters and I’m happy we got more of their story. Storm is still the sweetheart and amazing man he was in the first book. As a Evie seemed to grow more, she isn’t as uptight she was before. And that’s a good thing, I like this new side of Evie. In all this...
  • Tessa Amburgey
    As always, Carian gives us what we want. A sweet, loving wrap up of one our favorite couples. The story is cute, and tells us what all we've been itching to know about how Storm & Evie's life turns out. There are still plenty of questions burning through my mind! I can't wait for the next bite of this awesome, crazy family. Storm is just as wonderful as always but I think he gets even better with this tid bit. love, love, love.
  • Julie
    Loving Storm is the highly anticipated sequel to Storm, the first book in the Ashes and Embers Series. I was so excited for this book, and it’s well worth the wait! Ahhh, Storm, I love you!In Loving Storm, we get Storm’s pov to everything he is feeling for Evie, and what a man he is! He’s sexy, but such a sweetheart with a heart of gold. There is nothing this man won’t do to make her happy. Every woman needs a Storm in their life.Storm an...

    "This is where my future meets my past." Loving Storm reminded me how much I love Storm. Spending time with this amazing couple was a sweet treat. I was reminded of their unique introduction, and the storms they had to weather to be together.Evie has come a long way, but she still struggles with anxiety. Storm knows the best ways to ease her worries and to comfort her. But getting her to share what's bothering her is still a work in progress. H...
