Just finished reading 'Breaking the Storm' book 1 in Sedona's "Credence Curse" series, all I can say is that I'm glad there is going to be more of this series, because when the book ended I had so many unaswered questions. There is no relationship cliffhanger, but a storyline cliffhanger, so bring on book 2. But overall I found it really interesting & unique for the shifter/paranormal world inside.

The Credence Curse means that Stormy & her family can't fall in love with human's for fear of having them die hours after confessing there love. So when Stormy finds herself falling for wanna be rocker Knox, she runs away. 5 years later they run into one-another & the attraction is still there from 5 years ago & the longer they're together the stronger it develops.

Sedona has written a story that's intriguing & although it's a part of a series that's in the process of being written, it held my interest & I want to read the rest of the series when it comes out. It was fast paced, full of action, steamy, factaul, with witty conversations.... I really enjoyed learning the different Others laws & species, & you can tell alot of thought went through figuring out all the details. I need more of the Credence family, I want to learn more about the different laws for the different species, I also want to know about this war we get a hint about at the end....

Before I purchased this particular shifter book-I read all the reviews. The negative reviews captured my attention with regard to certain viewpoints about the main characters and concepts of the story line, so I decided to change the concept of the review -I am reviewing the negative reviews as well as the book.

Before I get into the logistics of my breakdown on the reviews I read; I have to say that this was an exceptional story-with all the elements of a shifter romance. The characters were far from boring, a multifaceted story line that is exciting as well as magical, and for those who love intimacy content there is certainly enough to ignite the pages. There is also plenty of background story to prepare the reader for an astounding series with a huge cast of unique characters.

Stormy: an audacious, sexy, intelligent, curvy, beautiful Fae-witch, running a high class escort service and burdened with the Credence Curse-the true loves of Credence women die. The Fae-witches are extremely powerful beings (a strong bloodline); A few of the reviewers stated that Stormy was stupid; because she didn't recognize that Knox was a wolf-shifter. Actually, that was the author's intent-and the author makes mention in the first chapter-that Stormy had to speak to her mom for a lesson on how to recognize the Others (shifters)-a lesson she had no interest in when she was younger, and she was also stupid because she didn't recognize that Ryker & Knox were related-again she wasn't supposed to. I loved the fact she didn't know about his wolf because it added ANTICIPATION and EXCITEMENT to the story-when Knox finally appeared as a wolf; it proved how PROTECTIVE he was towards Stormy, it was CLIMATIC. Stormy is not stupid, just hung up on the Credence Curse, and not wanting her Fae powers, in fact she has a dominant (alpha) personality and has very strong protective instincts when it comes to Knox; which she proves in the book. Another reviewer didn't understand the dream Stormy had when she meets Ryker's grandfather Tiber who had an important message for her-only it wasn't a dream she was physically transported to the realm between the human realm and the Other realm-it was The Fae that allowed the meeting-it's called MAGIC.

Knox: Rock Star, charismatic, astute, gorgeous, sexy (DOM), alpha controlling personality, wolf-shifter: A few reviewers did not like the fact the Knox called Stormy a slut-okay not one of my favorite words, however, he made it a point of stating she would be HIS slut-to me that screams POSSESSIVE. These reviewers thought he was disrespectful and they didn't like him because of his attitude; he's a wolf-shifter not Prince Charming. Before Stormy found out that the Knox was the friend that Alpha Ryker was gifting the escort to-he whispered something in her ear: that his friend SERVES a very IMPORTANT PURPOSE-that sentence HOWLED-that Knox Gunner was Beta-second in command to the most powerful wolf-pack in New York-so is Knox disrespectful-I see him as a Beta who won't show weakness in front of his Alpha-also he was trying to get a rise out of Stormy. The banter between Stormy & Knox is beyond phenomenal, the word that comes to my mind is foreplay. A few reviewers didn't understand why Knox was portrayed as a DOM-because BDSM is all about trust-and since they didn't trust each other why bother putting that in the book: When Knox and Storm were discussing guide lines: Knox stated to: Stormy-that she was all about Power. Order. Authority., but her SUBMISSION to him was more important-and that they will build trust-by pushing boundaries. You do have to start somewhere-the reader knows Knox is a wolf-shifter-Ryker is his Alpha-so do you think perhaps Knox knew about the curse??? Knox had his insecurities also, and he needed Stormy not only to trust him (but to trust in him) which meant giving herself to him The Credence Woman Way-it's in the book (the translation is extremely important to him) and running from him was not an option because he was ready to give her everything. Some reviewers objected to him telling her what to wear and where to go-he sent her expense dress/gowns they were gifts-she was his escort to functions. Knox did ask her to do some bizarre things which made for an extremely interesting part of the story. Another reviewer wanted to know what the point of a safe word was since there was no BDSM happening-the safe word was for her benefit to use whenever or wherever she wanted as long as it wasn't the word NO-don't forget he is part wolf and if she smelled of fear-that was his own signal to STOP. Knox screams dominance, he may be 2nd in command but he is definitely ALPHA, but beneath that tough exterior when it comes to Stormy he just melts. Would he ever hurt Stormy NO-would he protect her ABSOLUTELY-Is she his YES-does he finally win all her heart??? (No cliffhanger)

I totally understand that everyone has opinion and not everyone is going to like a book, however, when words rip apart a character when the answers are in the book-the review shows no merit. If the reviewer stated that she would have liked the book better if Stormy recognized that Knox was a wolf-shifter instead of calling her stupid; that is a much better way of expressing feelings. As far as the BDSM it certainly belonged in the book as it served a purpose-its purpose was in the book . With regard to Knox, the tender moments definitely outweigh his dominant personality. I certainly do not profess to be the all know it on reviews as I am not, however, I do have the responsibility to write a respectable review that merits the author or any author's talent whether I enjoyed the book or not.

This book is absolutely incredible and I am so elated-that I purchased this book and ignored the negative reviews. Sometimes it pays to read between the lines-and discover how an author portrays her characters and their significance in the story. This book also had some intense moments which made it that much better. Sedona melded together more than a memorable story and I most definitely look forward to reading the next book in this series. I highly recommend this book.

My Thoughts:
I am torn in my feelings about Breaking the Storm. There are parts that I enjoyed and parts that I didn't.

What I Liked...
I enjoyed the character dynamics in the story. The easy flow between Stormy and her cousin, Light and between their mothers, as crazy as they were, was even and easy. I really liked the premise of the story as well. A man coming back to claim his woman after years apart. What's not to love about an alpha male on the "I'm coming to take back what's mine" war path. Loved it!

Now, What I Didn't Like...
My first and second "dislikes" are connected. First, the use of "slut"...hated it. I ground my teeth every time Knox said that he was going to make Stormy his slut. He only said it twice, but that was two times too many for me. I get it...he was making a point with Stormy. Telling her without telling her that she was his and would always be his. But, I'm thinking "slut" wasn't the best "term of endearment" that he could have used to gain her submission and acquiescence. The way he said it was not sexy but rather demeaning, in my opinion.

Moving on...the second dislike for me was the insertion of the D/s theme in the story. Again, I get the mechanics of it but it just didn't fit well for me. I have read plenty of BDSM romances and I am in no means a prude but the theme in this story did not feel organic to me. Light and Stormy's mothers were Dommes and Knox and Ryker were Doms. Why? *shrug*...I didn't get it. And honestly, other than Knox telling Stormy where to be and what to wear, I didn't get his Domness. He was alpha for sure, but not a Dom. One of the basic tenets of a D/s relationship is trust. Trust is always established between a Dom and a sub and there was zero trust between Stormy and Knox. Knox nothing to establish it. He tested Stormy's limits but those limits were based on her desire for him and not any trust between them.

>>>There is a slight spoiler in the next section so please skip ahead if you don't want to be spoiled.<<<

Moving on...again...Stormy *sigh, what can I say about Stormy? I was firmly put her in the too stupid to live category on a couple of instances. She just was clueless when it came to the Otherness around her. Again, I get it...she was a hybrid and was more interested in being human than other. But, I wanted to shake her when she saw Knox's tattoos -- his wolf tattoos of a wolf pack and a single wolf with striking green eyes, like his human eye color. I think I was screaming at her by that point. It was just too obvious and she totally missed it. But I really lost all patience with her when she actually saw Knox in wolf form, green eyes and all, and it still took more than a nanosecond for her to clue in that it was him. She thought it was Ryker.

That's a wrap...
Although I had a few issues with the story, I didn't hate. It contained a solid premise and I believe it set a solid foundation for the series. I would have liked to see more by way of the supernatural though. There were only two instances of obvious supernatural activity in the entire story. I would have enjoyed seeing the Fae-witches do something Fae-y or witch-y. But, as this is the first book in the series, it is understandable that the author had to lay the groundwork for what is to come. I enjoyed Light's teaser at the end and look forward to read about the Clash of the Titans: Light vs. Ryker. Now, THAT should be a fun story. Overall, I give this book solid marks for being vivid, detailed, and interesting.

Sedona has done it with the first book in the Credence's series. We get introduce to Knox and Stormy(Storm). Storm tires to protect her heart from Knox to keep the curse at bay. Unfortunately for Storm, Knox won't give up after all these years apart. Can Storm change her destiny? Is Knox the one for her? And would she do when someone from her past comes back to ruin. I would recommended everyone to read this book you will be hooked from the beginning.

This book was just a little too harsh for my taste. It started out very well, but that ended up being just one chapter to introduce us to the curse and an ancestor. Both Knox and Storm refused to trust each other - and I never really understood the reasons why. We get a glimpse of them near the end, but it wasn't soon enough. It someone had just thought to open their mouth (preferable Knox) then things wouldn't have had a chance to turn into a story, but by starting things this way, it really tainted the story for me as well.

All the characters were a little too hard as well. They weren't just tough and resilient, they were hard in a way that made it difficult to get to know them and to fall for them as the leading characters. Even the side characters were overly tough - there wasn't any gentleness to balance it all out.

The concept behind the story and the history of the Credence family was well thought out and I enjoyed learning about it. I have a copy of book two, so I'm hoping that I can enjoy the character more in the next one.

Storm and Knox are great together but Storm has a secret that she will not reveal to Knox. The Credence family curse has killed every man they have loved. While trying to let him down easy to avoid her secret, she comes up with too many reasons not to.
Knox is the lead singer of a band that is just breaking into the music scene but is hoping that Storm will stay in his life. When Storm catches him with his manager in a compromising situation she finds the strength to break it off.
Five years have passed since that terrible night when Storm meets Knox again, but not at a concert. Knox is at the same benefit that Storm has gone to to apologize to the New York pack that she is unable to provide a she-wolf escort for a friend. When it turns out that Knox is the friend Storm is not able to comply.
Knox has finally come to his own with his music. He is famous and liked by everyone, has friend in high places and out to get his woman back.
When things heat up will Storm make a break for it or will she reveal her secret to Knox? And what about Knox, is he hiding something from Storm?
Storm is caught up in a murder investigation, secrets and lies. Can Knox help her or will the curse that Storm has kept from Knox finally catch up to them?
