Storm: book 2 of the Kelly Family series by Lashell Collins. It tells the story of Storm and Nina.
I love Lashell's books. She's a very talented writer. The first book in this series was good and I enjoyed it to the point I wanted more. This one however I just couldn't connect with.
Nina was just stupid. She repeatedly did the dumbest things. Like go on a date with a guy she's not interested in, with the hope that it would make him go away??? Then there's the fact that her back door is broken and doesn't always close and she doesn't bother to get it fixed??? The worst one is her leaving with Bull, knowing that he is stalking her, just because she was embarrassed with how he followed her to the park and bothered her in front of her friends??? Really is the girl brain dead??? Oh and we can't forget her habit of hiding a spare house key in her yard??? Where anyone can see her get it and steal it. I've always wondered in real life if anyone does that?
Ok now there is Storm. There are parts of his character I really liked a lot. However there was also a part of him I really didn't like. I've read plenty of books that has some BDSM in them though I don't generally look for such type of stories. This book has some in it and I have to say I didn't like it at all. I think it's the fact that he's a cop doing it that made it feel so wrong. Especially the spanking. I'm sorry you can color that anyway you like but it's still hitting someone. I don't get BDSM at all. I find those that do it to be weak and pathetic. I mean to get off on hitting someone or to be the one getting hit. I just don't get it.
Over all I did like the story though. It was interesting and I would've liked more to it. It would've been nice to know if Storm made detective or not. Also was his father against him becoming one? Their fight really could have been filled in more. For a short read the story was good and for that I give it 3 1/2 stars.
