This book was just okay for me. I really wanted to like it and the plot of a book taking place after a tornado sounded really cool. In fact, the parts I liked the best were the ones surrounding the storms/tornado themselves. Unfortunately, neither Max nor Bree were characters I connected with and other than the “ditch scene” I never really felt the chemistry. Bree was just a “hot mess” throughout the book and that never really changed. I kept waiting for her to have some growth – she was more than willing to admit she had made some reckless decisions and was living her life to please her dad and for her dead brother but she never really moved past that. I liked Max at first and then he took a turn I wasn’t crazy about. Bree is his best friend and instead of trying to help her come to a realization about her life he just throws out a lot of rules about their relationship. The romance just fell flat for me.
I give this book 2 Charms
