The Hurricane by R.J Prescott
Emily McCarthy is living in fear of a dark and dangerous past. A gifted mathematician, she is little more than a hollow, broken shell, trying desperately to make ends meet long enough to finish her degree.
Through an unlikely friendship with the aging, cantankerous owner of an old boxing gym, Em is thrown into the path of the most dangerous man that she has ever met.
Cormac “the Hurricane” O’Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the mis-fire. He’s never been knocked out before, but when he meet Em he falls, HARD. Unlike any other girl he’s ever met, she doesn’t want anything from him, but just being around her makes him want to be a better person.
They are polar opposites who were never meant to find each other, but some things are just worth the fight.
Kerry's review 5 of 5 starsWhat an amazing book! I'm beyond gutted that it took me so long to read but life interrupts sometimes. When I was finally able to sit down with this book I read it in one afternoon.
The story is about Emily McCarthy and Cormac "The Hurricane" O'connel. Emily's life hasn't been easy her ather died when she was 9 and her mother remarried Frank who regularly beat her to teach her a lesson she eventually manages to run as far away as possible but is always looking over her shoulder waiting for Frank to catch up with her. Cormac is your typically ladies man tall dark and handsome, and also a boxer swoooon!
When these two collide it is inevitable that they are going to be together Emily just has to catch up with this.
This book is more than a love story both characters deserve it and I'm glad they got it but there is also enough suspense to keep you reading in one sitting! I laughed I cried and I Cheered these two characters on right to the very last page. The epilogue was brilliant getting a little insight to how Cormac felt really ties the book up
I would seriously recommend this book to everyone I know it is one of the best books I have read in a while.
