The choices we make decide our fate.
When the “storm of the century” severs all power and cell service to Little Bridge Island—as well as its connection to the mainland—26-year-old Sabrina “Bree” Beckham isn’t worried . . . at first. She might be on her own, but she’s got a landline and plenty of supplies.
But Bree does become alarmed when she realizes how many islanders have been cut off from their beloved pets. Now it’s up to her to save as many of Little Bridge’s cats, dogs, and birds as she can…but to do so, she’s going to need help—help that arrives in the form of an entirely different super storm: her boss’s sexy nephew, Drew Hartwell, the island’s most notorious heartbreaker.
But when her ex shows up just as Bree starts falling for Drew, she has to ask herself if their steamy connection was only a result of the stormy weather, or something that could last during clear skies too.

During my teenage years I consumed everything Meg Cabot wrote, in fact it was The Princess Diaries that really got me into the YA genre – so I used to be pretty obsessed with her books, however it has been a good few years (around 11ish) since I’ve read anything new from her and although I was looking forward to this book I did have little of hesitation – my book tastes have shifted a little as I’ve gotten a bit older and I was sure how I was going to like this story.
This wasn’t a brilliant read for me, the storyline was fine and actually a romance blossoming during a hurricane in theory sounds like it would be really interesting. The thing that felt off to me to were the characters, they just felt like they lacked any depth. Bree was a little boring and at time it felt like the was a teenage girl and not women in her 20’s. It was a similar situation for Drew – I just had no interest, he was even less developed that Bree.
Thins I did enjoy, were the setting – Little Bridge sounds idyllic – pre hurricane. The animals, I loved Bree’s little cat Gary and finally the cover of this book is just do damn pretty!
Overall – this was ok, it didn’t really hold the same magic that her previous books have but that might just be nostalgia speaking.
