exactly what made this story as beautiful as it was Elijah, our 19 year old narrator, grew up in a privileged home with parents who have never really understood him Against his wishes, but to please his family, he heads to Harvard to study business Desperately unhappy, lost, and defeated after his first year, he spontaneously buys a beat up truck and heads wherever the road leads him The road leads him to Nebraska and onto Chase McKenzie s farm.Chase is such a heartbreaking character Having experienced loss over and over again, he s basically shut himself down and resigned himself to living his quiet life on his horse wheat farm Needing an extra pair of hands to help out, he takes Elijah in and not only teaches him how to be a farmer, but eventually, also, how to be a man.Elijah, though na ve, innocent, and inexperienced actually had such a burning strength inside of him I loved how huge his heart was for Chase His heart loved big enough to forgive Chase s own internal struggles manifested in mistreatment, at times, of Elijah And his commitment to seeing Chase to a place of healing was lovely.Chase sigh I ve never wanted to just hug and console a man as much as I did Chase Broken, hardened, and painfully sad, the moment he begins allowing Elijah in, and even all the struggles to reconcile their relationship in his life following, all I wanted was to see him happy This book s pace is slow and repetitive But I realized about of the way in that this must be intentional The life lived on this farm is slow and repetitive And when something was introduced out of the norm, I felt as affected by those experiences as I believe Elijah was as well The bond between these 2 characters was a slow growth and the end result is truly one of the most beautiful love stories I ve read in a long time Emotional I cried a lot.Sexy damn are the two of them sexy together.Sweet.Heartaching.Powerful.Lovely.This review can also be found at The audiobook made it

would get better, but as the story progressed, I kept deducting stars.I started by feeling sorry for Chase for losing his husband to not really liking him at all His grief was not an excuse for how he treated Elijah, and Elijah made me angry for taking it all in and not fighting back, making excuses for Chase saying that it was grief that made him act that way Ummmm Nope If being a jerk is how to show you are grieving, then I can t get on board with that at all.Chase And Elijah was determined to prove this theory right The sex scenes were hot until they became too much and repetitive, I can t believe I am saying that , It reached a point I started to forward the audio, yap i got bored with the sex scene SMH And this did it for me, I couldn t get past it Damn I need to learn to forgive some of the book characters that make me angry view spoiler I couldn t get past Chase acting like a dick to Elijah to make him leave for college then apologize the next minute and they have sex After Elijah leaving they had no contact in 3 years, why the hell did he even have to go to college and stay for that long without contact Just to come back to the farm with the Diploma that was not even going to help them why couldn t he just transfer to a college nearby and spend time during the summer with Chase he is the love of his life at least that is what he claimed and then he started sleeping around In the beginning we are told that he stayed a virgin because he wanted the sex to mean something, be with someone he cared about How can he then decide that having sex with other guys is Ok as long as he doesn t give them his heart, Like really, really Who is this guy and what have you done to Elijah Wanting to avoid messy morning afters, I rarely took anyone home, but there had been a few, all of them eager to bottom for me I never bottomed for anyone I knew I couldn t give myself like that to anyone but Chase Even with all the head I received and the fucks I had, no one ever compared to the blond cowboy who had taught me love, who I continued to write nightly hide spoiler Overall the writing was good, the audio book good too but the story frustrated me.Well sometimes DNF at 70%The first 30% I really liked, they were awesome, but as it went on I just stopped being invested in the characters and they sorta started getting on my nerves At 50% I started skimming and at 70% I got to thinking Will this book never end That s when I decided to DNF.The writing style here is pretty great so that wasn t what bothered me, I guess this is the situation it s not the book, it s me I lost interest and oh well, can t get it back now DNF at 70%The first 30% I really liked, they were awesome, but as it went on I just stopped being invested in the characters and they sorta

choose whether to continue his education and follow in his family s footsteps or to stay in Nebraska with the man he loves 4 StarsI m late to this party, considering this is probably one of those staple M M romances that many lovers of the genre read years and years ago but I m here now, and it is definitely a case of better late than never I was immediately drawn in by young Elijah s sweet

definitely a case of better late than never I was immediately drawn in by young Elijah s sweet and hopeful personality and his wish to experienceand bethan his parents wanted expected him to be He was an easily relatable and likeable character one I began to admire as he grew into the man he was meant to become during his intense summer on Chase s farm.Chase was a different kettle of fish He was one moody and reticent bastard at times, and sure, he had experienced great loss in his life and was dealing with that the only way he knew how, but it was still hard to watch him constantly push Elijah away and generally just treat him like shit, especially when it was clear that together they could be something wonderful I felt for Chase, I did, but I still couldn t help but feel like his rejecting behaviour was too much at times Elijah and Chase s relationship was one that was hard fought, with lots of push and pull between the two, mostly on Chase s part, but with a shared connection and attraction that was undeniable I definitely found their story deeply romantic at times, even with the intensity and frustration experienced throughout, but I guess that just made what they had between them all theprofound.However, I ll admit I lost a lot of my adoration during the events of the final chapter view spoiler with the years Chase forced them to be separated for Elijah s good apparently hide spoiler and in the rushed way the epilogue concluded their previously wonderful romance I went from wanting to give this full stars to almost wanting to DNF that s how much I disliked the final chapters It comes down to the fact that I just found what happened completely pointless, view spoiler because I truly felt it useless for Elijah to leave Chase and the life they built to go back to college, to finish his never to be used degree, and worst of all, to be with other people just so they could say he d experiencedof the world that s like saying that unless you ve had multiple partners, you can t know what real love is, to which I say a big and hearty GET STUFFED hide spoiler It s just a shame these chapters took away some of my previous admiration for the story, because up until the end, I was loving it.Ultimately, this was an engrossing and emotionally wrought story, the kind I felt possessed to devour in under a day Although the very end let me down a bit, I was still extremely impressed by Waitt s writing and story It s a shame she hasn t writtensince at least under this name because I d definitely be open to readby her PLEASE CAN I TRIPLE MY STARS FOR THIS

absolute gems in this genre so to find a new author for me and another jewel of a book that genuinely took my breath away was just wonderful.I read the first paragraph and that was it love at first read The writing flowed in that easy way, where you don t have to keep stopping to analyse because its overly florid or wordy It s just eyes down,sit back, relax and let it take you on its emotionally charged journey Elijahs voice as he tells the story is simple and beautiful and I deny anyone not to fall head over heels with this endearing 19 year old young man as he starts out on a road trip in his old truck with only his savings and not much else, to find himself away from the pressures of college and the expectations of his rich family, and as a result discovers the love of his life in a stubborn, lonely, heartbroken older cowboy who not only stole and at times broke his heart during their tempestuous relationship but stole and put mine through the wringer too From the moment they meet the air around them is electrically charged with some of the best written sexual tension and chemistry I ve ever encountered in a m m love story so be prepared for graphic, intense raw sex that doesnt pull any punches but at the same time is still beautiful, sensual, heart pounding and poignant, because of the emotional connection that these guys share and that jumps of the page in all their love scenes Its not a perfect book, there will be things to question but because I personally adored this story so much, it was perfection for me I class myself as a rose coloured glasses reader because if a story grabs me I honestly don t look for or generally see things to pick at, I m happy to allow a bit of poetic license and when I read Its always the pleasure that I get from it that I base my ratings on, and my enjoyment and connection to a story and I was heart tied to this from start to finish I freely admit to being a high rater but this one I would triple the rating if I could The actual story you need to read for yourselves and I guess Chase s actions will hit everyone in a different way but however you feel about way he acts, I m pretty sure he ll have you loving him with a pash by the end of the book I fell under his spell the first time he was described in the story so I understood why Elijah put up with so much to be with him Both he and Elijah are characters who will stay in my memory for a very long time I was gutted when I finished it so as soon as Ive finished this review I m going to start it all over again, something I ve only done a handful of times when a books been so good, and this time I m reading it interruption free No stopping to write OMG Style updates grins I loved this book so much Thanks V.M Waitt for putting so much heart and soul into it and therefore giving such a pleasurable if somewhat teary eyed reading experience, because be warned you ll need the tissues Well you will if you re a big softie Thanks again to my bestest

business so he is studying Business Studies but his real love is music.One day he sees an old Ford pick up truck for sale and,on impulse,decides to buy it and instead of going home for the summer he takes to the open road not knowing where he is going or what he is looking for.When his truck breaks down he takes a job on a farm to help pay for the repairs.This is where he meets ChaseChase is a solitary man,emersed in grief after a tragedy in his past.Initially it s just a working relationship with Chase trying to push Elijah away.I thought the Author did a great job with the descriptive of the farm setting.I could totally picture long hot summer days working in the wheat fields and tending to the horsesThis is a slow burning love story with two very different charactersone very complex and the other totally open and honest.I must admit half way through I didn t care for Chase much and I hated the way he treat Elijah at times but by the end of the book I understood him much better.Elijah,wellI just adored that boy.Although we know Elijah is 19,we aren t told how old Chase is but I m guessing around 30 and this is one of my favourite M M themes..the older guy and the younger one.The sex scenes are hot and well written.My only slight negative would be I felt the last 20% was a little rushed,bearing in mind the time scale it involved.All in all a very enjoyable,well thought out M M Romance When I ve heard that Val brought out her first original fiction I was ecstatic I had to read the book and fast Chase the Storm is a story about 19 years old college student

very very happy my friend Eleftheria recommended it to me Once I started reading it, I was hard pressed to stop until I hit the last page Indeed, it consumed me, and once I came to the end, I wanted nothingthan to start all over again Chase the Storm is told from Elijah s POV Elijah is nineteen and just finished his freshman year of college and he is miserable He comes from a wealthy family who have certain expectations that are just not a good fit with Elijah at all He doesn t care about the wealth his family has or the business degree he is supposed to be getting He has no desire to own the trendiest anything nor to follow in his father s footsteps He just feels trapped by everyone else s expectations On his last day of classes, a for sale sign on an old, beat up pickup truck catches his eye and on that day, Elijah buys himself a little piece of freedom That summer, instead of going home to intern at his father s company, Elijah takes another path.Chase is a man in mourning Still grieving the loss of his husband, Chase cannot imagine ever letting anyone else in He stays isolated and is doing his best to make a living on his farm Chase is in his early thirty s, but he stopped living the day that Owen died Maybe it was fate that brought Elijah to his farm in search of a summer job Maybe it was just chance But there s no doubt that the day Elijah showed up is the day that Chase discovered that not all hope was lost Chase fights his attraction to Elijah with everything he has He feels all kinds of guilt over it, feeling like he is betraying Owen, but he cannot deny there is something there Their love story grabbed a hold of my heart and squeezed tight It was beautiful and heart breaking, and I cried through the last two chapters and the epilogue I don t actually recall another book where I was moved so much that I cried through the happy ending There were so many feels, they had no where else to go except to make me a weepy mess And I d do it all again, and very likely will soon.I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoys m m stories that really make you feel It is angsty, but in the best of ways
