I have many stories! Her video demeanor does not completely show just how funny and spontaneous she can be although the section about dogs does show some of this quite well. I am one lucky and grateful interviewer. And NONE of this would have happened if not for KT Horning, who sent me an email sharing the fact that what I thought was going to be a Skype presentation, was now an in person presentation. I was not planning to attend. I am so glad I did. Certainly Atinuke is worth the cost of admission all by herself, but I was also able to do another interview with the wonderful Mitali Perkins!

Tru was frustrating but I understood her reasoning sometimes and other times I wanted to slap her silly. Jake on the other hand stole my heart. He has his demons and works at keeping them at bay, not always successful, but the one thing that grounds him is Tru.
His expression of love for her throughout the book had me swooning, sighing and wishing against all hope that my name was Tru. Some of my favorite and beautiful Jake quotes: "I love you," he repeats. It's always been you. I want you to be mine. I love how they look on you. Hate that they're blocking my access. I have a few things in common with him.
He's broken and complex, and no one knows him like I do, or ever will. He's my storm to calm. And I'm going to spend the rest of my life doing just that.
I really had no idea what to expect. I was reassured that I would love it and to jump in View all 60 comments.

The Mighty Storm was a completely invigorating, mindblowing ride on the Angst Express! The Mighty Storm is my first Samantha Towle experience and it will not be my last. When I read a great, angst filled romance, my heart beats faster and I can feel every little twist and turn in the relationship in my chest. This book had me all in a flutter, a flutter tha The Mighty Storm was a completely invigorating, mindblowing ride on the Angst Express!
Angst is like dessert to me; I need it, I crave it, and I love it. So get on the Angst Express with me here for a minute; I want to explain exactly what kind of trip you are going to get if you hop on board. At first it is smooth, taking in the view and getting to know the layout. Then, there is an uphill journey that brings you to the top of highest mountain where the view is breathtaking and quite frankly you never want to come down. But what is the old saying? What goes up must come down?
The same is true of the Angst Express and it shoots up and down a few times going so fast that your heart is beating out of your chest and you have trouble catching your breath. As the ride continues and comes to as end, you will hope the whole ride was worth the highs and lows, twists and turns. Tru is one of those female characters that will get on some readers nerves, I am not going to lie. Yes, she loves him but it is not THAT love.
Tru is indecisive at times, trying to figure out what she wants and whether or not she should put herself first. I really actually liked Tru because I would be a hypocrite not to.

It would be really hard to be in that situation! Jake is troubled, broken, sexy, sweet and just about everything I love in a male character. Oh, and he is a rockstar! Most of all, I love the way he loves Tru. Yes, he does have a few relationship faults but the poor guy has never been in a relationship so he is learning everything as he begins with Tru.
He did some things that made me want to shake and curse him but in the end, Jake is extremely hard not to love! He had my heart the moment he took Tru to Pizza Hut: Is love enough?
That is a question that often went through my head while reading this. Tru and Jake have such a connection that started when they were very young but there are demons in their past that must be overcome.

Their love is like my favorite football team; I root for them in good times and bad and I would be a fan no matter what happens. I love when books give me so many characters to love and think about for days to come! I highly recommend to…. View all 12 comments. I loved this book! Just saying, just in case this thing with Tru is not working This is my first review with pics thanks Candace , so I am sooooo excited!!! First of all, they are Brits, I mean, do I need any other reason to read a book? I am not even gonna answer that. She lives in Camden for fucks sake, one of my favorites place in the UK well, I love Richmond also but come on!
Camden is A.
I have said this a million times but I have been living in the UK for 2 years so I love that country and it is amazing when you read about a place in a book and you imagine the place but it is even more amazing when you have been in that place. Tru and Jake have been friends since they were little, they were in love with each other but nothing happened and then Jake leaves the UK to go to America with his mum and they don't see each other in 12 years. After 12 years he is super famous and True is a musical journalist and she has to interview him.
She has a boyfriend, a lovely english man called Will who is soooo in love with her Will if you read this pls PM your phone number and I will call you the next time I am going to London, I promise. I know most of the people here are not into cheating and I am not saying I support cheating but sometimes it happens and it is obvious that they have been in love since forever so when Jake offers her to go on tour with them you know something is gonna happen. So the tour starts And I understand Tru, she is in love with him even if she cares for Will.
Come one guys, judging her is the easy thing to do. The last day of the tour Will turns up in the hotel with Simone I love best friends like her and the drama starts. Jake wants Tru to tell Will but that is not easy! She cares for Will, she can't say "hey, I have been sleeping with him, laters!
