Signal Bend, Missouri survived a war on its streets and has arrived at a period of growth and peace. The town and its guardians, the Night Horde MC, relax into this moment of hope, looking toward the future for the first time in decades.
Everyone but Robert “Showdown” Ryan. Having suffered tremendous loss in that war, and taking on the burden of blame for it, Show has nothing left of himself. He is an empty husk of a man, drowning in grief and whiskey, seeking relief in numbness.
Shannon Bannerman has come to Signal Bend to manage the new Keller Acres Bed & Breakfast. She has left a successful city life to start anew in this tiny town, trying to keep the door closed on the regrets of her past.
Shannon is drawn to Show despite his stony detachment, and he is drawn to her despite his need to stay numb. But the pain in their pasts is deep and damaging. Only real love, like neither of them has ever known, could heal it.
NOTE: explicit sex, limited violence.
Into the Storm begins just a few months after the second book ends. Shannon is the new manager to the new B&B that just opened up. She is also hiding something that no one can seem to figure out, but she's good at putting it away. Shannon takes notice of Show almost immediately. She even tries to get his attention but when that doesn't work she decides to lay off. She knows that some bad things happened to him, and he's probably not ready for anything yet. So after some time Show starts to come around. But Show has some demons that she may not be able to help with. These two have a lot to work through before they can make to the other side, if they can make it to the other side.
This book was only okay to me. I liked the idea of the story, and I really liked Show. But I just felt like there really wasn't a whole lot going on the book especially with the town, and it sort of lost interest to me. Then I really couldn't stand Shannon. I felt like Show needed someone who was a lot stronger than she was. I just didn't like her. Although I came to respect her towards the end she just got on my nervous for most of the book. It was nice to see more of Issac and Lilly though! Not sure if I will read the next one or not, but I did enjoy this one.
