5 TOM THE MUT STARS
Boy meets a girl, hits on her twice and is shocked to hell to find she wants nothing to do with him. Boy meets up with girl months later on a business trip. Girl puts up road blocks. Boy decides he likes the chase, the challenge and uses his charms to move those road blocks. Girl and boy decide the sexual tension is too much and once they give in, they realize sex is great. They decide they can do this “f*ck buddies thing” while on business, once the trip is over, they will resume their old lives and pretend it never happened. Problem is, we aren’t talking about any ordinary boy or any ordinary girl. We are talking about Tom Effing Carter, bassist for The Mighty Storm, and the hot and sexy lead singer of Vintage, Lyla Summers, nor are we talking about any ordinary business trip…this is a 6 week tour – on a tour bus!
“You’re such a guy.”
“I f*cking hope so, Firecracker. With the size of my junk, I’d worry if I wasn’t.”
I have loved this series and I can’t think of a better way to end it than with a story about the untamable Tom Carter and the one who tamed him, Lyla Summers! This book was fun and it was sexy, all the things you would expect from a story about Tom. The banter between the two is off the charts good. Lyla gives as good as she gets and she is exactly what Tom needs.
“What will you do if you run out of women?”
“That’ll never happen.”
“You go through women at the speed of light.” “So, what will you do then? Start recycling?”
Nope. I’m not an environmentally friendly kind of guy. And just so you know, I might have gone through a lot of women in my time, but when I f*ck – I f*ck long and slow…real f*cking slow.”
“And I need to know your screwing speed, why?”
“You’re not ready to hear the answer to that question.”
“And what if I ever am-” “I mean, if I am, at some point in the imaginary, not-real-ever future?”
“Well, on that imaginary day, you would let me know, and then I’d tell you. But until then, just use that imagination of yours.”
What I didn’t expect, was that it was also a little sad, and that dimension made me love this book even more.
“You deserve better,” “You deserve better than me.”
Tom has a boyish charm that is as equally endearing as his sexy alpha male tendencies. And, despite him being funny as hell, he is hiding pain. It is that pain that we learn is the cause for him being the philandering Tom Cat that he is.
As he struggles to overcome his pain, Lyla struggles to overcome hers and the two find that they just might be perfect for each other. That is if they can let go of the past.
“Your guy is out there. One who won’t be a mut. There’s a guy who deserves an awesome girl like you.”
I don’t have a review for The Mighty Storm (Storm #1) as I read it before I began writing reviews and blogging, but here is my Wethering the Storm (The Storm, #2 review.

Taming the Storm (The Storm #3)
by Samantha Towle
Lyla Summers hates men. Okay, maybe hate is a strong word … Lyla intensely dislikes men.
Her father has let her down her whole life. Her brother betrayed her in the worst way possible. And her past relationship experiences with men have been less than great.
Lyla is focussing all her energy into her band, Vintage, so when they receive an offer to sign with TMS Records, it seems that things are finally turning around for her. The last thing she wants is a man getting in the way.
Tom Carter loves women. Okay, love might be pushing it … Tom enjoys screwing lots of women.
When tragedy befalls his best friend, Tom finds himself making a promise to the big man upstairs – he’ll change his ways, if he saves the woman his best friend loves.
Tom’s prayer is answered. Now he has to change. Which means no sleeping around.
After Vintage’s manager breaks her leg skiing, Tom steps in as tour manager, and Lyla finds herself on tour with the man whore of rock.
Put one perpetually horny Tom and one sex resistant Lyla together, equals a recipe for disaster. Or so you’d think…
But an unexpected friendship is formed. A closeness neither of them expected. Putting one chastity belt and one lamp that is in desperate need of rubbing, to the test.
Will the sex storm that is Tom Carter, finally find himself tamed by the rock chick with a hardened heart, or will he go back to his womanizing ways…?
