I'm so happy to present a book that's written by my newly discovered author, R.J. PRESCOTT.

The Hurricane by R.J. Prescott 
Publication date: February 16th 2015 
Genres: New Adult, Romance


Emily McCarthy is living in fear of a dark and dangerous past. A gifted mathematician, she is little more than a hollow, broken shell, trying desperately to make ends meet long enough to finish her degree. 

Through an unlikely friendship with the aging, cantankerous owner of an old boxing gym, Em is thrown into the path of the most dangerous man that she has ever met.

Cormac “the Hurricane” O’Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the mis-fire. He’s never been knocked out before, but when he meet Em he falls, HARD. Unlike any other girl he’s ever met, she doesn’t want anything from him. Just being around her makes him want to be a better person. 

They are polar opposites who were never meant to find each other, but some things are just worth the fight.



An ARC was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

I know that this is a book about a boxer and his love. However, I'd like to start my review by saying that this is a very good book about appreciating the people around you. 

You see, our main character Emily is hiding from everyone. She just wants to be invisible and get on with life without any attention. She's hiding, but she's not that hidden. People notice her because of her natural grace and her good attitude. That's where Con comes in. He sees Emily right from the start. 

And then begins a whole new story for Em.

I love the dynamics of this book. You will not just fall in love with Emily and Con. You'd fall in love with Danny, the elder guy who stands like a father to Em and you'll also love the rest of the boxing gang. Em is running from a nightmare and Con is her protector. Well, Con and the other boys. I just love their interaction and the way they treat one another. Their banters are also kind of hilarious that you'd want more of them!

I also love it that the "boxing" here is really shown. Some books just talk about it in passing, but in here there are details regarding the training, the fights etc. It's all good. I also love how this book shows how important dedication is. Con is very, very dedicated to the sport and that makes it even better.

Emily's character gradually blooms here as Con's character also becomes stronger. I truly appreciate the pacing. They became friends first, and then they became something else... something more. :) The dilemma in the book is actually quite scary. I can totally understand Emily's fear. However, I like how she just let go of that fear too. You can't call it a life if you're not really living it. 

I actually would have given this a perfect 5, but I was looking for something else in the ending... But then again, this is still a great read. I promise you. You'll be touched and you'll root for them all! ^_^

I was born in Cardiff, South Wales although I left to study law at the University of Bristol, England. Four weeks before graduation I fell in love, and stayed. Ten years later I convinced my crazy, wonderful fire fighter husband to move back to Cardiff with me where we live with our two equally crazy sons. Juggling work, writing and family doesn’t leave a lot of time, but curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a bar of chocolate for family movie night is definitely the best part of my week. “The Hurricane” is my debut New Adult Novel.
