The Calm After the Storm by Mya O’Malley
The Calm After the Storm, the newest contemporary romance from Mya O’Malley, tells the story of Emma Riley, a single woman affected by the tragedy and destruction of Hurricane Sandy, and Jake Mack, a utility foreman who volunteers to assist with the cleanup of the devastation caused by the storm. Both have sworn off love, but neither counted on falling in love again so quickly. Will their love survive the devastation of the storm – and their pasts?

I have received an ARC from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
It was my first book by Mya and I was very pleased with the story, the characters and the writing style. I have to admit the first 2-3 chapters were hard for me to get pull into the world Mya has created here, but after that I couldn’t put it down.
The story is so realistic at times, that it was just brilliant!
In here we have Emma, strong, realistic and determined woman, who decided that man are not needed in her life. She doesn’t need the drama, heartache and anything that involves love or relationship. What changed her mind is the storm, Sandy, who not only caused problems for everyone in the town, but also stirred so many emotions in her after she meets Jack, a father of a 3 year old girl. He is called into Emma’s town to help to clean after the storm. But he is torn between staying with his daughter and going to help those who need him. But responsibility is important for him and he heads to Georgia.
Jack is the kind of guy, that you just want in your life: strong, kind, caring and handsome. He falls in love with Emma very quickly, even though his ex-marriage should make him more cautious. But Emma…she doesn’t want to fall in love. She doesn’t need it nor she wants it. But seeing his relationship with his daughter and how he finds for the full custody, melts her heart.
I loved the relationship between Emma and Jack, but also I had tears so many times when Emma was talking to Shelly, Jack’s daughter. Love id.
Amazing, 5 Star read.
I can’t wait to read more of Mya’s books!
