A tornado chaser with a battered heart. The devastated country boy she left behind. Can they weather a storm of second chances, or will their past destroy them?
Lauren Reynolds needs the adrenaline rush that chasing tornadoes brings. Since the death of her parents four years ago, storms are the only time she feels alive. Now she’s determined to land a roving weather reporter job in Tornado Alley, and she’ll do anything for the position—even return home to Oklahoma and face the country boy she left behind.
Meteorology professor Tanner Erickson is totally over Lauren—at least, he thought he was until he moved back to Sunset Plains. Memories of his high school sweetheart haunt him around every corner. Even after four years, he can’t forgive her self-destructive penchant for chasing funnel clouds, or the way she dumped him in a letter and then disappeared.
When a funeral brings Lauren and Tanner face-to-face again, the chemistry between them is as potent as ever. As they cautiously pick up the broken pieces of their old relationship, another deadly tornado forms in Sunset Plains. And Lauren needs Tanner’s equipment to chase it. Can they weather past hurts to claim a future together, or will it be swallowed by the storm?
I would like to thank Lindzee Armstrong for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

As Lauren ran from the storms of grief that threatened to overwhelm her, she left Tanner devastated in her wake. He had thought he was protecting her yet in the process she was feeling strangled.
While I had a hard time relating to Lauren, I was well able to feel her pain thanks to this compelling story. She sought to draw closer to her parents through chasing storms and thrived on the adrenaline rush it provided.
Tanner, on the other hand, had no desire to be in the storms. I related very well to him! I loved the way the author managed to make him very attractive despite the fact that he was a slightly nerdy professor. Of meteorology! His protective nature and the way he strove to overcome his fears in order to be what Lauren needed were so charming. He wasn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination. He had a very hard time forgiving Lauren and being able to really listen to her, to see her needs.
I enjoyed this in its original form (Twisters and Textbooks) but I love the new version even more.
