Up until he buys an old truck, Elijah Morgan lives life according to his family’s plan, never feeling like he belongs. Desperate to find his own path, he heads out on the open road, only to end up stranded in Nebraska. Not wanting to ask for his parents’ help, he takes a job with tough, independent farmer Chase McKenzie.

Despite their age gap, the attraction between Chase and Elijah soon becomes undeniable. They give in to their desire, but that night changes everything and threatens the secret Chase guards so carefully.

As the summer heats up, so does their relationship. When autumn arrives, Elijah is due back at college, and he’ll have to choose whether to continue his education and follow in his family’s footsteps… or to stay in Nebraska with the man he loves.

The Review: I went on a M/M kick a week or so ago. I came across this one a few months back when I was searching for new books to read through Goodreads. I immediately added to my to read pile because I loved the sound of it.

Well I tells ya, this book didn't disappoint. It was a fabulous read, one of the best M/M books that I've read so far (Cut and Run series aside....nothing compares to that). I enjoy every little thing about this. I liked the age difference, which is about 18 years I believe. Elijah is 19 and Chase is 33 when we meet him. 

Chase the Storm is a book full of angst, full of trying to find who you are and where you belong. Learning that it's ok to love again after losing someone. I loved Chase and Elijahs relationship, the development is right there on the page, every page you turn you feel their emotions, their undeniable attraction to one another is palpable on every page. Eventually they give in to their desire, and it's hot. Really.

The story flowed well, with brilliant descriptions of back road Nebraska, great character development, the plot is there which is sometimes hard to find in a m/m romance, but not in Chase the Storm, it's all there, this book has everything you could want from a m/m story. Including sexy cowboy Chase.

I was pretty blown away with this book, I'd heard good things about it and naturally I was anxious to read it. Like I said, it didn't disappoint.

As the ending goes, it was pretty perfect, I couldn't have asked for a better ending. V.M. Waitt really knows how to tell a story, and tell it well. I will most definitely be reading more from this author. So if you're looking to maybe dip into a little m/m romance, this is a good one to start with. It'll ease you in to the relationship and the story. Will I read this again? ABOSULUTELY!!  Highly recommended :)

Its a good one to help you dip into if you've never read m/m before.
