Need a great read for a chilly winter night? Then you need to read Storm Watch by Jill Shalvis.

Ms. Shalvis writes engaging stories filled with military alpha males and the women who can tame them. Storm Watch is another hit in my book. Jason Mauer is red-hot and willing to take charge when needed. Yes, he’s dealing with inward pain, but who isn’t?

When he and Lizzy get together, the passion sizzles. Now this passion has had a long time to develop. I love it when two characters who are so meant for each other want to be together but circumstances keep them apart. When they finally get together, you’ll need a cool drink of water.

Although I think Lizzy came across as a bit of a shrew on occasion, she thinks she needs to show she can handle things when what she really needs is to understand the concept of taking a helping hand when needed. But her insecurities and foibles are what endeared her to me and throughout the story, I rooted for her to get her man. Don’t we all have those people in our lives that we want to throttle while at the same time, we desire them more than anything? In this story, Jason is that for Lizzy and it works so well.

The writing in this book is tight and keeps the reader engaged until the last page. These characters (and the ones from her previous books) will stay with the reader far beyond the last page.

If you want a sizzling book to keep you warm, then you need to grab a copy of Storm Watch.
