My Review about Safe in His Storm

This is my first Annalise book and I loved it. Safe in His Storm is a story between Gabi and Jake. It is surrounded by the D/s theme so if that is not your kind of reading don’t read this story.

Gabi is a troubled young woman that is living her life to the fullest that she can get without dealing with her past. She is happy letting her past memories staying there and moving forward. When her friends have a wedding that she is in charge of putting together she finds out a little about the D/s lifestyle.

Jake has just dealt with his wife/submissives death. It has been a year and a half and he is ready to get back out there. He doesn’t know what he is really ready for but he knows he is ready for something. So when he sees Gabi at the wedding he knows what he wants.

Jake finding out Gabi has no idea what D/s is isn’t sure if he wants to take a newbie under his wing, but the chemistry between them is too much for him to deny. And Gabi is willing to try but is very honest about maybe not being what he is needing. So we are walked through the two of them learning each other. But while we are doing this (which is not boring or long) we start to learn a little about Gabi and her past. Which she is still adamant about not wanting to remember.

With this being a duet we are left with a cliffhanger. But it is one I am waiting for!
I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

She paused and then asked, “Have you ever been in love?”
It occurred to him then that he hadn’t told her about Lisa. Whether or not it was a timing issue, or just a subject he’d avoided, he wasn’t sure, but it hadn’t come up.
Then, a moment of guilt passed over him when he realized he hadn’t thought about Lisa like he used to. Oh, she was there on a daily basis, but not like it had been before. Not the same deafening, emptiness he’d grown used to. Now, it was more of a dull ache only felt when summoned. And with that thought, he
dismissed any lingering guilt. He’d said his goodbye and was moving forward the way he’d intended. And he’d
tell Gabrielle about her soon enough. “Yes,” he simply replied.
Appearing momentarily puzzled, Gabrielle tilted her head as if she’d seen something new. Finally, she smiled softly and directed her attention back to the game, lining up her next shot and then missing it. Jake stepped forward, called the pocket, and sent the eight ball sailing inside.
“Game.” She swallowed hard and looked at him. “You win.”
He couldn’t help the smug expression he felt crossing his face as she stood by, wide-eyed. He felt like a cat about to pounce on its prey—only she was prey who wanted to be caught—which made it perfect. When he closed the distance between them, he leaned to her ear and whispered, “And, as the winner of the game, I intend to take you home, tie you up, watch you come, and fuck you into next week.”

Author Bio
Annalise Delaney’s love of romance spans from tales of knights in shining armor bravely rescuing the girl to those of damsels who need rescuing but put up a fight—because what fun would it be otherwise?

Writing occupied her time when age-appropriate books put her to sleep. However, the books tucked in the bottom drawer of her mother’s dresser overflowed with love, lust, betrayal, and revenge—making for far better reads. VC Andrews’ imaginative and twisted stories started it all.

Annalise juggles a busy schedule, adhering to the age-old maxim, ‘Work hard, Play hard.’ When she’s not working, she might be found anywhere on the beach, under a palm tree, or where chips & salsa and margaritas are served. But always laughing with family or friends until her cheeks hurt.
As for what she writes today, let’s just say it’s come a long way from sweet. Welcome to the place where sweet meets spicy. A place where stories come to kiss and tell.
