Blake Caster has been in an emotionally abusive relationship with Justin for so long, she can’t tell what is normal anymore, and so she clings to the one thing that is solidly hers—her passion for extreme weather. Three years into her Meteorology degree, Blake meets professional storm chaser, Dash Lexington, who is as gorgeous as he is daring. Instantly recognizing her passion and skills in analyzing weather data, he makes a spot for her on his tight-knit storm chasing team. Dash and Blake form a fast friendship and it forces her to realize just how toxic her relationship with Justin is. She can’t deny the lightning-worthy chemistry she has with Dash or how her heart stalls every time he gets too close to a tornado. With each chase and the cherished moments with Dash, Blake discovers her own self-worth and gains the strength to end things with Justin for good. But he won’t go easily. As Blake tries to sever ties with one man, she fears she’ll lose the other to his dangerous obsession—and she doesn't know if she’ll be enough to save him from the impending storm that could end them all.  
Rating: ☆☆☆☆

The perfect storm is brewing for Blake.  Her life has been about pleasing and making sure her boyfriend Justin doesn't get angry, at a huge sacrifice to herself.  Justin is an out and out jerk, more interested in computer games and keeping Blake under his control.  His actions and words are inexcusable.  Whilst she wasn't able to attend her first choice University because of his selfishness, her second choice led her to the field of meteorology and her passion.  It is there she meets storm chaser Dash, who opens her eyes and mind to new possibilities.

The gathering storms that they chase are very like the storms gathering in Blake's life.  Both destructive but both providing valuable lessons.  I loved Dash and how he respected Blake in complete contrast to Justin.  He had no expectations and no hidden purpose to his actions.  Blake is stronger than she gives herself credit for after being manipulated for so long.  This was great writing, an interesting setting and great characters.
