The storm of the century raged through the northeast, causing destruction and despair, millions were left without power and hope. Weeks later, countless people were still devastated by the destruction of Hurricane Sandy, Emma Riley among them.
Determined she didn’t need the help of a man, Emma was convinced that she could brave the aftermath of the storm on her own. That is, until Jake came into her life.
After having suffered heartbreak and embarrassment, Jake Mack, a utility foreman, volunteered to travel north from small town, Georgia to assist with the aftermath of the storm. Jake was decidedly done with women. But he didn’t count on meeting Emma or falling in love so quickly. Can he trust this woman or will his past get in the way and ruin the relationship with the one woman he truly loves?
The Calm After the Storm by Mya O'Malley was a love story with so many obstacles in their way. Emma and Jane were brought together by Hurricane Sandy. It was pretty much love at first sight, but their lives were in different places. Both, figuratively and realistically. Her life was in New York. His life was in Georgia. She had a job she loved and didn't want to give it up, while he didn't want to tear his daughter away from her home in Georgia. Watching them overcome all their dilemmas seemed very realistic. It wasn't an easy journey for either of them. They'll have to make some major sacrifices for their love to work. Will they?
