Healing Storms by Lynn Burke
Not all storms bring fear. Some cleanse wounds and heal souls.
One stormy night breaks Kane Austin. Moving deeper into the Pennsylvania woods doesn’t heal the heartache of his tragic loss, nor does it offer the peace he longs for. He certainly can’t bear the thought of loving again.
Charley Woodhill blames himself for his sister’s and niece’s deaths. He feels he doesn’t deserve Kane’s forgiveness, and especially not his love, but that doesn’t keep him from watching over his best friend from afar, coveting what he can never have.
Determined to live a quiet life, Jill Walters isn’t looking for a man or complications. But flames of desire bright as a lightning strike can’t be denied, and the consequences of falling for not just one but two men shakes her unstable foundation.
Will Kane let go of the ghosts from his past? Can Charley find the strength to share the man he’s longed for since childhood? Or will Jill choose for them and flee to keep the two men safe?
3 Heart Review by Ashley
As hard as this is for me to say, I have mixed feelings about Healing Storms. I love a MMF emotional romance but for me, there was just something missing. And I can't quite put my finger on what it was because this had all the makings to be a supreme read. I mean the opening alone had me in my feelings.
I liked all of the characters. Kane and Charley and Jill all had things in their past that shaped how they were living, or not living, their lives now. They were all a bit broken and lost and ready to start moving forward, they just didn't know how. I liked that Jill helped Charley and Kane bridge that gap. Connect again and actually open up and share their feelings. The good and the bad- the guilt and desire and longing.
There is a lot of sexual tension in this book. From everyone. But I liked that Lynn Burke didn't shove the sex in my face. And as hot as Jill and Kane and Charley were together, it was the emotional connection they found between the sheets that really stood out. There they were laid bare and were able to open up and express themselves in a way they couldn't anywhere else.
I will say that I found the final showdown a little anticlimactic. This was the big catalyst that led to all of them truly being able to bury their past and move towards the future and it was over and done in a few pages. Oh well- because the very end of Charley, Jill and Kane's story was super sweet and left me with a smile on my face.
