I had finished this book a couple weeks back but had not gotten a chance to post the review until now. I have to say it was a very enjoyable read. I love how Jamie managed to mix up a bit of romance, a bit of lust and a whole lot of action into this book!
I never was a good girl scout. I loved dressing up in my little brownie uniform, but MAN did I hate camping! Jamie’s book made me remember why, with all the things that happened to these poor hikers! Jamie did an amazing job keeping up the pace in the story and it never seemed to get dull.
The romance in the story was nice, spicy but not overwhelmingly raw. I loved Jake and Charlie and was pulled into their dilemma on Tempest mountain as well as the dilemma between them. Another character I found myself empathizing with and cheering on was Adrienne. She does come off a little immature however as the story progresses you see she is actually a pretty strong character. Most of the other hikers didn’t have much “screentime” per se…but I think in the length of this novella that is to be expected. Overall I found Tempest a fun, little read, packed with lots of adventure and enough sexual tension that you could cut with a knife!
I still refuse to go camping…by the way.
