Dave Ballard is a tool. A high-level music exec with only one thing on his mind: getting ahead by leveraging the talents of others. When a coworker talks him into going to the middle of nowhere to scout a troubled singer, Dave thinks it will be an exercise in futility. But once he sees the mysterious silver-tongued Luca Wayne on stage, he changes his tune.
With his soulful voice, bad boy vibe, and sad green eyes that can pull you under, Luca is the kind of talent that comes along once in a lifetime. Even before the first song is over, Dave knows he has to sign him. Trouble is, Luca doesn't want to be discovered.
Luca Wayne is perfectly content playing to a crowd of 20 in his father's dive bar on Tybee Island. Never mind that he looks like a homeless street performer and eats just enough to survive. Luca doesn't want more. He doesn't want to be a star. Hell, he barely wants to live. And after what happened to him, who can blame him?
The heartbreaking discovery Dave makes about Luca's past awakens something inside him, softening his heart and filling him with a need to wrap Luca in his strong arms and make everything okay. But can Dave reconcile the business shark in him with these new tender feelings? And even if he can, Luca's problems may be more than even he can handle.
When Dave finds himself lost in the eye of the hurricane, he'll find out once and for all if he has the strength to save Luca from his Soul Storm.

Good story...BOTH Narrators are great!
The narration was so disappointing.
I loved the story line, but the narrator ruined it for me. The narrator reading for "Dave" sounded like an old man and the character is in his early 30's. I just could not get past his gruff old sounding voice. It was not sexy at all and the story was a very sexy one. This is one book that I can honestly say that I would have rather read than listened to and that is a real shame since I love my Audible books.
Maris Black is one of my new favorite authors. I have purchased and listened to all of her books on Audible and have enjoyed them so much. The "SSU Boys" and "Kage Trilogy" are fantastic. I also like to throw in "Owning Cory" to the "SSU Boys" because of the same characters, even though it is not "technically" part of the series.
All of the Maris Black books I have listened to have been narrated by J. F. Harding (excluding Soul Storm) and he is absolutely the best. Peter Verbena is a great narrator, however he was not suitable for this particular book. Bruce Cullen's voice sounded more age appropriate although at the start of the book he was a little monotone. By the end of the book he became a bit more engaging, but by that point it was little to late.
This book provoked sadness in me. Mourning the loss of a loved one is always heart-wrenching and this book was no different. However, it being a love story always out-weighs the sadness.
I am so glad I found Maris Black. She is an incredible author and I really enjoy reading/listening to her books. I hope there are many to come.
