Bastian's Storm by Shay Savage ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway

Event Organized by ❤MaE Book Tours & Promo Stars Services


Sebastian Stark just isn’t cut out for normal life with a girlfriend in the hot and humid city of Miami. All in all, he’d rather be back on the island where it was just the two of them, and he could keep everything in balance. The bar down the street tempts him daily, but he’s determined to remain strong. Adjusting to normal life is difficult, but Bastian is doing his best to keep himself together and the nightmares away. Raine’s happy, and that’s what matters to him the most. But not all nightmares can be driven away. When Bastian’s former mentor comes into the picture and presents him with an ultimatum, Bastian slips into old habits. Though he wants to shield Raine from the truth, the shady circumstances of his past form into a hurricane he can’t control. In an effort to protect her, Bastian has no choice but to throw himself back into his old job – death match tournaments – just one last time. Dropped into the arctic wilderness with weapons loaded, Bastian has to compete against representatives from major crime lords all over the states. He’s studied his competition, he knows their weaknesses, and he’s ready to battle for the woman he loves. There’s only one opponent in the mix that causes him any concern. In order to guarantee Raine’s safety, Bastian will be pitted against the key hit man for Chicago’s largest mob family – a guy who’s known as one hell of a shot. A guy named Evan Arden.

Wow!!! This story kept my hands gripped to it and holding on tight and it continues the saga of Sebastian aka Bastian Stark and Raine. I would suggest reading "Surviving Raine" first, but you don't have to, as this one could be read as a stand alone. Me, personally, I have a little OCD and had to read "Surviving Raine" first before I sat down and started reading this book.  I'm kicking myself for having SR sit on my TBRs for so long. I'm loving these two characters.
Bastian's Storm is the perfect title for this story. Bastian is a dark, complex and complicated man. His childhood left him missing out on all that a child should have growing up; love, support, happiness and good memories. He didn't have any of that. He's a survivor and a fighter. Or he was in the past and these fights always ended with only one living and breathing. He gave up that life years ago and since he and Raine were rescued from the tropical island, he's tried to be happy and fit in with society while they are living in Miami Beach. But he's got so much inner turmoil and demons inside him. Raine has brought out the good in him and made his life worth living. Even knowing who he was and what he's done in the past, she still loves him. She gives him hope, light and feeling rather than just feeling numb.
Bastian's past comes back and lives are threatened. He's torn because there's no way out. He has to be in this tournament, even though it's the last thing he wants to do and thought he'd never be a part of again.
Will he come out the winner??? Can he finally be the man he was meant to be for Raine?? Will the love they have for each other survive this next challenge?? I highly recommend this book. It's about overcoming the bad, believing in yourself, learning who to trust and let's not forget the suspense.
