New Release, Review, + Giveaway: Force of Nature by Melissa Toppen

Title: Force of Nature
Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date:
I met Thad Mitchell for the first time when I was just a child. I didn’t remember much about him- except that he pushed me off a swing set when I was four years old and broke my arm. Not the best thing to remember about a person but there it is.

He moved away a couple years later and soon became a distant memory. That is until I walked into my parent’s house after being gone for four years to find him sitting at the kitchen table with my family like he’d been there all along.

The second his blue eyes found mine it was instant- the attraction, the spark, the zing as some people call it. In that moment my entire world shifted. Every second, every minute that followed became a whirlwind.

Thad didn’t just turn my life upside down; he ripped through it– an unstoppable force of nature that wouldn’t be satisfied until there wasn’t a single facet of my life left unturned. And yet somehow at the end of it all he was still the only thing I wanted.

Haunted by a past he can’t escape- the only question that remains is can I find a way to calm the storm that rages inside of him or will I end up just another causality in his unrelenting path of destruction?

Force of Nature definitely got to me. I felt so much while reading this. Everything from frustration to warm and fuzzies was brought out of me from Laken and Thad’s story. Definitely quite the slow burn these two had so many ups and downs with their roller coaster of a love story I didn’t know which way was up at times. While the feels in this were real, I also occasionally found myself losing interest because of the back and forth these two had going on.

Both Laken and Thad had their own obstacles in life that while very different, still caused a lot of roadblocks on their path to happiness. I felt at certain points there was so much of them not together it overshadowed what they were when they were together. Overall, I really didn’t enjoy how sweet they grew to be and can definitely say these two got me right in the feels.
