Pacific Passion, Book 3

In the months they’ve traveled together, Laurin Marshall and Matt Jentry’s attraction has grown beyond spectacular sexual passion into a deeper emotional connection. Still, Laurin wrestles with one last question: how a water shifter and an air shifter can possibly find permanent common ground.

Matt is content to wait patiently for Laurin to realize he has no desire to change her sky-borne nature. Until a giant golden eagle touches down on the Stormchild and tips the delicate balance of more than just the boat.

Laurin’s obvious affection for the newcomer comes as a shock. And so does the flash of jealousy that interferes with his shamanic ability to heal the man’s malady. While Matt struggles to balance his conflicted responsibilities, Laurin attempts to reconcile her undeniable feelings for one of her kind with her desire for Matt.

 Somewhere between the ocean depths and the mountaintops, they need to find a love strong enough to call them both home to the Stormchild.

 Warning: Familiar lovers (hot) with old rivals (hotter) and a wild curse-melting ménage (hottest yet). Get ready for one exotic paranormal that will make you look to the skies and sea with longing.

Silent Storm is the third installment in the Pacific Passion trilogy.  Laurin and Matt are getting closer with each day they spend together but she still feels like something is missing.  She is an air shifter but has hidden that side of herself for three years.  Before she can commit fully to Matt, she must return to her people to make sure she is not needed there.

Matt loves Laurin and knows that she is his other half.  He doesn’t want to push her but he isn’t willing to give her up either.  He agrees to accompany her to the mountains because he knows that together they can face anything.

When Kallen shows up both Laurin and Matt are left conflicted.  As a shaman, its Matt’s responsibility to do what he can to heal Kallen but his jealously gets in the way.  Laurin can’t understand her attraction to Kallen, it leaves her feeling restless and confused.  In the end, lifelong decisions are made that affect both the air and water shifters.

This was my favorite book in the Pacific Passion series.  Matt has always been a stable character but we really don’t see a lot of emotion from him.  In this book he really struggles with jealously, to the point that it starts affecting his shaman abilities.  It’s nice to see him come to grips with this issue and their relationship strengthened because of it.

Laurin is so conflicted that you feel for her, not!  She has the perfect guy that loves her unconditionally and is willing to wait on her.  She has a job she loves and now two guys that want her.

Throwing Kallen into the mix was a nice addition.  It added an extra level of sexual tension that had the pages smoking.  The respect that Matt and Kallen had for each other, as well as Laurin, was a must for the whole thing to come together.  The three of them are pure magic together and definitely worth the wait.

Overall I loved this book and would love to see more books in this series.

I give Silent Storm 4½ Flaming Hearts.
