The Weather Girl

The Weather Girl by Amy Vastine

Turbulence is in their forecast

Summer Raines knows when it's going to rain. She can feel it. That's why the local weather girl's so good at her job. Too bad she couldn't have foreseen the tumultuous arrival of Travis Lockwood, everybody's favorite star NFL quarterback. Make that former star NFL quarterback. Sidelined back to Texas after an injury, the golden boy is trying to steal her precious on-air time. Summer is reduced to reporting from…football games. It's enough to make her quit and become a storm-chaser like her parents. She's stuck with a career that's going nowhere and a man who delights in her refusal to be charmed. Falling in love isn't nearly as easy as predicting the weather.**

I was up past midnight on New Years Eve or New Years Day since it was after midnight and I looked on my kindle app and there it was. I had been waiting and waiting to get this book. I was not disappointed.

I was lucky enough to meet the author last summer and shes just one of the nicest people I've had the pleasure of meeting. She's funny and down to earth.  Having  previously only interacted with her via social media, I was glad to know that the way she is there is the same in real life.

Now the book.. Dude, this book captures you from the very beginning. Summer is in to the weather and I mean she knows more about weather then I could even imagine exists. She's smart, cute and good at her job. She gets feelings about rain and usually those feelings pan out.  She's a meteorologist and all she wants in life is to share her knowledge and be with her family.  When she's nervous she blurts out facts about weather. Most people think shes weird. Most people avoid her.

Travis isn't most people. He's new at the station, ex-pro football player and all american guy. Born and raised in Texas and people worship him because he's a football golden child. Instantly he's aware of Summer, mostly cause she's PISSED he's getting thirty seconds from her weather spot for his sports spot, but there is something about her that he likes. Maybe its that she doesn't seem the least bit interested in him or maybe it's because she doesn't give a hoot about football. She doesn't even like football!

Travis just wants to find what he's good at and not stop on toes. Summer just wants her thirty seconds back and nothing else. Right? Nothing else. Except Travis doesn't give up so easily. If he can't be more to her then he'll take friendship with her and maybe she can teach him something about journalism along the way.

Everything comes to a head, and Summer has to decide if she is going to stay in Texas in a job that doesn't excite her but with a man that does and also her family. She's been offered what is essentially her dream job but she can't leave can she? What about Travis?

There is a ton of love in this book. Also a rivalry that is causing some serious problems. This book was good from page one and kept me interested in it to the end. If I hadn't had to travel on New Years Day I would of been able to gobble this book up in less than a day. It's that good folks!!
