Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Wished it was longer :)"

    this was the first time I listened to Bruce, but I like some m/m stories and Maris Black is a great writer. So picking this up was exciting to hear these words in audio.

    I enjoyed both performances, though think there was a pretty good difference in the duo narration, but it worked very well when brought together and gave extra insight to both guys and what they were thinking and feeling. I did think the balance ratio of Dave to Luca might have been more even, but I guess there's only so much you can repeat before it gets a tab over the top. Yea, so really just wanted it to be a longer story. But still enjoyed it a lot too.

    Nice story for them both, and it was tied in well together towards the ending. :) Would listen to these two duo together again, it made a very nice change to just one narrator. Thanks for the opportunity, and am watching for some more from Maris in audio,

    "Good story...BOTH Narrators are great!"

    This was a really nice listen. It kept my interest beginning to end. I thought both the narrators did a good job! In other reviews I read negative remarks.. I do not agree. Listen outside of the box people..the world is full of different voices.. Have an open mind.

    "The narration was so disappointing."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Soul Storm to and why?

    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.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Verbena and Bruce Cullen ?

    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.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Category Five Stars"

    I stumbled on this book by accident and took a chance. An online reading buddy had commented about it. I am so glad I listened. This is the story of a broken heart mended, a powerful man love struck and a hurricane's aftermath. It is about two men who stumble into love and find their souls. It is a too short story that made me longed for more. The writing is excellent with good banter. I listened to the audiobook and loved the narration, both narrators were well suited to their characters. They are Peter Verbena and Bruce Cullen. I am anxious to hear more from this author and these incredible voice actors. I'm sure I'll have to read this one again.

    "Great storie"

    Ok, I really liked this storie and the double narration was not bad"
    The MC's were very convincing and believable.
    Just loved the Storie .
    The only issue I had was with the narrator for David .... very skilled at narrating but for some reason I could not stand his nasal dralled, he reminded it me of the Phater in "happy days show " Tom Bosly. I keeped thinking that the narration for David could have been some one else .
    But to overall this was a solid love and good storie with great characters and good narration .
