    When The Storm BreaksThis was a really different read for me. I mainly read contemporary romance but every so often it’s good to step out of the comfort zone.Claire has just married her sweetheart James and is excited about their future together, everything seems to be falling into place for them and she is the happiest she has ever been. Until everything comes to a crashing halt and their dreams come to a heartbreaking end.As Claire has to learn to live with the new turn her life has taken, an unexpected friendship develops between her and her brother in law Mason. She is at the lowest point in her life but he is making sure that she is not in it alone. Despite her sorrow, she feels safe and protected by Mason.Mason is struggling to deal with everything he is feeling and as the line between he and Claire starts to blur a bit, he gets even more confused. He just wanted to help her and now she seems to have burrowed under his skin and he doesn't know what to do about it.To add to all of this, there seems to be someone out there determined to hurt Claire so there is a lot of suspense throughout this story. I had absolutely no idea where this storyline was going to take me and that surprised me because I can usually work it out quite early on.This was a fantastic debut novel from Avery Hart and I look forward to reading more from her.

    Wow!!! What a debut this is. I would never have known if I had not seen somewhere that this is her first novel. This is 4.5 star romantic suspense. Claire is on cloud nine but in a matter of 24 hours she's in hell. She doesn't know how to crawl out of this hell she's living in. Months later, she finally gets to put back pieces of her life back together with the help of Mason, her brother in law. But her troubles are far from over. No one is safe, someone is out to hurt her and her loved ones. Will they be saved in time? This story kept me on the edge of my seat from the very first page read to the very last one. Quite the roller coaster ride of adrenaline. This is not an overly sad story, except in the beginning, but a very suspenseful story with a couple scenes that were hard to read. I never knew who to trust. At some point I thought it was a person close to Claire that wanted to be hurtful. Then later, when I was proven wrong I was focused on someone else. At the very end , I was so far from the truth. I admire an author who can keep me attentive, entertained and has my undivided attention on the story. The web of deceitful lies that kept the wheels of suspense turning all throughout this story. Some thoughts and effort were put in the writing of this story because it demonstrated passion, maturity with a great storyline that flowed well. Excellent plot with amazingly shocking twists.Since this story is only told in Claire's POV, I was able to get a good feel on her character. It's Mason I had a difficult time feeling and relating to him. He's a great character with a protective hero persona but not has well developed. Dual POV, in my opinion tends to make that better. Standalone with a much deserved HEA. I hope to see more work from this author, I'm sure to be following her. I highly recommend this story.

    I love romantic suspense novels and this is a good one! Right from the beginning it has you hooked not wanting to put it down. I didn't trust Mason for most of the book thinking he was involved more than he was. Overall it was a great read and would definitely recommend. Looking forward to more from Avery Hart!

    El principio es desgarrador. Te hace sufrir junto con Claire toda la tristeza que le queda en el corazón después de algo tan dramático. El resto de la historia me ha enganchado muchísimo. Toda la intriga y el misterio que les rodea. Si que es cierto que me ha resultado un poco confuso, porque no entendía el por qué de tanto peligro, pero se soluciona cuando lo explican todo, aunque si que me hubiera gustado que eso lo hubiera contado de otra manera

    Got off to a good start certain areas of the story had me wondering if i had accidentally opened another book in my e-reader, I also found the pace a little inconsistent, overall it was a good debut.

    This was a good debut novel. Mason and Claire have a very rocky road from the very beginning. It's full of suspense and heartbreak from the very first chapter. You get your heart torn out for her. She doesn't even hardly pull out of the rain before the storm breaks again. I didn't trust Mason until the very end. I just had super creepy suspicion that he wasn't who he really acts like. This is full of twist and turns that have you second guessing who Claire should trust and who is safe to depend on.

    This was a great debt from author Avery Hart. It contains two elements of a story I love - Romance and Suspense. The story is about Claire who at the start of the story is enjoying married life however after a tragic incident, Claire has to deal heartbreak and try to move on will her life. however she can't help but feel that there is still someone watching her. Mason offers support to Claire at a time when she most needs someone there and he knows he shouldn't have feelings he does. Mason is determined to protect Claire when someone seems to want to hurt Claire. This was a great plot and I was hooked. There were lots of twists an turns and I left guessing what was going to happen to Claire and Mason. The story is well written and had a good pace. It is told from claire's pov which I thought really helped to get to know her. I would have liked some of Mason's POV too- just to know how he was feeling towards Claire and know more about him. I didn't know if Mason was someone Claire could trust in the beginning but as i said the author threw in a lot of twists and turns. I look forward to reading future books by author Avery Hart. Overall a great debt suspense romance story that I would recommend to fans of this genre. * I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

    When the Storm Breaks by Avery Hart is a novel whose storyline was unexpected, in a good way. As I started reading the book, I was totally into it with "Ooo's" and "Aww's." Claire was recently married to the love of her life, James and the story open with her being on the first day of honeymoon.The couple was ecstatic as they roamed and goofed around when that horrid, oh lord, that horrid twist in the story showed up where James is shot dead. I really did not see that coming and I think, from a writer's point of view, I loved it whereas as a reader, I was horrified. As the story moves forward we see Claire trying to deal with the sorrow in her life. As she tries to pick up the pieces, we can feel the air of suspense in the book. We have another interesting character in the book, Mason, Claire's brother-in-law. She was only supposed to accept the help that Mason provided. But the thin line of friendship and something more seemed to blur.Overall, it is my personal recommendation. Avery is a talented writer. She can keep you at the edge of your seat throughout the story and I think it's a quality we all should appreciate. I look forward to reading more of her works!

    An ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.A great debut novel from author Avery Hart! A heartbreaking beautiful story written in a way that the reader will find it hard to put down. Claire went through the unimaginable. But with Mason's help she is able to find her way out of the dark. Just when she thinks everything is going to be ok, danger is lurking right around the corner. I love a good romantic suspense that can keep me on my toes. Avery Hart has the reader guessing up until the very end. You never know what's going to happen on the next page you turn.The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because I would have liked to see more interaction between Claire and Mason in the beginning, when he was helping her heal. I wanted to read about the first few months of them.I'll be waiting for Avery Hart's next novel!

    A Good SuspenseI rated this a bit lower than I would because the proof reading of this manuscript left many errors which, for me, was a constant distraction.The story line is really great....kept my mind wanting to come up with many different scenarios...none were what the writer can me up with...which, for my sleuthing mind, was a wonderful surprise! Will be looking for another book from this author!

    I so wasn't expecting this book. if you love a good read that on the darker side with a bit of a overprotective man then you want to read this. For Avery's first book, I think it's great. She's now am author to watch for me!

    2 1/2 stars. This book could've been good. But things took a questionable turn.

    I would give this book 3.5 stars. While it had a decent plot, I felt that it did have some loose ends that needed better explaining. SPOILERSWhen Claire went to visit her late husbands grave for the first time after his funeral, did she REALLY see her killer in the trees or was it Mason or just her mind playing tricks on her? The day that Claire gets her cast off, why the extreme moodiness and distance from Mason?The time leading up to the night at the bar... why the sketchy behavior from Mason? What about the foreboding song he wrote for Claire? If Mason really had no ties to Nate and/or his father, why did he insist Claire was better off without him? What did his father go to jail for? How did Mason even know any of these people or why did they know Mason?This book left me with too many unanswered questioned.

    When The Storm Breaks is the debut novel for Avery Hart. This was a three and a half star read for me and that’s not a bad thing, especially for a debut novel. Avery Hart tells a good story and provides the feels. I enjoyed it even while part of my brain kept stopping me, but that’s another thing.The story begins with Claire Scott, a woman who seems to be at an amazing point in her life. She got her dream job and had just married her best friend, James. Then tragedy strikes. As she’s trying to crawl her way out of her lowest point, she gets some unexpected help toward healing. Mason Brady is someone close to her deceased husband and suddenly becomes an important part of Claire’s life. One moment, she’s trying to sort out her emotions and having fun, the next, she’s lost control of her life and whether or not she’ll survive the terror that follows her.Claire is a woman who was handed one tragedy after another. Normally, I prefer my heroines to be strong, and I only saw a little bit of that in her. It does take some strength to go through what she has and not be a basket case, though.Mason is the man who tasked himself with helping Claire heal from losing James. From the very first moment of meeting Mason, I didn’t trust him. His behavior was odd and suspicious beyond his confusion with his feelings for Claire.The reason this is a three and a half star read for me is because I feel like there are holes in the plot. Not huge ones, but enough to the point where I had to go back and reread what I just read. It actually flows pretty well, but one part of my reading process kept stopping me because something was missing. Normally, when I finish a book, I’m happy with the ending. This one made me feel like there’s more. Like it's supposed to be part of a duet, trilogy, or even a series. That’s probably because I still have doubts about Mason. One other part made me question Claire’s best friend’s dedication to her towards the end. Maybe that’s just me. However, I will say that I enjoyed it enough to where I want to read more of Avery Hart’s work. This was a pretty good debut novel.
