~Review: Storm Mistress (Others of Seattle Book 2) by Brandy L. Rivers~

Nothing is as it seems…

Everything Isadora Starling wants is right there in front of her, but Toryn is off limits. He’s her best friend. She’s been denying her heart all these years, afraid to lose him.

Toryn Flame has a long past full of secrets. None of which he can share with Isadora, the only person who truly matters to him. She’s the one woman who has never shown a hint of lust toward him, but even if she did, pursuing her is forbidden.

That all changes when the family Isa doesn’t know decides it’s time to reveal who and what she is. After Isa’s recent attack, their motives are unclear.

His only goal is protecting Isa. Toryn will do everything in his power to keep her safe, including going against orders from his king.

Toryn’s only fear is losing Isa’s trust. Once the truth is revealed, can she forgive him for years of misdirection and omissions? Can she come to terms with a world she doesn’t want or know?

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Isadora is a princess in hiding but has no idea about who she is or where she is from.  Her parents had sent her into hiding to protect her from those that would want to harm her or control her and her powers.  She has not had an easy life but had survived and become stronger.  Through all the years Toryn her BFF has been there by her side, protecting and running interference when needed to keep her safe.  He is always there when she needs him but the way she needs him doesn’t seem to be the way he feels toward her.  He has endless women and men in his life so Isa has no choice to find men to feel the empty place in her heart with one night stands.

Toryn was sent to the Earth Realm to protect Isadora.   He was to keep her safe and unaware of who she really is and what is planned for her by her father and his henchmen.  Toryn has loved Isa since the moment he first laid eyes on her but he has a job to do and it does not include a relationship with Isa.  He has tried everything to keep her at arm’s length but it is becoming harder to keep him from claiming her as his.  Things are changing; someone is trying to speed up Isadora’s awakening and this cannot happen until she is ready. Will he be able to protect her from those that want to take her and use her for their own agenda?

Finally Isadora’s eyes are opened to her real life and what is expected from her family.  Her best friend is now her other half and it feels right.  But there are so many questions that need to be answered and the answers are vital for the survival of Toryn and Isa.  Will they be able to stay ahead of those that are after them?  Who is responsible for trying to take Isa?  Will she find and master her powers before it is to late?
