Months after a crushing breakup, Drake Calhoun feels the need to get away.  He gets into his car and begins to drive aimlessly, only to end up broken down in a storm.  Sexy mechanic Vic arrives and takes him and his car to Vic’s garage.  Drake thinks Vic is very attractive, and soon finds that Vic thinks the same about him.  Will breaking down in the storm turn out to be a stroke of luck for Drake after all?

I have mixed feelings about Stormy Weather.  The atmosphere and setting were great.  Adrianna Dane did an excellent job describing the storm, and the outdoor scenes.  I liked insecure Drake, who’d always felt inadequate with his former lover.  Vic is sexy and kind, and suffered a tragic loss in the past, but his character is not very well-developed other than that.  The love scenes are hot.  I guess my problems with Stormy Weather were the dialogue, which had a tendency to be unrealistic, and the way-too-perfect ending.  Despite those things, however, Stormy Weather is a quick and hot read.
