The life of Tony-winning musician Reese Matheson resembles a natural disaster, and caregiver Jude De La Torre is caught in the eye of the storm. But can the love of two opposites survive caring for an ornery octogenarian with wayward balls and a meddling family insistent upon tradition?

Fresh off the successful London run of his musical, the last thing Reese expects when he comes home is a house surrounded by paparazzi and his girlfriend throwing his stuff into the pool. All he wants to do is spend time with his beloved grandfather and musical mentor who suffers from Alzheimer’s. Reese knows he doesn’t have much time left before the elder Matheson forgets who he is. In classic “Hurricane Reese” form, he moves into the cottage by the sea and displaces Jude, the intriguing caregiver he hired two years before. When Grandpa proves too much for Reese to handle on his own, Jude comes to his rescue, taming Grandpa… and the Hurricane as well. Soon all Reese can think about is how to get Jude out of his scrubs and into his bed—permanently. Will Hurricane Reese destroy everything in his path, or will this odd couple learn to harmonize together?

The starting of this book had me hooked! It was like reading a headline out of one those Hollywood Star Magazines. Heartthrob Reese Matheson comes home to find that his girlfriend of two years has taken it upon herself to claim his condo as her own by throwing all his worldly possessions out the window and into the pool. All while he pleads and begs with her to listen to him the paparazzi are having a field day snapping picture after picture of his break up! 

Not that Reese was surprised at all about the breakup, but he did think Kada had more class than that. Deciding it wasn’t even worth it, he drove to his grandfather's house. The only family he had left, and was determined to be the sole person from now on to care for his grandfather.

Jude couldn't even comprehend what just happened. Fired and lost his home all at once to that overprivileged grandson, who knew absolutely nothing of caring for an elderly man with Alzheimer's.  Just more added to Jude's over-demanding life load. 

It's only when Reese calls in a terrifying panic about his grandfather does Jude consider helping him and only because of the fondness he carries for the older Matheson. 

Lines have been drawn for the two of them working together but the passion is too electrify when they are together and once that lines have been crossed there may be more trouble than either of them ever expected.

Excellent book and there is so much to learn about both of these characters. Never assume you know a person just as they appear to be on the outside.
