Disturbance: The Gathering Storm by Marlow Kelly is the story of two people who had a falling out, but the love between them never died. Detective Mateo Ramirez and Criminal Defense Attorney Sophie Reed used to be in love but then their differences drew them apart. They loved each other but their work got in the way and now they are nothing more than strangers who knew each other once upon a time. But fate has a strange way of bringing people together. Sophie and Mateo are held hostage in a bank robbery, their lives are at stake and they need to put their differences aside to make it out alive. The more time they spend with each other, the more they realize that they never got over each other. Mateo and Sophie still love each other, but now is not the time to think about feelings. Can they survive this situation?

Disturbance: The Gathering Storm by Marlow Kelly is very interesting. I enjoyed how both Sophie and Mateo reacted in serious situations. I loved how mature they were, how they allowed the other person to share their thoughts and worked together to make it out safe. I enjoyed Mateo’s reactions the most. He is a smart man, one that understands the situation first and then takes action. He and Sophie work brilliantly as a team, they complement each other and make sure the other is grounded. The narrative itself very well-written, the pace is good and the characters get plenty of time to grow. This is a good novella; one that will keep you entertained and wanting to know more about them.
