In the face of a storm, a father’s love is the most powerful force.

With Hurricane Florence rapidly approaching the North Carolina coastline, all Niles North can think about is his five-year-old son Riley and how he wished he bent the law when he had the chance to evacuate him. Now, instead of being safe in Hickory with his dad, Riley is with Niles’s ex-wife Eden, who’s decided to ride out the storm at home with her drummer friend. Desperate to get back to his son as the stormwaters rise, Niles begs Reese, an attractive police detective and rescue worker, to drive him back to New Bern.

Refusing to help Niles seems nearly impossible for Reese who quickly realizes she’s in deeper than she should be—both professionally and emotionally—especially since she’s drawn to almost everything about him. As the two undertake a perilous journey into the eye of the storm, Niles’s worst fears come true, setting in motion a series of events that will change both of their lives forever.

Niles had the entire trip from Hickory to prepare for this moment but somehow it snuck up on him, and he felt like there were so many things he needed to say but hadn’t. Surprising himself, he didn’t say anything before hopping out of the jacked up Hummer. He simply stretched his upper torso across the center console and kissed Reese’s lips as slowly and softly as a winter’s snow silently falling to the ground. When he pulled back, he forced a smile then began to take off the rain jacket knowing it had the word POLICE written in reflective lettering across the back.

Reese grabbed his arm, stopping him. “It doesn’t have my department’s name on it,” she revealed, assuming that’s why he was giving it back. “So it’s not evidence,” she laughed as the rain beat on the windows.

Before watching Niles jump into a foot of water, realizing there could be dangers between here and Eden’s house, Reese spoke her last words to him before driving away. “Don’t forget to grab your bags,” she reminded him, “and please call or text me once you’re inside and know Riley is safe,” she requested.

As Niles walked into the storm with a bag in either hand, Reese wanted to chase him down and kiss him again. She wanted to help him complete the rescue of his little boy. She wanted so many things but knew once she could no longer see him in the headlights shining in the distance through the rain and the wind that blew him away from her, she had to put the vehicle in reverse and head in another direction. She didn’t know where she was going from here, but it made her sad to know Niles North wouldn’t be there.
The writing style of Joey Jones has been described as a mixture of Nicholas Sparks, Richard Paul Evans, and James Patterson. USA Today Bestselling Author Jeff Gunhus compared Jones’ work to Debbie Macomber, Nicholas Evans, and Sparks. National Bestselling Author Kristy Woodson Harvey described Joey Jones’ writing as “lyrical” and proclaims “he effortlessly pulls readers into the souls of his characters.”

The ratings and reviews of Jones’ novels A BRIDGE APART (2015), LOSING LONDON (2016), A FIELD OF FIREFLIES (2018), and THE DATE NIGHT JAR (2019) reflect the comparison to the aforementioned New York Times bestselling authors.

Joey Jones fell in love with creative writing at a young age and decided in his early twenties that he wanted to write a book. His debut novel A BRIDGE APART is a suspenseful love story that was years in the making as he tinkered with the story off and on while working full-time in the marketing field. In February 2016, Jones became a full-time novelist and published his second novel LOSING LONDON later that year. Three of Jones’ novels have earned 4.8 out of 5.0 Amazon stars.

In his spare time, Joey enjoys spending time with his family, playing sports, working out, reading, and writing inspirational quotes. His favorite meal is a New York Style Pizza with sweet tea. He won the 8th-grade spelling bee at his school, but if you ask him how many students participated, he might say, “Such minor details are not important!” He currently lives in North Carolina with his family.

Joey Jones earned a B.A. in Business Administration from the University of Maryland University College where he graduated with honors (2006). He was the owner of a full-service advertising agency and taught business and marketing courses as an adjunct college instructor.
