    Book 2 - reading in order is a must.

    Book 2 starts where we finished - with the Alvarez family coming to terms with Hector's 'disappearance' and the town still reeling from loosing one of their own. Fast paced, the stories move along nicely - new characters are introduced. It all ended far too soon for me - like a soap opera does I suppose .. any UK readers will get this - all that is missing is the 'doof, doof, doof, doof ...' like in Eastenders!!

    Uff I wanna slap these people

    Blech what a lech this Senator Rush is. I want to just mess up his pretty face. Makes me wonder how desperate and dumb girls can be these days that they would have no qualms about getting involved with married men, old enough to be their fathers. Sadly enough there is a percentage of our youth that falls into this category. Call me old fashioned but what ever happened to respecting the boundaries of marriage or has adultery become the new in thing these days. As for Dakota she needs to wake up and see her mom's bruises for what they are. Jeez talk about being a spoiled brat and blind to other people's misery. Even though this book was great these characters really ticked me off. ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

    This series is heating up..

    Like any good show, there's always the bad guys, the guys you love to hate. This book was, for me, written mostly around those characters, and Lexi Blake wrote those characters well. In the first book/episode so much happened. Lots of events, introductions to the people of Storm Texas and a few secrets and shocking moments were revealed. In this episode - which is the second, it felt a little slower paced as more time was focused on character development. That was not a bad thing of course. I still got to read about a few of my favourite characters Yes, Dillon Murphy is one of them. As well as watch more of the other story lines unfold a little bit more. I was unsure how these books would play out. At first I thought perhaps after the first book of introductions, each episode/book would deal with their own characters, and their story allowing the other characters to visit throughout it - for lack of a better term. However, this is not the case. Blake just continued where Kenner left off. I find this a very unique and interesting writing situation. I am looking forward to the third book. I am excited to see how things play out. I love the idea of a different author writing a continuation of a story each time. It's kind of like the story game I used to play when I was a kid.. and now play with my children, where I start with an event, and the next person adds to that storyline, etc and so on. It's just even better with these wonderful authors doing it! The only heaitation I have, and I am trying not to give spoilers here... There are a a few plots lines in this story that I can see them using as pure shock value type drama, in keeping with the soap opera theme. This is probably just the hopeless romantic in me.. but I really hope to see them not do that all the time. I am good with drama and twists and turns, and I understand thats what these authors are specifically trying to create and they are doing a great job. But I read romance for a reason.. I like my "Happily Ever Afters". On another note, the lovely authors of this series have also decided to make a Family Tree! This will come in handy for sure in keeping all the people straight in this little town. I recommend you read the first book in this series "Tempest Rising by Julie Kenner" before this book as this is just a continuation of the first. This series is to be one long "show" if you will. ** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

    And off we go!

    The little town of Storm, Texas, is still reeling after the car crash, the Alvarez household is in shambles, but Senator Sebastian Rush doesn’t care much, besides how it affects his chances in the upcoming elections. Cold, calculating, cheating Sebastian, whose perfect political wife Payton seems unaffected by his indifference, but she is getting restless. A long-time good friend is making her reconsider her sexless life. While he’s looking for prey and drinking foul White Lightning moonshine at a nearby town, a nubile blonde catches Sebastian’s roving eye. Things do not happen exactly how he had hoped, but while he thinks he’s got it made, it’s the girl who might be the winner. WHITE LIGHTNING is slower-paced than Episode 1, but no less captivating. Ms. Blake springs quite a few stunners, and lays the groundwork for so many more surprises. Senator Rush’s mother Pamela, however blinded by her admiration for her son and daughter-in-law, the formidable, scheming – and prejudiced – matriarch doesn’t miss a single thing that happens in her town, and is bound to cause a lot of trouble for many people. Senator Rush is a revolting, hypocritical pig; there, I said it, and it is going to be so much fun reading about it! It’s difficult reviewing without giving spoilers, but trust me, things are going to snowball out of control for some of the characters, and I wonder if some “good guys” and “bad guys” are going to cross that fine line that some of them are threading. Sheriff Murphy means well, but you know what they say about the road to hell… Readers who might have missed Episode 1: Tempest Rising, will be able to follow, even though some important bits will elude them, but still it’s not too late. Ms. Blake’s writing is smooth and descriptive; she completely disappears behind the story so it feels like we’re flies on the wall, and the transition between Ms. Kenner and Ms. Blake’s style is absolutely seamless. So much is going to happen; it’s a good thing there’s only one week to wait between instalments, but it’s going to be a long week! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Hidden agendas.... heartbreaking events.

    Hidden agendas, shady characters, heartbreaking events. Episode 1: Tempest Rising was an introduction into a troubled community of people sent reeling from the death of one of their own. Episode 2: White Lightning digs deeper into not just the repercussions of the accident but the inner workings of two marriages with secrets of their own and the bad choices of one woman. I did not like the Senator. He has smarmy written all oven him and I don't believe his wife is as blind as she pretends to be, she just doesn't care. The way he preys on younger, weaker women makes him a sociopath to me. Dakota needed to get over blaming others and start facing the choices she made and stop relying on others for her happiness. The Rising Storm series is a guilty pleasure that is worth experiencing from the beginning. I received an ARC of White Lightning by Lexi Blake in exchange for an honest review.
