This series becomes more and more interesting with every single addition and I am loving it. Unfortunately, I cannot say that for all of the characters. Even though the plot thickens, I would've definitely liked to skip some of the uglier scenes. This episode is mainly focused on the relationship between Luis, Mallory and Lacey. I love Mallory's character and the way she is portrayed in each episode so far. I think she is compassionate and at the same time strong but she can be also hurt deeply and by those who are closest to her.

And, unfortunately, that's exactly what happens. And Lacey is the one who is at fault, her best friend. If I have to be honest, I had a completely different opinion of Lacey so far but it was completely destroyed by what I've read in this episode. She really reminds me of Dakota with her superior opinion of herself and entitlement of everything she wants. Even if she is wrong. I am just hoping that Luis and Mallory will manage to weather the storm that Lacey threw at them because I think they are perfect for each other. And each one of them needs a person they can trust and depend on in their lives.

So, in a few words, this episode is as intriguing as the previous ones. It was mainly focused on Mallory, Luis and Lacey, but there are also glimpses of the other main characters in it. I especially liked the one between Logan and Ginny :) I can't wait to find out what will happen next :)

Bring on Book 3 in the Storm, Texas ~ Rising Storm series.

In this installment we see more of Lacey Salt. She is still reeling after the death of her brother Jacob, her mother is ignoring her cries for help, so wrapped you in Ginny that she has no time to help and comfort her own child. She has anger and resentment over Ginny and the baby, is the only one that will voice the idea that everyone else is thinking and not willing to say.......How can the baby be Jacob's when nobody even knew that they were together.

Hell bent on getting her way, she will even turn on her best friend, Mallory to get what she wants, Ginny's brother Luis.

We learn more about Mallory and Luis, along with their friend Jeffery Rush. Mallery is in love with Luis, Luis has had a crush on Lacey since they were in elementry school. When a night of drinking, a afternoon in the sun with Lacey gives Mallory the wrong idea, and then Lacey putting the moves on Luis on a deserted beach come to light, it will destroy Mallory's already fragile world.

When Jeffery Rush gets wind that Mallory's sister Dakota is after his father, confrontations erupt and lies are told to cover well hidden truths.

I love the suspense and the not knowing what is going to happen next. You can feel that things are building and building and building until in the end, the well constructed secrets, lies and scandals are going to come crashing down around the town of Storm, Texas. I anticipate the next installment in this amazing journey.

I received an ARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's release day promotions.

Do you know that feeling when you watch a TV series or even a soap opera and then you know to yourself that you are just hooked and that you are going to be watching it everytime a new episode airs? Well, that's what happened to me from the first episode of Rising Storm. I guess I shouldn't be surprised considering the line-up of eight amazing authors that will be writing each episode.

Crosswinds, being the third book in the series, keeps the thrill and excitement that the first episode gave every reader. Not only that, each episode actually seems to get more intense. In this episode, there's a boyfriend-stealing best friend, a guilty lady with a secret, a scandal that's threatening to explode and heroes coming back home. There's realy no way that you'd go wrong with this series.

Crosswinds needs to be read only after you've read the first two books because Rising Storm is a soap opera that you need to read in order, so you will get the whole story of all the books together. This is an eight-episode season, so it's not like you have to read a lot just to enjoy the story. You only hve tor ead eight books fro eight very talented bestselling authors. What else is there to look for, right? I can't wait for the fourth installment as I begin to get to know more of the people in this stormy town.

This episode of Rising Storm is the teen angst episode. I'm fairly outspoken on how much I tend to hate teen stories on televised soaps. They always seem to be full of vapid characters that aren't acted particularly well, nor are the stories all that interesting to me. They never were, even when I was I was teen watching these stories.

The nice thing about reading a soap in book form is that instead of relying on often mediocre actors to portray complex emotions, the author allows us to be inside the character's head and we can understand what they're feeling. Elisabeth Naughton does a great job at this. I could empathize with each of the teen characters in ways that televised soaps rarely can do.

Note that even though I empathize with these characters, that doesn't mean I like them. A fair number of them I want to slap silly with their idiotic motives. But, then again, I was also kind of an idiot as a teen, too. It's much easier to judge when you're outside the world inhabited by the characters.

The one thing I really loved about this book is how well each chapter built up to the conclusion of the book. I'll leave out spoilers, but every single moment led up to a fight between two sisters that will probably leave them both scarred for some time and will change their relationship forever. And the very end of the book is so deliciously overdramatic that it made me long for the good old days of soap operas on television.

While I really enjoyed this book, I have one minor quibble about the writing, and I only noticed it because a lot of the book took place in cars. Nearly every time a car started or stopped moving, it was written that the car was "shoved" into drive or park.
