This episode has the return of abusive bully Hector Alvarez. He and his dysfunctional brat Dakota gang up against wife & mother Joanne. Hector is emotionally and physical abusive. Dakota is emotionally abusive.
Believable, depressing storyline. Realistic characters and dialogue. This continued cycle of abuse has one hoping that Hector's reign of terror will soon end permanently.
I love Lexi Blake but doubt I will re-read this episode. Remember this is my personal opinion on this series and does not reflect on the various authors.
Season two, episodes 1-8 (@$2.99 each) published 9/27/2016. Season two, episode bundle purchase availability not listed.
Things are really starting to heat up in Storm. I have to say this my favorite so far in this season.
Hector returns and makes a huge entrance. He shatters Joanne’s world, especially when he reveals why he left town. Dillon and Marcus are left helpless as they watch Joanne and Hector leave. And the scene that so many witness was so sad. And Dakota, OMG don’t get me started on that little biatch. I’m glad Ian was there to support Marcus and keep him from doing something stupid.
Brittany witnesses the scene and really want’s to go to Marcus but her father and grandmother force her to leave with them. Marcus is hurt and ignores Brittany’s text’s. Will they be able to make things work?
Ginny is also confronted by Sebastian who makes some threats about the baby. What would he gain from his threats?

Hector Alvarez has returned to Storm and with it the hidden threats towards his long-suffering wife, and the people of Storm Texas. Joanne Alvarez suffers from abused spouse syndrome, and makes every excuse to defend her husband’s actions and the potential life threatening actions she is about to endure. While Hector’s son Marcus, Ian Briggs, and the sheriff stand by watching Joanne cave into her husband’s demands, anxiety fills the town of Storm with the return of Hector Alvarez. Senator Rush quietly threatens to destroy Ginny and her unborn child.
LIGHTNING STRIKES is an angst filled installment as the reader is pulled into the frightening world of spousal abuse and the inability or refusal of people to get involved. The difficulty increases when Dakota Alvarez defends her father’s abuse making her mother more of a loser in everybody’s eyes.
It is always difficult to review serial story lines but I was given the opportunity to read all eight installments in a single setting. Serials written by one author rarely change in tone or structure from one installment to the next, and yet, this multi-authored serial felt as though it was written by one author alone. The blending between installments was smooth and even; effortless and efficient in presentation.
I recommend reading the serial in order beginning with Season One before venturing into Season Two-there are too many stories and questions revealed with each consecutive installment.
RISING STORM Season two continued to follow the soap-opera stylings of the late night serials that focused on fame, fortune, power and control. The people of Storm Texas were caught up in a bubble of hatred, secrets, lies and betrayal such that they couldn’t see past the pain and suffering of several of their own. The eight installments of Season Two, like Season One, flowed smoothly between the numerous authors’s writing styles; there were no obvious hiccups or problems with the story line plot, structure, or premise.
