I feel like this story is just introducing us to everyone is this small town but failing to really get to the "meat"of the storyline. Come on twists and turns and intruige and the sexy and steamy.Its two books in now and its moving at a snails pace. Book one gave us some good juice on the town's people but book two has moved on to other town folks. The only person making his way from book to book is our sleazy Senator, which believe me I love to hate him but please keep the storyline steamy and emotional and for goodness sakes flowing and start pouring on the twists and turns now because I'm not sure if this read is worth it yet. I'm thinking this is either going to get amazing or it's just going to continue to be just a disppointing ok read.let's see what story 3 does because if it doesn't do much I'm done.

The story continues but has much less action in the aftermath of Ginny's accident, Jacob's death, and Hector's abrupt departure from Storm, thanks to the Sheriff. It's more about reactions and consequences and emotional responses. The web is even more tangled as Dakota acts out and ties up with Sebastian; Francine and Payton seem on the precipice of something more than friendship; and Dillon works to help Joanne cope with being out from under Hector's abuse and standing on her own. Plotting, planning, secrets, and lies. These seem to be at the heart of Storm.

This second episode is a beautifully-written story about human emotions and behaviors as a result of the events that took place in the first action-packed installment. These are "do-not-miss" reads.

I was prepared to not like this episode as much based on the first chapter I read, since it dealt with two of the characters I least like, and it dealt with them hooking up. But by the end of the book, I was actually feeling some sympathy for Dakota. I give kudos to the author for giving us that extra glimpse into Dakota's thoughts in order to see that she's just a lost, confused little girl.

The thing I was most pleased to read was the possible lesbian relationship between Payton and Francine. I was going to say it was subtext, but it's really not. There can only be so much subtext when writing from the point of view of one of the characters, where you have to spell out the character's thoughts. It wouldn't have read as well had we not had that insight into Payton's feelings. In film, this could have been shown with more of a subtext, but it's hard to do that with little dialogue. And I'm all for blatant homosexuality in books I read. Honestly, I look for even the slightest hint of it in anything I read, and seeing it spelled out clearly is a welcome thing, in my opinion.

I also really like that we're seeing just how much Dillon wants to help Joanna. He's a good guy that's making questionable choices in the name of love. And really, that's a soap opera staple. I can definitely get behind that. As well as the continuing descriptions of him. I'd love to know if the authors of this series have certain casting ideas in mind while they're writing.

All in all, this was a good episode. It moved some stories along, and gave us more insight into some of the characters. Some characters were neglected, but they can't all be in such short books (except for probably the finale of this season). I'd definitely recommend it, and I look forward to reading more.

Just when you thought the town of Storm Texas couldn't hold anymore secrets more lies and webs of deceit are spun.
Dakota Alvarez who always thinks her Daddy can do no wrong finds out the hard way just what kind of man he really is but does the Sherriff have something to do with that.
Senator Rush is definitely a looks can deceiving kind of man.
Ginny Moreno has so many secrets that can the guilt be getting to her.
If you are looking for a book that will have you turning the pages as fast as you can read them just to see what happens next then this is the one for you

This books continues from the last one. The town has just lost one of their own and is still grieving.

But life in a small town keeps going and those with the power keep pushing them forward.

The townsfolk will gossip about anyone until the next person does something that they can gossip on.

The vicious circle keeps going but it becomes interesting looking from the outside in.

I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review - Naughty Book Eden

Lexi Blake wrote this episode. "Enough said."

I wish the story had been longer.

This series would be great as a bundle to keep the momentum going and not confuse the reader if they read an episode out of sequence.

I will re-read this story and look forward to, pre-order when possible, new works by Lexi Blake.

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: White Lightning delves even more into the dramatic and complicated lives of the people of Storm, Texas. This installment focuses on the ever widening chasm of relationships and affairs.

Opening Sentence: Senator Sebastian Rush sighed as he shrugged out of his Charvet dress shirt and hung it neatly on the valet rack where Carmen, the very efficient maid, would pick it up and ready it for cleaning.

The Review:

The soap opera drama continues with White Lightning. It is the second novel in the ongoing soap opera series of Rising Storm. I would recommend that you read Tempest Rising first before getting into this one. I will say I wasn’t as overwhelmed with the characters like I was in the first installment. I am not a huge fan of cheating and cheaters ever but I know that is a huge plot point in soap operas because of the drama and it was a huge point in White Lightning.

Dakota Alvarez’s head is spinning. She is still reeling about the death of Jacob Salt. The love that was going to get her out of the godforsaken town of Storm. Then with the disappearance of her father, she just goes to self-destructive tendencies, one of which includes the sex-crazed Senator.

I didn’t like Dakota in this version. She’s completely stupid and buying into what Sebastian tells her. She also denies, denies, denies how terrible her father is. I’m sure she had to be hard to write for the author, for any author. I couldn’t believe the comments she was making about her mother.

The rest of the story moved along for the rest of the residents of Storm. They are trying to get over the loss of Jacob and move on with a festival.
