Secrets, Sex and Scandals ...

Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy... Get ready. The storm is coming.

Nestled among rolling hills and painted with vibrant wildflowers, the bucolic town of Storm, Texas, seems like nothing short of perfection.

But there are secrets beneath the facade. Dark secrets. Powerful secrets. The kind that can destroy lives and tear families apart. The kind that can cut through a town like a tempest, leaving jealousy and destruction in its wake, along with shattered hopes and broken dreams. All it takes is one little thing to shatter that polish.

Ginny Moreno didn't mean to do it, but when she came home to Storm, she brought the tempest with her. And now everyone will be caught in its fury...

This about a small town called Storm, Texas. A town filled with a sheriff, an abusive drunk, cheaters, and a death that brings secrets to light. This is the first in a series of books. Where one leaves off, the next one picks up. In this one I about cried the whole time reading it. So sit back and get ready for the drama to unfold. *RECEIVED A COPY FROM PUBLISHER FOR HONEST REVIEW*

Welcome to Storm, Texas. Set deep in the hill country and rife with little white lies, guilty secrets and rampant infidelity; nothing says soap opera like this quaint little town. But unlike the glitz, glamour and plastic facade of modern TV shows, real people, living real life drama and quite often just trying to survive, populate Storm. Some live the high life as small town royalty, while others are struggling each and every day in the ghettos of this rural setting. And while the townsfolk of Storm are well accustomed to tragedy, it’s the latest heartbreak that introduces us to this understated community and its diverse population and the prominent players within. Storm is like a juicy steak; you just want to sink your teeth in and devour every little morsel, so if anyone can read this first instalment and not become immediately hooked………then I simply can’t fathom your control.

I received a copy from the author for an honest review. Interesting.... the jumping around from one character to another was different from what I'm used to with this author but it did not at all take anything away from the story. The town of Storm has some major secrets and you get a taste of what they are in this first episode. I'm curious to see how this will work with different authors writing each episode, how the story will flow or how the characters will change, if at all. Welcome to Storm, where it seems that no one is what they seem.

4.5 stars An interesting concept - a tale of Storm, Texas and it's inhabitants but told by different authors. Reading like a Soap Opera I was hooked almost right from the start. The stories, the secrets, the lies, the loves - I truly cannot wait for the next instalment. Some of the authors are known to me, others I have not read - this will give me a good idea of their own styles. Copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

Short, fast paced and oh so much like a guilty pleasure daytime soap. Storm is a small town in Texas, where everyone knows everyone else. They have affairs with each other, there's an abusive couple, the town Sheriff operates in the grey area of the law and tragedy both brings the town together and tears it apart. Who will be left standing at the end? I will anxiously anticipate the next installment. What else to say about this series...read it, you will be hooked.

I really enjoyed the first episode in the new Rising Storm series. I'm a big fan of the serial format. I think it keeps the pace from slowing down and it also keeps the reader wanting to know what happens next. This reads a lot like a television soap opera. There are secrets, lies, and a lot of different characters that are all connected in some way. A lot happens in this first episode and I'm really looking forward to reading the next story! *I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

Ah, the webs we weave. The lies, the scandals, and the lust are alive and well in Storm. Welcome to a daytime soap opera in a book, one volume at a time, and we are sucked into the maelstrom of angst filled with users and the used. First out of the gate, Tempest Risng by Julie Kenner as she lays the foundation, sets the scenes and recruits the characters we will learn to love, hate and just shake our heads at. Who will be evil? Who is too powerful for the town’s good? Who is too good to die? Who has been used? Who is desperate enough to lie to avoid the consequences of the truth? I felt I was part of the set on a TV show, my mind provided the music, the pregnant pauses and I was even lucky enough to call the cliff hanger! Action, angst, suspense, and CUT! End of episode one and I am drooling for episode two. Can’t wait to discover who is cheating who and who got caught! I received this ARC edition in exchange for my honest review.
