After the Storm: Midseason Episode 1 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Review as an ARC. I have been waiting to see what would happen next and here it is. Just finished After the Storm and it was phenomenal. This story starts after Dakota spills the beans to the whole town. It is the after math of the lives that Dakota has ruined. The story is so compelling and the characters are so real. I could not put it down. The only bad thing is I have to wait for the next part. :-(
The fallout from Dakota Alvarez’s revelations hit the small town of Storm Texas, and things did not go the way Dakota expected. Ginny’s gone back to her family: she’s lost it all; her unborn baby is all she has left, and she decides to make amends, if anyone will listen to her. The despicable Marylee Rush is giving her son a run for his money, and Celeste is showing a side I had not expected. Lexi Blake has done a remarkable job of bringing the reader to last year’s dramatic episode 8. It had been a while, and within a few pages, Ms. Blake smoothly brought me right back to the events leading to Dakota’s day of shame. The transition is so effortless that I think a new reader might start right here with AFTER THE STORM and not be completely lost, which I consider quite a feat. The writing is simply brilliant, and Ms. Blake had me seeing other sides to several stories; there was one story I found a tad unsavoury – a pet peeve of mine – and upon learning more, I’m looking forward to see how it will evolve. AFTER THE STORM is one of the best episodes, and I feel it’s because of the author’s understanding of family dynamics, honour, loyalty, and simply human nature. This episode flows seamlessly and is totally riveting. Excellent job, Ms. Blake! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
