Thunder Rolls is the season one finale for Rising Storm, and it does what any good season finale does. It goes out with a bang and leaves you wanting more. Everyone's storyline seems to converge at the Founders Day celebration. the Senator is set to give a big speech, a betrayed brother will go off the deep end, and some really big secrets are exposed in a very public way. And as one secret is revealed, it unravels several more. Relationships are forever altered and nothing will be the same. I think this was a fantastic way to wrap up the season. Much of the drama is wrapped up in a way, but where one drama-door closes, two more open. And who knows what will happen next in Storm.

Reviewed by Francesca and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog The end is here! Well, the end of this season which is exactly what I thought it would be. The big blowout of truths that comes out and leaves you hanging until the next season. As any good soap opera should do. The thing about it is that although this was a good installment in conveying exactly what had to be, I’ve lost steam along the way and I don’t care about the outcome as much. Of course I saw it coming about who it would be that would air out the dirty laundry, and I’m sort of happy it was her because I disliked her to begin with. But also, I thought from the beginning I would have more sympathy for Gini Moreno and I don’t anymore. I think she has it coming, whatever comes her way. There is one last bit of crazy drama that happens in this book with another couple that we briefly glimpsed in a previous book. You sort of knew this had to be coming. But I don’t think what actually happened was so believable. I mean, the sex was believable and I think they’re a cute couple. I mean the afterwards part. How these three characters dealt with the emotions of the moment. Just didn’t buy it. The drama in this installment is at an all-time high and the pacing of this story was really good, so kuddos to Dee Davis for that. Overall is one of my favorite ones in the series in terms of execution. But I think because of how I started feeling about the series in general I couldn’t give it a higher rating. Will I continue? I don’t know. We will have to revisit that when the time comes.

WOW....what a way to end the season!! I couldn't put it down and once I got to the end I was so upset that it was over. Secrets get revealed, families get torn apart, new loves get found while others break. For such a quick read it packed a huge punch! As with most season finales, this one ended with a bang and a scream of irritation "You can't end it there!!!" If you haven't started this soap opera you are missing out on some the best writing! All the authors involved so far are awesome, didn't miss a beat between one book and the next. Kudos to the editor(s) for making it flow so smoothly that if you didn't know you would think it was all written by one author. I received a copy from the publisher for an honest review.

In the final episode of the season, final preparations are going on for the Founders Day event. The town is especially wanting this year's celebration to be something that will help heal the town after the devastation of losing Jacob Salt in the car accident. Hannah Grossman figures out that she is with one Johnson brother, but has more feelings for the other one. When secrets are exposed on Founders Day, will the town ever be able to be whole again? Can't wait for more! ** Received free in exchange for an honest review **

My opinion is that the Rising Storm series has lived up to the hype. Shady characters, unrequited love, surprise twists and turns and lastly cliffhangers. This guilty pleasure brings me back every read. So it is fitting that episode 8 would center around a love triangle, a town get to gather and more nefarious deeds. I received an ARC of Thunder Rolls by Dee Davis in exchange for an honest review. With a heartbreaking choice, a surprise revelation and an explosive exposure this episode is the one I waited for all season. An explosive turn of events makes this not to be missed. The ultimate cliffhanger. What happens next? Will be coming back for more.

Storm, Texas is getting ready to celebrate Founders’ Day, but dark clouds are hovering over the residents’ lives. Tate Johnson might be bound for glory soon as his father asked him to succeed him as the town’s next mayor, and then Sebastian Rush (him again!), tells Tate he would take him as lieutenant-governor, if Sebastian is elected governor, obviously. But that should be a piece of cake, right? However, when Tate rushes to tell his lover Hannah his wonderful news, one of her puppies is missing, and she is not overly enthused about his announcement. His callousness makes her seriously rethink their relationship, until something huge happens with Tucker, Tate’s brother. Meanwhile Mallory tells her sister Dakota what she knows about Jacob’s childhood accident, and Dakota is now armed to the teeth against dastardly Sebastian, and she plans to take action, “consequences be damned”. Gavin Abernathy is visiting the Rushes with his parents; the Abernathys and the Rushes would like Gavin and Brittany Rush to be an item, but they’re just friends, and I have the feeling Gavin is destined for someone else… And Ginny’s world is about to implode, while she finds a most unlikely ally. Oh my goodness! How will I ever stand it until next spring!!! THUNDER ROLLS raises even more questions than it answers, and the suspense was killing me while racing to finish Episode 8! It occurred to me while reading, that we react differently to some characters’ decisions based on our own experiences, and that is genius! Another outstanding episode, where you go through the wringer, and live vicariously every emotion imaginable. A few new characters are introduced, and some of them are going to shake the Texas town even more in the future. O the delicious agony of having to wait, think about all that’s happened, all that is yet to come! RISING STORM is one of the most ingenious literary ideas I have ever seen, and it is such a joy to see that is done so brilliantly. Terrific writing throughout, fabulous cliffhangers in every episode, great characters that you love and hate – some simultaneously! – fictional people whom you care for. Bring it on, ladies! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
