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…

Tempest Rising by Julie Kenner (Rising Storm, #1)

Tempest Rising (Rising Storm, Episode 1)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.



  1. Interesting... but very unsure.

    1. I'm not a fan of TV soaps, but the intrigue runs high. You know how you get a taste for each character, you know you are going to love or hate them? If the rest of this series continues off the base Julie Kenner gave it, it will be golden!
