ARC REVIEW Rising Storm episode 2: White Lightning by Lexi Blake
Narcissistic Dakota Alvarez has to blame someone for her fathers disappearance and she lays the blame firmly at the feet of her mother. Joanne is scared she doesn't know what to do now, everything is in Hector's name and she doesn't make enough at the florist shop to pay the mortgage and bills. She's lost and knows she can't go to her father for help. Sheriff Dillon knows he has to hold off it would not be appropriate to make a move on Joanne now so soon, but he does know her worries and arranges a new job for her, working as an assistant to the towns matriarch. I think it is a requirement for all soap opera story lines to have a patriarch/matriarch that rules the roost; Marylee Rush is Storm's. The mother of Senator Sebastian Rush and she is very much the politician she is a controlling overbearing woman who knows exactly what is going on and as long as it doesn't affect the family image or her son's political career she doesn't care. She puts on a good face being nice to everyone because everyone she is nice too is a vote for her son. Sebastian Rush is looking for his latest piece of ass and he has his eyes set on someone young and gullible, he should have learned the first time getting involved with Ginny not to shit where you sleep but this young nubile girl he can't resist.
Overall the only reason I disliked this one was because of my extreme dislike to both Dakota and Senator Rush who are predominate in this book. I look forward to seeing how things are going to play out with the characters that I like. So two episodes down six more to go I have my fingers crossed that it gets better, but just like a T.V. show I'll get through the first season and then make a decision on whether to continue on or not.
