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.

As Hannah Grossman grapples with the very real possibility that she is dating one Johnson brother while secretly in love with another, the entire town prepares for Founders Day. The building tempest threatens not just Hannah’s relationship with Tucker and Tate, but everyone in Storm as dire revelations threaten to tear the town apart.


My Review:

Thunder Rolls by Dee Davis is the eighth, and final episode in this season’s Rising Storm Series and, like all good season finale’s. ended it with both a few surprises, a few tied up loose ends and more than a few things to look forward to next season!

Warning: a tad spoilery ahead

Oh boy, do we have some culmination of some major drama in this episode! Dakota, my book version of Beverly Hills 90201’s Emily Valentine, drops one hell of a bomb on the entire town and, in just a few uttered sentences, manages to ruin more than a few people’s lives. At least from where we sit right now, it sure appears that way! I mumbled a few choice words when she pulls her stunt at Storm’s founder’s day celebration. She is a piece of work and a character I just love to hate!

On top of all that, the hidden and forbidden attraction between Hannah Grossman and her boyfriend’s brother, Tucker, hits a fevered pitch and they grab onto the passion that’s been simmering just below the surface for years. When they do, it is completely amazing and I was so happy they decided to act on it! Granted poor Tucker’s brother Tate gets hurt but he ends up being a bit of a pompous arse anyway so I didn’t waste too much sadness on him.

All in all, this was a finale that is sure to leave you wanting more, in the best way possible! I cannot wait to see what happens next season in my favorite fictional small Texas town. Thank you, Ms. Davis, for a heck of an end!
