Ahhhhhhh! I was so happy to get back to Storm! My not so secret little obsession. OMG how I had missed this delicious little soap opera town filled with secrets, scandals, sex and always another storm brewing on the horizon!
I literally went from one book to the next like an addict that couldn’t get enough. And one thing that I need to just make perfectly clear right from the start that while I loved each and every book… one thing that I really noticed and stuck out.. was that no book stuck out. While each book was written by a different author they all flowed seamlessly together. It was not like I picked up a series of books that were patchworked together and I felt like I was reading books from a bevy of authors. Both the story itself and the writing flowed and matched in tone and words and made for such a pleasant reading experience.
We follow the characters that we met during season 1 as their lives continue on. we get to delve further in and see what is going on.. but yes there are more twists and turns! And EEEEP! we even get to meet some new people who come to town! That made me so excited! I love how caught up I would get in each book. How I would be rooting for the characters as we would see them make changes in their lives only to have my hopes dashed as their life would turn a different way. Or how I would be hoping one of the “evil” characters would have something bad happen to them.
It is just like I am when I watch a real soap or drama on TV! I get so caught up in them! That’s what makes these types of reads so compelling for me. They are fast paced reads that just allow me to lose myself in the drama and root for and against people. And I get so sucked into their lives that I forget all about my every day problems!
This is the perfect series to read when you are looking to just lose yourself and forget what is going on! (I sure hope there is more in store for us!)
I definitely recommend this series to all my soap loving friends out there!
