This is the second book in this Series, and it is incredible. Starting where the first book left off, this storyline continues in the world of Zombies and the battle of wills between the controlled and the uncontrolled. Whitney are her guys are still battling Whitney’s brother Dexter and the evil Dr. Karlton. With more of the Controlled becoming Uncontrolled, they are having to handle more and more problems of the general populace. The emotional connection this group share within their “circuit” ...more

How messed up must one be to enjoy the feel of another person in one’s head and to actually want to keep that connection going, or is this what love becomes at the times of zombies, end-of-live-as-we-know-it and world extinction-level events?

I must say, this book killed me a little, I felt the pull from my chest all the way to my toes. Bloody Damn! I loved everything about this book and more so because it is small enough to consume in one sitting.

Thank Authors, book 3 is already ava

May not want to read until Deluge is out.

It wasn't long ago I was asked if I would rather have a heart breaking ending or a cliffhanger. I think these two made that thing and LAUGHED!

If I wasn't so mad, I'd be crying right now.

Thunder Rolling: A Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance (The Storm Book 2) Kindle Edition
by Ripley Proserpina  (Author), Rebecca Royc
I received an eARC from the authors and am choosng to leave a fair and honest review

The only thing that is better than a Rebecca Royce book or a Ripley Proserpina book is a book by both.

Wow. Thunder Rolling really is a hurricane of a book. The story picks up shortly after Lightning Strikes left of, with Whitney Lake and her six men s

Whitney brought her guys back to life. Now she is their life. They don't understand everything about their connection just yet but she is their miracle, so when she gets sick John, Isaiah, Nick, Brandon, Dante, and Carson will do whatever it takes to make her better. They are willing to go to any extreme or pay any price for their love.

This book should not work. Zombies. Romance. Reverse Harem. These do not go together. But this story doesn't only work, it's a beautiful love story. T

OMG that cliff hanger! My heart hurts so much, I need book three right now to find out what happens! There was so much going on and they just all got back together again and now THAT happened

Thunder Rolling continues off from where Lightning Strikes left off. Whitney and the guys are still trying to figure out their connection and powers but their relationship is still going strong. They still don't have a hold on controlling their powers and connection too well and it ended up leading to some

Still figuring out their newfound powers, and the connection which binds them all together, the guys don’t hesitate to do everything they can to protect the woman they love.

If you haven’t read the first book in this series, Lightning Strikes, you will want to stop reading this review as I will refer to things that will be spoilers for book one below.

This series remains a unique one to me, as I have not read any other reverse harem stories about zombies (though I know there are some others out there). In this second book, as the blurb states, nearly the entire book is spent dealing with the consequences of Whitney becoming sick, and what it means for their circuit.

Whitney's evil brother Dex controls the infected (zombies) with his mind. But some have broken free uncontrolled zombies they have free will.
Whitney has formed a link with 6 of the Dante, Carson, Nick, John, Brandon and Isaiah that link has healed them making thier heart beat. A huge group of them are setting up homes in the wildlife center.
So now earth has 3 different groups controlled zombies , uncontrolled zombies and humans but there aren't many of them anymore

Why does love have to be so hard sometimes. Then there are times when you would give your life for the one you love. Well that's where this book takes us. The family have their new sanctuary and all uncontrolled are welcome. They are trying to organize the place and people. Then it all goes to hell when Whit gets sick and it's gets worse. The guys start to panic. Dante receives a message that changes everything.
Omg, I absolutely hated the ending and not because of the writing. It's all the pain

Middle book syndrome

I like this a little less than the first but I still enjoyed it immensely. I think this suffered a bit from middle book syndrome (it's like middle child syndrome for books). The poor middle books never get the same attention as the first and last ones.

I digress. This is still a fantastic series but I grew a bit tired of everyone acting like a martyr. They never stop and talk to each other before doing something stupid. They're all so ready to sacrifice themselves for the gr

The story started right after they have rescued John from Whitney's evil mastermind of a brother, Dex; and with Dante getting his body parts slowly. However, since they are now seemingly human again, they are now prone to exposure to diseases. Only, they didn't expect to deal with it sooner and it happened to the least expected person. They have to act fast or all will be lost.

OH. MY. GOD. I am sitting here, gasping, then screaming after reading that plot twist and then seriously contemplating

Wow. WOW. Mind. Blown. I was soooo not prepared for that ending. I think my mouth might still be hanging open a little bit. This series is so creative, so innovative, and so insightful. I have a lot of favorite Rebecca Royce books and series, but this is right up there at the tippy top. Who would have thought that the lives and love of six technically dead men could be so compelling and evocative? This is definitely not your typical zombie story (hopefully Whitney will forgive me for using the z ...more

This book had me holding my breath and sniffling quite a bit.

After the destruction of Roanoke, Whitney, who told everyone to run, is now running out of energy.

Zero has become a refuge and with so many new arrivals there are problems every day. What they didn't realize was the circuit that binds them was also now killing Whitney. The energy the guys are pumping through to her is preventing the natural healing that a fever does.

I am loving this series so far and book two Thunder Rolling just amped it up a notch. If you have not read the first book, I would recommend to, so that you know what is going on and the characters. That being said this does end on a cliffhanger but, I believe it helps to lead up to the third book. As with the first, there is action, drama, suspense, a touch of danger, humor and just down right a well written book. The characters are fun and bada@@.

In Thunder Rolling we have Whitney

My heart is utterly broken right now. As if Whit and her guys hadn't already been to heck and back already. I have faith that in book three (the conclusion of their story) it will be worth this pain. The bulk of the story is trying to learn what's wrong with Whit and trying to get her better. Suffice to say LOTS happens alongside this....our gang sticks together and desperately tries to find usual roadblocks, surprises and evil jerks pop up....yet our crew fight no matter what.

I love this book!!!! It’s one of the only post-apocalyptic, zombie books I love! I love Whitney, Dante, Brandon, Nick, Carson, John, and Isaiah!!!! This book has so many turns and twists, and the end is so suspenseful!!!! I need to know what Whitlee, as Dante calls her, will do to get her guys back! And how are they going to end this mess with Dex and the bad doctor!? I loved this book more than the first because it centered on Whitney, and her guys more.

3 Stars!
Slight Spoilers!
Through no fault of her own, Whitley spends a lot of her time in this book out-of-action. Although it made sense for the story, I prefer my female main characters taking ass and kicking names ;)
The action was fast and the story kept me on my toes. However, I found that the book seemed more lik

No spoilers of any kind except this and that is there is a wicked cliffhanger at the end of this story.
But other than that I absolutely loved this book and I am impatiently waiting for the next book in this series.
Rebecca Royce and Ripley Proserpina make an amazing story weaving team.
They like to take their readers on awesome roller coaster rides and leave them wanting and needing more by the time they get to the end of the ride.
So yes I most definitely do recommend this book but if you have

This second book in the series continues to build on the action of the first book. Whitney and her men are still learning a lot about their abilities and some of them apparently come at a great cost.

I have really been enjoying this storyline and it is different from what I typically read. It is definitely more than just a zombie story. I love how all the relationships are growing and they really are learning to rely on one another.

There are some real surprises and heartbreak in this

Readers are once again treated to Whitney's world. A world that has been turned upside down. Now Whitney is fighting for her life and her men will do all that they can to help Whitney. Their love is strong and nothing will stand in their way. I enjoyed seeing the relationships deepen as they fight not only to survive but for their love as well. It was nice to see Whitney grow as her story progresses. Their story is an interesting twist on zombies and romance. It is full of emotions and at times ...more

Have tissues. Be ready to bawl your eyes out. This story is as unique as the characters in this book. He whole time through this book I was like, nicks my favorite. Dante’s my favorite. Brandon’s my favorite..... I think they’re all my favorites. It’s heartbreaking to read about Dante deciding what’s best for Whitney. To watch Whitney suffer. This is a perfect follow up, you are already invested in these characters and this book only makes you love them more...or you know hate them. But the endi ...more

Intense and Amazing!

Once again these two authors have written a book that is filled with action, suspense and intrigue. The main characters have grown in their relationship and are still finding out who they are and what special qualities they each possess. The story is intense from the first chapter right to the end. It kept me guessing and definitely on the edge of my seat. I love these characters and their amazing (and steamy) interactions. I can’t wait to read how this story fina

( John, Isaiah, Nick, Brandon, Dante, and Carson )
Loved the characters + the storytelling !
It has all the ingredients that you need for a great book!

I forgot how much I loved this story until I started reading again. Whitley is an amazing character. She just wants to be with her guys and help them no matter what. Being in charge of an uncontrolled group isn't what she wanted. When she becomes ill we find out how much the guys are willing to do for her. The ending is hard and will make you want to scream. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Thunder Rolling is another great book in the Storm series. I was skeptical when I started this series since it was set in a post apocalyptic world where there are “zombies” but I’m so glad I took a chance. This series has amazingly engaging characters and in Thunder Rolling you will be on the edge of your seat the entire time. The end of this book ends in a heart stopping cliff hanger but I know book four will be worth the wait. Bravo on another great book!

Ripley and Rebecca do not disappoint with book two of this series. We dive into the groups connection and feel the love they all share for Whitney. Struggles, feels, page turning suspense and then BAM. The cliffhanger made me want to scream. They all fought so hard and then that! It was so good and so unexpected and now I’m so obsessed. I love all books by Rebecca and Ripley and this one was no exception. Read Read Read.

What do you do when the love of your life gets sick? Anything. This was a great follow up to Lightning Strikes. We got to see the characters develop more and see just what they were all willing to do for Whitney. This book makes your heart break, heal, and break again. This book in the series ends on quite the cliff hanger and I can't wait to read what is next. I have to know what happens, I'm very invested in these characters!  I would definitely recommend this book and the whole series!

WOW! This is becoming an amazing series! The authors are telling a story of Whitney and her men and all they're up against to just live in this world they're in. There's suspense, bad guys (of course), and just their love story. You must read the first book to know what's going on but don't start to think you'll know what's happening because the authors are good at putting surprising the reader. The ending though be prepared it's a doozy! Can't wait for the next book!!
