Do you know what it feels like right before lightning strikes? How you can feel the current running through your veins? The trembles of warning that ripple through the air? It was a thrill Tamar King chased all her life until it became the very thing she had to escape.
For the last four years, Tamar King has hidden herself in an isolated world she created. She was safe. No one could touch her. Until Lyrik West walked through her door.
He’s the lead guitarist for Sunder and everything she can never have. The dark and beautiful rock star becomes everything she craves.
Lyrik’s life has been devoted to his band and that success has cost him. Bitter, hard, and filled with regret, he refuses to lose himself again, but from the moment he sees her, he wants one night with Tamar King.
The gorgeous bartender is more than he bargained for. Their attraction is consuming. Their desire overpowering. With one touch, they ignite.
But is it worth the cost of getting burned?
She’s a gorgeous nightmare and he’s a wicked dream…

What happens when two extremely broken people meet and come together?? Well you will find out that answer once you read Where Lightning Strikes.
There are so many things I love about an A.L. Jackson book. Her stories are emotional, gripping and intense. Her characters are real, flawed but lovable. Her words are powerful!! Any reader can’t help but get swept up in her books.
Where Lightning Strikes was no different!! This is the third book in her Bleeding Stars Series. This is a standalone novel with interconnected characters. As always my suggestion is to read the first two books before starting this one, but it really isn’t required. I thought this book was truly enjoyable, I didn’t like it as much as Shea and Baz’s story (Book 1 & 2) but it comes in a close second. Baz will always be first in my heart when it comes to the men of Sunder. As I said before this story was gripping and intense, I was glued to my kindle and had a hard time putting it down. The angst in this book will have you on edge and begging for Lyrik and Tamar to find their HEA. My only negative of this story was I was hoping Lyrik’s past would’ve come out sooner. By having come out towards the end of the book, I felt the ending was kind of rushed. I thought Tamar was a little to quick to forgive Lyrik. I thought she should’ve made him grovel some more. But that in no way took away from my enjoyment of this novel.
Where Lightning Strikes is the story of Tamar and Lyrik. We first meet them in Shea and Baz’s story (Books 1 & 2). Tamar is Shea’s good friend and Lyrik is one of Baz’s band mates. Both of these characters are severely broken. Tamar went through something so tragic, no one should ever have to endure it. Lyrik is broken because of his poor choices when he was younger. They had some serious consequences and he lost a lot. Both felt they didn’t deserve love or believe that it would happen to them. Neither one of them wanted to open up their hearts. I loved following their journey!! I liked watching each of them slowly break down their walls and become stronger and BRAVER characters. I will be honest though, there were a couple of times that I really didn’t like Lyrik. He does some things that I wanted to smack him for. I was extremely glad to see his growth by the end of the book.
As I said before Where Lightning Strikes is a standalone novel with NO cliffhanger. We do see all the other characters again in this story. I loved getting reacquainted with Shea, Baz and Kallie again. It was fun seeing their HEA. I loved that we got to see more of Ash and Zee too. I can’t wait to read their books in the future.
So if you are a fan of A.L. Jackson’s stories and writing, then I say you will want to pick up this book/series. It’s definitely a MUST READ!!!
