review || WHERE LIGHTNING STRIKES { release day blitz } by A.L. Jackson

A.L. Jackson Books, LLC | March 22, 2016 | New Adult Romance
Bleeding Stars, book 2


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…

{ review } .

I had the opportunity to read this by live-read, so if you follow my twitter, you may caught some of my tweets. In a word, this was a story about two people who knew of one another, who fought the attraction between them. 

Tamar, while incredibly attracted to Lyrik, likes to claim she finds him repulsive. She hates that he calls her Red, she hates that he's so good looking, she hates that he's cocky.

Lyrik, too, is incredibly attracted to Tamar, and calls her Red to annoy her, but he finds her blue sides too, and those were the moment I enjoyed the most.

"Wild, wicked Red and sweet, beautiful Blue..."

Here was a man who believed fiercely in loyalty -- something that hasn't always been given to him, even in the pages of his own book. I loved watching as he goes from a hard-ass annoying, gruff man, to a man who's still gruff, but it's laced in sweet.

She was every hue of color, reds and blues, the darkest black and blinding white.

Energy and life.


This series is turning out to be wonderful. I'm enjoying this journey as we follow the band on their journeys toward love and acceptance.
