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…

For one night, I wanted it. I wanted her secrets. I wanted to sink my fingers in and take for myself. She was the exact kind of contradiction I craved.

The push and pull.

But this time the pull was too great to ignore.

I traced my thumbs along the delicate slope of her neck. Dragged them across the soft, soft skin. Her pulse was racing with a violent beat. I forced her to look at me while my entire body ran hot.

“Tell me what you want, Red.” It slipped out in a rough murmur.

In the distance, thunder rolled. Those blue eyes flashed. Flashed with courage and fear.

Something about it made me shake.

Almost defiantly, she lifted her chin, and she reached up with her small hands and grasped me around the wrists.

“I want you to kiss me.”


Leave it to Red to ask for the thing I didn’t want to give. Memories cut a path of panic through my consciousness. Reminding me of what I’d done. Of why I could never get too close.

Of where my loyalty truly lay.

Clenching my jaw, I gripped her tighter. My heart was giving its all to reject this. Screaming at me to wise up and to do it fast. To turn my back and walk away. No doubt, my feet had officially crossed into the forbidden zone. Out of bounds.

Red was trying to take me places I didn’t want to go.

On the inside, I struggled like a goddamned madman. Torn between lashing out like I’d done the last time she’d been tempting me with the need to sink inside her, to discover the countless secrets she had lying underneath, and gathering her up and letting her in on all of mine.

I was at an all-out war with my instincts. The f*cked-up thing was I didn’t even know what those were anymore.

Not when it came to her.

Wavering, I rocked forward in indecision then rocked back. Getting closer to those full red lips with each pass.

Her attention flitted over my face. They jumped from my eyes to my mouth and back again. She fisted my suit jacket.

“What do you want?” she demanded, turning the question on me. Her voice was a brazen, needy mix of the siren who had no issue with putting me in my place and the soft vulnerability that kept seeping through.

My tongue darted out and swept across my bottom lip.

Dying for a taste.

“F*ck it.”

Figured she was going to kill me, anyway.

Where Lightning Strikes
AL Jackson

It's hard to know light when all you feel is the soul sucking darkness. Joy is an illusion when all you feel is the painful reminder.

Tamar is an illusion.  She wears her armor to protect herself from her demons hiding in the shadows and recesses of her mind. She presents the world with the sure fire woman who will stomp all over you.  But it is just an illusion...
Lyrik knows a lot about illusions.  The bad boy rocker lives his life broadcasting his own illusions.
What happens when two people hiding from everyone, can't hide from each other?  What happens when they break the promises they hold dear?
Where Lightning Strikes is the flash point of a fire they never saw coming.  Will it fizzle out or will they protect it and give it the air it needs to breathe and thrive?
Where Lightning Strikes is book 3 of the Bleeding Stars series.  I (silly me) had books 1 and 2 on my TBR but didn't realize they are a part of this series.  Having not read them yet, I can't comment on their awesomeness.  I can say that you do not feel like you are playing catch up, if you start the series with this book.  I will however, be reading the others ASAP.  I can't wait to see how Baz and Shea got where they are in this book.  But I really can't wait to see what happens next, will Shea win the $200?  I hope so.
Oh, and tissues are recommended.
