Review: Where Lightning Strikes by AL Jackson

Where Lightning Strikes (Bleeding Stars, #3)Where Lightning Strikes by A.L. Jackson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary: 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…

Oh my Lyric!!!! So let's talk about Lyric. My impression prior to reading this novel Lyric is a man of few words, but he carries a danger and foreboding that leave you wondering just what is underneath it all. I started Where Lightning Strikes knowing that this story would be the unraveling of Lyric and Tamar. Tamar being Shea friend at work has ensured her presence in the previous books. Throughout the past experiences, it is easy to see the devotion and loyalty of this friend, and when the awkwardness starts when Tamar and Lyric are ever in the same room it was obvious that there was something going to grow. This is the adventure of what grows! Let's throw it out there that the first intimacy between Tamar and Lyric already has readers dying to know more, but more importantly it the first time we see that devotion and desperation to fix that Lyric has. While with the tortured past of his own it is without concern for making his own life right, but the need to fix her. Never in a million years would I have ever thought that the story for Lyric would have been on the one that I discovered, but it was spellbinding to get wrapped up in learning his story, and watching these to find the destiny that they always deserved. Uncovering that truth was a little more heart wrenching than I thought it would, but in the end, it just made my connection with these characters so much more extreme. On a side note, that connection that seems to be between Ash and Tamra is amazing. It offers brother protection to the story that while his innuendos say anything but brother it is easy to see the comradery and loyalty that he holds for this woman as well. While I found Ash's character to be amusing in the past it has definitely grown in this story and has me excited beyond belief for his own story.
