Where Lightning Strikes by A.L. Jackson….Release Blitz & Review





Where Lightening Strikes__ebooksmDo 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…

WHERE LIGHTNING STRIKES, a Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel



BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!   My soul is definitely singing!!

Where Lightning Strikes in the third book in Jackson’s Bleeding Stars series and damn it will light you up.  This book can be read as a standalone.  There are characters from the previous books that play a part in this book, but it doesn’t take away from the story of this one.  I have yet to read the firs two books (changing that shortly) but I wasn’t lost or confused once by anything.

Mischief and mayhem and the promise of a blinding, blissful ride.”

This book is Lyrik and Tamar’s story and it’s one hell of push and pull.  These two are made for each other – their chemistry is electrifying!!  Lyrik oozes sexy and confidence yet behind that wall is a broken man.  Tamar is as fiery and feisty as they come.  But she too is running from something.

These two love the game of chase.  Lyrik hasn’t really stopped chasing after Tamar when they met a year and Tamar won’t give in to his advances.  Yet they tease the hell out of each other.  They both want something that neither of them can give to the other.  Together they know they’re a bad idea but who ever said that life was easy.

“You are everything I never expected.  Never anticipated. Everything I never knew I’d need.”

Jackson weaved one hell of an emotional story.  The story is told from both Lyrik and Tamar’s POV’s and this just allows you to feel so much more.  You get to see the frustration, torment, yearning, heartache and fear in both their eyes.  Yet see the hope, love, adoration and trust just poking through.

“And I can’t stop thinking that maybe you might need me just as bad as I need you,”

I absolutely loved this story.  It’s one of heartache, learning to trust and love again.  It’s an ugly path that leads to a beautiful journey.

I can’t wait to see what Jackson brings us next!

Bright lights blinded from above and gleamed against the stark white floor. I hurtled down the narrow hall, desperate for escape.
With every pounding step, I felt the separation grow. A chasm rending and ripping until I felt myself splitting in two.
Gasping for breath, I stumbled out of the building and into the vacancy of the deep, deep night. Wind gusted, tumbling along the surface of the ground, a stir of agitation at my feet.
Above, the storm raged. Clouds dark and heavy and ominous.
Lightning struck. A crackle of energy shocked through the air. Wrapping me in coils of white-hot agony.
For a moment, I gave into it and let myself feel. I lifted my face to the tormented sky, hands gripping my hair as I screamed.
Screamed in anguish.
Screamed in regret.
Screamed loud enough I would never forget.
A crack of thunder opened the sky.
Rain poured.
My hands fisted at my sides, and I buried the memory of the way he’d felt in my arms, the memory of his face, in the deepest part of me, sealed it off and cemented my heart.
My spirit grasped and wove with the promise I had made him.
I will never fall in love again.
Not ever again.
Not after tonight.
