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…
WHERE LIGHTNING STRIKES, a Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel


The sparks definitely fly in this installment of the Bleeding Stars series.  Tamar and Lyrik have a chemistry that can’t be denied.

Tamar and Lyrik are both running from their past.  You know they’ve both gone through something horrible, but you don’t know what it is.  We get little pieces of their struggles throughout the story.  And I couldn’t imagine going through the things they do.  It’s brutal at times.

I think one of my favorite things about this book, and the characters, is the banter.  The push and pull is amazing.  They have fun, and sometimes let their emotions run rampant, no matter how much they try to keep them in check. They get each other in a way I don’t think anyone can.  But they have their struggles as well.  Not everything is perfect, and they don’t know how to get out of their own way to make things work.

While the occupations, and issues aren’t ones that most people will ever have, the emotions and relationships are.  The fear of letting your heart free, and needing to protect yourself from being hurt.  It’s something we can all connect to.
