Publisher's 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 has hidden herself in an isolated world she created. She was safe. No one could touch her - until Lyrik West, the lead guitarist for Sunder, walked through her door.

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?

Contains mature themes.

Total Shock to Every Emotion

Everything! This fabulous story has everything to bring you to tears, stir desire, warm any heart, and leave anyone longing for a love just as strong as their's! No emotion is left untouched by the beautiful words A. L. Jackson brings to life and the narration is perfection! Andi and Sebastian are fantastic, each in their own right but together........there are no words!

I am truly an Audible Addict! It is very rare for me not to be enthralled in a book 24/7/365 for the past several years! I truly should buy stock and see some kind of return on my outrageous investment. However, this is TRULY the best of the best! This IS my most favorite of the Literally Hundreds of books!

Where Lightning Strikes will electrify your soul and leave you praying to be struck again!

Truly, Madly, Deeply, Longing Romantic,
Addicted Book Butterfly

ANDI & SEBASTIAN ARE POWER PERFORMERS

WOW....all I'm saying is that there are surprises, twists, and turns and maybe a few tears.

The whole band is here. You will not be disappointed.

Absolutely worth the credit.

Loving These Rocker Bad Boys!!

I enjoyed this book but Holy Baggage! Tamar has a huge secret that is making her run and making her isolate her self from everyone. Lyrik carries around a major guilt for his actions in the past and it makes him think he can never have a relationship. These two are a huge ball of angst! The love story, the drama, the secrets and watching these two characters shed their baggage was awesome. After the 1st two books in this series, I can say I was a little let down on the heat in this book. Yeah there is sex and it's hot but not nearly as much as I was expecting. Can't wait for the next book!

Narration.....HELLO what do you think LOL it's Andi & Sebastian....Perfection!!

Slow and Boring

Hard to slog through this book. Even Andi and Sebastian couldn't help, the dronning and whining was nonstop. I've learned to not totally believe the Audible ratings, (usually at least 1/2 a star too high), but these ratings were so glowing that I took a chance. Lesson learned again.

Loved the book and the narration made it better!

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York killed this one! I read the book and devoured it. The audio version was the same for me. These two reading a good dual POV is the best thing on Audible.

THEY WERE BOTH BROKEN.. BUT THEY HEALED EACH OTHER

For four years Tamar happily worked in a lively friendly Bar but she was secretly hiding.... hiding from a past that had nearly destroyed her so her only option had been to walk (or run) away from everything and everybody and to reinvent herself as a sassy redhead. But underneath her dyed hair, makeup and attitude she was oh so lonely.... and broken. For the past year her heart rate, libido and temper had been going haywire - and the cause was a handsome, sexy, confident, tattooed Rock God... named Lyrik - lead Guitarist for the successful Rock Group Sunder. Lyrik had been pulling her chain for the past year with innuendos, banter, flirting and his ability to charm.. but he was a self-confessed renowned manwhore who preferred his women in pairs. Their chemistry sizzled and the obvious mutual attraction bounced between them as tense vibes, playful banter and a push/pull routine that was about to change... and have life altering consequences.

Because of the trauma in her past Tamar had built the walls around her heart so high and impenetrable that it was going to take a special man to tear them down brick by brick... and Lyrik had no intention of being that man. He had a closed off heart himself and there was absolutely no room in his life for anything more than his band, sex and a good time - a once and done deal... and he was offering just that and only that to Tamar (aka Red). Tamar finally couldn't resist the lust-filled pull any longer, she had nothing to prove or to lose... but boy was she wrong. And Lyrik thought once he'd quenched his craving for Red he could walk away uninjured and unaffected... but boy was he wrong too because he finally saw what lay behind the sass and hard attitude - a lost and broken woman who needed him. Lyrik didn't want to want her, his heart had already been given away years before and they both knew there was an agreed end date to their relationship but still Tamar longed for chances and dreamt of possibilities. Although Lyrik was kind, caring and tenderly brought Tamar back from a dark place he knew he would eventually break her - which he did time and time again in the cruelest of ways. However, in breaking Tamar he also mended and re shaped her into a strong and courageous woman who could face her past... and walk away from him.

A L Jackson has written a gripping story of two people whose pasts had shattered and broken them and they're just trying to make the best of what's left of their souls and tarnished hearts. My body is hating me right now because I couldn't find a place to stop this listen until guilt and the early light of dawn finally made me hit the pause button. There was secrets, passion, hot sex, heartbreaking histories, heartache, longings and love as these two characters found a way to live with their pasts and eventually forge a hard won future together. There's a strong lineup of secondary characters including well loved band members and extended families too. Dual POV's and this awesome book was in the safe hands of Andi Arndt and Sebastian York - two brilliant narrators whose talented voices have brought to life many books I have had the pleasure of listening to.

Worth a credit? YES - another breathtaking and emotional love story and a great addition to the Bleeding Stars series - and now I can't wait for Austin's story.

A phenomenal audiobook!

Warning if you suffer from a heart condition. Be forewarned that you may have heart palpitations! Due to the excessive heart-clenching ride that you are about to experience!
Also, you should at times carry a box of tissues with you! Due to excessive crying that will accrue during this book!

“Where Lightning Strikes” is a storm that engulfs you in every, a ripple of its being!
With so many variables, such as hurt, pain, brokenness, and sheer willpower. Then Storm was epic!! With its gust that engulfed you with every syllable, every sorrowful word, every breath! I seemed to melt into the story. Then was brought back with that poetic nature, that spell! Which can only be described as A.L. Jackson!
I’ve often described A.L. Jackson as perfection, brilliant,
But somehow she does! She now gives us “Where Lightning Strikes” which is her new masterpiece in itself. Just a phenomenal book! She brought us Awww “Lyrik” he's a torn broken man. With the soul of an angle.


Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this audiobook to everyone!!! Such a poetic and dynamic audiobook! You can't but be captivated and spellbound by the magical words of A.L. Jackson!!


What about Andi Arndt and Sebastian York ’s performance did you like?
They both did an exceptional job!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes!!!! I've been waiting for this audio release!

Lots of dialog but small on plot and action

Thankfully this was a single book where we got to hear Lirik and Tamara’s story. The character development was good but totally focused on them with the exception of a little more explanation into the lives of the other band members in the past. Lots of foreplay and flirting before the actual deed and then some hot scenes.
It would have added to the book and the series to have had a bit more interaction between Tamara and Shay and between Lyrick and the rest of the band. You see some between him and Ash but not the rest and yet he and Sebastian also shared a long history . Also halfway through the book the author once again started with the triple word punctuation that was so very annoying in book 1. And just as horrible in this book. No, no, no, love, love, love. She needs an editor to stand strong and delete it. Both their individual stories are tragic and tied up in very bad choice made while teens. Miraculously they pull themselves together but you have to wonder what the physical ramifications will be as they age and if AAA and possible more rounds of rehab aren’t in the future for at least some of the band members. Adding that to the struggles would have been more realistic than just skimming it over and implying there no longer is a problem because one band member is jailed and another eventually dies. It is an opportunity missed. The narration was great. It moves the band story from their teens and early 20’s through their late 20’s and into their early 30’s. Hopefully Ash’s story will indicate some maturity and growth with age.

So Much is Revealed

There is so much back story revealed in this story - every bit to tear readers up. It's an emotional story with two broken people who are so right to heal one another. Cameos of past characters feel like coming home to people you love. And when finally, these two overcome thier obstacles, it's the most beautiful thing.

I adore Sebastian York's deep voice - and he's perfect in this book, and together with Arndt, it's an absolute treat.
