He’s the lead guitarist for Sunder and everything she can never have. The dark and beautiful rock star becomes everything she craves.

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
Amazon | iBooks | Barnes & Noble | Kobo
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.
This book, so aptly named, is one of the best books I've ever read. Tamar & Lyrik are just like a bolt of lightning...electric!
I was lucky enough to have read this amazing new book before the release and let me tell you, that's exactly what this is...AMAZING!!! It incited so many emotions, so much feeling as I read, I could hardly stand it!! I finished yesterday and still can't get it off my mind! I was struck by the intensity and the realness of the characters. The story so powerful and deep, it latched right onto my soul.
I just loved it!
I loved every single thing about this story—this series even!
If you have not yet read the Bleeding Stars novels, I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend it. A Stone in the Sea & Drowning to Breathe are Sebastian and Shea's stories and Where Lightning Strikes is Lyrik & Tamar's. Even though this book can be read as a stand alone, you do not wanna miss those other 2 novels as they are just as wonderful as this one! I cannot wait for more Bleeding Stars novels!
AL Jackson is an extremely talented author whose books are beautifully written. They convey deep emotion...excitement, joy, angst, passion and sorrow. They're intense and powerful, seductive and sweet, sometimes even sad—just the right mix to give you one heck of a ride. I'm a die-hard fan and have absolutely loved every single one of her books. But this series, especially this book, truly holds a special place in my heart.
