Beautiful Storm by Barbara Freethy
Beautiful Storm (Lightning Strikes Book ... Beautiful Storm (Lightning Strikes Book 1) - Barbara Freethy

Take the time to read this novel. It starts out with a chance encounter with darkness in a storm with lightening and continues to move at a fast pace to the conclusion. On to the next!  Excellent.

Blog Tour - Forbidden Lyrics

 

We are thrilled to be bringing you Jodie Larson's FORBIDDEN LYRICS, the third standalone in her Lightning Strikes rockstar series. Fans of contemporary romance are not going to want to miss this one--be sure to grab your copy today!

 

 

About FORBIDDEN LYRICS:

 

Falling in love with your best friend's sister is never a good idea. Getting caught kissing her, that's even worse. I watched Lizzie Donovan grow up - from pigtails and scraped knees to pouty lips and lush curves. It wasn't until one night nine years ago in the front seat of her car, with her lips on mine, that I realized what I was feeling was far more than friendship. Of course, I felt her brother's wicked left hook shortly after. One promise was all it took to push her away. Not anymore. This is my chance. I have three months to convince her that she's the song in my heart and we're more than just forbidden lyrics.

Read an excerpt from FORBIDDEN LYRICS:

 

The house lights dim, leaving the whole place practically in darkness. A hush falls over the crowd as if the lack of light was in control of their voices. Pretty sure we’re the only table that knows what’s about to happen.

 

The steady beat of a drum, counting out a punishing rhythm break through the silence. A bass guitar joins in, followed closely by two more guitars. It’s a pattern I’ve heard all my life. Each instrument getting its turn to take the spotlight before coming together as a whole.

 

A spotlight cuts through the darkness and every girl in the room loses their mind before rushing the stage. Flashes from cell phones compete against the swirling lights illuminating the dance floor. The four of them stand there, perfectly comfortable in their surroundings, taking command of the area. Kade winds at the girls in front while Myles struts his stuff along the right side of the stage. You can barely see Pax’s head above the drum set, but every once in a while, you sneak a glimpse of his smile.

 

But that’s not what I’m focusing on. No, I’m drawn to the one standing off to the side, keeping a constant rhythm and not drawing as much attention to himself. Damn. If I thought Breck looked good sitting on a bar stool, he looks a million times better with a spotlight shining directly on him.

SERENADING THE SHADOWS:

 

No one should have their life planned out at the age of three. Yet that’s exactly what happened to Adrienne Carmichael. Paving the way as the “piano prodigy” was all her parents wanted…Only she didn’t. All she wished for was to be normal, to be a regular teenager and everything that came with it—including the decisions that would shape her life. Wish granted. Ten years later, scarred and broken, she knows that being alone isn’t everything she imagined. The piano is finally everything, except nobody will ever hear her play again. All that changes when a sexy-as-sin rock god blows into her life. Tall and tattooed with jet-black hair and a dangerous bad boy smile…he’s every girl’s fantasy. To her, he's a distraction, yet Kade Evans is everything she shouldn't want. Instinct tells her to run, but she can’t get him out of her mind. But may, just maybe he can be the one to pull her from the shadows before the darkness swallows her…for good.

NOTES OF THE PAST

I love women.

And it’s easy to see why. Being the lead guitarist for the country’s hottest band, Lightning Strikes, has them practically jumping into my bed and walking out the door just as quick. Which is perfect for me. Emotions complicate things, and I don’t do complicated.

Not anymore.

Sure, I was in love once, and it was great. Then it was gone. That’s when I vowed never again. Life is better without empty, broken promises.

After five years of hard work, sacrifices, and determination, everything I’ve ever wanted is in my grasp: a successful career, touring city after city and being accountable to no one.

Then she starts appearing in the crowds. The girl I once loved, and who walked away.

Only, Tatum Mitchell wasn’t just any girl; she was my girl.

Will she be the wedge that drives the last part of my heart away, or will she break down the walls I’ve built. We’re connected through the lyrics of our heart and the notes of our past, but is that enough?

Ah, now I understand volume 2
The Flash, Vol. 1: Lightning Strikes Twice - Ivan Plascencia,Joshua Williamson,Steve Wands,Carmine Di Giandomenico,Karl Kerschl

That was where a lot of the plot points came from, okay, that makes more sense of the one I read on Saturday.

 

This shows when people get hit by lightning and get the speed force and one of them is one of the detectives and he discovers what he can do and the power becomes very, very attractive.

 

Interesting and fills some gaps from the other one.

The Flash, Vol. 1: Lightning Strikes Twice
The Flash, Vol. 1: Lightning Strikes Twice - Ivan Plascencia,Joshua Williamson,Steve Wands,Carmine Di Giandomenico,Karl Kerschl

I think if I didn't watch The Flash I would have enjoyed this a bit more. Unfortunately for the book, I do watch the show. And that show has thrown speedster villains and allies out there a bit too often for me. Flash has such a fun set of villains with a diverse set of powers, but the show keeps focusing more on the speedster villains. So having the first story of Flash's Rebirth series have a ton of people in the city suddenly becoming speedsters and the big bad of the arc being one of the speedsters did not thrill me.

But I will give them credit for getting rid of most of the speedsters by the end of the book.

(spoiler show)

 

My personal feelings about an abundance of speedsters aside, I did enjoy some of the new characters introduced, particularly Flash's new speedster love interest who decided to start helping all new speedsters in the city. She was a sweetheart, and I liked her budding relationship with Flash.

 

I also really liked the new Wally here. He rubbed me the wrong way when he was initially introduced in New 52, but I grew to really like him after he went through quite a bit of character development, so I was happy that he hadn't lost that development. Wally struggles with his new powers here, and I very much look forward to seeing him continue to learn and grow as a superhero.

 

Flash's Rebirth series didn't have the best start for me, but I'm more hopeful for the next arc.

A bit of a mixed bag in that it's clearly designed for fans of the show, but that is part of its shortcoming.  Not for me.
