March 23, 2016


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…

"Do you know what it feels like right before lightning strikes? How you can feel the current running through your veins? 

Tamar King has been in hiding for the past four years. Finally at a point where she's comfortable in her new life,she starts to let her guard down a little. Swearing off men entirely,she HATES her attraction to bad boy rock star Lyrik West. Knowing that he's nothing but trouble,Tamar fights their attraction at all costs until one day they both decide to just give in an surrender. That undercurrent that's been circling around them and making their connection feel electric has finally run it's course.

"Give me one night. Show me who you are. Show me that anger. Show me why. Fight it out with me and that hot little body"

Lyrik West life hasn't been an easy one for six years and counting. Does he have an amazing careeer,adoring fans and women at his beck and call 24/7? Yes. But inside his mind is a turmoil that's been brewing and made him shut off his emotions to giving and receiving love. Being around the hot redhead evoked a foreign feeling inside of him that makes him question everything he's been doing for last six years. Will he give in to the feelings and finally free his past or will he mess up the best thing that's ever happened to him in a long time?

"If my heart was mine to give, I'd give it to you. " 

Even though this was my first read in this series, I understood everything and followed along smoothly. This author has a way of writing so poetically that the story flowed effortlessly. I really enjoyed Lyrik and Tamar as a couple and their connection was HAWT! They both had scars from their past and they fought like hell not to give into each other but their surrender was what made their journey so bittersweet. They understood each other and they both found they they really were better together as one. If you haven't read the previous books in the series,just jump right in and go for it.
