PART 1 What the lightning sees is.Haven and JakeJake and Haven The minute I found out about this new series by Louise Bay I got excited I got extremely excited, because I knew this would be epic The Empire State Trilogy was absolutely amazing, so this new series from Louise had to be amazing, as well And judging by the first book, I was right And I love it when I am right Let s start with the characters..Haven is such a fun character I loved reading about her, loved reading about her reactions and her way of thinking And needless to say that I absolutely adored the things that kept stumbling from her mouth Jake is the good guy that has it all The guy you want to date, the guy you want to be friends with, the guy every other guy wants to be And he can handle the crazy, that s for sure I loved reading about them meeting each other, about them getting closer to each other, etc I simply loved reading about them I should say that Louise could have omitted the last paragraph of Jake s POV in this book, because it would become interesting that way But, even in that case, Jake is such a good guy that no one would believe he was a jerk to Haven Anyway, it could have become interesting.What the Lightning Sees Part 1 is an great beginning to an exciting new series that will keep us entertained, mesmerized and interested to the end The story is refreshing and original and it seems like something completely different from any other book Louise Bay has created and developed another beautiful story that will keep us on our toes, not wanting the story to end.I guarantee you that you will LOVE this and that you won t be able to take it out of your minds You will look forward to the sequel and the sequel after that This is a story you DO NOT WANT TO MISS Louise Bay did it again And I am so freaking excited that I were part of this tour What the Lightning Sees Part 1 receives 5 Amazing Stars, because it simply couldn t any better PART 2 Another amazing sequel by the talented Louise Bay I am telling you She is the Queen of Serials One word that could fully describe this part is fulfilling.We saw emotion, tears, laughter, incredibly almost ridiculous situations, immense heat and fear.It s so short yet, so complete We travel along with it, following the characters and their lives, just like we would in a TV show It looked and felt real and tangible.Not to mention it is extremely unpredictable You won t see anything happen It will keep you locked on your seats Haven grew in this part She found her strength, her beauty inner and outer She found herself in this volume and I was so happy to see it happening One of the many things I loved about his one is that help came from somewhere unexpected, from an external factor that you never predicted It was help that Haven needed but hadn t realized it yet.Because sometimes, we need a fairy Godmother to show us the way Because sometimes, we need a handsome and caring man to love and support us.And unfortunately, sometimes, luck is not with us, not 100% That was something Jake learnt the hard way in the end.I ve got to tell you that the ending had me gasping Oh no This can t be happening and Oh, something tells me he will act like a jerk Can t really blame him, but I do some jerk ish behaviour What the Lightning Sees is a series you must read It s fresh, entertaining, sexy and sweet at the same time, invigorating and fascinating Louise Bay can do no wrong What the Lightning Sees Part 2 receives 5 Amazing Stars PART 3 What an amazing end to a truly beautiful story I have said it before and I don t know how many times I will continue to say it Louise Bay is the Queen of serials Writing serial isn t easy You have to know the right moment when you must press Pause to your story, the right pace and flow your story must maintain and a different million little things that must be done right If one thing goes down, everything follows Each part ought to be intriguing enough for the reader to want to continue to the next part It s an intricate balance that the author should keep in order to have a successful and well written serial And Louise Bay does it so effortlessly like it is the easiest thing to do in the world Like she is meant to do just this.So, I recommend her work, without a single doubt in my mind The Empire State Trilogy was equally amazing and I adore it If you like serials, then Louise Bay is your girl Now, about What the Lightning Sees Part 3 First of all, I d like to say that I loved Part 1 and 2 They were beautifully written, with an elegant and natural flow and great characters But Part 3 That was mesmerizing I adored every single page of it I even started to read slower than I usually do, because I wanted to savor it I didn t want it to come to an end, but at the same time, I wanted the happily ever after for these two characters whom I ve come to love and hold in my heart.It was a truly beautiful story that I loved and will always cherish, thanks to Part 3 It took the whole serial to another level I loved the fact that we saw the two characters dwell with themselves, trying to solve their problems on their own and together at the same time They had their own worries and concerns they were as independent as they were dependent on each other It was a remarkable thing to see I also loved the fact that Haven grew and thrived in this last part She came to know herself much better and deeper She discovered herself under a new light, thanks to her Yes, Jake gave her the push she needed in the first and second part But it was her strength, her character who took the reins and did what was necessary for her to be happy She loved Jake but she also learnt to love herself in the process, and it was a marvelous sight So, What the Lightning Sees Part 3 receives INFINITE STARS, because I simply adored it Which means..that the Lightning Series has received 5 Star reviews for each part And that means Hurry Up Buy this serial What can I say about Louise Bay that hasn t be said before And the best part, she really deserves all the praise Louise is a brilliant writer and I m glad that I have been lucky enough to read all her works Parisian Night is absolutely stunning Jake is a walk wet dream He s not just rich, but smart and witty He s a talented photographer but just does that for fun There is so much to him, but he only shows that to a select few.Haven is very prim and proper at work, so much so that no really cares for her Like Jake, she only had two people that know the real Haven Although she wants to be liked by those she works with, she just doesn t really know what to do to befriend them.Jake sees something in Haven that most don t and now that she s on his radar, he ll stop at nothing to have her The he learns about her, the he wants to know She is definitely not a one time and leave em kind of girl.The passion Jake and Haven having is just what the other needs Their relationship started out unconventionally but through it all they are fighters They fight for what they believe in, for those they care about, and for each other I loved this book so much Louise brings us a story that has depth, love, and friendship At the heart of the story is true love and what you will do to keep it The passion it takes to make a relationship endure is relentless Although this story ends, you know that Jake and Haven will make it they have their happily ever after I would recommend this series to anyone looking for something deliciously stimulating and sensually provocative. Hey, remember what I said about formulaic romances in my review of Not You, It s Me This is yet another seemingly popular romance that follows the format The diff between that book and this one is wishy washy characters Additionally, the added elements of the awkward BDSM scenes seemed forced and unnecessary and way out of character for the hero, Jake I feel like ranting for a second I liked the FSOG series when it hit the scene 4 or so years ago I didn t love it, but I will admit I liked it Why It certainly wasn t for the BDSM theme that ran through it It was for its psychological aspect The reasons behind Christian s need to punish and dominate fascinated me However, the ultimate changes to his character fostered by his love for Ana were truly the core of the story.Now we have so many copycat romances hitting the mainstream, getting lapped up by the masses as 5 star reads A large percentage try to capitalize on the rich boy unknowingly beautiful girl aspect, and it s become cliche Some of those feel the need to add in an attempt at BDSM as in this case with the tying up for the freedom it brings to the uptight heroine For the love of all things holy stop with the now cliched formulas Authors can have the mechanics down, but without a different storyline, the familiarity just makes the book boring I m convinced this author writes well My only gripe is with the storyline itself. You had me at Paris.
