{{SERIES REVIEW}} WHAT THE LIGHTENING SEES By Louise Bay

WHAT THE LIGHTENING SEES
PART 1- 3
By USA Today Bestselling Author Louise Bay
From USA Today bestselling author Louise Bay, comes an enemies-to-lovers romance that will leave you panting for more.

They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover but Haven Daniels doesn’t agree. Jake Harrison's tall hard body, deliciously golden skin and obvious wealth must mean that what's on the inside isn't worth getting to know.

Haven Daniels needs to lighten up and let people in – and Jake thinks he’s the perfect guy to make it happen. It doesn’t hurt that she’s movie star beautiful and has no idea.

Forced to work together, verbal sparring turns into sexual chemistry but men like Jake are trouble and Haven has had enough trouble to last her a lifetime.

Will Haven give into the passion and succumb to hotter-than-hell Jake’s charms? Can Jake break through Haven’s tough exterior and reveal the sexy, funny woman he knows lies beneath
Part One Released: March 31, 2015

Barnes and Noble: US | Nook UK
Jake Harrison is everything that Haven Daniels hates about men: over-confident, born into money and too handsome for his own good. Haven finds it difficult to keep her opinions to herself and can’t help but tell Jake exactly what she thinks of him, again and again.
Haven Daniels is uptight, smart and a bit of a bitch – the perfect challenge for Jake. It doesn’t hurt that she’s movie star beautiful and has no idea.

Jake “Harry” Harrison is everything that Haven Daniels loathes, he has money, confidence and good 
looks. She assumes he comes from a good background with a trust fund which is the opposite to her
 life and as such she hates that he seems to have it all.

I love Louise Bay’s writing style and her Empire State Series is one of my go to books to re-read when I need a pick me up. I was seriously worried that she wouldn’t be able to top the wonderful Ethan Scott but I should have known better her writing just keeps getting better and better. 
As usual her characterization is excellent and you will find yourself cheering these two on as they struggle to find their way.

 Haven is feisty and calls it exactly as it is, you will find yourself laughing out loud at her treatment of Harry, she has no filter what so ever and calls a spade a spade !

Although this was a novella it was just the right size for me as I couldn’t put it down and had to finish it in one sitting even though that meant I was reading til 3am on a Saturday morning. Please bring on book two as I doubt I will get enough of Harry / Jake.
Adult Contemporary Novella Series
Part Two Release: April 27, 2015
Haven had thought she was wrong about Jake, but apparently she should have trusted her instincts. He wasn’t the man she thought he was. The chink that Jake managed to put in her armor has healed over. She’s shut down and as far as she’s concerned, it’s all business between them from now on. 



Thrown together on another assignment, anger, frustration and jealousy are at the forefront of Jake’s emotions. Will Jake convince Haven that he really cares or will he let her go as she insists he must?

Jake and Haven are back and still fighting their obvious attraction to each other.
In book two Haven has over heard a conversation and taken advantage and run away from Jake.
I don’t want to spoil the plot of this wonderful book so I will just say that Haven is still as uptight and Jake is still trying to get her to let him in.
As always Louise Bay’s writing style is fabulous and effortless. She makes her characters so lifelike that at one point I wanted to reach into the book grab Haven by the throat and shake some much needed sense into her, however I won’t tell you what I wanted to do to Jake I will leave that to your imagination.
I always look forward to the new offering by Louise but I think this might just be one of the best books yet. The sex scenes are wonderful and touching and Louise manages to introduce bondage while still making you feel as if the two main characters are making love.
All this and a wonderful cliffhanger, I seriously need book 3 now and be warned Louise I will be stalking your author pages for spoilers and updates !



Jake and Haven have finally found a way to be together. Haven realized that she is ready to trust Jake and wants to open up to him. For Jake, Haven isn’t an option, she’s not just another girl, she’s his future. He’s certain of that, or he was.
Jake has been delivered life-changing news that he is yet to share with Haven. Will he confide in Haven and if he does, is their bond strong enough to withstand the bombshell?
What the Lightning Sees Part Three is the final part in the series.

Coming next: Ashleigh Franklin's story.

This is the third and final book in this wonderful series by the very talented Louise Bay. 

It starts off exactly where book 2 finished with the cliff hanger, and I don’t want to say too much 
and spoil it for you if you haven’t read books.

In the second installment I was so frustrated with Haven I wanted to slap her at times, but in this book
 I found her growing on me and I actually felt sorry for her. I love all Louise’s characters but think
 Jake might be my second favourite (after all there is only one Ethan Scott!).

As always the writing style was effortless and a joy to read, the sex scenes were hot and steamy and
 the plot was wonderful. I loved the ending which tied the entire series up in a great big bow.

I’m hoping that we get the story of Luke and her best friend Ash next as these two so need to be together are you listening Louise Bay.


USA Today Bestselling Author Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read. Her books Faithful and Hopeful are stand-alone novels although there are some overlapping characters. Bestselling The Empire State Series of novellas starts with A Week in New York. My next series is What the Lightning Sees.
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, Louise loves all things romantic. There's not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films.
Louise loves the rain, the West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, being on her own, being with friends, elephants and champagne.
She loves to hear from readers so get in touch!
