Review: What the Lightning Sees (Part 1) by Louise Bay


Serial novels are beginning to grow on me.  This adult contemporary series has started off well and I look forward to see where the next two books go.

Adult Contemporary Novella Series 
Part One Release: March 31, 2015 

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. 
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 Jake’s charms? Can Jake peel off Haven’s prickly mask, revealing the woman he knows lies beneath?

★★★★ stars

I'm so ready for part two.  This first part started off well.  Haven and Harry/Jake had a rocky start.  Haven thought Harry was a spoiled rich trust fund brat and Harry thought Haven was a stuck up female dog.  Both of them had the wrong impression of each other.  Even though they thought the worst of the other, they sparred often and their chemistry was great.  In fact, I was slightly taken aback when Harry made a move and planted one (a kiss) on Haven.  Up to that point, I thought they were likely to strangle one another, but I'd have lost that bet. 

It really seemed like things were changing for Haven and Jake after that.  They were getting to know one another, working well with each other, trying to figure out what was going on between them, when something happened that's thrown a wrench into the proceedings.  The installment ended there, so I'm going to have to wait for part two to see what happens next. I was hooked to the story and couldn't believe how soon it ended.  I like Haven and Jake and I hope they can work through this road block and get back on track.

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!
