What the Lightening Sees - Part 1 by Louise Bay Review

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?

Dearest Fallers:

There are a couple things I can count on in life: my favorite baseball team losing a lot of games, The Princess Bride's ability to make me grin, and Louise Bay crafting an escapist story that makes even a cynic like me a biy of a romantic. And that's why I give What the Lightning Sees four and a half leaves!

Haven and Jake hate each other. Well, to be more specific, Haven hates Jake and all rich, spoiled playboys like him. Jake doesn't hate Haven... but at first he thinks she's a little plain and doesn't have time for her attitude problem. But when they're thrown together in Paris for an article about a misbehaving starlet? All bets are off.

I absolutely adored the chemistry between Jake and Haven in this book (even though we only got a taste because this is only part one of the series). Neither of them fall for the other at first sight, but acknowledge they're attracted to one another...and that's when thins get steamy. Louise Bay writes sexy literature like a pro...but she giveth and taketh away. Haven and Jake have a couple mis-starts (which are so frustrating but so realistic), but when they get going? *whew*

The only thing I didn't like was that this story felt a little formulaic... I wasn't surprised at all by any of the progressions of events... so I got a little bored with the story. Other than that, this was a fun, quick story, Fallers. Snap it up quick, in time for the next installment to come out!


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!
