What the Lightning Sees: Part Three

What the Lightning Sees: Part Three - Louise Bay Great wrap up to the story. Jake was swoon worthy. Haven was actually likable, prickly, but likable. I could identify with her and her choices. I wanted the last book to really hit and it didn't. It was good but not WOW for me.

Here's why...

-Minor inconsistencies in the story line.

-Too many secondary characters and I got a little confused however I'm sure they will get a spin-off.

-There was supposed to be a dominant side to Jake but ... since the book was written in his POV I thought we could have gotten some background as to why he liked to tie her up and why only bind her wrists. Then there was a little slap on the behind here and there. That part of the story was so feather light that it was almost like the author wanted to add a little kink in there but didn't know how to focus on it and develop it as part of Jake's character.

-Certain elements of the story were just dropped off and not really explained... For example, Sandy Fox. I thought she was some sort of spoiled celebrity who would have an issue with Haven being pretty. I mean it was the main focus of book one and part of book 2 but it really didn't come to a head. Sandy basically said that she hoped she was a bridesmaid in their wedding. Huh? I also thought the issue with Millie was over too easily. There was all this angst and build up then she pretty much called Jake an idiot for believing her and to fuck off. No real explanation, just... whatever...I'm done with you. Oh, and Louis. He was a big issue for Jake but nothing seemed to come of the build up of that character either.

-And I don't get the title...

Having said all that, it was still a good story and worth the read.
