Summary

Nice guys finish last, but that doesn't mean they give up the fight. Sometimes it's necessary to keep trudging through the rain in the hopes of finding a break in the clouds.

William Townson is a good person. He's kind, considerate, and the last thing he ever wanted was to hurt anyone. Accidents happen though, and when they do, all that can be done is to pick up the pieces. For William, this means trying to hold together a stagnant relationship while resisting the temptation of Jason Grant, a young man with eyes just as intense as his love. Only the future can promise redemption for mistakes of the past, forcing William to choose between the Coast Guard and the needs of his heart. Can he find his way through the downpour to somewhere warm and dry?

Even more twists to this story

Just when I had everything figured out Jay Bell goes and throws in some more curve balls! Emotional rollercoaster just like his other books. The ending had me in knots... Can’t believe only one more novel to go in the series. I’m really hoping they all make a comeback somehow 🤞🏻

Favorite book of the series so far

This is one of my favorite books, and in my opinion the best in this series. Seeing the series in the eyes of William was insightful, enthralling, and most of all empowering. Knowing that someone can make a relationship work with near impossible odds at times shows true dedication. Every time I read the next book in this series I begin to feel like these people exist in real life. I almost think of them that way; sometimes wishing I could go meet the characters to truely witness their amazing story and their love for one another.

Lots of smiles, tears, and heartache in this book same as in the whole series. Can’t wait to continue with the next one. Thanks Jay Bell and Kevin R. Free who create such a wonderful book like this. Check it out and you will love it.

it was good

decent enough. William's side of the story was a bit dull. Jason should have moved to be with him.

I loved this story from Willams perspective

so far my favorite book after book 1 where it all began of course. I loved hearing this story from Williams perspective. I loved hearing about his coast guard experience.

As with the rest of this series, it was perfect.

The love flowing from this series is amazing. It is an emotional roller coaster that I could ride endlessly.

I'm sad that I don't have another addition to this story to jump right into. If another is released I have no doubt that I will binge read it in a day or two. I highly recommend this entire series to anyone looking for the ultimate love story.

Is this the end?

it is almost as difficult to reach the end of a good story where the characters come to life in your head as the narrator makes the sounds between your ears form halographic images in your imagination. When it feels like you can touch your friends as they perform their spellbinding lives around you. It takes a special author to make it real. So maybe a sequel to tie it all together?

Glad Williams Story was told in more detail

Any additional comments?

William is my favorite character - along with Tim and Ben of course! I was quite disappointed in the end and with Jason. I really started to hate Jason after this book. Great story line and good character development.

Continuation of a great story

I realy enjoy visiting this world of characters. It was a real pleasure to read the other side of this story. I'm going to listen to Something Like Lightning again really soon.
