Reviews for Ride the Lightning

Character Review: Miz Love Loves Books

Ms. Valentine did the perfect pairing with these two, and I couldn’t help but feel a warm, sensual chemistry between this dark, powerful man with the warm allspice scent and this beautiful, delicate, blonde woman with the baby powder scent…My gushing is for the loving, careful pairing of these two souls—a masterpiece crafted by Ms. Valentine.”

Rated: 5 Diamonds by Got Romance Reviews!

“Ride the Lightning is a fast paced but emotionally charged read. With the reader hoping that Vahid and Emily can put aside their pride and do what comes naturally. Letting nature take it’s course instead of continually fighting against the current.  Lex Valentine is a great author. Whether it be her fantasy or her contemporary stories she always brings the reader into her world and keeps them entertained throughout the whole book. I for one cannot wait to see just what comes next.”

Rated: 4.5 Tombstones by Bitten By Books!

Ride the Lightning by Lex Valentine was emotional, sensual, and surprisingly sweet. Both Vahid and Emily made cameos in the other Tales of the Darkworld books, and bits and pieces of their story were uncovered, but those splashes were nothing compared to the ocean of pain they had to swim through to gain their happily-ever-after.”

Rated: 4 Hearts by Love Romances and More

With a sweep of her pen, this author captures her characters inner soul completely amid the pages of RIDE THE LIGHTNING and gives the reader a glimpse into their hearts as well. With a strong secondary cast of characters, new and old, RIDE THE LIGHTNING is a pure gem to read complete with some really hot scenes to keep the winter cold away.”
