Publisher's Summary

Never stop running. No matter how often life trips you up or how many times your enemies knock you down, just get up and keep on moving until you find where you belong.
Kelly Phillips has been out and proud since he was a young teenager, and thanks to the gay youth group he frequents, he's never been short on friends or lovers. But when you have almost everything, it's hard not to focus on what's just out of reach: a best friend who would be Mr. Right if he wasn't already Mr. Straight. Or that handsome athlete at school who would be easier to wrangle if not for his angel wings. And then there's the guy who might be a perfect fit, maybe even a soul mate...if only he wasn't convinced he didn't need anyone. Kelly has always been good at running. Now he must learn to chase, which will test not only his endurance but the durability of his heart as well.
Something Like Lightning is a new beginning in the Something Like... saga, shifting the focus to a different set of characters while also revisiting a familiar face or two.
The Something Like... series:

Something Like Summer
Something Like Winter
Something Like Autumn
Something Like Spring
Something Like Lightning

Forget what you thought about Kelly

This was one of those books that I wasn't sure I would like, as I didn't really like Kelly in Something Like Spring. I should have had more faith in Jay Bell. He really is a magnificent writer and I need to learn never to make any assumptions about his characters. This is Kelly's story and no matter what you thought of him in Spring, you will love his story. In a word, his spirit is amazing. He does not always express it correctly, but his heart is wonderful. In typical Jay Bell fashion, he makes you root for Kelly and William until his tears them apart so Kelly can have his real true love. What is great is he does it in such a believable, human fashion. I have to say, my view towards William also changed and not in a good way. Something I am sure Jay Bell will whack me over the head with when he tells Williams story.

Once again Kevin R Free hits it out of the park with his performance of these characters. He is really one of the best narrators out there and I hope he is always the voice for Jay Bell's stories. This is a must listen for fans of the series, but be warned, there is a modified HEA. The ending is the beginning of Thunder.

Getting to know 2 formerly "minor" characters

This is a great addition to the Something Like series that let's us get to know 2 (really 4) characters from the past even better. I love how connected and intertwined all the characters are with each other, Jay does such an amazing job of giving long time fans better insight into characters we may not have liked so much from past books and allows us to walk in their shoes for a while. In the end you can't help loving and understanding each and every character! Amazing!
