Told from Andrew Madigan's POV, Too Like Lightening is a story of redemption, second chances and summer love...
Wonderful characters and age gap love This is the first book by this author that I have read and I am glad I had the opportunity to get it. I loved the wonderful characters and the steamy scene between the two MC's. It's got some angst, but in the end it's a great HEA. I can't wait to see what comes next from this author.
Too Like Lightening was an unusual mix of hesitation, interest and intention... told only from Andrew's POV, you get a glimpse into a love story that develops over the course of a summer, but moves as organically as Coley's ideas for natural gardening... Using both literature and environmental metaphors, Travis Beaudoin gives the reader extra insights into both the characters and their relationships.
It is a well crafted, sweet and steamy romance, although I wish I had more of Coley's POV in some places...

"But now, each afternoon the world made a spectacle of itself. Black skies threw white lightning. Thunder crashed and rolled and cracked. Wind shook the trees like it was angry at them. Raindrops like bullets battered the roof. That space I’d built between the world and me fell away. When the rain came, I’d sit on the back porch of my borrowed home and watch the world have a tantrum. It was the only time I didn’t feel alone." - Andrew
This book is for all who enjoy a book that is so well written and uses languages in a way that it feels like a painting. No word is out of place, the use of quotes, the flow and tone are just amazing. I was surprised more hours had passed then I suspected when I finished this book.
This is an age gap romance that seems to start out as a summer fling, but it becomes so much more almost unbeknownst to both Andrew and Corey. They have to make decisions when the outside world comes calling into their little slice of heaven.
The author was new to me and I am sure to check out more of his work.
