Synopsis: Colby Evans can leap from one country to the next in a heartbeat. She can see every sunset in every time zone in the same day. She can travel across the world in a flash. She defies gravity and physics with every breath she takes. She’s tested her abilities and found them limitless.
She is the lightning. She is Lucent. And nothing can stop her.
Except him.
Theodore Ramsey isn’t supposed to be able to flash like Colby. The power of travel is passed on from mother to daughter in their people. Except once in every hundred generations.
Theo is the one.
He can flash like Colby. And it makes him a target to their enemies and to himself. His abilities change everything he knows about life and throws his future into an uncertain tangent. In fact, the only thing certain in his life is the love he feels for Colby.
Their love defies time and space and has been the only constant thing in their lives since childhood. But even their infallible love will be stretched to its limits.
She will risk her life to protect him. But he will risk everything to protect them all.

I received this book for free from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This will not affect my decision in any way.

Cover: The cover just draws you in. You have some lightning, a hot guy, what could be better? I love how the colors work together and how the cover is eye-catching. I would definitely pick it up off of a shelf. I want it on my shelf. The only aspect that I’m not a big fan of is the fonts. 

Characters: The characters have such spunk and are all personalities. The women are are strong-headed and rebellious. The men are hot. Everyone seems to have it together…

Colby. Wow. She’s such a strong lead. She has her own thoughts and no manners whatsoever. I loved her. She was funny to watch and see how she responds to certain situations. She just made the book so much better because you could never be certain how she would respond.

Theo knows how to put up with Colby. He understands Colby and knows how to deal with her. He’s sweet and a gentleman. He’s an all-around great guy. I feel sympathy for him and the choices he has to make.

Plot: Lightning people? That rings a bell. Lightning Kissed reminds me a lot of the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout though the lightning peeps were about the only similarities. When I started reading, I was excited since I was such a fan of the Lux series and I thought Lightning Kissed would be somewhat similar. Felix could not have taken this book in a more different direction. It may be the same type of power, but the plot was totally different.

I was shocked at how much history this book had. Felix really created a new fictional world with this novel. She had everything figured out about how the Lucent had gotten their powers, to the rules she had to follow, to how they dealt with the government. It was very thought out and well-written.

Ending: OMG! I loved/hated the plot twist. I’m glad that there’s another alternative because I love Colby and Theo together, but I don’t think this way is any better. I have a bad feeling about it, and I want to read more. The plot twist was amazing.

Overall: Lightning Kissed was a thrilling page-turner that had me cheesing of the adorableness of Colby and Theo. I ship them so hard! I need more of their awesome adventure, and I really hope everything turns out for them. Felix is a great author! I love her imagination and creativity. I need to read more books by her, and I recommend you give Lightning Kissed a try.
