Wait Release Banner

From NYT & USA Today bestselling author comes a new Bleeding Stars stand-alone novel…

synopsisShe is his strength and he is her weakness. And this time he won’t let her go.

Edie Evans is gorgeous.



She’s also the definition of off-limits.

But that didn’t stop me from sneaking into her room to comfort her at night.

But guys like me? We destroy everything, so it should have been no surprise when I destroyed us, too.

The night I sent her running, I thought I’d never see her again.

Until I saw her standing like a vision in the crowd.


Austin Stone is dangerous.



He broke my heart and I refused to give him the chance to do it again.

It’s been years since I’ve seen him, and now I can’t do anything but stare at the gorgeous, tattooed man playing onstage. I should run. I know I should. But like a fool, I run straight back to him.

Our desire is overpowering.
Our need unrelenting.

She is my hope.
He is my weakness.

We should have known a passion this intense would burn us right into the ground.

Shera 5

Wait is the newest Bleeding Stars novel from A.L. Jackson.  I’ve loved all the Bleeding Stars characters, but Edie and Austin’s story buried itself deep within my heart and it will be one I never forget!  Wait is an intense, intriguing, emotional, intoxicating beautiful story of deep true love.  This was more than a five star read for me.  This was an “I’ll never forget a single word I read” type of read.  An epic unforgettable journey!

Austin came in like a hurricane and stole my heart.  I didn’t think it was possible for anyone to steal my love for Baz, but it happened.  Edie and Austin have known each other since they were young, brought together by their brothers in the band “Sunder”.   Edie is Ash’s younger sister and Austin is Sebastian “Baz”, the lead singer of Sunder’s brother.  Austin has been buried with guilt his entire life from a tragedy years ago. He never felt worthy enough and always felt that he should continue to suffer from what he feels like he stole.    Edie was a sweet girl that had her young life shredded one fateful night.  These two were each other’s light.   They held the found each other in the darkness, held the others hand, their heart, their nightmares.  When they were together everything didn’t hurt so bad.  But when Edie ran, so did Austin.  When fate brings them back together in the same town after 4 years, their pasts come with them both.  The question is will it destroy them or bring them back together?

I can’t say enough good things about this entire series.  I have fallen in love with each and every single character and when I see a new book is being released I literally get giddy!  I absolutely adore each and every guy in the band as well as their loved ones.  I love when they pop up in new books, because then I relive their story in my mind while reading a new one.  While Wait is a standalone this is one series that you will want to read every single book because each is equally brilliant.

A.L. Jackson has become an automatic one click author for me.  Each time I pick up one of her books I usually read until I literally can’t anymore.  I get sucked into her world, her words, deep into the character’s lives. She has that type of writing ability to do that, each and every single time!  I devoured this book! I can’t wait STAY, Ash’s book!  5++ Stars for Wait!




“Shit,” I hissed, bracing myself against the spray of the icy shards pelting from the shower head.

I sucked in a breath, released it between clenched teeth, and forced myself fully under it.

Head dropped and chest heaving as rivers of ice-cold water slicked down my shoulders and back.

But it did nothing to lessen the need. Gave me no sanity or pacification.

Because all I could think about was the girl on the other side of the door.

My girl.

In my bed.

Wearing just her panties and my shirt.

An angel I wanted to dirty.

I always had.

Love was messy like that.

All of my restraint scattered. I gripped my cock. Squeezed the base. My mouth dropped open at the pressure of my hand against my rigid length.

A fool thinking it might be enough.


God, I was a bastard, but there was nothing I could do before I was giving in, leaning forward and bracketing my forearm above my head to hold my weight.

Water pounded down on my head and back while I pounded my fist against my dick.

Trying to keep silent when all I wanted was to moan, teeth digging into my bottom lip as I pictured the girl spread out for me.

My breaths were coming short.

Panted and hard.

I gave into imagining the sounds she would make when I finally got to bury myself in her body.

A soft, soft gasp.

I slowed, trying to convince myself that throaty sound was all in my mind.

Just another part of this fantasy.

Until I heard the small thump against the wall.


I mashed my eyes closed, like it might hide me.

Conceal the depravity of my actions after I’d just been comforting her hours before.

Heart thrashing, I turned and moved far enough to peek out the small section where the fabric shower curtain hadn’t been drawn fully closed.

It was just a little sliver that left me exposed.

But it was enough. When I peered out, I was looking right at my girl pressed up against the wall.

She stared right back at me.

And I wanted to be horrified, my mind scrambling to conjure every weak apology I could summon. Ready to fucking grovel to keep her from turning and running once again.

Because that’s exactly what I expected her to do.

But her expression…her expression clutched me in the center of the chest and sent what little brain function I had left stampeding south.

Red, lush lips were parted, her hand pressed to her hollow of her throat, pupils dilated so big that her hooded, cerulean eyes appeared black. Needy breaths were coming at me from that sweet mouth like a goddamned freight train.

Desire swelled in the confines of the too-tight room.


She pressed deeper into the wall as if it might support her weakened knees. Head rocked back. Thighs squeezing together.


My hand shot to the shower wall to steady myself. “Warning you, Edie, you need to get out of here. Right now.”
