Bleeding Stars Book Five; Standalone
From NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson comes the next sexy, gripping Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel…
I’m Ash Evans.
The life of the party.
Hot. Rich. Charismatic.
A tattooed rock star with the world at my feet.
I burn through women faster than the strike of a match.
I’ve embraced my lifestyle and live it to the fullest.
Until the day my lifestyle caught up to me.
Willow Langston found me at my lowest.
Facedown in a puddle of my own blood.
I owe her my life and I have three months to repay that debt.
What I never should have done was touch her. Kiss her. Take her to my bed.
Love wasn’t supposed to be a part of the equation.
I gave up that nasty complication a long damned time ago.
Now I want her more than my next breath.
But she doesn’t know what I know.
Do I leave to protect her? Or can I face my demons and ask her to Stay?
With seductive and poetic writing, Jackson delivers an explosive love story with STAY. It’s easy to imagine that carefree and distant Ash would bring us a complicated romance, but I wasn’t expecting such a tumultuous journey or to be affected as deeply as I was by the sheer force of their connection. Jackson has a subtle way of writing that really evokes reaction and feeling, and it was especially present in her words here.
Ash and Willow were provocative and enticing, pulling me into them from the first page and keeping me with them until the very last. It was the kind of pull that made my chest ache with longing and the slow, sweet burn of a connection begging to be explored, but forcibly denied. That resistance kept the tension at a constant fever pitch, leaving me on the precipice of something spectacular…and brutally beautiful.
STAY is a long fought for journey of two souls finding solace in one another. It’s beautifully told with a beguiling voice that lures you under its spell. It’s the favorite of my series thus far, and it will continue to stick with me. The desperate pull of Ash and Willow is an addictive, sexy thing.
Her lips parted, and her expression churned in confusion.
Lust. Need. Want. Fear.
All of them played out across her delicate features.
I shouldn’t have. I knew I shouldn’t. But there was nothing I could do to stop myself.
Always, always in the moment.
That was me.
I pressed her harder against the wall, my straining cock eager against her jean-clad pussy.
Desperate for friction.
Anxious for relief.
Everything sparked, and I could have sworn the room spun, the ground shifting below our feet.
She gasped out in surprise, eyes so damned wide. Her nails pricked where they dug into the flesh of my shoulders.
What was this girl doing to me?
I leaned down, my mouth close to her ear. My voice came on a rough murmur. “Do you want me?”
Where Lightning Strikes and Wait are standalones; A Stone in the Sea and Drowning to Breathe are a continuing story and must be read in order.
