Wait [Reading] ➾ Wait By A.L. Jackson – Thomashillier.co.uk From NYT USA Today bestselling author comes a new Bleeding Stars stand alone novel She is his strength and he is her weakness And this time he won’t let her go Edie Evans is gorgeous Sexy Kind She From NYT USA Today bestselling author comes a new Bleeding Stars stand alone novel She is his strength and he is her weakness And this time he won’t let her go Edie Evans is gorgeous Sexy Kind 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 Alluring Tempting 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.

    “The truth is I gave my heart away a long time ago My whole heart And I never really got it back” Sweet Home AlabamaHave you ever read a story that has stolen your soul? Has a book broken your heart hitting it so hard that even after it’s mended its pieces are still stuck in the story? I gave my heart to Wait where it still remains long after I turned the last page I gave my soul to this story—as if I had a choice—for it to be sucked in like a song dragging me in pulling me under like a big wave Wait is the newest roller coaster of a rock star romance from AL Jackson’s Bleeding Stars series and oh did my heart bleed I devoured Wait in small doses to give my heart time to slow its beating my body time to slow its breathing and my brain time to process all of the feelings floating around in my head I did not want to put Wait down yet I had to calm my emotions from this story’s sensory stormBy just the second page of the book—the Prologue—my emotions engulfed me soaring like soldiers ready for battle This battle was one of feels; a fight I would not win A fight I did not want to win I knew this story starring Baz’s little brother Austin a broken boy who is now a broken man would break me I just did not know that Edie an eually broken girl and now a wounded woman would break me just as hard “I trusted this broken boy So I whispered my secret Offered it up to him To hold it Protect it Until the day he crushed it in his hands” Baz’s little brother Austin left four years ago at age 17 to treat the wounds that were embedded so deep into him making him bleed for the past that held him prisoner One where he still feels unworthy Tall muscular inked brown haired and grey green eyes Austin could be older brother Baz’s twin While not the lead singer for Sunder like Baz he could easily be Sunder's front man but plays in smaller venues on the West Coast “I felt that fragmented piece inside stretching out its fingers Searching for all that had been lost For that piece I could never reclaim” Damn if Baz’s little brother didn’t burrow right next to Baz in my heart Just one chapter in and my heart was breaking WAITI had to catch my breath as my lungs breathed in every wondrous and wielding word The words uickly became flames lighting me up A fire that burned me inside guiding me to its flames to the light that I needed to see Needed to feel when darkness tried to hijack my head and heart “His voicethat unforgettable voice that washed over me exactly the way it once had With comfort and joy and an aching hope I hadn’t seen him since the night this broken boy had crushed the fragile piece of myself I’d given to him Only Austin Stone was no longer a boy” The past collides with the present when beautiful blonde and aua eyed Edie Evans Ash’s little sister and Austin’s best friend and love of his life stumbles into the bar where he is playing one night after four years apart Secrets and lies destroyed them but each has always held the other’s heart “He’d been my safety My haven Until he dragged me right back into hell” Two chapters in and I broke as I bled for both the hero and the heroine Two broken souls who should be one WAITI had to catch my tears as I willed them not to fall Tears that teased the dam of waterworks waiting to burst from the words that clutched my soul extracting every emotion Beckoning me Binding me Becoming me “The girl was the only one who shed a light strong enough to pull me from the darkthat girl had given me air A reprieve from the unending storm” Austin is rough around the edges but light lingers through that dark exterior ready to burst and break free Edie is the angel who saves him from the dark Austin is the comfort in Edie’s raging storm Two broken souls who have been through hell find their way back to each other hoping for redemption A second chance One where their hearts will resume beating as one “Because I’d known it since the moment he’d crawled into my bed and whispered his ease Since the moment his spirit had sank into my soul” These broken beauties need to be together Austin and Edie’s pain is mine and only they can pick up each other’s shattered pieces “He was anchored to me so deeply I could feel him pulling at me from every angle We were magnets in opposition Trembling lures” I swooned so much My heart was hit so hard it spun right into my soul This broken boy and this broken girlthey broke me Again and again “This girl was the only thing I could seeDid she get it yet? Did she know she was always going to belong to me?” I could not help but smile a grin filled with hope as I was sucked into a wave of passion one of soulmates one of love as deep as the ocean “I should have known it would always be him” One third into this soul searing story and the tears trickled harder and harder as that dam of waterworks started to break Permanent tears became etched into my eyes I sighed Wait filled my lungs words filtering into my very core WAITI had to catch my heart that this story so forcefully claimed “He kissed meas if I was the center of his world And I knew without a doubt this boy was the eye of the storm The eye of my storm” Their chemistry is passion Their chemistry is pure Austin and Edie are perfect together dark mixed with light with a love that has never died Oh do I LOVE THEM so “She kissed me so deep I was sure this girl managed to touch my soul” An angel Edie is Austin’s light Like he needs her she needs her dark knight the one who has rescued her from hell as she has pulled him from the darkness Three fourths into the book and I was broken gutted unglued Wait pulled me into the dark; I was drowning in tears mixed with hope and heartbreak My soul screamed for mercy so lost it may never be found WAITI had to take another breath as this book buried itself so deep into my soul that it may never leave “How do you both break my heart and heal it at the same time?” “I don’t want to break you”“You broke me a long time ago” Wait oh did it break me This bookit’s EVERYTHING An intense intoxicating and incredible story of epic love Wait hit my heart hard and fast like lightning scorching my soul while my emotions poured like a rain storm I felt every word I read in Wait where I was left gasping for air drowning to breathe in a sea of emotions so deep that they stole every feel and every thought in a book that owned every piece of me I lived Wait I breathed Wait I was bound to Wait I became WaitAL Jackson writes from the heart and you can tell her heart is poured into every beautiful and brilliant word Her heartfelt writing hits my heart hard like a hurricane in every single story of this Bleeding Stars series EVERY WORD MATTERS Meaningful Mesmerizing Magnificent Everything AL Jackson pens is paint to a canvas so vivid and valuable Stories that steal your soul and stay with you forever Oh did Wait sing to my soul so very much in a beautifully broken story of epic love that was so worth the wait 5 but should be 10 beautiful broken brilliant and imperfectly perfect stars

    FOUR STARSARC Generously Provided by Author ”That first night you came to me I was so lost I was terrified to live Austin Terrified to feel But you broke through all those barriers You made me remember what it felt like to hope What it felt like to believe” This is the fourth installment of the Bleeding Stars series and each book can be read as a standalone The series revolves around the lives of each member of the band called SUNDER I have never read anything by AL Jackson but I’ve always wanted to and since WAIT is a second chance romance with a Rock Star I just had to give this one a try I really struggled with this book I had been reading it for three nights and honestly for the first 60% I was so disconnected and unhappy with the story I almost gave up I even contemplated skipping to the last two chapters and putting this behind me Something told me to proceed on and I am so grateful that I listened to that little voice in my head From the 60% mark and on WAIT became an entirely different book for me and my enjoyment of it increased ten times over I actually am looking forward to the next bookAustin Stone and Edie Evans are the younger siblings to a couple of the members of the rock band SUNDER They were romantically involved a few years back but when Austin accidently reveals a secret that he swore to keep for Edie she is so disillusioned that she ends up leaving town Edie was the only one who was able to bring light into Austin’s life and without her there is nothing to keep him from sliding back into the horrible depths of depression and guilt Early on we learn what Edie’s secret is and are only given bits and pieces of what is haunting Austin I was trying so hard to figure out what could possibly be tormenting him because for than half of the story it was a struggle for me to feel anything for Austin What I hypothesized barely even scratched the surface When the haunting and painful pasts of both Austin and Edie are finally revealed I started to connect with these characters and this story My heart opened up wide to the both of them and it was from that moment on that their actions made perfect sense to me I also fell in love with the author’s lyrical writing style It felt like the story was being told to us through a beautiful song WAIT is definitely a slow building story of love loss and second chances I promise that once the story picks up it will be virtually impossible to put down You will be rooting for these characters to finally have their HEA US

    45 StarsBeautiful Yet Tormented Austin Gets His Second Chance   Three years Austin Three years gone I gave my life to you and then I gave you the space you asked for Now I need you It's time I have been on a wonderful journey with the boys of the rock band Sunder and anxiously awaited reading Austin's story The boy who always wears a hoodie to try to hide his guilt his fears his misery He is the younger brother of the band's lead singer Sebastian Stone who was introduced in the first book of this series A Stone in the Sea Since the age of eight Austin was basically raised by Sebastian on the heels of a mistake of epic proportions for which Austin will never forgive himself and Sebastian tells the ultimate lie setting them both on a toxic road of destruction They experienced the chaos together the arrests the drug overdoses even the death of one of their best friends Three years ago Austin walked out on Sebastian desperately wanting to make it on his own to get clean to take full responsibility for his actions past and present Guilt and pain consume the emptiness of his soul and he is still not ready to go back home but Sebastian needs himBefore Austin left LA and his old life behind he met Edie Evans his everything his perfect fantasy Of course he knew he would do something to screw up their relationship at some point it is just what he does best 'Ruin' is his constant companion He was supposed to have protected her protected her secret because God knew he had enough secrets of his own One unforgivable evening unable to hold his rage in check Austin exposes Edie's secret So distraught over his betrayal Edie leaves LA never letting anyone know where she is After years of being apart Austin and Edie's lives have crossed paths once again but the deep line she drew in the sand after he betrayed her and crushed her heart is still evident still forbidding him to come anywhere near her But in all those years in all those cities since LA and through all the countless women Austin had in his bed he never forgot Edie never got over her never wanted anyone than he wanted her This is Austin's second chance to win back Edie's trust and love to make things right with Sebastian and to free himself from the guilt and grief of that fateful dayThis is told in dual POV style my personal favorite between Austin and Edie The storyline goes back and forth between the present and past which is very easy to follow and is compelling

    4 Stars “I wished upon every damned star in the sky for a second chance For something I could do to truly make it right when I’d done her so fucking wrong To be good enough for this girl who was so obviously created for me” “Wait” is the first book I have read by A L Jackson and I really enjoyed it “Wait” is book four in the “Bleeding Stars” series but can be read as a standalone I found it to be very well written and uite emotional It is a story about love loss and unimaginable tragedy This story at times literally broke my heart and I really felt for the two characters for all the pain they had to endure; losing the one person who is your whole world If you love emotional poignant second chance love stories then this is definitely a book for youEdie has a deep dark secret A secret which means everything to her which she has kept buried away until one day when she shared this secret with Austin Austin completely shattered and devastated Edie when his actions caused her secret to be exposed one she had tried to keep hidden for so long Fast forward four years and fate has brought them together again It’s not easy There are still a lot of hurt feelings and heartbreak They both will need to overcome all the damage that has been caused to give in to their intense love for each other For both of them they are the one; there will never be anyone else Edie and Austin both have heartbreaking stories that will utterly destroy you but they are such strong characters I felt I had no doubt they would have the ability to overcome anything“Wait” is certainly not a light hearted read but it is definitely worth the emotional rollercoaster to read something so profound intense and apprehensive with characters you will fall in love with I would most definitely recommend this story to anyone who loves a great second chance romance story

    I will admit for the first time in my reading relationship with AL Jackson I was a little apprehensive about the story I knew she planned to write because I knew who it was about I knew I didn't much care for the hero she had in mindHe wasn't someone who had been awful and needed to redeem himself I had just never cared for him and was than happy to never have to see him again Not that that would stop me from reading something of AL'sAnd then she threw him in my face by writing his storyAnd then he burrowed himself so deeply in my heart that I think I walked around like a teenage girl in love whenever I'd gotten done reading bits and pieces of the utterly swoon worthy broken man that was AustinI should've known that AL would never give us a hero who was less than incredible that Austin and Edie's story would be eually beautiful and devastating and that I would crave every word and every piece of their story even after the words had ended

    Get it here US UK Wait is a second chance romance featuring a hot musician and a broken woman Austin and Edie were the best of friends when they were younger and shared everything with each other But when Austin betrayed her trust Edie ran and the two remained separated for years Now Austin has also left home and a chance encounter brings these two together once again when they end up in the same town But Austin broke her trust once and Edie isn't sure she can give him that again I did enjoy this story and getting to know some about these characters I liked that Austin never lost his feelings for Edie and when he found her again he was ready to get her back Both characters had their reasons for not wanting to jump into a friendshiprelationship again but their connected was just so strong that they couldn't deny how the other made them better My three star rating mostly comes from how rushed I felt this story was There seemed to be a lot going on in both Edie and Austin's lives and it kind of took away from them as a couple I found them to be believable together it was just that I wanted of them

    Sadly I didn't like this one at all You know I love my second chances and Take This Regret is one of my favorites ever but not Wait First I started and stopped too many times for some reason I couldn't deal with the writing style even though I've read and loved some of this author's books before There was so much inner dialogue and some much purple prose And Edie I just couldn't connect with her one bit not that I didn't feel sorry for her hard life I just couldn't connect with her and her actions I also failed to see what made her so special to Austin I think she was just underdeveloped? There's zero indications of what even her life aspirations were I dunno this is probably a its me and not the book case but this one was a total disappointment
