Publisher's Summary

From a NYT and USA Today best-selling 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.
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.

Beautiful story. You need the "backstory" first, everything falls into place.

A.L. Jackson is so good at combining Love, Heartbreak, Mistakes, and Resolution. This book gives you all of that. But, you need (in my opinion), to know the history of the band "Sunder" in order for this story to flow and fall into place. I've listened to all of the books that came before this one. I loved this!

Edie has secrets that cause her to pull away from her family and the "boy" she loves... Austin.

Austin has demons, he is stuck in the mire of a heartbreaking tragedy which causes him to pull away from everything he knows and loves. Edie and Austin are brought back together, as adults, and struggle to come to terms with their past.

I'm being vague because I don't want to give the story away. I was moved to tears a couple of times... this isn't your run of the mill love story, and again, I think it's important to know the history of the band Sunder in order for this book to make sense.

The narrators are perfect. Two of my favorite narrators and they do a fantastic job! I always look for more books read by either Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt. Stellar performances!

I'm surprised by the negative reviews... possibly those reviews are from people who don't know the back stories of some important characters that are in this story.

I'm very happy with my purchase and will look forward to more books by A.L. Jackson. Love Live Loved this book!

I know I need to find words to describe this listen but words like fantastic, brilliant, well written, hypnotic, heartbreakingly beautiful and riveting just aren't enough and won't begin to cover the emotional journey that Edie and Austin travelled before they got their wonderful HEA ending.

The story is told in the present but also their broken pasts are slowly unearthed with thought provoking Chapters revealing what haunts Edie and Austin and what drama tore these two devoted friends apart for 4 long and lonely years. It must have been Fate that put them in the same place at the same time... but it would be up to them to seek forgiveness, to forgive, to trust and to let love back into their lives. However, the past, together with the shocking secrets that had been so tightly kept, were going to resurface again, be revealed and someone was going to make the same devastating mistake all over again.

A.L. Jackson has such a way with words that her Chapters are deep, emotional, poetic, heartfelt, raw, painful, beautiful, haunting and very moving works of art. I've loved this series so far... but this fourth book took my breath away because Edie and Austin's stories were so well described, tragic, intense, sweet and moving. My heart broke time and time again for these two damaged soul mates as they struggled to find themselves from the wreckage of their lives... and to help each other heal and become whole again.

Worth a credit? A story where I craved every Chapter and every word, dual POV's and some great narration which brought this book, and it's characters, to life and made this, for me, a 10 star listen.... so, YES very creditworthy. If you're a romance lover then let A.L. Jackson sweep you off your feet with this moving and very powerful story of broken characters, broken promises, broken hearts, love.... and the beauty of second chances.
