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.

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.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Emotionally Packed, Gripping and Poetic!

Wow! A.L. Jackson skillfully writes a beautiful story about two damaged souls. The plot was well thought out and written, and keeps the listener in suspense, while the scenes alternate between the present and past. It's been years since Edie and Austin have seen each other. They both ran from their past for different reasons. Their reunion is rocky, but as they start to rekindle the flame, we are taken back to their past through a series of flashbacks. When their darkest moments are revealed, it will break your heart, but by the end, their love will piece it back together.

Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber's performance was OUTSTANDING! They did a great job on all the different characters, and emotions.

Between the beautiful poetic heart breaking romance, and flawless narration, there's no mystery why this audio is currently a best seller on Audible. Well worth a credit, but I took advantage of my KU and added whispersync.
