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.

Review by: Tatia 

This is the kind of series that I love. Where it starts off amazing and with every book that is added they get better and better. You don't think it's possible, but somehow Ms. Jackson continues to completely blow me away. Wait is just another example of how phenomenal her writing is.

Austin and Edie both have their own demons that they have faced, each with their own set of hurdles they've had to endure. These are battles they fight daily. No one has been able to give them any reprieve from the nightmares, not until they find each other. There is this imaginary tether that holds them together. The pull they feel is tangible. Each night they're chasing away each other's demons just by being with each other. It's not about sex, but strengthening each other, having someone to share their fears with, someone to hold them when it all becomes too much. But one mistake changes it all and sends Edie running. It's years before they cross paths again. This time, Austin won't have her running away from him.

All of the emotions I experienced while reading mirrored that of the scene in the book. I could feel elated about a reunion that I could see the great possibilities in, fear when the past catapults into the present, and sadness when the horrors they've experienced haunt them each night. The strength they project into each other was beautiful, how just a hand to hold gave them everything they needed to battle it. A.L. Jackson creates the best heroes and heroines. While at times they can seem weak, they are anything but. They fight everyday just to continue living. I love when they find that one thing, that one person who lifts them up and makes it that much easier. When they realize that they're worth fighting for, when the battles aren't controlling their lives, that's the point that I really fall in love with them. From that point on, they keep going forward, moving up, and you'll see a continuous smile on my face. It's all here in Wait. Everything that makes a fabulous story is brought out, and I could not have loved it more. I say every new book in this series is my favorite because they get that much better with each one.

Review by: Kim 

The world of Sunder continues in this tear your heart to shreds novel.
A.L. Jackson writes with such depth and emotion that its impossible not to get completely immersed in the story.
Reading Wait is like working a jig-saw puzzle. Finding clues that fit together to make the story come together into a satisfying end.
Edie and Austin almost broke me. How 2 such broken people manage to make each other whole just twisted my heart.
This author is amazing. And I'm not giving anything away so if you love Sunder as much as I do then this book is a must read for you.

Review by: Erin 

This story was exciting and addictive. I loved the storyline. The characters were very well developed and intriguing. I love how the author gives you just enough information to keep you hooked, but never too much at a time. I loved all the twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. Austin and Edie are incredible. They have such a deep and intense connection. They have something that only true soul mates can hope to have. Their chemistry is deep and soulful. Not a lot of wham bam thank you ma’am. I have been in love with this series from the first chapter of the first book and already looking forward to more!

 “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. Shit. 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. Shit. 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. Alive. She pressed deeper into the wall as if it might support her weakened knees. Head rocked back. Thighs squeezing together. Motherfuck. My hand shot to the shower wall to steady myself. “Warning you, Edie, you need to get out of here. Right now.”
