FOUR STARS ARC Generously Provided by AuthorThat 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 believeThis 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 A.L 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 book Austin 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 After starting this series with A Stone in the Sea, I couldn t wait to get Austin s story most The lost, troubled, beautiful boy But he ain t no boy any though in this story This story is full of sadness, pasts full of horrific events, heartbreaking circumstances It s a story of two lost souls, about a love so strong it can overcome and heal anything and anyone Austin has lived with losing his other half of his soul, his twin

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 timeI 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 him.Before Austin left L.A 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 L.A., 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 day.This 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.

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 friendship relationship 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
