Review: Wait by AL Jackson

Wait (Bleeding Stars, #4)Wait by A.L. Jackson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary: 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.

Watching Austin leave was hard. Having fallen in love with this dysfunctional family has been a blessing, and while it was obvious that Austin had demons to sort it was still hard. Finding him living it up on his own, and what a shocker to find that he is doing it while making music. Not just making music, but singing for himself. This was the first chance to really see who Austin is, and I was not disappointed. This was the first story that has characters with a past intertwined as deeply. While Shea and Baz were unknowingly starring in the same story; Austin and Evie were in love and just children. Finding the darkness surrounding them both was hard seeming to almost suck all the air out of the room, but knowing that the love between them was so deep that together might be the only way to come out. This was the sweetest of the romances I have felt so far in this series. Although, while all of the darkness of these stories have been from past events this was the first time watching the darkness unfold in the story. Ash had no idea about this past makes it new darkness for him, and it broke my heart to see this one unfolding.
