Blog Tour: Wait - A.L Jackson.

  Wait Release Banner   


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.    


From the little glimpses I had gotten of Austin’s story, I knew that when A.L. Jackson got around to writing his book it would be an emotional one.  I thought I was prepared.  I wasn’t.  The journey that I was taken on was completely unexpected.  Wait is another breathtaking, lyrical story about a broken boy falling for a broken girl and finding healing in each other.  It will burrow into your heart and lodge itself in.

In order to break free of his big brother’s overbearing protectiveness; Austin Stone left home and hasn’t looked back.  His past holds him captive, making him feel unworthy.  He has made a lot of mistakes in his life.  Large ones, small ones and they’ve cut him deep.  Four years later, he could now be mistaken for his older brother’s twin but he still doesn’t feel like he can go home.  Austin wanders the coast, playing his guitar in small venues.  Edie Evans has her own secrets to keep.  And she once entrusted them to Austin but he betrayed her.  But walking into a bar one night, their presents collide with their past and they are face to face for the first time in years.

This book draws you in, the twists and turns keep you guessing and wondering what’s going to happen next.  There’s mystery, drama, and heartache.  Be prepared for a rollercoaster of feels.  You’ll feel them all.  It’s like a summer storm, absolutely breathtakingly beautiful to watch but devastating all the same.  If you love rockstar romances, second chance romances, friends to lover romances—okay...if you just like romance novels, read this.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J

Oh AL Jackson, how you ruin me. Wait has been something all have been WAITING for. This book has been the talk of the summer and long overdue. If you have read any of AL’s other books then you know. YOU KNOW. A author/ god is among us.

Austin Stone is a lyrical genius but so is his brother. After a past riddled with secrets, devastation, and regret Austin decides to leave and find himself along the coast. He plays small venues and never stays in one place for long. However, his current town has kept him in its grasp and he could figure out why. That is until he is playing at The Lighthouse and he hears the cries of a broken girl. Whenever he looks up the girl from his past, Edie Evans, is just rocked to the core almost as much as he is by seeing here. Edie has a past of her own and it centers around Austin. Austin and all of his lies and heartbreak. To mend her heart and find her soul Edie ran from the fateful night when Austin broke her. Now, he will do anything to fix what he did and have her back in his arms.

If you are looking for a book that will leave you speechless, sad, happy, confused, and downright hungry for more then look no further. I can guarantee you will love Wait. It’s perfection on paper. Prove me wrong. One click. Read. Enjoy. You’ll thank me later. - Daddy L



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