Review: Stand - A.L. Jackson


From NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson comes the next seductive, unforgettable Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel…

Zachary Kennedy has never been known as a fighter, but he’ll never regret fighting for her…

I’m Zee Kennedy.
Quiet. Reserved. Predictable.
When my brother died, everyone thought I was just the good guy who stepped up to take his place in the band.

No one knew what I was hiding. The one thing I’ve been fighting for.

For seven years, I’ve never lost focus.

Not until one chance encounter with Alexis Kensington.

Now she’s become my greatest temptation.
I knew better than to touch her, but now that I’ve had a taste, I can’t get enough.
Her kiss becomes my air. Her body my salvation.

She needed a savior and somehow she became mine.

Taking her was a betrayal. But keeping her means risking everything.
One look at Alexis Kensington, and I know she’s worth the fight.

Will my past continue to keep me down or will I finally find the strength to pull myself up and Stand...

Signed Paperbacks:


I didn’t think that A.L. Jackson was going to be able to top Austin’s book when it came to heartache and angst.  But holy shit, Zee Kennedy’s story shattered my heart into millions of little pieces.  This book wrecked me, completely wrecked me.  I wanted to curl up into a little ball and hide under my covers.  But alas life goes on and I had to pull up my big girl panties.  Thankfully, Jackson put my shattered pieces back together.

Zachary “Zee” Kennedy is broken, living two lives, and as loyal as they come.  Stepping into his brother’s shoes, he joined the Sunder family but never fully healed.  Alexis is na├»ve, pure, and golden.  She’s one of those rare people that the light just shines out of her.  And when their paths cross, fate takes over.  Their connection was spectacular.  And their chemistry…I felt like I needed a cold shower.  Jackson is a master storyteller and I love her characters.  They are so multi-layered and complex that they feel incredibly real and genuine.  I think that’s why her books are so impactful.  Even though you’re reading about a rockstar, they could be any Joe or Jane that you pass on the street.

This book is definitely high angst.  It should come with a tissue warning.  I seriously looked like a mess after reading it.  Puffy eyes, red face, and snotty nose.  Lovely picture I’m painting eh?  But oh my goodness, it is all worth it.  This book is stunning.  And I loved the glimpses we saw of the other Sunder boys.  But I have to say, out of the entire Bleeding Stars novels, this has to be my favorite.  Zee stole my heart and I doubt he’ll ever give it back.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J
