From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author A.L. Jackson comes the next sexy, gripping Bleeding Stars stand-alone novel...
I'm Ash Evans.
The life of the party.
Hot. Rich. Charismatic.
A tattooed rock star with the world at my feet.
I burn through women faster than the strike of a match.
I've embraced my lifestyle and live it to the fullest.
Until the day my lifestyle caught up to me.
Willow Langston found me at my lowest.
Facedown in a puddle of my own blood.
I owe her my life and I have three months to repay that debt.
What I never should have done was touch her. Kiss her. Take her to my bed.
Love wasn't supposed to be a part of the equation.
I gave up that nasty complication a long damned time ago.
Now I want her more than my next breath.
But she doesn't know what I know.
Do I leave to protect her? Or can I face my demons and ask her to Stay?

I truly love this series !! Fabulous writing plus outstanding narrator performances put it above most others. The story of Ash was heartbreaking, uplifting, emotional and gripping... he found his soulmate though he was convinced he didn't deserve her. 5stars again 😀
I have listened to the whole series and have loved the characters the story line is good if a little predictable but still has some good teistz in it to keo you wanting to know how it ends.
I liked getting to know Ash as he is portrayed as coming across very differently in the other books as this book was all about gwtting to knoq the real Him it waa really good to see him in a different light.
this book is easy listening but has you wanting to kow how it is going to end . just when you think it cant get any worse for ash and willow the world tilts and another twist comes in their pligjt .good listen .
well delibered i really like Andi Arnt And Zachary Webber as narrators they bring the charavters to life brilliantly. cant waitvto read the next installment.
"They Just Keep Getting Better and Better"
Every time I think this series has peaked the next book comes out. If it's possible I think each book gets better than the last book in the series. I'm so hooked. Ash and Willow give all the feels -- makes you just want to take your heart out and give it to them. I like that events from the group's past are revisited from Ash's point of view and we get insight in to more of the group's past and how it affects their group dynamics presently. Kudos to A.L. Jackson for keeping the entire Sunder family engaged in each book. I'm really looking forward to Zach's story so we can find out the how's and why's of his celibacy.
Fabulous job narrating by Andi and Zachary expressing the passions and emotions of Ash and Willow to the point that you feel as if you're there experiencing all the feels too.
Absolutely worth a credit or whatever price you paid. This author with these narrators are a fantabulous buy. I have listened to over 1100 audio books and it's rare that I give 5 stars across the board but this is one of my favorite authors and favorite series with two of my favorite narrators. This is win, win, win all around!
"Outstanding on Every Level"
A.L. Jackson you were born to do this, I became a "audio fangirl" in early 2015 but WOAH I think each book just tugs my heart strings more and more each time... I cried several times on this one I can't wait for the next one (I assume will be for Lyric's love story).... BRAVO again!!! 👏🏾😘
"Shocking Plot Twists With Ending I Won't Forget!!"
I'lll be honest, I almost didn't finish this one. For me it had a slow beginning, and I actually started, and stopped this audio several times....... but OH, BOY, OH BOY, OH BOY, I'm sooooo glad I stuck it out! The plot twists, secrets, and ending caught me by surprise....... I'm still a little shell shocked! I loooove stories with plot twists, whether they are heart-warming, gut-wrenching, or shocking, and Stay definitely delivered them all!
Kudos to the Andi, and Zachary! They delivered an outstanding performance, and I could feel all the emotions!
Once the story started moving, I loved it, and agree with all the positive reviews. Dang..... I feel I've been cheating myself....NOW I'm gonna have to listen to the other audios in the series to see if their plots are just as shocking! Credit or sale, I don't think you could go wrong with either. 4.5 Stars.
"A MOVING MASTERPIECE BY A TRULY GIFTED AUTHOR"
A.L.Jackson has pulled out all the stops with this incredible, unforgettable and emotional love story between two damaged people who have both had their hearts broken in the past.. but in very different ways. Ms. Jackson uses words like an Artist uses paints.. and slowly, with each masterful stroke and each colorful blend, a beautiful yet tragic picture is eventually revealed.
Willow's ex really did a number on her and she's still reeling from all his manipulative, deceitful and hurtful lies.. Willow was so close to getting her heart's desire of love, a family of her own and the HEA she's dreamt of since she was a young girl. She's lost everyone once dear to her - all she's got is her business and a box full of broken promises.. but when she saves a stranger outside her Shop whose close to death she'll forever alter the course of her life.. but it won't all be good.
Ash is Sunder's happy, charismatic, easy-going manwhore and he likes it that way.. no strings, no promises and no emotional ties.. which all goes to hide his very emotional demons. But one day things go terribly wrong and Ash ends up fighting for his life.. but a beautiful brown eyed angel saves him and now he wants nothing more than to repay her in some way. However, Ash isn't prepared for the instant chemistry, attraction and strong pull he feels when he seeks his saviour out.. or the emotions she makes him feel as their relationship slowly changes from friends to lovers. They both went into the relationship knowing there was an end date - but Holy wow they weren't expecting such a powerful connection, such deep deep feelings to grow, such excruciating heartache.. and such a painful twist of Fate.
This has got to be the best story in the Bleeding Stars series so far - Ms. Jackson has written something spectacular, something riveting, something unforgettable.. and something that pulled out so so many feels. From anxious anticipation as the characters grew close, through their breathtaking sexual relationship that should've fizzled, to the debilitating heartbreaking history that made Ash erect some very high walls, then came the tears and fears of the gut-wrenching twist - ending with the beautiful HEA that they both truly deserved. Great characters, character growth, awesome dual POV storyline, sex, romance, a sexy drool-worthy damaged hero and two wonderful narrators who breathed air into this vivid detailed story and brought it all to life.
Worth a credit? YES, it was far more than I'd ever ever hoped for.. and this is why A.L. Jackson is an auto-download Author for me.
I loved reading this book in print, but I am floored by how amazing it is told by Andi and Zachary. They brought these 2 beautifully broken characters to life and made me fall in love with the story all over again.
"5 stars isn't enough stars. "
this my favorite story in the series. touched my heart and filled my soul full
"Love it! Great Story!!"
The story line, from beginning to end. Too bad the end was cut short.
Willow - for her loving heart and her wisdom.
Oh my gosh - YES!! I love them both, every time is see their names to a book, I know I must buy it!
Zachary voice is so sexy, perfect narrator for Ash.
Andi - is always good, especially for Willow.
There was two scenes, when Willow's mom passes and Ash finally tells his story.
"Loved the story, loved the narration"
