RELEASE REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY: Kiss the Stars by A.L. Jackson


A Falling Stars STAND-ALONE NOVEL from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author, A.L. Jackson . . .

A single mother.

An up-and-coming drummer with a sordid past.

Their paths never should have crossed.

But when a senseless crime rocks Mia West’s entire world, she agrees to spend the summer hiding out at her rock-star brother’s mansion in Savannah until the storm blows over.

What she never expected was the gorgeous, brooding drummer living in the guest house.

His darkness a lure.

His gaze a trap.

She knows better than to go after what will hurt her most.

Leif Godwin has two focuses in his life: his band, Carolina George, and seeking retribution for what was stolen from him.

Mia was never supposed to be a part of the equation.

Her eyes an appeal.

Her body a temptation.

Touching her is nothing but a sin.

But will loving her destroy them all . . .

My Review

I’m a huge fan of A.L. Jackson’s Bleeding Stars series; they’re some of my favorite Rock Star Romances, so the fact that Jackson returns to this setting in her new release, Kiss the Stars, felt like coming home again, catching up with old friends and making new ones along the way.

What I always find interesting about Jackson’s heroes and heroines are how the pairings, at first glance, don’t seem to make sense, partially due to the fact that they appear to come from two very different situations and perspectives and also because of the amount of work that they are putting in to heal themselves from a painful past of heartbreak and sorrow, which means that adding another person to the mix seems more detrimental than helpful. But as the characters’ personalities evolve and the time spent together helps to delve deeper into who they are and what they want and even need, it’s at that point when it becomes abundantly clear just how perfectly imperfect their connection is and how essential they become for one another’s growth and stability.

Mia West and Leif Godwin couldn’t be more different and their outlooks on life in general puts them on seemingly opposite ends of the spectrum. But Mia doesn’t give up easily and once she acknowledges the connection she feels to Leif, she does what she needs to in order to prove that he’s worthy of her regardless of his persistent feelings to the contrary. There’s a lot to sort through and work to be done for these two to make something long lasting, but Mia’s refusal to give up and Leif’s capitulation once he realizes just how deeply he feels for her and how full his life is with her in it, even the biggest obstacles and fears won’t prevent them from kissing the stars.

The best part about heading back to a much loved setting is that old characters stop by and readers get to catch up with everything that’s been happening in their lives since we left them to ride off into the sunset.

What I appreciate the most about A.L. Jackson’s characters and the way she crafts them is that they’re flawed and imperfect in ways that readers can relate to and while they may have endured painful pasts and they may still be fighting those demons, there’s always hope for redemption…hope for putting their respective pasts behind them and realizing that they are worthy of all the wonderful things that life offers.

And that’s what emotional romances do…they provide an opportunity for love, even when those involved don’t feel like they deserve it.
