Synopsis 

 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 six 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…

Tingles rushed, my words nothing more than pants as he kissed down through the valley of my breasts. “Maybe you’re just remembering who you are. Who you were always supposed to be.”
I felt as if I was so close to knowing him. This boy who’s beauty had been muted.
He groaned, half pained, half demand. “You almost make me feel like him.”  
Yanking me away from the railing, he hoisted me high. My legs were wrapped high around his chest as he carried me the rest of the way to the upper loft. To this magical place where twilight touched every corner, whispered its secrets and danced in its shadows.
He’d barely tossed me to the bed when he was over me, shoving up my dress and ripping it free, my fingers just as frantic as I tore his shirt over his head. I searched him, hands racing across his chest, feeling the wild beat of his conflicted heart, hearing the struggle that whimpered from his spirit.
He angled down and captured my mouth again. He kissed and bit and nipped as he held my face steady in the frame of his hands. Then he edged down, driving me wild with this murmurs of kisses at my jaw and ear and neck.
“Zachary…please.”
I writhed, dizziness rushing as I stared up at him towering over me.
His body was brimming with hard, cut muscle. Muscle that jumped and ticked and flexed, as if the desire thrumming in his veins stalked back and forth, a caged predator, searching for a way to be released.
My gaze traveled across the tattoo on his chest.
Relentless.
“Fight for me,” I begged.

   ~ Review ~

Stand completely knocked me off my feet. I didn't know what to expect for Zee's story but what a deep tangled story it was.

Zee was the quiet member of Sunder. The reserved one always looking out for the others and their families. While keeping his private life just that Zee stumbles into a situation that sets off a chain of events that has him doubting everything he's ever known.

Alexis is a girl who always puts everyone before herself. In looking out for her sister she finds herself knee deep in trouble with a stranger her only salvation.

In true AL Jackson fashion she weaves a story that grabs you by the heart and emotion pours from the Pages as she weaves a story of heartbreak, longing, choices and love.

I couldn't get enough of Zee & Alexis. I felt all of the loss, guilt and love that Zee carried as the story unfolded. His secrets revealed slowly as Alexis unknowingly was the catalyst for his soul to be set free.

Love such a simple and complex word at the same time. I loved watching Alexis & Zee fall for one another. The chemistry, angst and determination almost as strong as the love. They were truly each other's salvation and I almost {yes almost} feel like AL Jackson saved the best for last.

Yes this is the end of the Bleeding Stars Novels but if you are like me these books will stay with you long after " The End ". In closing I feel I that she gave the boys of Sunder & their families we have come to love the perfect send off.

Haven't started the series yet? Go #1click now. These books are not ones to be missed. Each member of Sunder deserving of your time and will steal a piece of your heart.
