ARC BOOK REVIEW: Kiss the Stars by AL Jackson



Something I find myself thinking when I am reading a book by AL Jackson is that her words really are a serenade. The care she takes with each one gives the book such an effortless, romantic movement. I could get lost in it all if there wasn’t a meticulously placed story that always seems to captivate me.

In her newest release, Kiss the Stars, we get some of the old with a lot of the new. The old being all the favorites from the Bleeding Stars Series as secondary characters. The new being Lyriks sister Mia as our heroine, and Leif, the drummer from that little band mentioned in AL Jacksons books, Caroline George.

Let me tell you, alpha hero’s might be hot AF but my god if I don’t love an angsty brooding rockstar. They sure are swoony. Yes, swoony. That might not be in Webster’s dictionary, but it’s in my smutty dictionary, and right beside it is a picture of Leif. SWOONY.

Reading Kiss the Stars reminded me a lot of how I felt when I read A Stone in the Sea for the first time. All in my feelings and transported to a world I never wanted to leave. AL Jackson’s books just do something to my poet’s soul, and this one was everything that I needed.

*side note, I listened to this on audible as well. Andi Ardnt, hands down my favorite female narrator. At this point, I don’t know if the woman could do a bad narration. And Zachary Weber, well I think he has bad boy rockstar down to a science. Their narration together was perfect.

A Falling Stars stand-alone romance from A.L. Jackson

"Edgy and sexy and sure to have you clinging to every hauntingly beautiful word from beginning to end. Move aside Lyrik West . . . Leif Godwin takes intense, broody, and sullen to a whole new level, and I AM HERE FOR IT." 
- NYT and USA Today bestselling author, Molly McAdams

"I'm dead. Deceased. Put a fork in me. I'm flooded with feels and adrenaline and awe after reading this glorious book! My heart is beating so fast right now. HOLY CRAP! Steam, suspense, and FEELS, FEELS, FEELS! I can't recommend this one highly enough!" 
-Lauren Rowe, USA TODAY & International Bestselling Author

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 . . .
