51KieHgG6FLSynopsis: 

She is his strength and he is her weakness. And this time he won’t let her go.

Edie Evans is gorgeous.
Sexy.
Kind.
She’s also the definition of off-limits.
But that didn’t stop me from sneaking into her room to comfort her at night.

But guys like me? We destroy everything, so it should have been no surprise when I destroyed us, too.
The night I sent her running, I thought I’d never see her again.
Until I saw her standing like a vision in the crowd.

Austin Stone is dangerous.
Alluring.
Tempting.
He broke my heart and I refused to give him the chance to do it again.

It’s been years since I’ve seen him, and now I can’t do anything but stare at the gorgeous, tattooed man playing onstage. I should run. I know I should. But like a fool, I run straight back to him.

Our desire is overpowering.
Our need unrelenting.

She is my hope.
He is my weakness.
We should have known a passion this intense would burn us right into the ground.

Synopsis:

A Stone in the Sea ~

He wanted nothing at all…

Until he found she had everything to give…

Sunder lead singer and guitarist Sebastian Stone has everything—fans, fame, and fortune. He also has a heart full of bitterness and a reputation for a short-fused temper. But an outward reputation rarely reveals the true man inside. Facing assault charges after trying to protect his younger brother, Sebastian is sent to Savannah, Georgia to lie low until the dust settles in L.A.

Shea Bentley is beautiful, kind, and hiding from the very lifestyle Sebastian has always embraced.

When the mysterious, tattooed stranger begins hanging out at the bar where she works, Shea is quick to recognize he is nothing but trouble, but she’s helpless to the way her body lights up every time his intense gray eyes tangle with hers.

They both soon find themselves drowning in a sea of desire and passion that won’t let them up for air.

Sebastian knows firsthand secrets never die, and he’s not the only one who’s hiding them.

Loving someone always comes with a price. But will it be Shea’s past that costs them everything?

My Review: 

A.L. Jackson is one of my favorite authors, so naturally I had to read her latest release, A Stone in the Sea. I love the story line. Sebastian “Baz” Stone is one hot man but TROUBLE seems to follow him no matter where he goes! Shea Bently is extremely sweet and patient. The chemistry between them was undeniable.

Both character’s had very deep and intense thoughts. I felt like the language used in this book was from a different literary time period and doesn’t represent the present time, in which this book takes place.

“To be blinded by her light while she drowned me in her sea of dark.”

There were also a lot of chants:

“Pulling, Pulling, Pulling”
“Real, Real, Real”
“Want, Want, Want”
“Screaming, Screaming, Screaming”
“No, No, No”

These were some of the chants and thoughts that ran through the head’s of these characters. They just didn’t seem realistic. Maybe it’s just me and this is a style of writing I do not appreciate. I appreciate the down and dirty, the nitty gritty and want the narration of the actions between the characters. I can follow that easier. I think without all of the chants and the so over the top descriptive wording, lies a really great story.

I listened to the audible. Baz’s voice in the chapters where he gave his POV was so deep. However, during Shea’s POV Chapters, his voice was a bit lower and I liked it more. The voice change was really drastic. I know many audibles are like that but it also threw me off in the beginning.

Will I still read future A.L. Jackson’s future books? ABSOLUTELY! Again, she’s one of my favorite authors and even though I don’t like this book as much as her others, it doesn’t matter, she’s still a damn good writer! (You can’t please everyone all of the time, right?!)

The question also remains will I read the next book in this series? The answer is “YES.” That ending was totally unexpected and I NEED – NO, I WANT to know what happens. I was on the edge my seat begging for more!

3-star

His heart was turned off…
Until she turned him on….

Christopher Moore gave up on the idea of love years ago. Now, his life is an endless string of parties and an even longer string of girls. Enjoying the physical perks with none of the emotional mess, he’s convinced everyone that he’s satisfied—everyone but himself.

Samantha Schultz has moved on with her life. Finishing her student teaching and living with her boyfriend, she’s deluded herself into believing she’s content. But there is one boy she never forgot—her first love—and she keeps the memory of him locked up tight. She will never allow any man to break her the way Christopher did.

When Christopher’s sister and her family move into a new neighborhood, Christopher is completely unprepared to find Samantha living at the end of the street. Memories and unspent desires put them on collision course of sex, lies, and lust. But when guilt and fear send Samantha running, Christopher will have to fight for what has always been his.
