Aundi’s Musings…

5 Another Honest Crowns

Where have I been that this is the first book I’ve read by A.L Jackson? This book ripped straight through every single one of my emotions until I was utterly drained and emotionally wrecked. A.L’s prose is lyrical and soothing even in the darkest of situations, and I found myself completely enraptured from the moment I opened this book until the last page. Mia and Leif are beautifully broken and devastatingly honest in their lives and in the evolution of their relationship to the point your heart will physically ache for them.

This girl was nothing but temptation. Wicked, perfect sin. 

Leif is Alpha possessive deliciousness. He tries so hard to stay away from Mia thinking he isn’t good enough for her, but their connection was intense and immediate, they did not stand a chance. However, Leif is fighting some powerful inner demons and holds himself responsible for things that happened in his past. But the fact that he tries so hard to stay away from Mia shows you how good he really is. He puts her and her children before himself and you can feel the transition in him when his walls start coming down and he stops trying to push Mia away. Leif is ultimately a protector you can feel it in the intense way he handles situations and that’s exactly what Mia needs.

A rumble of need curled up his throat. “I will ruin you.” “I want you to,” I begged. I was already there. My wreckage strewn at his feet.

Mia is so strong, stronger than I think she realizes. She has had to endure some terrible situations and tragedy has gotten to her, but she did not break. Mia held herself together better than most would have, and I loved that about her. She wasn’t afraid, I mean she was, but she still put herself out there especially with Leif. She knew that their connection was a once in a lifetime thing. Her soul and Leif’s were intricately woven together through tragedy and acceptance creating their own beautifully written song that only they could hear. 

The girl written on my skin, the taste of her emblazoned on my tongue. Knew I wasn’t ever going to be the same.

This book took me on a journey that I was not prepared for, I fell in love with these characters and the evolution of their love story, that was so exquisitely written. A.L Jackson has created magic with Mia and Leif, her words will slowly and effortlessly wrap around your heart and soul leaving their imprint forever embedded. This may have been my first book by her, but it will definitely not be my last. 

Sarah’s Musings…


Kiss the Stars is everything readers have come to expect from A.L. Jackson – swoony, broken hero, beautiful prose, and an element of danger.

Leif is your pretty typical Jackson hero who is weighed down by past mistakes and sees himself as unworthy of love and the heroine. Similarly, the heroine is looking for love after some kind of damage from her past. Through their relationship they find redemption and love.

Both of the characters are likable, they have really good chemistry and the bedroom scenes are great too.

The story has a good start. Jackson really fleshed our their story and their characters. It was great to see the Sunder family again. I really felt like they contributed to the story versus being there for cameo purposes. This is a slow burn and a lot happens in the final chapters of the book. I do wish those parts would have been spread out more throughout the book versus having some much action at the end. That being said, I loved where she took the story with them. That is what made me enjoy the story so much.

Beautifully written, as A.L. Jackson’s books always are, Kiss the Stars is another romance about hope that can come with second chances.

ARC review


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 . . .
