Blurb : 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?
Review : A Stone in the Sea (Bleeding Stars #1) by A.L. Jackson took me on quite a journey – basically I squeezed it in between several other already scheduled reviews without realizing that it was a two-part book within a series of books that were standalones.
When I tell you that I postponed a due book to read the second book right after this one – you might be able to imagine that it was a really good read. While the story is not “new” it was still told in a very refreshing way and with very likable characters.
But what really captured my attention was that this author seems to have a special gift. A way of telling the story that it ingrains itself into your mind. She writes basically the emotions – not sure how to explain it – you would have to read some chapters to understand what I mean.
This is def. a must read and I will continue that series and most probably also try something else from her just to see if this is her usual way of storytelling.
