Publisher's Summary

A Falling Stars stand-alone novel from NYT and USA Today best-selling 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....

Ehh.

I am giving this the highest possible star rating only because of Zachary Webber. Gosh, that man’s voice! He could literally read a menu to the worst possible restaurant and I’d still swoon listening to him. 😂

I usually like a A.L. Jackson’s books. In fact, I love them, but for some reason I couldn’t get into this one. I had started a few times. I think it was just really confusing and maybe if I listen to it again, I would enjoy it better. I just wasn’t feeling the chemistry between the two main characters. I usually get lost in her stories, but this time I was just plain lost.

Still, if you’re a fan of her books, read it.

Raw and emotional.

I didn't know if AL Jackson could top the Sunder boys. I loved the Bleeding Stars series. But Leif gave them a run for their money. This book was raw, gritty, angsty, heart-wrenching and oh so sexy. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down I felt every raw emotion that Jackson wrote within the pages and that's the reason I love her words I love feeling as though I am living the story right alongside her characters. Leif and Mia will capture your hearts this is a must-read.

The narrators brought this story to life. My only issue was that Mia 's voice sounded southern at times and then at other times it didn't.

I enjoyed this story two characters meet. some intense heat, things are happening the tensions building,you wonder where the story's going then all of a sudden bam you're sucked in and you can't stop until it's over. the narrator's did such a wonderful job of keeping you in the story. keeping you wanting more and it made me think I was right there.

I Love this book

This book is a spin off from the characters in the Bleeding Stars series. I highly recommend that series by A.L. Jackson. This author has a unique style of twisting and twining a story while making it come together at the end. She's creative and you can't help but fall in LOVE with her characters. You can just about reach out and touch the hotness of these bad boy musicians. Of course, you can't go wrong with narrators Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber ❤️ Looking forward to the next book Amy!!

Alright now A. L. Jackson! You did not disappoint with this heartfelt story of family, friendship, love and adversaries. Leif and Mia were beautiful together but both so flawed. I loved that they were so supportive of one another and willing to see one another through their own respective hardships but it also frustrated me that both tended to run away from things when their problems were brought to surface. Luckily for them, friends and family alike were eager to assist and forgive whatever transgressions occurred so that they’d get their HEA. Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber did a fabulous job narrating👏🏾Both articulated and conveyed Mia and Lief’s gestures/conduct throughout the story with self confidence for each demanding situation. It was a very pleasurable listening experience 🥰.

Audiobook gold!

This is not your typical damsel in distress meets tortured rock star hero! I listened to this book all in one day. It starts out with plenty of mystery and as the layers are peeled back you are left with more questions. The fiercely protective single mother is a strong female character driven by past experiences, who has made the decision to be strong for her kids. I love that! The sexy rock star drummer with a past who is driven to protect those around him - especially those who are vulnerable Events are Linked in a masterfully woven tapestry that held me right up to the end, It's not at all predictable. Mysterious, sexy, suspenseful, swoonworthy, and sweet wrapped into one book. Yes, please!

On a side note, it is wonderful to revisit characters from the Bleeding Stars series!!

Zachary and Andi are amazing narrators who definitely delivered excellent performances in this audiobook. Absolutely worth the credit!

Another Great Read

I love tp read A. L. Jackson's books. I like her writing style , description and the detail with which she writes. I love the Falling Stars series. They are stories I have difficulty putting down.
The choice of Narraters is excellent too, though I felt Zachary Webber was very monotone in his delivery, hence the four stars out of five, but that's me being finicky! Another great read!

glad for A.L. Jackson's female heroine persona <br />

this book would have been rivaling the thickness of war and peace if A.L.Jackson hadnt developed Mia the way she did.
ive listened to many of her books that are so descriptive and the way this one started i thought oh boy here we go. but Mia's understanding and substance pulled this off.
it didn't get as deep or as problem solving as her other collection...falling stars...which is freaking awesome btw.
I enjoyed the damaged hero finding himself and the twist at the end..didn't see it coming.
than you for a great book. A.L
nd the narrator's...Zachary makes my melt and Andi....what can you say to top one of the best

AMAZING! 5 STARS ALL AROUND!

Kiss the stars would have to be one of the most awe inspiring stories I've heard for a while. A.L Jackson took us on a brilliantly written emotional rollercoaster, bringing tears to my eyes, a smile to my face and leaving me craving more. Her descriptions of the scenery, emotions of the characters and general plot gives the reader/listener a perfect image to base the story. Her writing skill and technique is brilliant. Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt, being two very skilled and well respected narrators, narrate the story wonderfully and bring the characters to life in the most amazing way. I never expect anything less from these two talented narrators. They always perform brilliantly. We are instantly brought to fall in love with Mia and Leif, their stories both pull at your heart strings from the beginning. You don't have to listen to the previous books in the series to grasp the true feel of these characters. In conclusion, this was one of the best stories I have heard for a while, paired with terrific performances by two seasoned, wonderful narrators, it will be sure to leave you on the edge of your seat for the entire ride! If I could award more stars, I would!
