Book Review: STAY by A. L. Jackson


Title: Stay 
Author: A. L. Jackson 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: January 22nd, 2017 

I'm Ash Evans.
The life of the party. 
Hot. Rich. Charismatic. 
A tattooed rock star with the world at my feet. 
I burn through women faster than the strike of a match.

I've embraced my lifestyle and live it to the fullest. 
Until the day my lifestyle caught up to me.

Willow Langston found me at my lowest.
Literally.
Facedown in a puddle of my own blood.

I owe her my life and I have three months to repay that debt. 
What I never should have done was touch her. Kiss her. Take her to my bed.

Love wasn't supposed to be a part of the equation.
I gave up that nasty complication a long damned time ago.
Now I want her more than my next breath. 
But she doesn't know what I know.

Do I leave to protect her? Or can I face my demons and ask her to Stay?


Everything about this book...is perfect. I always look forward to having a new Jackson book to read and this one definitely didn't disappoint. But when does she ever? She can always make me cry, laugh, and cry some more but always feeling utter love for her characters. 

The Bleeding Stars series is one of my all time favorites. I never get tired of reading about this band and these amazing characters. I feel like they are apart of me now and I never want to let them go. And Willow and Ash were no different. 

These two...they deserve all the happiness in the world but life has had different plans for them and they haven't been the best plans. They have suffered, they have lost, they have felt pain...they know what true suffering feels like. It's nothing new to them but they have learned to live with it. To bury it down and live with the pain that life has cruelly chosen to give to them. 

But they find comfort in each other. They find peace with each other. Their messed up lives fade when they are with each other. Though Willow is skeptical of Ash and his rockstar/playboy life...she can't ignore how he makes her feel. Alive. Like her life is worth living, despite her suffering. 

If anyone deserves happiness in their life, it's these two. Reading their book felt like real life. Like I was peeking into the window of Willow and Ash. Everything about this book felt so real. Like I could feel their pain, their suffering...their smiles. Stay is the soul source of what living should look like. Rising from the ashes. 

But can Willow and Ash move past their pain and see what's right in front of them? Or will Ash run back to his rockstar life and give up the chance to stay?
