“A passionate ride of secrets, surprises and steaming hot sex. Baz and Shea’s story is vividly brought to life through words in A.L Jackson’s signature way that is like pure music.” – Penelope Ward, NYT Bestselling Author
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?
“Sebastian and Shea have a love that is powerful, passionate, and so perfectly flawed that you’ll crave more. Jackson’s best work yet!” -Molly McAdams, NYT bestselling author
“A Stone in the Sea is both sexy and powerfully emotional. Baz and Shea’s story left me breathless!” -Mia Sheridan, NYT bestselling author of Archer’s Voice
There is just something incredibly captivating about A.L. Jackson’s writing. She grabs the reader’s attention and you become consumed with her characters. From the minute I heard about this release I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy. The cover reveal threw me over the edge and I was practically salivating until release day! I stalked Amazon until I was finally able to buy a copy…which may or may not have happened seconds after the link went live…I will not confirm or deny anything 😉
The minute I started reading I was hooked. The thing I loved most was the dual POV. Her poetic style immediately grabbed my attention and I hung on every word. A Stone in the Sea is poignant, precise, and utterly beautiful. It tore my heart up in the best possible way and I am still reeling from the high. I absolutely adored everything about Baz and Shea’s story, BUT, the cliffhanger ending nearly killed me. Seriously, it’s one hell of a cliffhanger. (Don’t say I didn’t warn you.) I am waiting with bated breath for the release of Drowning to Breathe. I’m sure A.L. Jackson will find new, soul-shattering ways to continue torturing my already wounded heart. I swear I still loved everything about this book, it’s a phenomenal beginning to a new series.
Sebastian Stone stole my heart. I ached with him, for him and I wanted nothing more than to see him happy. Sebastian is the lead singer of the band Sunder. He’s dealt with many battles in his life, some tragic, some challenging, but his latest confrontation ends badly forcing him to disappear for a while. He and his band mates head to Savannah, Georgia to try to stay as inconspicuous as possible until things get smoothed over in L.A.. Sebastian has no idea that his visit to this small town will turn his world upside down.
What I wasn’t expecting was her. That fucking gorgeous girl who’d swallowed me whole with just a glimpse.
Shea is a sweet, kind-hearted woman who has no desire to let anyone new into her life. She’s been through enough and getting involved with Baz would just complicate things, but the chemistry between Baz and Shea is undeniable. Shea and Baz have a love so intense it’s hard to know where one begins and the other ends? Their love is breathtaking, but as beautiful as this complex story is, it’s equally heartbreaking. Everything between these two is intense and magnetic. The problem is, both Shea and Baz are holding back; they both have secrets, but secrets can’t stay buried forever…they always have a way of unraveling.
I’d always remained immune. Until him, Baz. The guy who looked at me as if he wanted to sink inside me, searching for a place to drown. I wanted to let him.
I adored this story and I cannot wait until June for the continuation. I just want to reiterate how insane the ending is, be ready to fall in love and have your jaw drop by the last page!
Every muscle in my body coiled with reverence. Gripping me in the tendrils of her storm, the hurricane surrounding her grew fast and fierce.
