“6 Devastatingly Beautiful and Brilliant Bleeding Stars but Worth the Whole Constellation.

From NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson comes the next seductive, unforgettable Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel…
Zachary Kennedy has never been known as a fighter, but he’ll never regret fighting for her…
I’m Zee Kennedy.
Quiet. Reserved. Predictable.
When my brother died, everyone thought I was just the good guy who stepped up to take his place in the band.
No one knew what I was hiding. The one thing I’ve been fighting for.
For seven years, I’ve never lost focus.
Not until one chance encounter with Alexis Kensington.
Now she’s become my greatest temptation.
I knew better than to touch her, but now that I’ve had a taste, I can’t get enough.
Her kiss becomes my air. Her body my salvation.
She needed a savior and somehow she became mine.
Taking her was a betrayal. But keeping her means risking everything.
One look at Alexis Kensington, and I know she’s worth the fight.
Will my past continue to keep me down or will I finally find the strength to pull myself up and Stand

Stand is another fabulous rockstar story in A.L. Jackson's series.  In it we get Zee's story and what a story it is.   This book not only gives us a love story but also takes us on an emotional journey for not just one but both of our characters.  

Alexis wants nothing more than to pull her twin sister back into the fold, she wants to help her, save her, and see in her the sister and friend she knew when they were younger.  But taking that on is more dangerous than she can imagine and it's one such event that puts her in the sight and hands of Zee. 

Zee never expected to stumble upon a damsel in distress when he went out to follow up on one of his secrets - but that's exactly what he finds. After rescuing Alexis he finds himself drawn to her further, an instinct to protect her and care for her. 

One thing I enjoyed about the story is how very similar Alexis and Zee are in some regards - for example the guilt they both carry for things that were/are largely out of their hands.  That shows a real depth to their character and made me fall for them both quickly.  

The connection between the two of them is palpable and their journey both heart-breaking and heart warming in ways.  There's a lot going on between these two, a lot of guilt, a lot of pain, and a struggle in the present over things from the past, secrets most especially.
