Blog Tour ~ A Stone in the Sea by A.L. Jackson

A Stone in the SeaTOURBANNER
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?

Sweet Baby Jesus, did I LOVE this book hard!!  I am suffering a horrible book hang over and I just need more.  I am going to write a spoiler free review but it may be short and sweet because in reality I want to spill my guts but I will be good and not spoil anything.  AL Jackson is one of my very favorite authors.  I devour her books, but something about this one made me fall in love with her even more.  I found myself sneaking peeks at it all day long (at work) and I just felt the need to read it.  I couldn’t put it down.  As usual the writing style is lyrical and poetic.  The characters are divine and oh so yummy.  I LOVED the connection between Sebastian and Shea.  It was explosive and leapt from the pages.  Then there is Kallie and she is the little ray of sunshine every book needs.  AHHH this book was phenomenal.  I will say that you will need book two and there were some things that I did not see coming.  Bravo AL, bravo.  It takes a lot to pull a fast one over on me.

Excerpt 1

I dug in my bag for my keys and slipped the front-door key into the lock, turned the knob, and cracked open the door.

“Goodnight, Baz.” I turned away and went to cross the threshold.

I felt him move before I felt the blazing heat of his hand on my neck, beneath my hair, his thumb at my jaw to force me to look back at him.

Indecision swam through his eyes, voice rough. “You’re beautiful, Shea. Need you to know that.”

Slowly, I shifted, turning to face him, his right hand gliding around to the side of my neck in the same second his left came up to the other side. Holding me. Thumbs ran along the contour of my jaw, strong fingers at my nape tipping back my head.

I felt like I would drown under the intensity of him—my body coming alive—a rapid-fire of sensation licking through my body with the simple touch.

I stopped breathing when he slowly leaned in. His mouth brushed over mine in a feather-light caress.

Once. Twice. Three times.

Testing.

As if he were curious to see what it might feel like.

Like he’d gotten the answer, he gripped my face. There was little movement, just the dizzying sweetness of his lips as they pressed earnestly against my mouth. Baz inhaled, breathing the moment in. I grabbed his wrists to hold him closer as my knees went weak, the man again having the power to evoke the most foolish kind of reaction from me.

He fed from it, I could tell, the way every inch of him hardened and a rumble of pleasure vibrated from his chest.

Spinning us, he pushed me up against the wall. My back hit it with a thud, and his hands were in my hair, yanking me forward in the same second his mouth closed fiercely over mine.

He was no longer gentle, and he swept his tongue along the rim of my bottom lip, teasing at the corner, nipped me once before his tongue slipped inside.

It was an all-out assault.
