Austin is so broken and even with the love and support from his brother, Sebastian, he feels utterly lost and alone. He has settled into the fact that he will live with his past sins and regrets and isn't worthy. Then one day the cries from another broken and hurt soul call to him like a beacon of light. Edie, Ash's sister, is the one thing Austin never expected. These two broken teenagers found each other and began to mend their shattered hearts. Their past pain absolutely shattered my heart. Trying to protect Edie, Austin ended up hurting her more and crushing her completely causing her to run. Which in turn was what caused Austin to leave Sebastian and go "find himself."
Four years later fate brings these two back together in a firestorm of emotions. The pain, love and anguish are palpable on the pages. Edie doesn't know if she can ever let go and trust Austin again. Austin loves her and will always "wait." My heart turned to mush when Austin spoke his heart to Edie.
"I'm so f#*~ing sorry, Edie. I know I wrecked it. That I wrecked us. For the last four years, I've woken up every single day regretting it. I went to sleep wishing I could take it back. But right here.... with me....this is where you're supposed to be. Where you've always belonged."
You will be pulled in hard and won't want to let go. There's so much to their story that unfolds. I was an absolute blubbering mess at the end of this book, but my heart was completely full. Wait is most definitely five stars that were well worth the wait!!
Despite the best efforts of his older brother Baz, lead singer for rock band Sunder, the only time he's felt any piece since that day was in the arms of one particular girl, but she's long gone.
3 years after leaving everyone and everything behind ostensibly on a journey of self-discovery Austin encounters her again. Edie Evans. The one girl who gets him because her brokenness mirrors his own. The girl he betrayed.
Readable as a standalone, Wait features already existing characters found in the other books in the Bleeding Stars series.
Told first person from alternate points of view A.L. Jackson employs a writing style that spans the divide between prose and poetry, wandering seamlessly from narrative to free verse and back again seemingly at whim. Bombarding the reader with a kaleidoscope of words and images creating, in turn, a maelstrom of emotion.
Interspersed with the occasional third person flashback Wait tells the story of two tragically wounded individuals who each hold the power to heal the other if they can only manage to avoid the self sabotage that their fallen state inexorably leads them to.
I'd imagine that there are those to find the writing style difficult to follow, but for me I found an incredibly vivid, compelling emotive tale that I simply couldn't bear to put down
This is the first book I have read by this author so I'm not sure if it is always this way, but I'm guessing I probably won't purchase another book unless it's on sale.

"Wait" intriduced us to Edie and although she was Ash's younger sister I couldn't remember if she featured at all earlier on and again this all comes back to Austin and what was going on in his world, we as readers were always just kept on the edge where he was concerned, along with the sadness and guilt that he carried with him daily we couldn't help but feel it all.
When this story opened up I felt very apprehensive simply because of who it was, you felt the sad vibes almost immediately, the grief, the guilt and of course the loss..it was all there and once Edie came into the picture it became tenfold.
We had know idea what had gone on in Edie's life but as this brilliant storyline began to unfold we stared to get some clues and it was just clues because again A.L. Jackson just gives you enough to drive you crazy with your own thoughts...it is absolutely torturous and the story gets deeper and deeper until it practically consumes you and all through this the sadness and heartache with Austin and now Edie continues to build.
Aside from everything that was Austin and Edie we still had Baz desperately reaching out but Austin still wasn't ready the guilt still eating away at him but of course it had us wondering would he ever go back home... Edie too.
There's a lot to take on board with this story and in true A. L. Jackson's poetic style it just adds to the awesomeness and makes you realise how talented she really is.
The conclusion to "Wait" started about 90% it was pretty tense and had you hoping for the best but we had to go through the worst first..!
There are plenty of emotional moments throughout and the scene at the end is no exception.
It looks like Ash might be carrying some guilt with him now? I can't wait for his story "Stay"
Thank you A.L. Jackson..!!
This has everything you could ask for in a book and more. It touches on some very strong and emotional issues but is written beautifully and with such care. I couldn't put it down!
This one answers a lot of unanswered questions from the first books and it was just as heartbreaking as I expected! I wanted to hug Austin and Edie all the way through, they have both been through so much.
Lovely characters lovely story worth a read.
Mir ist da, ganz offen gesagt, zuviel "BlaBla".
Seitenlange, für mich viel zu ausführliche Gedankengänge, die mir das Gefühl von zu sehr gewollter Dramatik vermittelten. Das war für mich auch deswegen anstrengend, weil sie in mir das Gefühl hinterließen, dass es sich eben nicht um ein als Standalone lesbares Buch handelt (es war mir schon klar, dass das Buch Teil einer Serie ist). So ellenlange Gedankengänge führen dazu, dass ich mich frage, ob hier nicht doch ein Wissen aus vorherigen Büchern vorausgesetzt wird, was ich nicht habe. Ich kann jedoch sagen, dass es in entscheidenden Dingen nicht so ist.
Die Chemie zwischen Edie und Austin kommt super rüber, daher von mir schwache drei Sterne.
Für mich hat das Buch leider nicht funktioniert.
I don’t know why but I found the writing style changed somehow and personally didn’t enjoy it as much. It seemed very choppy. The life lessons for the characters were beautiful though.
Ahhhh swoooon... Austin Stone... Tormented, haunted by the past, lost, and guilt ridden. This boy, living with the loss of his twin brother and also pining away for his soulmate and lost love. And this girl, Edie Evans, also haunted by her past actions and still feeling the betrayal of the boy she trusted and loved unconditionally.
When this boy and girl reconnect, the pull between them is palpable and electric, and their love has not diminished in the slightest.
AL Jackson's prose is beautiful and spellbinding - I was drawn into this stunning story of loss, trust and love. And the final chapter is absolute PERFECTION, I welled up with tears and had goosebumps.
