The danger in pretending is it becoming real…

Sebastian Stone, Sunder front man and guitarist with a rap sheet about ten miles long, escaped to Savannah, Georgia, to get away from the trouble he’d caused.

Not find more of it.

The moment he saw Shea Bentley, he saw beneath all her sweet and innocence to something that went deeper.


Their relationship was built on secrets; their love built on lies.

Sebastian never imagined how deep her secrets went.

When the past and present collide, Sebastian and Shea find themselves fighting for a future neither believed they deserved. Their passion is consuming and their need unending.

Now, holding the truth in his hands, Sebastian is faced with sacrificing everything he’s come to love to protect Shea and his family.

Two pasts intertwined.

Two lives bound.

Will their demons drown them or will Shea and Sebastian finally learn to breathe?

Drowning to Breathe is Book 2 in Sebastian and Shea’s two-part duet. Their story begins in A Stone in the Sea.

◄◄ My Thoughts ►►

Lost beneath the surface where she became the air, my air. Drowning to breath.”

A.L. Jackson ramps up the sweet and sexy in this follow up to Book 1 in the Bleeding Stars series. Drowning to Breathe is beautifully written and so romantic! Baz is perfectly imperfect! Shea and (her daughter) are too cute. The Sunder bandmates and Austin were great secondary characters. It all just worked.

What I loved: This book combines so many elements I adore in romance – marriage, babies, instant families, cute kids, with a large dose of drama. If you’ve followed my reviews for a while, you know I love cute kids (in books – LOL) and Callie was super cute.
The main and secondary characters: The love and dedication between Shea and Baz is lovely. They’re a perfect match.
The secondary characters: I cannot wait to see how the rest of the band mates evolve and the women who knock them on their behinds. It’s going to be so much fun.
The storyline: the plot, storyline, and added drama was intriguing. I was thoroughly entertained and engaged throughout.

Audiobook review:  Sebyo and Andi Arndt.  That’s pretty much all I need to say, right?  It was awesome!

Overall, a very well-written and solid romance. I rate it: 4.5 Stars
