It has been quite some time since I’ve picked up an A.L. Jackson book and it seemed like it was overdue for one. And that’s when I decided to pick up Kiss the Stars. I have to say that A.L. Jackson is one of the poetic writers that I’ve read from and that’s one of the reasons why I’ve loved some of the books I’ve read by her.
I was immediately sucked into Mia and Leif’s story. From the first moment they met, it was literally like your breath was sucked out of you. Plus when was the last time I read a story with a broken hero, I’m such a sucker for those. But Mia has her share of a horrific past.
There’s no doubt that these two were perfect for one another, they understood each other completely. I loved that Mia was the light to Leif’s darkness. He was such a great character, but his past is just absolutely heartbreaking. And there’s so much guilt that he’s been harboring for too long.
These two found love, they found something beautiful together. And I loved their story of love and all the amazing support that surrounded them.
The one thing that I have to say is that I found myself coming out of the story at times. I do love Jackson’s writing, but it was a bit repetitive between them around the middle. Don’t get me wrong, I love the poetic and beautiful writing style that she has, but I struggled with it a little when overtakes majority of the story.
Still definitely a great story that I highly recommend.
