Stand by A.L. Jackson had all the feels. It was a touching story of love, loss, hope and finding redemption.
Zachery “Zee” Kennedy has been living two lives and it is tearing him apart. I absolutely loved Zee. He was compassionate, loving, strong and so determined to do the right thing. But in exchange of doing the right thing, he gave up everything that ever mattered to him. But he was determined to live by his choices, until the day she fell into his life.
Alexis Kensington was sweet, caring and generous. I loved how patient and strong she was for Zee. She knew there was so much more to him, but she went at his pace. She was the perfect heroine for Zee.
Zee and Alexis had so much in common. Loss and fighting for what and who they believed in. Giving up was not in their nature, but it also did not let either of them live their life fully. They each broke my heart. Zee hid so much. He struggled every day. Alexis fought for the one person who needed her most, but did not want her help. Together they would hold each other up or rip each other apart.
Zee saved Alexis when she needed someone the most. They immediately felt a strong connection, but Zee tried to stay away, until he couldn’t. But he knew the secrets he kept and the promises he made could not be jeopardized, even for Alexis. But he also understood what she was going through and wanted to help her, but the cost to everything that mattered to him would be too high.
As I read their story, my heart ached. You could see their connection and how deep it went. But Zee holds so much back, while Alexis jumps right in. Zee is honest with Alexis and what he can give her, nothing really, but again, he cannot stay away. But as his past and present collide, the repercussions may cost him everything.
Stand was an emotional story. Two people who found each other when they needed each other the most. Their journey was angst-filled, with a love so deep, you will feel it in your heart.
