From the acclaimed bestselling author of Lost to You and When We Collide comes a new
adult novel of one woman’s obsession: a man who’s as passionate as he is elusive—and as
tempting as he is trouble.…
Aleena Moore is haunted by Jared Holt. It’s been six years since she’s seen her brother’s best friend, the self-destructive bad boy she secretly loved in high school. As the years pass, she knows it’s time to move on. Time to decide between a practical nursing degree and her true dream as an artist. Time to get over Jared and give another guy a chance…Just when she opens her heart to her friend Gabe, Aly returns home to find Jared sleeping on her couch. The teenage boy she loved has grown into a man she can’t resist. Covered in tattoos and lost in rage, he’s begging to be saved from his demons—the memories of the day he destroyed his family. As the two reconnect, their passion is hot enough to torch Aly’s judgment. But can she risk her future for a man who lives on the edge of destruction?
This was the first book I read by A.L Jackson and I am in love ! I refuse to give spoilers away so this review might not be long but here are my thoughts on it. I am a sucker for troubled pasts and hidden romances. Aly and Jared's story was a great love story spanning all the way back to when they were babies. A.L does a superb job of making you feel every kiss, touch, heart pounding and gut wrenching scene. A.L has this way to make you feel so connected to her characters. Being a mom there was a scene in the book where the tears ran being able to understand Aly's mom . I can tell you I cried every time Aly did I got angry with Jared alot and I did have stern talks to my kindle on his reactions to situations this by far was up there on my list of romance stories that make you believe in the power of love and what it can do to heal broken and damaged souls. I am so excited to see where Aly and Jared story goes from here. I would highly recommend this book to all my friends.
She first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student. She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life.Years later, she shared a short story she’d been working on with her two closest friends and, with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel. A.L. now spends her days writing in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three children. Her favorite pastime is spending time with the ones she loves.
