From the New York Times bestselling author of Come to Me Quietly comes
a scorching new adult romance in the Closer to You series.
A second chance at life…
A second chance at love…
  Jared Holt never thought he deserved either—until he found both in the arms of Aly Moore. Aly has loved Jared for as long as she can remember, and she’s more than ready for the future they’re making together. But Jared can’t help remembering his own family. And he’ll never forgive himself for what happened to them. How can he allow himself the very happiness he once destroyed? To live a life worthy of Aly, Jared knows he has to stop running and finally put his past to rest. But when he decides to face his demons head on, he encounters more than he bargained for: a dangerous mix of jealousy, lies, and dishonest intentions. When those intentions threaten Aly, Jared loses all control, giving into the rage that earned him his bad boy reputation years before. And he’ll fight to protect her no matter what it costs…even if he destroys himself in the process.

*Enjoy the trailer created by the wonderful Becca the Bibliophile*

come to me quietly

Aleena Moore is content with her life. She has goals and dreams and an easy smile. She also has a secret she holds locked inside. Jared Holt believes he doesn’t deserve to love or be loved. He destroys everything he touches. Haunted by the mistake that shattered his life, he’s fled from the memory of that pain. Jared doesn’t know why he’s compelled to return, but finds himself drawn back to the place where it all began. The exact place where it ended. When he runs into his childhood best friend, Aleena’s older brother Christopher, he agrees to share Christopher and Aleena’s apartment while he looks for a place of his own. Aleena is no longer the little girl Jared remembers from his past and evokes feelings in him he never wanted to feel again. Terrified of destroying her, he fights to keep her away. But her touch is something he can’t resist—the touch that sealed his fate. Their pasts are intertwined and their futures uncertain. The only truths they know are the secrets they whisper in the night.

A.L. Jackson is the New York Times bestselling author of Take This Regret and Lost to You, as well as other contemporary romance titles, including Pulled, When We Collide, If Forever Comes, and Come to Me Quietly. 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. Look for Come to Me Softly and When We Met: Behind Her Eyes coming soon.

My Come to me Softly Review ...

Oh! Boy! Jared is one broken boy. 

Gah! My heart! Poor Jared.  He so badly wants to move forward but his demons have a fierce hold on him that could destroy everything because his life line is a very fragile thing.

Jared and Aleena can finally move forward.

Or Not. 

God! Jared is trying to shove it all under the rug but you can't live like that and it all comes to a head.  Aleena is the strong one for sure in the book as she powers through and makes tough choices knowing she has to in order to have the full package of love and happiness.

Jared has to deal with his past and learn to forgive himself.  For Jared it's so much more than that terrible accident.  It is also about abandonment when he needed it most and the ability to say goodbye

 Gah! I loved this heartbreaking story.  I think A.L. Jackson is a bloody genius when it comes to emotional turmoil.  She has a way to grab your heart and make you feel like you are going through everything that her characters are going through.   You heart breaks for poor broken Jard but love, hope and redemption are powerful and beautiful things.  I loved this tragic story and I especially loved Jared.  My heart bleeds for the broken men who become whole with true love.  I am such a sucker for that story line. ;) 

4.5 Gah! I love Jared thumbs up!
