Kara's Review

5 Stars

So, I may or may not have an author girl crush on Rebecca. She’s just one of those women who attract people because she’s funny, smart, gorgeous and talented. She interacts with her fans and shares pieces of herself. I love the way she writes. It’s unique and emotional. I loved the first 2 books in the Unbreakable series and I was starting to think that Matt and Lindsay were never going to get their story. They have both been in the previous books and were having a “secret” love affair throughout them. Lindsay and Matt are perfect for each other. She is independent and stubborn and he’s laid back. He loves her something fierce, and you know that Lindsay loves him back. But, she’s given an opportunity of a lifetime and she jumps on it leaving Matt and her life behind. My heart broke for Matt. He would never have chosen his job over his love. I admit to wanting to smack her for hurting Matt, but as you learn more about Lindsay and her demons you have nothing but sympathy and empathy for her. She’s troubled, sad and lost and she turns to a destructive   source to take away her pain. Her life starts to spin out of control while her heart is breaking (and taking mine along with it.) Matt is left alone with his own broken heart and no obvious way to fix it. Landon and Reagan are there for Matt to help him pick up the pieces and move on. He will always love her, but he can’t forgive her for not choosing him. Landon has a special place in my heart and on my list of all time favorite book boyfriends so I was very excited to see more of him. We’ve watched him grow up and put his own demons to rest. We also get to see Jess and Gabe. It was the perfect end to the perfect series.

All book retailers should include a box of tissues with the purchase of this book. I cried from the beginning to the end, and I stopped reading at the Epilogue because I didn’t want to story to end. Really. Of course I finished it and it was amazing. Rebecca has outdone herself yet again. I can’t wait to read her next book!

 

“I’m never letting you go, Lindsay. Before you came along, I was just a thirty-one-year-old cop with no goals or ambitions. Now I have someone I want to live for – live with. I don’t ever want to be anywhere unless it’s with you.”

 

Emotionally I’m a dead man. She was everything to me – everything.

 

“There is nothing, absolutely nothing in this world that you could do that is unforgivable. When we had no one, it was you and me. And yes, there were times you had to idea you were helping me, but you were. Without you, I wouldn’t be here. I’d be dead. I need you happy, but most importantly I need you healthy, ” he says quietly.

 

“Did you turn it on?”

“Not yet.”

“You’re not turning it on to piss me off, aren’t you?”

“Maybe.”

“You’re just as annoying as always, you know that , right?”

“Yep.”

Excerpt

“All right, everyone.” Lindsay stands up and pushes back her chair slightly. She wobbles a bit on her heels and rests her hand on my shoulder to steady herself. “Apparently, tonight is as good as any night to let you all in on a little secret.” She wipes the palms of her hands down the sides of her black dress.

“So, for a little over a year now, Matt and I have been seeing each other.” There are a few chuckles, but mostly everyone sits silently listening to Lindsay. “We’ve kept it quiet for a while simply because it’s what worked for us.” She shrugs. “It started off casual and just turned into more, and we didn’t really make a big deal out of it.” She looks down at me and smiles the most beautiful, genuine smile I’ve ever seen. Her blue eyes sparkle in the lights from the crystal chandelier and her long, blonde hair hangs in waves. She looks almost angelic in the dimly lit room. “So, cat’s out of the bag.” She laughs and raises her glass. I stand up and raise my glass next to hers. “To Matt and me,” she says with a smile on her beautiful face. I lean in and press a long kiss to her lips while everyone hoots and hollers around us.

“I love you, sweet girl,” I say between kisses.

Synopsis

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.

Kara's Review

6hearts

I don’t even know where to start writing this review. I haven’t had this much trouble articulating my thoughts in a very long time. Let me start by saying AL Jackson is a literary genius.  The way that she uses words just blows my mind.  I really loved Come to me Quietly and that is a 5 star read for me. But, Come to me Softly is more. It’s deeper, hauntingly spectacular and it’s more than 5 stars. I was so absorbed in this story that I felt like I was there.  The writing is some of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. 

Jared comes back to Aly but nothing has really changed. He’s still running from his past. Unable to overcome the guilt of what he believes that he has done. He does not feel worthy of Aly’s love or the love of anyone.  But, he wants to be with her. He needs to be with her. It’s like air for him. He can’t breathe with out her.  He is a tortured soul just keeping the guilt and sadness down far enough for weeks at a time. But he can’t continue to go on this way. Aly has loved him her entire life.  She feels him and she is his lifeline, but she can only take so much.  She’s strong and independent and does not want to live with out him, but she needs him to fight his demons and fight for them and their family. We see more of Christopher (YAY!) and more of Aly’s parents.  A few laughs did escape me.  Jared and Christopher have their own issues to overcome, but they both try to remember that they have been best friends since they were little boys and not even time and space can smother that kind of bond.   Jared is hot, sexy, broody, amazing. There are almost no words to describe his awesomeness.  I love him. I’ve missed him and I’m not sure I’ll ever be the same with out him.  This story is filled with love, loss, pain, joy, humor, hope, sex, destruction, creation, forgiveness, peace, and life.  It’s a top 5 read of 2014 for me. Do not miss this amazing story.

 

I pressed all my hard to her soft, holding her close against me as I flattened myself to the snowy skin of her back. Mmm…yeah. I was in love with this girl. And I wasn’t going to let her go.

 Instinctively, I twisted a lock of her hair with my finger. A bond. My home.

 And damn if just that little brush didn’t cause every last inch of my body to harden.

Motherfucking trigger.

 He dropped his cigarette to the ground and toed it out with his boot. Lifting his face, he pursed his lips and exhaled toward the sky. Smoke curled around his head, climbing toward the heavens before it bled into nothing.

A throaty chuckle rumbled from his mouth and floated out to embrace my sense in an inundating swell of joy. My heart pounded as he squeezed himself through the hole that led to the center of our world, where our dreams had been bred, where we’d discovered and grown into the people we were.

 “I can’t live without you, baby…can’t sleep without you…can’t breathe without you.”

 I melted. Then fell a little further for this man. Impossible? It should be. But in that moment I slipped deeper in love with him.

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.

The Dare Smashwords

 

Synopsis

 

From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken, comes the third and final book in the New York Time’s Bestselling Bet Series…

Boring Beth Lynn has always lived up to her nickname… until she wakes up in a hotel bed next to a sexy as sin state senator she re-connected with at a wedding the previous night.

The biggest problem? She can’t seem to remember anything about the night before except for crying into a box of cookies, and she’s pretty sure Grandma Nadine slipped something in her drink. And what should have been a one night stand turns into a six day adventure when Grandma whisks them off to Hawaii to save them from the ensuing media firestorm.

Jace isn’t looking for commitment — he believes he made that clear when he left the wedding with Beth. Then again, he can’t remember much of anything other than the way her skin felt beneath his hands. Now he’s stuck with her at some lame couple’s retreat and trying his hardest to fight the attraction only a woman like Beth could invoke.

He doesn’t think it can get any worse.

But one spider attack… A donkey ride from hell… And an unfortunate episode with Viagra tea — and there’s one thing Jace knows for sure: He should never have agreed to Grandma Nadine’s suggestion in the first place.

Because if this isn’t paradise, and it isn’t a vacation — that only leaves one option.

Survival.

But to make it through alive… they might lose their hearts in the process.
