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.
Oh how I love Jared! He has quickly become one of my favorite book boyfriends.
This is the second book in this series. We pick up where Come to Me Quietly left off. Jared is fighting through his past and his demons. Aly is being as supportive as she can. You know what happens when the past catches up with you? Drama.
I love the way A.L. Jackson writes because its so raw and real. Jared is a broken man who is looking for a way to bridge the gap from letting go and being angry and full of regret to happy. He loves Aly so much and it shows in all of his actions. He is willing to do things for her even though it hurts him.
Aly, oh that girl. I love when I read a story and the girl is a strong support system for the male. That is what she is, she is there and trys to help Jared in anyway she can. She also knows when to pull back and when enough is enough. I love that she stands up for herself, and doesn't let Jared walk all over her. I think it was the hardest thing she had to do but knew in her heart that if she did not Jared would eventually self destruct.
These two go on a journey. It is not an easy or pleasant one by any means. There are many issues they have to work on and overcome. Jared needs to let go of his past so that his future will be bright. There was a point where I cried. Like legit balled because the emotions from these characters that were being emanated was so powerful, I felt in in my soul.
Once again A.L. Jackson has written a novel that is all consuming. This book is about redemption, forgiveness, and closure. I could not have asked for a better ending to Jared and Aly's story. This is a book that will live in my heart forever.
I also chose Jared as my Book Boyfriend of the week the video is HERE
This was a 5 heart read for me.
