Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Ohh the Narrators"
    Would you ever listen to anything by A .L. Jackson again?

    YES I like the writing


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Ohh the narrator makes the story a love it or hate it story. The narrator for Jared is all wrong and we he does a female voice it was so annoying. I just couldn't get past it.


    Any additional comments?

    Story line was great

    Story
    "Even the broken souls need love."

    A.L. Jackson is simply amazing I have always loved her style of writing which shows how talented she really is. She has a way of bringing out the feeling out of each character and makes you feel as if you were there.

    This book really had me in a ball of emotions: pain, hurt, love, grief, heartbreak, insecurity. All wrapped up in one. As Jared struggles with the pain and suffering of loosing his mother so many years ago he's blind to see how he hurts Alley. Coming to grips with his faults and demons Jared is finally forced to get help or he will loose Alley and the forever. He finally goes to California to confront his dad but little does he know is that his dad has in some at moves on. His father also opens up to Jared and explains everything that happened hoping that Jared will forgive him for bailing out on him.

    Alley being the beautiful soul that she is she has always loved Jared and and will wait for him as long as it takes until he makes his way back to her. I

    "It All Comes Full-Circle"
    Where does Come to Me Softly rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As only my second audiobook, the first being 'Come to Me Quietly', I'm not sure I can give much input. I will say that it didn't seem as awkward to be listening vs. reading by this book and I had grown more acclimated to the voices of the characters, which was hard for me for the first book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Allie. She was kind and patient. She seemed to be nurturing and soo loyal to Jared.


    What three words best describe Tanya Eby and Sean Crisden ’s voice?

    Soothing, older, funny


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Allie's dad flips out on Jared at Thanksgiving. I was appalled and angry. Even if Jared could be a bit too much at times with his desire to punish himself, at least I could understand the guilt and psychological trauma that he lived with. Allie's dad had no excuse for his behavior. He was just an ass!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad that Allie and Jared get their HEA. This book was much more positive in my opinion. I'm glad that Jared got it together finally.
