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

Sweet Ending

Great follow up to complete the story of Jared and Aly. Just enough angst combined with sweetness.

I loved this story

I really loved these two books! This was a great sequel! I will look for more books by this author! Although the Male narrator was not the same as the first book, he did a good job. Tanya Eby is a favorite narrator of mine. That is how I came across this author, was by looking for books narrated by Tanya Eby.

I cried real tears

Loved the storyline! I was initially bothered by the switch in narrators from the first book, yet the story held my attention. I smiled and cried throughout this story. Great job A. L. Jackson!!!

Bad narration

The story is ok for the young adult it is but what ruins it is when you change narrators from the first book and none of them were that good. When she does the male parts it's like nails on a chalkboard to me I don't why it just is. I really like all the other books by this author in audible.

Good ending

I think that the audiobook version of this book was well done. The story maybe had just a little bit too much angst for me to really enjoy it. But the ending was great and the story flowed smoothly. Nice narration

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
