Publisher's Summary

Fourteen years ago, my life changed forever. 

My sister disappeared. That day I was selfish. That day I chose myself over her. And that day, I lost everything. 

Including Nikki Walters. 

She's the girl I've loved my whole life. She's gorgeous. Caring. Every single thing I've ever wanted but denied myself. She was my sister's best friend, and I destroyed any chance of keeping her. 

When her safety is threatened, I have a second chance to do the right thing. But as soon as she moves in, I want her in all the wrong ways. 

All it takes is a brush of her hand, and I'm losing all control. 

The fire between us is only burning hotter. 

But neither of us saw what was coming. 

And it just might be Nikki Walters who destroys me in the end. The highly anticipated sexy, suspenseful stand-alone second-chance romance from New York Times best-selling author A.L. Jackson.

PERFECTION.. FROM THE COVER TO THE LAST WORD

A.L. Jackson is waaaay up there when it comes to my favorite authors because over and over again she delivers a plot that has me riveted.. hanging on to every cleverly placed word.. captivated by the torment of broken characters.. and anxious what delicious feels will be uncovered in each and every chapter.

Ollie and Nikki’s second chance love story takes you on an emotional rollercoaster where you discover their road to forever was abruptly stopped when they were just teens the day Nikki’s bff/Ollie’s sister went missing and the fallout was devastating, tragic, life-altering and would span years. Guilt and remorse filled the gap in Ollie’s heart leaving no room for Nikki, for relationships or for any HEA plans.. but, when Nikki’s life is threatened, the sexy broody possessive alpha steps in to help what’s always been his. Slowly their invisible bond ignites the fumes of their intense sizzling chemistry until it rages out of control.. but, just as Ollie’s impenetrable walls start to crumble, all hope is lost once again when some tragic shocking news is uncovered. And, as secrets from the past start to unravel, it causes angst, drama, suspense and deadly consequences.

Worth a credit? Oh yes, yes a million times yes. ALJ has such a wonderful way with her words.. and yet again they’re beautiful, cleverly used, tight and poetic - her scenes were descriptive and lure you in from the start - her characters were loveable - her hero was a passionate but broken soul waiting for his strong loving woman to Lead Him Home. The dual POV romance was flawless well-paced perfection with a good balance of steamy sex scenes. And the choice of two great narrators brought the story, its characters and their emotional journey to life.

Nikki and Ollie are everything!

I could not wait for Ollie and Nikki's story and Amy did not disappoint! The narration was on point as usual! The right amount of angst and suspense with all the love you can feel! I wanted to jump through my phone and punch Ollie at times but he made up for it and more! Get this book NOW! the entire series!

Wonderful end to series!

I honestly have loved every audiobook by A.L. Jackson! This is the third book in this series and a pretty emotional one. Young love and tragedy that is affecting everyone, even over a decade later. Ollie is the hero and owns a bar in a small southern town. He’s been close to Nikki since they were very young, but when her best friend (his sister) disappeared at age 16 life changed for them. This story was about coping with tragedy and loss, about loving someone even when they’re unlovable and about finding your way. Narration was excellent!

I love this narrator, and the series!

I love this series! I love the narrator however I wish she did not play all three male parts in the series. Also I started to notice a pattern between the three men in the series.

A.L Jackson has blown me away once again. Such a talented author. The fantastic narration of Andi Ardnt and Joe Arden made it even more real to listen.

Snooze

I don't know why, but this book bored me to tears. I think it was Ollie that ruined the book.

Enjoy this series

I really enjoy this series. While this is written so it can be a stand alone, it is better to follow the story from the first book in the series!

Love this Series

This is a great series of books. I absolutely loved each one and each narrator as well.

There are certain writers that I've decided I prefer to listen to their stories rather than reading and A.L. Jackson is one of those authors for me. Ever since her Bleeding Stars series, I just auto click on the latest audiobook release.

And Ollie's story is a fine wrap to this series. Looking Forward to her next release.

Same story plan as previous in series

Great story. Only 4 stars as it followed a similar theme to previous books in the series. Very well written though, touching on some delicate topics in the forms of emotional, domestic and child abuse.

It was ok

All a bit obvious and I didn’t connect with the characters as much as I’d want. This was the case with the last book in this series too. A.L. Jackson seems to have lost a bit of the special something they used to have. Hope they get it back soon!
