Publisher's Summary

Maxon Chambers has a way of stealing all the attention. All my affection, and all my dreams. What I needed to remember was he’d stolen my good judgment and my virginity, too. When he broke up with me, I ran across the country, and swore I’d never return to Broadshire Rim. But here I am, 13 years later.   

Maxon is all grown up. Sexier than sin and more tempting than ever. A detective on the Charleston force, he lives on the outside of safety, devoted to protecting the people of his city. But with the way he’s looking at me now? I’m pretty sure what needs protecting is my heart.  

Can we mend the pieces of us? Or will he leave my heart shattered forever?

PREPARE TO BE BLOWN AWAY

Dear Amy, from the moment I received your Newsletter about the release of this, your latest book, I’ve been eagerly checking Audible’s vast and varied virtual shelves impatiently waiting for it to become available as an audiobook... and YAY IT’S FINALLY HERE. And it didn’t disappoint.. in fact it may even be your best book so far.. but then again, I do say that about all your books. You write about bleeding hearts, broken promises, shattered dreams and second chances so well. Your characters have layers, your rich storylines have depth, detail and colorful descriptions and the ebb and flow of the ever-changing emotional tides means there’s never a dull moment. You woo, wound and wow me with your wonderful wordsmith abilities, you tempt and tease me with your sexy covers and you pick the perfect partnership to breath life into your stories. This second chance love story was compelling and binge-worthy listening as Mack and Izzy struggle to get over what happened in their pasts, vanquish emotional demons, seek forgiveness, learn lessons, lay new foundations and tentatively move towards their bright new future. It was heartbreaking, deeply emotional, truly romantic, tender, touching and hauntingly beautiful.

With solid likeable characters, colorful descriptions, an emotional well-paced storyline, sweet sweet secondary characters and a few flashback chapters sprinkled in to give depth, to highlight humble childhood beginnings and to reveal what went wrong. There was pain.. and heat.. and heart.. and passion.. which shone a light on sacrifice and a pure selfless love that deserved its second chance and its HEA. And, what I also truly love about your stories are the interconnecting threads linking friends and family together from your other books who all intertwine so the listener gets that ‘comfortable’ feeling of catching up with old friends you haven’t seen for a while, hearing about and celebrating in their happy anniversaries, achievements and announcements. As we all know, good narration is the vital element with audiobooks, choosing well is crucial, and you always pick the perfect pair to bring your stories to life. Andi and Jacob WERE those characters, they bled the feels, they evoked the senses and became the heart and soul of your dual POV story.

Worth a credit? Absolutely YES.. I never doubt your abilities, never hesitate with purchases and never rate your stories less than 5 star. Congratulations.. you can be one proud mom giving us this beautiful baby.

This book owned me!

Ms. Jackson does it every single time. She writes these incredibly real characters and I feel.like a part of the story. She completely sucks me in and I can't help but devour all her words. And Jacob Morgan is my absolute favorite male narrator. Get this series, and feel all the feels.

Childhood love. 1POV. HEA. Standalone.

⚠️ minor Trigger warning may be needed spousal and child abuse.

This is a “simmering “ romance. It’s a somewhat emotional listen. The narration is on fleek. Yes. I said “fleek”. Can’t beat the Aa & Jm powerhouse. It has a sweet HEA but I’m slightly annoyed bc I don’t feel like all the villains got their dose of Karma. This is a standalone but there are more books in the “series” so I can hear about the secondary characters.

🤭 Complainer’s Comments (spoilers)

I was slightly annoyed with the made up Ideals that Mac made up as his reason for leaving Izzy. I thought Clarissa had some major dirt on Mac and Izzy, like the couple had murdered someone and Clarissa didn’t turn them in. Nope. It was bc Mac thought he wasn’t good enough for Izzy and instead of staying and protecting her from Other threats (I thought Clarissas father might have done something
to Izzy) Mac left Izzy and didn’t really tell her why.

🥰 Loved

Having a child with a disability myself, I love it when authors include characters that have some kind of mental or physical obstacle. And it was written so respectfully So thank you AL Jackson.

yes

I loved this one. There was some real stuff that the characters have been through. Relatable things, Unthinkable things. I loved that it wasn't like a big storm created over nothing that could have easily been avoided. books with those types of storylines seem pointless to me in a waste of my time. This book had the characters stories go back, way back. The narrator's did an awesome job with all the different voices they had to portray. Kid voices, opposite gender voices, Etc. They did great! I'm definitely going to read this one again.

Fantastic!!!

I loved all aspects of this story! There were some gripping parts and times where your heart strings were pulled. I wish it was a little longer to be honest! It seemed like as soon as we figured out the big issue, it was over. I think the problem could have been drawn out longer. None the less, loved the story and LOVE this author!
