NEW RELEASE!! Follow Me Back by AL Jackson ~ Sarah A’s Review

The next seductive, unforgettable stand-alone romance in the FIGHT FOR ME series from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson . . .

Kale Bryant. Arrogant. Gorgeous. Commanding.

This ER doctor is married to his job. His only vice is one-night stands and short-lived flings. He learned a long time ago loving someone isn’t worth the risk.

Harley Hope Masterson. Beautiful. Brave. Sweet.

The owner of a small coffee shop knows what it’s like to struggle. Embroiled in a bitter divorce, she’s threatened with losing everything.

When Kale accepts a new position down the street from Hope’s shop, he begins to question every wall he’s built around his heart.

He wants her in a way he hasn’t wanted anyone.

One touch is fire.

One kiss, and he’s spinning out of control.

But taking her won’t come without consequences.

Hope is in for the fight of her life. One neither of them saw coming.

Now Kale must decide if loving her is worth risking it all.

She will fight with everything she has.

But sometimes even hope needs a hero . . .

I’m going to be really honest right now and say I did NOT love Kale in Show Me the Way, I don’t know why, but he just seemed a little too aloof, too unaffected.  Something about the way he always felt completely chill about everything was concerning.  Now that I’ve read his book I understand so much more why his façade is built that way.  Once we got a peek behind the ice wall he’d constructed he was a fascinating creature.

Follow Me Back is the third book – 1 novella, two full-length novels – in AL Jackson’s Fight for Me series.  Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone, though the characters are all friends and you see a lot of the previous couples throughout the subsequent novels.  Follow Me Back is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Hope and Kale.

Complicated was the theme of this book.  Both Hope and Kale were upfront about how complicated their lives were, but I don’t think the word fully explained precisely how insane the things they had been through and were still going through were.  It also didn’t touch the kinds of feelings they developed for one another and all the ways they’d go to the ends of the earth to keep the ones they loved safe and happy.  Kale and Hope were complex characters, and each new layer of their personas that was uncovered made me love them more.

Follow Me Back was an emotional read, not that it was horribly sad – some moments were, though – but it ran me through the gamut of emotions.  In a matter of paragraphs, things could go from deliriously happy, to heart-crushing desolation, to burn-the-world furious.  It was a beautiful ride, and those intense emotions made Hope and Kale’s story riveting and moving.

AL Jackson is a master of telling emotional stories, often with deep meaning.  Follow Me Back was a perfect example of that.  She crafts her words for maximum impact and continually pulls on her readers’ heartstrings.  I once again find myself in love with her prose and can’t wait to see what she has in store for her readers in Ollie’s story.
