All of Me by AL Jackson ~ Sarah A’s Review

People call me callous. Arrogant. Ruthless.

I call myself tenacious.
One of the most powerful attorneys in Charleston, I don’t let anyone or anything stand in my way.
Until a chance encounter changes everything.

One glance.
One touch.
One night.
It only leaves me wanting more.

But Grace is off limits. Most people would even say forbidden.
Everyone knows an attorney can’t sleep with his client.
Too bad I already did.

And even with the threat of losing everything, I don’t know if I can stop myself from having her again…

Occasionally I read other reviews between finishing a book and writing my own review, just to see if what I was feeling in a book was the same as what other people were. I did that with All of Me and noted that several people had an issue with their insta-lust. I suppose it’s something you can only appreciate if you’ve experienced it. Personal aside: I met my husband when I was 16 and he 20 (far too old at that point in my life), after a less than five-minute interaction I compared every other person I dated to him until the day I married him, six years later. Sometimes your heart and soul know better than your rational mind. All of that to say, I loved the fact that their connection was instant and intense.

I loved Ian and Grace’s love. Even before either of them was ready to admit that was what was happening between them, their connection was bigger and more beautiful than anything they were looking for, anything they wanted. They both ran from it, their fear ruling their choices, but neither of them could fight the pull back to the other, and that was what made their relationship so special.

We’d seen a little of Ian’s story in the first book in this series, More of You, and I was so happy we got to finally see his tragic childhood and what had formed him into the man we’d met. His history was dark and the guilt he carried immense. My momma heart broke for him and wanted to wrap that poor boy up and keep him safe. Grace’s story was no less heartwrenching, and I connected with her deep-seated need to protect her babies with every molecule of her being. Together they gathered all their broken pieces and made something magnificent and impenetrable.

My only wish for All of Me is that it be a little less predictable. I could see every twist and turn coming a mile away, and it dampened my reading experience. I know all of the pieces have to be in place to make a story come together, but a lot of the plot points in this book were just too convenient.

All of Me is the second book in AL Jackson’s Confessions of the Heart series. The books in this series are interconnected stand-alones and can easily be read independently of one another. All of Me is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Grace and Ian.

My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs . . .

The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble.

A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder.

My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior.

I fell hard and fast.

He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart.

Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door.

Sexier than he’s ever been.

Provocative and commanding.

Successful and powerful.

The man I always knew he would become.

But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again.

Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.

Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.
Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .

More of You – a Confessions of the Heart second-chance, stand-alone romance

***  Available in Kindle Unlimited  ***
Amazon | Audible

The prologue of More of You started with a heartbreaking bang and relentlessly dug me through all the pain, torture, love, and healing that comes with an emotional reunion after ten years of miserable separation.

More of You is a moving second-chance romance.  The emotions this book pulled me through were overwhelming and beautiful.  AL Jackson has a fabulous ability to wring the full gamut of feelings from her readers, and she did that to the extreme in this book.  She was especially proficient at conveying how much pain Faith and Jace had gone through – and continued to experience – while they were apart.  There were times when my heart ached, and I felt sick to my stomach because of things they’d suffered through.

One of my favorite parts of More of You was the flashback scenes that took us through Faith and Jace’s previous relationship and all the significant moments they’d experienced while they were apart.  How she related them to the things happening in the present and how she tied them all together, in the end, was profound.  It gave us a complete picture of how intricate and intense the life Jace and Faith had unwittingly been brought into was.

I loved the suspense element in this book and how the root of it was woven through all the pain Faith and Jae had experienced throughout their relationship.  Ms. Jackson did a wonderful job of leaving a trail of breadcrumbs throughout the past and present to lead us to the crux of the nightmare they were living in.

More of You is the first book in AL Jackson’s Confessions of the Heart series.  These books are slated to be interconnected standalones, each will be a complete story and can be enjoyed without reading other books in the series.  More of You is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Faith and Jace.

AL Jackson is a master of hugely emotional, sweeping romances.  She weaves powerful stories of hope and healing, often adding sweet elements of other types of love into them which adds a layer of poignancy to her work.  She peppers her work with sentences and passages that are so sublime; I often find myself stopping to revel in her astounding prose.

AUTHOR: Callie Henry
SERIES: Love is for Everyone
GENRE: YA Romance
RELEASE DATE: August 6th 2018

Excerpt from A DATE FOR HANNAH (Love Is For Everyone, #1) by Callie Henry. All rights reserved. Reprinted with permission.

“Hey, you know what? You didn’t let me finish my pitch before, when I asked you to go on a date with me.”

She sighed, her eyes losing a little brightness and her smile dimming as she turned away to look at the reception guests on the dance floor. He tilted his head to see her better, and though he didn’t know her well enough to read her expression with accuracy, he saw wariness as her eyebrows knitted together. But when she sucked her lower lip into her mouth, he perceived a little bit of longing too, which made him press his advantage.

“Didn’t you wonder how I knew all that Shakespeare stuff?” he asked.

“Yes, actually,” she said, looking surprised by his question. “Come to think of it, I did wonder, but then you distracted me.”

He grinned. “Good distraction, right?”

She rolled her eyes, but her lips tilted up a little, which made him happy. “You were saying?”

“The OSF is twenty minutes from my house. I worked there taking tickets over spring break last year. So, if you’d like to go with me sometime—as a date—I might even be able to take you backstage. I’m sure Julia would give us a tour of the Allen Elizabethan Theatre.”

“Julia?” said Hannah, raising an eyebrow.

He saw it in her eyes, the way she was mentally backing away from him at the mere mention of another woman. Is that how she saw all men? As players? As someone who’d hurt her and cheat on her if she let her guard down? He couldn’t help the way his feelings for her surged as he watched her—how much he wanted to be the person to prove to her that she could give her heart to someone who would keep it safe.

Julia is my Mom’s friend who works in group sales, is married, and has two kids.” He pulled Hannah’s hand behind his back, holding it hostage and drawing her closer until her chest pressed against his. “And to be clear? I wouldn’t ask you out if I was seeing someone else. I don’t do that. I’m not with anyone right now, Hannah … except you.”

She flinched, and her face went utterly blank, except for her eyes, which looked worried and uncomfortable.

“You’re not with me,” she said softly, loosening her hand from his grasp and stepping away from him.

“I didn’t mean—”

“I have to use the ladies’ room. I’ll find you in a little bit, okay?

She turned and started walking away, while he babbled incoherently at her back:

“Wait. Hannah! No. I didn’t…I just—I just meant…Crap!”

He stopped talking when she was out of sight.

Dang it, Liam! Why do you have to be so freaking intense?

Probably because it bothered him that she kept trying to friend-zone him when he didn’t feel friendly toward her and pretty much hadn’t from the moment he’d laid eyes on her.

There were some girls he met—especially the shallow, self-absorbed ones—who turned him off the moment he met them. Most of the popular girls at his high school thought he was trouble, and even after he’d straightened himself out, they didn’t give him a chance. Not really. They’d fool around with him at a party—there was never a shortage of popular girls who wanted to make out with a bad boy—but on Monday morning, they’d act like they were too drunk to remember kissing him. And it sort of sucked, because Liam Callahan was one of those guys who quietly longed for a girlfriend, even though his reputation had pegged him inaccurately as a player.

He wanted to date someone. He wanted to leave a party with her on Saturday night, and hold her hand when he walked into school on Monday morning. He wanted to be the first person she texted when she was happy or upset about something. He wanted to invite her over for dinner with his mom. He wanted to introduce her to his friends:

You guys, this is my girlfriend.

He’d imagined saying those words about a thousand times, but he’d never had the chance to say them, and it bothered him. A lot.

But tonight? Meeting Hannah? Somehow it felt like maybe what he wanted was actually, finally, possible.

When Hannah looked up at him with those huge, vulnerable, dark brown eyes, he felt hopeful.

“Damn it,” he growled softly, frustrated that he’d pushed her too hard.

Maybe he was being pushy, but he liked her, and for all he knew, she was driving back up to Brookings in the morning. He wanted her to say yes to a date—his heart needed to know that he’d see her again.

Callie Henry is the YA pen name of New York Times bestselling contemporary romance author, Katy Regnery

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

To Elizabeth Ayers, New York City had always been a dream. She’s worked her entire young life to make it here.

Groomed to one day take over his father’s law firm, attending Columbia University was Christian Davison’s only option.

Christian Davison has a plan for his life. He is determined to become an attorney and to one day take his place as partner in his father’s law firm. Nothing will stand in his way, not even Elizabeth Ayers and their unborn child.

After Christian cuts her from his life, Elizabeth spends the next five years struggling to provide for her daughter and willing to sacrifice anything to give her child a safe, comfortable life. For five years, Christian has regretted the day he walked away from his family and will do anything to win them back just as Elizabeth will do anything to protect her daughter from the certain heartache she believes Christian will bring upon them.

When Christian wrestles his way into their lives, Elizabeth is faced with asking herself if it is possible to forgive someone when they’ve committed the unforgivable and if it is possible to find a love after it has been buried in years of hate.

Or are there some wounds that go so deep they can never heal? They say everyone deserves a second chance.

My heart rose higher in my throat with every pound on the wood. It was as if an accelerant had been poured directly into my blood.

It was close to two in the morning.

Someone showing up at this time of night—in the middle of a downpour, no less—should make me cautious.

If I searched myself, I guessed a little part of me was afraid, but only because I was sure of who was on the other side of the door.

He’d always been dangerous.

Dangerous to my sanity.

Dangerous to my heart.

Obviously, none of that mattered. I was drawn to him anyway.

Tied.

Nothing more than an offering.

I hoisted up on my tiptoes to peer through the peephole, and I sucked in a breath when I saw the tortured face pleading back.

So gorgeous in its hardened, chiseled way. Wind gusted through the longer pieces of his dark-blond hair, his shirt soaked and clinging to his massive body from having to make his way through the deluge that pummeled at the roof.

Quickly, I worked through the lock and yanked open the door.

Chills flashed.

A shockwave.

All brought on by the sight of him.

“Ollie,” I whispered, my spirit in an uproar.

He staggered in with a half-drained bottle of scotch clutched in his hand and kicked the door shut behind him.

He dropped the bottle to the carpeted floor, and there was no time to contemplate the thud before he was stalking my way.

Body massive.

A burly, beautiful, beast of a man.

I took a startled step back, sucking for the air his presence had stolen. Energy streaked through the room. Those big hands darted out and captured my face in the same second his mouth captured mine.

Lips and tongue and searing heat.

Liquor kisses.

My head spun and need blistered across my skin.

He groaned in misery and released the words between the manic scourge of his mouth. “I need you, Nikki. Need you in a way I haven’t needed anything in all my life. Take it away. Fuck . . . please take it away.”

Lyric by Molly McAdams ~ Sarah A’s Review

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams delivers the first captivating, stand-alone novel in her REDEMPTION series spin-off—the REBEL series . . .

I’m not the kind of girl you forget.
I wish I was.
I wish I was normal.
That I could blend into a crowd. Have a future with the man I’ve loved my entire life…

Maxon James understands me in a way others can’t.
For as long as I can remember, he’s vowed that one day he would claim my wild, rebel heart. God knows I wanted him to try. I wanted the life he promised me in his lyrics.
But his assurances couldn’t change the past, and the infamous mafia blood in my veins guarantees my heart can’t be claimed.

Somewhere along the way, I slipped. I let myself believe we could have it all. Now a dark, menacing shadow hovers between us, mocking us for daring to hope for a normal future.

And it’s come to collect on a blood oath.

My name’s Elizabeth Borello—Libby for short. Don’t worry about forgetting it… He hasn’t.

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo

I adore Molly McAdams and everything she writes. Well, except that one thing, but she’s more than redeemed herself since then. Lyric was a beautiful love story. I fell in love with Maxon from the moment I met him, and his unwavering devotion to Libby through all her ups and downs was EVERYTHING.

Lyric drew me in from the second I started reading it. I was enamored with Libby and Maxon’s dynamic and had to know how they’d come to the place they were when the book started. They both seemed so broken and confused by what had happened between them; I knew their history and the events leading to their devastation had to be fascinating.

Libby and Maxon were far from perfect. They were beautifully flawed, and when they were together, those flaws only served to make their connection more poignant. The forces that kept them apart – from his music to her family and beyond – were no match for the soul-deep bond they had. My heart bled for them when they struggled to commit to one another entirely. Those moments when they were together and fully engaged in each other with no thought to the outside world? Sublime.

The build-up in Lyric was intense. All the conjecture and subterfuge, never knowing exactly who was involved or why. Questioning the motivations of each and every person Libby came in contact with. It all added up to a highly charged, slow-burn suspense. I honestly didn’t even realize how tense I was each time Libby was alone until the book was almost over and I couldn’t relax my shoulders while Maxon was away for a few nights. It came on slowly, but it was done so well.

If there were anything I could ask of this novel, it would be to have had more of Maxon and Libby’s history. There was plenty there to understand their relationship and how much they loved one another, but I’m greedy, and I wanted more, so much more about them when they were kids.

Lyric is the first book in Molly McAdams’ Rebel series. This series is a spin-off from her Redemption series, but it’s not necessary to read those books first. They would give a better understanding of some of the side characters but don’t have much bearing on Maxon and Libby’s story. The Rebel series books are interconnected standalones. Lyric is primarily written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Maxon and Libby, with a few chapters thrown in from a mystery figure.

Molly McAdams is a wordsmith. She has an uncanny ability to make her readers fall in love with her characters from the very second they appear on page. Her stories are captivating and emotional, and always leave me wanting more of them, in any way I can get them.

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm … or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.

NEW RELEASE & GIVEAWAY!! Lyric by Molly McAdams

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams delivers the first captivating, stand-alone novel in her REDEMPTION series spin-off—the REBEL series . . .

I’m not the kind of girl you forget.
I wish I was.
I wish I was normal.
That I could blend into a crowd. Have a future with the man I’ve loved my entire life…

Maxon James understands me in a way others can’t.
For as long as I can remember, he’s vowed that one day he would claim my wild, rebel heart. God knows I wanted him to try. I wanted the life he promised me in his lyrics.
But his assurances couldn’t change the past, and the infamous mafia blood in my veins guarantees my heart can’t be claimed.

Somewhere along the way, I slipped. I let myself believe we could have it all. Now a dark, menacing shadow hovers between us, mocking us for daring to hope for a normal future.

And it’s come to collect on a blood oath.

My name’s Elizabeth Borello—Libby for short. Don’t worry about forgetting it… He hasn’t.

NEW RELEASE!! One Wild Night by AL Jackson & Rebecca Shea

A flirty, sexy contemporary romance from bestselling authors, A.L. Jackson and Rebecca Shea . . .

Kaylee Rose Burton, kindergarten teacher, has never been a believer in fantasies.

Living in L.A. her entire life, she knows the glitz and glam of Hollywood is just an illusion.

That is until she stumbles head first into the arms of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor.

It was just another day for Paxton Myles on the red carpet until the blue-eyed beauty literally stumbles at his feet.  

A single glimpse in her innocent eyes and he knows he has to have her.  

After one night of unbridled passion, Kaylee slips away to live her quite life, but the paparazzi has other ideas.

When Kaylee’s world comes crashing down, can Paxton convince her that their one wild night could turn into forever?

Amazon US | Signed Paperback

One Wild Night is a fun, light, quick read. In a huge step away from their usual fare, this book is light – but not completely devoid – of the heavy angst and deeply emotional themes we usually see from both of these authors. It was obvious as I was reading they had fun writing this book, the joy of the process shown through in the writing.

One Wild Night is the first book in a series of crossovers expected from AL Jackson and Rebecca Shea called the Hollywood Chronicles. They are purported to be a series of interconnected standalones, and I am so excited to see what is to come. One Wild Night is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Kaylee and Paxton.

This couple, Kaylee and Paxton had great chemistry. I’m a sucker for a celebrity falling for a ‘normal’ person, so this was right in my wheelhouse. Paxton was the highlight of the story, his persistence and the way he cared for Kaylee when she was so hesitant to pursue more than a single night with her celebrity crush endeared him to my heart.

The plot was fun and moved quickly. It wasn’t hugely revolutionary, but that is what makes these kinds of books, so fun to spend a few hours with on a lazy weekend. While this was a short read, it didn’t feel lacking in any way, sure it was insta-love, but it totally worked for this book. I appreciated that Ms. Jackson and Ms. Shea still added a sprinkling of angst and emotion into this book, it kept One Wild Night from feeling too light to have come from such heavy hitters.

I love that two of my favorite authors, AL Jackson and Rebecca Shea, came together to collaborate on this novel and series. I always love both of their books and getting a little of each of them in one place is a dream come true. I do hope that eventually, they write something heavier because I can only imagine how deeply they could destroy me if they minds to it.

A.L. Jackson is the New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance. She writes emotional, sexy, heart-filled stories about boys who usually like to be a little bit bad.
