BOOK REVIEW: More of You by A.L. Jackson

image1My 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 . . .

Melanie’s 5-Star Review:

A.L. Jackson’s latest release, More of You is a profound love story that proves soulmates really do exist. That even time and dire circumstances aren’t enough to distinguish true love. There was an onslaught of crazy emotions that took hold of me from the get go. A clawing desperation of the feels, Jace and Faith will have you rooting for them from start to finish. With her signature style completely intact, Ms. Jackson adds on the element of suspense in this book showcasing just how versatile she is. I thought she did an exceptional job tying all the loose ends together without it ever feeling rushed or unfinished. Every part of this story had a role, had a motive,  and its own purpose. This was wonderfully written—something I have come to expect time after time from this author.

First loves and second chance romances are my kryptonite. It evokes something so powerful inside of me, something I can’t quite put into words. More of You is both of these so you can only imagine how much my heart felt every single emotion. And with A.L. Jackson at the wheel, those emotions were magnified tenfold. I love, love the way she delivers her characters’ words and their feelings—there is really nothing like it, no one like her. Lyrical and poetic. So absolutely potent, her words never fail to bring tears to my eyes. A sledgehammer to my literary heart. I found myself lost in the pages, wrapped up in every single word.

Faith is a wonderful heroine. Strong in a quiet way and one who loves with all her might. You can’t help but love her from the very first moment. There’s this alluring fragility about her that draws you in. Makes you want to give up anything to give her the happy ending she deserves. And our hero, Jace Jacobs does exactly that. A boy born into a cruel life – protective, kind, and unbelievably selfless. Used to putting his younger brother and cousin ahead of himself, he always gets the short end of the stick. Meeting Faith was an ultimate gift to him. Life changing for not only Jace but also for her. Beauty and her Beast. The perfect combination amidst the stark differences in their lifestyle. How easy it was for them to fall in love for one another even with all the ugliness that surrounded them. The fear of his reputation tainting hers. The unsureness of what sort of future he could provide for her—so much ugliness surrounding such a magical love affair. It wasn’t long before all that ugliness that had slowly crept around them finally takes root, separating them for ten whole years. Leading them into very different lives—Jace making a name for himself in Atlanta. The business mogul who rose from the ashes while Faith remains stuck in their old hometown married to the very devil himself. Her life though filled with the love of her adorable daughter Bailey, it is filled with lies and deceit. Crime and murder.

When the threats become all too real, Jace finds himself back where he left Faith behind. His determination to protect her and Bailey—unwavering much like his love for Faith. The sexual tension between them left me unbearably breathless. Holy smokes, their chemistry! Off the flippin’ charts!!! Once they give into their desires, it was a loose cannon. Wild, wild love. Oh man, I loved every bit of it. And let me just say, the level of adorableness that is Bailey had me smiling from ear to ear. She was easy to love and the relationship that forms between her and Jace will make your ovaries burst.

I absolutely loved, More of You. I didn’t know how much I needed an A.L. Jackson read until I got to page 2 of this book. If you’re looking for an awesome romantic read – one that will make your heart burst with both agony and joy then this one is it.
