Come To Me Quietly by A.L. Jackson - Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway

From the acclaimed bestselling author of Lost to You and When We Collide comes a new adult novel of one woman’s obsession: a man who’s as passionate as he is elusive—and as tempting as he is trouble.…

Aleena Moore is haunted by Jared Holt. It’s been six years since she’s seen her brother’s best friend, the self-destructive bad boy she secretly loved in high school. As the years pass, she knows it’s time to move on. Time to decide between a practical nursing degree and her true dream as an artist. Time to get over Jared and give another guy a chance…

Just when she opens her heart to her friend Gabe, Aly returns home to find Jared sleeping on her couch. The teenage boy she loved has grown into a man she can’t resist. Covered in tattoos and lost in rage, he’s begging to be saved from his demons—the memories of the day he destroyed his family. As the two reconnect, their passion is hot enough to torch Aly’s judgment. But can she risk her future for a man who lives on the edge of destruction?

It’s beautiful. It’s beautiful. It’s beautiful.

AL Jackson has once again wowed her readers in another masterpiece of its kind. It’s a story of a broken man who is heavily scarred by his past, and a woman who have loved him ever since.

Aleena Moore had loved Jared Holt ever since they were younger. She wasn’t into relationships because she had already secretly given him her heart. But it has been six years had passed since he had seen him. The boy, who had always protected her, saved her and included her turned out to be self-destructive after a tragedy that changed not just his life but her life as well. She knew she needed to move on, forget about him and give other guys a chance…

But just as when she thought she was ready to move on, she found Jared sleeping on their couch. He was a handsome boy when he was a teenager, but age grew kind of him. He was dangerously irresistible now. He’s covered in tattoos, still angry and the demons of his past is still surrounding him. He tried to stay away from Aly, she was the good thing he didn’t deserve. But as they spend more and more time with each other, their closeness was once again regained. As their closeness begins to shift into something more intense and more powerful, Jared tries to fight it off. Aly on the other hand will do everything to make him stay. She had already lost him years ago, she can’t lose him now.

It had touched me, made me cry, and had me falling for this sweet, wounded warrior that has too much to carry on his shoulders. At first, I had always wondered what made him destroy himself… Why does he allow pain and suffering to freely rein his heart? Why can’t he allow Aly in? As the story goes and the truth starts to unfold, I just wanted to held Jared close and comfort him. Although I just wished he had allowed people who cared about him most to help him with his burdens.  I have loved Aly so much – her love for him is totally unconditional. She would do everything for him. I was hoping Jared would come into his senses before Aly gives up on him.
A must read, a page-turner, a tear jerker.  A story of loss, hope and love, Come To Me Quietly is filled with emotions from the beginning until the final page.
