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?
AL Jackson truly has a way with words and has yet again delivered a brilliant book!
Jared and Aleena were childhood friends or should I say Jared and Aly's brother Christopher were friends and Aly always tagged along?! Either way, Jared always looked out for Aly. They had a close friendship until a tragic turn of events changed everything and Jared leaves town. Now he's back, years later and while Aly is still carrying a torch for him, he's battling demons that have tortured him for far too long.
As Jared and Aly reconnect and explore their grown up relationship, we get flashbacks of their childhood and the story of what happened that changed their world. It is truly heartbreaking and very emotional.
If you haven't read any of Ms Jackson's books then you are missing out. I'm excited for more from this series as well!

She first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student. She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life.
Years later, she shared a short story she’d been working on with her two closest friends and, with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel. A.L. now spends her days writing in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three children.
