A second-chance, small town, stand-alone romance in A.L. Jackson’s Confessions of the Heart Series.
“I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Jace and Faith’s story. Seriously, the BEST story! 5++++ Stars!”
Love’s not about right or wrong, just like grief isn’t about counting days. Love is about being given a gift. Sometimes when we least expect it. Usually when we need it most.
Let me begin by saying, it’s really hard to not love A.L. Jackson. She knows how to write one heck of a story filled with emotions. This book is no exception. She engaged ALL of my emotions! I was angry, sad, and happy! This is another all-time favorite and top favorite in second chance romance for me.
Faith and Jace thought they had it all. They felt like there was no obstacle they couldn’t overcome even if they came from two different worlds, but that was not to be for them at the time. Life and outside forces tore them apart. Now, Jace is back and determined to protect the woman he loves and her child. Buckle up….this is one heck of a ride!!!!
As you can well imagine, Faith isn’t too happy to have Jace back in town. However, she can’t just forget all that the two of them shared. I loved the way Jackson took me back in time when Faith fell in love with Jace, the boy from the wrong side of the tracks.
But that troubled boy was my shining star. He’d taught me to have faith that people were so much more than their exteriors and their reputations. Made me have faith that destinies weren’t based on our circumstances but rather what we made of them.
Faith was a woman I couldn’t help but admire, love, and respect. She had her heart ripped out by Jace, then she suffered the loss of her husband, Joseph. Now, she was a single mother with a dream she wasn’t sure she could realize, and she was afraid for herself and Bailey Button. She was juggling grief, worry, and fear, all while “standing on her two own feet.” However, she never gave in. There was a love still burning for Jace, but her heart and soul belonged completely to her daughter. She would do anything to make sure she was safe. How could I not love her?
Jace was a character I fell for as well. Like, Faith, I couldn’t help but admire and respect him as well. He was loyal, protective, and forgiving. He always put his family first, often to the detriment of himself. He wanted them to be different than how they were raised. He could have harbored resentment towards Bailey, yet he fell heart and soul for that precious little girl, and in not time, she had him wrapped her little finger!
Jackson also created a great set of secondary characters, such as Ian, Mack, Courtney, and our sweet little “Button.” Every time Bailey was on the scene, my heart melted for the precious child.
As much as this was a romance, Jackson expertly combined it with mystery and thrills. She continued adding more little hints here and there of who was terrorizing Faith and why. As always, her book was well-written, and each setting was described in a way that I was right there in the story myself.
I highly recommend reading this little gem of a book by A.L. Jackson. Just be warned….you won’t do anything else until the very last page is finished. But then, those are the very best books to read, aren’t they?
I hope you love Jace and Faith as much as I do. I’m so proud of this story, and am so thrilled to release it out into the world!
