From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes a close proximity, single-parent stand-alone romance about a woman on the run and the man who will do anything to save her…

Jud Lawson found me stranded in the rain.
Broken down on the side of the road in a deserted neighborhood with my piece of crap car.
I wasn’t looking for a hero, and definitely not one who looks like him.
An obscenely hot, mountain-of-a-man who screams danger.
But I have little choice other than climbing onto the back of his bike.

One look at Salem Aguilar, and I’m hooked.
The girl is devastation wrapped in a black, seductive bow.
A knockout.
A dream.
Turns out, she needs a job, and I need the help.
Now I have a vixen strutting around my shop, and I’m the fool who’s itching to reach out and take what he can’t have.
But neither of us can ignore the burning attraction.
The fire that leads to a kiss.
A kiss that has us falling into my bed.
The connection that has me wanting the one thing I’d never thought I could have again.
Because monsters like me don’t deserve love.

Only Salem has a secret, too.
She’s been running for years, and her past just caught up to us…

5 ‘Black-fuckin’-magic’ Stars!

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I had the pleasure of reading my first full length book by A.L. Jackson at the end of last year. A few chapters into Give Me a Reason, I knew she would become one of my auto-buy authors and I was not mistaken. I was lucky enough to receive an early copy of the second book in the series and it was PERFECTION from start to finish. Just as good as the first one and it made me fall in love all over again with this beautiful crew of characters. You are simply not ready for Jud and Salem and their intense chemistry!

So, as I mentioned, Say It’s Forever is the second installment in Jackson’s Redemption Hills series and it’s a closed proximity / single-parent romance. We met the Lawson brothers in the first one and now it’s time for Jud to have his happy ending. Enter Salem Aguilar and the cutest girl ever Juniper a.k.a. Juni-bee. Salem and her child need a new life, they’ve been hiding for a long time and it finally seems this is their place. Salem starts working for Jud and sparks start flying. Both broken by the past, they try to ignore their connection but it’s basically impossible. Is love enough to keep Salem from running again? Is love enough to heal Jud’s heartbreaking past?

I wanted her in a way that wasn’t right. In a way that slanted dangerous. In a way that was at odds with every damned thing I’d been living for.

I am seriously amazed. I knew this author would likely do a very good job following the first installment, but I got even more of what I was expecting. Say It’s Forever surely follows a different theme / troupe but it’s just as amazing as Give Me a Reason. This love story is so beautiful, so emotional, so sexy and oh-so-heartbreaking. Jud and Salem are not ready for the intense connection they feel for one another. They are still facing demons from their pasts and it’s not easy for either of them to open up. But that spark is stronger than they are. And with the help of an adorable cutie and a family that loves them both, it’s impossible not to act on their feelings. And when that happens? PURE FIRE. The chemistry between this couple burns the pages and it gets even better when they accept their fate. After so much hurt and secrets, Jud and Salem (and their families) can finally enjoy their relationship and their much-deserved happiness.

“I never expected you… to find someone who would make me dream beyond the hope of only surviving.”

Therefore, I am rating Say It’s Forever with 5 STARS because this book made me fall in love with these characters all over again. I love the Lawson brothers and their interactions as a family and, of course, I loved the new additions to the series. Salem and Juni-bee are so adorable, and I am so glad they melted Jud’s heart with their love. This love story is brilliant from start to finish and this crew of characters will definitely steal your heart. I cannot wait to read more of this series, and I am so excited Logan’s story is next!
