Release Blitz + ARC Review: ‘Never Look Back’ by A.L. Jackson

Never Look Back
An Enemies-to-Lovers, Close-Proximity, Second-Chance Romance from A.L. Jackson
Available Now on Amazon and Free with Kindle Unlimited!


From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes an enemies-to-lovers, close-proximity, second-chance romance…

Logan Lawson won me in a bet.
The second I saw him sitting at the illegal card table, I knew I was in trouble.
Years ago, he sealed my fate and condemned me to a life I didn’t want to lead.
Yet he’s filled with untamed fury and thirsting for vengeance against the husband I hate.

Aster Costa is everything I never should have wanted.
The second she showed with her pompous, prick of a husband, I should have gotten up and walked.
But there’s no looking away from the woman who wrecked me.
Worse, I can’t stop myself from plotting to get her back.

I want nothing more than to be free of my husband.
I’m afraid Logan Lawson is the only one who can make that happen.
He might hate me for our past, but now it’s me on my knees begging for help.

Finding each other in the middle of it wasn’t supposed to be part of the bargain.
But once Logan touches me, I’m gone.
A torch is rekindled. A fire is lit.

Aster Costa has always been mine.
And this time, no matter the cost, I won’t give her back…

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

Feels so good to be back in Redemption Hills! A.L. Jackson has created a book world I literally don’t want to leave. I completely fell in love with her writing after reading the first in the series and she continues surprising us with the next installments. Now it’s time for Logan to find his happy ever after but it’s not as easy as his personality portrays to be (flirty and fun), this book and story has so many layers and you don’t want to miss any of them.

So, Never Look Back is the third installment in Jackson’s Redemption Hills series and, as I said, it’s the story of the youngest Lawson brother, Logan. It happens to be a second chance / enemies-to-lovers (kind of) romance so I was all over it! Logan is a player and a man who knows how to deal with money investments. He is in an illegal card table when he reunites with the only woman he ever loved (and the one who broke his heart years ago), Aster Costa. But nothing is as it seems, and both will start to realize it when Logan wins Aster in a bet and they are “forced” to spend time together. Is it now their time to be happy?

“Why are you here, Aster?” Logan’s voice was gravel. “Why did you come back to me?”
“I don’t know if I could have ended up anywhere else.”

I do love a good second chance romance and A.L. Jackson doesn’t disappoint with Never Look Back. This series and Jackson’s writing just work for me in so many ways. Yes, the style is almost poetic, but I am a romantic at heart and I really enjoy that! Logan and Aster’s journey is not all hearts and flowers, they have to relive the past and it’s not easy for them. Both feel betrayed by the other and Aster also happens to be in a marriage that was arranged by her powerful father. But soon this couple starts to realize that what happened years before was not what they thought, and sparks start flying from the very moment they set eyes on each other again. I really enjoyed reading the journey of this couple, how they evolve after what happened and how their chemistry is impossible to stop. Yes, I do have to say the slow burn was quite slow at times (lol), but the pages were steaming with the intense connection between these two and I really enjoyed reading their journey back to one another.

“Even if I can’t see you, I’ll know you’re there, and I’ll find my way to you.”
“And there is no place my heart won’t find you. My North Star.”

Therefore, I am rating Never Look Back with 4.5 STARS because it gave Logan and Aster the second chance they deserved. I am so happy this couple finally found happiness, especially after so much hurt takes place because of their past. Of course, I was extremely happy to go back to this world and keep up with the rest of the couples and characters in the series. Tessa’s book is next, and I cannot wait to read this sassy woman’s love story. I hope the author has more stories ready for this series because I don’t want to say goodbye yet!
