“She was the kind of beauty that you couldn’t look away from. The kind that you got stuck on, wondering if you stared long enough, you could figure out if it was real.”
“My entire life had been nothing but a string of hurdles. No finish line in sight. Except for Izzy. She’d been my beginning. The girl had breathed her beauty and grace and goodness into my being. Made me think I could be something better. Saw me in a way I’d never seen myself.”
“He took a step forward, and I swore, I could feel the planets shift their orbit. Or maybe they’d shifted the second I’d crossed state lines. Our destinies had always felt dependent on the other, though I’d never imagined it’d twist our paths up quite like this. We had come alive in the other. A million mismatched pieces strewn between us that had magically fit.”
“There’s never been a single day in my life when I didn’t want you. We are endless.”
To me, there is nothing better then seeing a new book from A.L. Jackson hitting my kindle. I know right away that I am about to go on an amazing, incredible, beautiful journey. I know that the ride is going to play with my emotions and leaving hanging on every word. I know that every moment will pull at my heart and leave me aching for more. And Pieces of Us is the latest book by this author to capture my heart and find its way into my soul…
Pieces of Us is a beautifully written and all consuming second chance romance. It is the most epic kind of love story. It’s the kind of story that grabs you from the first page and that will have you hanging on every word. From the moment you meet the characters you are totally swept up in their story and you might as well cancel all of your plans for the day. You won’t want to put their story down and you’ll be dying to see just how their story will play out.
Maxson & Izzy’s road to happily ever after is not an easy one. It’s filled with pain and heartache. Maxon and Izzy will be tested in ways neither one of them ever expected. There is so much for them to move past and so much more to lose this time around. But, the love these two share is real and true and is the kind that’s worth fighting for. Sure both of them made mistakes and Maxon definitely had some demons plaguing him. But, if any couple deserved a second chance at love, it was these two. They fell in love at a young age and had a friendship that many could only wish for. I loved watching these two navigate their way through the past and journey towards their future.
Pieces of Us is the kind of story that just sweeps you up and knocks you off of your feet. It is a story of second chances and love. A story of forgiveness and moving on. Of accepting your faults and opening your heart. A story of taking chances and believing in yourself. A story that just captures you heart and leaves you begging for more. A story of just how complex and tough love can be. How it it can put you through the ringer and test you in ways you never saw coming. It can break you, yet make you even stronger because in the end, true love is always worth the pain, the fight, the heartache…
I loved every moment of this story from beginning to end. Maxon & Izzy stole my heart and took my emotions on a ride that I won’t be forgetting any time soon. A.L. Jackson has once again delivered a heartfelt and emotional romance that will stand the test of time….
