From the New York Times bestselling author of Come to Me Softly comes
another irresistible new adult romance in the Closer to You series.
His heart was turned off…Until she turned him on….Christopher Moore gave up on the idea of love years ago. Now, his life is an endless string of parties and an even longer string of girls. Enjoying the physical perks with none of the emotional mess, he’s convinced everyone that he’s satisfied—everyone but himself. Samantha Schultz has moved on with her life. Finishing her student teaching and living with her boyfriend, she’s deluded herself into believing she’s content. But there is one boy she never forgot—her first love—and she keeps the memory of him locked up tight. She will never allow any man to break her the way Christopher did. When Christopher’s sister and her family move into a new neighborhood, Christopher is completely unprepared to find Samantha living at the end of the street. Memories and unspent desires put them on collision course of sex, lies, and lust. But when guilt and fear send Samantha running, Christopher will have to fight for what has always been his.
Then I turned and rushed to the sliding glass door. I went to duck inside, when my path was obstructed by an imposing figure at the doorway, the man a full foot taller than my five foot four. I didn’t want to look up, but I couldn’t stop myself from being drawn, and his warm breath washed over my face.
Chills cascaded in a dizzying wave down my spine, before the venom in his voice lifted the hairs at the nape of my neck, the words cold and deathly quiet. “What the fuck do you think you’re doing here?”
Lost in the searing anger blazing in his green eyes, I stammered for an answer. “I…I…”
I swallowed hard and he leaned in closer, his nose brushing mine, and I was suddenly drowning in everything Christopher Moore—the way he smelled, clean, like a breath of the morning’s freshest air, but still something else entirely intoxicating, like sex and lust and everything I’d ever wanted but knew I shouldn’t have.
My thoughts went fuzzy as I got lost in it, before that wicked voice snapped me back. “Stay away from my family.” Like a caress, he trailed his finger along the line of my jaw, lifting a line of goose bumps in its wake; before he hooked it under my chin, bringing his mouth a centimeter from mine.
There was no stopping the way my lips parted on instinct, as if they’d forever been waiting for his. His heat spread across my face, and I felt myself leaning forward.
“And stay the fuck away from me.”
Stunned, I stared, my mouth gaping open with offended shock and my body reeling from the need he’d spun up in me.
Once again the magic of A.L. Jackson’s writing has moved and captured my heart. Come to Me Recklessly was more than I could have imagined. It is by far my favorite in this series. If you thought Aly and Jared’s story was sad, hold on tight, because you’re about to take the most heart wrenching emotional ride of your life. A.L. is brilliant in the way she can write words on paper that tell such a heartbreaking story of love, loss, grief and redemption. Samantha and Christopher’s journey is one that I’ll never forget.
You need to read this for yourself to grasp the depth of Samantha and Christopher. This book is a perfect example of how A.L. Jackson can rope you in to her story with her profound storytelling abilities. This book had me on the edge of my seat, furiously taping the screen on my Kindle. Wishing that I was a faster reader because the suspense of what was going to happen pained me. Through her writing I felt all the heartache that Christopher and Samantha felt. At one point I sobbed, my heart breaking for all of the characters.
I loved this book with all my heart and recommend this series to anyone. If you have not experienced the beautiful writing of A.L. Jackson you’re missing out.
