“Every time I looked at him, it twisted something deep inside me. My love for him was bigger-more important-than anything else in my small, little world.”
Every time I pick up a new A. L. Jackson story I know I am in for something incredibly special; an unforgettable tale that will bring on all the feels, have me in tears at some point during the journey and leave me always anticipating her next adventure. More of You was definitely a story driven by deep seated emotion; a beautiful and captivating journey of second chances and a love so powerful, you feel it right down to your very core. I am a massive sucker for second chance love stories; I thrive on the angst, the anticipation and the fact that love and forgiveness always wins out over hate and revenge. They always say the ones you love the most are always the ones that hurt you the most and I do believe that to be true.
Faith has always loved Jace and nothing in this world could even come close to how special he was to her. It was the kind of love that sent butterflies fluttering through her stomach and a fire burning throughout her body. The connection was so strong, so intense and so real. He was her love, her life and her whole universe. She envisioned a future together that would last forever and nothing could have prepared Faith for the day Jace shattered her heart and left her to pick up the pieces.
“…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.”
Fast forward ten years and Faith has been to hell and back. The things she has seen and as a result has had to endure, no one ever should have to go through in their life-time. If it were not for her sweet little girl Bailey, she may not have ever found the strength to go on. Bailey is her life, her reason to wake up every morning and her faith that everything could possibly be ok. To make Faith’s circumstances even worse, she now fears for her safety and that of her daughter due to a threatening turn of events.
“You don’t get to be sorry for me, Jace. You have no idea what I’ve been through. What I’m goin’ through. Just…go back to where you came from. Go home.”
“I am home.”
Jace has always been the pariah of the town, the outcast, the rebel and the no hoper. The only shining star in his dark world was Faith. She always saw beyond what everyone else did; saw beyond the tattered clothes and rough exterior to what really mattered, what was inside his heart and soul. Ten years ago, Jace had to make the toughest decision of his life… to leave town and to never return. He never thought he was good enough for Faith and felt she deserved so much more than he could ever offer her.
Ten years on and Jace is now back in the small town he swore he would never return to. Jace is now successful, sophisticated and decked out in expensive tailored suits. He has become the man Faith always knew he could be and to her he is even more beautiful than ever. He is back for one thing and one thing only… Faith. He had heard of all the devastating events that had occurred and all the pain and suffering Faith has been through. He will stop at nothing in order to protect Faith and the timeless love Jace felt for Faith ten years ago is still there, stronger than ever. Will Faith forgive Jace for shattering her heart all those years ago and will they make it a second time around?
“You are love, Faith. You are my heart. You are my beauty. My world doesn’t know how to exist without you.”
Faith and Jace were the true epitome of soul mates. They had the kind of intense all-consuming love that people search their whole lives for, yet never find. Two tortured souls whose hearts beat as one, destined to be together and fate was never going to stop a powerful love like theirs soar.

Jackson’s writing was like pure poetry, it flowed so effortlessly from page to page that I just drank in every beautifully written word.

If you are a fan of second chances love stories that you just can’t put down, then you should definitely one click More of You.
