TBT#5 - Review: Come to Me Softly by A.L. Jackson

On this week of #ThrowbackThrusday I bring to you an emotional story of broken man (Jared Holt) consumed by an enormous guilt for ruining his family and his journey towards forgiving himself, accepting and moving on all because of an beautiful angel (Aleena Moore) in his life, who loved him ever since they were kids.

Title: Come to Me Softly
Author: A.L. Jackson
Series:Closer to you #2
Genre: new adult, contemporary romace

From the New York Times bestselling author of Come to Me Quietly comes a scorching new adult romance in the Closer to You series.

A second chance at life...
A second chance at love...

Jared Holt never thought he deserved either—until he found both in the arms of Aly Moore. Aly has loved Jared for as long as she can remember, and she’s more than ready for the future they’re making together. But Jared can’t help remembering his own family. And he’ll never forgive himself for what happened to them. How can he allow himself the very happiness he once destroyed?

To live a life worthy of Aly, Jared knows he has to stop running and finally put his past to rest. But when he decides to face his demons head on, he encounters more than he bargained for: a dangerous mix of jealousy, lies, and dishonest intentions. When those intentions threaten Aly, Jared loses all control, giving into the rage that earned him his bad boy reputation years before. And he’ll fight to protect her no matter what it costs…even if he destroys himself in the process

Come to Me Softly by A.L. Jackson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

***3.5 stars***

Emotional, Intense and beautiful Love story...

Come to Me Softly is Jared’s path to Redemption, Forgiveness, Peace and Acceptance.

The story is kind of predictable as we know Aleena and Jared reunite at the end of Come to me quietly, this sequel is about their struggling future together. Jared is still broken, filled with hatred and disgust, harbors demons of his past and still thinks he unworthy of love that he doesn't deserve beautiful soul like Aly. But only thing keeping him sane is Aly. Aly on other hand wants to help Jared, sees him running from his past, she knows he thinks he doesn’t deserve to be loved as he works hard to keep her happy, protects her and always promising to love her immensely.


“I knew every second where I belonged. Nothing in this world is right unless I’m here with you.” 
I loved the story but not as much as its prequel. Their thoughts were repetitive most of the time. First half was slow it was really not going anywhere, nevertheless dialogues were romantic and the way A.L Jackson writes their feelings and their intimate scene it’s just breath taking.
