I don’t know if any review I write is enough to express the emotions entangling me from FOLLOW ME BACK, this story I LOVE more than I can ever pen to words. When I finished this novel, I didn’t want to review it: I wanted to REREAD IT. I read this tale with tears embedded in my eyes the whole time. I went to bed dreaming of this heartbreaking and heartwarming tale. I’m still BREATHLESS from this book. I’m just so SMITTEN with and HEART-STRUCK by this story!!!

My heart has always been hung on hope.

Chaos with an easy, arrogant smile.

Guilt! Sacrifice! Fear! vs. Hope!

How do you move on with your life when you feel you have absolutely no right to do so? You know you made a huge mistake, so you should pay for it for the rest of your life, right?

That is how has “panty dropping,” Dr. Kale Bryant has felt for the past decade. Well, that is until the most stunning woman he has ever laid eyes on enters the bar he likes to frequent. Her name is Hope, and that is what she gives him .... hope. Hope for a future he decided a long time a

“Even hope needs a hero…”

Whilst I really did enjoy Show Me the Way, book 1 in the Fight for Me series, that is nothing compared to how I feel about Follow Me Back. I am a massive sucker for highly emotional romances that have the ability to make me feel everything from the highest of highs, to the lowest of lows, a total rollercoaster. I can happily confirm that this was absolutely achieved. A. L. Jackson has beautifully written a highly addictive story that was near impossible for

A.L. Jackson never disappoints! Follow Me Back is heartbreaking, uplifting, with twists you don’t see coming and a hero dripping with swoon. It’s truly a fantastic read!

Follow Me Back is the second book in the Fight for Me series. Amy has picked such a great title for the series because in each book the characters are fighting demons inside and out. In this book we have Kale, who still lives in the past and doesn't want to love again. Hope, hasn't had an easy life as well, is still struggling and has put her life on hold. The moment these two meet the sparks fly and they feel a very strong attraction to

Wow! And when the book just make you fascinated in the prologue? Already in the first lines we are hooked up to it and this is simply the best type of reading: the one that begins and continues to be good till the end. I have nothing to complain about this. It was a wonderful reading! There is a story that moves us. You can't help but be emocional by everything that happens. I enjoyed the story of Rex (from SHOW ME THE WAY), but Kale's story became my favorite so far.

Welcome back to Gingham Lakes, where the men are hot and their women are a force to be reckoned with...

It’s right there, in Gingham Lakes, where Dr. Kale Bryant resides, unwavering in his resolve to make a difference. And just a short distance from where he practices, A Drop of Hope owner—Harley Hope Masterson—serves up coffee with a side of sweet optimism and feisty determination.

Enjoyed Follow me Back much more than I did the first book in the series but oh man, the constant push and pull started to wear on me. Less of that would've made for a much more enjoyable and tighter read instead of going over and over that he couldn't let her in (I'm thinking he was a bit of a wet). If I'm honest that got on my wick a bit because he was still dithering about her past the 80% mark. He seriously needed to either walk away and stay away or grow a pair, instead he jerked her and he ...more

3 Kale and Hope Stars

I think A.L.Jackson writes brilliant heroines and children. I loved Rynna and Frankie in the earlier book and this novel introduces Harley Hope Masterson and her gorgeous little 8 yr old boy Evan. Hope is the woman who catches the eye of the handsome Doctor Kale Bryant - close friend of Rex Gunner in the previous book.

I enjoyed watching their relationship develop and seeing the eternal bachelor fall for the beautiful Ms Masterson and her little boy. I thought the drama was

Long. Way too long for a simple story like this. This book like the previous one is a feast of poetic, dramatic words of Miss Jackson. Dramatic, poetic, ballads words that is all about this book. It is sadly not accompany by solid story. Oh and it is too cheesy for my taste.

I have hit and miss with Miss Jackson's works. Sometimes I do enjoy it, sometimes I can not find anything that I like. I want more solid story. More twist and plot. More complicated characters. I am struggle to finish this b

Everyone told me Follow Me Back was a gut-wrenching tearjerker, but it just didn’t move me the way it evidently did others. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it, because I did.

Without a doubt, the strongest aspect of this story is Hope with her fierce devotion and faith. Kale is a dedicated doctor and cocky devout bachelor. Let’s just pause right here to reflect on this character’s name. Kale. For real? Who names their child after a leafy green vegetable? Either a health freak, a sadist,

Beautiful, emotional, gut-wrenching, sexy as hell... It's classic A.L. Jackson with the lyrical writing and all the angst and longing for more.

I loved Hope with her devotion to her son fighting with her desire for Dr. Bryant, and Dr. Kale Bryant (aka, Cowboy, Knight, Sex on a stick) is one luscious, damaged, sexy man ready to be their hero.

I devoured this gorgeous book. Don't miss it--a five-star, must-read!

Fairytales come in many forms, and in FOLLOW ME BACK, A.L.

AL Jackson has been one of my favorite authors for some time, and this book just proves to me why, and cements the fact she won’t be dropping from that spot any time soon.

After reading the first book in this series, I was left wondering about Kale Bryant and wanting to know more about him. He seemed this cocky man, always ready with a wide smile. And he was. He lived his life for his job and his friends who became his family, finding comfort in one bed or another when the need arose. That is, u

Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Completely and utterly perfect. A.L. Jackson is the queen of pulling on my heartstrings and making me melt where I stand.

All of these characters, every single one (well, except for the antagonist. I wanted to throat punch him several times) is so worthy of happiness. Kale with his big heart and exceptional spirit and Hope with her endless capacity to sacrifice and love, are both so deserving of the HEA they wor

I have always loved the way that A.L Jackson writes. Her stories are real, emotional, and angsty! I enjoy the build up, the simmer, the burn that she makes her readers feel. This one was no different. I am a total sucker for damaged characters. I feel their anguish and pain, it makes it more realistic to me.

I was instantly intrigued by Kale Bryant when we met him in Show Me The Way. He piqued my interest, to say the least. He is passionate about his job, friends, and generally just helping other

OMG! OMG! In my opinion – Follow me back is the best work of AL Jackson and I love all her books so that says something about this masterpiece. I have a soft spot for doctor heroes and you guys, Kale is the best kind. Kale is a gorgeous ER physician who is married to his job. He does not do relationships or love but he hasn’t always been this way. An event in the past changed his life forever and not in a good way.

Dr. Kale Bryant is a man who is living for his friends and his patients, but not really for himself. His past had made him shut down his heart and believe he is not worthy of love. He comes off as cocky, confident, intense and dominant, but hides his damaged vulnerable core. But he is also kind, caring, and has a big heart. However he does not get attached to women or have relationships.

Fight For Me the second title in the Fight For Me series, is a beautiful, powerful, heartbreaking, emotional, intense and moving love story.

I was incredibly eager to read Kale Bryant's story after he was introduced in the previous titles. A.L. Jackson has crafted a pair of characters that are incredibly endearing. Kale is kind, caring and sweet, but very reluctant to believe in love or commit to a relationship of any kind. The façade Kale presents is one of a put together charismatic,

I found it interesting that though the characters were different, this book followed a lot of the same tropes from the first book, but with a gender swap. I still enjoyed the book and I’m most excited for the third book, but I just found this interesting.

Happy reading!

AL Jackson has set the bar high for herself. Sweet emotional words fan effortlessly across the pages.
Endearing, bittersweet. To this day I’ve yet to have an author tug at my soul the way she does.
Follow Me Back is a gripping story of how deep unconditional love can be.
