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!!!

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

My heart has always been hung on hope.

My feels. Oh my poor feels. This book tugged at absolutely every single heartstring I had. I sobbed my way through almost half of it. Follow Me Back was a beautifully written, gripping and highly emotional romance that was full of swoons and impossible to put down.
He looked like discord.
Chaos with an easy, arrogant smile.
A perfect, controlled disorder.

“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 me to pu

In AL Jackson’s newest standalone in her Fight For Me series, Kale and Hope find each other when they least expected it. Neither is fully whole. Both are fighting battles that no one else can see. And yet these two have a passionate connection that neither can deny for very long. Told in her beautiful prose, Ms. Jackson swept me away to her small town world and captured my attention in this emotional romance.

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.

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

Kane is a paediatric doctor but he’s also a broken man if there ever was. He lives for his patients, his family and he enjoys women when he gets the chance but really he doesn’t get close. That is until he bumps into Hope on a night out and just can’t get her out of his head.

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.

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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,
