My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs...

The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble.
A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder.
My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior.
I fell hard and fast.
He promised we’d be together forever, and then le

A.L. Jackson has an exceptional talent! There’s never been any of her books that didn’t completely amaze me! With every single novel, she creates a universe with the perfect balance of lyrical prose and breathtaking emotions! More of You, the first installment in her Confessions of the Heart Series is another wonderful gem with new engaging protagonists, a very suspenseful atmosphere and heart-gripping feelings! This is a story of second chance, but also discovery, re

"But it was the wounds inflicted that couldn't be seen that always scarred the worst.

I've read thousands of books, but on my favorites shelf, there are only hundreds. This is one of those. More of You made a lasting impression, touching my heart and searing my soul. For someone who writes so many reviews, it's not often that I struggle for words. However; I want to do this one justice, and get across to you how very much I love this story. I want you to want to read it because it deserves

“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.

When you begin and end a book in tears, you know it’s one that spoke to your soul. More of You by AL Jackson spoke to my soul. Sang to my soul. Shattered my soul. Slayed my soul. This story was my soul. So STUNNING! I LOVED IT!!! Second chance romances are my weakness, and More of You was my KRYPTONITE. PURE ROMANCE GOLD.

More of You is so much more than a romance. MORE of EVERYTHING. It’s poetry—dreamy lyrics that come to life. It’s a story of regret and

Favorite Quotes:

Pain radiated from him like the heat waves that held to the sticky, summer air.

Who said I wanted to hear all your dirty little secrets? You usually leave me feeling like I need to pour bleach into my ears.

I was pretty sure Faith’s mom swooned right there, while her father slit my throat with a metaphorical knife… I would have laughed if her father weren’t clearly stabbing me over and over in his mind.

‘I’ve never loved anyone the way I’ve loved him. He was a fire that consumed. A strike in the night.’

Gosh, where to start with this review? Faith and Jace fell in love in high school, she was the good girl who lived in a nice family home and had dreams of a happy ever after, hopefully with Jace. He was the boy from the ‘wrong wide of the tracks’ but he loved Faith with every breath he took. Family is also really important to Jace, protecting his brothers came above everything else, even his ow

Hauntingly beautiful, achingly sexy--this book has all the feels. Falling for Jace and Faith's love story and watching them learn to dream together again is such a beautiful journey, and the suspense angle keeps you clicking. Bailey Button is the icing on the cake. I want MORE of this series! I can't wait to learn about Ian and Mack!!!

Don't miss this FIVE-STAR MUST READ!!!!

This book! This man! Guys, yes, triple time over.
More Of You is everything and AL brings it.
I’m always such a giddy girl when she sends me a book. I devour it. Let it soak into my skin and savor her specialty of tugging my heart.
AL’s mind is brilliant and you are in for this author to bring you her best book to date.

Every review I’ve read seems to hate the heroine, why? Because she had the nerve to have a life with someone else, because she had the nerve to have a kid with her husband? The nerve of this woman. She should have stay frozen for the 10 years while hero dipped his stick in everything! She had every right to moved on, he broke up with her. Why did everyone expected her to be frozen? 🙄

I didn’t have a problem with her moving on. I actually applauded the woman! She fell in love with the husband and

A.L. Jackson did what she does best!! She’s wrote a beautiful story that tugged at my heartstrings like no other! It’s such a beautifully emotional story of love, loss, and redemption.

Here’s what I loved:
The writing. Oh my god!! This author’s writing is my kryptonite. Her prose is SO beautiful. I CANT GET ENOUGH! It’s descriptive and so full of emotion. She completely blows me after book.

The characters really AMAZING! Faith and Jace’s story is not all sunshine and daisies. It’s hard

This is not just a case of a misleading blurb.
The blurb says absolutely nothing about this book.
Not even that it's almost a suspense and/or thriller read.

Nowhere in the blurb it's said that now she has a kid.

Not only, very recently she's also become a fucking widow.

Yeah, that's right. She married OM and has a kid with him.

How convenient, her husband has been dead for 5 seconds and her ex lover (her "true" love) is back.

So, I'm curious.
What if her husband had never been killed?

With twenty books under her belt, it's a little surprising More of You was my first A.L. Jackson read. Though I have many of her books waiting on my Kindle, apparently receiving the paperback of this book was the push I needed to make time for this author. I really appreciated the chance to participate in the release of this book on Instagram!

As the story began, I was certain More of You would be an easy, five-star read. It's exactly the type of book I love: Romantic suspense, slow-burn, second-

I'm a fan of A.L. Jackson and for sure it has it's reasons. The woman knows how to trap us in a story, make us fall madly in love with the characters, finish reading with a smile on our face and exploding with love. MORE OF YOU is a book that has drama, second chance romance and even a little suspense to get people to stuck to the pages until they finally know what happened.

Even with everything going against, Jace and Faith fell in love still when they were teenagers. H

This was an emotional and suspenseful second chance romance. More of You is told in dual POV and flashes between the past and present. I am a huge fan of second chance romances featuring childhood lovers. There is something so sweet, yet all consuming about young love. The angst was high in this book, as Jace and Faith's story is slowly revealed. I couldn't wait to find out what ultimately drove our lovers apart and enjoyed piecing it all together.

More of You is the first book in A.L. Jackson’s brand-new Confessions of the Heart series, and what a way to start it out! This second chance romance was a masterpiece of complexity – layered with emotional unrest, disturbing and mysterious threats, and a selfless love that endures the toughest of challenges.

The characters and storyline blend together perfectly, and everything we’ve come to love from the author’s writing is top-notch and enraptures the reader from start to finish. Jace and Faith

There are certain books that you pick up and know you are going to love from the first few pages...this book is one of them. AL Jackson is a goddess when it comes to writing small town second-chance romances (which are my favorite) and this book was so much more than I expected. It is a touching, soul-crushing, beautifully written story about Faith & Jace. GAH these two are the perfect soulmates and their story begins with just a stolen glance. Their completely different lives fit perfectly ...more

Someone wants something from her and it's starting to seem like they'd do anything to get it. Then Jace arrives, the man she once desperately wanted to return, the man who turns her entire world upside down again.

More of You captured my interest from the very first page and had me engrossed in the story of Faith and Jace. Their story was so much more suspenseful than I thought it would be but I loved every second of the breath-stealing mystery. Added to that there was the growing romance between them as Jace coaxed his way back into Faith's life and heart.

Both characters had me on the edge of my seat rooting them on to get back together at the same time I was gripping m

Review by Lisa Kane

Faith is picking up the pieces of her life after she was left a widow. Her husband Joseph, was murdered. She would be totally lost if she didn't have her three-year old daughter, Bailey.

I wasn't sure I would ever recover from the way Joseph had died, from the fact that my husband had been murdered, my world rocked by grief and guilt and questions.

They didn't have the best marriage, but he was her daughter's father and her husband. She has hopes to turn the big rambling old h

I’ve been a fan of this author for a long time and have been riveted by her stories. This book was no different. It was amazing and fun to read, and I couldn’t help but love and adore Jace in all his broken ways.

A.L. Jackson is truly the master of the emotional, heart wrenching romances. Her prose makes you feel, wraps you up in the heartbreak and the reconciliation, and ultimately shows that the world is always full of hope, that where there is love, there is really hope for a better life.

More of You is everything I want in a second chance romance. And more. AL Jackson ignites an intensity only she can deliver and creates characters full of an unbridled passion that is hard to match. Faith Avery and Jace Jacobs are the very epitome of true love that sadly got snatched away due to bad decisions and the ongoing guilt of never being good enough. What the Beauty and her Beast had was quietly beautiful and as they come face to face again after 10 long years apart, I was right there wi ...more

Oh Jace Jacobs! How you stole my heart. I am a sucker for second chance romances. Jace and Faith were high school sweethearts. Jace was the bad boy, whose home life sucked and Faith was the town good girl. Instantly they had a connection. Unlike either of them have ever felt before. Something tears them apart for many years. Until one day Jace decides to come back to town to protect Faith from a hidden danger.
