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

    The Queen of slow burning angst is back with a slight little roar.
    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.

    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.




    ”You are beauty looking back at me.”


    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

    "Do you think I could ever forget a single moment with you? Not ever. Not for a second. You were the only good thing I ever had."

    More of You is the first book in AL Jackson's Confessions of the Heart series. Jace and Faith had a connection from the start. Faith comes from a good family, but Jace grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. He is seen as a troublemaker with a chip on his shoulder. However, Faith sees something in him that int

I took my time with this read because I wanted to savor every word. I was gripped from the very first page and captivated by the story with its heartpounding suspense, on the edge of your seat roller coaster ride of emotions and undying profound love.

    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

    *SPOILER-FREE REVIEW*

    The queen of romance, A.L. Jackson, reigns supreme when it comes to writing second-chances. Delivering heart-felt stories that are often times complicated, messy and beautifully imperfect, each book she writes is guaranteed to strike an emotional chord. And with the first release in her brand new Confessions of the Heart series, “More of You,” A.L. Jackson once again proves that she is truly worthy of wearing that royal crown. Pulling out all the stops while avoiding easy pi

    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.
    Faith has wall built up because Jace left her all those years ago. Jace swears he's jus

    Jace doesn't really take no for an answer, "no way in**ll was I backing down from this. No way in hell was I walking away from her. “I’m moving in.” Jace could be so tender and sweet, and just so caring and lovimg, “it’s okay, I’ve got you. I’m right here. You don’t have to be afraid.” I liked this book, I loved Jace.

    OMG!!!!!!

    This book has me loving, laughing, crying and hating!!! What a great roller coaster ride!

    The story of Ollie and Nikki was one of the best love stories I have read in awhile. So many emotions I experienced while reading it.
    This book fills in the blanks from the other stories but can be read as a stand alone.

    This is a book you don't want to miss. Sit back and get caught up in a well written good read!!!!!

    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

    “Second chances in the middle of a mystery, 5 stars”

    Goodness gracious did Jackson knock More of You out of the ballpark! More of You sucked me in instantly and didn’t let me come up for air until the very end. You have two people who are hesitant to give the other another chance with mystery and suspense. I absolutely loved it and never saw the end coming, which for me is huge!

    It’s nearly impossible to put into words the way I feel about this book. I’ve been in love with AL Jackson’s words since the very first time I picked up one of her books, and each book has me falling more in love.

    Jace Jacobs is this beautiful, broken creature who takes the world on his shoulders and refuses to see that he means the world to those he loves. He is strong, caring, and oh, so sexy. His love for Faith and her daughter Bailey is so grand, that alone had me falling for him. But his he

    Another 5 star read. A great start to a new series. Second chance romance is always a winner. More of You is no different. A truly emotional story. Jace never felt he was good enough or would ever be good enough for Faith. His upbringing was not the best. A junky mother, no father in sight and he had to take care of his brother and cousin in order to survive. He did everything and anything to keep them safe. They only had each other. Faith from the first day she saw Jace knew there was more to h ...more

    Jace was the bad boy. He and his family were the true outcasts and on the fast track to nowhere when he landed in her world. Faith. Just her name was beauty to him. It is so much more than teen love gone wrong. This is an emotionally charged story of two people who are destined for forever. But life always finds a way to mess up beautiful things.

    A.L. Jackson has slayed me once again with her words! More Of You is book 1 of the Confessions Of the Heart series. It is the second chance at romance for Jace and Faith. It has been 10 years since they have seen each other and there is so much hurt and pain in those years but God do they have such a beautiful love story before that. It's evil forces that bring Jace back to "sway aww the dragons" and Faith's adorable 3 year old daughter says. This book is such an amazing rollercoaster ride of em ...more

    I'm a sucker for second chance romance. Then you add in the factor that it started as young love and I am a goner. And the cherry on top when she adds a little one in the mix. Yep I'm a puddle.

    How far would you go to protect the ones you love? Could you walk away from the one person who ever believed in you? That ever made you feel anything?

    Faith and Jace had met as teenagers. Jace was seen as the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Faith was a good girl who saw the best in people including Jace. Jace was protecting his brother and cousin or at least trying.They made plans to be together forever. Then one night everything changed. Would Faith and Jace get their happy ever after? Could Jace protect his family and have his happiness?

    What a great angsty love story of second chances.

    Faith and Jace were high school sweet hearts. Jace was written off as the bad boy from across the tracks and Faith, the good girl. But she believed in Jace and knew that he was more than he seemed. But he just leaves, leaving Faith broken hearted.

    10 years later he is back and he vows to be there for her. To not leave her like he did last time. But there is more than meets the eye in this story. He vows to not fall for her but he can't hel

Sometimes that love doesn't happen when its suppose to, but you believe enough and have enough courage and FAITH it will happen.

    Okay, the H in this book is one of my all time faves! He’s complex, loyal, loving, kind, hot of course, and I’m in love with him. Maybe that sounds crazy and I’m okay with that. That’s how much I loved Jace. Faith is great, too, and her daughter Bailey will charm you for sure. This story has it all, angst, suspense, love, hot sex and everything in between. Read it!!!
