"Even if I can't see you, I'll know you're there, and I'll find my way to you."
There are books that make you want to live in them and experience what the characters are going through. Some of it will be painful, hard to watch and feel, and it will gut you. But what if it's all worth it in the end?
Reading Never Look Back was like feeling the kind of love that was always meant to be, pushed down but never forgotten, written in the stars.

"The spice was on point and the romance was swoony. A total must read." -The Boho Book Blogger

NEVER LOOK BACK is finally LIVE!! I have been so anxious to get this story into your hands - LOGAN AND ASTER ARE PURE ROMANCE. This is probably the swooniest, sexiest, most intense story I've ever written. Everything about it was pure magic. I cannot wait for you to fall in love with these two the way I did writing them!

If there's one thing that AL Jackson knows how to do, is to hit her readers right in the feels with the force of a Mac truck. And this book? Well, it didn't just hit you in the feels. It ran them over. Then backed up and ran over them again for good measure. And this girl? I was so here for it!

Feels so good to be back in Redemption Hills! A.L. Jackson has created a book world I literally don’t want to leave. I completely fell in love with her writing after reading the first in the series and she continues surprising us with the next installments. Now it’s time for Logan to find his happy ever after but it’s not as easy as his personality portrays to be (flirty and fun), this book and story h

5 Star Review Never Look Back (Redemption Hills #3) by A L Jackson

Never Look Back is the third book in the Redemption Hills series and was a great addition to the series. It was well written and had me invested from the first to the last chapter.
This is Logan Lawson and Aster Costa’s story and it was everything I was expecting and more. The more I read the more I was drawn into the story that Ms. Jackson wove.
This is a second chance at love story and one that ticked all the boxes for me. Their

Just the perfect story for the youngest Lawson brother! I knew it would be a doozy, but oh my poor heart! Seven years ago Logan and Astor were broken apart by misunderstanding, greed, and devastation. Now, Logan Lawson is sitting across from Astor's husband with her as the ante. Never Look Back is the 3rd book in the Redemption Hills series by AL Jackson and can be read as a standalone, but best enjoyed when read in series order.

They planned to run away from a life full of crime and danger, to stay together forever but circumstances made them suffer a different fate. Though when they faced each other seven years later, Aster is determined to be set free and Logan wins a bet in which he wins her.

I don't think I've ever cheered on a couple like I did Aster and Logan. Their journey together broke my heart but it was also so beautifully written that I couldn't help but fall in love with it. They had a connection that was evident on every page even through the pain and the hate they shared.

Aster had a quiet strength that I really admired. She went through so much in her life but she didn't let it break her and it had her finding her way back to Logan even afte

Logan Lawson just asked his big bro Trent to hold his beer....while he made me fall in love with him! Yes, I said what I said. AND isn't that exactly a Logan Lawson thing to do?!?! I always knew I'd love this one! He has always been that carefree and loving uncle to sweet Gage and then Juni when she came along. His relationship with them alone would have you swooning.

Amy's done it again. Never Look Back is an emotional ride that will gut you, make you smile, laugh, get you hot, have you rooting for the MCs and leave you feeling content in the love that drives Aster and Logan to their HEA.

I just knew there'd be more to Logan than the joker, playboy persona that he presents to the world. He's the Funcle to Gage in the Cage and Juni Bee but underneath all the laughs and jokes is a man who’s grieving the loss of his first love.

Though there is an interesting story at its heart, this book gets bogged down in parts by repetitive, overly-flowery, maudlin, prose coupled with a pacing problem. This is a classic case where an author gives readers too much "more." Because, sometimes? Less is more.

I enjoyed some of the more emotional and flowery passages... but then I'd read the same sentiment in basically the same words over and over again to the point where the words lost their meaning and power. There was also a lot of rep

**Audio Review **

Oh, my stars! Never Look Back by A.L. Jackson was a devastatingly beautiful emotional second chance enemies to lovers romance that tugged at my heartstrings in all the right places. I am loving each trip back to the small town of Redemption Hills. Logan and Aster’s journey to HEA is full of past heartache which leads to a hopeful future. Plus, Logan may be my new favorite Lawson brother, swoon!

Logan Lawson is your quintessential "fun guy" - the "life of the party" playboy, the coolest uncle to Gage and Juni Bee... but underneath it all lies a heart that's deeply hurt. "You can't keep shining when you only shine to cover the darkness you hold onto." He's gone legit (almost) when his brothers flew the MC family they were raised into, but his thrill-seeking ways send him to an illegal card game. And in one of these games, he wins her in a bet - the woman who broke him.

“They say the devil is so beautiful you wouldn’t be able to look at him if you saw him in his original form.”

What do the terms “sexy, gregarious and charismatic” all have in common? Look them up in the dictionary and you’re likely to find this name—LOGAN LAWSON. The youngest of the Lawson brothers, Logan is the very epitome of these enviable traits, at least from the outside looking in. But he’s also a bit of an enigma.

Never Look Back is the angsty read I didn’t know I needed! The emotions in this book had my heart in a vise and I couldn’t put the book down!!

The book starts off strong! No skirting around just straight for the heart and from there I was a mess till the end of the book! Aster and Logan have a history strewn with love and filled with pain!

I loved seeing Logan in a way I hadn’t before! He’s the comedic relief of the brothers but seeing how big his heart is and how fiercely he loves was beautiful!

This was a perfect swoony, angsty and nail biting second chance romance for me and I loved it. From the moment Logan saw Aster at the card game it was obvious that they had history together and I was dying to know their story.

Ms Jackson gave us an amazing storyline in this book. Aster and Logan's back story was heart-breaking as they were cruelly torn apart as teenagers and Aster was forced to marry against her will, but it was the story in the present day that I found nail biting. I was so afra

The last of the 3 brothers’ story is here and it does not disappoint. From the get go we see the truth behind love and loss. This book seemed so much darker. It deals with betting and all bets are off when Logan is in the room. It also has abuse of one’s partner, Aster knows all about that. With this duo you are in for one heck of a ride. This enemies to lovers story is going to pull you in quickly.

Logan Lawson is an enigma to those of use reading The Redemption Hills Series. There is not much we know about him. Shrouded in mystery we know his story is going to have some twist and turns. In True AL Jackson style I was not ready. I was not ready with how much Logan Lawson was going to be a twist read. Logan is a charming rebel. Logan is so much more than his charm; his soul and his depth was so much more. There is a brokenness to him, yet he is resilient.

Dang these two put you through it! I absolutely cheered them on from the very beginning. There are lots of secrets that unfold as to why the heroine does what she does back when they were teens in love. The hero has basically held a grudge all these yea
