The first sexy, captivating, stand-alone novel in the brand-new FIGHT FOR ME series from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson . . .
With Show Me The Way, A.L. Jackson delivers yet another stunning and angst filled romance. When I finished this book, late into the night, I felt like my heart had just been put through the ringer. I’ve come to accept that this is what ALWAYS happens to me when I read an A.L. Jackson. I lose track of time and before I knew it I’d read the book cover to cover.
The story centers around Rynna Dayne, who I immediately felt an affinity toward. When we meet her she’s just experienced something traumatic and finds herself fleeing her hometown Gingham Lakes. Fast forward nearly a dozen years and we pick back up with Rynna, a stronger and more secure young woman returning home with some trepidation. Clearly she knows the that the past isn’t about to stay where it belongs. Not with Ms. Jackson delivering her story. And we won’t come to know just what drive her away until much later in the story.
The story line is perfectly paced as she is introduced to her neighbor Rex Gunner and his daughter Frankie Leigh. I loved Rex’s little family but it took a while for him to grow on me. He fights the draw he feels to Rynna and is not always the most endearing. But the beauty in Jacksons’ storytelling is how Rex’s why vets out, how their histories collide. They share an intense connection but both have reasons to doubt themselves and each other. Jackson gifts us with a great cast of secondary characters,some as support and some up to no good but it’s the children that always steal the show. For Rex and Rynna, it’s Frankie Leigh “Tiny Dancer” Gunner who steals the show. She becomes a bridge between them and inspires a new start.
I don’t think I’ve ever read an A.l. Jackson where she didn’t surprise me with a change in direction of the story. She’s a master at planting clues, but you truly never know what will come to fruition, whether you imagined a connection or not. Show Me The Way is a fabulous start to a new series, one that I’m very excited for. 4.5 Stars and recommendation!
