TITLE: PIECES OF US
SERIES: A Confessions of the Heart Stand-Alone Novel
RELEASE DATE: April 22nd, 2019
Maxon Chambers has a way of stealing all the attention.
All my affection, and all my dreams.
What I needed to remember was he’d stolen my good judgment and my virginity, too.
When he broke up with me, I ran across the country and swore I’d never return to Broadshire Rim.
But here I am, thirteen years later.
Maxon is all grown up.
Sexier than sin and more tempting than ever.
A detective on the Charleston force, he lives on the outside of safety, devoted to protecting the people of his city.
But with the way he’s looking at me now? I’m pretty sure what needs protecting is my heart.
Can we mend the pieces of us? Or will he leave my heart shattered forever . . .
His head rocked back and forth, his body shaking, shoulders pumping up and down.
“Izzy,” he murmured, so low, my name a needy groan.
“Maxon.” I shouldn’t have said it because it came out sounding like a plea.
“Little Bird,” he whispered, his lips featherlight where he painted the words along the length of my jaw.
A gasp left me on a breath as a riot of sensation erupted. Tingles streaked, gooseflesh rising in an undulating wave.
“So pretty,” he mumbled.
He exhaled a breath that became mine.
Our noses brushed.
Back and forth.
Back and forth.
Oh, God, what was he doin’?
Flames flickered beneath the bare caress. The man my fire, my cold body begging to come alive under his scorching touch.
I whimpered, sagging against the wall when he stroked his hands down my sides and slipped them under my dress, palms riding up the outside of my thighs.
Better question was what I was doing. But there was no reason. No sanity in the middle of this.
No logic where heartbreak and hope met.
“You are so fucking sexy.” His confession was a growl. Deep and dark. “Do you have any idea what it was like sitting across from you all night? What it was like waking up with you asleep in my chair? Like staring at the sun, knowing you’ll go blind if you look for too long, and knowing taking in that beauty for even a second would be worth it.”
He nudged forward, erasing the space between us, and his hands spread wider.
Desire raced. A flashflood of need that shivered across my flesh.
His mouth traced the shell of my ear. “Want to stare at you forever. Get lost. Take you. Possess you. How’s it possible you’re here, Little Bird? You came back to me. Feel like I’m dreaming.”
“It was you who didn’t want me.”
His hands tightened on my thighs, tugging me forward against his hard body, eyes pinned on me. “There’s never been a single day in my life when I didn’t want you. We are endless.”
My ARC Review:
Another fabulous read from A.L. Jackson, this one will have your heart breaking in two and an emotional wreck before being put back together again with a love sooo strong!! I fell hard for Mack and Izzy’s story, its achingly beautiful and an absolute delight to read!
Mack and Izzy were neighbours growing up and have been the best of friends since they were little. He’s the boy from the wrong side of the tracks, his dad being dangerous and abusive, living in fear for most of the time. Izzy was the light in his life, his best friend, the one who made the darkness go away if only for a little bit. But he knew he was no good for her and didn’t want to bring her into his darkness.
Izzy has been in love with Mack since she was 5, he was always rescuing her when she needed it, he was her best friend and she loved him dearly, clearly seeing the good in him which he could not see himself. But he broke her heart and she ran away. Its been 12 years since they have seen each other and now she’s back in her hometown, and she can’t escape the pure magnitude of passion and electricity that still flows between them. She was hoping that she could just stay away, but things don’t work out that way.
Beautifully written, very powerful and raw, I couldn’t get through this fast enough, eager for another piece of Izzy and Mack’s past and how their future would pan out. I’m not going into details as you need to read this for yourself to understand the electricity and the passion that just flows off the pages for these two, its quite incredible! Izzy is a wonderful character, strong and determined, having survived so much and with such a weight on her shoulders! Mack is so desperately broken but his yearning for Izzy will break your heart, he wants what he has lost and missed out on, but still feels she is too good for him, but lives in hope.
I loved this story, especially the two secondary characters you will meet, my word my heart ached for them but they really did bring out all the feels while learning about them, stole my heart they did!
A wonderful read, the whole series has been fabulous, highly recommended reading.
