Come To Me Recklessly by A.L. Jackson

come-to-me-recklessly-by-a-l-jackson
From the New York Times bestselling author of Come to Me Softly, another irresistible new adult romance in the Closer to You Series.

His heart was turned off…
Until she turned him on….

Christopher Moore gave up on the idea of love years ago. Now, his life is an endless string of parties and an even longer string of girls. Enjoying the physical perks with none of the emotional mess, he’s convinced everyone that he’s satisfied—everyone but himself.
 
Samantha Schultz has moved on with her life. Finishing her student teaching and living with her boyfriend, she’s deluded herself into believing she’s content. But there is one boy she never forgot—her first love—and she keeps the memory of him locked up tight. She will never allow any man to break her the way Christopher did.
 
When Christopher’s sister and her family move into a new neighborhood, Christopher is completely unprepared to find Samantha living at the end of the street. Memories and unspent desires put them on collision course of sex, lies, and lust. But when guilt and fear send Samantha running, Christopher will have to fight for what has always been his.
A. L. Jackson
A.L. Jackson first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student. She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life.

Years later, she shared a short story she'd been working on with her two closest friends and, with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel. A.L. now spends her days writing in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three beautiful children. Her favorite pastime is spending time with the ones she loves.

Review: Come To Me Recklessly is a second-chance romance story, which reveals itself slowly to the reader, giving the characters increasing depth. As I haven't read the first 2 books in the series (which I fully intend to now!) I didn't know much about Christopher or Samantha as I started to read, but quickly got a solid picture of their personalities and why it all went wrong. A.L. Jackson has a brilliant way of writing that leaves the reader safe in the knowledge that the main characters are destined for each other, just waiting for them to catch onto it themselves. The plot is steamy, passionate and exciting and the ending is simply amazing!
