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 fell hard and fast.
He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart.

Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door.
Sexier than he’s ever been.
Provocative and commanding.
Successful and powerful.
The man I always knew he would become.
But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again.

Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.

Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.
Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .

I came across this one the other day and it sounded pretty exciting so I decided to dive straight into it. It was fun getting to know both Faith and Jace and realising the history they both had. I enjoyed being in this small town, but there was some darkness hiding there that I wanted to see unravel.

Faith had been through a lot in the past 10 years and it was sad seeing the roller-coaster her life had become. She had had grieved more than one person should, and Jace was one of those reasons. I liked seeing her be so confident and strong because she was not only protecting herself any more.

Jace had a tough life before leaving 10 years ago, but in recent years he had worked hard to become a successful business man. He came back to town because he knew something wasn't right after the loss of his cousin. I liked that he was so kind and was willing to do what he could to make Faith's life better and I knew that these two would fall for one another once again.

I've read A.L. Jackson in the past and although she is a great writer, however she never manages to blow me away. I find that sometimes the story drags out way too long and I get a little bored that I skip through some moments. I did enjoy the suspense element woven through this particular story, but I found it hard when the characters struggled with their feelings! I was thinking Argh! Grow a set, you are all adults! Anyway, if you like a slow build to a story, getting to know characters and seeing their relationships strengthen, you will enjoy this one!

Here are a couple of sweet moments between Faith and Jace... you could feel the chemistry oozing off the pages!

“Don’t do that,” he softly chided. His thumb moved to her lip that was tucked between her teeth, setting it free.
The skin tingled from his touch.
“Do what?” she whispered, her eyes wide and unsure.
“Make me want to kiss you.” Faith moaned.
Just from him saying it.

“Faith,” he muttered. A warning and a question. Half a second later, those big hands landed on her neck, gliding up to tangle in her hair.
She gasped at the onslaught of sensation brought on by his touch.
But she wasn’t prepared. She wasn’t even close to being prepared for the way she would feel when his mouth slanted over hers.
His lips rough and smooth as they pressed against hers.
Slowly at first.
Giving and taking.
Testing and tasting.
Those butterflies shivered.
He edged her back until she was pinned against the wall of the house.
