From the New York Times bestselling author of Come to Me Quietly comes
a scorching new adult romance in the Closer to You series.
A second chance at life…
A second chance at love…
  Jared Holt never thought he deserved either—until he found both in the arms of Aly Moore. Aly has loved Jared for as long as she can remember, and she’s more than ready for the future they’re making together. But Jared can’t help remembering his own family. And he’ll never forgive himself for what happened to them. How can he allow himself the very happiness he once destroyed? To live a life worthy of Aly, Jared knows he has to stop running and finally put his past to rest. But when he decides to face his demons head on, he encounters more than he bargained for: a dangerous mix of jealousy, lies, and dishonest intentions. When those intentions threaten Aly, Jared loses all control, giving into the rage that earned him his bad boy reputation years before. And he’ll fight to protect her no matter what it costs…even if he destroys himself in the process.

4.5 star review by Allison East

I love AL Jackson, I have read all of her books, and she never disappoints. I thought Come to Me Quietly was phenomenal, and Come to Me Softly was no different. Every time I read one of her books I get transported into AL's world, I want to get lost there. Jared and Aly's story is one of heartbreak and pain, but also love.

"I pressed all my hard to her soft, holding her close against me as I flattened myself to the snowy skin of her back. Mmm...yeah. I was in love with this girl. And I wasn't going to let her go."

Jared comes back to Aly's life, but nothing has changed. He wants to get over his past- but it seems like he is unable to live with the past, and the mistake he believes that he made. he definitely wants to be worthy of Aly, and her love, but he feels like he can't love her the way she deserves to be loves. He still wants and needs to be with her. He can't live like this

Aly has loved Jared her entire life. She needs him to basically man up, and deal with his demons for her, for them. She can't go on without him- but with his issues weighing them down its hard to move forward.

There is more of Aly's brother and parents in the story, which I always love secondary characters. And they are so well written- I want Christopher's story too, he needs a HEA.

This story makes you feel all the feelings they feel- hope, love- but also loss and pain. Elements of hurt, but also forgiveness. You won't want to miss a single bit of this story, so don't plan on starting late in the night, you'll be up until morning trying to finish it.

"I can't live without you, baby...can't sleep without you...can't breathe without you."

come to me quietly

Aleena Moore is content with her life. She has goals and dreams and an easy smile. She also has a secret she holds locked inside. Jared Holt believes he doesn’t deserve to love or be loved. He destroys everything he touches. Haunted by the mistake that shattered his life, he’s fled from the memory of that pain. Jared doesn’t know why he’s compelled to return, but finds himself drawn back to the place where it all began. The exact place where it ended. When he runs into his childhood best friend, Aleena’s older brother Christopher, he agrees to share Christopher and Aleena’s apartment while he looks for a place of his own. Aleena is no longer the little girl Jared remembers from his past and evokes feelings in him he never wanted to feel again. Terrified of destroying her, he fights to keep her away. But her touch is something he can’t resist—the touch that sealed his fate. Their pasts are intertwined and their futures uncertain. The only truths they know are the secrets they whisper in the night.

AL Jackson New Author Pic A.L. Jackson is the New York Times bestselling author of Take This Regret and Lost to You, as well as other contemporary romance titles, including Pulled, When We Collide, If Forever Comes, and Come to Me Quietly. She 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 children. Look for Come to Me Softly and When We Met: Behind Her Eyes coming soon.
