All of Me (Confessions of the Heart #2) by A.L. Jackson
People call me callous. Arrogant. Ruthless.
I call myself tenacious.
One of the most powerful attorneys in Charleston, I don’t let anyone or anything stand in my way.
Until a chance encounter changes everything.
It only leaves me wanting more.
But Grace is off limits. Most people would even say forbidden.
Everyone knows an attorney can’t sleep with his client.
Too bad I already did.
And even with the threat of losing everything, I don’t know if I can stop myself from having her again...
Ian was almost more tragic than Jace was. I felt so sorry for him that his father was that asshole who mentored him from the time he was seventeen. That he felt like he was the one responsible for his mother's death, when he was just a fucked up kid. It sucked that his brother left him in the worst possible way (jail) when he needed thim the most. I also loved that Grace put so much faith in him but I felt bad for her that her husband Reed was a total asshole and the one who actually overdosed Ian's mother. How much of a mind fuck was that?
A.L. Jackson is one of my go to authors. I love her men. They’re strong and sexy as hell and usually messed up in a way that is never going to be easy to overcome.
This new series introduces us to Jace and Ian. Brothers who grew up with nothing but have still gone on to make something of themselves. Maybe not what you would typically call successful. But they survived and thrived, so I’m calling it a win.
Ian’s story was almost more tragic than Jace’s. He was the one who was left behind, the one who fell in with the wrong people and carried a ton of guilt that never should have been his to own. He was just a fucked up kid who grew up to be kind of a fucked up adult. He needed someone like Grace. He deserved someone like Grace to show him what he had to work for and give him purpose.
Neither of them deserved to deal with someone like Grace’s ex-husband, Reed. You just knew that situation was going to cause all kinds of problems. He was an asshole of epic proportions.
This book will keep you turning pages from beginning to end. You’ll fall in love with Grace’s kids and you get to visit with Jace and Faith again, which is always a good thing.
