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.
This is only the second book of AL Jackson’s, that I have read. She is the queen of 2nd chance romance stories. The angst that comes along with these types of books, is what I live for!
Come to Me Recklessly, is Christopher and Samantha’s story. I have not read the first the first 2 books in this series, and never once felt lost, or like I was missing anything. So feel free to read it as a stand alone.
My heart ached for Samantha, and the life she was living. She was doing what she thought was safe, and what would keep her from getting hurt. Until one day she runs into her first loves sister, and eventually is met face to face with Christopher. I was surprised at the bad feelings Christopher had towards Sam, and it made me want to smack him a couple times!
“As I watched. I realized there was no evil in Christopher Moore. And if there was. I wanted to be infected with it.”
I loved their chemistry. Good girl with a deep love for a bad boy, yet they have so many misunderstandings and history in the way, how will they get past it all? This is why I gave a 3.5 stars, I don’t like the misunderstandings, that could have been easily solved, but that is my own personal thing.
A.L. Jackson writes beautifully, her words flow so clear and romantic. Not to many authors have that talent, and I have crazy respect for that. If you are a fan of A.L. Jackson and 2nd chance romance, then I highly recommend this read.
“No, Samantha. You just make me better. You cant see all my ugly when I’m surrounded by your light.”
