From the acclaimed bestselling author of Lost to You and When We Collide comes a new adult novel of one woman’s obsession: a man who’s as passionate as he is elusive—and as tempting as he is trouble…
Aleena Moore is haunted by Jared Holt. It’s been six years since she’s seen her brother’s best friend, the self-destructive bad boy she secretly loved in high school. As the years pass, she knows it’s time to move on. Time to decide between a practical nursing degree and her true dream as an artist. Time to get over Jared and give another guy a chance…
Just when she opens her heart to her friend Gabe, Aly returns home to find Jared sleeping on her couch. The teenage boy she loved has grown into a man she can’t resist. Covered in tattoos and lost in rage, he’s begging to be saved from his demons—the memories of the day he destroyed his family. As the two reconnect, their passion is hot enough to torch Aly’s judgment. But can she risk her future for a man who lives on the edge of destruction?
Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS
Review: This is my first read by author A. L. Jackson, and after reading Come to Me Quietly, oh, it certainly won't be the last. I love a good emotional book that pulls me in and steals my heart. Yeah, this one did for sure. I felt so many different emotions while reading!
The point of views switch between Aly and Jared, and seeing each other after six years takes it's toll on the both of them. He's her brother's best friend, but her feelings ran deeper, as did Jared's even when he wants to deny everything because he doesn't feel he's good enough. They've both been through hell and back, and maybe if they let the walls come down, they could help each other heal.
Beautifully written and haunting, Come to me Quietly took me on an emotional roller coaster. I'm eager for more, and will be looking for other titles by this talented author.

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.
