Double Review: SHOW ME THE WAY by A. L. Jackson

Title: Show Me the Way 
Author: A. L. Jackson 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: October 1st, 2017 

The first sexy, captivating, stand-alone novel in the brand-new FIGHT FOR ME series from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson . . . 

Rex Gunner. As bitter as he is beautiful. 

The owner of the largest construction company in Gingham Lakes has been burned one too many times. His wife leaving him to raise their daughter was the last blow this single dad could take. The only woman he’ll let into his heart is his little girl. 

Rynna Dayne. As vulnerable as she is tempting. 

She ran from Gingham Lakes when she was seventeen. She swore to herself she would never return. Then her grandmother passed away and left her the deed to the diner that she once loved. 

When Rex meets his new neighbor, he knows he’s in trouble. 

She’s gorgeous and sweet and everything he can’t trust.

Until she becomes the one thing he can’t resist. 

One kiss sends them tumbling toward ecstasy. 

But in a town this size, pasts are bound to collide. Caught in a web of lies, betrayal, and disloyalty, Rex must make a choice. 

Will he hide behind his walls or will he take the chance . . .

"Had no idea how to give her what was so clearly building up between us. A savage storm. Brutal." 

I probably say this a lot but you can never and I mean NEVER go wrong with an A. L. Jackson book. She is a master at story telling and her characters simply take my breath away. Nobody writes sorrow, pain, beauty, redemption, and passion like this lady. 

"Just looking at her had every inch of me tightening. In need. In want. In this mad kind of love." 

Show Me the Way follows the story of Gunner and Rynna. Gunner has had a crap go at life. His wife just up and left him, leaving their little girl alone with him. Gunner is a single dad and though it's turned out to be the toughest job he's ever had... it's also the best thing that has ever happened to him. 

"You changed everything the day you walked into my life. You are my hearts second chance." 

Rynna ran from Gingham Lakes and her past a long ago but now she can't run...and has to return due to her grandmothers untimely death. Her grandmother was her favorite person in the world and she can't let her down. But Ry never expected to run into a grumpy, sexy, single father living across the street. Gunner is the sexiest man that she's ever laid eyes on and she can't deny the attraction that she has for him. 

But she knows he lives a very troubled life and she want's nothing more than to help him but he won't let her get close enough. These two have never had an easy life...they've had to fight for what they want and push their way through life. Fate has thrown them into each other lives, or is it someone else. Will these two deny the attraction they have for one another or will they give in and lead each other through their pain? 
"If you aren't laughing, you're crying. Now, which would you rather be doing?"

AL Jackson is one of my all time favorite romance authors and I was so excited to dive into her brand new Fight for Me series! I'm going to start this review by saying, she delivered. This book was everything I hoped for and more. I went into SHOW ME THE WAY knowing basically nothing about it except the fact that I was certain I would love it.

"All moments matter. We just rarely know how important they are until the chance to act on them has already passed."

Every time I start reading a book by AL Jackson I'm reminded how beautiful her writing is. I'm not sure how it's possible for me to ever forget this fact, but it happens time and again. I fell deeply and irrevocably head over heels for Rex Gunner. He was pure perfection. Seeing how Rex interacted with his daughter is soooo swoony. He's genuine but more than a little broken after the way his wife left him. So when Rynna comes into his life he wants nothing to do with her. But life has other plans and she is continually forced into his life. Rynna fled her home town more than a decade ago with no desire to ever return. When danger and lust push them, they reach a breaking point. Can they both overcome the events of their pasts that left them scared?

"Don't let anyone chase you from what belongs to you"

I have absolutely adored every thing I've read by this author. I can't wait to read more from this series. If you haven't picked this one up yet, I can't recommend it enough. And if you have any you're dying for the next release, you can pick up her Novella: HUNT ME DOWN now! A.L. Jackson's writing has a beautifully rhythmic and smooth pace to it. If you've never read one of her books I urge you to do so immediately! Happy Reading
