WHOA!!! A.L. Jackson had me at the prologue. I was immediately intrigued by the heroine’s circumstances and what makes her decide to hightail it out of town. She stays out for over a decade until her grandmother passes away that she makes her way back to Alabama for the first time. The two main characters in this book are a bit flawed, broken, and hurt from the people they trust the most. Rynna is gorgeous, sweet and caring. She grew up with her grandmother. They were seemingly close so why did she run away, and why did she decide to move back for good? This secret will reveal as the story unfolds. Rex is a single dad who lives next door to Rynna’s grandmother with his daughter. Rex is all brooding, cold and straight up rude but he too has a painful past that makes him shy away from attaching to people, least of all the beautiful, tempting new neighbor. That does not mean Rex can ignore the sizzling chemistry, the heat, and attraction between them though. Rex is fascinated by his neighbor but he does not want to take a chance and is afraid of getting hurt. Rynna is determined to break down his wall piece by piece. It won’t be an easy task – there are plenty of ups and downs and twisty turns. I love that their story is an emotional, intense, angsty one. I am a sucker for this kind of romance because it made the ending much more satisfying.
Show me the way is a fantastic romance and more. It’s a second chance for both Rynna and Rex – a touching, heartwarming, emotional journey to find love and happiness. After all the heartache and betrayal, they both deserve it. As I said in the past, I love stories with little people, whether single mom or single dad. Rex’s little princess Frankie is absolutely adorable. I love the way she interacts with Rynna and Rex – sweet, cute, lighthearted, fun — put a smile on my face. Also, let’s not forget the fantastic, sexy, swoony, panty dropping, delicious love making and the slow burn romance. Loved every minute of the story!!!!
Any fans of A.L. Jackson know that her writing is nothing short of spectacular – it’s poetic, lyrical, and breathtaking really. She has a way of storytelling that is all consuming, addicting, and unputdownable. Show Me The Way is a masterpiece, an outstanding beginning to The Fight For Me series!
