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 . . .

 

 

 

 

Show Me the Way was featured as one of my picks for Can’t Wait Wednesday, and I was surprised when I was won a copy of it. I was anxious to read it but wow, it was even more that I was expecting. After reading the prologue, and wiping some tears, I knew I was in for an emotional story,

Rex Gunner is the owner of successful construction company, a single father, the epitome of sexy but is probably the most bitter man, that I have read about. Rynna Dayne left her home when she was young and didn’t look back, upon returning she will have to face the very things that drove her away. Rex is content with his life at the moment. He has his gorgeous daughter, the center of his world. But when he sees Rynna, something inside him changes but he has swore of women. There is no way this woman is getting anywhere near him, and there no way in hell she is getting anywhere near his daughter. And this is where our story begins.

Rex is one of those characters that I would like to have the ability to slap a few times. He was so bitter, he has shut himself down emotionally where women are concerned. His adoration for his daughter was heartwarming though. Any man who could love that little girl like that, had to have had something awful happen to him, to make be the way he was with everyone else. From the moment he sees Rynna it is clear there is something there, but nope this man is as stubborn as a mule. Rynna moving back home wasn’t something she planned, but after her grandmother died she felt that she needed to. The emotional scars that she has carried all this time, she will try move past them so that she take over the family business. For everything this girl has been through, it was amazing the strength and determination she had. I liked her from the start.

Told from both Rex and Rynna’s point of views, lays out their histories a little at a time. But the push and pull between these two was excruciating, two steps forward, three steps back. Their attraction for each other kept me on the edge of my seat with anticipation. They have some times together that are steam up the windows kinda steamy, and I was ’bout damn time!’ Seriously, they have both been through so much and all I wanted was happiness for both, but with a few secrets and twists I wondered if that was going to happen. It was such an emotional roller coaster and one that I happy to take a ride on.

A.L. Jackson’s writing is simply beautiful, she pulls you, makes you feel their anger, their sorrow, pain and their happiness. Show Me the Way was an all consuming story of second chances, and learning to forgive yourself as well. I an completely addicted to this series, and I can not wait to see where we are taken next!

    Oh wow, this sounds like a good read too. I like that Rex was a bit closed off and bitter, but Rynna managed to get under his skin!
