Review – Show Me the Way by A.L. Jackson


Show Me the Way by A.L. Jackson

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

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

It won’t take you long to learn that every word that A.L. Jackson pens to life is MEANINGFUL; every word MATTERS. Every word that this author writes is FULL OF FEELS. Every word BLEEDS BEAUTY. Every word is mesmerizing and meaningful. Every word means everything. Every word is EVERYTHING!!!

When I read A.L. Jackson’s last book in my beloved Bleeding Stars series this past Summer, I didn’t think this wonderful writer would heal that hangover so quickly. I didn’t think I could sink myself into another story of this author’s when another series of hers still held my heart in its hands. I didn’t think I could love another series or story of A.L. Jackson’s so much. Show Me the Way this single dad romance, burrowed its way into my heart from the very start and never let go. I COULDN’T LET GO of this heart-hitting love story, especially when the heart hit the hardest was mine.

Two broken souls, one chasing light while one relishes the darkness, collide. This collision of past with present, dark with light, and a whole lot of fate was INEVITABLE. 

A guy like that had heartache written all over him. And I’d had enough of that to last me a lifetime.


Oh Rex!!! Hard and soft. Dark and light. This sage-eyed single dad with the body of perfection and the damaged soul was a man I wanted to save. A man who has paid what he believes to be his penance for too long. A man who has never wanted to take a chance on love again…until her.

I stared at her standing in the moonlight. Like some sort of wicked enchantress with the face of an angel.

Rynna is beautiful inside and out. After a life of hell, this heroine is choosing happy. This angel is the light to a dark knight.

Broken sees broken.

Like sees like. 

He needed someone to revive his faith just as desperately as I did. Because looking at him? I suddenly knew he had none of it.

A connection, so big as if it beckoned from above, blazes between Rex and Rynna. An aura of fire—fueled by fate—dances around them. Lighting them up. Lifting them out of the darkness.

I had her pinned. Just like me. I crushed my mouth to hers . . . I just needed to feel something different from the constant turmoil that raged inside . . . touch on something that felt like hope.

That kiss was so many things!!! One kiss with passion and power in spades. One kiss that penetrates straight to the heart. One kiss that meant so much more. Oh did I feel this hero and heroines’ passion too!

Pretty soon, this man was going to drown me. Take me all the way under.

I DROWNED in A.L. Jackson’s poetic words—so passionate and poignant—where I didn’t want to surface for air. Show Me the Way sucked me in, pulling me under. I could do nothing but FEEL EVERYTHING.

”When I close my eyes, who I see is you. Show me the way, Rynna. Show me the way out of it.”


GAH!!!! These words were SOOO MESMERIZING and MOVING!!! These words shot sparks to my soul. These words made my heart beat out of its chest. These words WERE EVERYTHING!!! Show Me the Way is EVERYTHING!!!

Show Me the Way showed itself—baring its soulful story to my soul and piercing my heart with each PASSIONATE and POETIC word. I FELL HARD for the broken hero and heroine—hearts torn apart but whose shattered pieces flawlessly fit together. My heart bled for these broken characters who became a part of me. I expected this story centered on a single dad to steal my heart; I didn’t expect it to steal so many tears. I could feel Show Me the Way so hard that tears remained etched in my eyes!!! I was RENDERED BARE and BROKEN in the most beautiful way!!!

This HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL BOOK hits the heart like a hurricane—as Show Me the Way slams into the soul—where every word penetrates with a force felt everywhere!!! A.L. Jackson’s words relentlessly tear and tug at the heart every time. With each beautifully broken book that this incredibly talented author writes, my heart leaves a piece behind in each soul-slaying story. Show Me the Way SLAYS all the way!!! As heartwarming as it is heart-wrenching, Show Me the Way is a romance felt long after the last page.

”You can’t move forward without moving on.”

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 . . .
