Maxon Chambers has a way of stealing all the attention.
All my affection, and all my dreams.
What I needed to remember was he’d stolen my good judgment and my virginity, too.
When he broke up with me, I ran across the country and swore I’d never return to Broadshire Rim.
But here I am, thirteen years later.
Maxon is all grown up.
Sexier than sin and more tempting than ever.
A detective on the Charleston force, he lives on the outside of safety, devoted to protecting the people of his city.
But with the way he’s looking at me now? I’m pretty sure what needs protecting is my heart.
Can we mend the pieces of us? Or will he leave my heart shattered forever . . .
A broken heart left Izzy fleeing from the place that she once called home. Determined to never step foot in her hometown again, Izzy held a lot of burdens upon her shoulders. When one of her sons required medical intervention that could only be found close to her childhood home, Izzy swallowed her pride and moved back in with her parents. The one thing that forced Izzy to dread this homecoming even more was the prospect of facing her past.
All of the substantial moments from Izzy’s past center around Maxon. He was her savior even at a young age. Now the two face the feelings that never went away, in spite of a not so pleasant break up. While Maxon has become a police officer and cleaned up his act, there are still remnants of the broken boy that leaned on Izzy during the times when he needed strength. This homecoming will rattle Maxon deep within his heart. Forcing Maxon to face the past, the future, and the consequences of a life that was once left behind.
Pieces of Us is the latest installment in the Confessions of the Heart series by AL Jackson. The plot centers around Izzy and Maxon, two very broken souls that have quite the history together. Maxon grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, living a lifestyle that was hard to overcome. Through it all, Izzy was the light at the end of the tunnel. After a series of circumstances led Maxon to realize he was endangering Izzy by being a part of her life, Maxon decided setting his ‘Little Bird’ free was the only answer. What Maxon did not realize was just how much this romance would shape the future for both of these tortured souls.
The dynamic between Izzy and Maxon is very realistic and easy to imagine. Both are looking towards a future, but their pasts will have to be exposed along the way. This second chance at love will draw you deeper into the love story of two well rounded characters. While I loved these characters, I also found the secondary characters breathed so much life into this story. A wonderful addition that further strengthened a plot that will keep you rooting for the future.
Ahhh I can’t wait for you to experience this story!
I’m so insanely proud of it! I can’t wait to hear what you think!
