Review! Show Me The Way By A.L. Jackson

Show Me the Way
The first stand-alone novel in A.L. Jackson's brand-new Fight for Me series...

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 . . .

I associate certain things with certain authors.  For A.L. Jackson she is my go to for emotional angst filled romances.  Show Me The Way was exactly what I have come to know and love from her.  It was emotional, it was at times heartbreaking, it had angst, it had drama, Show Me The Way had it all.

Rex, for a while there I wondered if I needed to jump into my kindle and just beat him senseless, but the more you learn about him and his past the more you understand why he is the way he is.  I had a feeling I knew one part that we discover but was thrown for a loop by the other part of that part.  I am really trying hard to not give any spoilers away so that last sentence may not make much sense but if you read it I think you will understand what I mean.  His love for his daughter, Frankie Leigh, was how a father’s love should be, she was his world. 

Rynna finally returned back to where she grew up after leaving years before after something happened.  I thought at first it was something else but when you find out the truth, I almost think it was even worse.  Rynna at times comes across as weak but I think that is due to what she went through before she left.  I think she balanced Rex out nicely, and the way she was with Frankie made me love her even more. 

My only issue with the book is that I wanted Rynna to really take her strength back from those who took it away.  I wanted her to take her power back, show them that they didn’t win but do it in a way that showed everyone that she was worth more than they ever believed.

I am looking forward to seeing which characters the next book will be about and I am excited about this new series from A.L. Jackson.  Add this one to your TBR lists!
