SERIES: A Confessions of the Heart Stand-Alone Novel

RELEASE DATE: December 3rd, 2018

“This is without a doubt my top read for 2018.”

~A Book Lover’s Emporium Book Blog


People call me callous. Arrogant. Ruthless.

I call myself tenacious.

One of the most powerful attorneys in Charleston, I don’t let anyone or anything stand in my way.

Until a chance encounter changes everything.

One glance.

One touch.

One night.

It only leaves me wanting more.

But Grace is off limits. Most people would even say forbidden.

Everyone knows an attorney can’t sleep with his client.

Too bad I already did.

And even with the threat of losing everything, I don’t know if I can stop myself from having her again…

All of Me – a Confessions of the Heart forbidden, stand-alone romance




My Review

AL Jackson’s prologues get me EVERY SINGLE TIME! The insights readers obtain about one or both of the main characters allow us to understand how the past has shaped their present as well as why they live the way they do, never considering that things could be different for them until they meet someone who calls to/speaks to their soul, and even then, it’s a tenuous path – one that could suffer irreparable damage at any time.

Ian Jacobs has been singularly focused on becoming a powerful and successful attorney for quite some time, and it’s his work ethic and his determination to be the best that allows him to keep his demons at bay, his secrets hidden, and his emotions a non-factor. But the scars of his past keep Ian beholden to them and for the longest time, they have been an albatross around his neck, forcing him to remain at a distance to all people, especially women…until her.

Just like Ian, Grace wears the war wounds of her past and it’s incredibly difficult and at times debilitating to shed those battle scars, but unlike Ian, Grace can’t allow her issues to dictate her life or at least she can try her hardest to push through the pain because as a single mother of three little ones, her focus is on their protection, their happiness, and their growth, which means that she’ll fight with every ounce of her being for them, even if that means sacrificing herself…even if it means asking for help and admitting that she can’t get through this rough patch on her own.

Ian and Grace are definitely bent characters, but I don’t see them as completely  broken ones because they keep pushing forward…they keep working to improve their circumstances, and even though they are struggling to find a way out of their confusing and chaotic present, it’s beyond clear that their professional relationship can’t overpower their personal one, which proves that what’s been building between them is something that they can’t and don’t want to stop, giving Ian something else to focus on and making him realize that Grace and her kids just might be worth risking his livelihood, his solitude, and especially, his heart.

Confessions of the Heart is the perfect series title for these gritty, emotional, and angsty romances that A.L. Jackson crafts for her readers. All of Me is an emotionally charged story filled with suspense and devastation and it speaks to the idea of redemption and the possibility that someone can be redeemed despite a past filled with secrets and sins.

And let me tell you, Ian and Grace more than prove themselves to be worthy of love, happiness, and a happily ever after where all their dreams come true.
