Come to Me Softly by AL Jackson
From the New York Times bestselling author of Come to Me Quietly comes a scorching new adult romance in the Closer to You series.
A second chance at life…
A second chance at love…
Jared Holt never thought he deserved either—until he found both in the arms of Aly Moore. Aly has loved Jared for as long as she can remember, and she’s more than ready for the future they’re making together. But Jared can’t help remembering his own family. And he’ll never forgive himself for what happened to them. How can he allow himself the very happiness he once destroyed?
To live a life worthy of Aly, Jared knows he has to stop running and finally put his past to rest. But when he decides to face his demons head on, he encounters more than he bargained for: a dangerous mix of jealousy, lies, and dishonest intentions. When those intentions threaten Aly, Jared loses all control, giving into the rage that earned him his bad boy reputation years before. And he’ll fight to protect her no matter what it costs…even if he destroys himself in the process.

Aleena Moore is content with her life. She has goals and dreams and an easy smile. She also has a secret she holds locked inside.
Jared Holt believes he doesn’t deserve to love or be loved. He destroys everything he touches. Haunted by the mistake that shattered his life, he’s fled from the memory of that pain.
Jared doesn’t know why he’s compelled to return, but finds himself drawn back to the place where it all began. The exact place where it ended. When he runs into his childhood best friend, Aleena’s older brother Christopher, he agrees to share Christopher and Aleena’s apartment while he looks for a place of his own.
Aleena is no longer the little girl Jared remembers from his past and evokes feelings in him he never wanted to feel again. Terrified of destroying her, he fights to keep her away. But her touch is something he can’t resist—the touch that sealed his fate.
Their pasts are intertwined and their futures uncertain. The only truths they know are the secrets they whisper in the night.
“Loving someone is one of the biggest chances we ever take. I once considered it unfair because it’s rarely a conscious decision we make. It’s something that blossoms slow or hits us hard, something that stirs and builds gradually, or something that shocks us with its sudden intensity. And sometimes it’s something that’s been a part of us our entire lives. But almost always, it’s inevitable. This….this was inevitable.”
Come To Me Softly will devastate you, and captivate you. A love story about second chances, forgiveness, and healing that is so hauntingly beautiful and poignant that you will feel it in the deepest part of your soul.
Jared is broken, so broken and feels he deserves nothing good, and because of that, he ruins, destroys, and runs from all that he feels he is undeserving of, yet he……wants.
~ Jared ~ “Since I was a little boy, this has beat for you. Even before I knew what it meant. Now I know it means everything.”
Aly has been in love with Jared since they were little, and she fights with everything she has and all that she is to help him see the good. The push and pull between Jared and Aly, the angst and emotion that is so flawlessly written, will have your pulse racing and your heart breaking and will have you wondering if you will you will ever feel whole and complete right up to the very end.
