From award-winning fanfic phenomenon Sophie Jackson, the third novel in the sexy and emotionally intense blockbuster A Pound of Flesh series.
Life in New York for ex-con Riley Moore is pretty damn good, until a call from his mother shatters the calm: his father has suffered his second heart attack in two years and is in a critical condition. Leaving everything behind, Riley flies home to Michigan for the first time in five years to support his mother and do his best to make amends with his father. He also tries not to think about Lexie Pierce, the only girl he ever truly cared about, and who broke his heart.
When they inevitably meet, memories of their love make Riley yearn to reconnect, despite the pain they both suffered. Though she's wary, and has a secret she’s hidden from him for five years, Lexie has little willpower when it comes to Riley and she agrees. Besides, after all that has gone before, she owes it to both of them to find out if they can love each other again.
Can they both overcome their sorrow and secrets and finally share their life together?
Love Sophie Jackson, huge fan. Another amazing story from her. This is one of the sweetest love stories I have ever read. I am a true believer in soul mates and reading this made me realize yet again why I believe so much. Riley and Lexie are perfect. Meant for each other, soul mates, each other's other half. So many road blocks come into play. I'm not going to lie, I hated Lexie through some of this story. I won't give away why, but I hated her. She grew on me toward the end and everyone makes mistakes but geeze! The mistake she made was almost... Almost unforgivable. In fact, I'm not sure I forgave her yet.. But I'm stubborn. Riley is a good person. He was hurt so so deeply and I was impressed with the way he handled things. This is a must read for 2016. It's so emotional. I felt the pain each character was going through and I cried, wanted to scream, smack Lexie, smack some sense into Riley.. But I also laughed.. A lot. Rileys brothers are hilarious! Take my word and one click! You won't regret it!
