Book Description

From the acclaimed bestselling author of Lost to You and When We Collide comes a New Adult novel of one woman’s obsession: a man who’s as passionate as he is elusive—and as tempting as he is trouble…



Aleena Moore is haunted by Jared Holt. It’s been six years since she’s seen her brother’s best friend, the self-destructive bad boy she secretly loved in high school. As the years pass, she knows it’s time to move on. Time to decide between a practical nursing degree and her true dream as an artist. Time to get over Jared and give another guy a chance…



Just when she opens her heart to her friend, Gabe, Aly returns home to find Jared sleeping on her couch. The teenage boy she loved has grown into a man she can’t resist. Covered in tattoos and lost in rage, he’s begging to be saved from his demons—the memories of the day he destroyed his family. As the two reconnect, their passion is hot enough to torch Aly’s judgment. But can she risk her future for a man who lives on the edge of destruction?

It's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of A.L. Jackson's books. The first book I read Pulled stayed with me and to this day I still remember how hauntingly beautiful the story and her writing was. Her books have never let me down and Come to Me Quietly just reminded me of how amazing of a storyteller she is.

This book is deep... the storyline and the characters have so much depth at times you feel like you are drowning with them in their sorrows. As with all her books I was sucked into an emotional battle.

Jared is BROKEN! I'm a sucker for the broken boys, but I have to admit I didn't love him at first. It took me some time to get used to his character. As the story developed and I heard his full story I couldn't help but fall in love with this broken man. He just needs someone to help him out of the black hole of self destruction and that person happens Aleena Moore. She's a light in the darkness for Jared but he's too messed up over his past and the mistakes he's made to let her become anything more then another mistake. Your heart will BLEED for him and what he's been through. I cried and cried when I learned his full story.

Aleena or Aly, is one strong character. She has been hiding ever since the day Jared was stripped from their lives. Hiding behind the pain and hiding behind her secrets. It took a while to get to why Aly let this affect her so much. I mean friends come and go it's part of life, but this was so much more to her. She never really let anyone in, as much as people tried she was truly closed off. I know that she was in love with Jared when they were children so there had to be more to the story and oh boy was there EVER! I didn't see that twist coming which is rare for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consuming January 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Come to Me Queitly by A. L. Jackson
Review by Mary Beth
5/5 Stars

I am an avid reader and I normally consume books pretty quickly, but this book took me longer than usual. Not because there was anything wrong with it, because trust me there wasn't, but I gave myself over to this book. I needed to make sure that when I was able to read this story that I had no other distractions, so late night reads when everyone else went to sleep was the best time (which was very fitting).

This book frustrated the hell out of me one second and tore me wide open the next. I was frustrated because I am impatient and this well when you read it you'll understand that frustration perfectlty. It tore me open because I felt so much for these characters. I felt it all their love, their pain and everything in between.

I LOVED Aly!! She is beautiful inside and out, she is such a caring and kind person who loves so hardand unselfishley that it consumes and saves. Now Jared, hmm Jared. I just want to hug him not out of pitty but just because he needs one. Of course he would probably push me off and curse at me but that's fine, I can totally deal with it. Oh and the fact that he is bad biy sexy doesn't hurt.

Ah the bad boy with the troubled past book. Yes we all have read them and you may have read stories that were kind of similar to this one. So let me put this out there, you have NOT read this one and the way that Ms. Jackson lays it out there is unlike what I have read before. I almost whooped when Jared finially woke up and the end well it was perfect for them. I cannot wait to read the next chapter in this series so I can see the growth and love that we saw in this story and get to see how many of the questions I had throughout get answered.

Everything had changed even while everything seemed to remain the same.
WOW!!! This is the first book I've read by A.L. Jackson and I have become a fan of her writing. Other authors have captured me with their writing, but A.L. Jackson struck a deep emotional cord with Jared and Aly's story in Come to Me Quietly. This is the first time that I have ever felt so emotionally affected by a story, because I felt all of these characters emotions. It felt like I was taking part and living their story. From this day forward I declare myself a fan of A.L. Jackson writing.

I was ready to submerge myself in the dangerous waters that held Jared under. I'd been treading them for too long.
I loved Aly's character from the very beginning of Come to Me Quietly. She is strong, sweet, caring, determined, and I just felt an instant connection with her character. One of the reasons I felt an instant connection with her character is that she likes to draw, which is something that I can relate to. In her drawings Aly holds one of her biggest secrets since she was a little girl. Aly has everything planned for her life but what she doesn't expect is the return of Jared Holt back into her life and she doesn't expect all of the emotional havoc he makes her feel.

I could never outrun it. Could never drown it. I would never forget.
I also loved Jared Holt, because I just love my damaged bad boys. But Jared is different from all of the other damaged bad boys I've read about. Jared has lived through hell from a very young age, and he is still suffering from one haunting memory he can't get out of his head and can't forgive himself for. I am not kidding when I say that Jared's suffering and haunting story got deep inside my heart.

More About the Author

A.L. Jackson first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student. She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life.

Years later, she shared a short story she'd been working on with her two closest friends and, with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel. A.L. now spends her days writing in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three beautiful children. Her favorite pastime is spending time with the ones she loves.
