"Come to Me Recklessly was everything I've come to expect from A.L. Jackson: a truly amazing love story that draws you in and pulls at your heartstrings. This second-chance love story was absolutely beautiful. ~The Book Nuts

"I absolutely love reading books by A.L. Jackson. The impacts her intensely emotional journeys have on me are everlasting and can never be replicated. What she creates with each unique story continuously shocks me with how powerful written words can truly be. ~Best Sellers Best Stellars

"Oh...my...gosh. I am suffering from the MOTHER OF ALL BOOK HANGOVERS! Wow. Come to Me Recklessly by AL Jackson was pure perfection!!! A true work of art!" ~HEA Bookshelf

I have been waiting so long to read Christopher and Samantha's story and now that I've read it I feel like I want to erase my memory so that I can read it all over again for the first time! We first meet Christopher in book 1 of The Closer to You series, Come to Me Quietly, which is Aly and Jared's story. He's a secondary character but we get enough of him there to know that he is a party animal who is basically a manwh0re with a different girl every night. Come to Me Recklessly can be read as a standalone, but if you haven't read books 1 and 2 already, I highly recommend reading this series in order, you will get a more rounded vision of the supporting cast of characters in Christopher's book.

The story is told in alternating points of view, both past and present between Christopher and Samantha, so we get their feelings and emotions first hand. Samantha was raised in a strict household, being a Pastor's daughter. She and Christopher dated in high school but her family did not approve of Christopher at all, feeling he was a bad influence on her. Christopher is trying to deal with the aftershocks of his best friend Jared spiraling out of control from a family tragedy. Coupling this with outside influences and miscommunications, Christopher and Samantha are pulled apart and go their separate ways.

Fast forward 7 years and Samantha has just become a teacher's aide and is living with her boyfriend. She tries desperately to convince herself she is happy and doing what is expected of her. She runs into Christopher's sister Aly and her world comes crashing to a halt. All of the feelings she has tried so hard to bury for the past 7 years come bubbling up and even though she knows she shouldn't, she quickly becomes friends with Aly again and immerses herself in Aly's family.

4.5 stars. The first two books in this series are my absolute favorite of A.L. Jackson’s work, so naturally I had high expectations for Christopher’s story. I am not surprised that I loved every single page of Come to Me Recklessly. Once again I was captivated by Jackson’s gorgeous writing and ability to make me feel the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. She is a gifted storyteller who draws you immediately into her characters’ lives and never lets you go. I adore second chance romances, especially ones filled with the heightened emotions of this one, and the delicious slow burn between Christopher and Samantha made this book one to remember.

In Aly and Jared’s story we saw that Christopher slept around and was not interested in a relationship. Come to Me Recklessly helped us understand why he was that way. I admit that he didn’t win any points with me early on in the book. Christopher was a wonderful brother, uncle, and best friend. However, the way he treated Samantha in the beginning was infuriating. What had she done to him to fill him with so much hate? As we learned more about his past with Samantha and saw a shift in his actions, I felt myself melting. She had meant everything to him and still did. There was a depth and beauty to their love that moved me and stole my heart.

I spent a good deal of this book wanting to jump into the pages and give Samantha a big hug. Christopher had absolutely devastated her, shattering her young heart and irrevocably shaping her future. Although she was in a committed relationship (with a controlling jerk), she had never even remotely felt the some passion as she had with Christopher. Her internal struggle was palpable. Samantha was still in love with Christopher, but how could she trust him again?

There are two sides to every story… two versions of the truth. When it comes to Christopher & Samantha’s story, there are also two hearts that have been broken… two lives forever changed. But neither Christopher nor Samantha has the whole story… neither one knows the whole truth. After years apart, the couple’s paths once again cross, forcing them to finally confront their painful past. Their tumultuous reunion raises to the surface all of the buried love, hurt and pain that years of separation did little to erase. But facing the past is the only way to move forward—the only way to mend their broken hearts.

Christopher Moore is a loving, caring brother and a loyal, devoted friend. But when it comes to relationships, Christopher guards his heart at all costs. Non-committal one-night stands has been Christopher’s mantra for years. Fearful of opening himself up to further hurt, Christopher’s behavior often paints him as an arrogant, insensitive jerk. So, when it comes to Christopher, I often waiver between love and hate. One minute I love him, and in the next, I just want to strangle him! Christopher Moore is one frustrating, lovable mess!!

Leading up to this third book in AL Jackson’s Closer To You series, we (the reader) already know a little bit about Christopher’s history with his high school girlfriend, Samantha. But just like Christopher’s sister, Aly and his best friend, Jared, we don’t know the entire truth behind the couple’s breakup. As it turns out, neither do Christopher or Samantha. Crucial facts have yet to be revealed, leaving us all very much in the dark, stumbling along to discover the truth.
