This was a good book but not great. It was very repetitive to the point of OMG we get it already. Yes, what Jared went through was horrible, devastating and beyond what anyone should ever have to endure but my God, we got it after the 5000th time reading it. There needed to be something other than how much Jared loved Ali and how much pain he was in and how much she loved him and would always be there for him. We needed more on the families and how they were involved in all of this. So, this book was good but it was definitely missing something major and I felt kind of unfulfilled. I'm glad I read it, I really am but this is definitely not a series that I would hurry to read again. Good, but not great 😥!!!

Some people were born to write, and A.L. Jackson is most definitely one of them. I am still kicking myself for not reading any of her books sooner. Come to Me Softly was a beautiful conclusion to Aly and Jared’s story. This was one of those books that actually pained me when I had to put it down. Honestly just thinking about Aly and Jared’s journey has me tear-eyed. I am so glad that this was a two-book series as there was clearly so much more to their story. Jackson’s writing was amazing. I am absolutely in awe of the way in which she weaved the story together with such beauty and emotion. I felt everything Aly and Jared did and found myself very invested in their lives and future.

This was a story about facing your demons, learning to forgive, embracing love, and having hope for the future. Aly was truly an incredible woman. Not only did she love Jared with all of her heart, she also supported him unconditionally and had faith in him when he couldn’t have any in himself. She never wavered in her belief in him or her love for him, not for one single second. At the same time Aly was wise enough to understand how destructive Jared’s demons were and to know that he had to face them in order for them to have a future together. I greatly admired her courage and belief that they were meant to be.

Jared continued to break my heart in this book. His love and devotion for Aly were so palpable, and I knew he would do anything for her. Although he still struggled with the notion that he was worth of the Aly’s incredible love, he was committed to providing for her and making her dreams come true. Unfortunately the one thing Jared needed to do to help them move forward was the most difficult and painful one.

I don't even know where to begin. My thoughts are so jumbled because I'm feeling so much and I'm so in love with this book. With AL Jackson. With Jared. With all the characters. I can't get my thoughts straight. All I can do is pour my heart out and try to put it all into words, something coherent.

You know the words have bled from the farthest depths of her soul, for AL Jackson has created literary magic. She was destined in life to bring life to the pages of her stories. To breathe fire and passion and raw emotion into everything she creates. Each word poured onto each page drags you through the darkest depths of misery, sorrow, passion, fear, angst, and the brightest realms of love....you feel. She makes you feel each word, each sentence, each page like a punch to the gut. She wrecks you, leaves you shattered right along with the characters. Sitting in awe and wonder at how someone can make you feel so much through words alone. She drags you under with emotion. Leaves you in her clutches, at her mercy, for she is the only one able to release you from the darkness and bring you the light.

I'm gutted. Wrecked. Ruined. Jared is perfection. Although both POVs are exquisitely written, nothing compares to the thoughts and words from Jared. It's as if AL's writing transforms when Jared's thoughts are given a voice, a page of expression. With Aly's words you can sense all of her emotions, sympathize and relate. But with Jared, they are brought to life, making you actually feel, feel them as they are your own; splintering your soul because each uttered thought and word is filled with such anguish, such passion that it steals your breath. His passion for Aly builds you up and then you are shattered once more when you are reminded of the hatred he feels for himself.

If I thought I’d already had my heart ripped open by Aly and Jared’s story, I was sorely mistaken. In this book they were truly tried, tested, and torn apart as both individuals and as a couple. Forced to face their uncertain futures and the past that constantly clings to their present, Aly and Jared’s journey is filled with overwhelming emotion and incredible power. A.L. Jackson truly has an astonishing gift, generating an outpouring of feelings that will both break you down and build you up. I could not envision a more beautiful and meaningful conclusion to Aly and Jared’s story.

Aly simply blew me away in this book. A.L. Jackson has given this character such incredible depth and immeasurable strength, standing next to Jared, giving him patience and support while he battled him demons. Her growth from the quiet, unsure girl who longed for the boy she once knew to the fiercely protective woman fighting unwaveringly for the man she loves is completely enthralling. Jared astounded me in his own right. As his past and present unavoidably collide and he is no longer able to hide how haunted he is, we get to see him in the most raw and vulnerable of forms. A.L. Jackson unravels this man completely, leaving no emotion or fear left undiscovered, allowing me to accept and fall in love with this character completely.

There were so many places in this story where I simply felt everything that was happening. The direction Aly and Jared’s story headed was dark and twisted and incredibly perfect. The imperfections of their love gave them an authenticity that couldn’t be denied. I loved that A.L. Jackson allowed her characters to grow so much in this book by forcing them to face the worst in them. Come to Me Softly is a striking reminder of the ugliness we carry within us and the never-ending battle to seek the beautiful. This book was breathtaking, honest, earth-shattering, and real. It rocked me to my core as I found myself consumed by A.L. Jackson’s world.
