Woah buddy. This story is not for the faint of heart or the queasy stomach! It’s a hard to read story, full of angst,full of hatred, and full of sadness. Don’t fret, there is a light at the end of the tunnel but it is only a pin hole of light for a good majority of the story.
This was a good story but a hard read. It took longer than I planned to read the story, partly because the nature of the story, partly because I had to convince myself to come back to read more. I was torn during the first half of the story. It was written well, had great detail, and was very realistic. That being said, the nature of the book was a lot darker than I normally read.
That being said, the second half the story is much brighter, has a lighter feel, and starts to exude some happiness and sunshine. You feel the love and actions are heartfelt. It almost drips happiness. I feel like I need to mention that it does end with a HEA. This is for those that need that in a story and might shy away from my paragraph above.
Details and descriptions were very well written. Sometimes it felt a little too realistic but I think it was absolutely necessary to get the correct feel across to the readers. It needed to be real and it needed to be over detailed. I think had it not been, it wouldn’t have stressed the importance of the scenes. So while it might have been a little too much at the time, when I look back at the story as a whole, I applaud the author and think she did a phenomenal job.
I do absolutely suggest reading this story. I also suggest once you finish reading it, give yourself a few hours, days, weeks, whatever it takes, to reflect back on the story, and the work the author put into writing it. I think by doing that you will appreciate the story and the work that it took to write it.

Enter into his life the beautiful Summer - with a name like that she can bring some light into the haunting darkness around Jackson.
This book will haunt you and devour your soul. I couldn't stop reading. I didn't even sleep more 2 hours because I had to see where this story went.
I cried and at one point just put it down because of how emotional I felt. But like I said I couldn't not finish their story. It needed to be heard.
This is definitely one of my favorite books of all time.
Summer is mourning the loss of her husband. She leans on her best friend Jackson for support.
Jackson is an incredible story. It shows how two broken individuals can overcome such hardships. It takes hard work, friendship and love. It is such a touching story.
My favorite quote is "Pain is good .... if something beautiful comes out of it!!!"
In one way he was so vulnerable, in another so brutal. He was a contradiction.
I chuckled bitterly at the checkout— my basket was full of the usual break-up crap. I had two tubs of ice cream, a bottle of wine, and chocolate.
You know what we could do? We could pretend that we’re practicing to get pregnant…
Jackson is the type of book I generally avoid yet I felt the lure and sirens’ call of an intriguing and emotive Tracie Podger story. I needed to take occasional reading breaks and put my Kindle down, as the narrative was an angsty, gritty, dark, disquieting, sensual, and cringe-worthy tale that was several steps outside of my comfort zone. Yet while I was fraught with tension and found my shoulders in my ears a few times, the end result was well worth my anguish and inner conflict. The character of Jackson had been severely traumatized throughout his childhood, which resulted in disturbing and self-destructive behaviors that only worsened and mushroomed unabated into adulthood. I experienced a full spectrum of feels while reading as in turn I was fascinated, frustrated, repulsed, intrigued, distressed, relieved and elated. Tracie Podger seems remarkably adept in excavating intense emotion from her readers as well as her broken characters before yielding their transformation and redemption. Angst will never be among my favorite things but I am willing to cowgirl-up under the right circumstances, and I am ever so glad I decided this was one of them.
