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.

Jackson is a fantastic book. Seriously every page was captivating. This book contains a topic which will not be easily read for everyone, that said it is handled extremely well and for those who do read Jackson it will touch your heart!
Jackson is an amazing story in which we see two people fighting their own demons as well as trying to help each other to deal and heal. The question is can they overcome all their demons or will some be too much too handle?
I will not allow myself to discuss the storyline in too much detail for fear of writing spoilers for those that are yet to read Jackson. What I will say is that this story is a journey full of emotion, secrets, guilt and discovery. It will have you completely invested in in these characters and their overall journey.
Jackson and Summer are both suffering for different reasons. As much as these two have been friends for a long time they both have things the other doesn’t know and that is slowly beginning to eat away at them. The two can help each other heal but the road to healing is far from smooth.
This story may contain subject matter that can be hard for some people to read, even I found it difficult at times, but T. Podger has written it extremely well and has kept it incredibly real. T. Podger has dealt with the issues that do exist in the real world, and that makes it even easier to relate to. T. Podger has taken some very real, very painful and heart breaking times and has created a very addictive story, that is enjoyable, heart breaking and enlightening to read.
T. Podger’s writing style is as always a pleasure to read and sucks you into the story alongside the characters. I was pulled into Jackson and Summer’s world from the very beginning, and I was held there until the very end. The emotion T. Podger has put into this book comes through from both the characters. Every ounce of happiness and pain these two went through I experienced with them as though it was my own. I know these two had their claws in my heart because I actually felt the point at which my heart broke.
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Jackson. I can definitely see a book hangover for a while. Just whilst I try and repair my heart. Well done T. Podger for creating another compelling story that I’ll be reading time and time again!
This was a very emotional story. I loved that there was so much more to Jackson then meets the eye. This was a story of two broken souls that use each other to heal. It’s crazy because I think these two loved each other long before it was acceptable but they remained good friends. I am not a big fan of Summer’s. I tried but she just didn’t cut it for me but my heart broke at the beginning for her because of that douche of a husband she had.
Now, Jackson, on the other hand I adore him in a unusual way. Of course he is broken so I want to fix him but the stuff he has been through, well I think he has just found a way to cope. Except he really didn’t did he?!!! I will say I dislike his father very much. And the whole Honey thing, I totally get it unlike Summer did.
Going into this book for some reason I imagined something different. But I rode with it and continued on. The beginning just didn’t pull me in and then I began to skim and just could not really get invested. I should have been way more emotional then I was and it is not lack of this authors talent. Because her words spelled it out but I think the plot just didn’t connect me or maybe it was just one little thing off. It does sadden me because this author is one of my favorites!!
There are a lot of good reviews for this book so I think you all should give it a go and let me know how you felt. And honestly I think I will come back with a whole new set of eyes in a couple weeks and try again. All the wordage was there and I did feel things I just wasn’t invested.
**I received this book as an ARC and in return gave my honest review*+
