Just like the words from the Carly Simon song state "Nobody Does It Better," AL Jackson has written a beautiful, emotional, and gripping story of redemption and true love. Pieces of US is the 3rd book in the Confessions of the Heart series but can certainly be read as a stand alone. What I love the most about all 3 of these books is that even though you can read just one, it is so heartwarming to be able to follow up with updates on the characters in the other books. You first meet Mack in book one and you know right away that he is a loyal friend who would do anything for those he loves but you don't really know the whole back story until you get to his book, Pieces of Us. Here you truly learn just how loyal and lovable he is and his devotion to protecting those he loves the most. Mack and Izzy's story is sweet, sad, beautiful and happy and hopeful all at the same time. AL Jackson writes the cutest children's characters and the sexiest and strongest adult characters that have you cheering them on the entire story. I am definitely a huge AL Jackson fan but honestly how can you not be when her stories are all just so dang good. If you haven't read her work then you really need to.
