When we Collide by A.L. Jackson Review Tour Stop

From the bestselling author of Pulled and Take This Regret comes a gripping new tale of loss and love.

William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s going to give.

Maggie had lived her entire life without hope until one man showed her what it meant to be loved. He’d been her light in a lifetime of darkness. Six years ago, that darkness stole him away. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.

When the family William left behind is struck by tragedy, he is called back to the one place he’s sworn to never return to again.

In a moment that will change his life forever, William comes face to face with the girl who, with one look, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they’d once believed they’d have.

Now William is ready to fight to take back what had been stolen from him six years before.
But he never imagined what that fight might cost him.

A.L. Jackson gives you an intimate look into the lives of a family bound by an unseen connection in this new contemporary romance

I knew from the beginning that this book was going to be an emotionally charged read and so I found myself preparing for it. The opening dedication says it all. "Because it shouldn't hurt to be touched."

This book talks about a sensitive topic with me, having suffered from abuse myself, so I always find it harder to enjoy these books because the author can get it wrong on so many levels.

A.L. Jackson is not such an author, with the skill to write so beautifully and drag such emotion out of the depths of your soul, you can't help but fall in love with the character's she creates.

It definitely is not the sweet rose colored glass romance that most think of when it comes to a love story, instead it is intense, dark and real. Maggie's struggles with abuse through her entire life leaves her damage and it is amazing to think about the guys that are willing to fight past all that baggage to save the girl they find themselves loosing their heart to.

I love the villain of the this book. His background and character was so developed that it had me tip toeing around my house for fear of finding him in my living room and invoking his wrath.

This tear jerking novel will quickly become a re-read that you pass along from generation to generation in hopes of preparing women to be strong and avoid such a cycle of abuse.

If you are not already a fan of this author, then this book will make you one.

I love the cover art, it is gorgeous and it gives nothing about the book away.

5 out of 5 Raven's!
