WICKEDLY SEXY, BEAUTIFULLY ROMANTIC AND DEVASTATINGLY TRAGIC!
May 6, 2018
When it comes to tortured souls, Oliver Preston wears his like a coat of armor. But even his defensive shield is no protection against the honey-haired temptress, whose mesmerizing eyes had, long-ago, captured Ollie’s heart. And she’s been holding it hostage ever since.
She is the woman who has come to mean “everything,” yet remains a torturous reminder of all that’s been lost and all that can never be.
“Nikki. F***ing. Walters.”
She invades his thoughts by day; occupies his dreams by night.
“The Bane of his existence”
The girl, a constant taunt.
A beacon of light against all of Ollie’s dark
As Gingham Lakes’ self-proclaimed matchmaker extraordinaire—aka, the orgasm fairy—Nikki Walters flits through life, spreading love wherever she goes. Boasting a bright smile and spouting fun quips, she’s been dubbed the fun-loving friend with nary a care in the world. But appearances are quite often deceiving--for there is so much more to Nikki than what she dares to let the outside IN to see.
If Nikki is the bane of Ollie’s existence, then Ollie is the guardian of hers. He’s her dark knight; her ferocious protector; her beautiful beast. He’s the man she gave her heart to, who tossed it back, tattered and torn. But when Nikki’s apartment is trashed and her well-being dangles in the balance, its Ollie to the rescue, set in his resolve to keep her safe. Wrapping Nikki under his protective wing, Ollie moves her to his place above Olive’s bar. Although the temporary move becomes a Nikki’s silent comfort, Ollie’s heated perusal keeps her teetering on the edge. As the tension rises and their desire heats, their new arrangement soon translates to a slow-burning torture of the very best kind.
It’s been nearly 14 years since Ollie’s sister, Sydney, went missing; 14 years, since Ollie lost a piece of his soul. Now, as the anniversary of Sydney’s disappearance approaches, Ollie must prepare to confront the demons of his past--a muddled task that proves as difficult as it is necessary, as he finally reaches for a future with Nikki. With continued threats and a past that doesn’t stay buried, “Lead Me Home” takes the reader on an unforgettable, darkly suspenseful journey that leads to answers to long-awaited questions. And, all the while, a new beginning for this couple hovers in the distance--close enough to touch, but just barely out of reach.
As the third (and final) installment to AL Jackson’s Fight for Me Series, “Lead Me Home” wraps up this series in a heavier shroud that only Ollie’s story could command. It’s suspenseful, shocking, devastating and tragic. It’s also wickedly sexy, beautifully romantic, and boasts lots of fun & flirt, while the requisite HEA is delivered in the most perfectly delicious way.
While “Lead Me Home” is written as a standalone, I would highly recommend starting at the beginning. In doing so, a proper perspective would be gained and additional insight can be gathered about Ollie, Nikki, and their endearing circle of friends—friends that I’ve come to know and love; friends to whom I hate to bid farewell. But, alas, I must. So, in parting, I offer my final kudos to AL Jackson for writing such amazing, colorful characters that have carved a permanent home within my heart.
