R E V I E W ➠ Say It’s Forever by A.L. Jackson

(Redemption Hills #2)


Jud Lawson found me stranded in the rain.
Broken down on the side of the road in a deserted neighborhood with my piece of crap car.
I wasn’t looking for a hero, and definitely not one who looks like him.
An obscenely hot, mountain-of-a-man who screams danger.
But I have little choice other than climbing onto the back of his bike.
One look at Salem Aguilar, and I’m hooked.
The girl is devastation wrapped in a black, seductive bow.
A knockout.
A dream.
Turns out, she needs a job, and I need the help.
Now I have a vixen strutting around my shop, and I’m the fool who’s itching to reach out and take what he can’t have.
But neither of us can ignore the burning attraction.
The fire that leads to a kiss.
A kiss that has us falling into my bed.
The connection that has me wanting the one thing I’d never thought I could have again.
Because monsters like me don’t deserve love.
Only Salem has a secret, too.
She’s been running for years, and her past just caught up to us…

RELEASE DATE: March 28, 2022

“It’s all I see when I look at you. Beauty. You’re the definition of it. You don’t have to be shy. Don’t have to be afraid. You’re safe with me, darlin’.”


Not my first read by the author, she is one of my TOP FAVES and I have already read the first book in this series. This one is the broody older brother & and single-mom. Perfect chaotic pair!

Jud us broody, large, sexy and carries a chip on his shoulder. He is challenged by a little thing. The heroine is equally broken and like a scared little puppy. She stands her ground and stands up to Jud who finds it amusing but also respects her for it. Their meeting maybe wasn’t so great but in the end it turned out to be the best rainy day.

This book was devastatingly beautiful!

While this book is detailed, beautifully broken, exciting, butterfly in your tummy feels…these two, the angst and the pain, you just can’t help but feel it all. I did not see any turn coming, the chemistry between these two is like a fire burning but in the middle of an ocean. Jud isn’t a man who lost everything, Salem not only lost everything but mostly part of herself. On the run and always looking over her shoulder. She moves to the same city as her grandmother and her brother. She end’s up getting a job at Jud’s shop to pay off a debt but in reality she really did want to be closer to him, something about him. She just sees him like no one else. But the past is never too far away, and when it comes barging through it’s a conclusion no one saw coming. The betrayal. The hurt. The Freedom. Jud truly is the best anti-hero there is and Salem is the perfect match!

Two broken souls open their hearts for one final magical turn.
