**Disclaimer** I received a digital ARC from A.L. Jackson in exchange for an honest review. The views and opinions that I have expressed here are solely my own and are in no way a representation of the views and/or opinions of the author, publisher, and/or distributor.
A.L. Jackson gives us a little mystery with a whole lot of love in this emotionally explosive standalone, first installment of a brand new series. Show Me the Way is filled with second chances and characters that will leave you wanting more.
“He needed someone to revive his faith just as desperately as I did.
Because looking at him? I suddenly knew he had none of it.
That something had gone dim inside him.
That was the thing about chances.
We didn’t know their outcomes.
If we’d succeed or if we’d fail. It didn’t matter. I had to take a chance on him.”
Rynna has been through a lot. She fled Gingham Lakes at seventeen to get away from toxic people who nearly broke her, but this also meant leaving behind the one person who loved her unconditionally: her grandmother. Now it’s years later and she’s back after her grandmother’s untimely death, wrecked with grief and determined to make her old town home again. What she doesn’t count on though is the stubborn, sexy as heck Rex Gunner and his adorable daughter being her new neighbors. Rynna is smitten with Frankie, Rex’s daughter, immediately but finds Rex himself to be cold and downright mean towards her, and she has no idea why a man would be that emotionally shut off.
Rex is barely hanging on. Being a single dad isn’t always easy but from the start readers see just how much he loves being Frankie’s father. His past has left him shattered and because of his inability to move on from so many different disappointments and hurts, he’s chosen to close himself off from the world, namely relationships. He has his small group of people he knows he can depend on and that’s it for him; Frankie takes the rest. She’s the only one who will ever come close to having his heart again.
“I don’t have any chances left to take… I’ve already used up all the ones I’ve been given, and if I take anything else? I’d be nothing but a thief.”
Rynna doesn’t give up so easily though when it comes to Rex. Somthing inside of him calls to something inside of her and she’s determined to chip away at all of the angry, bittter, and scared pieces of him to find the man underneath. And just when Rex lets down his walls his past come back with a vengence, but it’s not only his past and his wounds at the forefront. Both Rex and Rynna must fight to save themselves as well as the little piece of perfection they’ve found in each other.
Show Me the Way is amazingly well-written and so heartwarming. I do believe this has to be one of Jackson’s best stories yet!!! The plot is perfectly paced and characters are easy to connect with. This book has set the standard for the rest of the series and I’m so, so excited to see where Jackson takes it!!!
