5 “paging doctor knightly” Stars!
Seriously sexy, deeply romantic and powerfully moving, Follow Me Back is a profound, beautifully told story about moving on and holding tight to what is really important in life. I couldn’t get enough of this story. A.L. Jackson poured her heart and soul into this one!
Kale Bryant, moving on from emergency room doctor, is starting a new position in a new office, but first, he’s out for a night of fun and celebration with his best friends and maybe a one nighter like he’s prone to do because the one thing he does not do, is attachments. In fact, he’s committed to not being committed at all. However, the moment he sees the beautiful redhead across the bar, he knows things are about to change.
Hope Masterson is trying to separate herself from her past. She’s committed to starting over, hope always on the horizon for a “someday” but until then, she’ll do whatever it takes to keep her son safe, happy and alive. The moment she sees Kale Bryant, she can’t take her eyes off him, but “someday” can’t happen yet. Her life is too complicated. Her focus needs to be on what matters. But when her path keeps crossing with Kale’s, their forbidden attraction can’t be denied.
Both Kale and Hope were keeping secrets, both have painful pasts and both are just trying to get from one day to the next. But where Kale was fiercely guarded, knowing his failures ruined his picture perfect future, Hope was wholeheartedly open and optimistic for a fulfilling future, when she had every reason not to be. I loved both their characters for different reasons. And Evan ... oh sweet Evan, was a darling, adorable, loving, charismatic boy who pulled this whole story into focus.
Told in alternating POV’s, I enjoyed getting to know every facet of their characters as each layer was peeled back, revealing depth, heart and compassion. Kale was super sexy, incredibly sweet and definitely the hero he claimed not to be. Hope was a well rounded, beautiful soul, in and out who loved with everything she had. Not to mention, these two were intensely sexy together, their chemistry and slow build to romance expertly done!
I enjoyed how this novel unfolded. The author did an incredible job lining up all the pieces of the puzzle and letting them fall slowly, sprinkling the clues throughout, so you never really knew the full story until the climax.
And that ending? Perfect!
The Wrap Up:
This was a really well told story, full of delightful characters, touching scenes and a romance that was all consuming. I’m not going to lie. I caught myself tearing up more than once, laughing out loud at Kale and his sexy confidence, grinning from ear to ear at Kale and Hope’s playfulness, holding my breath, my heart pounding when things started to fall apart and ultimately cheering for these two characters to find their happily ever after.
Utterly sexy, emotionally captivating and perfectly written, Follow Me Back has all the “feels”!
A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR...
My loves - I am so beyond thrilled to finally get to share Kale and Hope's story with you in FOLLOW ME BACK! Writing this book was a labor of love, and after everything, I think it might be my favorite book I've ever written. It's super sexy and swoony, sad and sweet, and just filled my heart up so full there is no chance I will ever forget the way these characters made me feel. I hope you fall in love with them the same way I did! Enjoy! xoxo - Amy
