From award-winning fanfic phenomenon Sophie Jackson, the third novel in the sexy and emotionally intense blockbuster A Pound of Flesh series.
Life in New York for ex-con Riley Moore is pretty damn good, until a call from his mother shatters the calm: his father has suffered his second heart attack in two years and is in a critical condition. Leaving everything behind, Riley flies home to Michigan for the first time in five years to support his mother and do his best to make amends with his father. He also tries not to think about Lexie Pierce, the only girl he ever truly cared about, and who broke his heart.
When they inevitably meet, memories of their love make Riley yearn to reconnect, despite the pain they both suffered. Though she's wary, and has a secret she’s hidden from him for five years, Lexie has little willpower when it comes to Riley and she agrees. Besides, after all that has gone before, she owes it to both of them to find out if they can love each other again.
Can they both overcome their sorrow and secrets and finally share their life together?
A powerful new voice in modern romance, Sophie Jackson has crafted a passionate love story with unforgettable characters that will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page.

 

Review

This was such a beautiful book. I have enjoyed each of the Pound Of Flesh installments. While they all can be read as stand alone, I like reading things in order so I recommend that.

Riley was one I was waiting to find out more about. I’m glad he got his story and from his POV. He has one true love and one he never got over, Lexi. She broke his heart 5yrs ago and he still is not over her. Getting called back to his childhood home, he knows he is going to run into her.

The flash backs were a wonderful addition to the story and I think were needed. It helped show the heartbreaking past these two have and just how much they have been through.

This 2nd chance romance is full of angst, tears, and even a few smiles. Their journey to learning to trust again and finding peace is one I recommend to everyone.
