    Love is simple. It’s life, that’s complicated. So, when you’re on the losing side of love and life offers up a second chance, you grab ahold and hang on tight. You shove aside your fears, bury the hurt, and follow the dictate of your heart. Thus, is the story of Izzy and Mack’s slow-burning romance. In this third and final installment to her Confessions of the Heart series, AL Jackson returns to her earlier roots and delivers an emotion-driven, second-chance romance that will have you reaching for the tissues amidst all the smiles and laughter.

    Presenting a powerfully heartbreaking and compelling premise, along with endearing characters that are sure to capture your heart, “Pieces of Us” is proof positive that AL Jackson is indeed the consummate storyteller. While this author’s signature prose is what always draws me in, it’s her perfectly imperfect heroes that keep me coming back for more. And Maxon Chambers is no exception. Protective, loving, sexy and fierce, Mack is everything I look for in a book boyfriend and a great deal more!

    I am a HUGE DIE HARD fan of A.L. Jackson & her books. Believe it or not but she was a NEW TO BE author a little while ago & I read one book & BAM i read them all!! Therefore so happy to be able to read this master-piece before hand!! Now, this book is #3 and I have read the previous two of course. This is the story of Maxon & Isabel!

    Even from the beginning I went from smiles and laughter at a situation to OH MY HEART! The tension, the words...beautiful but broken. The take-back's through out the story are also heartbreaking but in a beautiful way, more beautiful between the lines kind of way. I was blown back by how much emotion this brought out in me, I was glued to each page, each sentence. I can't express enough how much A.L. Jackson kind of does that to you, her writing style and words will mesmerize you.

    Maxon is a broken soul, from the very beginning. With what he had gone through his childhood well into teenage years, it's no surprise. He now is a tall, strong and sexy man, filled out, gorgeous, a police officer for goodness sake..but still broken. The worst part is that Izzy though her love would be enough back then, what makes her believe that it would ever help out now, as adults.

    Every single character in this (not just the previous book ones) are unique and to each it's own. I love Izzy's parents (her mom is the kind of mom you'd want) the predicament and situations in this are a slow burn, pulling at heart strings moments. It was like riding a roller coaster of emotion, just when you think I'M OKAY I'M OKAY nope, you're not. My love for this story and characters especially Izzy is enormous. The secrets, the nerve wrecking scenes...GAH! I don't want to give out too much BUT you will not see it coming, I'm telling you when it hits you, worse than a sledgehammer. Anguish, passion, heartbreak & conquer!

    I am rating this a 10 PLUS & HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! On my TOP 20119 MUST READ list & a TOP FAVORITE 2019 READ!

    Damn, A.L. Jackson, what have you done to me? I'm ruined now. This has been one of my favorite series ever, and now that I've finished this book about these beautifully broken characters my heart is full, but I'm sad it's over. I'm feeling kinda drunk and gooey, not ready to move on. The

    series has earned a place on my 'favorites' shelf, and I need paperback copies so I can sigh and fondle them on my bookshelf. ❤

    Maxon Chambers (aka Mack) is a

    that I met in the previous books in the series. I've been excited to get to know him and learn his history. I've also been excited to meet the woman that would capture his heart. Now, it's obvious that she wasn't someone in his future, but a woman from his past. As the author took me back in time to when they first met as kids I felt their connection even then. I was pulled into their vortex and totally invested in their whirlwind relationship. I don't blame her for falling for him,

    And I don't blame her for being devastated when he broke up with her,

    Mack has been broken his whole life. He is battling demons that keep him from believing he deserves anything good. And she is exactly that, everything good. He became a cop to try to make a difference, but he can't undo all the bad he's done. He was determined to stay away from her, allowing her to find the happiness she deserves. But, then she went and showed up back in his town, looking even more beautiful than he remembered. Yeah, you know what they say about good intentions, right?

    Page after page of pain and passion, secrets and betrayal, love and laughter, and danger and suspense. To make it through this incredible story I needed tissues, alcohol, a punching bag, a shovel, a do-not-disturb sign, and more tissues. This series needs to be made into a movie. I know it would be amazing, it's already playing in my head and it's beautiful...sigh.

    Deeply romantic, heartbreakingly emotional, and achingly beautiful. Pieces of Us is easily one of my favorite AL Jackson books to date. I fell head over heels for Mack and Izzy's story and I still can't stop thinking about them after finishing.

    It's no secret that I love a good punch to the feels that a second chance romance always brings. But there was something so special about Mack and Izzy's story. I don't even know how to begin to describe it, but it felt almost electric. I always knew there was some darkness in Mack's past. He's been such a solid presence in his friend's lives. But beneath that cop exterior, still waters run deep. This is a man with deep emotional scars and demons from his past that continue to haunt his present

    Izzy has loved Maxon "Mack" Chambers since they were kids. Him, the boy on the wrong side of the tracks. Her, the sweet dreamer that thought she can save him. But then everything they built came tumbling down around Izzy and she had no choice but to run. Now she's back and has no desire to see the man that broke her heart. But things never quite go as you intended.

    I really don't want to tell you much more about this story, but prepare yourself for one emotional ride. I couldn't bear to put this book down for even a second, utterly desperate for another piece of Izze and Mack's past. I was dying to know how it all fell apart and even more desperate to see how they would rebuild it all.

    Mack is one of my favorite heroes in this series. And I though I loved Ian. But man, nothing compares to the way that this man loves. His soul is so achingly broken and yet he yearns for Izzy and everything that they lost. Izzy is a heroine that's impossible not to love. She's this delicate combination of vulnerability and strength. She's survived so much pain in her life and yet she holds strong. She never gave up on Mack when they were kids. Her unique view of the world and wonderment were extremely endearing. Izzy as an adult is even more so.

    I loved everything about this story. Two secondary characters in particular. These two completely owned my heart. I loved them so much.

    If you're looking for a beautiful romance that will break you and then put you back together in the best of ways, you seriously can't go wrong with this book. I can't recommend it enough!

    Anyone who has ever followed my reviews would know I am a huge A.L. Jackson fan and would read absolutely anything she produces. I have been waiting for Mack’s story for what feels like a life-time, so you can imagine my elation when he finally entered my life.

    was phenomenal and I would expect nothing less from such an amazingly talented story teller. The plot drew me in instantaneously and kept me captivated throughout, and in true Jackson fashion, the writing was like pure poetry

    Anyone who has ever followed my reviews would know I am a huge A.L. Jackson fan and would read absolutely anything she produces. I have been waiting for Mack’s story for what feels like a life-time, so you can imagine my elation when he finally entered my life.

    was phenomenal and I would expect nothing less from such an amazingly talented story teller. The plot drew me in instantaneously and kept me captivated throughout, and in true Jackson fashion, the writing was like pure poetry.

    was an angsty, emotional and heartbreaking story about second chances. A love so powerful that while it was lost, you knew it was always destined to be found once more.

    Mack and Izzy have been each-others constant for as long as they can remember, and as they grew older, their life-long friendship developed into so much more. It was a love that knew no bounds. Mack suddenly decided to end their relationship and, in the process left Izzy confused and broken hearted. Mack had his reasons for ending their relationship as he felt he was doing her favor. He thought he was no good for her; but try telling Izzy losing the one person who meant the world to her was for her own good. Izzy makes the decision to leave everything behind and move from the only home she has ever known.

    Years down the track Izzy and Mack have come face to face once more and Mack is a tortured and broken man who has so many scars to bear. The love he has always felt for Izzy comes back full force when he sees the one woman who has always owned his heart. His love for Izzy is intense, deep and fierce. He’s lost her once before; will he be able to let the past and his demons go and give into the one and only woman he has loved with all of his heart?

    Mack is probably my favorite hero to date; he is loyal, protective, caring and loves deeply. He is a tortured hero I just could not help but feel so deeply for. Izzy was just a phenomenal, strong, caring and sweet heroine, who has had her fair share of struggles and heartache, but every time she gets knocked down, she gets right back up with such strength. A true inspiration.

    Their love and connection was profound, deep and the kind of love they both deserve. They were both remarkable people who deserved all the happiness and love they could handle. I was rooting for them throughout the whole story and wanted nothing more than to see them have the HEA they were oh so deserving of.

    I’m not always a fan of sequences set in the past and present because I don’t feel they always work, they often affect the flow of the scenes, but A.L. Jackson wrote both to perfection. They both flowed seamlessly and never once did I feel like it affected the story in any sort of negative way.

    was such an emotional, angsty, heartbreaking story about second-chances, love lost and love found and the gift of forgiveness. I was addicted to this compelling story from the very first word and was invested in Mack and Izzy’s tumultuous and heart aching journey until the very end. A.L. Jackson’s writing is outstanding and she always draws me in with her poignant and thought provoking stories that I just can’t get enough of. She has always been a one click author for me and always will be. She writes the kind of books I ache for; the tortured hero’s and the woman they love who are the only ones with the power to help them. I can not recommend this story enough, especially for those who love their emotional second chance love stories. Be sure to one click this one.

    Mack has my heart. I knew early on in the series that I’d fall head over heels in love with him and boy did I. He’s so caring and giving. The love he feels for Izzy and his willingness to sacrifice his happiness for hers is everything. Their love story was truly an epic experience.

    Izzy such a great character. A mom trying to do the best for her family. That’s one of the reasons I’ve loved this series of books so much. The female leads have struggles, but their kids keep them grounded and strong. I’m also total much for cute kids. Gah! They get me every single time!!

    This second chance love story is everything you’ll ever want in a romance. It’s emotional (yes there were tears), sexy, and heartwarming. All the feels were definitely felt. I give it my highest recommendation!

There were a lot of obstacles in their way but I knew from the beginning that they belonged together and was rooting for them to make it work.

    If you know me then you know that I'm not the biggest fan of flashbacks in my books. But the few that were put into this story were absolutely amazing and I wouldn't wish them away. Seeing Izzy and Mack as kids was so friggin adorable and only had me loving them harder. It was really fun to see that even as adults with yeas apart between them they never lost that connection from when they were younger.

    Overall, I'm so happy I read this story and got to experience a love like Mack and Izzy's. I would say this could definitely be read as a standalone, though there's maybe one or two things from the previous book that some would consider a spoiler.

    Pieces Of Us is an emotional, heartwarming second chance romance that will give the saying Endless Love a new meaning. The angst will call to us, the characters will make us feel more than what we could’ve bargained for, but it’s the love that will be never ending and through it all, not only will you feel it, but you will never forget it.

    Best friends since they were young, Mack and Izzy had been through a lot together. As they got older, that friendship turned into something much more and grew a love that would go beyond their time. They knew that they were young but they had each other and that was the most important thing. Until one day Mack decided to change the course of their future forever altering their lives. One decision that will haunt him for the rest of his life.

    It’s now been thirteen years since Izzy has been in her hometown but now she’s back for good. With a new job and her parent’s full support, Izzy is looking forward to a fresh start.

    I’ve always enjoyed this author’s storytelling and this book was no different. The longing and remorse that bled through the pages of a second chance romance that you wanted to see have a beautiful ending were felt. I did have one issue though but aside from that, I loved the characters and I can’t wait to see what’s next.

    3.75 stars rounded up 4 emotional; charming, heartbreaking, second chance romantic stars.

    This is my first A. L. Jackson book. I wanted to start most of them but then read depressing reviews and changed my mind. But this time I took my chances and here I am, so satisfied with amazing heroine Izzy! Big applause to this strong woman after two men’s betrayal, she stood strong and cared her two children by herself when she was too young, lonely, vulnerable.

    Here comes our hero Mack, police officer, survivor but king of the worst decisions-and self destruction.

    I loved Izzy and Mack’s angsty, heart wrenching love story. I loved their chemistry.

    They are childhood sweethearts. When she was little,Izzy wrote a story to give him courage and save him from destruction. In the story she depicted him as dragon. Mack also names her little bird. But most parts of the book , I sensed that real dragon was Izzy. She was the savior of their love story, she was the protector of Mack. She was brave enough to face him for taking responsibility of their shared past.

    I was about to cut more points because of Mack’s dysfunctional relationship with Clarissa. But then I understood that she was the punishment he gave himself to atone his sins. It seems like unhealthy way of thinking but our hero is way too tormented one because of his abusive father and giving up his love of his life ( he thinks it was the best way to protect her which makes him the king of the worst decisions

    Finally I forgave him after I read the parts about his interactions with his sons( one of them not his biological son but he fully accepts him), his efforts to do the right thing to become a family.

    Summary: It was well written, captivating love and family story. So far I enjoyed it☺️
