His heart was turned off, until she turned him on . . .
This week we published the intensely hot Come to Me Recklessly by New York Times bestseller A.L. Jackson. If you haven’t yet encountered her Closer to You series, what are you waiting for?
Read on for the prologue below . . .
There are few things that hurt so much as a broken heart.
It doesn’t matter which way you slice it, analyze it, or add it up, you’ll always come up with the exact same sum. The worst part is there is no antidote for this affliction.
They say time mends all things.
I say they are liars.
Maybe time subdues, burying the pain beneath all the new memories we make, tucking it under the burdens and joys and new experiences that life layers on over the years.
But that broken heart?
It’s always right there, lying in wait. Ready to crush you when you’re slammed with that errant, unexpected thought.
But nothing could have prepared me for this— what it would feel like to look up and find him standing inches from me.
From the moment we met, he always had the power to bring me to my knees. I should have known his control over me would never diminish or dim.
I should have known it would only intensify.
Maybe I should have run.
But somewhere inside, I knew he’d never let me get far.
Want to know what happens next? Of course you do.

Love turned him off . . .
Christopher Moore gave up on the idea of 'the one' years ago. Now, his life is an endless string of parties and an even longer string of girls. Enjoying the perks with none of the emotional mess, he's convinced everyone that he's satisfied - everyone but himself.
Until she turned him on . . .
Samantha Schultz has moved on with her life. Finishing her student teaching and living with her boyfriend, she's deluded herself into believing she's content. But there is one boy she never forgot-her first love - and she keeps the memory of him locked up tight. She will never allow any man to break her the way Christopher did.
When Christopher's sister and her family move into a new neighborhood, Christopher is completely unprepared to find Samantha living at the end of the street. Memories and unspent desires send them on a collision course of sex, lies and lust. But when guilt and fear send Samantha running, Christopher will have to fight for what has always been his.
