Crystal’s Book World Blog Review:
5 Endless Stars!!!
Pieces of Us definitely left me on a book hangover that I will not be getting rid of anytime soon. Izzy and Mack’s story will bring you sorrow and hope. A.L. Jackson gives you everything you could ever ask for with our broken heroine and hero. I had a feeling Izzy had a huge secret that she has been keeping from Mack. And when it all unfolds, there is so much emotion and beauty within it all.
Mack is a dream and I could not help but want to protect him. Even though he plays the protector part so well. Izzy shows Mack his worth. The passion and love built through each word will have you glued to this book. Little Bird and Dragon will become a team and slay their monsters.
When the past slowly unveils itself, you can start to feel the pain and anguish. There is one thing that A.L. Jackson will give you and that is ALL THE FEELS. You will be pulled deep into the dark, and only hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel for these two.
I completely fell for Big Ben and Lil Dill. They made my heart smile. So much joy these two will bring to this story. Pieces of Us is real and raw. Mack will crawl under your skin and stay imprinted in your heart. I truly loved the Confession of the Heart series. Jace, Ian, and Mack are three men that you will always remember. #Endless
*Elite Blogger Exclusive and my favorite flashback in this story*
Flashback of Izzy at years old…
“I’m not gonna let you fall,” he told her, his voice sounding like laughter, climbing higher and higher, propelling himself up with his hands and feet, so fast she thought he might be flying.
He made it all the way up to where she was, and he looped an arm around her waist and hauled her up so she could sit on a branch, freeing the weight from her arms. And it felt so good and hurt all over and she was crying again.
She wanted to hug him and hug him and hug him.
“What you cryin’ for, Little Bird?”
Hiccupping, she wiped the tears and the snot from her face. “Cuz I didn’t wanna die. You saved me.”
He laughed. “I wasn’t gonna let you die, silly. I heard you, and I came running. That’s all you gotta do. Just start yellin’, and I’ll know when you need me to save you.”
She sniffled a little, a smile pulling to her face. “Okay. But what if you’re not strong enough?”
Except, he seemed pretty strong. Maybe even stronger than her daddy. Brave to come rushing right up that tree like it was nothin’.
“Psh. What are you talkin’ about? Don’t you know I’m a dragon?”
He flexed his scrawny arms, his biceps the size of tangerines.
“A dragon?” she asked, curiosity making her eyes pinch.
“Dragons are the strongest and the fastest and the fiercest. So scary. Just like me. Except you don’t gotta be afraid because I’m a good dragon. Even my mama says so.”
“Okay,” she agreed super fast because that sounded just fine to her.
Then he smiled softer. “Little Bird, Little Bird, stuck in a tree.”
She giggled, her heart feeling light. “Dragon, dragon, come and rescue me.”
He grinned so wide that she couldn’t help but laugh again. “That’s right. Just like that.”

We Are Endless…..
His head rocked back and forth, his body shaking, shoulders pumping up and down.
“Izzy,” he murmured, so low, my name a needy groan.
“Maxon.” I shouldn’t have said it because it came out sounding like a plea.
“Little Bird,” he whispered, his lips featherlight where he painted the words along the length of my jaw.
A gasp left me on a breath as a riot of sensation erupted. Tingles streaked, gooseflesh rising in an undulating wave.
“So pretty,” he mumbled.
He exhaled a breath that became mine.
Our noses brushed.
Back and forth.
Back and forth.
Oh, God, what was he doin’?
Flames flickered beneath the bare caress. The man my fire, my cold body begging to come alive under his scorching touch.
I whimpered, sagging against the wall when he stroked his hands down my sides and slipped them under my dress, palms riding up the outside of my thighs.
Better question was what I was doing. But there was no reason. No sanity in the middle of this.
No logic where heartbreak and hope met.
“You are so fucking sexy.” His confession was a growl. Deep and dark. “Do you have any idea what it was like sitting across from you all night? What it was like waking up with you asleep in my chair? Like staring at the sun, knowing you’ll go blind if you look for too long, and knowing taking in that beauty for even a second would be worth it.”
He nudged forward, erasing the space between us, and his hands spread wider.
Desire raced. A flashflood of need that shivered across my flesh.
His mouth traced the shell of my ear. “Want to stare at you forever. Get lost. Take you. Possess you. How’s it possible you’re here, Little Bird? You came back to me. Feel like I’m dreaming.”
“It was you who didn’t want me.”
His hands tightened on my thighs, tugging me forward against his hard body, eyes pinned on me. “There’s never been a single day in my life when I didn’t want you. We are endless.”
